Stayed at this hotel as a base for a short stay in Lille, part of a birthday prezzie from my wife and we were both very impressed!
Literally a ten minute stroll from the Eurostar terminal the hotel is on the Boulevard Carnot, behind the magnificent Opera House, (our first floor balcony overlooked the artistes entrance), and just off the Place du Theatre. A couple of minutes from Place de General de Gaulle and the Place Centrale around which seems the whole of Lille leisure life revolves.
At check in, the hotel had already noted it was my birthday trip and we were upgraded to a 'Priviledge' Room. Also my wife's request for a lower floor, (dislikes lifts!), was honoured.
The hotel staff are excellent, very helpful and totally professional. All areas of the hotel are spotlessly clean and our room was very well appointed, large and airy with the typical high ceilings and a beautiful balcony overlooking the rear of the Opera House. Very comfortable and tastefully decorated with modern fittings and furnitures. The lighting system is amazing.
A good sized bathroom with all mod cons. of modern design.
Breakfast was the usual French help yourself affair and very well provided with hot and cold food...plenty of everything, and taken in the very well appointed dining area. Look out for the rhinocerous and giraffe that must have been moving at a great rate to have made their way through the walls!!
This hotel makes a great base for exploring Lille as all the sites in this beautiful French city are within easy walking distance, including the modern 'Eurolille' shopping complex.
If you are having a break in Lille, this is the place to stay.
