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

The Carlton Hotel is located conveniently in the Rue de Paris, just off the main central square and in the heart of the walking streets. The staff are attentive, particularly Sara, who via emails organised that a driver pick us up at Lille Europe railway station for the short €15 ride to the front door. Unfortunately we never got to... More

We had booked a room for three and were told we were upgraded to a better, bigger room. Goodness knows how big the other one was. We were three adults in two twin beds and a fold out bed at the end of ours. Not the luxury of a four star for sure. The staff were not that interested in... More

If you want to be at walking distance of many points of interest stay here. Parking can be a problem and should be reserved in advance. It ia a hotel garni, so you have to dine elsewhere, but there plenty of restaurants in this beautiful city. Hotel is old and a bit worn.

Loved this hotel and it's old-fashioned style. Reception and all staff exceptionally friendly, efficient and welcoming, nothing too much trouble. We had two quite large adjoining rooms, clean and comfortable and even a tiny balcony. Breakfast was good especially the coffee. Recommend this charming hotel, perfectly situated for exploring central Lille. The Sunday market away from the centre was great... More

A very short walk from the station, this is a charming hotel. Wonderfully clean, the room was very comfortable and finished to a high standard. Staff were polite and very accommodating. Buffet breakfast was superb.
