Gem in Bern!
Fantastic hotel! Great location and very friendly. We were upgraded free of charge and they had one of our rooms ready when we got there early. Very helpful with luggage when we needed to store it for a few hours. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Definitely a place we would stay again!
