“Wonderfull hotel adjacent to River”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

Good value for money compared to other same star and price hotels, very near to Interlaken west train station (walking distance along with rail line) but very far from Interlaken OST, you have to take bus to reach there , hotel has offered the free passes to use buses in interlaken, but instead of waiting for bus we have prefered to visit by walk.
Wifi network was available, but not working in rooms, only good worked in lobby.
I have stayed three nights with my wife and we found good to stay.
The hotel staff is not much as friendly as we have expected.

Room Tip: choose the room with river view.

This charming hotel is situated right on river bright blue Aare. We asked for room with balcony on the upper floor and got a spacious and clean room with magnificent view of the river and surrounding mountains. The hotel is quite close to the station and though we had a lot of luggage, we could easily walk there. The main shopping and tourist areas as well as a variety of restaurants are just down the road yet the hotel’s situation is tranquil.

Belle Vue has a small garden with an inviting cottage is right on the river which they rent out for a max of 6 guests on per day basis. The cottage has 2 rooms and a living room and we are thinking of renting it next time we visit Interlaken.

With wooden flooring and basic furniture, the rooms are functional and clean. Bathrooms are comparatively small but toileteries supplied are of good quality. Lift is available but only goes till the 3rd floor. The 4th (top floor) can only be reached by staircase from the 3rd though help is given for the luggage so this is not a problem.

There is no air conditioning or room service, WiFi is free and the hotel is right next to a grocery store.

We had a breakfast inclusive rate and the breakfast was sumptuous with fresh fruits, yogurt, eggs, cereal, croissant, bread, selection of cheeses – fabulous.

The staff was friendly, courteous and accommodating, answering all our questions on Jungfrau and the surrounding regions patiently. We also bought our tickets for the Jungfrau train from the hotel itself which was really convenient.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors are quieter and have better view

This hotel located just 5 minutes walk from the Interlaken West railway station. It is really close to the city center of Interlaken, but also close to the main square of the charming and more relaxed Unterseen. We got a nice, well lit room on the first floor, with a balcony looking over the Aare river. The room was nicely decorated, with a bit oldish furniture and had kind of a weird angled shape (there was merely 50 cm between the corner of the bed and the desk). The bathroom was large and clean, with a large window. The narrow river lets through quite a lot of water, so the background noise was pretty high with the windows opened. Fortunately the insulation was really good on the windows. The bed was kind of old, and the springs squeaked with the smallest movement. Though we could get good sleeps after the long hikings during the day. Breakfast was included in the price and was nicely adjusted and tasted good. The receptionists were helpful and kind.

We stayed here for 4 nights for our honeymoon and couldnt have asked for more !! After informing the staff that we were on our honeymoon they gave us a riverview room with some romantic lights in the room ! :) The view every morning was heavenly !!
the hotel is a perfect walking distance from Interlaken (west) train station and bus station which give you acess to 'literally' whole of Switzerland. The room tariff was inclusive of breakfast and the spread was brilliant ! the room was most comfortable - a good blend of old school room decor and modern amenities.
the reception staff was very helpful - in guiding us and helping us plan our day trips. All in all a brilliant experience and room.

Room Tip: ask for a river view room ! the view is heavenly !

Great location on the river Arre, close proximity to town center, railway station, shopping areas, excursions. Friendly and experienced staff at the reception with good knowledge of the restaurants and tourism in the region.

Excellent breakfast, good rooms with a view of the river and good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a river facing room.

We recently stayed in the River House at Hotel Bellevue and it was wonderful! We had our own 2 bedroom/ 2 bathroom house with a fully equipped kitchen, living area, grill, etc. We also had a private garden by the river and beautiful views. The staff was always impeccably professional, courteous and attentive to our needs. The breakfast in the morning was extensive and the kids looked forward to trying a new variety of things everyday. There is even a washer/dryer in the basement, although we didn't use them. Its true that the hotel is next to the train, but I don't remember ever feeling annoyed by it. I like that this hotel is away from some of the touristy sections of Interlaken but is less than 5 minutes to Interlaken West, so you can reach most destinations easily. There are also a number of good restaurants near by that we enjoyed. I loved, loved, loved this experience and I'm not sure when I'll get back, but I'll be looking forward to it!

we stayed in July for 4 nights . My husband and I were travelling with another couple. We were shown to our room which was in an attic which you had to climb 4 steps to go out to balcony. It was a very old and ordinary room.We were expecting a balcony with river and mountain views but you had to climb out to see the views! we complained and got moved after I explained I had a bad knee. Our friends had the room we were expecting. Eventually we were given the room next to them which was much smaller but clean with a nice balcony and view. The hotel staff were good. the breakfast was okay. It is not in the heart of town but not far from the Interlaken west train station. I have never stayed in a hotel that gives you earplugs to sleep! The floors creak and the train is right next door.
