Tor Hôtel Review
Within easy walking distance of both the main train station and the lake, this nicely remodeled hotel occupies three upper floors of a building across from the English Church. Reception is on floor 3 and is staffed from 7 am to 11 pm—at other times your room key also opens the front door. The accommodations are divided into categories: The "compact" rooms overlook the back courtyard, so they are the quietest; "standard" and "family" rooms can accommodate up to four people. High ceilings and big windows are in keeping with an older building, while bare parquet floors, white walls, and modern furnishings and bathrooms create a minimalist, yet cheerful mood. Breakfast is included in the price, and is brought to your room between 7 and 9 am.

Just back less than a week ago from my 8 day/night solo trip to Bern.
Stayed in a 333 year-old building apartment (VRBO) a half block from Bern's famous Muenster and half a block from Clock Tower.
