        Individual guest reviews

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Arabelle was a basic, clean and affordable hotel with minimum amenities. Situated in a mixed residential/retail quarter of Bern, it is 15 min walk from the old quarter and the botanical gardens. The european breakfast buffet had the usual breads, meats, cheeses, yogurts and cereals and a very welcome caffine machine.

          The room was somewhat dated in furnishings which would suggest the price was a little steep as I've stayed in simular hotels in Germany for about a third less cost.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The staff were friendly and very helpful and served a great breakfast. This is one of the largest room we have had on this trip. Good location, just about 4 blocks uphill from the main train station in the University area..

          Very expensive but that is Switzerland!

        • Family with children
          7.0

          Very quiet place and really close to city center (10-15 minutes walk)

          Lady at the reception usually does not smile. She only answers your questions with a serious face and that's all...

        • Single
          7.4

          Although I booked the hotel, i was not registered at the desk.Still they had a room available.

        • Single
          7.4

          I was very impressed with this hotel so this was my second stay. The room this time was at the back and more quiet. The breakfast selection is very good.

          A minor thing was the older wooden flooring which creaks loudly when one walks on it. It is two or three bus stops from the entrances to the train station and quite a walk with heavy bags.

        • Single
          6.6

          The staff was very present, nice and helpful.

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          Cleanliness

          Internet connection didn't work at all, although internet connection was one of the deciding factors that I choose this hotel. Normally Internet connection doesn't seem to be working, judging from the staff's attitude.

        • Single
          7.8

          Minimalist but comfortable.

          Details on how to get to the hotel from Train station, not very clear from the map.

        • Single
          7.8

          Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly, breakfast was delicious, room was very comfy. Superb value for money.

          Abit far by walking from the train station (about 15-20 mins), but there is a short-cut through the University, which saves about 5 mins,

        • Single
          9.6

          Friendly, helpful desk service and breakfast service.

          Paying CHF 15.00 for 3 hours wireless internet access is ridiculous.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Spacious room with nice decor. The staff were kind and helpful.

          Free wifi in the room should be provided. The proximity to the Bahnhof is a question though there's a bus no.12 leading there in only 3 stops.

        • Single
          5.8

          The room is big. Simple & clean.

          Hotel is not far to main station, but it's hard to carry big luggage since the way was a long slope. The rooms are in another building which you need to go through the backyard of the hotel and not convenient for big luggage since there're few stairs up & down. It says there's wifi service in the public area & is free of charge, this is a lie. There's only a computer room with landline computer for internet service. No wi- fi in the public area. And it was such a damn old computer which the date was still on year of 2008. I cannot check train schedule because it's outdated. When I check with the staff, she was not happy on the face and cannot fix the correct date. And the computer is set with German language which is not for international customer. So it's meaningless to use their computer. It's a trick for this service which you have to buy the wi-fi card.

        • Single
          8.8

          Just what I needed after a long day of running a conference. Uncomplicated, no frills, perfect and friendly staff.

        • Couple
          6.6

          location and it is quiet. no street noise, yet few blocks from city center. had street view room with terrace, and wow, great view.

          expensive wifi. room dusty and not fully swept under bed b4 arrival (water bottle, some crumbs and dust).

        • Single
          8.8

          The mixture of simplicity, design and cosiness. Definitely liked the Artemide lamps in the room.

          Problematic was the forgotten wake-up call. Luckily I had a back-up alarm, otherwise I might have missed my flight.
