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...

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...

Lovely Hotel, with friendly staff, large immaculate rooms, good TV selection, good views, central location. WiFi works very well and is free. If you have car; recommend to park at the Neufeldt P&R as it is much cheaper and has a trolley bus into town every few minutes.

Overall this was a very enjoyable stay as you would expect from a Swiss Palace hotel. Our room was comfortable and quiet, food was good (we did not eat in the main resto), service was very friendly - all the staff wanted to go out of their way to ensure we were happy during the 3 days we were there....

The location is superb. Few minutes walk from main railway station; close to a trams; close to the main square; great views overlooking the river. Excellent service and attention from all staff.

Nice hotel, even better after renovation , modern rooms , perfect attention to the client, kind personal, excellent terrace restaurant with a splendid panoramic view on Arn river and Bern town in summer.

The Bellevue Palace is a charming hotel in the heart of Berne. Apart from the grand feeling and historic features, its main asset is the beautiful view of the old town, the meandering river and the Alps in the distance. But you must be lucky enough to get a room with a view--which I was not. But I could enjoy...
