Hotel Bellevue
Ranked #12 of 40 Hotels in Interlaken
Reviewed October 3, 2012

We stayed in Interlaken for 3 nights at Hotel Bellevue. The location was nice because it was definitely very close to the center of the town, however it was far enough away that you could keep your window open at night to get the breezes and not the noises from the main street in the town. Switzerland, in general, is pretty expensive so you get a little less here than in other European countries. The rooms were simple but the beds & sheets were comfortable. The bathroom was fine, but the tub w/ shower curtain was a little spacially awkward. The service was fine. Overall, the location was great (super close to Interlaken West train station, like a 4 minute walk) and for Switzerland it's a good value in a good location, which is often very tough to find.

The Hotel Bellevue is a well situated, family owned hotel in Interlaken. I stayed here with my Dad, my wife and my daughter, and we were all very pleased with the experience. The staff was friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English. There is a little bar in the hotel, and a restaurant (the Anker) next door, which is quite good. The guest rooms were relatively spacious, clean and well appointed (not cluttered with a lot of stuff, which is the Swiss way). All of the rooms in the place overlook the River Aare, and the balconies off of the rooms provide a pleasant place to relax in the summer. Interlaken is well located for tours of the Alps, and the staff can assist with obtaining tickets to the Jungfrau and other mountain sites. The breakfast is excellent in the way of German/ Swiss breakfasts, with multitudes of fresh breads, meats and cheeses, and baked goods. As with other independent European hotels, Americans may find the furnishings/ amenities a little sparse, but with these properties the emphasis is on cleanliness and comfort, and this property scores well in that regard.

Good location & you can see it from the end of the Interlaken west station platform, stay on the same side of the railway line as you walk towards it, not like us? Beautiful setting, lots of character including quirky art deco features that had been preserved and added interest. We had read in other reviews about the creaking floors and when the cleaner started upstairs we didn't think we were going to sleep for the next 4 nights? Turned out to be not a problem. Fair sized bedroom for Europe, bathroom was small, but then we didn't stay there to spend our days in the room. Also right on the railway but again no problem. Sensational view of Jungfrau and the paragliders? and a view back to the canal/river from our room Set in a very picturesque classical swiss style neighbourhood with restaurants around within easy walking distance. Breakfast was good, breakfast room was a bit of a barn that lacked soul and had probably been a ball room or something like that in earlier times. Wifi was patchy for service

Room Tip: Mountain views if you ask for them, probably river/canal views on the other side which is also away...

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 !
