Fantastic property, with great central location. The two rooms the family had enjoy some of the best views over water and mountains I have ever seen. The service is efficient and front desk helpful. I suppose the only drawdown to our stay was the construction works taking place next to the hotel, noisy enough to wake you up in the... More

Stayed at the hotel for a conference and from the moment I arrived I was treated by the staff in an incredibly friendly manner. The room was well appointed, equipped and spacious and had wonderful views over the square and river. The rest terrace and the 99 gins selection was pleasant, bustling and a perfect way to unwind having driven... More

We spent 2 nights here while in Bern- what a lovely hotel! The building itself is quite impressive and the staff was very pleasant, helpful and courteous! The lobby was ornate and stately and the room was comfortable and had a lovely view of the river! The location was great and we walked all over - they also give you... More

Excellent luxury hotel centrally located an easy stroll away from all the sights. We were fortunate enough to be upgraded to a beautiful suite with a stunning view over the city, river Aare and to the mountains. Very comfortable bed, Nespresso machine and Moultin Brown toiletries - what more could you want? The staff were all very friendly and attentive,... More

I always love to come to Bern and the Bellevue Palace. The city is just a gem, offering all a big city has to offer but having the medieval look and feeling. Most of all, you can walk everywhere from the Bellevue Palace. Beautiful and centrally located historic hotel with spacious rooms and the best terrace in town. I always... More

How long has it been that the parking valet has been called "voiturier"? Here, at Berne's grand old lady everything is classy: The service at reception, the rooms, the lot. Service at breakfast might be a bit erratic - but at least you get decent coffee when you finally get it. And, coming back to the "voiturier": On departure there... More

This is the best hotel we've ever stayed in Europe. The room was spacious and very comfortable for our family of 4. The view from the terrace at breakfast is breathtaking as you can see jungfraujoch from a distance. The staff was very friendly and resourceful in helping us out with whatever needed.

Very nice hotel and certainly five star luxcry quality but to my mind not one the Leading Hotels of the World. This is because of small things, like a coffee machine in the room and the service at breakfast. I waited 20 minutes for a cup of coffee to be served in an almost empty breakfast room. Simply not good... More
