This was a very good value 4 nights stay at the end of September. The room was small, but no matter as we were out all day and in the evenings. It was very clean, soundproof - we were opposite the Gare de Lille Flanders - and the breakfasts on the 7th floor were excellent, especially as the weather was... More

Stayed here for four nights as a base for exploring the city and it served me just fine. It's ideally placed for convenient access to the stations - across the road from Lille Flandres and five minutes walk from Lille Europe. Equally great location for visiting all parts of the city - the main Places are five to ten minutes... More

This hotel is fine for a one night stay, particularly if you need to catch an early train. The staff are helpful and efficient and the rooms are clean with all the basics. Some of the rooms are very small but they are cheap and for one night they are fine. When we stayed we had to catch a train... More

The location is perfect to visit Lille or go a bit further afield, the hotel is located right outside Lille flanders station, it's also a five minute walk from Lille Europe station. We travelled to Ypres and Tournai from Lille Flanders station. The hotel staff are very friendly, Lille map provided when we arrived. The room is small but very... More

We stayed at Balladins, Lille centre for the Braderie weekend. It is ideally situated right opposite Lille Flandres railway station and right in the centre of town. The room was clean and comfortable, with a great view of the town below, and had been recently refurbished. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, we were provided with a map... More

The best thing about this hotel was the location, just a short walk from the Eurostar station and next to Flandres station. We didn't try the breakfast as there were plenty of cafes nearby, It was clean and comfortable, if not a bit basic. No hotel lounge, no coffee making facilities, only a desk chair in the room. At over... More

Having read recent reviews on trip advisor i did know what to expect. Although our room on first floor at back of hotel was small it was clean and comfortable. I would have no hesitation in staying here again on a short stay in lille as it is conveniently placed for train stations and city centre. The staff were pleasant.... More

Visited this hotel for two nights on Wednesday . Bear in mind it cost around £34 a night for two of us. It's a hot hotel and I couldn't say it was a hot day, they do need air con there. Great location, in the centre of Lille, handy cafés next door to hotel. We did ask to move room... More

The hotel is in a central location, opposite Lille Flanders station (not Lille Europe, which is a 5 mins walk), and very close to the main square. However, my hotel experience here was not so great. I arrived at the hotel early in the morning, and was literally told by the receptionist to go away and come back later, I... More
