Great service and a wonderful, bright and clean room with an excellent bathroom. Nespresso coffee machine in your room. For breakfast, Freshly (really fresh) pressed orange juice, great bread, wonderful fresh French cheese, and good coffee. Very friendly helpful staff. The car park is a 7-minute walk, but along narrow streets with lots of nice shops and restaurants. You can... More

At the Esplanade, their duplex studio was booked and confirmed, well in advance, for photography shoot purposes. I thought, well, the model has been booked, the location has been confirmed, what can go wrong? Well, everything apparently. Upon arrival at the place, no recollection there of any booking. I felt like in a bad Fawlty Towers episode, "I know nothing,... More

This is probably my 4th or 5th stay here. Found the place a couple of years ago after looking everywhere for accommodation in Lille at the last minute due to some mishap. Back then the owner was telling us of the usual rhythm in Lille, packed outside Summer, quieter in July August. Well two years later l'Esplanade is not quiet... More

A very pleasant place with helpful, open staff. The locations is rather convenient, bordering the old city centre but despite that little to no noise. Coupled with comfortable facilities and a tasty breakfast, makes this a very warm recommendation!

Stayed here on our first trip away with our Baby in March. Firstly, I should say that the hotel is simply beautifully decorated - a real sight on arrival and the room we had was superb. Lots of traditional features but decorated in a tasteful, modern way. The location is also excellent, close to Vieux Lille and the lovely park... More

A beautiful building very well presented. Our room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Denis was a good host and was helpful in making a dinner reservation for us. The breakfast was plentiful and very nice. The location was a bit out of town but only a 10 minute walk so not a problem.
