    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Allegro Bern

    Modern and convenient

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Good hotel

    from

    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!

    Great hotel

    from

    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.

    Great hotel

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    A trip around the historic town of Bern 8-09-14

    Today after breakfast we walked to Wengen station to catch the 09h03 train down the pass to Lauterbrunnen. Down at the station as usual there was our little friendly station cat fast asleep in his basket in the ticket office. What a life he has.

    As per usual here in Switzerland our train arrived right on time. At Lauterbrunnen we changed trains for the journey to Interlaken which took about 50 minutes.

He said he saw and experienced things he never would have had he been staying at hotels and hostels with other tourists. He said experiences were positive, people were kind and excited to show him around, he often slept in his own room on a bed (not a couch), and he didn't have to wash their dishes. He said to show his appreciation he would often buy his ...

    After a short 1 hour drive we arrived in Berne. We were staying with a sister on the southern edge of the city in an area called Koniz. We arrived a little earlier than we anticipated so we went for a walk down the road and found ourselves immersed in charming Swiss farmland filled with the ringing of bells in the paddocks round about. It was so relaxing. We met up with our host, sister Susanne who Matt had met previously on another trip. We unpacked our bags and pretty much ...

    On my way back to Geneva airport I first stopped off in the capital city of Bern. Despite the storm I seemed to arrive in, the city had a real class and elegance to it and reminded me of London in some areas with a distinctly more Swiss feel. It's a busy city with plenty of grandeur in it's architecture, definitely worth mentioning is it's impressive Clock Tower.With only a few hours it was more of ...

    ... and go to the top of Europe, to Jungfraujoch, sitting at 3454m above sea level. To be walking down a city street, with the mountains steeply climbing up into the clouds, with their snow covered peaks, is magical to see. To catch a train (three trains actually) climbing to Europe’s highest railway station, was an experience. Even to be able to see nothing when at the top, with a total white-out, at -6 C, was still not a disappointment. The train trips ...
