Simplicity is Key at the Hotel Bellevue Paris
Many veteran tourists and travelers say that all one would need is simple and basic accommodations to cover one’s trip. This may not always apply—especially to travelers who prefer their accommodations on the luxurious side—but serious tourists believe that the highlight of one’s stay at any place should be the place itself, and not the hotel. Looking at the popular hotels today, this isn’t applied anymore. Nonetheless, a good hotel—no matter how big or small—is a good hotel. Regardless of the size, a hotel should have excellent service, adequate accommodations, and top of the line amenities and features. What this means is that a simple hotel can also be as charming and as efficient as the big, swanky hotels in the major tourists spots. A small, simple, and basic hotel can still be seductive, offering the best value for one’s money while making sure that the guests get what they came for.
In a way, this how the Hotel Bellevue in Montmatre, Paris works. The Hotel Bellevue is quaint, 38-room affair, located at Rue Philippe de Girard, a quiet little street near a number of public transportation in the city. In particular, it is near the La Chapelle (line 2) and the Marx Dormoy (line 12) metro stations. Within the area are a number of establishments, such as prominent stores and restaurants—for those who are looking for something familiar in this foreign city. Of course, since in Paris, the local flavor is not lost, especially since the hotel is not located along a street where big hotels are also situated (meaning, it is not like a tourist center where Paris is presented at its best light). Instead, the guests of Hotel Bellevue Paris will see the city’s real face, its character to the eyes of the locals.
But of course, the tourists came to Paris to see noteworthy Parisian sites, and staying at the Hotel Bellevue will make this extremely easier and convenient. The area is close to a number of worthwhile sites, including the Sacred Heart Basilica, the Parc de la Vilette, the Moulin, Rouge, and other popular locations. Because it is near the metro train stations (a five minute-walk, 10 minutes at most), guests also have quick access to popular landmarks such as the Grand Boulevard, the Georges Pompidou, the Chatelet, and other locations.
As the number of the room suggests, Hotel Bellevue is not big at all. The rooms have the usual hotel amenities (telephone, satellite television, wireless Internet access). However, what makes these services and the hotel itself a noteworthy accommodation is the attention given to the location and the service given to the guests. Those who are in Paris will enjoy how the hotel’s simple yet inviting atmosphere will provide them the necessary comfort, and at the same time highlighting Parisian life. In Hotel Bellevue, there is padding of the sites or exaggeration of the city—the guests will see what Paris truly is, and what an experience it will be. Of course, locals or foreigners who are looking for a business or professional base in Paris would also be satisfied with Hotel Bellevue.
Among the best features of Hotel Bellevue Paris is the price. Its prices are reasonable, and service and facilities at the guests’ disposal are beyond its price range. This is perfect for budget travelers, although even those who are picky with their hotels wouldn’t be disappointed.
Hotel Bellevue is admittedly simple or basic, but it does not disappointment. Guests will get what they paid for and more. But most of all, they will enjoy Paris fully at the Hotel Bellevue.
