Property Description

The number 11 appears everywhere in the former residence of the ambassador of the French royal family. There are 11 churches and chapels in the picturesque old town, 11 historic fountains between the patrician houses, and 11 museums. The Cathedral of St. Ursus, a towering symbol of the town, was built in 11 years, the façade is three times 11 metres tall, 11 bells hang in the tower, and the outer staircase is made up of three times 11 steps. And what do the locals enjoy drinking on the banks of the Aare? 'Öufi' (11) beer, of course. Magical moments can also be had without numbers games, though, such as in the rugged Verena Gorge, in the stork village, on a panoramic excursion to the Weissenstein mountain, or at the Film Festival.

The showers on the top floor did not lock. They claimed they were getting locks installed in the next couple of weeks, but what did they expect people to do in the meantime? In order to have a shower in a cubicle that locked, I had to ask reception to buzz me in to another floors bathroom, which meant I was limited to having a shower when reception was manned (which is only a few hours each day). The beds in my 10-person dorm were so close together, the mattresses touched.

Beware of the very late time that the desk opens for check in. I was still able to get into the building and leave my luggage in a locker though. I was on the first floor looking over the river, nice view but the street noise (restaurants) was very loud (luckily I can sleep with ear plugs in). It was quite warm too so we really did need the window open. The bed to toilet/shower ratio was high, luckily this was fine for me, but just something to think about.

Pros: - Nice rooms, spacious. - Brilliant free breakfast. - Great location. - Lift and (expensive) vending machine. Cons: - Staff quite unhelpful, gave no information. There's a tv lounge and a rooftop terrace?? I didn't know that until just now, would have been nice to know. - No guest kitchen, no laundry services. It was an okay place to stay but the staff need to be more helpful. I would not stay again as a backpacker due to lack of kitchen and having nowhere to charge my devices.
