“Stayed here three times and would go back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

We go to Lille quite a lot as its so easy for us to drive over to France on the Eurotunnel and then its just over an hour into the car park in the centre of Lille. 1st tip... its a paying car park. The hotel doesnt have its own car park no matter what they tell you. Although they will add the charge to your room rate and validate your praking ticket for you if you ask.
The hotel is clean and comfortable. It's a Novotel, so if you've ever stayed in one before then you will know that they are all exactly the same inside in terms of decor and fittings etc. They're good, clean and comfortable.
This one is close to Lille Centre and you can walk to all the main touristy bits of Lille in a few minutes. Ask the reception for a map, or head to Grand Place, or Vieux Lille and you'll be fine.
We last stayed here in September 2011 when we went to Lille for the Braderie (the biggest flea market in Europe). It was a fantastic location for that, just 10 seconds outside the hotel you come to the a busy Braderie area. Although parking was a problem that time as the roads in the centre were all closed off. But it was easy enough to park in Euralille area and walk the twenty mins thru the centre to the hotel.
My second tip would be that if you can afford it you should always go for the superior rooms in this, or any Novotel. They're just a bit better comfort and facilities. So you get a better nights sleep.

This was our second visit. We chose Lille because we were visiting a family grave from the First World War. Lille is quite an interesting city and we enjoyed wandering around. Although we noticed an increase in the number of homeless people- some of whom were quite aggressive when demanding money. The hotel was comfortable and most of the staff were welcoming and helpful. The food was good although we found the drinks expensive- we found a very good bar further down the road( on the third corner on the left). We would definitely stay here again. One drawback was that we were charged for a double room for one person even though the hotel had been informed that the booking had changed.

We picked this hotel because it is close to the centre of Lille, and because the publicity for the hotel led us to believe there is a car park on site. The first part is true; the second is not. The car park is a public car park for which you have to pay an additional fee (12 euros per night for us). Not only this, but it is a good 5 minute walk from the hotel entrance (not helped by the fact that the back door to the hotel was closed). Not good if you've got heavy bags, or it is raining - or both.

One night stay and I wasn't too impressed. The hotel reception looked modern and stylish, but the rooms were tired and needed renovating. The separate toilet room located in what should have been a clothes cupboard was odd and slightly depressing to be honest. The staff were good and resolved a problem we had with the room's lock by moving us to a new room with no problems. The bed was lovely and complimented by nice pillows. There was an issue at check out where I was asked to pay again (I had already pre-paid), then we were charged for breakfast when we hadn't had any and finally, when all other avenues exhausted, we had to pay the city departure tax. I don't mind the local tax but would have been upset to have to pay twice!

We travelled to Lille on Eurostar, which was comfortable and punctual. The hotel is approx. 2 miles from the station and cost 8 euros in a taxi, cheaper by Metro obviously. The hotel has recently been refurbished and is clean and tidy everywhere. The rooms are spacious, the bed comfortable and free wifi in the bedroom is handy. The only meals we had in the hotel were breakfast, which was good. Coffee or tea is brought to your table and then it is buffet style for the food which is of good quality with a large variety (including cooked brekky). The very best thing about the hotel is the location. It is near all the tourist sights and numerous bars and restaurants. The staff were all friendly and efficient.

Very pleased with the experience. Quiet, comfortable and clean rooms. Great location and close to the Les Cedres restaurant which is yummy. Couldn't have asked for more given the price. Top marks.
