The modern hotel and even the modern 5 star hotel is happening all around the world... and honestly I love it... BUT before that ever happened it was a hotel like this built in 1860 (or something like that) that set the bar for the classic hotelier. Situated next to the Parliament building and perched above the river Aare is...

Spending Christmas Eve at VUE and enjoying the gala dinner was a great idea. The food was amazing and service extremely professional. Big credits to the Patissier who created the dessert: a winter landscape in a sugar "glass" bowl with xmas tree and snowman...never seen anywhere before! Almost a pity to destroy when eating. Thanks to all for a fantastic...

The moment you arrive you will be warmly greeted and everything will be done to fulfill your expectations. Common rooms are gorgeous and luxuriously appointed, as are the rooms and suites. Location is perfect for walking everywhere in this lovely city. The parliament building is next door and the cabinet often dines here. The views over the river are mesmerizing...

Just a short walk from the train station, centrally located to sightseeing, shopping and two small winter markets. From the moment you step inside the hotel you can feel the luxury and old world charm. The greeting on arrival and escort to our room to show all the features was professional and welcoming. The room was luxurious along with the...

The Bellevue Palace is similar to other old traditional hotels. The furnishings are lavish and overdone. Anyone who prefers a more modern minimal hotel will find this hotel over the top. Also the lobby is often full of businessmen and I didn't feel that comfortable as a woman walking through it. The staff were pleasant but more inclined to help...

We had the great pleasure to host an event at the Bellevue Palace last week and were more than impressed by the staff’s work professionalism and pride in their work. All the planning leading up to the event was done carefully and with a great sense of hospitality. The event itself was perfectly organised, despite the very tight schedule. The...

A grande dame of a hotel should be more than just a hotel. It should be create a social world. But if you are a tourist in this hotel, you might think twice. The main reason is that it is such a business-oriented establishment, located next to the government complex. The public areas were very hard to use, because they...

The location cannot be beat and the service is a notch above the typical high Swiss standards. The bar is a beautifully paneled room with books, but does not have a stuffy "club" atmosphere. Bar staff was very attentive and helpful for wine and the wonderful bar menu of small plates. The chilled gazpacho and the smoked salmon bruschetta were...
