This is an excellent hotel. It is top of the range but if you can afford it, it is well worth it. The manager and staff are completely welcoming and helpful, the view of the alps is splendid, the rooms are lovely, the breakfasts are sumptuous, what more could you want in a lovely old city.

Binoculars for sightseeing out the window. Closet space in the... More

Bellevue combines stunning elegance (just look at the flowers behind the lobby) and highest possible comfort with a relaxed service minded atmosphere that makes you feel that you are at home. The staff has an openminded and very personal contact, based on a long experience and confidence in their solid skills. The breakfast venue (with a view on the Alps),... More

Historical place in the heart of the city! Very nice and cosy bar even though you're on your own (which is not that commun!). Very large room with a nice view on the river. I like the idea to provide binoculars in the room to enjoy the view! Great staff as well!

We stayed for 4 nights in this lovely hotel by the water. Be sure to check for exact directions in advance, as the GPS on my phone kept changing its mind. It turns out it is a 7 minute or so walk from the train station. However, once we got there, we were extremely happy. The room was comfortable, verty... More

Bellevue Palace is one of the few 5 stars Hotels in Switzerland untouched by the experience of time. The Hotel Lobby is monumental, rooms are large and well equipped (be sure you avoid smoking rooms which are unpleasant). The breakfast is outstanding. The location of the Hotel in Bern city center, overlooking the river is marvelous. Service is excellent. Everybody... More
