This hotel is part of a chain of hotels as there are many these days. They offer relatively cheap rooms but are otherwise nondescript and lack the personal touch you may find in for instance family run hotels.
Staff is friendly and some speak good English (and some not or poor)
On one side of the hotel is a busy motorway so ask for a room on the other side. I did and could even sleep with the window open. The room is basic with a large bed, small desk and a TV with only French channels. The bathroom is not that big.
The wireless internet signal strength was OK , sufficient to watch streaming media. WiFi internet is free but you have to sign up with your personal details to get access. When you have signed in you will receive the password via SMS on your mobile phone so make sure you have that with you and charged.
Breakfast is an additional € 6,- (October 2012) for which you a choice from the breakfast buffet which includes cereals, bread, croissants, poached egg and bacon, jams, honey, yoghurt, coffee/tea and fruit juice. Not bad for the price paid.
Below the hotel is a large garage in which I could park my bicycle for free.
The hotel is in a somewhat remote part of Lille with many office buildings and some domestic housing. Lille centre is a 20-30 minute walk
All-in-all one of the cheaper reasonable options in Lille.
