Friendly staff and location is good for both the Eurostar and old lille. Rooms are a little tired, but are clean and comfortable. We had a very early check out and forgot some items in the room. Staff found the items and emailed us to tell us. They then sent the items on to us in London at no extra... More

you can see from my profile that I have travelled well within Europe. So I book hotels well knowing the fact that the elevators will be small and that size of bathrooms will be small but this hotel takes it to the next level. The room we stayed probably has the smallest bathroom in the world and has sliding doors... More

The Balladines is a very good budget hotel in the centre of Lille, close to Lille Europe station and the Zenith Arena. Rooms are clean and have been recently refurbished, although a little small with no tea and coffee making facilities, they are completely functional. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful and there is someone on reception duty... More

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
