“Charming staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

This is very convenient for Lille-Europe station so great if you arrive on the Eurostar- it's literally round the corner. It's about 10-15 minutes walk to the old town with its cafés and brasseries. We arrived at 12 and asked to leave our bag but the room was ready so we were checked in early. All the staff were very helpful and spoke excellent English. The room was good with a comfy bed and stylish decor. The hotel is all very nicely appointed and it deserves its number one status on here. I would've given it 5 stars but there was no loo roll in the toilet in the foyer!

Excellent hotel - well worthy of 5 stars. Great room, comfortable large bed. Bathroom facilities excellent and robe / slippers all available. Casino was great - although we were unlucky! Some strange dress code rules, though.

We were shown to an incorrect room which took some time to resolve and although I had made some comments with the booking that this was a special weekend the hotel didn't do anything to help. In addition the turn down service did not do its job although I had spoken to the chamber maid personally! The breakfast is very average, not five star at all.

Excellent location, walking distance from train station and city centre. Modern design and comfortable beds. The corner room is huge and has amazing views over the city. Contrary to other reviews, had no problems whatsoever with the internet connection. Definitely recommended!!

Room Tip: If you can afford to, book a corner room!

Absolutely very well located (approximatively 5' walk from the main train station, 12' from the old city, 10' from the Zenith), this 5* hôtel is first class in many areas and makes you feel like in Las Vegas...

I stayed in the hotel for a couple of days and was incredibly impressed by the customer service, room, food and facilities.
This hotel literally has everything, except for reliable fast broadband. The internet connection was incredibly poor and unreliable. But, at a hotel like this, with spa, restaurants, theatre and casino, why would you want to be connected all the time. It really is a great little "bubble" in a quite sterile city.

Facilities are absolutely first class in all areas of the hotel. Bedrooms have everything you need with great views. Food was ok and wine was excellent. When we finished dining we asked if we were allowed to take our drinks into the casino (within the hotel) and we were told yes. When we arrived at the casino we were refused entry with our drinks and had to sit in an adjacent theatre reception area which was closed at the time so dim lighting and not very welcoming. Disappointing as we had just bought a bottle of wine and wanted to relax and enjoy in nice surroundings inside the casino. Once inside it was ok but they could improve the customer experience with more focus on service inside the casino. Service within the hotel was excellent
