Rather discreet in this area of Northeast Paris, the Accor group celebrated the opening of the Novotel Paris 20 Belleville on April 5. ” The Belleville district is new for Accor, it’s the first time we’ve opened a hotel there, and yet the Accor group already has 400 hotels in the Paris region and 200 in Paris

The Accor group has been rather discreet in this sector of north-eastern Paris, but on April 5 it celebrated the opening of the Novotel Paris 20 Belleville. ” The Belleville district is new for Accor, it’s the first time we’ve opened a hotel there, yet the Accor group already has 400 hotels in the Paris region and 200 in Paris
,” said Denis Sappey, the group’s COO for Southern Europe, at the event. The inauguration of Novotel Belleville was celebrated on April 5.
The four-star hotel opened at the end of November on the Boulevard de Belleville. And it has clearly found its clientele, since the hotel’s occupancy rate (73%) is significantly higher than the Paris average, thanks in particular to an acceleration in activity since mid-February.
With a surface area of 4,600 m², the result of the renovation of a former office building, the Novotel Belleville has 119 rooms. Their surface area (18 to 27 m²) has been optimized to meet the expectations of business and leisure guests, with a comfortable bathroom area. Special mention should be made of the rooms on the sixth and top floor of the hotel, which have balconies or even terraces offering an unobstructed view of the neighborhood and beyond. A fitness area has also been integrated into the Novotel Belleville.
Although the hotel does not have a meeting room as such, a 12m² space, which can be used privately for half a day, has been set up in the coworking area under the Wojo brand. Ronan Sévellec, General Manager of the Novotel Paris Belleville, mentions the ” calm environment [which] makes it the ideal place to cowork, a place of relaxation with an opening to the outside world,” he adds. This opening was welcomed by the Mayor of the 20th arrondissement, who attended the inauguration on Tuesday: ” It is very appreciable that this place is totally open to the neighborhood, open to the residents,” notes Eric Pliez, who adds, ” Paris, a tourist capital, now deserves that we devote ourselves to what the Es
t be more valued “. The Novotel Belleville and its restaurant Mozami, where business travelers and locals already live together, should contribute to this.
I’m Michelle, and I love to travel. As a former hotel expert for one of the world’s largest hotel chains, I’ve stayed in nearly every type of room imaginable (including many that were not so desirable!). Nowadays, I am fortunate enough to be able to explore the world on my own terms. From international flights to learning different languages, there is nothing too far out of reach!
