We were a group of 3, visiting the region for a few days. We booked this online, the photos and several reviews were encouraging. It has secure parking on the ground level, which was important for us as we had our car. It looks very shabby from the street, and the neighbourhood looks seedy. The reception area has the character of a train station waiting room, although the staff were polite and spoke good English. We were asked to pay upfront, before seeing the room, and if we'd seen the room first we would have left immediately. We were told the hotel was very full that week, which now seems incredible. The general appearance of the hotel is run down, and it smells old. Our room was next to the elevator, which is old, noisy and runs virtually non-stop. We could hear it through the paper thin walls all night and morning. As well as every conversation in the hall and the room next door. The room has not been maintained for many years. Peeling paint, old cheap furniture, dim lighting, no tea/coffee facilities, a mouldy shower and broken cabinet drawers in the bathroom, stained carpets and a toilet so poorly designed we had to open the door in order to turn around!! Our friend had a single room - he dubbed it the flea-pit (because of it's ambiance, not because of fleas). The breakfast was OK, nothing special but adequate. The staff generally were polite and helpful when needed. There is nowhere of interest nearby, certainly nowhere to eat, so for dinner we had to travel into the centre of town about 10-15 minutes away by taxi. I would recommend this anyway, as Lille is a beautiful city. As we were intending to stay only a couple of nights, and were out of the hotel from morning to night, we decided to tough it out and not move elsewhere. But I would never go back here, and would never recommend it to anyone.
Very average, my friends were in a comfort room with fridge and tea/coffee facilities, I got nothing and paid nearly the same price. The corridor leading to the room smelt of damp, the room was ok. Thank goodness for the secure parking, it looked as rough as hell out if the window, bad enough to encourage us not to go anywhere in the evening.
Three of us on a motobike tour. Not much can be done about the hotel's location, but they could do more to make guests feel a little more at ease; It was very warm on our night and standing outside was our only option for comfort. I was told - and could see - there is a problem with ethnic groups sitting outside local stores. The hotel could do more to provide a comfortable and private outside area for guests. We we left to sit on walls and railings with a beer in hand, trying to find some fresh air. Staff here are very helpful and friendly. The place is staffed 24 hours a day. Secure parking below the hotel gives great peace of mind to those with a vehicle in this rather too far down town suburb of Lille. This is not an area I would choose to spend a romantic weekend, but it's ok for a group of friends for one or two nights. I would not recommend it for families or couples on a romantic break. I would add that women may feel a little intimidated by the location and locals. The hotel itself is typical of the type you'd expect to find in residential areas on the edge of a large city - it is rather tired and in need of an overhaul or modernisation programme. That's not a complaint, just an observation for those unsure of what to expect here. I would give a special mention to Dale, the Hotel Services staff member; he went out of his way to make us feel welcome and seems a genuinely pleasant chap.
As a stop off we booked this Hotel on our way to Germany.What can I say,this has got to have been the most awful hotel we have ever stayed in.The rooms were dingy and not very clean the toilet leeked all night soaking the carpet.From the front of the building it 's not to bad. Reception guy from Trinadad was very helpful,breakfast was ok but we did have secure parking,which is extra, but believe me in this area you need secure parking.
Spacious room and very clean and quiet. Bed was a very comfortable. The toilet door did not close, so imagine this could only be used as a single room! Parking was great. Not a particularly good area of Lille but if you just need somewhere to sleep, then this was perfect. Good value for money.
We only stayed one night en route to another location, but would never go again. The room was unbearably hot, we were afraid to open the window being on the fourth floor and having children, and one of the single beds was under the window. The stench from the drains in the shower room was overpowering and came into the bedroom even though we piled towels at the bottom of the door to try and block it off. It was hard to sleep without covering your face to avoid the smell. The room was shabby with mould in the shower, stains on the walls and ceiling, and the toilet was filthy. The appeared to be little worms, or bits of scale or something in the toilet bowl when we arrived. There is no window or extractor fan in either the shower room or the toilet. Paid €7 for secure parking, glad we did as this hotel is not in a nice area, but the spaces were tiny and difficult to get into without blocking other cars in. Looks like an old hotel that has made an effort to update in some areas but really needs gutting and starting again. Surprisingly, the beds were really comfy and the linen clean. Breakfast was simple but nice, not enough to make up for the foul smelling bedroom and other issues though.
Very average and would not stay there again. Looks better in the pictures, very dated and needs some updating, breakfast was ok and parking was extra, area of the hotel was also very poor and I don't think safe to walk about
Visited the hotel for a citybreak to Lille. On first impression the hotel looked very unsatisfactory from it's outer facade. This hotel happens to be situated in a rather rough end of town with shouting heard as night fell in the streets. The inside was slightly better however the corridors leading up to the room were dark and had large damp stains on the ceiling. The room was surprisingly spacious and had a large shower however the toilet was in a room no larger than a small closet. The room itself could have done with a more thorough clean - dark items of furniture had dust that could be written in and items from previous occupants such as dirty socks were found under the bed showing that the room probably hadn't been cleaned that well. Breakfast was the saving grace- the croissants were lovely and there was a good selection.
This place is ideal for an overnight stay on way to Austria as it is close to the motorway and not far from the channel tunnel exit. B&B is around £60 per couple with £5 for car parking. The car park is a secure one under the hotel with easy access to lifts etc. The hotel is staffed 24 hours so there is no problem arriving a bit late. Friendly staff on arrival. Rooms are basic but we were upgraded free to a comfort room which has a fridge and double bed rather than a single. Room has tea/ coffee making facilities. Shower is good with free shower gel. Breakfast is typical continental but substantial with plenty of choice. Ideal for a short stopover whilst travelling.
First impressions were good. The private car park is welcome and reception staff excellent. You do pay 7€ for use of car park per night The hotel was supposed to be in the City Centre or at least I thought it would be but in reality it's a 30 minute bus ride away from the rail station That said the bus stop is outside and it's a good service for less than 2€ The room was small, the toilet very small and separate from the bathroom which is rare these days Bed was firm but clean Bathroom was also clean Big bonus was breakfast as this was included in price and was very nice, typical French food
