A charming hundred-year old hotel in the heart of Lille. Near railway stations, the Opera, the Grand Square, the Beaux-Arts museum and the Convention/Exhibition Centre. That's what the hotel website says and generally that's what you get.
My two night stay as a single guest in a smallish double room was OK and the hotel location in the very centre of Lille proved to be it's strongest point. The staff at the reception desk and at breakfast were attentive and friendly and the selection of food at breakfast was good. All staff spoke good English and were helpful.
The somewhat gloomy room overlooked other rooms and appeared fairly clean but when reaching for a power point to plug in my phone charger I noticed that the carpet, around the bedside table hadn't been cleaned properly so housekeeping could be improved.
Parts of the hotel will soon be ready for some refurbishment or at least some work to bring it up to modern standards. The fixtures & fittings in the shower room being a good example as everything seemed a bit tired. It wouldn't stop me staying there again in the near future however, and the guests in our party thought it very suitable for our short stay due to its location. Lots of restaurants and bars around in the immediate vicinity.
