Ich lebe seit Jahren in Bern, arbeite für das Schweizerische Rote Kreuz und bin gerne Gastgeber.
Ein sehr schönes Zimmer mit Blick auf die Berge! Sehr freundlicher , hilfsbereiter und unkomplizierter Gastgeber mit beeindruckender Kochbuchsammlung! Alles neu und sehr sauber. Es war insgesamt ein sehr angenehmer Aufenthalt in Bern.
Beautiful, clean and comfortable apartment in a quiet neighbourhood. Easy walk to the centre or close to public transportation. Josef met us at the train station as planned and brought us to his place. He made us feel very welcome. We would definitely stay there again should we ever return to Bern; highly recommended to anyone looking for an affordable and stylish place to stay!
Sehr angenehmer und unkomplizierter Gastgeber. Geräumiges und sehr schönes Zimmer.
Josef was very kind and helpful. We had some difficulties at the train station making reservations so we were a little late and he came down there to meet us and took us to his apartment, even cooked us a little something. It's a cozy room with a balcony and your private bathroom is right next door. He let us keep some food in his fridge, you have to make your own meals but we were not there very much anyhow so it wasn't an issue for us. I would recommend this place. It is smoke free too!
Josef's home is in a beautiful, quiet, convenient location. It was a short bus ride (or 20 minute walk) from central Bern, close to the river, and near a number of cute restaurants and cafes. The apartment itself is spotlessly clean, spacious, and very modern, with a stunning view of the city.
Communicating and checking in/out with Josef was straightforward and easy to do. I highly recommend staying here when visiting Bern.
We have stayed in Josef’s house for 04 nights. We arrived in Bern at night and Josef was in his house waiting for us. He showed us everything and there were flowers in our room. His apartment is very big, organized and beautiful. He said that his house was ours and that we could use his kitchen for cooking and having ours meals. He was very polite and respectful with us. He gave us map, suggestions and so much information about how to know Bern and other cities around there. We learned a lot about that country with Josef. We got so satisfied and happy to stay with him. He is a very nice guy. Conceição e Marcelo, from Brazil.
We can’t thank Josef enough for his hospitality, kindness, and generosity. He made our stay in Bern a really special experience. Josef is a very interesting person to have a conversation with, a wonderful cook, and a very thoughtful host.
The apartment is very spacious, bright, elegant, tastefully decorated, and spotless. It has a breathtaking view of the city and the Alps. The place is located in a quiet neighborhood very close to the river. A bus stop is about 200 yards away. The main train station is four bus stops away.
We would absolutely recommend Josef’s apartment to anyone looking for a great and memorable place to stay in Bern.
Josef, we thank you for your hospitality, for great conversations we had, and for the amazing dinner you cooked for us!
insiema alla mia fidanzata abbiamo passato una settimana di vacanza a casa di josef. è una persona molto ospitale gentile e molto disponibile,ci ha indicato dei posti e dei ristoranti ok, è amante della buona musica la cucina è molto cordiale ed è una persona ospitale. grazie ancora josef.
We really enjoyed our time with you, Josef. It was too short. Your place is spacious and quiet with a great view from the balcony. The old town was easily accessible by foot or bus. We found the free bike rental downtown and the brewery across the bridge! You are a great host, Josef, and I hope we meet again.
Josef was a delightful, thoughtful and lovely host. Due to unforseen circumstances, I had a number of late changes to my arrival time, and as I kept in touch with Josef about these changes, he was very accommodating and kind, and kindly agreed to meet me at the train station in Bern upon my arrival despite my arrival being (unexpectedly) late at night. He was very welcoming, delightful company and a very thoughtful and generous soul. For me this kind of AirBnB experience is one which enriches my faith in humans. Josef is a very interesting person to speak with and the apartment is a beautiful place to stay. I hope to stay again one day if opportunity brings me back to Bern.
