Me and my girlfriend booked to stay here for 3 nights while we visited Lille and took a day trip to Paris. We found the hotel was well located from the Old Town, the Park Zoo & the Train Station. All was within walking distance. The accommodation was nice and staff at reception were friendly & helpful. The room could... More

We stayed a few nights here expecting Lille to be a quiet little village, that it is not! The hotel looks magnificent, the bar area is absolutely amazing and the room was very spacious and well appointed. Would I stay here again NO! The reason I make this harsh comment is that the Hotel is quite some distance from most... More

This converted convent is tucked away and provides a very good level of quality. Clean rooms around the covered cloisters and courtyard. The city centre is only 10 minutes walk away and the Citadel only 5 minutes away. Really enjoyed discovering Lille. Parking cost €18 for 24 hours but I objected to having to pay €9 for Wifi access.

We stayed here for two nights. A few minutes walk from Lille centre and short taxi ride from Eurostar station. The staff all very friendly and people in reception really helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable. Good choice of food at breakfast. We had drinks in the bar both evenings and there was a relaxed atmosphere with music... More

My partner and I stayed for three nights at the Couvent des Minimes and had a wonderful stay. We could not fault our room, plenty of space, comfortable bed plus the air-con certainly was a blessing as we experienced one of the hottest days in France this year so far. The location was perfect for the two of us. Only... More

My partner and I spent three nights at the hotel whilst visiting the beautiful city of Lille. The hotel is a little way out of the city in a quiet location, around a 20 minute walk from the Euro star station. Set within an old convent and the building is the most beautiful setting for the hotel. Upon our arrival... More

This hotel was a delight. It was beautiful inside and felt most luxurious. The corridors to the bedrooms looked over the atrium which housed the bar, restaurant and lounge area. Our bedroom was large and overlooked the car park but was quiet. The bathroom was tiled in a green marble style. The only complaint is that when showering which is... More

I have stayed in this hotel many times on business. The location is great, the price is reasonable and the staff is very friends. The funny this is many locals do not know where it is. Probably not the most child friendly hotel, but for business or simply travelling in and around Lille its perfect. Oh, and the set menu... More

Stayed one night on a fleeting visit to Lille from the UK. I feel sure I couldn't have chosen a more pleasant and comfortable hotel. No language problems, the reception staff spoke excellent English, were both helpful and friendly. My room was a good size, on the ground floor with large opening windows, nice to be able to let in... More

Impressive building design, sympathetically converting the old convent into a hotel, with rooms opening onto vaulted corridors which overlook the atrium which is glass roofed and houses the bar/lounge/restaurant. Room i had was on 3rd floor attic and was quite small, no air con, but clean and tidy. Dinner in the restaurant was ok, as was breakfast, great selection of... More
