The History - TheBellevue Palace was opened in 1865 as the Hotel Bellevue. It was reopened in 1913 after a total renovation and experienced its first heyday in the 1920s. In 1976, the Swiss National Bank acquired the Bellevue Palace and donated it in 1994 to the Swiss Confederation. The only grand hotel in Bern with a long tradition is thus owned by the federal government and the official guesthouse of the state for state guests and the hotel of choice for many celebrities, politicians, and diplomats, which gives it a unique flair.
All 128 rooms, including 24 suites, are equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Whether guests arrive for a romantic weekend, an eventful holiday, or an official visit, the stylish and discreetly luxurious rooms and suites leave nothing to be desired - all offer classically elegant furnishings combined with modern-day comforts, harmonious colors, and stunning views.
