Best Western Premier Why Hotel
Ranked #2 of 107 Hotels in Lille
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Don't be deterred by the funky exterior, which suggests that you might be approaching the Museum of Modern Art. This is a great little hotel and very convenient to much of what Lille has to offer. We received friendly service throughout our visit. We were extremely happy with our classic room, which made excellent use of space, and provided for a range of amenities. We really loved the oval windows, which opened both vertically and horizontally. Our view was exceptional. The only problem with eating in the area is that there are so many options within five minutes walking. We did not avail ourselves of the breakfast buffet, preferring to eat at one of the local restaurants. We looked in at the fitness center, and it was more than acceptable, but we did not use it. Overall, this hotel is about as close to perfect as it can get.

Room Tip: You can't lose with any room here.

We stayed here for 1 night and was thoroughly impressed with the hotel and staff. The hotel is very modern and feels brand new. The room had enough space and bathroom/shower was quite large. The location is great; just a short walk to the main square. We recommend it!

We are a couple and for us this hotel was great!
Everything we needed and more was there!
The place is well designed, slick and upscale. Modern big bathroom with big massage shower and night lights for fun. Great comfortable bed with different choices of pillows and covers. Nice coffeemaker, AC and much more ... (not expensive parking too, if you travel by car)

Was highly impressed with this hotel. The staff were lovely. The location is very good and only a few minutes walk to the main square. The rooms are great value for money. I thought the bed and shower were better than some supposed amazing 5 star hotels I have stayed in. I like the free mini bar angle too. I would stay here again.

One point however is that we (3 of us) agreed that the breakfast at 14 Euros was not worth it.

To repeat - I would stay here again, it is obvious why it is so highly rated on TripAdvisor.

We went to Lille for two nights in July 2013 and booked this hotel through Eurostar because of the Tripadvisor recommendations and we were very pleased. The hotel is modern with very friendly staff, good wifi reception and in a great location to explore old Lille.

We walked to the hotel in about 20 minutes from the Eurostar terminal.

We stayed in a Classic Double room which is well furnished and also has a free room safe. The walk in shower is fantastic. We can recommend a local beer sold in the hotel bar called "Rince Cochon" which is very strong and beer bar prices were not expensive compared to central Lille.

We can also recommend the bar directly opposite the hotel called Le Morrision for friendly staff and beer.

As others have reported the facade of the Why is unusual and the square in which it's situated is not the prettiest but that's all forgotten as soon as you walk in. Every member of staff were polite and extremely helpful, the beds were too comfortable for their own good - we didn't want to get up! The breakfast did seem steep at €14 but we took a look at it and the section & quality were superb. My only criticism would be that the deluxe room lacked storage for 4 guests, fine for 1-2 nights but that would be it.

It is easy to see why the BW Premier Hotel Why is#1 of the hotels in Lille.

The rooms are high-tech functioning works of art. The staff are friendly and it is located close to a wide variety of restaurants and also the Fine Art Museum which is first class.

It also boasts the best Irish Coffee I have had in many a long year.

We did not have the breakfast which at €14 seemed a bit expensive compared to what was on offer in the local establishments.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor!

Dear Sir,

First and foremost thank you for staying with us.
Thanks also for taking time and trouble to share your experience with the world on tripadvisor.
We really do appreciate.
Our clients are after all our best sales team (great review title by the way)!

Regarding breakfast: yes, ours is not cheap but we believe our offer can hardly been bettered. it consists of finest breads, baguettes, cakes and pastries made with love by our own baker, Designy butter, traditional jams, regional delicacies, finest Italian coffee, Van Houten hot chocolate and apple, carrot, grapefruit or orange juices. Not to mention the selection of quality sourced (from our best suppliers) smoked salmon, meats and cheeses.
Makes for a great start of the day and, we trust, at 14€, is pretty good value.
You could maybe give it a try it on your next trip!

Thanks again.

Best regards,

Pierre & the Team
