High above the city of Luzern I enjoyed swiss hospitality at its best: 1) cable car included in the stay, 2) welcome drink (tasty swiss white wine + fantastic local alpine cheese) included, 3) great dinner + breakfast included, 4) great view (I was really lucky with the weather having clear skies) included, 5) very simple yet very comfortable room...

The Hotel Bellevue offers you one of those 'lifetime' moment - as it's not often you wake up with your head above the clouds without the need for an aeroplane! The hotel is one of two at the top of Mount Pilatus (it's sister hotel is the Pilatus-Kulm) that offers you the chance to enjoy the mountain top when the...

We stayed at the Bellevue on Pilatus for one night. The views from our hotel room were magnificent. The rooms are on the small side but tastefully furnished. It's when you open the window from the bedroom and look out over the Swiss and French Alps that you know why you came here. The price includes breakfast and a four...

Enjoyed lunch here when in the top of Mount Pilatus. Food is served cafeteria style. Prices are high. For a simple lunch of a bratwurst and fries I paid €18 + €4.70 for a small cup of coffee. The view are spectacular. We dined overlooking the beautiful Alps and lake Lucerne it is immaculately clean and staff spoke good English.

If you are looking for an amazing hotel on top of a mountain, incredible views, a sky full of stars at night and be the only ones there with overnight staff, then book a night or better two at the Hotel Bellevue. At the end of the day, the cog rail and tram stop running, leaving you alone with other...

The mountain and the walks around are incredable . I have been to many mountaneous areas in France, UK, Italy and Colorado but this s different. The walks are safe , you see elderly people doing them. Views are stunning with the lake down . The hotel rooms are clean, have beautiful views and service is superb. The manager is...

We stayed one night at The Bellevue on top of Mt. Pilatus, not to be confused with the one at the foot of Mt. Pilatus, called Bellevue Kriens. That night, we were invited, along with other guests, to welcome cocktails at the lobby. And we were happily surprised that our room included dinner as well as breakfast the next day...

Mount Pilatus was our big splurge for our 12 week holiday. Getting there from Alpnastaad involved the worlds steepest cable car for 4.6km with a max gradient of 48 degrees, which began operating in 1889. Lots of people visit here, but not many stay over night. There's only two small hotels and all the day visitors must leave the mountain...

Visited this hotel in 1984 and again in 2015 and both times extremely happy with the stay for the amazing views. It takes your breath away being able to stay on the top of Mt Pilatus in a hotel and to wake up and see the sunrise from the top of the walk paths. Hotel accommodation was comfy clean and...

Right, firstly you need to access the hotel by cable car or cog wheel train,which when we booked through Booking.com didn't inform you of this. The cable car & trains stop running before 5pm which we found out because we arrived after this,but thanks to a very helpful Swiss ticket office lady & Cog train driver we managed to jump...
