Visited this hotel in 1984 and again in 2015 and both times extremely happy with the stay for the amazing views. It takes your breath away being able to stay on the top of Mt Pilatus in a hotel and to wake up and see the sunrise from the top of the walk paths. Hotel accommodation was comfy clean and... More

Right, firstly you need to access the hotel by cable car or cog wheel train,which when we booked through Booking.com didn't inform you of this. The cable car & trains stop running before 5pm which we found out because we arrived after this,but thanks to a very helpful Swiss ticket office lady & Cog train driver we managed to jump... More

The Bellevue self-service café is a good place to stop a drink/snack at the top of Mount Pilatus. I can't say what food is available as they had stopped serving meals when they were there as they were closing soon. Drinks were fine though, particularly the hot chocolate, although they were very expensive. I can't say what the views from... More

We stayed there a few times and despite the fact that this was an older hotel we were very comfortable. Could not help singing songs from the sound of music! Right across from the train station and a local pub, the hotel is ideally located and good food too!

An excellent rating on Tripadvisor even after I went there on a day with lots of clouds surrounding the peak and With no view should go a long way to say that this is the hotel worth visiting. we got some glimpse during and morning and that was enough to take our breath away. Bellevue and the sister hotel Pilatus... More

The day starts and ends with only a few people at the top of Mt. pilatus because the first cable car isn't until 9 am and the last is at 5;45 or so. Otherwise the top is overrun with day trippers. The views are amazing though, and the rooms are sparse but clean and nice. Beds are ok. Dinner and... More

Bottom line, the rooms are really expensive and not that modern. However, this is not why you come to Hotel Bellevue on top of Mount Pilatus. The adventure of getting to this hotel is fantastic and the views are incredible. The advantage of staying the night on top of Mount Pilatus is that you virtually have the mountain to yourself...

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!

Sadly we only stayed one night, but it was one of the highlights of our trip. The Hotel Bellevue is worth the extra euros, from the breathtaking ride up the steepest railway in the world to get there, to the stunning views from your bedroom, to the gourmet 4-course meal at night. The manager, Beat, was so hospitable and made... More

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...
