Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Allegro Bern
Modern and convenient
We booked a park view comfort room and were upgraded to a room with city view and balcony on the third floor. The room was ultra-clean, well maintained and had a modern look to. Bathroom featured a bathtub and the toilet was separated by a wall. Breakfast buffet was sumptous, for example orange juice was pressed right before your eyes. Hotel is reachable from the main station by tram line no. 9 (only 3 stops) and is only a short stroll away from Bern's beautiful old town. Entrance fee for the adjacent casino is included in the room rate. Hotel offers various interesting dinner specials in conjunction with a casino visit.
Great, well located hotel
As honeymooners we got a nice upgrade in this beautiful and modern hotel. From our room, which was big, clean and very nice, we had a beautiful look over the old city. Remember that we had an upgrade. I don't think a standard room does have this view because you must be on one of the top floors. Service was very good, they even brought fruit to our room when we were out for a walk.
It was lovely to eat in the garden and hear the water flowing in the fountains. It was a very short walk to the city centre. A casino is available in the hotel.
Lunch, dinner and breakfast were all great with lots of choice. Although they don't have a swimming pool they have a sauna, turkish steambath and jacuzzi.
The value for money is superb.
We spent three nights at the allegro and it was very nice. I too found a great deal on the net. The rooms were very modern, the hotel clean and extremely busy. It was nicely located by old town with a tram that stops right in front. It took five minutes to walk into the heart of old town. The staff was very helpful, but only a couple of people spoke good English. We received complimentary drinks while we waited for our rooms. Be sure to get the panorama club rooms - we had a fabulous view of old town.
The only thing I would warn people about is the restaurant. They had an unfriendly staff, couldn't communicate with us, didn't offer us a menu and handed us croissants in a napkins with no plates or jam etc. The wait staff was rude and we were very frustrated. The German speaking customers had all the help, menus, etc. we tried to speak the language but the waiter rolled his eyes at us. But in all, that was the only thing we found wrong with the hotel and chose to eat elsewhere in the morning. But I would stay here again and tell others, it was a great value and they offered free internet access to their guests!
We stayed there for a night. I had a good rate on the net. The hotel is conveniently located, close to the old town (just crossing a bridge). Beautiful lobby and rooms, great service, nice people. The food is good. The view from the Casino terrasse on the roof is amazing. They also give you a bike for free to go to downtown. I just have good things to say about the hotel. Parking is about 24 francs for 24 hours. Will definitely go back there again.
Very close to the old town, 2 minute ride on the tram which stops right in front of the hotel. Rooms are very well furnished. Great buffet breakfast.
Regretted staying for only 1 night
Good hotel, ripoff restaurant
My wife and I stayed at the Allegro two nights and dined at its restaurant, Allegretto. The second night we decided to economize by ordering a "house wine" with dinner. Not seeing one on the wine list, we asked the (English-speaking) waiter if they had a house wine, and he said yes, red or white? We ordered a half carafe of red. At the end of the meal we were charged 45 Swiss francs (=$35), an outrageous price. (In fact, the same price they charged for a half bottle of Gevry Chambertin, one of the best red wines in the world!) When we protested, we were told there was "a language problem." They refused to adjust the price and basically said it was all our fault. I suppose, in hindsight, we should have asked about the price in the first place -- we just assumed a house wine would be inexpensive. But still a ripoff.
Fantastic Fantastic Fantastic!
We stayed at the Allegro Grand Casino Bern for two nights in May 2005. What an amazing hotel. Not only were the rooms spotlessly clean and roomy, the staff went above and beyond the call of duty in helping us plan our time around Bern.
We upgraded our room to the Panaroma Club - and were NOT disappointed. The views were incredible. The hotel is quiet and clean - and just across the river from the hustle of town. I would strongly recommend the hotel for anyone wanting to treat themselves.
Beautiful Bern Hotel!
This hotel was great! This was our last stop on a two week European vacation and we couldn't have been more pleased. Most hotels in Europe are small and not very comfortable, but the Allegro was quite different. The room was large and had every comfort of home (including down pillows and blankets). The breakfast was great and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Downtown Bern was just across the bridge within walking distance, which was very convenient. The hotel also had complimentary bicycles. I'd definitely recommend this hotel AND this city.
Wonderful hotel, very reasonably priced
During our extended trip to Europe, we stayed at about a dozen 4 and 5 star hotels, the Allegro Bern being our favorite. The Allegro Bern is not really a casino hotel, it's a lovely, new hotel with a small casino on the top level. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of Old Town and there's a tram (trolley) stop right in front of the hotel, if you wish to see the city by tram. The rooms are immaculate and spacious, with new, stylish furnishings (some with widescreen tvs). The included breakfast had a wonderful selection of cold and hot items and you can have an omelette made to order. Overall, a great value.

Stole the tile off Alanna. We were told there isnt much to do here in Bern and with Switzerland being very expensive, makes doing things even less. We wanted to go to the Einstein museum but for CHF18 each that wasn't going to happen. So we wandered around looking for pins. And these are 5+CHF each. We went and got coffee at starbucks. 2 coffees and 1 muffin was 16CHF!! Man we got 2 ...
The park included a restaurant and an amusement park for children with a miniature train, go carts and play equipment. We headed up the hill past the fields of yellow and purple wild flowers (not sour sobs and Salvation Jane) to climb up the staircase in the 25m tall wooden tower where we encountered some stiff breeze but amazing vistas. Louise was very brave and ventured up with me.
We then headed to the Rose Garden - The ...
... we boarded the German Railways ICE train which was already waiting in the platform and heading for Berlin.
These ICE trains are amazing machines and are extremely spacious inside. We travelled standard class which I was well impressed by. Each coach has about 4 compartments with 6 seats in each then open plan seating for the rest of the coach.
The loading gauge must be quite wide as the isles and walkways are extremely wide and easy to walk in without banging every ...
... visitors that the fellowship would be having that weekend. In the afternoon Susanne's other guests starting rocking up. We met Johan and Rizah from Holland with their baby girl Christina and also Ineke who is Pastor Piet's sister. We also met some other brothers and sisters from Holland who stayed for tea before we all headed down to the hall for a healing presentation full of great testimonies. On Saturday we did what saints do best - eating, fellowshipping and outreaching. ...
... France. To my displeasure I traveled 15 hours that day by train and began my morning at 6am with the lovely greetings of a friendly pick pocketer. Luckily I am a morning person, and this young fellow in return for pulling my wallet out of my purse got slapped hard enough to shock both of us and part ways. Let's just say I didn't sleep much on that long train ride. Once in Nice I was greeted at a lovely party hostel, where I quickly made friends with the ...
