Why this hotel? Superb central location in Bern

The historic Hotel Bären was established in 1850 and has been welcoming visitors ever since. This friendly hotel benefits from a fantastic location on the Bundesplatz, within close proximity of the Parliament building, the railway station and the lively centre of town with all its shops and restaurants. While the hotel does not have its own restaurant for evening meals, there are a huge number of quality establishments within minutes' walk and the hotel staff will be pleased to make a recommendation. Breakfast is served at the hotel and includes regional produce. While you are staying at the hotel you may like to use the small gym, or relax in the lobby where you can read the paper while enjoying a coffee. Wine and beer are also served here, perfect for a drink after having explored this beautiful city.
