We spent 3 nights at the Hotel Up recently. The hotel is very modern and funky and the room was well furnished & fully equipped with L'Occitane toiletries. The bathroom was very spacious with new towels at your request on a daily basis.
We picked this hotel based on it's proximaty to the railroad stations and central to everything, and it didn't disappoint at all. The staff were absolutely lovely and extremely courteous, checking in and checking out was problem-free! Basically if something is not right with your room/stay just ask the staff. They are there to help and do so willingly. We were even given a hug of milk each night to make tea in our room!
We didn't eat at the hotel but explored the restaurants nearby. There's a thai, chinese, italian- "Romona" right across the road from the hotel. Lots of other cuisines are just around the corner so you can be spoilt for choice. There are lots of places near the hotel to visit. The buggest aatraction for us was the big Wazemmes Market on Sunday. Definately a place to get bargains and perfectly safe and only 3 stops on the metro from the hotel. Get there early and spend the whole day. Another main attaraction was the Upside Down House near to Museum of the Hospice Comtesse. "Fantastic" exhibition in Lille of museums, gallaries and sclptures runs across Lille until January 2013.
Hotel up and Lille is definately a place I would go back to.
