Recent guest reviews

The staff and room are good for business trips. Location is right next to restaurants and near the local trains. However, their free WIFI is a complete joke seeing as my prepaid mobile is able to produce faster and higher speeds than the hotel WIFI.

For the price we paid (€45) we are really pleased. Rooms are tiny but just fine for a short stay at low cost. Also seemed clean. Very well situated by the Gare lille Flandre, even à nice view from the window. Can be a little loud as it's located right on top of 2 bars (3 brasseurs) but again, for this price in Lille it's quite good

Close to train stations and plenty of restaurants. Clean hotel, friendly staff.. Room was a little uhm bijoux, but not stuffy. Bigger beds would have been nice, but wouldn't fit in the room without feeling my to cramped. Spacious shower

Hotel was in a decent location very close to the train station and shops, this did make it quite loud during the night! The hotel itself was very basic but on the whole clean and tidy. Staff were very friendly and helpful. For the price a decent hotel but one night was enough!

Reception staff were excellent. The room was noisy throughout the night. The hotel bedroom was small but relatively comfortable. You get what you pay for the hotel was very cheap and good value but tired.

Stayed here for three night. Good location. Close to station, metro and plenty of eateries. Does what it says on the tin. Typical 3 star hotel. Easy lift or stair access. Breakfast over priced in our opinion.

I came into town close to midnight without reservation and unfortunately with heavy luggage. Since they have 24h front desk server, I found someone. I got in because it was accessible with my heavy luggage.The guy working was very nice and gave me a discount. They have a nice view on the 7th floor where they offer breakfast but you have to pay an extra 10€ for breakfast.

A clean and satisfactory quaint hotel with pleasant staff. Centrally located and a good view of the Square. The amenities were clean and the hotel warm. The noise from the Square was minimal and I imagine windows double glazed.

We had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. Even though we were on the 2nd floor with view of the station, the room was quiet. Room was small but pleasant. Reception people were eager to help you. Breakfast on the 7th floor, was extra €10 per person but outside was even more expensive.

The Hotel Balladins was a really good deal and was just the basic requirement for a one night stopover. The Hotel is about a 10 minutes walk from the main Eurostar Terminal and directly opposite Lille Flanders station. The Hotel reception is staffed 24 hours and the staff on reception were all very friendly and helpful. It is also about a 10 minutes walk to the centre of Lille and due to the locality to the main areas, the Hotel is an ideal location. The room was a decent size it was at the back so was quiet. It seems from reading other reviews the rooms at the front were much noisier. A good point is the internet connection which was very good and accessible on more than one device. There were toiletries available a hairdryer, but no compliments tray which was a great shame, and also a minus, although there is a vending machine in the reception area. This is definitely a budget hotel though but it is clean and welcoming. It is a great location, everything was within walking distance for my needs. I could probably manage a 2 night stay here and would probably stay here again, I have stayed in another budget hotel within this area and I do prefer this one. So I can definitely recommend this hotel.
