This apartment is a gem. Even in the depths of winter it was light and airy, but cosy and warm at the same time. It would be ideal for a family of four, or for four adults.
The host, Jean-Michel, was friendly and welcoming. Make sure that you have a working phone with you. I was horrified to find that (despite checking in advance) global roaming did not work on my Australian phone. Fortunately I arrived at a time when Jean-Michel happened to be on the premises to let me in otherwise I'm not sure how I would have contacted him to organise remote access.
The place was perfectly quiet at night and weekends, but be prepared for (non-intrusive but loud) noise from the schoolyard behind the courtyard during school hours. I personally enjoyed the sense of activity but it may not appeal to all.
The kitchen was well-equipped. There is a bar fridge next to the oven, with a microwave located in the tall white cupboard, with all the crockery and a few condiments. Everything is spotlessly clean.
The double bed was comfortable and there was plenty of storage space. The bathroom includes a washer/dryer and (hallelujah!) there is a heated towel rail that keeps it cosy on the coldest mornings. There are plenty of towels, tea towels etc.
I had some trouble connecting to the wifi as the login didn't come up automatically on my phone, but once up and running it worked well. There is a system that apparently gives access to English-speaking video channels, but I only watched the French TV.
I had a great stay and would recommend this apartment if you are planning to spend time in Lille.
We stayed in this lovely Lille apartment for 4 nights, and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The apartment is very clean, comfortable and well appointed with everything needed for an enjoyable stay. The large windows provide a light airy atmosphere that is very welcoming.
The check in/check out process is very easy and convenient. There is parking available close by.
The location is within a very short walk to fabulous restaurants and shopping, as well of the sights of Vieux Lille.
Great place for family of four to spend a wonderful few days in Lille. Most local shops and services within 5 min walk and the old Lille and city centre only a few minutes further on foot. Apartment well appointed, recently refurbished but retains 18th century character. Comfortable for sleeping and nice base to come back to relax, eat, etc.
Comfortable apartment well situated in Lille. Nice coffee machine, comfy sofa, nice patio area, well equipped kitchen facility.
