Olivarius Apart'Hotel
Ranked #4 of 13 Hotels in Villeneuve d'Ascq
Reviewed 13 September 2015

A group of us stayed for 3 nights at the olivarius during the famous "braderie" in Lille on the first weekend of September .it was stunning ....the apartment was very clean, very stylish, roomy, and had everything and more that we needed
The staff were exceptionally helpful, spoke fluent English and were pleasant at all times
The breakfast was really good, freshly made crepes, eggs, fresh juices, hams, cheeses, croissants , I could go on and on ! We ate very well...
The nearest metro was approx 15 min walk , however there are frequent buses right outside the hotel door and the metro is very easy to navigate and reasonably priced

Couldn't have been a better experience

Room Tip: These are apartments and from looking around I would guess those on the first and subsequent floors...

Pro: We stayed in appartments and the kitchenette with a dishwasher were of great help to us. The room was clean and spacious. WiFi was working fine with mobile phones but I couldn't connect my laptop.
The hotel is easily acessible by car and there is a big free parking.

Cons: Pancakes were the only hot food at breakfast (and there may be a line for them). Villeneuve d'Ascq has no attractions.

The single room was more a standard hotel room with small kitchenette than an apartment, but it served my purposes and was very comfortable. The central area was a good place to socialise in the evening and the breakfast was superb. It was a tad loud in the morning, with the sounds of breakfast coming through the door, so wouldn't be great if you wanted to sleep in. Regardless, I'd stay there again.

Room Tip: Higher levels seemed quieter.

I stayed here with my family and we were pleasantly surprised. We chose this hotel as all we wanted was a base to sleep while we travelled around France and Belgium and wanted to be able to chose to stay somewhere else while we were out. So the price was important. It served very well for this, the room was a mini apartment, very clean and functional. The breakfast was also very good, there is no evening meal. I would class this as a business hotel as it is on an industrial estate. Don't let that put you off, I would stay here again, but you definitely need your own transport if staying here.

Spent in this apart'hotel two nights, two rooms : a sitting-room and a bedroom simply furnished but comfortable and clean, a kitchinette, bathroom and toilet, very rich breakfast.
In one word : very good value, free wifi and free parking, and it was not far from Lille where was taken place the Davis Cup France-Switzerland.

Stayed 3 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment with small kitchen, 1 bathroom & separate toilet - the room has a good layout. It was very clean with a good shower. The reception staff all very welcoming ( especially Norman !). There is no restaurant in the hotel but they sell food that can be heated up in your room. We did not try this as there are lots of restaurants 5 -10 mins drive away. There is an excellent pizzeria ( called Rosso & Bianco) 5 mins drive & many dining options in the Commercial Centres 5 mins drive away. Breakfast has lots of choice but be there before 10.00 on a weekday and 10.30 on a weekend as the curtains literally close on the dot and there are no eggs! The lady is very sweet who makes fried eggs & crepes. Although she closes up they kindly leave the juices, cereals, fruit, bread etc etc so you can still have a hearty breakfast ! All in all a good stay & very convenient for the Stade Pierre Mauroy - where we went to watch the Davis Cup ! If you go to the Stade book your parking before on internet & pay Euro 9.90 instead of Euro 15.90 if you arrive without pre-paying. You can show your receipt on your phone / ipad no need to print it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up as some rooms are on the ground floor.

Although the pictures on the Olivarius website are real, they in no way reflect the state of the hotel/apartments, nor the look and feel. Most of the pictures have been manipulated with lighting to give a much nicer feeling to the spaces. Also many of the pictures of the apartments have either been flattened or stretched to distort the truth. Wider rooms, lower/higher ceilings, bigger beds, etc. This really annoys me.

The apartments are smelly (smoke), chilly and have no warmth or comfort. The whole building feels like a large youth hostel. After complaining about our apartment we we’re moved to a much larger and nicer one in the annex. But even this room felt cold and strange.

It tries to be trendy/Edgy, but it is not, just weird and cold.

It is not really in Liile, but in Villeneuve d’Asque in a large business park.

Breakfast was ok

Will not be back.
