“Clean, Modern, Friendly, Cheap, Comfortable, Great Location - Perfect”
Reviewed 2 March 2011

We booked via Venere.com who had the best price at €50 a night (plus tax at about 90c per person per night and breakfast at €8 for a breakfast buffet on the 7th floor terrace).

The hotel was easy to find - right opposite the Lille Flanders Train Station and about 10 mins walk from Lille International. The hotel is above Les Trois Brasseurs restaurant and bar. We had a room at the front overlooking the station - despite this the room was quiet (except the odd horn or siren) and the curtains blocked out the light well.

The room was quite small but very clean and well kept with nice modern decoration. The bathroom was modern and clean with a powerful good shower. We had some issues with water temperature on the first day but reception told us they knew about the issue and were fixing it - which they did.

A good stay at a good price in a modern clean basic hotel. No facilities as such but plenty of options nearby if all you need is a comfortable nights stay. The main town centre and square are right on the doorstep and Lille is easy to walk to most sights. The Fine Art Museum is about 15 minute walk, the Grand Place about 5 and the closest Metro is across the street.

This hotel is in a great location, being opposite the Gare de Flandres and within a 10 minute walk from the Eurostar station and even closer to the massive Euralille shopping centre.

The rooms are small and fairly basic, but very clean with comfortable beds. The breakfast room on the 7th floor is very pleasant, although the lift was on the slow side.

Staff were very friendly and helpful.

This hotel is well priced for what it offers - not for honeymooners or those seeking luxury - but is good accommodation for the price. Value for money.

We stayed here on a short trip to Lille (just one night). For the price (£50 per night, room only) we thought it was really good value. The rooms are basic, but clean, and all you need for a short visit. The bathrooms look newly renovated and have a hairdryer which was a nice bonus. The receptionist was very friendly and recommended a good local restaurant. It is also very well located to the centre, old town, and big Euralille shopping centre (includes Carrefour hypermarket) if you have come to stock up on French wine/cheese etc. If you drive, you can park your car fairly cheaply at the nearby Gare de Lille carpark (20 euros for 24 hours) . If you come by train, it is right next to the station. There is also the "3 Brasseurs" pub just below which is a nice place for drinking some locally brewed beer, and fairly good food if you don't want to venture too far. All in all a good option if you're only here for a short stay and don't want to blow the budget.

I thought the hotel was good value for money but the double room that we had was VERY small and the bathroom was tiny, however it was fine as a base and was very clean. We were on the front of the hotel which was nice for people watching, the double glazing was very good and kept a majority of the noise out. . There are no English tv channels which was annoying and we found the bed quite uncomfortable.

The rooms are indeed small, but very nicely furnished. The bathroom was also basic, but had everything you needed. I think you have to consider the good value for money and the excellent location. The hotel is ideally based, just across from the trainstation (Lille Flandre) and at the start of the various shopping streets in the centre.
There was still some work being done on the hotel and there was a lot of noise when we checked in, but when we came back to the hotel later, it was done.
We did not have breakfast when we were there, so I can't tell you anything about that.
I would not consider this as a hotel for a romatic gettaway, but for a weekend out with your friends it's perfect!

Reviewed 21 December 2010

The Balladins hotel Lille is convenient for lots of things, except sleeping, if you stay at this hotel you MUST take ear plugs. Although newly reburbished the double glazing keeps out none of the noise and little of the cold, luckily the heater did work. The room & bathroom are small but functional, the welcome pack was not evident in the room as suggested in the welcome bumph, and there was no way to get a drink other than the vending machine in the foyer. The free wi fi is through a complex system of registration and lasts only 3 days then you have to re-register. I suggest you try somewhere else!!
