“This wouldn't be a first choice hotel, but it's okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Not the best location, really quite rough, but the hotel is clean and tidy. Parking excellent and if you're travellng by car the location is not a problem. But if like us you find most of the other hotels are full, this hotel will do just nicely. We even found one of the best ever Moroccan restaurants within 300 yrds, and very reasonably priced. Ask reception for directions for Le Tagine it really is very good.
By the way I would sty here again!

we stopped at this hotel, and you certainly get what you pay for. Not in a good area of town!! The secure parking is very secure. The hotel is basic and not the best place, staff were good and helpful. It wasn't as clean as it could be but that is more to to it's tiredness than bad housekeeping. Certainly wouldn't want to stop there for more than one night and doubt very much if I would go back. We didn't eat there as y

We booked one night at this hotel through Expedia based on Tripadvisor reviews and because most of the reasonable hotels in Lille were fully booked. The hotel is just outside the main part of Lille, and transportation is necessary to get to the more interesting parts of Lille and train stations. Secure car parking was available for a modest charge. The hotel is very basic and the two rooms we booked were small. Decent bathroom, but mold on the ceiling of one. The carpeting was worn and questionable. Otherwise the rooms and the rest of the hotel were clean and well-kept. We did not take the breakfast that was available for a charge. The staff were very friendly and helpful. An economical place for an overnight stay, but would not recommend for a vacation of any length.

Room Tip: One of our rooms had a double bed and a single bed, the other a double bed and two singles.

Just on the outskirts of the town but we walked in 25 minutes, good hotel to stay in for a visit to Lille. Our booking included parking and breakfast.

OK so I booked this hotel and then looked at the reviews and thought I had made a terrible terrible mistake. Reviews ranged from bad decor to insect bites to a review in Frency which appeared to suggest the hotel was being used for illicit purposes. Anyway I was booked in and had paid and so I went. It was nowhere near as bad as I had feared. Decor was worn but clean. I saw no evidence of illicit use. I slept like a log in a comfortable bed, had two good showers and considered the hotel to be 31 Euro well spent. My car seemed reasonably safe. Just one word of warning, if you are in Lille late into the evening I would recommend getting a taxi back not the Metro (which is unmanned, no driver or guard). On the Metro, despite being 6 foot and 17 stone I felt intimidated by drunks and beggars and fearsome looking people and also noticed that despite throngs of people in Lille, sadly barely anyone seemed to be using the metro to get home, which I put down to them not feeling safe.

We stayed at the Nord for two nights during a short weekend hop around France & Belgium. The hotel is basic, and there is only a continental option at breakfast, but for the cleanliness and price this hotel was excellent value.

The hotel is situated on a main road, but you can't tell as they have double-glazing fitted throughout. They have a secure gated under-hotel car park accessible from the main road as well as by foot through the reception area. The staff are helpful and speak reasonable English.

The rooms themselves were comfy and had the usual facilities - TV, tea/coffee, bathroom with shower. We particularly enjoyed the fact our front facing windows had metal shutters that could be operated from inside the room. Being fitful sleepers this meant perfect dark in the room - to the point where we woke up at 9.30am convinced it was still the middle of the night!

All in all, this hotel doesn't have any bells and whistles, but if you want a comfy nights sleep in a cheap and clean hotel, give Hotel Nord a try.

The hotel claimed that our booking was cancelled by their agent. As our arrival was 10 at night we were given the choice of paying again double the amount or finding somewhere else. When we contacted our agency they had not cancelled the booking but did agree to refund us what we had paid them. They have now removed this and all associated hotels from their booking lists.
