The hotel is in the heart of the centre, conveniently close to the main attractions of Lille and only a 5 minute walk from the international train station. Parking is possible in one of many garages nearby (€18,- a day). Since the rooms are really small and the view from the window is mainly concrete, sleeping is about all you... More

The hotel staff was very cordial, they received us with a smile on their faces (which is not very common in France haha). The rooms arent very spacious, yet they are very clean. Considering the price relation to quality, it is very good overall. Very nice breakfast french style.

We stayed at this 2-star hotel for 2 days during a brief business / leisure trip. Hotel is 5 min walk from the Gare de Lille-Flanders train station, with an inconspicuous entrance between 2 restaurants. All major attractions, including the citadel fort, are within 30 min walk from hotel. The major modern shopping mall, Euralille, (where Carrafour supermarket is also... More

About a 5 minute walk from the grand place, this hotel is very well placed. The staff we encountered were some of the friendliest we've met so far on our trip to France. The bathroom is nice and clean, and there is nothing to complain about the room. The only downside we had is that the beds were fairly firm... More

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
