Well located, uncomfortable rooms, unfriendly staff

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Nimrod S. Business - 05/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is clean and well located near a tram station and bernExpo. The rooms are big and well equipped but the bed is not comfortable, and the overall design of the room (like the toilet) is quite old, uncomfortable, and give you a cheap filling. The staff was a bit unfriendly and cold, maybe because of the harsh covid19 regulations and yet the attitude should a one of “can do”. Breakfast was ok but no more.

Dear Mr. S. We are glad that you appreciate our central location. I am sorry that you were a little disappointed with the room facilities and our bed. If there is anything we can do during your stay, please let us know. We hope to welcome you back to our hotel soon. With kind regards Jessica Novotel Bern Expo

Karin Families - 31/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Friendly staff, nice breakfast, great location. I especially liked the breakfast box that was prepared for my daughter as she had to leave the hotel at 6.30 and before the breakfast officially opened.

Dear Karin, Thank you for your visit and for the great feedback, we are happy to share this with the team. We wish you the best in all your future travels. We hope to see you again soon in our hotel. Your Novotel Bern Expo Team with Javier Iglesias

Wouldn't look for another hotel next time

Achraf Families - 23/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Every thing was satisfying. I would gladly book there again. The room was a bit old but very comfortable. I liked the idea of having public transportation tickets for free. The only negative point that I would mention is: the light of the bathroom was weak.

Hello from Bern dear Achraf, Thank you for staying with us and the great feedback, we are happy to share this with Jamil. We wish you the best in all your future travels and we hope to see you again very soon in our hotel. Best regards, Your Novotel Bern Expo Team with Javier Iglesias

Lovely stay

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Sonja Solo - 19/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I purely picked Novotel for the fact that it had a nice looking bathtub (I wanted a bit of luxury for my birthday) but got so much more than that! The receptionist went an extra mile to talk with the kitchen staff to find out wether there was (and if so, what kind) vegan dinner possibility and what options there would be for breakfast with my diet restrictions. She was super lovely and helpful and already made me feel so positive and cheery and I was only just checking in. The room itself was great, spacious and super clean. Loved my dinner experience but sadly missed the breakfast due to oversleeping. The location was great, slightly tucked away but an easy walk or a short tram ride away from the centre (the hotel also offers a free public transport ticket for the duration of your stay, yay). For fellow vegans there's a 100% plant-based bakery/cafe only five minute walk away, called the BakeryBakery. What took me by a complete surprise was after my long(ish) day exploring Bern I came back to my room only to find it decorated with balloons and party streamers as well as some snacks and a birthday note from the general hotel manager. I haven't asked for anything nor mentioned my birthday at all so this really took me off guard and made me so happy! Thank you Matthias! So thoughtful. Overall 6/5 experience and can highly recommend this to anyone who is visiting Bern.

Dear Sonja , WOW :) We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at Novotel Bern.It is always a pleasure to receive such a lovely and honest feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services.

Manager of the restaurant very rude

Customer review rating 0.5/5

Pietro Families - 30/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I had a reservation at the ibis hotel. When I arrived I went into novatel to ask where the IBIS entrance was and was told it was a bit far (later finding out it was just behind the building) and he updated my booking by moving to novatel as I had to additionally pay a fee of 60.- for the dog. The hotel furniture is dated and should be updated and the service not 4 star. I ate one evening at the hotel restaurant where I ordered a dish that I was unable to eat because of its unpresentable taste and appearance. I asked not to pay for that dish that I didn't even touch and the manager was very rude starting to raise her voice as if to ask for the attention of all the people present at the tables who turned around. I do not recommend this hotel it would have been better to stay at IBIS.

Lovely location near the Wankdorf Stadium and Rose Garden

M3560PWinfo Business - 11/09/2020 TripAdvisor review

one day prior to my stay at the novotel, i received a phone call from your staff explaining that the hotel was closing down for 2 weeks due to corona infection cases. the lady was so kind to get me a room at another hotel not too far away. that hotel as well as the room and the service were very good. unfortunately, i'll have to wait for your hotel to reopen and for another business trip to be necessary before being able to deliver any evaluation or feedback. thank you

Hei M3450PWinfo, thank you very much for your feedback on the situation we were into. AND, that you are so comprehensive and willing to visit us soon again! You're rating is unfortunately made with a 1* - and honestly - I think you did not want to do so among your wording. We would be very glad in case you could remove or modify this. We are very looking forward to welcome you very soon again (as from the 15.09.2020, we're back in the game)! All the best Matthias and team

sanderluijten Business - 19/06/2020 TripAdvisor review

perfect and accurate - swiss performance - as usually well organized and good performance. good location close to the city and the free public transport card is very good and convenient to use as the tramway stops in front of the Novotel.

Hey sanderluijten, you deserved a big and loud "thank you"! Even if we could not provide all services as usual due to the Corona-Regulation, you provide us such a nice mark. It's the very best motivation for our crew. We would be glad to welcome you again in future. Let us know in case we can do something for you. Take care and have a great summer time. The team with Matthias, General Manager

Xmas stay overnight in Berne

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

DanHeiter Couples - 01/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

Always great to come back to Berne and stay overnight in the Novotel Expo. Nice people and the rooms are very clean. Directly from the highway you are in few minutes at the hotel. From there to the center of Berne you can use the pass free of charge offered by the hotel with the tramway in 10 minutes.

Dear Guest Thank you very much for your review. We are looking forward to welcoming you soon again

Excellent hotel for a one night sleepover

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

frank h Family - 29/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

Known and reliable Accor-group quality. Free tramway tickets to discover the nearby beautiful historical centre. We found out too late that the bar and the hotel restaurant were closed on Saturday and Sunday. Finding a decent restaurant in Bern, open on Sunday evening, turned out to be a real challenge... When traveling by car, the hotel entrance is very difficult to find (we arrived after dark).

Dear Guest Thank you very much for your review. We are looking forward to welcoming you soon again.

cbonsall Couples - 12/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

Everything I have come to expect with Novotel. Not exactly in a central location, but you receive a a Bern visitor card which gives you free public transport for 24 hours ... and the hotel is very near a tram stop. More expensive than many Novotels, but then this is Switzerland!

David S Couples - 06/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

Hotel was in a good location for public transport. Room was OK but bathroom vanity could do with a clean with Ajax. We stayed on a Sunday night and was very surprised for a big city that the hotel restaurant was unavailable for guests. It was a rainy evening and we had to find a place elsewhere for dinner.

Hi David S, thank you very much for your valuable review. Cool that you have felt comfortable globally. On Sundays we usually don't provide restaurant services because of economical reasons. My colleagues should normally be very motivated to provide suggestions for all kind of preferred food and drink locations. Either nearby or with delivery service. I apologize that this had an impact on your impression and experience with us. All the best and take care, Matthias Beyeler
