... to the top brought us to a great playground where small cars were available and all three kids raced around a track. Even Amelia stopped crashing into side rails and began her driving career. Wyatt was quite handy as long as he watched where he was going. Open small trains. And all kinds of things to climb on provided great entertainment. We met with our tour guide this afternoon and two ...
... what we wanted to do next or where we wanted to go so we all got to call out a random direction which was really fun, we ended up headed in the direction of my godparent's house so we decided to hang there for a while. Later we got word that a group of my godbrother's friends, ones we met at the party, were going go karting and asked if we wanted to tag along. So we all meet up at their usual meeting place, the Boomerang Pub, how fitting for this group and headed off in a ...
... to a white knuckle ride in his work car on the first night - jumping red lights and going round roundabouts the wrong way. A real adrenaline rush thanks Mike.
We explored the city on the first day, visiting a market with some lovely local produce (at eye watering prices), Einstein's house and saw the bears after which the city is named. We had a ride and BBQ with Mike and his friend Janya (not sure about that spelling - from Solvenia) down by the ...
... climb a small mountain that was fairly local. After hiking most of the morning we made it to the top. From there we had an awesome view of the city and other mountains. This part of the Alps is called the Jura mountains. They aren't real high, like the one we ascend at Eagle's Nest. On the way up the mountain there was another mountain bike race going on. We watch the race for a little bit, and took in the view before ...
... in, took our showers, and left to go do laundry. (High excitement, I know). We found a nearby laundromat with a helpful local woman in it. Her English was limited, but she was persistently helpful. The sun was out by this time, and we left our laundry in process and took another walk along the river. The water is such a beautiful aqua color, and the current moves much more quickly than the Columbia at home. On the other side of the street were beautiful ...

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.
