It’s perfectly situated – about 2 minutes walk from shops and cafes.
Our room was very clean on arrival (half an hour early) The staff are really cheerful and helpful.
We went for the ‘green’ option where you don’t have your towels washed daily and in return you’re given tokens per guest for the bar – a great deal and the Malbec and two hot chocolates went down very nicely (not all at once though). The Christmas market itself was festive and Lille was beautifully decorated.
The Metro was also near the hotel – we took it to Euralille – a huge shopping centre like Bluewater for more Christmas shopping!
Stayed with the family in mid December whilst visiting the nearby Christmas Market.
This is a small, compact hotel but contains everything you’d want from a city break residence.
Smart, well appointed rooms. Huge bathroom and a massive walk in shower. Comfy beds and pillows and everything you need for a good night’s sleep including a free mini bar.
Reception staff were very friendly and helpful although best thing in reception was a free to use photo booth which kept the kids entertained.
There is a small pleasant bar which turns into the breakfast room in the morning. We’d actually planned to go out somewhere for breakfast but as it was snowing and the small hot and cold buffet looked so nice we stayed.
At 16 Euros for adults and 8 Euros for kids it was not only very tasty but also pretty good value. We made full use of the ‘all you can eat’ instruction.
Located a short walk from the Christmas market and the main city centre shopping. If we go back to Lille anytime soon then I’d definitely be going back.

In the neighbourhood you have loads of cafes and restaurants where you can dine. The hotel is situated in the heart of Lille, so everything is reachable by foot. Which after all the delicious food is not a bad idea.

The hotel is new, elegant, with modern forniture. It is located near the city center so the location is perfect.
The bedroom was not too big, but it was very clean and it had everything we need: comfortable bed, good Wi-Fi, great bathroom and supplies (I love the idea of an open bathroom but with the toilet separated).
Breakfast is various and good (shoutout to those pancakes and bacon). You can eat breakfast until 12 p.m.

There’s a game room. Breakfast is available.
This hotel surpassed all my expectation and is a great value if looking for modern and spacious accommodations in Lille.
My Duplex apartment consisted of a large pull out couch in the living area, a dining table which accommodates 4 people, large TV, a large kitchen with full cooktop, fridge and dishwasher. There is a toilet downstairs.
Upstairs, you will find a bedroom with a king size bed, desk, another TV, full size closet and full bathroom with shower outside the bedroom. As each room is independent, you can easily share this with friends or children while retaining some privacy.
The room was very clean and contained everything you need for your stay including utensils, dishes, cookware, etc..
I just wish they provided some necessities in the kitchen like salt and pepper and paper towels. But there’s a fairly large supermarket (Intermarché) right around the corner on Rue Nationale where you can buy everything you need for your stay.
As for bakeries, there’s 2 within a 1 min walk (Papillon which is open everyday and another called Maison Landemaine which is better but not open on weekends for some weird reason)
Location is perfect, right next to Grand Place and rue de Bethune.
There’s a fitness room downstairs as well as 2 washers and 1 dryer. If you need to wash your clothes, I highly recommend a laundromat called “Eco Laverie” just 2 mins from the hotel.
They have tons of large machines and the place is spotless. Just make a left as you exit the hotel and walk past the Best Western Why hotel. The Eco Laverie is on a little place next to a Tabac on the left.
