“Very small rooms - noisy if looking out to railroad station”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

We paid $55 euro for a room on a Saturday afternoon without breakfast. Rooms are very small if not facing the street. Good location. Easy walking distance to the old city. If you are looking for US type of hotel accommodations, no need to stop. It was clean, the desk clerks spoke English. We were just staying one night so it worked for us. Steep curvy steeps lead up to the 1st floor and higher. Very dark hallways that have motion detected lights.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the street.

Nothing fancy here. Rooms/chambers are small. Front rooms facing street are larger and more nicely appointed than rear rooms. Bathroom is very small. Had to keep door open when sitting on commode.

Beds are adequate.

Good location, across from Flandres train station in central business district. City mall is 150 yards down the street. Opera house is three blocks.

City is absolutely beautiful at Christmas. A true postcard photo.

Room Tip: Request a room on front of hotel.

for more than 100 EUro you expect some minimal standard - it did not meet these minimal standards at all (size of the room - too small, too dark.

There are better hotels - but you have to walk more because they are further away from the railway station But it may be worth the time.

The rooms are a bit depressive - not much sunlight.

Room Tip: there is not much daylight in the rooms .....

We booked this hotel from the tourist office as it appeared to be the only one in Lille which was dog friendly. The room was small, clean and basic but had no air conditioning so was more like staying in a sweat lodge. Also the TV channels did not appear to work. The hotel is however located directly opposite the train station which is its saving grace. If you just want to put your head down in basic accommodation, then fair enough, but if you are looking for anything more then it is unlikely this hotel will deliver.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2012

Booked this one last minute for a pre-Christmas long weekend with the family. Room very basic but clean. Small for 4 (2 double beds) and the shower-room even smaller. The staff member at reception was very helpful on check in but agree with the other comments about the reception staff in general, not the cheeriest but not exactly impolite either. We did not try the breakfast and the lack of bar etc is not an issue as there are café/bar/restaurants immediately below. We had a room on the first floor facing the front and the station - great for watching the world go by but imagine it would be quite noisy in the summer with the windows open. If your looking to spend time in your hotel other than sleeping I would suggest spending a bit more and going elsewhere. Location is great for access to the stations and car parks near them.

I have stayed in this hotel several times over the past five years, only overnight. As it is close to both Lille Europe and Gare Lille Flanders.I find it basic ,does the Job but only just,Staff seem to be different every time and have been friendly and indifferent.Better to avoid breakfast.

Room Tip: room facing the front

After spending an hour and a half driving round, trying to find the few Lille hotels, most were full by 8pm until we chanced upon this one. (Most small hotels are clumped round here).
It was reasonably priced, does the job, nothing special but its in a pretty central location.
The shower was the only real fault as its up high and could only be moved by adjusting the flow. We didn't try breakfast.
