The service at this hotel is outstanding. I enjoyed every aspect of my stay. It is well-situated in the Altstadt yet on the edge so that one has a feeling of it being an oasis of sorts. I highly recommend this hotel.

lovely red carpet, wanted to take my shoes off. Holes in my socks and the Concierge almost had a heart attack. His mighty hand grabbed his officials keys and squeezed them into a molten mass. I was not the best example of Swiss Culture, but at least i didn`t speak Russian. My wallet had a heart attack and I shook...

Such an awe inspiring place. The lobby is huge and very welcoming. The staff is so well educated and friendly. And the view out of the rooms is the cherry on the top. So squeaky clean, very nice details all around the hotel and wonderful service.

The government-owned Bellevue is a proxy for the nation: neat, efficient, expensive (usually) and surrounded by great views. Situated by the Parliament and just off the market square, it's central location and terrace view of the Alps make its location ideal. It can be pricey when the legislature is in session but on par with lesser properties in the city...

From the moment you enter, you this is an elegant hotel. Great location next to Parliament, fantastic staff. Our room was spacious with a large bathroom. The outside terrace is a perfect spot for a drink or light food. The breakfast buffet was complete like most restaurants in Switzerland everything is expensive. I look forward to our return

The Bellevue Palace provides a very special experience in the heart of the UNESCO protected region of Berne. This is a hotel with a history and is still used by the Swiss government today. So you can meet famous political decision makers on their fabulous balcony whilst having breakfast. The 3rd floor is the most beautiful floor and the suites...
