The hotel is right in the heart of Lille on top of all train stations and shops. We arrived on the Sunday and on 1st floor so could use the lift as my husband has recently had a new hip, but the next day the lift was not in use as they had workmen in which I had no email...

We stayed en route to the Alps. My expectations were low as it was a cheap hotel however as a bare minimum i would have expected a reasonable level of cleanliness. Outside our window on the fire escape were soiled mattresses. Our frie ds room smelt of drains and they were kept awake all night by a party in a...

I was really impress with this little budget hotel. It was clean and tidy and the staff were really friendly. It is close to the town centre and loads of little bars around it and the shopping centre is a few min walks from the hotel. Not just that the train station is like across the road. Free wifi and...

The hotel is right next to the railway station and 5mns from the Eurostar terminal. The rooms are small but comfortable and serve the purpose if you just want to go in for sleeping. Ideal if you need to catch an early train.

The hotel is located approximately 10 minutes walking from shopping markets and good places to dine in Lille. The rooms are a bit small however luckily our good view compensated for it, as well we spent most of the time outside. The only issue is the parking, however if you willing to park your car with a walking distance then...

Situated right outside the station and centrally placed for everything central, we enjoyed just one night here, stopping off on the way to Ypres. Room was at the rear and so was quiet. Clean if a little snug. Receptionist was extremely polite and friendly and stay was good value

Hotel Balladins is located around a 10 min walk away from Gare De Lille Europe and the Gare Lille Flandres train/metro station is opposite the hotel. If you don't fancy walking you can take the metro from Lille Europe to Lille Flandres, it is one stop. Lille centre is within reasonable walking distance from the hotel (10-20mins), so all in...
