We stayed at the Hotel Astoria on a one night visit to Bern, enroute from Paris to Milan. We arrivedon a rainy Sunday and everything was pretty much deserted. Not knowing where the hotel was, we took a short taxi ride. The Astoria is situated outside of the main historic part of the City. The tram system is easy to use, and it's only a short ride from the hotel to capital buildings and the shopping arcades.
The hotel itself is fresh, modern and clean. It was our first experience with the Swiss duvet bed covers and we couldn't really figure out whether we should sleep on or under the duvet. (Naive travelers that we were back then!) I think we sort of made ourselves into a taco.
The only negative was that there was some sort of tram transfer station next door and all night long the trains made a lot of groaning noises.
Unique Quality: An included buffet breakfast was a really nice way to start the day. The hotel also serves dinners but we didn't eat there.
