    Historical Traveler Reviews Bellevue Palace Bern

    This is my favorite hotel


    This is my favorite hotel of all time. I loved this hotel!! The service was very friendly, accommodating, and responsive...treated us like we were VIPs (I wish all hotels did the same). And the hotel about extravagance!! We walked into our room and our jaws just dropped...WOW!! Our room even had a gorgeous view that overlooked the river. My only negative...the breakfast buffet was good, but not 5-star great. But, we will definitely come back!

    Tophotel - stilvoll, 5 Sterne!


    Ein großartiges Hotel in einem wunderschönen Gebäude (Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts gebaut). Das Bellevue hat eine zentrale Lage mit großen Zimmern, komfortablen Betten und einem modernen Badezimmer, mit allen Annehmlichkeiten, die man in einem 5-Sterne-Hotel erwartet. Der Service war effizient und freundlich, das Frühstück gut und das Esszimmer einfach herrlich. Auch gut war, dass man spät auschecken konnte. Der Parkplatz war auch nicht teuer. Sehr zu empfehlen.

    Guter Service


    Das Bellevue ist ein wunderschönes altes Hotel mit atemberaubender Aussicht und vielen schönen Gemeinschaftsräumen. Ich wenig enttäuscht war ich von Bern selbst, das ich ein wenig langweilig und trist fand. Ich war froh, mit dem Zug ins Oberland fahren zu können, denn dort war es spektakulär. Das andere, was mir nicht so gefallen hat, war das Frühstück, was für ein 5-Sterne-Hotel eher mittelmäßig war. Gefallen aber hat mir der Service an der Rezeption, der charmant und freundlich war. Ein paar Stunden nach unserer Ankunft und der ersten Enttäuschung, dem seelenlosen Weihnachtsmarkt, stellten wir zu unserer Verärgerung fest, dass wir unseren IPod im Flugzeug aus München gelassen hatten. Ein Anruf an der Rezeption und innerhalb einer halben Stunde war der IPod in einem bezahlten Taxi auf dem Weg ins Hotel, wo wir es nach dem Abendessen wieder in Empfang nahmen.

    Top class all the way in Bern


    Spent two nights at the Bellevue and found the standards of service and accomodations to be absolutely first class. The Junior Suite was spacious, with a very nice bathroom with excellent shower. Watching the sun set from the balcony overlooking the river is a sight not to be missed. The service from the hotel staff was as you'd expect for a hotel of this class -- efficient, professional, and I'd say even a bit more friendly than you normally find in Swiss hotels.

    Do not miss reserving a table for dinner on their Terrace Resturant. They have a broad selection of Swiss wines by the glass. We took a fixed menu and asked the waitress pair up a different Swiss wine with each course -- each wine she choose was exactly the right choice to bring out the flavors of the food and the wine. I'd highly recommend going this route if you dine there.

    Overall, a top recommendation for when you're in Bern.

    Top Hotel - Stylish, 5star!


    A great hotel in a beautiful early 20th century building, the Bellevue is centrally located, with large rooms, confy bed and modern bathroom, all amenities expected from a 5star hotel. Service was efficient and friendly, breakfast was good and dining room was just splendid. Late checkout was also much appreciated, and the car parking was not expensive.

    Thoroughly recommended

    Good service


    The Bellevue is a beautiful old hotel with stunning views and stately public rooms. Sadly was very disappointed by Bern itself which I found dull and a bit miserable. I was glad to get the train out to the Oberland which was spectacular.

    The other negative issue was breakfast which was mediocre for a 5*.

    However I was really impressed by service on reception who were charming and helpful. A few hours after arriving and being very let down by Bern's souless Christmas market (honestly Manchester's is better by far) we were even more upset to discover our Ipod was missing presumably left on the plane from Munich.One call to reception and in within half an hour the IPod was coming back in a prepaid taxi from the airport where we picked it up after dinner.

    A great hotel


    The Bellevue Palace mkaes it much easier for me to do my job when I am in Berne. The staff is helpful and friendly, and the facilities are first rate. It is good value for money, even tho expensive.

    Êxellent Service, great infrastructure, breathtaking view


    The Bellevue Palace is a benchmark for what a luxury Hotel should stand for. Exellent Service, a completely renovated Grand Hotel and breathtaking view of the alps. Overall a experience that should not be missed.

    Unplanned cuteness in Bern

    ... town with the river. We attempted to catch up on some writing from our hostel as the rain finally started. Sweet relief after all the heat. We could hear people cheering in the streets as the rain came down. While lying in my bed I watched the lightening light up the sky and breathed in the freshness the rain brought, thinking of home and hoping that there is lots of rain to help with all the fires. The next day we rented bikes. It was ...

    ... 8217;t want bigger this, more of that. It’s just a really cute place.

    I decided it would be a good idea to cross the river and climb up to the botanical gardens. Again, one of those that in theory sounds wonderful.

    I was a sweaty mess by the time I got up there.

    I decided it was time to eat my bread roll, so I crossed back across the river to sit in the only shady place in the whole city. Although it was early, I decided it was time to ...

    ... looked very cool. We had time for a bit of a look around in Interlaken and quite enjoyed it. The houses/buildings are very pretty to look at and there were some lovely gardens and a nice view over the river between the two lakes. There were quite a few tourists in Interlaken though, so it was a lot busier than we were used to from little Murten. We even had time to go to yummy cafe in Interlaken, and got a chocolate cake and some raspberry cheesecake/sponge. They were ...

    ... have made! I joined up with 2 Cali girls and our guide and we got suited up in our wetsuits, life jackets, helmets and harnesses and trekked our way up to the top of a mountain. There were some parts that we couldn't walk up, so we had to rock climb up! We made our way down the canyon by cliff diving, belaying down, swimming down waterfalls (no barrels) and using the rocks as natural water slides. It was the most ...

    ... a pretty good sweet potato soup and a seriously addictive brownie. We loved it! We then left and got our bags back in Wilderswil, and then we went to Interlaken and got an awesome Swiss mini knife that even has a light! Next, we had a lovely train ride to Zurich where we stayed in a very nice hotel. It was great! We didn't do much except we walked around and had dinner. We had a great night's sleep. We woke up at 4:15 in the morning and got on a bus that took us ...
