A dreamy weekend

  • June 2014
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

    Very nice room with balcony view of the Eiger. Clean. Comfortable. Wonderful photographs of the 100 year history of the hotel.

  • Location
    6.0

    The views from the hotel are outstanding. You will feel like you are living in a dream. You can walk to the train station in two minutes and be in the village in three minutes. And the village of Grindelwald is charming with just the right combination of local color and touristy shops.

    Indoor pool is heated and spotless. They have an indoor and heated Jacuzzi and an outdoor hot tub. I wanted the hot tubs to be a little hotter, but still you can soak in the outdoor tub and gaze at the Eiger.

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    The chefs are top flight! The food will delight you. If you can, try a bottle of the 100 year anniversary wines, red or white. We tried both and I would buy a case if I could fit it in my suitcase.

Yes, a great experience at two visits to the Belvedere in the Grindelwald in october and december 2013. So could the successful year end. The attentive family, the staff, the me as a guest came, from the front desk to check out. Great. The massage, jacuzzi, outdoor and indoor, pure relaxation. Once had the view of the eiger mountain, in the morning, when the lights still in morgenlicht flickered, i felt like in a spielzeugwelt. Happy. Very recommendable. When the rooms are vacant, the view to the eiger side, an experience. Come back very gladly again. read hotel review

Hotel description

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. At the hotel we offer an indoor-pool, Jacuzzi, outside salt water Jacuzzi, saunas, steam bath, massages. There is also a big playroom for children of all ages.
  • 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
