Bellevue Hotel is located bang in front of the mall, the main place of activity of tourists & locals. The climb to the hotel is steep, but worth it. True, there is no fire place in the rooms, but the prompt service & obedient staff more than make up for it. The people are courteous & always greet you with a smile to brighten up your otherwise chilly day. Room heaters or hot water bags are available on request, and you have to pay a nominal charge for the same. The view point at the terrace is breathtaking. Its an altogether different experience to have a hot cup of the famed darjeeling tea sitting on the terrace, overlooking the majestic Kanchenjunga.
Overall, a good place to check in.
