A favourite hotel with a welcoming staff

This was our fourth visit to the hotel, but the first in winter. So you can see that this is a favourite hotel and we think very highly its management and staff. They are warm, welcoming and you could not choose a better place to stay in summer, or in winter. Of course, being Switzerland, it is expensive, but this is a matter of exchange rates and is beyond the control of the Hauser family. We think a visit to the Belvedere Hotel is worth every penny and are looking forward to going again, before too long. read hotel review

    The hotel faces the Eiger and the rooms are spacious and very comfortable, with a high standard of furniture. The best rooms are those facing the Eiger. In winter, the heating can be easily adjusted for comfort. We were also able to choose from a wide variety of bedding to suit our needs; this was done on-line before we travelled. In the bathroom there are dispensers for toiletries, which reduces the waste from partly used toiletries.

  • Location
    6.0

    This is an excellent hotel in Grindelwald, in the Jungfrau Region, where there are plenty of things to do, both in summer and in winter, even if you do not ski. A regional pass gave us access to buses, railways and cable cars, so we were are able to explore this attractive area very easily. The hotel is ideally placed because it is close to the railway and bus stations, and the centre of Grindelwald.

  • Service

    It is a family-run hotel and the standards of service are excellent. Sylvia and Urs-B Hauser and their family set these standards. They are warm and welcoming, and work very hard to ensure that the guests get the very best service. They are supported by a friendly and helpful staff for whom no query, however small, is too much trouble. The staff respond cheerfully and efficiently to all enquiries.

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    The standard of food is always excellent, with good range of beautifully cooked choices on the dinner menu. For special occasions, such as Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, the food is exceptional, with special menus and lovely table decorations. The catering and dinning room staff are also deal with any dietary needs. For example, I am allergic to tomato. Once this had been mentioned, I was able to eat any of the choices on the menu because the chef would make me a special sauce, even though the usual sauce for the dish contained tomatoes. This attention to detail is very reassuring. The Restaurant Manager, Sonya, has been mentioned in several reviews. We also think that she is such a lovely person: talking to her is like talking to a friend.

  • Sport & Leisure

    The hotel also arranges special events. The Alpine Blues Night with Larry’s Blues Band was great fun and we were sorry to miss the New Year’s Eve Tango party. The visit of Father Christmas, with his donkeys, was accompanied by mulled wine and pastries. He had named presents for all the children staying in the hotel.

We recently visited Grindelwald and Hotel Belvedere for our anniversary and were lucky enough to catch the first snow of the season! The hotel is a beautiful, family run hotel where you are treated like family by the staff. Every window of the hotel offers the most breathtaking views over the Alps and we fell in love immediately from the moment we arrived. We loved relaxing with a welcome drink in lounge that looks out over a truly magnificent view. Our Executive Room was incredibly spacious, beautifully furnished and offered the most breathtaking panoramic views over the Eiger and Alps. ... Our bathroom was enormous and spotlessly clean, and we really loved our spa bath! The pillow menu is one of the most unique we have ever seen and we loved our spelt and wood pillows! The hotel has excellent environmental standards and policies and I think a lot of hotels could learn a lot from them. The Wi-Fi was free and worked really fast and reliably through our stay and we also appreciated the free parking. A kind member of staff even came out to assist us on our last day when he saw we were struggling to de-ice our car! Every single staff member went out of their way to make guests feel welcome and assist wherever they could! One of our absolute favourite parts about the hotel (in addition to the incredible views) is their wellness area. With a sauna, steam room, enormous indoor pool and an outdoor Jacuzzi which we spent a lot of hours in! It was such a wonderful experience to sit in the Jacuzzi whilst being snowed on, and an experience I will never forget! We visited in off season and so the restaurant was closed but the staff recommended a restaurant at their sister hotel which we took them up on and really enjoyed! So thank you for the recommendation) Breakfast was absolutely delicious, plentiful and had a very wide range of options available! We truly received 5 Star treatment throughout our stay and cannot wait to come back to visit both Hotel Belvedere and Grindelwald, and are planning to do exactly that in April next year to visit during early Spring! read hotel review

Best place I've ever stayed at. Amazing!
  • Recommended hotel

I loved staying in this hotel and can't wait to go back. Have never been made to feel so welcome by the friendly staff and the family that runs the hotel. Delicious food, amazing pool facilities (including an incredible jacuzzi outside in which we sat often whilst in snowed.!) and great rooms overlooking the Eiger. In short, we had nothing else to wish for. It has a lovely bar, with great imaginery cocktails (ask for the 'Pink Floyd') and a breakfast to die for. On top of all else, Urs, the hotel manager, knows his languages - I think ... he is about to learn Dutch and he speaks about 9 others. Overall, top points, and I can unreservedly advice anyone to stay at this hotel to have the best time possible! read hotel review

A dreamy weekend

When we arrived at Hotel Belvedere we were invited to the wide open Terrace for a welcome drink. As we were sipping our drinks we could watch the massive Eiger, which loomed right in front of the balcony. It was just breathtaking! The room was clean, bright and comfortable. After a hike we could relax in the jacuzzi and swim lazily in the heated pool. Deck-chairs with soft mattresses gave us a dreamy wellness, which was very relaxing. Dinner was served with the option of a speciality from the chef himself and the food was excellent. The following morning breakfast ... buffet was overwhelming with fruit, bread, eggs, bacon, varieties of cheese, cold meat and also Asian foods. The service was friendly and helpful. It was a lovely and enjoyable stay! read hotel review

Hotel description

  • What the hotel offers
    The Boutique Hotel Belvedere, No 1 on Tripadvisor (July 2009) and recommended by many famous travel guides, has been run by its owner family every since 1907, when it was built by grandfather Hauser. And here is already one important difference. The personal touch!! Read on our webpage, www.belvedere-grindelwald.ch about the family history "your hosts" and "philosophy".
  • Location
    Belvedere means "beautiful view". And that's exactly what our hotel is offering. Take a look at our webpage, www.belvedere-grindelwald.ch also under "Impressions" where you are also shown the incredible beauty of our valley. Only 5 min. walk from the bustling centre, the hotel is like sitting on its own sun terrace, offering from all sides a wonderful mountain view.
  • Accommodation
    Choose from a wide selection of different rooms and family suites. We also offer "snooring rooms", means junior-suites with a small extra bedroom. Family suites for up to 9 persons are available. All rooms are non-smoking. The ones on the north side offer a great view to the Wetterhorn Mountain and the Prealps, those to the south a sensational view to the famous Eiger (remember movies like Eiger sanction with Clint Eastwood, James Bond, The Alps, The Northface). Our rooms have different decors and colors; take a good look on our website.
  • Food and Drink
    Our chefs are preparing everything fresh and we try to buy as much as possible locally or from the near by area. 6 course gourmet dinners, with choice of dishes, that's what we are offering daily. Our daily wonderful cheese buffet and the big salad bar are just as popular as the weekly dessert buffets and local Fare buffets.
  • Leisure
    We are in the middle of a wonderful mountain area. Sports are done outside, in fresh air. Skiing, tobogganing, winter hiking, snow show hiking in the winter, hiking, tennis, golf, biking, mountaineering, nordic walking in the summer. Adventures sports like tandem paragliding (with pilot), canyoning, river rafting, sky diving... and much more are very popular in our area.

  • Other facilities and services
    We hope that also you will consider our service "excellent". However we do not want to praise ourselves, you better read the reports at Tripadvisor or at MySwitzerland.com. The only thing we can promise. All our members of staff will do their utmost, to make you happy and they are all trying to exceed your expectations
