The hotel

The BELLEVUE PALACE has 128 rooms, 24 of which are suites. These hideaways for individuals are classically elegant yet fitted with every modern amenity. At this luxury five-star hotel, the stage is set for a grand appearance. The restaurant «VUE» is the number one destination for gourmets in Bern, while journalists, politicians, guests of the state and couples too can enjoy cocktails and culinary delights at the «BELLEVUE Bar» and «Le LOBBY».

For those who appreciate the more discreet approach, the BELLEVUE PALACE also has 12 function rooms for special events and banquets. Meanwhile the exclusive BELLEViE GYM and Spa on the 5th floor enables guests to top up their fitness levels or relax in a Finnish sauna.

The history

The BELLEVUE PALACE opened as the Hotel Bellevue in 1865. After a full conversion, it reopened in 1913 before experiencing its first heyday during the 1920s. The Swiss National Bank acquired the BELLEVUE PALACE in 1976, handing over the property to the Swiss Confederation in 1994.

The only Grand Hotel in Bern with a long-standing tradition is therefore owned by the state; as the official hotel for guests of the state, and the hotel of choice for numerous celebrities, politicians and diplomats, it possesses a unique flair.
