Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Belvedere
Dorfstr. 53, Grindelwald, Bern, 3818, Switzerland Fodor's Choice
As you wind your way into Grindelwald, you can't help but notice this large pink structure perched precariously above the road; regular guest rooms aren't grand, but there are great views of the Eiger and surrounding peaks from almost everywhere—and every room boasts both a balcony and air conditioning, rare for the region. Suites and common areas are tastefully designed. The staff radiates genuine warmth and absolute professionalism; the owner takes groups of guests curling, sledding, or on visits to organic farms. The bright and glossy restaurant has a fresh and creative menu. For total relaxation, there's an outdoor hot tub, plus an indoor pool, sauna, and steam room. The hotel also caters to kids with a games room and special children's menu in the restaurant.
