“WOW place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Great place, with a very nice atmosphere and fabulous rooms! Very good service and 5 star housekeeping, the best I have ever seen. This is coming from a former hotel manager for 15 years. Tea and Nespresso coffee facilities in the room, a nice touch. Close to the centre, restaurant and shopping area. Parking can be a little tricky and the stairs if you have a big heavy luggage. Definitely recommended!

Helpful and friendly host, well located for walking to the old town of Lille, room spotlessly clean and nicely presented. Overall place has a lot of charm and well designed. Breakfast good too. We had the duplex which is on the third floor. Lose one point for being on the third floor without a lift/bathroom being on a different floor to bedroom and toilet/eaves making it awkward to get around in some parts.

Beautifully renovated B&B. Very modern while the old accents are well preserved. Very comfortable room and bed (very important for a good nights rest :-)). Bathroom was fully equipped. The owner gave us a warm welcome and several tips for our visit to Lille. Definitely worth coming back again.

The only downside was the parking space. It is very hard finding a parking spot in Lille and the B&B doesn't have their own parking. In the end we've found a parking spot across the B&B on a large parking.

I loved this place. A clean studio with a handful of suites. The owner is an architect and it has impeccable furnishings. Breakfast was fresh squeezed orange juice, beautiful pastries and robust coffee. It is in a lively section of town. The only drawback if any was we had to pay cash/check and we had even asked the gentleman prior through an email. It is located right across from the water and in walking distance to the fabulous museum. Please review blog for further details and pictures.

A stunning B and B. From the moment we booked Emanuel could not have been more helpful and friendly. The building is beautifully restored with some really quirky artwork and ornaments. The room we stayed in was quite fabulous and well equipped with everything we could want. Breakfast in the amazing breakfast room was just perfect with Emanuel juicing the oranges for us. The location is really good being just a few minutes walk from the centre of Lille. Only one grips that prevented 5 stars was that the wooden floors do transmit sound and we were woken at 3.00am by a couple that clumped around for some 45 mins and so preventing us from getting back to sleep. However don't let this detract from a really special place

Excellent room, well equipped but no lift so check which floor you will be on. Staff could not be better, helpful and efficient. Lovely breakfast room. Location next to main road but noise no problem. Ten to fifteen minute walk to centre of town. Parking slightly problematic but o.k once a (free) space has been found.
Overall a very pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Top floor will not suit those who do not like stairs.

We booked L'Esplanade a few months in advance via email. The owner was really helpful as we couldnt confirm what time we would arrive he sent codes to we could let ourselves in. We had room Duplex and Beffroi which were both gorgeous totally not what we were expecting the whole place was a total surprise quirky art lining the walls. Large tvs and big comfy beds in each room, yummy buffet breakfast with fresh orange juice and bread with jams and cheese croissants yoghurts and cereals everything you want from a continental breakfast. Its centrally located so only a 10min walk to the main shopping streets.

We will be back for sure

Room Tip: Duplex is huge light and airy top floor with velux windows, Beffroi was smaller but just as nice
