Room was basic but cheap, clean and sufficient! The Old Town, train station and shopping mall EuraLille are within walking distance of the hotel, which was a huge plus. Staff was friendly! Perfect for a weekend in Lille. If you wish to come by car, there's a parking garage (Effia) nearby that costs €20,20 per 24 hours.

Good location - a stone's throw from Gare Lille Flandres. The room is tiny and cramped, barely any hanging space and literally a foot in-between the end of the bed and the sliding door to the bathroom, which was broken and never fixed even after we repeatedly asked them to. It was unbearably hot in the room so if you're... More

Booked Balladins Lille on Hotwire and it was very inexpensive ($60/nt). The rooms were the smallest I've ever stayed in, just enough room for two to sleep and barely enough room to close the bathroom door once you're in. It is, however, in a great area, close to the Old Town and the train station, with a few great restaurant... More

The hotel is located in Lille center. Noisy location, but sound isolation is good. I was not impressed by the standard of the room. Quite old, but acceptable. Breakfast was also acceptable. What I liked the most was the view on the terrasse, where you can see old Lille.

I must say that i nearly regretted to have booked at the Balladins when I started to read the trip advisor review. So i'm going to be honest. The hotel isn't bad at all, It's actually quite good but (because there's a but) the location is an issue, I got a room on the 6th floor and taking into consideration... More

The hotel was very affordable and relatively tastefully decorated compared to other rooms in the same price range. Everything was very simple and clean. It was also cheaper for a couple to get a private room from this hotel than it was to get a private room in a hostel in Lille. The staff were very helpful and friendly and... More

My husband and I visited here in December 2014. We were staying in Lille for the Christmas markets and had booked through Booking.com , paying our hotel charge in advance (£260 for four nights without breakfast). The hotel is a ten minute walk from the Lille Eurostar station and right in the middle of the city. It's about a five... More

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.
