We stayed here for a Saturday night having driven over via the Eurotunnel. We have travelled widely and stayed in many hotels. This is very good. The service is attentive, not imposing and very friendly. Our room was a deluxe double room on the 1st floor. Initially we were concerned it might be noisy but it wasn’t; well sound-proofed and, in any case, it wasn’t too busy outside at night. There is parking for €16 per night (only 8 spaces) which we used. Be warned, when we first drove up we found enterprising locals “reserving” public metered parking spaces hoping to get us to pay them a tip. It was a Saturday, so perhaps that won’t happen so much on week days. Certainly on the Sunday, when Lille is very quiet, this had stopped.
Our room was excellent with a huge rain shower, bug bathroom and comfortable bed. The decoration was high quality and there was a complementary mini bar and coffee. The breakfast was good. Well stocked with bread, cheeses, meats, cereals, pastries, fresh juices, fruit, and yoghurts. Nothing unexpected, but nothing missing you might expect. Coffee was good.
The location is great, close to the centre and about a 10 minute walk from the beautiful old part of Lille. The square around the hotel isn’t particularly attractive, but not very noisy which is good. It’s not really close to the Eurostar station, but that area’s not the most attractive part of Lille in any case, so staying somewhere else is probably better.
All in all an excellent hotel that deserves its good reviews. We would come back when we visit Lille again.
