This is an old hotel located in the center of the old section of town. The room was small and the decor was a bit tired, I experienced a comfortable, restful night. The service was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. It's a great location to get out and walk the area which has many restaurants, bistros, and shopping.

The hotel is situated in the heart of the old city. The building and the room are [of 50-60's] in a very good condition. Big, clean, comfortable room and bathroom. The bed is OK. It is managed by the owner's family so the service is excellent. We felt we were staying in a friend's house. We paid eu 65 without... More

Stayed there 1 night in August 2012 and I would definitely recommend it. Nice room, friendly and welcoming staff, located in the heart of town but on a quiet road. The hotel also has a large garage where the allowed us to store for free our 2 bicycles

The Hotel du Nord is well placed for exploring this lovely city and has the bonus of secure, inexpensive, car parking. As other reviewers have said, someone from the hotel will accompnay you to the garage and we were able to leave our car there until the end of the day after we checked out. The staff ranged from a...

We were here on our journey back to Holland. We were kindly accompanied to find the hotel garage, where we parked our two classic british sportcars. It is many times a problem to find a place with a garage, because we cannot close these cars. The staff in this hotel garni was very helpful and interested. We dined in a... More

A group of us had a pleasant stay in this city centre hotel in an elegant stone built building decked with red geraniums. The positives are that the hotel is in a great location for exploring the 17th century heart of this city on foot, the staff are pleasant and try to be helpful. I'm not sure how good their... More

This place is nothing like the website. The whole place needs a lick of paint and a good clean: our rooms were dusty and stank of cigarettes, with dirty bedcovers, peeling wallpaper and flithy old carpet. Walls are paper thin. If you're on a tight budget, the location is good. But don't expect charm or comfort!

This hotel enjoys a perfect location for restaurants and shopping. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast on the regular but not expensive. Possibility of garage nearby. But the hotel is very worn and old. It's really needs a makeover. The wallpaper is not very solid. Ok for one night but no more

Looks nothing like website. Rooms extremely old and tattered wallpaper. Expensive for what it is. Mattresses propped against Walls in corridor. Meagre breakfast for price. On upside staff friendly and helpful and extremely central location. Very poor value for money.

Hotel Du Nord is very centrally located but the room was very dated. Expected better facilities for the price! Breakfast at €6 per person was below average in comparison to other establishments. Do not expect to leave the hotel full! Parking is free but situated a distance from the hotel (knew this in advance). Staff were very helpful and recommended... More
