Stayed on two separate occasions. On the first occasion my room was very disappointing. The shower water went all over the bathroom floor due to their being no slope for drainage. As this is an apart hotel there is only room servicing every few days. The breakfast area is small and can be crowded. The breakfast choice is poor. The hotel is next to the train station (Flandres) and a large shopping centre and the area is unpleasant and noisy.
On my second occasion the room was not so bad and I had a shower over the bath. It was also away from the noisy street. There is no a/c in the rooms which I found surprising being a new modern tower block. After my first stay I was inclined to cancel my second reservation and book elsewhere (there are hotels closer to the Lille-Europe train station) but as I had booked a non-refundable rated room, I would have lost my pre-payment. However, one matter in its favour, the weekend rate for a stay on a Saturday was reasonable value and included the (poor) breakfast. The rooms have a kitchenette with a fridge, microwave, kettle and crockery etc. There is an enormous Carrefour nearby for essentials.
But my overall experience prompts me to avoid Citadines in future.More
