“Stunning, Ultra modern casino hotel just outside the city centre.”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

This hotel was something of a surprise, it's an ultra modern casino hotel styled broadly on the best Vegas hotels (Wynn and City Centre). It has a great many bars and an amazing neuveax cuisine restaurant serving Michelin quality food.

Staff are friendly and polite and offer valet parking and restaurant bookings. My only criticism would be that their English was sometimes sketchy.

The rooms are very late with a separate hallway and amazing beds. The bathrooms are also very big and have fantastic amenities. The bath itself was huge and the shower amazing with a waterfall shower head.

The only slight negative would be location for the city centre, it's a 10 minute walk that's all. And of course is very convenient for the theatre and casino as thy are in the new complex.

A word of warning the casino is fairly basic by Vegas standards, but a welcome bonus.

We spent one night in Lille on our way to Reims and decided to stay in this hotel because it looked really nice on the internet. It is a 4 star, not too near the city centre, the bedrooms are GREAT, the beds are very comfy, the bathroom is enormous and very clean. We were very impressed with the room. If we hadn't been to the restaurant, perhaps we would have given this hotel a better rating. Keep away from it (the restuarant). It is literally inside the Casino, you actually need to carry your passport for breakfast, otherwise you can't get in.. It is very depressing. The service in the restaurant is also well below the standard of a 4 star hotel. If they changed the restaurant and created a different entrance, this hotel would be excellent. For now and because of this dreadful experience in the restaurant, it is just good.

Dear JojoNegrao

Thank you for taking time to post your comment on Tripavisor.

We are delighted that you enjoyed the comfort and design of our 5 stars hotel.

However, we would like to complete your description of our restaurant "La Terrasse du Parc" which has in fact two parts, one outside the Casino and one inside were you need to show your ID.
During your stay, we had a special menu for the Mother's day in the part outside. That's why we decided to serve the sunday brunch in the Casino.
Otherwise, the breakfast was served from 7 to 11 am outside the Casino.

Because your comments are important to improve our service each day, we have changed the organization for the Father's day.

We look foward welcoming you again at The Hotel Barriere Lille

Sincerely

On arrival we were told we had been upgraded to a superior room. We were amazed when we walked into the room - it was so luxurious and plush! For the price we paid via booking.com, it was a complete bargain! The bed was massive and very comfortable. There were automatic blinds and thick curtains which created a dark room so we could sleep in in the morning. The bathroom was large and there were lovely thick and warm dressing gowns provided. Lighting in the room was excellent - you could choose the brightness level you wanted. The staff were friendly and the room was spotless every time we came back from an outing - it was sometimes even tidied twice a day! The aircon was useful. Location was good - very near the centre of Lille. We came on a tourist trip but its location in the business area was fine. We were given a complimentary free glass of champagne in the casino, though did not gamble ourselves.

We loved our stay in Lille, and got engaged on Valentine's day after a meal at one of the lovely restaurants there!

The hotel, the room, the service and the breakfast are all great. Also a big plus: the huge bathtub. Great! Beautiful nicely designed rooms. Personally I missed a seating area for two to watch TV. The bed was now the most central. And maybe the option to really close up the toilet. I understand it comes with the design.

The downsides to this hotel:
- the walk to the centre is a bit far but do-able, but as we were two women, for the last part from the station to the hotel it didn't feel really safe.
- the hotel includes a casino next door. It felt a bit sad to be hounest to walk by to breakfast and see people still gambeling... Maybe they should keep it completely seperate. The great class of the hotel doesn't match the cheaper feel of a casino.

Good choice for a weekend Lille! Especially when you read the reviews of the more central hotels. Just don't go for the free drink in the casino.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room. I was really happy with our spot.

Dear Ysnan

It was a great to welcome you to Hotel Barrier Lille and we are thrilled that you enjoyed staying with us!

On your walk to the centre, the city of Lille will begin the development of the district this summer to make it more user friendly and also more secure

We are disappointed to learn that the casino does not answer your expectations and we have taken note of your feedback to improve the quietness of our breakfast.

Looking foward to having the pleasure of seeing you again soon,

Yours sincerely

We rather enjoyed the visit to Lille but hotel a bit out of main drag near Eurolille Gare, reception often invisible and link to Casino made for impersonal feel,Late breakfast food not good and not hot,so headed for old town instead.Hotel obviously needs to work on training of staff on reception and on helpfulness generally, no concierge apparently or pleasant bar area.

Room Tip: Get a good deal and ask for a high room!

This hotel is a 5 star establishment mainly because of its resort facilities, restaurants, casino, theatre and various bars.
We were 3 gentleman travellers on a short golfing holiday to north France and found Lille to be the ideal central location.
The hotel is situated close to the station and a short walk to the city centre and all of the local restaurants and bars.
The hotel breakfast is not of 5 star quality and could be improved, together with the morning service levels.
The rooms are of a good standard very clean and comfortable.
There are some reviews containing warnings of noisy Air Conditioning Units, but this did not affect any of us.
All the other hotel public areas are well presented and modern. We can recommend the Escal' 777 bar for a welcome drink before dinner.
There are deals available at various third party booking companies on the internet, we made our booking through Euro Tunnel via Booking.com for the best rate at the time.
They have a secure parking area in the basement for hotel guest and visitors only.
The service at Reception is worth a special mention, they are very polite and efficient for the 3 days we were there I did not see any more than 3 people in a queue and then only for a few minutes.
I must mention Mathilde, who was very helpful and sorted out a little difficulty that we had without any fuss.
This is a definite great place to stay should we visit Lille again in the near future, this time perhaps for shopping and sightseeing.

Room Tip: Higher floors are less noisy, we were on the 7th Floor and found it very peaceful.

Very nice 5 star hotel close to the city center, excellent staff, clean and high tech rooms and perfect sleep. Breakfast facility is fair, the sun is buning your eyes out, no shadow and no friendly restaurant staff - you might prefer getting served in your room.
This is also true that Lille is not suffering a lot from sunshine, in that case it could be cool.
Been there with the family, overall rating: it was excellent.

Room Tip: all seems to be good, you cannot even hear the elevator
