“Central and comfortable”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

You get what you pay for! It's close to stations and the town centre. The rooms are simple, adequate and clean. Staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast is simple and straight forward. No frills and certainly not luxurious. If you want to spend most of your time exploring it is cheap and cheerful. The rooms at the front are noisy and with no air con can be hot.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear.

Stayed for a business event. The price and value was OK and the location was very good, just near the train station.

At the entrance there was a strange smell, but the rooms were very clean and the bed was good.

Strange that you had to pay for the baggage lockers in the lobby.

Where to start, first impressions were not very good, arriving late at night the town seemed to be nice, however the next morning in daylight revealed the true colours, it was not pleasant there were many homeless people in the street pestering for money and at one point I was set upon by a very aggressive drunken gentleman who was very intimidating and forceful, the majority of this group of people were taking drugs and alcohol in the town and surrounding streets. This was a regular occurrence and without fail at 5pm they would all congregate in the same places. This stopped us leaving the hotel fearing for our safety. there was lots of graffiti and the town was generally dirty! The hotel was adequate considering the price we paid and the service was good. There was a lack of parking which wasn't very convenient, I would not go to this part of France again.

When we arrived we were exhausted and expected to have to leave our luggage and come back but, they let us into our room at 11am!!
The location of this hotel is great, very close to both train stations, on the same street as Gare Lille Flandres.
Simple room, no tea and coffee facilities and there can be a slight smell of sewage at times....
But, all in all, not bad at all for the price. You can stay in a hostel for the same price!

convenient location. room good. petit dejeuner excellent
I found the hotel good value for money as it is well located, the room was clean, there was little noise and the petit dejeuner was excellent. I would be happy to stay there again when next in Lille.

We booked this hotel due to its convenient location but I can't recommend it due to a sewer-type smell in some rooms, hallways and the elevator. Initially we were given room 107 but the smell was terrible so we requested another room. The clerk then gave us room 108 which smelled ok. This room doesn't have a good view but is quiet as it faces the back of the hotel. The rooms are clean, updated but very small.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the busy street would be very noisy at night

I really liked how centrally located this hotel was; it's a 5-minute walk from the train station and a 5-minute walk to get to the Grand Place. Check-in was super quick. The rooms are small but comfortable and very modern and clean. The bathroom was pretty sizable compared to some of the others I've seen in Europe. The wifi was sluggish in the daytime, but it stopped working around early morning—it won't really affect you unless you're a night owl like me or jet lagged. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 108 has an unsightly view of the back of the building.
