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

Great hotel, staff extremely helpful, friendly and welcoming. Room very comfortable and clean. Very wide range of food and drink for breakfast on top floor with terrace looking out onto centre, good value and great way to start the day. Location excellent for short stay in Lille with bistros, bars and wonderful architecture close by. I would stay in this... 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

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
