Such an awe inspiring place. The lobby is huge and very welcoming. The staff is so well educated and friendly. And the view out of the rooms is the cherry on the top. So squeaky clean, very nice details all around the hotel and wonderful service.

The government-owned Bellevue is a proxy for the nation: neat, efficient, expensive (usually) and surrounded by great views. Situated by the Parliament and just off the market square, it's central location and terrace view of the Alps make its location ideal. It can be pricey when the legislature is in session but on par with lesser properties in the city...

From the moment you enter, you this is an elegant hotel. Great location next to Parliament, fantastic staff. Our room was spacious with a large bathroom. The outside terrace is a perfect spot for a drink or light food. The breakfast buffet was complete like most restaurants in Switzerland everything is expensive. I look forward to our return

The Bellevue Palace provides a very special experience in the heart of the UNESCO protected region of Berne. This is a hotel with a history and is still used by the Swiss government today. So you can meet famous political decision makers on their fabulous balcony whilst having breakfast. The 3rd floor is the most beautiful floor and the suites...

The Bellevue Palace is a gem in the center of a the capital of Switzerland. Bern has kept the old world architecture in tact, mixing it with modern technology, true hospitality and always a friendly smile. The perfect place to stay and discover other parts of this amazing country.

The Bellevue Palace in Bern was excellent. We had a room looking toward the Alps and the view was fabulous. The staff was very attentive. The room was extremely comfortable. The overall service was great. We highly recommend this hotel.

When arriving at the reception of this beautiful hotel, we instantly felt home, coming back for the second time; we were even personally greeted by the GM upon check-in! Enjoying our two night stay, we took opportunity to have dinner at the hotel's beautiful restaurant; Crêpes Suzette's are especially recommendable! The latter, being prepared directly by the table, were a...

We only had a short visit here but the hotel is very grand. Pricey, but It's like an old elegant hotel from the movies. We worked to get a river view -- but wow, what a view. Huge windows that open -- just like a post card (only room view I will book when I return)! Our room was big,...

Wonderful hotel. The best there is in Berne. The rooms are very nicely decorated. if you stay there treat yourself with a room with a mountain view - it's fantastic!! the lobby is always filled with the most beautiful flowers and it always smells lovely. even though i've been to the Bellevue Palace Hotel so many times I've never eaten...
