I've had a quick peek in one or two rooms in the front (and oldest) part of the Bellevue hotel. Rooms up to 111 have period furniture. Rooms from 112 up are modern (see 3rd photo) and although you might enjoy the period rooms with view of the river Mosel, I most certainly enjoyed the modern junior suite that we were in. More spacious, good bed, and very near the wellness center. That junior suite cost 138 euro per night.
Unique Quality: There is an elevator. Each floor is decorated with period furniture, wonderful lamps and old photo's and pictures.
Our room (114) was a junior suite. Included hair dryer, bath robes, extra big towels for the sauna/swimming pool, flatscreen TV, minibar, two couches in a sitting area, a safe, free internet (if you took your laptop which I did!), quite a few new magazines. Smoking allowed.
Hotel Bellevue is much larger than you would think. First of all, the main building is not that large. There is a modern extension that you wouldn't notice inside but visible from the outside. And there are a few buildings with more rooms and apartments at a mere 2-5 minutes walk away from the hotel. Make sure you state where you want to stay when you book. Or you might not find yourself in the main building. See my other tip for advice on rooms.

This is a 4-star hotel (bordering on 5-star if not worth it already, if you ask me).
I'll make a few more tips about this hotel because of its different aspects (wellness center, and dependances). See also the restaurant tip.
Unique Quality: As I write this, I'm still staying here (3 nights, free internet!) so I'll finish this tip when I get home. Excellent and very welcoming reception, great food, wonderful Jugenstil architecture, excellent junior suite, free use of wellness center (Turkish bath, swimming pool, sauna, etc.). Super breakfast, great location on the river Mosel in the lively center of Traben-Trarbach.
