HOTEL CLOSED DUE TO CASES OF CORONA INFECTION - SO DID NOT STAY AT YOUR HOTEL

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

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

As expected but no TV

All was fine, except that the TV had no signal

Some reception persons need to learn what politeness means

Customer review rating 4.3/5

Anonymous Business - 04/09/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

the receptionist had some vicious attitudes and words that he was trying to hide under a jovial mask. He was going far beyond his admitted role behavior giving me negative impressions about your hotel and my stay.

Short stay

I usually stay in Novotel Berlin each time I travel for work. Always had excellent experience. I wanted to share the experience with my family so decided to stay in Novotel Bern and was somewhat surprised over the stark difference between the two hotels. I wouldn’t say totally disappointed, but would rather say an oakayish stay. Overall the personnel is very pleasant and helpful. Reasonable parking fee. In Bern the hotel room is spacious, but quite old fashioned and some furniture need a bit of refurbishment. What made it more difficult is the bedding. Very uncomfortable pillows and beds as well as couch. It was the weakest point of the room. I would also strongly encourage having a soap dispenser not only over the bathtub but also the sink. As to wash hands he had to lean over the bathtub to get soap to wash on a sink .. not far of a distance but some flexibility and acrobatics were needed. :) Breakfast is very good, as usual! Although I must admit, that I prefer the one of Berlin’s Novotel.

Well located and hospitable

I arrived at the hotel with 2 colleagues who checked in before me. By the time I checked in, there was only 10 mins left until the kitchen/restaurant closed at a very early 8pm. If I had been informed on arrival, I could have delayed my check in and perhaps managed to have something to eat; there was no room service either. As a result, I had to go hungry a totally unnecessary and unnacceptable inconvenience. On check out, my invoice was incorrect and had to be forwarded by e-mail. Despite the e-mail being sent promptly, it too contained errors that would be unacceptable to my company's accounts section and I had to restart the process again by e-mail. To date I have had no response.

Bare bones 4 Star-ish business hotel

Customer review rating 4.3/5

C E. Business - 14/08/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I’ve stayed here multiple times, it’s a convenient hotel overall. It is also clean. However, the rooms are bare and with no personality even by Novotel‘s cookie cutter business hotel standards. Depending on which floor you’re on, views can be nice. The bar was already closed at 9pm but we got our free drinks from the snack fridge at the check in desk. There were no toothbrushes available (we had to stay unexpectedly). Check-in was friendly. The parking garage was almost full when we arrived and the parking spots are so tiny that it is hard to park a full sized car. So we were forced to find street parking which was easy but expensive. If you’re looking for a budget 4star (barely) Business Hotel this is a decent choice.

Dear Mr. E., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Novotel Bern Expo.

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.

Nice clean rooms with sofa and desk. Bed is good, TV, cofee in the room. Bathroom could just be a big larger ... on the other side has the convenience of both basth and shower. Restaurant and bar are absolutely okay, had a great dinner. Personeel is polite, friendly in a pleasant way. If there is a remark .... than it is that breakfast is good but too expensive.

Dear Mr.C., I am pleased you found our hotel suitable to your needs. Your recommendation is very much appreciated. I do hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back again when next visiting Bern. Best regards Novotel Bern
