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

We got a special deal through euro Star for this hotel, and it was a clean comfortable hotel about 3 minutes walk from Euro Star and in the centre of Lille. If you can get a cheap deal away, then this hotel is well worth considering, although try and get a room at the front of the building. We were... More

Stayed here for one night on business. So hot in the room, so had window open and the smell of bacon and sewage was awful. Also got bitten by mosquitoes so not a good sleep. The bathroom was good and clean, but I wouldn't recommend the room otherwise.

A basic hotel extremely well placed for visiting Lille and surrounding area. There is a buffet breakfast and helpful staff are available 24 hours. The room was very clean and the bathroom well thought out to maximise its functionally in a very limited space. That being said, the room was very small but there was enough room for two and... More

This hotel is close to Lille Europe with restaurants and cafes around it. Although I must say the location is the saving characteristic of this hotel, it can be a bit disappointing. The room I had was very small. As this seemed to be a budget hotel (I wouldn't know as I booked this in conjunction with Eurostar, which seemed... More

This hotel is basic but it is very well placed for a city break being so close to both main stations. The room and shower room were small but very clean and the bed was surprisingly comfortable. If possible I would suggest asking for a room either at the back of the hotel as noises from outside the hotel in... More

We spent a weekend in Lille, and were pleasantly surprised by the hotel and particularly the location. It is virtually opposite the station and only a few minutes walk from Eurostar. The old town is closeby and the area was not seedy as some station locations can be. Our room was on the fourth floor overlooking the station square and... More
