This was stay nr. 4 in this hotel and next time we'll try another hotel in Lille. We liked this hotel very much in the past for its superb location (not in the busy centre but a short walk away, next to the citadelpark and zoo) and nice breakfast.
The staff does what they have to do, are friendly but nothing more. We went to Lille to celebrate my birthday and my mother in law her birthday and also our wedding-jubilee (10 years). A couple of days before our stay, my husband sent an e-mail to ask to do something special for the birthdays. He never got an answer. He asked it again at the reception desk, no reaction, not even 'happy birthday' or something...dissapointed. It was 30 degrees outside, and we initialy got rooms with no airco, under the roof, too hot! Luckily, changing rooms was not a problem. The new rooms where on the 'passerelle', this rooms have no outside view, look into the courtyard but have the so much needed airco.
The rooms where ok, everything needed was there (nice bathroom, tea-coffee, safe, mini-bar...) only the hairdryer doesn't work like it should be, couldn't dry my hair with that, didn't blow at al.
Like in my last review of this hotel, I was dissapointed there's no free wifi and the wifi is rather expensive. Also the parking is rather expensive, we parked on the parking of the citadelpark a 2 minute walk away from the hotel. On weekdays it is 4 euros/day and on sundays it is free, we parked the car on saturday and drove out on sunday for free, so we parked the whole weekend for free.
