This is a very quiet hotel and the old town centre is only a couple of minutes walk away. It's a unique building being an old convent. The superior rooms are huge. Breakfast was very tasty with a selection that will suit everyone. The staff are very friendly and as this has the only champagne bar in Lille it's something... More

My wife and I stayed in the hotel over the christmas period and had the christmas lunch in the Hotel. The staff were very helpful and spoke good english. There was a slight problem with our booking for the christmas lunch but having kept a copy of the email confirmation it was quickly sorted. The meal itself was excellent. There... More

We stayed here for a few nights on our honeymoon. The room we had was very small, too small for the hotel. Bar area was lovely, great setting for such a beautiful building. Restaurant was nice, but not very private, felt like we were pinned in a cage.

On a recent stay in Lille we decided to treat ourselves to a glass of champagne and a meal at the Couvent des Minimes, so booked a table for a midweek dinner. The setting in the hotel in the central bar area is lovely and with the piano playing in the background we thought we had made a great choice... More

The location and the building are just great. Nevertheless, this hotel is obviously stuck in the 90s. The room I had was big enough but with windows on the inside of the building. This could be OK if the noise inside was better monitored or managed. Then, the design and level of the rooms is really outdated, with even no... More

Lovely room, and a great location. The parking was very useful and wasn't difficult at all, certainly no pressure on parking the car (as some of the reviews that I've read suggested). We were offered an upgrade for a larger room and bed, but declined. The room we had was perfectly fine and was big enough. The only shame was... More

Great surprise and nice experience! the location is fantastic: close to the marvelous old city center... but close to the canal, in a quiet and beautiful surrounding. Welcome and care was very professional, service was great! Nice shopping items! To be recommended!
