When we arrived in lille we went from the main station to our hotel. This was very close. The hotel is in the centre of Lille. First thing we did was the check-in. The personal was kind and helpfull. When we wnt in our room it was smaller then the description, the bed was smaller (it was not a double bed!). The bed aas completely sagged. We could only tikt the windows. Because this it was very hot in the room. Lot of weird people hanging around this hotel. This also means there is a lot of noise. Thanks to the many night shop this noise is the whole night. Breakfazt was mwah. Some small croissant and variants on that. Baguette, yoghurt, bad coffee. Not the breakfast you want your day to start with. All with all terrible.
Probably the worst sleep I've had in a hotel in a long time. Had a room at front of hotel, and don't know what is on the same street but they was shouting and screaming outside until around 3am. Then there was occasional loud noise, and until the local refuse collection started at about 5am.
The room was quite small, but adequate. Unusually there was paper takeaway cups and tops provided for the in room coffee, rather than proper cups.
On a positive note, it is well situated for the train stations and central Lille.
I booked this place to be at the centre of Lille, very close to the train station, on a budget.
I was lucky to have a top floor room with double bed; although the building is old, the room had been recently decorated and was in good condition, nice view over the rooftops, and although there was some street noise at night (it was the weekend) I sleep very well in the comfortable bed.
The staff were really friendly and helpful. You can easily walk to the main shopping areas and sights.
The public areas of the hotel had a slight smell of cigarette smoke because other guests didn't obey the rules, but my room was fine.
This was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in.
First the positives- located close to the main attractions in Lille.
Negatives- the room was tiny and very dated
It was 30 degrees outside and there was no air con- this would not be such a bad thing if you could open the window. However if you open the window first you are greated by the smell of sewage and secondly you are attacked by mosquitoes.
The room was like an oven and we actually got up at 1am and moved to the nearby ibis and we did not return.
This hotel was cheap and we leaned a valuable lesson- buy cheap buy twice!
This hotel is so bad that it makes an ibis look luxurious!
- location is smack down in the center of Lille
- access to a parking structure 5 min walking distance, 15eur per day.
- the complete hotel has slight a smell of sewage
- the bed was bent in the middle
- to access the room it was necessary to go through multiple fire safety door and narrow stairs and hallways
- It was relatively clean, but in particular the seams between the bathtub and the wall were not properly cleaned.
- the carpet was dusty and so were many surfaces in the room.
- the internet was not good, not even to open an email account.
Another slight discomfort is the amount of people that gather in the street where the hotel is located trying to stop you and asking for money.
All in all, if going back to Lille would try a different hotel.
