We picked the Swiss capital of Bern to spend our fourth anniversary. We splurged and stayed at the five star Bellevue Palace, the best hotel in Bern and the official residence of visiting dignitaries. We arrived from Interlaken, exhausted from all the waiting, and strolled into the Bellevue Palace with our backpacks and sneakers. We got some …
... this week for two days a week - on a Monday Tim looks after Anya, and on Friday, Annik's mother comes and looks after her. The baby is only 4 months old and doesn't want to take a bottle, but it's ok as people have long lunches (2 hours) in Switzerland and Annik comes home to feed. Tim and I joined Annik and her mum at home for lunch, and then Tim and I headed out again to see more of Bern. He ...
... within Switzerland and Europe, and we would have to agree with her having used the train system throughout! We definitely want to come back here and stay for a couple of weeks or so... It was so quiet all you could hear was the bells of the dairy cows on the hills and to gush of the river and the streams flowing from the mountains around. Many families were hiking by the river and up the walking paths surrounding the town. Interesting to note the warning by the river ...

Then we walked to Bear park, saw the bears in the water playing and sat down by the shore, as many of ...

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 room...talk 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
