The hotel is conveniently located to the main attractions and shopping, restaurants etc. I upgraded to a superior room - not worth the money. The rooms are past their sell by date. If you drive and have a large vehicle then you will be reverse parking into the courtyard at 90 degrees and reversing into one way traffic trying their... More

Reasonable priced hotel, just walking distance from the old city and fancy restaurants. The hotel is fine, carpet in the room a bit worn and you cannot sleep with the windows open as noice already starts quite early in the morning (06:00). Breakfast is far too expensive, 19,= per person for a regular bufet. You better go to a local... More

Very nice hotel in a quiet location. The grand place was a 5-10 minute walk and the citadel and zoo less than 5 minutes the opposite way. Highly recommend the free zoo. Room was reasonable size and clean with air con, safe and space in the mini bar to store our own drinks. Our stay was very quiet, there are... More

We returned to the Couvent three years after our first stay and found it still a convenient place for a short break in Lille, being about 10 minutes on foot from the Grande Place and main attractions. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful and the building, adapted from an old convent, is attractive and spacious though the rooms are perhaps... More

Hotel is nicely located a bit outside of the city centre but within walking distance. Friendly staff, smooth check in, good breakfast. Room is big for 3 of us (a couple with a 12-year old child). Perfect location to discover the city, very closed to Lille Citadel that offers free zoo and nice place to walk. 10 minutes walk to... More

We had a 3rd floor room which had no view, looked over the atrium so disappointing. Hotel was a fair distance from the main square in the old quarter and didn't find the centre of Lille. Hotel was 4* and so was restaurant, bit pricey and wasn't offered the set menu which would have been cheaper. Room had no drawer... More

My son and I stayed here for 3 nights in May in order to visit family war graves in the local area. The staff were extremely helpful, the rooms and service excellent. A very interesting conversion and use of space in an old building. My only quibble was the food available, not a lot of choice and very expensive, most... More

Wow!! Perfect, the wonderful, historic building is such a joy. The modern atrium and bar is so sophisticated. The rooms are just lovely. The check in experience is very good, there is just a feeling of total luxury without pretension.
