“Great Hotel!”
Reviewed 8 September 2011

Great Hotel location, we went on the weekend of "La Braderie" perfectly placed for this, as it is a few minutes away from the bars, restaurants and shops and the start of the market (so around the hotel its quiet) and only a 5 minute walk to the "main square"

The hotel and room was good, everything you would want, clean, quite and helpful staff (that spoke English)

Parking is right next to the hotel, EFFIA parking, https://www.resaplace.com/ for the weekend it was only 24 Euros! - Which for any city center is brilliant. This was also accessible while "La Braderie" is taking place, as most of the city center streets are closed, but there is normal access to the parking, Even though it is next to the start of the market.

All in all, a good hotel. Albeit, a touch pricey on the weekend we traveled, due to La Braderie.

We stayed at this hotel during the huge Braderie de Lille (biggest flea market in Europe) and generally enjoyed our stay. First the bad parts. Wi-Fi was very poor-intermittent, A/C did not work, parking is a bit of a hike, and it was pretty expensive. The price was no doubt due to the Braderie.
Now to the good part, the front staff. They were extremely helpful, friendly, and courteous. Maybe the best of any hotel we have EVER stayed at. Francois, in particular, helped us plan our flea market experience so that we enjoyed it to the utmost. Whoever has trained these people deserves highest kudos!

The hotel itself was very good for a reasonably cheap, basic hotel. I should particularly mention the staff who were extremely helpful on the front desk.

However, the location itself was not great. If I was on my own I would have felt nervous walking back to the hotel in the evening as it was quite isolated and wasn't on the pleasantest of streets.

I would imagine it would make a very good hotel if you were there for business rather than leisure.

Great hotel. Decent size clean and modern room. Good breakfast, but could imagine it being a problem if their was a rush of guests ( we went in august and it was quite). The location is perfect for getting to from the Eurostar station, and is ideally located for getting into town. Perfect unless you are looking for a more characteful hotel experience.

Novotels don't really surprise their previous guests - rooms are always spacious and clean with everything most people will need - and this one is no different.

The hotel is close to the back entrance to the Gare Lille Flandres and about 15 minutes' walk from Euro Lille Eurostar station. We arrived on a Eurostar weekend package for 3 nights. It was good value, possibly because it was a public holiday weekend.

TIP: The quickest way to get from the Eurostar train station to the hotel is to head for the adjacent Euro Lille shopping centre, Go onto the upper floor by escalator, walk through the place and then take the exit for Gare Lille Flandres. There is a bridge over the train lines and at the far end is a wide flight of stairs down to street level. Turn left and the hotel is there.

Reception was staffed by English speaking, helpful people. Breakfast was not included in our rate and consisted of an adequate, if over-priced, buffet. They serve breakfast until 11am on weekends and holidays which is civilised.

There is free wireless internet and a terminal in the lobby.

Lots of restaurants and cafes close by.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back have a view of a large reflective glass-sided building. Front ones overlook the st...

The hotel room was nice the price was great but it was infested with bedbugs and or mites. I am sure of this because we stayed at no other hotels during this trip and I noticed the first bites on my finger two days later.

We are still fighting this problem after several visits to the doctor, use of strong chemical cremes and countless loads of laundry. I have written to Novotel to please take care of this so other travelers do not suffer the same fate as we did. The bites are horrible.

It's sad because otherwise the hotel is very nice.

If a short shopping trip to Lille is on your to do list, then this hotel definitely can be the perfect solution for your stay. It's conviniently located next to EUROLILLE shopping centre (connected via a direct bridge), and next door to Lille-Flandres Station, with 5 min walk to Eurostars Station. The proximity to the shopping streets (the centre) is 10min, so just enough to save your feet from a lot of walking. Don't expect luxury, but do except covering of basic necessity: comfortable bed, working shower, free wi-fi, cafe next to the reception. In terms of shopping variety, I woudn't say that there is a great choice, so this was a miscalculation on my behalf, but the city is charming and quiet, so perfect for a short city break.
