Everything is simply right in this hotel, it is so incredibly well run, old style service with modernity to accompany the whole experience. What I love is the extreme elegance without any of the flashiness which accompanies other establishments. The staff is welcoming, courteous, with discretion, as the Swiss people tend to be. The food is superb, the breakfast buffet...

Although touted as a 4 or 5 star hotel, the service and customer care is average. The air conditioning never seemed to control the room temperature and we resorted to opening our windows just to help lower the room temperature. The hotel has a promotion where if you join a "paid loyalty program" you receive a room upgrade and other...

The rooms are decent but the views are magnificent. The staff is incredibly nice and the service is just phenomenal. The restaurants are nice and the shopping area is just down the street. The gym was ok but the neighborhood is not bad at all for a run to stretch your legs.

From the moment we checked in at the Bellevue Palace Bern, we felt like we were in a dream. The staff was pleasant and courteous, and offered us refreshments. Then one of the front desk clerks took us to our room. The room was beautiful, stately, and impeccable. Make sure to secure a room with a view. Ours was spectacular....

We loved the Bellevue. It was immaculate and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Bern had much to do, but it was not the exciting city we thought it would be. But nonetheless we enjoyed our stay and the Bellevue was a highlight. It was classy

Great stay! friendly staff, perfect view to the Aare and Alps, very nice and clean room (Deluxe room), comfortable large bed, small balcony with table and 2 chairs, great location next to the Swiss parliament building in the old town of Berne. sunday brunch was good, also the "normal" breakfast.

I've stayed at this place many time and never been disappointed. Large and beautiful lobby/atrium. The terrace overlooking the river is breath taking for those morning breakfast or afternoon drinks. The service throughout the hotel is Swiss at its finest. A classical European hotel that is very rare in the abstract world we live in.

Stayed at Bellevue Palace Bern for one night, it was absolutely wonderful! The suite was massive and the view from there was breath-taking. Beautiful building with lots of history and architectural details, conveniently located, the hotel is definitely one of the best I've stayed. Don't miss the breakfast in the grand room with great view.

The hotel is unique. It offers the discretion and elegance of a class hotel, while you feel welcome like at home. For my stay, the infrastructure was perfect. The staff met all my needs. I was perfectly able to recover from the day. The food was sensational and the extra calorie you can get rid of at the Sana. Everything...

This is a true 5 Star property. From the beautiful lobby to the excellent concierge service. We have stayed at a number top 50 Hotels and this fits comfortably in that group. The check in was flawless and the person that checked us in personally escorted us to our rooms to make sure they were acceptable. But the star of...
