... horrendous on the way to Versailles, torrential rain flooded the motorways and tunnels. I water plained a few times and the road was barely visible on approach into the city. It seemed to be me who did the driving in towns and it usually rained, it's crazy but I actually have driven in France more than I have in the UK! I much prefer driving on the right, In rain however, it is a different story. We shortly came to a Renault garage in St. Cyr ...

Upon reaching the door to our place, I was a little worried, and the elevator was only able o fit 1 person and bag at a time. Which was comforting, so I sent Chris up first while I waited. T our surprise, the owner, and 2 other men were waiting for us. We dropped off our bags, changed, and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bellevue Hotel - Montmartre Paris
I am so glad I have just seen these reviews on this hotel, if you can call it a hotel. I totally agree as i found the manager was rude, aggressive and he had zero customers care skills.
We booked a double room only to find 2 single beds with dirty bed linen.
There was no hot water. We didn't even bother going for breakfast as I was told it was bread, butter and jam and the fact that it looked like a school canteen and lets admit we don't want to be reminded on those!
However all this being said it did not put me off the area which was perfect and I would most certainly visit again, as for the hotel - Nope
"I thought it was great!"
I thought this little hotel was great! Was there in September 2004 for 2 nights. It's a no frills, basic place to lodge. My room was spacious enough for me, furnishings appeared brand new (I believed they had just gone through some renovations before I came.) and my private bathroom was very clean. The front desk staff was courteous and helpful. Would absolutely recommend it to travelers. My only concern would be coming back to the hotel at night by yourself. Montmarte isn't the best part of town and the street that the hotel is on could be perceived as either quiet and undisturbed or potentially dangerous for a lone female traveler.
Wonderful stay at the Hotel Belleview
Clean, basic, friendly. My daughter and I stayed at the Hotel Bellevue in March 2004 - I was surprised to read so many negative reviews after our experience there! Our stay was very positive - Beds were very comfortable ( I don't find many beds comfortable, as I have fibromyaglia!)breakfast was the traditional contential breakfast - room was larger than I expected and freshly decorated. Whenever I saw the manager he inquired after our stay. He and his wife work very hard for their hotel. Please remember that the French are a more reserved, somewhat formal people. Very close to a metro stop that retains its original Art Deco ironwork (hard to find in Paris). We enjoyed the neighborhood and its shopping.
Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Bellevue Hotel. We went prepared because we had read the reports on tripadvisor( after we had booked and paid ) Room 25 is to be avoided as there is no wardrobe or chest of drawers, just a metal table and 2 fold up chairs and a bed of course -we were promised a move which never happened . We asked for 2 extra pillows ( 3 times) but never got them. The staff on reception seem to be dominated by the very unfriendly, terse and ignorant owner/manager. Breakfast is a farce - we only tried one - basic fare with no choice in cramped surroundings. Go anywhere but here, im sure a hostel would have better amenities. Loved the area though.
Give it a miss
Probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. booked in and given keys, went to room and discovered it was someone elses. Breakfast was half french stick croissant jam and coffee not much use with a two year old baby. No fruit juice no facilities arrogant manager does not deserve any custom.
Stayed first week in June 2004. Not the friendliest staff and service with a smile does not appear to be a priority here. You must leave your room key at the front desk when you leave the hotel. This hotel looked well-maintained and our room was clean and new looking. However, the matress was worn and should be replaced; wasn't comfortable. The water was lukewarm during the peak morning times. There is no A/C which was needed during a 3-day heatwave. No soap, shampoo, or washcloths are provided, only towels. When I asked for an extra pillow, I was told that housekeeping is not there so I left a request for the next day and still didn't receive it. Went down to front desk to request another towel and extra toilet paper since only one new set of towels and a half-roll of toilet paper was left for us on one day. They didn't have any extra towels due to a strike at cleaning plant they said. (Other people were complaining and asking for more toilet paper, clean towels, and clean sheets). Desk person in charge was visibly upset, embarassed, and asked us to write down our complaints as he was not happy with management and response as he was trying to resolve these repeated problems from guests. Later that evening the manager called our room to apologize and brought us up a pillow and extra towels (at midnight!) Free breakfast consists of (not authentic french) croissants, baguette and coffee, so don't expect much. I liked the location and proximity to beautiful upper Montmarte Area, Sacre Cour and metro stations. Check out Tati stores two blocks away for Men, Women and Children. Great clothing deals at amazing low prices. Adjacent to fabric/garment districts.
More Management problems
Similar to the other reviewers, our problems were more with the Manager than the hotel. The hotel itself was just about acceptable, but bear in mind we were only there for one night as we were attending a concert at a nearby venue - the hotel was chosen for its proximity to the venue rather than anything else, so 'acceptable' didn't have to amount to much. The Manager's whole attitude was just rude: 'do this, don't do that, what do you mean you want some jam with your croissant...' You get my drift?
Having read the last 2 views, I feel I should add my own. I also had visited during the weekend of the previous reviewer. The manager made no attempt to correct the lack of hot water - and he made it clear no refund will be given - let alone an apology. Had I known, I would have stayed in a hostel - which I'm sure the service would have been superior to this dreadful hotel. I am appalled, and will endeavour that no family or friends of mine will EVER stay at this hotel - the manager would be better off running a pig farm (although I would feel sorry for the pigs), not a hotel - his attitude is a disgrace to the French people - is he intelligent enough to realise he is working in the public service industry???? Courtesy goes a long way!
Wish I had the benefit of the previous review of this property. I can only agree with the comments made. We stayed 3 nights at the Bellevue Hotel where the manager threatened to throw us and other guests out of his hotel as we complained that there was no hot water as the machine had broken. The manager was not prepared to call out a service engineer until Monday by which time most of us were checking out. The manager would not allow us to borrow the hot water kettle to heat some water to have a wash. Breakfast was chaotic as there were not enough seats and tables for all the guests and the linen was dirty. On the Monday our breakast was considerably smaller.
