We loved the location and the atmosphere! The rooms were nice, but the walls were a bit bare. The bathrooms were very up to date, and the amenities were great! The concierge was very kind, and they gave me and my family a tour of kitchen as they were preparing afternoon tea (another one of my favorite amenities!), and when...

We're repeat customers at the Bellevue, love to spend a romantic weekend in Bern every now and then. The Bellevue is a perfect hotel, at least if you're willing to spend the money required. Service is friendly, rooms are spacious, quiet and comfortable. The food is great, both breakfast and dinner. Writing this makes me want to plan our next...

Due to a business meet in Bern I selected the Bellevue Palace based on its central location. The arrival is very impressive passing in the bridge with the old part of Bern illuminated First minus - no direct underground parking to be found so I selected the public casino parking next to the hotel. Running outside in rain with my...

From the moment you step inside the building until the last step you take to exit the hotel, the service and attention to clients is top of the line. The hotel itself is beautiful, with a classic style. Comfortable in every way, let it be the lobby, restaurant, bar, cigar room, and even the rooms. I had a business lunch...

The modern hotel and even the modern 5 star hotel is happening all around the world... and honestly I love it... BUT before that ever happened it was a hotel like this built in 1860 (or something like that) that set the bar for the classic hotelier. Situated next to the Parliament building and perched above the river Aare is...

Spending Christmas Eve at VUE and enjoying the gala dinner was a great idea. The food was amazing and service extremely professional. Big credits to the Patissier who created the dessert: a winter landscape in a sugar "glass" bowl with xmas tree and snowman...never seen anywhere before! Almost a pity to destroy when eating. Thanks to all for a fantastic...

The moment you arrive you will be warmly greeted and everything will be done to fulfill your expectations. Common rooms are gorgeous and luxuriously appointed, as are the rooms and suites.
