We stayed here 2 nights on a Go Ahead Tour for the Vimy Memorial. Room 208. The carpets were filthy. The window had no screen on it. Towels were tiny. These rooms are in bad need of renovation. The Heating thermostat was broken. Poor value!

Wonderful hotel for something special - a bit of luxury. Stunning building in a central location.Very friendly and attentive staff. Room was only okay. But the food in the restaurant is excellent, and an especially sumptuous breakfast feast. One problem was the wifi which didn't seem to be working. Overall good price for a great 4* time.

Spent Easter weekend here for two nights with my husband and daughter. Firstly the pros: 1. The staff - impeccable customer service from the staff whether it be the front reception staff who were excellent (see my comments below re bathroom) or the lovely ladies at the breakfast buffet each morning. 2. The location - 5 minutes to the zoo...

Visited on a Weekend in March, couvent des minimes... Minimal is what would be more applicable. Arriving... Be on time, parking almost always full. Hotel is a former monastery converted into a 4* hotel. Rooms are clean and spacious. Food and service is another ball game. Included in our stay was a "gastronomic" Menu (for Nuns, I guess) The amuse...

Great hotel in a wonderful setting. The hotel staff were friendly, professional and efficient. We spent 2 nights in Room 308 which was modern, clean and quiet even with the window open at night - 2 good nights sleep. The fridge was perfect for storing fresh milk - we always take out own tea! The Buffet Breakfast had an excellent...

We were father mother and 23 year old daughter sharing large room with breakfast for one night. We loved Lille and would go back again, hopefully to stay again here. Breakfast was excellent and the main bed lovely. Daughter on put-me-up less comfy but OK. The old convent is beautifully restored and it is short walk to town by various...

Spent two nights here on a city trip in Lille. Perfect location, walking distance (5 min) from the citycentre. Around the corner of the bastille, great for a morning walk or if you like running. Good beds, nice breakfast. The common area is a bit nineties style, however the atrium is a wonderful piece of construction. We first got a...

Pro's: it is nearby the city center. They have a bathroom with a bathtub in it. Con's: it is a bit noisy when you stay in a room on the court side. There is no window to the outside. The bed is not that comfortable. The rooms are a bit dated. The parking was full and therefor we needed to...

We found a good deal on a website for this hotel. When we arrived we fell in love with the building. It was an interesting old building which went through a restoration process. The rooms were a little dated but the overall it was a great place to stay.

We booked the hotel sometime ago through an online booking website and on reflection, we got a very good price for a luxurious hotel. Our room was a mansarded room on the third floor but very spacious. Those rooms on the floors below us were nice that they looked out on the central cloister area. The hotel is skilfully converted...
