The Space

My boyfriend Philippe and I rent out the living room (+ balcony) of our 3-room-flat. We're experienced AirBnB-hosts and we look forward to meeting you.

Your room is about 22 squaremeters, has a double bed, a sofa, a big table, a hatstand and a mirror. High quality bed linen, towels and flannels are provided for free. You can as well surf on the internet for free and smoke and relax on the balcony.

We now offer you to put a children's bed in the room, if you're traveling with a child.

You can use the kitchen, if you'd like to cook, prepare sandwiches etc. And you can drink Nescafé and tea for free! You will as well have your own shelf in the fridge.

Shower/bath tub are in one room, the toilet is separate. There's a washbasin and a mirror in both of them.

Our flat is situated in the nice neighborhood called Lorraine. From the mainstation/city center you can reach it in 5min. (by bus) respectively 15min. (by foot). Our guests always found it easily.
You can find a lot of nice cafés, restaurants and grocery shops just next door. Like we mentioned, it's really close to the city center, so you can reach sights, museums, nightclubs etc. easily at every time. If you want to take a walk or go swimming: the river and it's bank (5min. from our place) is a nice spot.

We offer you to use a simple bike for exploring the city.
You will get a map of Bern for free. We have as well a "secret list" of the best spots in Bern (our favourite places, restaurants...)which you will get.
On request (and extra fee) we can prepare you breakfast or any other meal, make a city tour etc. Just ask!

We haven't got our own washing machine, but there's a laudromat about 200m away from our flat. We can show it to you.

  • Laura & Philippe are wonderful hosts. Great to talk to with lots of info and suggestions for Bern. The room is very clean with lots of space. The location is great a 5 minute tram ride from the main station or a 20-30 minute walk (depending on your walking speed). It is also about a 20 minute walk to the old town or a 5 minute tram ride back to the main train station and a 5 minute walk into the old town. I would absolutely stay here again.

  • The appartment was located in a nice and quiet area, really close to the city centre, which we always reached on foot. The room was spacious and clean, and provided with wifi connection.
    Laura and Philippe were really nice and friendly, ready to give advice on where to go and what to see, we really enjoyed our stay!

  • Laura and Philippe are very nice hosts. They were easy and responsive to communicate with. As others said before, the place is very centrally located, not too far away from the central station. So it's (email hidden) for travellers using public transportations. They helped out with many things, Philippe even gave his salopettes for an ad-hoc skiing trip.

  • Der Aufenthalt bei Laura war sehr gut! Die Wohnung liegt wirklich sehr zentral, der Bus braucht nur 5 Minuten und man ist mitten im Zentrum von Bern. Die Bushaltestelle ist 3 Minuten zu Fuss entfernt.

    Das Zimmer ist groß, geräumig und sehr ruhig, sogar mit einem Balkon.

    Laura ist super freundlich, bei Anreise zeigt Sie einem Alles und hat Informationen über Bern und über das Berner Oberland zur Verfügung gestellt. Auch legt sie Adapter für die Steckdose bereit.

    Morgens bin ich sogar in den Genuss gekommen von Laura einen ganz leckeren Kaffee zubereitet zu kommen.

    Auch die Mitbenutzung der Küche ist super, ich habe zwar nicht gekocht, musste aber etwas im Kühlschrank deponieren.

    Alles in Allem ein sehr gelungener Aufenthalt, ich würde immer wieder bei Laura und ihrem Freund Phillippe übernachten.

  • We had a great time staying with Laura. The room was very nice, and they provided us with guidebooks and advice on things to do in Bern. They were also very gracious when our plans changed at the last minute.

  • It was nice to stay in Laura's flat. The train station is within a walking distance and Bern is such a fantastic old town with Alps in the background. The flat was more or less clean and tidy. Laura and Philippe were warm and welcoming. There were a lot of guidance about the town by Laura and also in the room.

  • Laura and Phillip's place was amazing. It was easy to find from the train station and was only a short walk away. Laura and Phillip were so kind, accomodating, and helpful. They gave us great tips about places to go in Bern. All of their recommendations were great and really made our experience there special. We loved our time in Bern and are so grateful to Laura and Phillip for making our stay so fun and pleasant. Their neighborhood was beautiful and quiet and conveniently located just outside of the center of town. We would definitely recommend and stay there again!!
