You will stay in a spacious and quiet 2 room apartment with private access, kitchen and bathroom as well as a terrasse.
The apartment is equipped to make you feel at home, so you can really enjoy your stay in the capital of Switzerland and can make your trips to the surrounding alps, lakes and smaller cities at leisure.
There are two large beds for two, a single bed and 1 mattress for additional guests.
The neighbourhood is quiet, but very close to everything you want to see and do.
Seeing the sights in Bern (eg the bears, the house of parliament, the clock tower, the bridges, the rose garden, the churches, Stade the Suisse) can be done easily without much travelling and seeing famous parts of Switzerland such as the alps, the lakes and the cheese and chocolate making factories will not take you more than a day's trip. Good food, shopping and nightlife will round your stay off beautifully.
Bern is 15 minutes away. From the apartment you can be at the next train or bus station in 5 minutes, or access the highway in just as little time. To see the alps count a little more than 1 hour and the closest lake can be reached in 30 minutes. If you are coming from an airport, we will be glad to pick you up against a charge.
We will gladly help you out with information on public transport, things worth doing and seeing and any other requests you might have. As our guest, you are first priority!
We speak English and Arabic, nous parlons le français et l'italien. Wir sprechen Deutsch.
Parking spots can be found in the neighbourhood quite easily (blue zone: 1.5 h during the day, unlimited at night) or rent our private parking spot for 10CHF/day (official city prices: 9CHF/4h or 16CHF/24h).
We are a friendly small family with a little girl. Coming from different cultures and having lived in various countries we are open and curious to meet people from all over the world. We live a quiet life as teacher and engineer and most of all, enjoying our daughter grow up.
I was pleased to find how close public transportation was which made getting around very easy. The bedrooms were spacious. The living room was small but we didn't spend any time there. The property was clean and well maintained. The owners communicated wit us so that we could have a set time to arrive and leave.
Sonja was very kind and helpful. She upgraded us to a different apartment with no additional charge. We were able to find street parking and easily access the apartment. Everything was very tidy and she has particular rules to help ensure you can keep it that way. We had a great time and this accommodation made things worry free during our stay.
Sonja moved us into a different apartment because we had extra guests coming to stay with us while we were in Switzerland. So while I can't speak for this exact listing, I can tell you that Sonja was very welcoming and very helpful throughout our stay. The apartment was clean and furnishings were comfortable. She quickly answered any questions I had and made sure we had everything we needed. We had a water heater problem during our stay and she was able to fix it the same day. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others!
We have only good things to say about our stay in Sonja's apartment! The property was very clean and well-maintained, with all the amenities you need for a brief stay. There is a bakery on the corner, a Coop grocery store within easy walking distance, and a bus stop nearby (with a line that goes to the city center, so you can leave your car parked near the apartment).
Sonja herself made our stay 5+ stars. She answered all of my email questions thoroughly and quickly before our stay; she gave us clear directions to the neighborhood and then drove us around to show us where to unload our car and where to park; she had set up a special bed for our baby before we arrived; when we realized we hadn't brought our electric outlet adaptor, she let us borrow one of hers. She was extremely kind and understanding when our 3-year-old accidentally brought home a trinket from the apartment!
We will certainly stay in Sonja's apartment again when we return to Bern! We highly recommend it.
Though we finally couldn´t go to the place, she gave us a lot of facilities and she was very helpful with everything.
She is a very good person and she tries to undestand you in everything you need. She was really kind, pleasant, attentive, thoughtful, considerate, hearty and easy-going.
