We paid $55 euro for a room on a Saturday afternoon without breakfast. Rooms are very small if not facing the street. Good location. Easy walking distance to the old city. If you are looking for US type of hotel accommodations, no need to stop. It was clean, the desk clerks spoke English. We were just staying one night so... More

Nothing fancy here. Rooms/chambers are small. Front rooms facing street are larger and more nicely appointed than rear rooms. Bathroom is very small. Had to keep door open when sitting on commode. Beds are adequate. Good location, across from Flandres train station in central business district. City mall is 150 yards down the street. Opera house is three blocks. City... More

for more than 100 EUro you expect some minimal standard - it did not meet these minimal standards at all (size of the room - too small, too dark. There are better hotels - but you have to walk more because they are further away from the railway station But it may be worth the time. The rooms are a... More

We booked this hotel from the tourist office as it appeared to be the only one in Lille which was dog friendly. The room was small, clean and basic but had no air conditioning so was more like staying in a sweat lodge. Also the TV channels did not appear to work. The hotel is however located directly opposite the... More

Booked this one last minute for a pre-Christmas long weekend with the family. Room very basic but clean. Small for 4 (2 double beds) and the shower-room even smaller. The staff member at reception was very helpful on check in but agree with the other comments about the reception staff in general, not the cheeriest but not exactly impolite either.... More

I have stayed in this hotel several times over the past five years, only overnight. As it is close to both Lille Europe and Gare Lille Flanders.I find it basic ,does the Job but only just,Staff seem to be different every time and have been friendly and indifferent.Better to avoid breakfast.

After spending an hour and a half driving round, trying to find the few Lille hotels, most were full by 8pm until we chanced upon this one. (Most small hotels are clumped round here). It was reasonably priced, does the job, nothing special but its in a pretty central location. The shower was the only real fault as its up... More

This is advertised as a two star hotel, so what do people expect? I've stayed in this hotel several times for weekends and, yes, it's basic but I don't go to Lille to visit this hotel I visit Lille and use this hotel as it's an ideal base. The bed was comfortable, the room adequate, the bathroom was good enough... More

Booked this hotel at very short notice. Had a long trip and literally walked staright out of the station and into the first hotel I saw. I like to try different hotels in Lille as I spend quite a lot of time there. I was tempted by the location as it is opposite Gare Lille Fandres and near some nice... More

You couldn't be better located for a short stay in Lille. Easy walk, even with luggage, from the Eurostar. Train to Brugge just across the road. Restaurants in abundance. Lots of churches and museums to visit and all within walking distance. The hotel is tired and the rooms at the front can be noisy with the windows open. The room... More
