I only discovered how much I had been ripped off at this hotel after I spoke to someone in the tourist office. For the price I paid (73 euros), I should have gotten better quality rooms, and certainly cleaner ones.
My first shock was when I decided to use the stairs rather than the elevator to get to my room. The stairs were covered in dust and dirt. Clearly no one was in charge of regularly cleaning them! What a bad first impression.
My room was small and cramped, with two very narrow beds pushed together in the center of the room. When I settled down for the night, I discovered (to my horror!) hairs on the sheets, presumably from previous guests. Ack!
For a good protion of the night, I was able to enjoy the night life of Lille without ever leaving my room. A large group of people were having loud and animated conversations by the metro stop, which is right next to the hotel. Soundproofing in general was poor; I was also fully aware of every time anybody in the next room over made the smallest movement.
the bathroom was cramped, particularly the shower cubicle. I kept hitting my elbows on the doors of the shower! No shampoo or conditioner was provided, only two soap dispensers, one in the shower and one beside the sink. The one beside the sink was empty, so I had to reach into the shower every time I washed my hands. I will not stay here again.
