  • About this holiday

    A contemporary and elegant four star superior hotel, the Hotel Allegro offers a blend of modern indulgence and historic and cultural sights. With the historic old town of Bern just on your doorstep, characterised by hilltop pointed roofs and colourful houses, guests are free to explore these atmospheric streets, before returning to their chic and sumptuous room, the hotel spa, and the Michelin-starred restaurant in the evenings. We would highly recommend staying for a few nights at the Hotel Allegro as part of a rail touring holiday around Switzerland, or for a week or so as part of a single- or two-centre holiday.

    The Hotel Allegro can be used as a stand-alone fly-drive or rail holiday, or can be combined with other hotels in Switzerland or the neighbouring countries to form a longer rail tour. Hotel Allegro is less than a 20 minute walk from Bern’s main train station.

    Our opinion

    The Hotel Allegro is a contemporary, chic hotel offering the best of both worlds: comfortable modern living beside some of Bern’s best restaurants and attractions, with easy access to the old town.

    Hotel description

    The four star superior Hotel Allegro in Bern offers strikingly modern accommodation close to the banks of the Aare River and Bern’s picturesque old town. Housed within the Kursaal building, guests are drawn in through a canopied entrance lined by trees and preened foliage, into an interior dominated by glass and sleek dark lines. Once in your room, soothing colours and sumptuous fabrics take over. Broadway-styled Economy rooms introduce bursts of vibrant reds and silver, accompanied by themed furnishings, while the Asian-styled rooms are built around modern mood-lighting and soft greens. The larger rooms and suites continue to be unique in their design, with each room featuring a signature piece of furniture, and wide windows that make the most of the spectacular views across Bern. After spending the day in Bern, return to the hotel to enjoy Michelin-starred cuisine in the Meridiano Restaurant, which serves delicious picture-perfect dishes built around quality ingredients sourced in Switzerland, and speciality produce such as cheese from Italy. Restaurant Yù serves authentic Asian cuisine, freshly prepared in the open kitchen and served in a restaurant atmospherically lit by the bubbling blue aquariums built into the walls. The Giardino Restaurant serves quintessentially Mediterranean dishes on a sunlit terrace, and, after dinner, the Allegro Bar serves cocktails, coffees, and other aperitifs either outside or in the sultry bar lounge. Free admission to the Grand Casino may appeal to those who enjoy vibrant nightlife, though admission to the relaxing spa is also included, allowing guests to enjoy the full level of luxury provided by the Allegro. Stay at the Hotel Allegro for a week-long relaxing break, or combine a few nights of Hotel Allegro luxury with a more rustic, rural indulgence in some of our other Swiss hotels to form a longer rail touring holiday exploring the smaller villages and Alpine landscapes outside of Bern.


    In the centre of Bern, near the Aare River bank, close to the opera house and the Zytglogge clock tower.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    During your stay in Bern, we recommend conducting a self-guided tour around the town, stopping off at the key cultural and historic sites. Perhaps begin with the Federal Palace of Switzerland, with its magnificent domed hall and majestic exterior. Visit the Bern Historical Museum, the second largest historical museum in Switzerland and reminiscent of an old castle. The Natural History Museum is known for its life-size dioramas. Then, perhaps move on to the Zentrum Paul Klee, which exhibits over 4000 of Klee’s works, or the Swiss Alpine Museum, which hosts temporary exhibitions with mountain themes. More artwork can be seen at the Museum of Fine Arts or the Kunsthalle. The Zytglogge mechanical clock tower is an iconic symbol for Bern, as are the brown bears in the Bärengraben Park. The town’s religious history can be explored in the 15th century Bern Minster, which has a spectacular and unusual tower, the Nydeggkirche, and the imposing Church of the Holy Ghost. To complete your tour, visit the 16th century Kindlifresserbrunnen fountain, the Münsterplatz, or the Moossee Lake just outside of Bern.

    Sports nearby

    Swimming, biking, hiking, river rafting, kayaking, paddle-boarding, hot air balloon rides, skiing (winter), and golf.


    Additional beds and cots can be added to the Panorama Family Rooms.
