Hotel de Londres
Ranked #99 of 107 Hotels in Lille
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Very conveniently located, I was looking forward to my 2 night stay. However, on checking into my room, there were 2 drainage pipes running through my tiny single room with 24hrs water running noise, which when i entered the room initially led me to believe that my bath tap was left on by the cleaning person. On bringing this to the notice of the guy at the reception, I was told this is how it is and he cannot do anything about it. After my tiring journey, I wanted to take a nap but because of the incessant disturbing noise, couldn't sleep and infact my condition deteriorated with me not being able to get out on that day and didn't sleep all night as well, thus wasting my 1 day out of the 2 I had planned to be in Lille. (As an aside, one of the guys out there was very helpful in sorting out an adapter problem to help with my laptop charging).

The long dreary stair to reception did not inspire confidence but the welcome was warm and the room surprisingly nice: newly decorated , albeit on the cheap, but clean and airy with a very comfortable bed and clean linen. Although the room overlooked the busy square in front of the station very adequate double glazing meant we heard not a sound and had an excellent night's sleep.
It was convenient for exploring Lille and for many restaurants and cafes. We had only an overnight stay but I'd book there again!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the recently decorated rooms and make sure it's doble glazed.

on arrival decided we would not be eating breakfast in this establishment which was gloomy & very unwelcoming, the room was so small we could not walk round small double bed to even open window!!!, Room was made up for single even though we had booked a double, tv did not work, some lights did not work, and the shower was broken & would not attatch to wall, when i asked for these problems to be put right, all i got was a shrug of the shoulders & told they "would ask boss" needless to say he never arrived & the problems never fixed. this hotel is overpriced, run down, and to be avoided at all costs!!!!!

Basic simple hotel near stations in city centre. For 70 euros maybe could have expected better but Lille midweek seemed expensive .

The large number of Hotels around the Place de la Gare area are all much the same.Londres is a star or 2 more but the quality of the accommodation is not markedly different to the numerous one stars like Faidherbe or Coq Hardi.The main differences are the abscence of cockroaches,marginally better traditional French lower middle class decor,a bit more space and a TV.But this is still one of these Parisien type shabby well worn grim places with noisy lift.When I went I had to enquire how to switch on the electricty in my room and ended up using the floor as a bed as the mattress was the usual U shaped lump.The French bolster pillow was also not to Anglo Saxon taste.The immedate area is a bar and small red light area at night but theres instaneious access to all the centre of Lille.Theres a large number of pavement mussels and chip shops below selling chips and beer all day and night.the area is outside the central station and thus is heavily busy and noisy as one would expect.I have stayed in and looked at quite a few of hotels in Lilleand they fall into 3 types.Shabby and cheap.More respectable but dearer.Ultra modern.Often dear and booked sometimes "modern shabby" if a cheap motel type place.

very cheap, clean, comfortable accomodation, overlooks the fountains and cobbled streets. The lift / elevator is mad! try doing the 'fatal attraction lift scene' in there... i tried... no chance.
