We stayed in Balladins Lille for three nights as part of a Eurostar deal. It was friendly, clean comfortable and excellent value. It is centrally located and as others have said, its a great base. The Balladins chain seem to be franchised so perhaps that's why they try so hard? Anyway, if you are looking for a budget hotel in... More

This basic hotel in Lille is extremely close to the city centre, just a couple of minutes walk from Le Place de General de Gaulle and the Opera Theatre. It is also only 5-10 minutes over the bridge to Lille Europe, the Eurostar Terminal and is across the road from another main train station and the large shopping centre 'Euralille'.... More

This hotel is in a great position being less than 10 mins walk from the main Eurostar station and very close to the heart of Lille which is a 2 min walk around the corner. The rooms are very compact, there is no wasted space, yet they are clean and functional with a comfortable double bed. There are no tea... More

Only 10 mins walk from the Eurostar terminal so very convenient. Next door is a micro brewery so even better. You can walk everywhere, only 15 mins from Palais Beaux Arts and 5 mins from the main square and the old town. If you need to use the metro it is just across the road as is a selection of... More

This small hotel situated by Lille Flanders train station is also very close to the centre of the city. You can walk most places you want to go. There are plenty of restaurants, patisseries, shops etc nearby. Wifi is fast and reliable. Staff are very pleasant, helpful and friendly.

I visited Lille with my husband, sister and her partner. I booked Balladins hotel as it was central. I was pleasantly surprised by friendly staff comfortable room and very good breakfast. The only downside was it didn't have a lounge to sit and chat as the weather was rather cold and would have been nice if there had been somewhere... More

A small hotel ideally situated across from the train station and amid all the action. We found the room comfortable, the staff pleasant and had a great meal just next door. Parking is a bit tricky as the neighbourhood is very busy. We had to park several blocks over. There is a shopping centre parkade just a few blocks off... More

The hotel is ideally situated for exploring Lille and also for arriving by rail. It is directly opposite Lille Flandres rail and metro station, with Lille Europe for Eurostar and inter city connections approximately a 5 minute walk away. On the hotels doorstep you have plenty of shops, brasseries, and plenty of places for food. The Grand Place and heart... More

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
