“It is OK.”
Reviewed July 21, 2009

Nothing fancy and nothing very comfortable. I did not sleep very well because the room was VERY hot and because the street noise is aweful. I seriously believe that some people here would rate it a 4 or a 5. They have 20 parking spots available for €11 per night and they MUST be reserved well ahead of time.

The Lille Europe is a modern purpose-built hotel situated in a building housing the Eurolille shopping mall, which is about 300 yards from the Eurostar station. The walk down the Rue Faidherbe to the central Grand Place is under 10 minutes and from there the old and new towns are within easy reach.

The hotel is a budget 2* and as such the rooms are basic and small, however more than adequate for a short stay. Free wired internet access is provided in every room, along with a minibar (beer and soft drinks all €2) and flat-screen TV (only French channels). There is no kettle in the room but the breakfast room has free tea and coffee-making facilities.

The hotel is situated on a busy road (Ave. Le Courbusier) overlooking a park. The windows are heavily glazed which are good at keeping the noise out, but the lack of air conditioning means that in hot weather (29 degrees when we were there) the entire hotel acts like a greenhouse, and the room was literally unbearable with the windows shut. Unfortunately when we were there the paved area next to the hotel was used by some teenagers for an impromptu party with very loud dance music from car stereos and shouting until 4 am. So we had the choice of boiling with the windows closed or lying awake with the windows open. So on the whole we'd recommend the hotel for breaks when it's cool enough to have the windows closed, but catagorically not when it's hot enough to require leaving them open.

Hint: Shop around to check you get breakfast included - it's fine but not worth paying extra for. We went with 1800Hotels for £55 per room per night.

Pros: Location is convenient, very cheap, friendly (English-speaking) staff, decent breakfast, left-luggage room, room clean and comfortable, free internet if you have a laptop.

Cons: Location not the most salubrious in town, very hot and noisy in summer.

This hotel is perfect for a short stay in Lille (1-2 nights). It's very clean and feels very safe and only a two minute walk from the International terminal where the Eurostar trains stop, and about an eight minute walk from the centre of town. There is a shopping centre right next door and plenty of cafes just a muntes walk away. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpfull and the continental breakfast was more than adequate. It is only a two star and therefore pretty basic - no English TV channels (not really a problem if you are out enjoying yourself!), toilet paper is of the annoying kind i.e. single sheets that have to be pulled out and sometimes rip, no aircon and no in room safe. We had a room at the front of the hotel and it was pretty noisy especially as we had to keep the window open due to the heat...I am sure a better night sleep would be found on the opposite side of the corridor. If you are looking for all the trimmings then this hotel is not for you but if you just need a good clean and safe place to rest (with a nice breakfast!) you won't be displeased.

We stayed at the Hotel Lille Europe for a single night in May. We chose the hotel based on the previous TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed.

The hotel is only 5 minutes walk from the Eurostar station and within easy walking distance of pretty much anything you'd want to see in Lille. The Palais Des Beaux Arts was about 20 minutes away on foot, the citadel about the same, the shopping centre less than 10 and streets full of restaurants the same again.

The room itself was small and functional but very clean and perfectly acceptable for the price. Really we weren't expecting anything too plush so were quite happy with it being basic but presentable.

Staff spoke good English and were friendly and the breakfast was excellent. A nice selection of the usual continental fare.

All in all I would definitely recommend this hotel and I would be more than happy to stay there again.

This is almost a hidden gem as it blends into the surroundings so well. Once inside the front doors you are welcomed by the polite English speaking staff. They allowed us to check in almost 2 hours before the right time and the room was ready, clean and perfectly placed. We were up on the 5th floor overlooking the busy road and the nice park opposite.
Just 250 yards from the station at Lille Europe and 5o yards from the nearest metro. An ideal place to stay to exploere Lille for a few days.

This place is absolutely fine for an overnight stop. No frills, just a great location (250m) from the exit of the Lille Europe station, reasonably large, clean rooms with free Internet access and satatlite tv (CNN and BBC World). A very good breakfast at €9/- and an efficient front desk. All for under €100 a night.
