Bellevue Palace

The Bellevue Palace Bern is a grand 5-star hotel standing majestically in Bern's medieval heart, Switzerland's capital. This elegant building sits comfortably alongside the beautiful 12th-century architecture of the old city. That is, the Altstadt is now designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Originally built as a hotel 150 years ago, the revamped Bellevue re-opened in 1913. It was and still is an excellent concept that rapidly attracted guests from around the world. In its first heyday in the 1920s, Bellevue hosted royalty and nobility. It also attracted heads of state and diplomats, corporate magnates, and celebrities. Also, it was the summer residence for Prince Augustus Ferdinand of Prussia.

Today, this palatial accommodation has been thoroughly modernized. It restores its grandeur alongside state-of-the-art technology. Besides, it is the official government hotel and official of the capital.


Bellevue Palace Bern sits ideally in Bern's historic heart with, as the name announces, beautiful views of the Bernese Alps and overlooking the River Aare. Moreover, the Federal Parliament building is next door. Also, guests have only a few minutes to walk to some of the city's main sights.

The City of Bern

The charming River Aare runs through Bern for delightful walks. The Martgasse shopping district is also a short walk from the hotel. The nearby Einsteinhaus celebrates physicist Albert Einstein's life in his former home, and the Gothic Bern Cathedral is only another minute from there.

Although Bern is an excellent city for public transport with a coordinated network of buses, trams, and trains, Bellevue Palace has car parking. Free city transport tickets are also a courtesy all guests at the hotel enjoy.

Moreover, the city includes the Bern-Belp Airport, a 20-minute drive. Zurich International Airport is an hour and a half away; however, there are shuttles, train, and transfer facilities to Bern.

Reception and Hospitality

With its exceptional business facilities, Bellevue is a popular place for meetings. However, it remains a state-owned official guesthouse for political/ diplomatic representatives from across the globe. Famous names are also on the guest lists here, and the friendly hospitality of this hotel guarantees a warm welcome for all guests.

Moreover, this is the only grand hotel in the city. Nonetheless, the imposing façade belies the friendly greeting from the helpful and super-efficient staff in reception.

Visitors can rest in an opulent but comfortable lobby of calm colors. Plush seating and bright, fresh flower displays are also under a beautiful glass skylight. The Bellevue Hotel has long been a haunt for politicians, but local Bernese people also visit the hotel and its fine restaurants and bars.


The hotel has 126 rooms and suites in classic luxurious style. Each Standard room has an original design. Besides, there are fine views over the pretty courtyard and historic old city.

Single or Double Deluxe rooms are also charmingly decorated, featuring antique furniture and stucco ceilings. Each also has lovely views of the river and mountains.

Guests can request a balcony room to enjoy the scenic setting. Color schemes are warm romantic mauves and pinks with luxurious fabrics and pristine white bed linen.

Furthermore, opulent bathrooms have tubs, double vanity units, and a selection of Molton Brown toiletries. All modern in-room amenities have been added to the hotel. These include unlimited Wi-Fi and air conditioning units.


Bellevue Palace offers 25 unique, lavish suites that mix classical gilt mirrors, antiques, and chandeliers with modern comforts and hi-tech amenities. Additionally, there are sumptuous fabrics in jewel-rich colors and deeply comfortable beds. You'll also find work desks, elegant lighting, and extra space in all suites. Furthermore, opulent bathrooms are standard in all suites.

Special Suites

The Tower and Presidential suites are exceptionally luxurious and spacious. The high Tower suite has stunning views of the famous peaks of the Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau in a more contemporary style.

A circular lounge, separate bedroom, and private gym facility also add to the fine accommodation of the Tower. The gorgeous Presidential with panoramic views is all gilt and gold furnishings and chandeliers. Besides, they also have books and bookcases with shiny-topped classic furniture and loads of space.

Bellevue Dining - Vue / Noumi

The hotel's culinary offerings stars are the Restaurant Vue Brasserie and Terrace restaurants. The open-plan restaurant drifting into a lovely summer space on the terrace is locally and internationally renowned for Chef Gregor Zimmerman's 'neo-artisanal' cuisine.

Reinventing traditional recipes and reintroducing forgotten foods and flavors, Zimmerman's inspired menus use local and regional produce in keeping with modern food ethics. Locals come for the Angus Burger and Crepes Suzette, and few guests leave without sampling them. This is also one of the best restaurants for fine vegetarian and vegan specialties.

Moreover, you can enjoy an enticing array of breakfast foods here. These include fresh bread and yogurts, muesli, fresh fruits, local cheeses, and cold cuts. Noumi is a more casual, relaxing grill for tasting and sharing menus. You can also enjoy cocktails, music, and signature drinks from the bar.

Bellevue Bars - Le Lobby / Bellevue Bar / Le Fumoir

Le Lobby is an 8-until-late institution at the hotel. Tasty snacks, sushi, and conversation in the beautiful hotel lobby combined with a drinks menu, including many gins available at the bar. The Bellevue Bar is another much-loved venue. It is particularly favored by politicians dropping in from the neighboring government building.

Tasty treats and drinks are available in this long golden-brown sophisticated bar. Le Fumoir is the place to go for a quiet smoker's paradise. It has specialist Cuban and South American cigars available from 10.00 am to midnight.

Bellevue Gym

This is an exceptionally well-equipped fitness facility. It also has lovely Bernese views while exercising or resting in the lounge and drinks area. Alternatively, guests can unwind in the Finnish sauna, which has separate male-female areas. It is open for extended hours every day.

Business, Conference, and Events Center

The hotel offers first-class function rooms, banqueting facilities, private dining, and celebrations. Moreover, the state-of-the-art technologies, superb staff, and sublime scenic surroundings make this a beautiful venue for meetings and events of all kinds.


Bern is a beautiful city with picturesque scenery. Hotel Bellevue Palace is the ideal starting point from the famous 16th-century ornate clock that chimes guests into viewing the Altstadt or the Alps.
