Hotel Lille Europe
Ranked #35 of 107 Hotels in Lille
Reviewed 13 July 2014

This hotel is average as it is decent value for money and a handy location between Gare Europe and Gare Lille Flanders. However the place is basic, no tea making facilities in the room, basic room set up, no air com and simple breakfast. However if you just need someway to lay your head then it's a cheap and clean enough hotel.

Unless you want to be very close to train stations then don't bother; noisy room, no air con, room on the shabby side. I would give it 2 stars at the most. If I came back to Lille I would stay in the old town.

My family and I stayed here for the night on a trip back from the south of France and it was completely adequate - rooms were basic but clean, modern, with a TV but no tea and coffee facilities. There is a mini bar and Wifi though it's slow in the rooms and might be better in the dining room or lobby. Friendly, helpful staff and a great location for both Lille Eurostar, the town and the train station for the rest of France.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor to avoid noise of road and rail if you intend to sleep in!

I got a surprise to stay at this hotel. Its location is excellent just less than 2 minute walking from Lille Europe train station and close to Lille city center. The big shopping mall is just next door. The room might not be big and as it is close to the train station, the noise can annoy you sometime during your sleep. The bed is comfortable and the room is clean. The staffs are so nice as well. The guy at the front desk even let me use the computer to send an urgent email. Good quality, centrally located and reasonable price. I recommend for your short stay in Lille.

I've stayed here a few times through out the years, this time the longest at nearly a week. I'd say the value for what you get can't be beat. If you know what to expect, you won't be disappointed. Even though it's really light on the amenities, I really like this place and it has not disappointed me throughout the years.

What it is:
A very comfy, clean night's sleep with an available cold breakfast buffet with decent coffee, protein and carb items. Great Staff.

What it is not:
a full service hotel.

Why to pick it:
-price: internet pricing with inc. breakfast can't be beat.
-location: at the center of every transportation possibility in Lille, next to tourist/historic downtown, embedded into a really shopping mall with grocery store
-comfy: it is clean, updated, and the staff is friendly. The bathrooms appear new. The beds and billows are comfortable. The beddings appear new.

Why you might look elsewhere:
-no A/C: this is in Lille, which is very cool except for 2 months out of the year, but during those two months, you will be miserable in the upper floors of this hotel. I've stayed in June and while not hot yet, we had to keep the windows wide open, which will be problematic for some.

-no room service. Mini bar fridge is slim pickins, but like others, you just stock it with your own snacks and beverages from the grocery store downstairs. If you need some coffee or a meal, you'll need to go downstairs where there's a brioche doree right next door, or in the Euralille mall with lots of food choices. After 9pm though, you're on your own and might need to hit McDonalds a few hundred years away.

-small rooms. This hotel caters to travelers and business people that will not spend much time indoors. While equipped with in room internet, a table, chair, and flat screen TV, that's about it. There is a "lobby/lounge" on the 1st floor with a good panoramic view of the city, but that's about it. Never has been a problem for me. Comfortable and cozy.


Overall I've stayed here 4 times because I always have a pleasant stay, and hope to return in the future if I ever visit Lille again.

Room Tip: In the winter, ask for a room that faces the street since the view is scenic. Half of the rooms fac...

Many people stay here for a night or two because they need to get to the eurostar the next morning. It's true, it close to the train stations, but then Lille is small most places are pretty close and they have much higher standards.

This is the kind of hotel where the customer is considered a bit of an inconvenience. Service isn't rude per say but it's all geared towards doing the minimum they have to.

Rooms are basic and not always very clean. Many smell of smoke, there was a dodgy stain in my bedding, horrible brown stains all round the loo.

If you need wifi or Internet, go somewhere else - despite what they say, this place is notorious for basically being about 10 years behind in terms of things like Internet. On one occasion I saw about 5 people sitting on the floor of the corridor as one of them had just managed to get a brief Internet signal. There is an Ethernet cable in the rooms but that never seems to work for anybody.. I have had to go and ask them to reset the Internet every time I've been here and in 5 years it still hasn't improved.

The rooms are rarely ready before 3pm so if you get in early this isn't a great place for you.

It is 5 minutes walk to the old town of Lille which is lovely, but then why not stay in a decent hotel there? You're still 5-10mims walk from the Eurostar and many are not much more expensive but far better quality.

I come to Lille a lot with work and you can always hear an audible groan when we are told we're staying at Lille Europe. The location just isn't worth it, it continues to be a mystery how this place could have 3 stars.
