We went for a Xmas weekend via Eurostar from London.
Hotel is directly outside the station and next to a main road, but due to great French engineering you don't even notice this.
Staff at the hotel speak very good English and are very friendly. They provided a map of the city centre.
The rooms are large, modern and clean. The style is modern and quirky which matches this new part of Lille. The TV is good with free film channel and also free wifi.
There is a shopping centre a short walk from the hotel towards the city centre, with all the normal shop and quick places to eat.
A bit further down the road is the centre with shops, cafes, restaurants and sites. Lille centre is quite small and easy to walk around. Grand Rue has lots of good restaurants and just a 10 min walk from the hotel. When I first visited Lille 10 years ago hardly anybody spoke English, now unlike most French the citizens of Lille welcome English speakers and are keen to converse in English. They came across as true people of Flanders warm, friendly and a pleasure to be with.
So thank you to the hotel staff and the people we bumped into both workers and general public who were just wonderful.
