Hotel situated on pedestrian shopping street. Easy access to stores and Lille museum/cultural attractions. Short walk to Lille Flandres and Lille Europe train stations. Rooms small but well appointed. Remember to ask for the internet cable when you check in, WiFi only available in the lobby/restaurant. No elevator, highest floor is the 3rd (4th for N Americans) so walk up... More

I quite enjoyed my 4 nights in the Kanai. It was quiet (until 2am when the drunk young women went down the street singing(?) at the tops of their lungs). I did find the staff, especially the morning lady, quite friendly and helpful. The English of a few was limited so this could be a problem. The rooms are recently... More

This is a mainstream little hotel, which provided me for what I wanted. A good night of sleep. Its location in the centre, near the metro is a good reason to go back there when in no need of luxe.

Arrived at the Kanai for a two night stay, hoping to see a few sights in and around Lille. We got there at 1pm, carried our luggage up to reception, and the receptionist, Sophie I think, was busy having lunch, so said our room wasn't ready - although I did state I'd be arriving at midday on the check in...

very strange, this is so tall and skinny it's as if you have stepped into a wardrobe off the street. I liked it tho, it gave it a unique feel. It's right in the town centre and not far from the main train station, just head toward the big church. The décor was cool, v modern and sleek, all purples... More

We rented the last 2 rooms available - 1 superior and 1 privilege. The superior room was just big enough for the king sized bed, and the shower stall was small. The privilege room was very spacious and had a modern, larger shower stall. For 10 euros more, spring for the privilege room. Rooms were clean and modern. Toilets were... More

We found the location of this hotel to be perfect, easy walking distance from both stations, in the central shopping area but with several local bars, short walk to Grand Place and only 10 minutes walk to the old town. If you don't like stairs then this is not the place for you - even reception is one flight up... More

The location of this hotel is fantastic - just off the main square; perfect for the Christmas Market. Despite it being so close, it was not noisy due to decent double glazing. The view across the rooftops, although not exactly picturesque, was really characterful. We travelled with another couple, whose room was ready first, so we waited in theirs whilst... More

This hotel really gives value for your money! I have seen much more expensive "design hotels" that are less stylish than Kanai, and definitely less friendly. We stayed in a standard room in the top floor. There is no elevator, but if you don't mind that, it is a fantastic place to stay! The views over the pedestrian streets and... More
