Central for all the sites of Lille. Rooms were not very big but were fine and comfortable. Some rooms have separate loo and bathroom (which I don't prefer!). A bit noisy because the wall-mounted hairdryer sounds like a pneumatic drill in the morning and next door's woke me up. Complicated shower, but it worked fine Breakfast was OK and lots... More

After a slightly hesitant and spontaneous booking through lastminute.com, we were welcomed to the most amicable and beautiful hotel, consequently all initial fears were instantly allayed . The staff here go above and beyond to please the guests, (for me they went on a forty minute search to find an adapter for my phone!.) Without having stayed here our experience... More

We booked Hotel Carlton for a conference we were hosting in Lille in February 2014. We brought 30 rail industry experts from the UK to Lille and used their conference facilities and stayed in the hotel for 2 nights as guests. The conference room was spacious and well equipped for our needs, with all the AV requirements easily accommodated. I... More

Right in the heart of Lille it's a perfect place to explore the new and old town. The reception area has a welcoming ambiance and the staff courteous and polite. Our room was on the top floor and while large and accommodating, it was rather tired and in need of updating. Stained ceilings and a shabby sofa hardly complemented the... More

A frequent visitor to Lille over the years, I have always wanted to stay in the Hotel Carlton. It sits at the edge of one of the central squares, with its large windows looking haughtily down on the activities of the hoi polloi. A grande dame of hotels, perhaps. And perhaps that's why I found the stay when it happened... More

My wife and I stayed here last week and we found the reception staff very helpful and friendly. Actually that seems to be true of Lille as a whole - people willing to make an effort to understand my execrable French or to speak English. Good breakfast except you do need to get down there pretty sharpish as the food... More

Stayed here last week with friends. I have stayed before and enjoy the typical old French atmosphere. Had good rooms on third floor overlooking the Opera. Very quiet. Had breakfast out and the only complaint from my friends was the tiny toilet, but it was nice that it is separate from the bathroom. Very comfortable bed and pretty blue walls... More

Although we were only here for one night we had a lovely stay. The people on Reception were helpful and friendly, and the room was clean, comfortable and big enough for us. We heard no noise throughout the night, as there are 2 sets of balcony doors, so slept wonderfully. Everything you would expect in the bathroom, which was also... More
