Travel Blogs from Bern
We arrived at our hotel a couple of hours ago. I've been trying to catch up on the blog since it's been a couple of days. The hotel is nice and there is a casino on the 5th floor. We have free passes to get in but who knows if we'll go (too exhausted).
Tomorrow we plan to visit the Jungfrau Region - another area with lots of mountains. …
The part of Switzerland in which I am living and working is called the Bern region. Why I here you ask? Because the municipal city in the area is called Bern. Not that riveting an answer! On Wednesday we had a day off so decided to cruise the fifty-minute drive to the capital to get a feel for the city.
First impressions are that it is very tourist centric, cameras and Swiss baseball caps ...
So after another early train ride, I went from Lausanne to Bern for a day trip. Once there, I refused to pay the 7CHF to store my bag in the lockers at the train station, so I carried it all morning. It was also quite a bit colder than Lausanne so I put my long pants on top of my shorts and put on my hoodie. I started by going towards the bear park. I walked down this old road, which only allow street cars and select cars. It was unique because of all the flags hanging from the buildings. ...
... Bern, I always have. It's a city built on the river side, so old, so gorgeous and it oozes history and ancient tales from it's cobble stone streets and hundred year old bridges. It's not like Zurich, where nearly all of the buildings are new or on every street there is a building site. Bern has persevered it's history through its buildings, houses, shops and streets.The people of Bern have a reputation for being slow. Slow drivers, slow talkers, slow ...
... in the afternoon. We will only be staying here one night because it is so expensive!
Backpack free, we made our way to the Cailler chocolate Factory about an hour away by train. Thank goodness for our train passes. We had to sample some Swiss chocolate. We went on a pretty interesting tour that gave the history of chocolate and of the company. The tour lasted about forty five minutes and then it was a self guided walk. We sampled different cacao beans from around the ...

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.
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
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.
