Hotel Bellevue on Mount Pilatus is one of the coolest places I have been to - the views are amazing. Breakfasts and dinners were fantastic and the hospitality was great! A two-night stay is the ideal amount of time!

We parked our car at Alpnachstad then took the cogwheel railway up Pilatus Kulm. The cogwheel railway which opened in 1889 is a remarkable engineering feat. Unfortunately, we couldn't fully enjoyed the view because it was cloudy halfway up the mountain; however, we can imagine how dramatic the view could be on a clear day. The dinner is served in...

This hotel is located just 10 minutes from Luzern. It is right on the bus line and very easy to access. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The receptionists were all very friendly and helpful. The room was on the smaller side but had plenty of space for the two of us. The beds were really comfortable. We had... More

Had a great stay at the Bellevue. My wife was a little concerned as the Cable Car made its way up and over the clouds up to the peak. Upon arrival, we were met by name, and shown to our room. OK, they are not the most modern, and a little dated, but you really are paying for the view.... More

Impeccable, friendly service (as we found throughout Switzerland), spotless accommodation, excellent food, exemplary hospitality and simply fantastic views! We only spent one night in the hotel but one could justify a longer stay and take advantage of the walking facilities, provided one has a good head for heights! The adjoining hotel (Kulm) should be operational in August 2010, subsequent to... More

An unlikely place and a wonderful experience. Go when the weather is good for the best views, as the hotel is above the cloud line. Go up, dine and stay the night, then hike back down the next day. Awsome.

This is a piece of paradise on the Pilatus hill. My package included round trip tickets to the hill top on a funicular rail and two cable cars, dinner and breakfast. The dinner was amazing and the Swiss Cheese Fondue on a candlelight dinner with my loved one for my honeymoon was a dream come true for me! The staff... More

We booked the special deal from the Pilatus website, which included the Pilatus-bahn funicular and cable car tickets, a room in the Bellevue, and a choice of six set menus. The location really can't be beaten in the area for the amazing view, the only disadvantage being that we felt a little bit cut off from the world as once... More
