Apartment small but practical and clean, has everything in the kitchen you need to cook and mezzanine bed is actually quite spacious; we had no problems navigating the ladder! Loved the cheerful decor though the very small bathroom would put me off staying longer than the week we did. Communale washing machine downstairs was helpful and the apartment is in easy walking distance of bakeries, pubs, supermarkets etc. We also walked to Vieux Lille which is very pretty and where there was a good food market.
Dominique was a great host, spoke good English and advised us where things were and how to get around the city.
For our car the on street parking was relatively easy and the apartment close to the Autoroute so we were even able to explore Belgium, with the apartment situated in a great place to explore both countries.
Overall nice, practical apartment in a great location for a brilliant price
