Hotel Barriere is ultra modern, opened only in late 2010. The site is not prepossessing - opposite the back entrance to Lille Europe railway station, on a busy road and half a mile from the historic centre of the city and a casino in the other part of the same building. But the hotel is extraordinarily comfortable. Our bedroom was the quietest we have stayed in anywhere in the world, whether rural or city or beach. No plumbing noises, no creaking floor boards, no noise from the neighbouring rooms, no noise of door shutting - just peace! The bed was large and comfortable, the whole room and the bathroom well appointed - the shower was walk in but my wife disappointed because she would have preferred a bath. Oh yes, one drawback - the free wifi was inordinately slow. Surely this sort of hotel should have fast broadband. Excellent buffet breakfast.but not very well managed. And a gourmet restaurant, though it was shut on Sunday evening..
Ask for one overlooking the back of the hotel - better view!
