“Not comparable to business hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2010

My stay in this hotel was not as expected.
Rooms and bathroom are very small. I was alone so I can put my luggage on the second bed. The wifi connection failed very often and the room was noisy (due to drunk homeless who stay near the subway station).
Breakfast was OK.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in connection with a conference at the University of Lille III in September, 2010. The desk clerk was quite helpful, though I don't believe he spoke English (I spoke French with him). The hotel is VERY basic--not even a hair dryer in the room, which was quite small for a double. There's a breakfast area but the cost is ridiculous; instead, go across the street (away from the subway entrance) to a terrific little bakery that has two tables, and indulge in the best croissants and coffee of your life for a couple of euros. The hotel is located literally next to a subway station, which makes travel convenient, and about 50 yards past that is a huge supermarket. But don't expect any amenities--even the desk clerk shutters his check-in area after 11 and leaves. There are much nicer hotels closer to the center of town for not much more (we paid 89 euros per night, and both parking and internet came with a fee. Parking was in a small, dark underground garage a short drive from the hotel).

Stayed for one night with my partner and 4 month old son.as part of a tour round northern France. I had booked though booking.com which had stimpulated that there were three people staying and so we were given and room for three people despiteme having added - in French, that the 'third person' was infact a 4 month old baby who did not need a bed as we were travelling with our own cot. Anyway, nevermind. The room was sizeable, a disabled room I think, a double and a single bed and a wet room for a bathroom. The latter, while clean, didn't function too well as a wet room however, as there was no incline or gradient in the floor and so the water did not drain adequately and instead just sloshed around the room and tried to seep into the bedroom carpet.
The area of town wasn't the best either with hard drinking undesireables hanging around during the day and night, but we weren't there to hang around the hotel.
As a cheap, cheerful, clean and functional base to have a look around Lille this place ticks all the basic boxes. There is also secure parking which was a useful and attractive facility for €8.
