1. Great bathroom but could only run water for 30 seconds before drains started overflowing. 2. Same doorcode for every room means effectively everyone has the same room key. Strangers walked in on two different occasions. 3. No card facilities mean bill can only be paid in cash. What year is this? 4. Breakfast consisted of a cut up baguette... More

Great place, with a very nice atmosphere and fabulous rooms! Very good service and 5 star housekeeping, the best I have ever seen. This is coming from a former hotel manager for 15 years. Tea and Nespresso coffee facilities in the room, a nice touch. Close to the centre, restaurant and shopping area. Parking can be a little tricky and... More

Helpful and friendly host, well located for walking to the old town of Lille, room spotlessly clean and nicely presented. Overall place has a lot of charm and well designed. Breakfast good too. We had the duplex which is on the third floor. Lose one point for being on the third floor without a lift/bathroom being on a different floor... More

Beautifully renovated B&B. Very modern while the old accents are well preserved. Very comfortable room and bed (very important for a good nights rest :-)). Bathroom was fully equipped. The owner gave us a warm welcome and several tips for our visit to Lille. Definitely worth coming back again. The only downside was the parking space. It is very hard... More

I loved this place. A clean studio with a handful of suites. The owner is an architect and it has impeccable furnishings. Breakfast was fresh squeezed orange juice, beautiful pastries and robust coffee. It is in a lively section of town. The only drawback if any was we had to pay cash/check and we had even asked the gentleman prior... More

A stunning B and B. From the moment we booked Emanuel could not have been more helpful and friendly. The building is beautifully restored with some really quirky artwork and ornaments. The room we stayed in was quite fabulous and well equipped with everything we could want. Breakfast in the amazing breakfast room was just perfect with Emanuel juicing the... More

Excellent room, well equipped but no lift so check which floor you will be on. Staff could not be better, helpful and efficient. Lovely breakfast room. Location next to main road but noise no problem. Ten to fifteen minute walk to centre of town. Parking slightly problematic but o.k once a (free) space has been found. Overall a very pleasant...

The beautifully restored building was a treat to return to each day and our room (Citadel) looked over the park which was lovely. The room was well appointed, light, airy and very clean. We had a kitchenette, little table with chairs and a chaise lounge. There were some tiny annoyances like nowhere to hang your wet towels and not enough... More
