    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.

    ... we could find. Not a lot really, so we headed to the supermarket to buy dinner. We walked around and found steak and a salad. The hostel has a great common area and kitchen so at 6pm we went down and cooked the steak and had a nice meal. We wandered around town a bit more beore going back and having showers, we packed our bags and called it a night.

    Fabian - Bradley's workmate who had spent 7 months in New Zealand back over our summer, was nice enough to pick us up from the train station and drive us the 2mins back to his and his girlfriend Jane's apartment. He gave us a little tour of their lovely place, which has two balconies and it's own little outdoor area overlooking a field, and we caught up and had a Swiss soft drink - Rivella, which has a similar sort of taste to L&P back home. Bradley and I had showers, seen as ...

The next day we spent the day with the Robin family as they had decided to hang around for an extra day too before they headed off to San Remo where they were holding a small outreach the following weekend. We had Kerstin with us as our tour guide, so we went for a drive down to the town of Interlaken. On the way we drove through some more breathtaking Swiss ...

    ... at a sketchy hostel and left the next morning for the mountains after doing a quick visit of the old city in the morning. But it is here, in Interlaken that I have become overwhelmed by my joy. I got to my bed and breakfast, which was my treat to myself after my previous nights stay, and was greeted by the most wonderful young couple. Shortly after I arrived I was picked up on the back of the motorcycle, where I was taken to the top of one of the mountains to ...

    ... re looking for a watch this is the best place in the world as it seemed as if every second shop sold Swiss watches.

    The city itself is at the base of the famous Eiger Mountain which sits alongside the Monch and the massive Jungfrau. To say the views from our Best Western hotel were stunning would be an understatement.

    One thing though, Switzerland was easily the most expensive place we have been to. Food and drinks were right up there with Australian prices with ...
