The Hotel Schweitzerhof Bern is a beautiful property with a wonderful, friendly Team. From the time you step into the foyer until checkout most are professional and helpful. The location is prime for visits into the country side or time spent in the city. This hotel has old world charm with modern amenities and works well with our business travel. We look forward to our next visit to this beautiful city!

Great service, nice hotel
Reviewed 6 days ago

if you enjoy going to hotels to experience some outstanding service, this is the place to go in Bern. The location is also extremely convenient, the staff as mentioned must be the best around. The rooms are comfortable with modern bathrooms. There is also a gym and a spa, both beautiful but on the small side.

Perfect stay
Reviewed 6 days ago

Staff were excellent! Loved the bar, loved the room, loved how close it was to the train station. The shower was amazing. In the end, the staff made this hotel all 5’s for me. And they had Ron Zacapa, so that’s a major plus

Very comfortable
Reviewed 1 week ago

Really conveniently located; near to the station and the old town. The rooms are very comfortable and clean; great bathrooms. The only hotel I know that has a cigar room. It is clearly very popular with the locals and a great way to unwind after dinner. the staff are charming.
