With its impeccable pedigree, sweeping views and five-star dining, the Bellevue Palace is a must stay.
In its nearly 100 years of operation, the Bellevue Palace has played host to everyone from Winston Churchill and Mikhail Gorbatschow to Sophia Loren and Rainer Maria Rilke. Its stunning Art Nouveau architecture and panoramic view of the Bernese Alps and the Aare River made it the ideal setting for the TV-serial adaptation of John le Carré’s spy novel Smiley’s People, starring Alec Guinness. With that flawless pedigree, it would be hard to fault the Bellevue for resting on its laurels; fortunately, it’s also unnecessary. The only five-star hotel in Bern, the palace offers fine dining in an elegant setting; 126 chicly renovated, quiet rooms; and easy access to city activities and sightseeingits central location, in the heart of Bern next to the Swiss Houses of Parliament, make it a great base."
