Olivarius Apart'Hotel
Ranked #3 of 13 Hotels in Villeneuve d'Ascq
Reviewed 21 August 2011

Got to the hotel in the early hours of the morning. The room we stayed at had 2 bedrooms and a sofa bed. Very comfortable. Did not really get to use the kitchenette area but all the standard bits were there except for an oven.

Staff were friendly enough and breakfast was ok but nothing to write home about. Mainly croissants and cereals, coffee and juices. Not much in the way of anything hot to eat if wanted.

We booked this at the last minute and weren't sure what to expect but really liked this apart/hotel. The place appears to be built inside a warehouse with apartments on each side and a huge indoor atrium in the middle with seating, a bar, a mini food "shop" and an area used for breakfast. The apartments overlook the central atrium and also have other windows looking outside the complex. Our apartment had a separate bedroom with 2-3 beds, a toilet, a bathroom with bath and shower, and a living room which included a kitchenette and dining table. We had loads of room and enjoyed our stay here - very peaceful.

When we arrived around 18:00 we was greeted to very loud music being blasted out throughout the ground floor and reception area. When we checked into our room I wanted to check my emails so I tried to connect to the free unlimited wi-fi, after several attempts and asking fellow guests who also tried to connect "nothing" I returned to reception and asked if they were having problems the chap on the desk said no, but he would check it out, 22:30 still nothing. Following morning I asked the lady on the reception and she said she was unaware and would get it up and running within the hour, two days later "nothing". The hotel website and brochure states that free pool tables were available, but when I asked were they were I was told they had been put away for the decorating work that had took place, and would be back in place first thing in the morning, 3 days later, "no pool tables". Staff attitude throughout the hotel was terrible, don't expect service with a smile.

We arrived on the 31st July and were given the wrong room, on being given the correct room when we arrived in the main bedroom the blind was hanging off the window. The second room blind was stuck in the up position. On putting the blinds back together we settled down and tried signing onto the free wifi internet this didn't work so I reported it to the duty manger who stated he would have it up and running within the hour, this went on for our 3 night stay and never got sorted! Prior to checking out I checked the room over only to find spent underwear, cigarette packets and a old baseball cap under one of the beds! Not a good end to our summer holiday.

Hotel apartments are quite clean, good atmosphere, plenty of space, small nice kitchen. Quite good breakfast. We will come again if visiting this area in future.

This hotel never fails. Ive stayed there on numerous occasions with young children and its always exemplary. No it isnt in the middle of Lille, yes it is in the middle of a quiet business park, but then why complain after staying there when you havent done your research ? You can understand why this hotel is top of the Lille charts. My wife loves staying here for the breakfast alone, which is included, now check whether other hotels include it ? Ample parking space, 10 mins drive to Lille, or you cant take the metro 15 mins. Listen dont book anywhere else if youre not fussed about being in the middle of it all, because this apart hotel wont be beaten. I worked in the travel industry many years, this is a great bargain.

We stayed here at the peak of the recent snow season with our 3 year old twins. On arrival and throughout our stay, the english-speaking reception staff were friendly and helpful.
The second floor room we stayed in was easily accessible by lift. The room itself was a standard room but exceptional in size, with one lounge/dining area with kitchenette attached. This part of the room doubled up as a sleeping area for us with the most comfortable sofa bed we have ever slept on!
The twins took the good-sized main bedroom and between the two rooms were the bathroom and separate wc.
The apartment had ample space and masses of storage with a well equipped kitchen and tv with dvd player.
All in all, we found the room to be very well kitted out and clean, but be aware that although there is an electric hob and microwave, there is no oven in the kitchen. again, not a problem for us but this may be for other people.
Unfortunately, our telephone was out of order in the room and staff, although helpful, were unable to fix this for us during our 3 night stay. However, we were invited to use the phone in reception without charge for vital calls and we were most grateful for this.
The only downside was the noise from the hustle and bustle of the main atrium/reception area (which appeared to be quite a social meeting point) which carried quite easily to the main door of the apartment, but this died down when people dispersed around midnight and didn't really bother us.
Lille city centre is easily accessible via the Metro at 4 Cantons station and this would have been a 10 minute walk except for the snow. We were advised by staff to take the car and leave it in the station car park free of charge, which with the 2 little ones was good advice. On the Metro, one train on one line takes you pretty much into the Grand Place at Lille or to Euralille shopping centre, which was great. It felt very fast, very efficient and puts our transport systems to shame in this country!
Breakfast in the morning at the hotel was nothing to write home about, but had all the essentials and at the end of the day, it's included in the price so you may as well make use of it!
We would definitely stay at this hotel again and have already recommended it to several others as superb value for money, even if it is a bit out of town.
