Historical place in the heart of the city! Very nice and cosy bar even though you're on your own (which is not that commun!). Very large room with a nice view on the river. I like the idea to provide binoculars in the room to enjoy the view! Great staff as well!

It turns out it is a 7 minute or so walk from the train station. However, once we got there, we were extremely happy. The room was comfortable, verty... More

Bellevue Palace is one of the few 5 stars Hotels in Switzerland untouched by the experience of time. The Hotel Lobby is monumental, rooms are large and well equipped (be sure you avoid smoking rooms which are unpleasant). The breakfast is outstanding.

Lovely Hotel, with friendly staff, large immaculate rooms, good TV selection, good views, central location. WiFi works very well and is free. If you have car; recommend to park at the Neufeldt P&R as it is much cheaper and has a trolley bus into town every few minutes.
