    « Very nice stay »

    Overall it's a very nice hotel with a high standard of design and level of service. A pity that the suites are on boulevard Carnot which is a bit noisy and the space for breakfast is insufficient when the hotel is full!

    « Good stay, nice location »

    First Impression We thought the hotel was in the old city but it wasn't. It's not a bad thing especially when everything is still about 5min walk and it's slightly quieter. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and we got a really warm welcome. The rooms are on the small side but it was bright and clean Parting Impression It was a good stay overall, no drama at all and parking was really easy although you have to pay for it. Breakfast was good and it was nice to have a courtyard area on a sunny day. Being close to the historic centre also means you are able to come back a rest before heading out again. The hotel is definitely on the nicer part of the historic centre, avoiding the messier parts closer to the train station.

    « Beautiful hotel, wonderful staff - it's a gem! »

    We were lucky to stumble upon the L'abre voyageur as a central place to come and go from for the Paris Roubaix bike race. The hotel is also within walking distance of everything in Lille. Our room was beautiful, quiet and large. The staff were incredible - at your service 24/7 and really friendly. The food, wine and atmosphere of the restaurant was amazing. As was the restaurant staff, in particular, Marilyn, the sommelier, who took the time to help us with tasting some wonderful wines. We fell in love with Lille and a lot of that was due to the warm and wonderful stay at the centrally located L'Abre Voyageur hotel. This hotel - and the staff - are one of a kind.

    « Fantastic hotel and people working there »

    We stayed at the hotel for 3 night, had great time - very central location, very comfy beds and delicious food in the hotel restaurants. Free snacks and soft drinks in the minibar. Free chocolates for Easter! Lovely deco and stylish furniture. Would definitely stay again and would recommend to everybody. Great for families. Fantastic cocktails! Very reasonably priced! Loved it!!!

    « A perfect central hotel »

    We were enormously impressed by this hotel. Everything was perfect. Its location could not have been more convenient (within a few minutes' walk to all the city's main attractions) and its staff were incredibly friendly and helpful - even going out of their way to send me back a bag I had forgotten at the hotel on departure! The rooms were clean, bright, quiet and well-designed, with everything you could want and great attention to detail. Modern and yet very comfortable. We had interconnecting rooms 46 and 47 which were perfect for our family. The breakfast was also good. We would definitely stay here again.

    « Modern and querky - we loved it! »

    We wanted to have a quick look at Lille on the way to the tunnel so booked a 1 night stop. We usually go for 'traditional' hotels but this took our fancy and we were glad we opted for it. Rooms were small but complete and very comfortable. Staff were friendly and efficient. The decor is eclectic and we really liked it.

    « 50th Birthday Celebrations »

    I booked a surprise trip to Lille for Fiancé 50th Wow ! What a Hotel 10 minute walk from Eurostar to the Hotel and a Lovely Welcome in the stunning Foyer with a welcome drunk As I was unable to email the Hotel direct I asked if it was possible to upgrade with it being a special occasion Lilly managed to upgrade us at half price which was fine . The Hotel room was large, the wet room huge The best comfiest bed we have slept in and the pillows were heavenly. There was a free mini bar with snacks & non alcoholic drinks and L'Occtaine toiletries which both were a lovely touch . We didn't get a chance to eat in either Restaurant but they both looked lovely . Location was amazing 3 min walk to Old Town and Square . Will definitely return and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

    « WHAT A LUCKY FIND »

    After looking at Trip Advisor and the Lille map chose this hotel and what a good choice it turned out to be.It is ideally situated for strolling through very attractive old town. On booking in the charming and helpful receptionist even escorted us to our room which had been upgraded from a prestige one to a suite.Everything just right - from really comfy beds, bathrobes, free safety deposit a coffee machine and even a fridge with soft drinks which were FREE.. If I was being really critical only suggestion would be a couple more hooks for hanging wet coats. Hotel give a superb full breakfast in a dining room which later sells burghers and lighter meals (All good. There is also a separate resraurant for top quality meals with some unique dishes - tried and greatly enjoyed. Would not hesitate to go back or suggest to friends

    This hotel is a few. The staff are all very welcoming and friendly and the staff we spoke to all spoke very good English. The rooms were ideal and we had breakfast both days we were there as it was really good value and there was plenty of variety. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « GOOD hotel in freezing weather »

    I stayed here from the 12th to the 14th of February 2018 with a friend. We arrived by Eurostar and the hotel is about a flat 10minute walk from the station. Walking the other way from this hotel is the old town so it's actually really well located. Once we arrived, we were shown to a twin room, we had requested a twin not being a couple and they were happy to accomodate. There are both positives and negatives to be said for the room itself. It's compact and there are not enough places to hang things like coats/scarves/bags/clothes with only one hanging door, we both had our small/mid size suitcases open and left our clothes in there. They do not provide the use of bathrobes/slippers. and the big one...The bathroom area, ok, look, maybe if you're a part of a couple it may not be a concern. There's a big walk in shower which outside of it is a sink/mirror and then behind a separate door a small toilet which my travel companion complained of being too claustrophobic every time she used it. to shield the sink/mirror/shower from the room there is a frosted door that slides over to where the toilet is (apologies, it's a bit hard to describe) If the door had been frosted entirely it probably would've been fine but it had the hotel motif etched in it which was clear so we had to ask each other to turn away whilst in the shower/getting dressed. The entire bathing area has no natural light so whilst I do understand their reasoning to a degree, I think lack of privacy trumps lack of natural light. For those of us who travel with friends or family and not necessarily as a couple, a lack of privacy is a problem, and with more people travelling this way, I think it's something hotels need to take in to consideration. For this reason alone, I would not return to this hotel. Ok, now that's been said. There were positives! The beds were comfortable, the room was clean and there were a couple of nice touches, namely the mini bar with water/juice/coke and a couple of snacks which are complementary and replenished daily. The bath products are l'occitane and there is an Apple smart tv, this allowed me to connect my iphone and watch items from Netflix etc. The staff are friendly and will do what they can do assist. We had the breakfast one of the days, it costs 16Euro pp but for us it wasn't worth it. It's very heavy on pastries/cake and it's in a very tight space and not at all easy to get around, one person can go at a time. There weren't any egg options, some cereal, cheese and salmon to go with your toast.. plus hot drinks and juice. We had been looking for a hot breakfast because at the time we visited although sunny the weather was freezing. For coffee and croissant, there's better. I can't comment on the restaurant food as although we wanted to order room service from their more casual restaurant, on the night we called they had run out of the one vegetarian option on their menu. Tripadvisor really need to add 'Good' as a rating option as I find that i'm often caught by not wanting to label something as average but I wouldn't say this hotel was VERY good. For the 2 nights we stayed, it was good.

    « Everything perfect »

    We spent 3 nights here. The room was modern and clean, lovely shower and bed was really comfortable. Complimentary expresso machine and min-bar were great.. The staff were very friendly, polite and helpful, they acknowledged you every time you passed reception. Good idea to give you a free drink if you didn't want housekeeping done every day. The breakfast was superb, everything you could think of, lots of different breads and pastries, all were excellent. This is a beautiful hotel, the best I've stayed in, the staff deserve to be complimented on their hospitality.

    « A great stay »

    A great hotel that's situated right in the heart of Lille just near to the old town. Finding it was relatively easy but it was a little bit of a pain to have to park in the nearby Opera car park which was a short walk away. I think we paid €14 for overnight parking which was reasonable. The hotel is beautiful and looks utterly brand new. The staff were incredibly welcoming and carried our bags to our room. The room was spectacular. Comfy bed, massive TV, free mini bar and a very modern look. All in all, excellent. One slight, bizarre problem was that we woke up at about 6am as we could smell smoke. We told reception staff while checking out but they did not appear to be too bothered about this... A bit odd. Anyway, I'd still recommend the hotel, we probably just had a bizarre situation at the end of our stay!

    « Delightful hotel in frightful weather »

    We stayed 3 nights in mid-December at our best ever BW stay: superb staff, modern rooms and top notch toiletries & free mini bar (latter items are non-existent if you are a US BW regular...). Breakfast was a real treat with smoked salmon, assorted breads, fresh OJ, excellent coffee and multiple other items. We didn't even peruse the hot options. Location is excellent for parking and walking to the train station. Jane is worth spending extra euros (our one dinner) but the burger bar is so-so (two dinners but we were exhausted from the initial snowy trip from Arras and, the next day, the whiteout trip of 11 hrs. to Dunkirk-sans stopping except a horrible coffee--and back to our lovely hotel). Worthy of mention, the sandwich option was unavailable on both nights, although we would have gladly settled for a fresh sandwich after the Dinkurk trip. Mentioned in previous reviews, this hotel is ideally located for tourism. We will be back in early November 2018 to visit Dunkirk and area sites from a base at this wonderful hotel.

    « Nice enough hotel »

    This is a very smart and immaculate hotel located centrally in Lille. Car parking is discounted at the adjacent car park. It is all very nice and comfortable. Breakfast is nice but we found staff to be slow to replenish items including the mandatory baguette! We did not eat dinner in the hotel.

    « Free (non-alcoholic) mini bar »

    As others have said the hotel is really conveniently located, close to Lille Eurostar and also the main tourist and shopping areas. Reception was very friendly and the guy on the desk when we checked in spoke perfect English (and French obviously) and took time to highlight local sites on a map. The roomwas a reasonable size with large flat screen tv, big double bed and l'occitaine products in the bathroom. As is not unusual in France the toilet is in its own separate room, nit the main bathrwoom area which is open plan and separated by a glass screen from the room. There is some hanging space and shelves but it is limited, not a problem for a couple of nights stay but could be an issue for anything longer. The real bonus, however, was the minibar. It is stocked with soft drinks and snacks/nibbles and these are completely free and they will re-stock each day. That was a really nice touch. Oh, and if you skip room service if staying two days or less you get a free drink at the bar. Breakfast was ok, a reasonable selection and good pastries but have had better offerings and more choice elsewhere at equivalent hotels. Would recommend as a place to stay if visiting Lille.

    « Ideal »

    Hotel is just 10 min walk from the train station. A further 10 mins takes you to the city. Room we had was slightly smaller than a Premier in but was OK. Clean and tidy with the offer of a free drink if you did not have the room serviced after the first night. We only used the restaurant for (supplied) breakfast which was a pleasant surprise with plenty of choice. Sausages and bacon looked a bit insipid, but we did not sample that part of breakfast but there was plenty of everything. The only thing i can recommend is that it does get busy (very) so an early breakfast would be advisable. The hotel could have been a little warmer as could have the room. I could not get the heating to work but was supplied with a heater when mentioned to reception. There is a car park (underground) nearby but it seemed to fill very quickly and street parking was ata premium. Overall an ideal place for a few days stay in Lille.

    Very nice hotel located just at the border of the Old town. Very convenient to discover the city by foot. The hotel has 2 restaurants, nice and clean rooms, staff polite and helpful. they hav a room with a small terrasse that you may want to ask for when booking (number 10)

    « Will be coming back »

    Excellent accommodation, with helpful and polite staff, from check in to check out. The room was very clean with modern decor and details, the extra amenities a very welcome surprise (complimentary mini-bar), quality bathroom products, with breakfast being a good range and plentiful. Located so close to the city centre, the Grand Place is within a few minutes walk, it's a great base to experience Lille.

    « Great location helps with enjoyable stay »

    Long weekend and our first trip to Lille. Warm welcome at reception and most of the staff were friendly and helpful throughout. Hotel is no more than 10 minutes walk from the train station and close to where the Christmas market is sited. The old town is easily walkable and indeed central Lille is easily accessible from the hotel. We ate in the burger restaurant on the first night. Food was good and service prompt and with a smile. Breakfast also provided plentiful opportunity to fuel up for the day ahead. Our room was on a busy road yet no great noise at night. The complimentary minbar supplies (no alcohol) were a nice touch and replenished daily. Only a couple of minor gripes; would have been good to have ?standard' tea and coffee in the room and it was frustrating that efforts to buy a sandwich at the shop forming part of the hotel seemed to be thwarted at every turn. Overall, however, an enjoyable stay and certainly worth considering again.

    « Great hotel, perfect location and wonderful staff »

    Great hotel, fab location and wonderful staff ...this hotel is lovely, we stayed with a young baby to visit Lille and we were not disappointed. Room was comfortable and the shower large, pillows feather (lovely) duvet synthetic- though some may prefer I wasn't keen. Mini bar as some have mentioned, yes complementary. The staff couldn't do enough for you and were so very helpful and kind. We ate breakfast just once at the hotel during our two night stay. Bread good, coffee terrible. Ambiance great. Only thing it's let down on, is the lack of public seating areas...there is just one I believe that isn't outside and it's a bit small and not exactly somewhere you can just sit and while away the hours. However, if I am ever to return to Lille I will book this hotel. Don't hesitate- book the hotel

    « Christmas market »

    Went to Lille for the Christmas market. The hotel was near everything. Booked the suite which was big enough for 4. They have complimentary soft drinks in the mini bar. The room was clean and warm. They also have 2 restaurants on site. It was so cold that we didn't want to venture out in the evening so we ate in the burger restaurant. The burgers were tasty and it was very relaxing. A great place for families to eat. Breakfast in the morning was continental buffet with a small selection of hot offerings. The breads and pastries were lovely but the hot food could have been more appetising. You made your own hot drinks from a machine. Would have preferred proper coffee. Overall we enjoyed our visit. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is very central. Would definitely stay there again if traveling to Lille

    « Number one for a reason! »

    This hotel is brilliant. Located within a couple of minutes walk of the centre of Lille and within a ten minute walk to the train station it is perfectly placed. The hotel is still very new (opened 8 months when we stayed) and they are doing a really great job. The rooms are very nice with all the expected amenities as well as a free mini bar (although no alcohol is included)! Our room was what I would call a conventional shape for a hotel so it seemed a bit small but the bathroom was bigger than your average; nonetheless it was all very nice. All that being said the best aspect of this hotel is the customer service. I have never come across such friendly or polite staff at a hotel and it was such a pleasure. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Wonderful Hotel and Staff »

    The hotel is in a great location for exploring Lille and to access the train stations. Throughout our entire visit, the hotel staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. From check in to check out, they were very inviting and we appreciated their efforts to speak English to us upon arrival even though we spoke french, it was a very nice gesture. Room was slightly larger than average french standards and very well designed for travelers. Decor and finishing are very appealing and make for a beautiful hotel. It was also nice to have a restaurant, bar, and patisserie all on site within the hotel. Highly recommend staying here if you are visiting Lille for a wonderful stay.

    « Small stylish hotel, superb location! »

    We planned to completely unwind in Lille last weekend and I chose L'Arbre Voyageur as our base. Unfortunately it didn't quite meet our expectations in that regard because there wasn't really anywhere to relax, read, chill or lounge around. Apart from our room and we didn't want to be there all day. Ok, there's a couple of tables in reception but who wants to sit in reception? There's also an outside courtyard which looked pleasant enough but was utterly useless in the rain. I have to admit I went for the wrong option this time but (obviously) that's not the hotels fault. There's no denying this is a gorgeous place to stay with a luxury feel in a fantastic location populated by the friendliest most helpful staff. A great place to come back to after a day of exploring this lovely city. There's is also a bar but that was shared with upmarket restaurant "Jane" and seemed to closed most the time we were there. However; when it was open their cocktails were very good, albeit on the expensive side. Things we liked about the hotel; As I've already said; the staff were so friendly, helpful and spoke good English, which made life much easier for us. They were happy to help with recommendations or book restaurants for dinner. When we asked about late checkout (we had an evening train back to London) they happily gave us an extra couple of hours absolutely free. The fab location is unbeatable. Just across from Grand Place and Vieux Lille (Old Town), while both Lille Europe and Lille Flanders stations are less than a 10 min walk, even with luggage. Our room (53) was a decent size, quiet, with comfortable beds, a lovely big walk in rainforest shower. A toilet separated by another wooden door. My girlfriend made sure the plush L'Occitane toiletries disappeared into the case straight away, so never got the chance to use those. The wardrobe was tiny though, so don't expect to hang a lot of clothes up. The minibar is completely free and replenished every day with soft drinks, water and snacks. We thought this was a nice touch. If you stay for two or more nights you can swap maid service for a drink at the bar, but my girlfriend wanted those toiletries and snacks in the mini-fridge. Good idea though. On Sunday morning the breakfast room was in Jane restaurant (until 11) and it was absolute chaos! We had to wait a while for a table but in all honesty staff struggled to cope. Everything ran out, we then had to wait for plates, cutlery and glasses. Patience was required here but an old couple in particular were just plain rude to the staff, absolutely no need for it. On Monday morning breakfast swapped to the burger restaurant (until 10) and couldn't have been more different, it was much more of a tranquil affair. Interestingly we weren't offered the option of eggs to order on either occasion even though they tracked us down to ask for our room number. I only knew they were an option after seeing others eating them, but I had to ask. Think the hotel could make more effort to let customers know about this, especially as their guests are paying extra for breakfast - or at least I did. Other than that the variety and quality of food was very good. Be aware that if you come for the weekend virtually nothing is open in town on Sundays, the odd coffee shop or restaurant but that's about it. And this continued into Monday morning with a lot of places still shut. But at least the Christmas market was up and running. If you plan to go out for dinner I highly recommend booking somewhere otherwise you may well struggle. We had reservations at "N'Autre Monde" which was excellent. The safari decor theme throughout could've been tacky but is actually really tastefully done, in fact we loved it and it certainly helped make this a very stylish hotel indeed. So in short, an enjoyable stay with nothing to complain about at all, a great place to stay but just not quite what we were looking for on this occasion. Iain, London

    « Excellent stay »

    Location was great close to the station and room was perfect. Very comfortable bed and the TV connects to your phone/ipad which was a bonus. Nice, modern bathroom although my one complaint was that the shower has no door and my entire bathroom ended up soaked! I had to hold the shower head too and it could have been hotter! Also, it was pretty noisy at night. There were 2 restaurants on site dependent on your budget but I chose to eat out so cannot comment on those. Breakfast, however, was excellent - eggs cooked however you like and lots of options. Also the minibar in the room was free and well stocked which was a nice touch. Would stay again.

    « Breakfast was the highlight »

    Great hotel, room a bit sparse and felt a bit office like. Comfortable bed though. Breakfast esp the bread was very good. The location is good for down town visit. At €304 per night a bit on the steep side to be honest.

    « A very nice centrally located hotel, with some charm and design flair »

    Came here for two nights on the recommendation of friends who came over for two days from London. It is a 10mins walk from the Eurostar station, 5mins to the the city's old charming town centre. This is a nice, airy, if dark in some places, well designed hotel. The staff are helpful and nice. Their formal restaurant if very good. The design is led by ethnic modernity, a bit African and a touch Asian, contemporary and retro chic. All in all a nice discovery and if in town again will stay here.

    « Enjoyable stay »

    My wife, eight year old son and I stayed here between 15-17 September. My wife and I were celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary. We stayed in a Junior Suite and were pleased with the room and our experience of the hotel in general. We arrived after 22:00 on the Friday night, having travelled to Lille by Eurostar. The journey time is approximately 1h 30 mins. The reception staff at check-in were friendly and courteous. They made us feel welcome. The two restaurants off the reception lobby were busy and lively. The lift was to the side of reception and we took this to our floor. The room was spacious, well laid out and airy. Our son was pleased with his double sofa bed. He was also pleased with the large wall mounted flat screen tv. My preference is for showers, over baths, and that is what we got. The complimentary toiletries were a nice touch. Being a Junior Suite, drinks and snacks in the fridge were included in the room cost. The windows were large affording good natural light into the room. Our room overlooked a block of shared flats/small business units? but there were no issues with privacy. I made use of the Nespresso and the coffee was good. My wife made use of the tea bags. The buffet breakfast was not included in the price, but we did have it on the Saturday morning. There was a good selection of the usual suspects ? cereals, cold meats and cheeses, pastries, breads and juices. There was also bacon and eggs cooked to your choice. My only criticism of the breakfast on the Saturday is it that was located in the smaller of the two restaurants, which was more of a café style restaurant. As such space was limited, and it was mildly irritating having to negotiate the ?traffic' when there were a lot of you choosing food. On the Sunday we got up later, and had brunch in the town. The hotel is in a great location. We didn't have much luggage and therefore walked from the train station to the hotel on the Friday night. It took us about 10-12 minutes. The town centre is then another couple of minutes beyond that. We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

    « Excellent hotel for exploring Lille »

    Cannot find fault with this amazing hotel. Friendly staff, comfortable and modern rooms, L'Occitane products in the bathrooom, complimentary (non-alcoholic) mini-bar and tray in room with coffee maker. Lovely Italian shower. Choice of two restaurants - the more upmarket Jane and the burger bar Ma Reine. Ate in Jane and I have to say it was exceptional - the pasta flamed in vodka tossed in the parmesan block topped with truffles was divine. Expensive in Jane but well worth it. Location is superb - just around the corner from the old town and very close to Lille Flanders and Lille Europe. Reception staff could not be more helpful. Would definitely recommend for a visit to Lille and would visit again just to stay here.

    We very much enjoyed staying here. The hotel was sleek but comfortable, the bathroom in our room was huge, and everything was very clean. The front desk staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed the bar staff as we used our free drinks, in exchange for not having our room made up daily. We ate at the restaurant on one of the nights of our stay and the food was delicious.

    « Nice place to stay in Lille »

    I spent four nights in this fine establishment. Hotel L'Arbre Voyageur is quite new in Lille. It is located a block away from the old, charming part of Lille. At the same time, railway stations are only minutes walk away. I stayed in De luxe Suit. It is spacious, with king side bed, large tub and rain shower. L'Ocittane amenities are of good quality. Aside from few hairs on the floor, room was clean. The bed linen is of kind suitable for hotel use, meaning easy to wash and non absorbing. In combination with duvet it made me sweat. I always question the practice of hotels worldwide to put duvets on their beds during the summer season. There are two large LCD TVs in this room with fair choice of French and Belgian TV channels plus standard CNN, BBC, DW... Coffee making machine is there as well as kettle to heat up water. A very nice touch is free mini bar. Hotel's personnel speaks good English. There are two restaurants within the hotel with good food. Public garage is next door and daily pass is available at the hotel's front desk. Hotel is very conveniently located in respect to access to major roads leading to or out of the city. Check in and check out were efficient, fast and pleasant. I certainly recommend this hotel.

    Everything is new, designed tastefully, very friendly and helpful staff. Most of the staff speaks English (not the waiter at the restaurant, so it might make it a bit difficult to order). There is a very pleasant terrace outside, breakfast was good, burgers at the restaurant also tasty. As negatives, bed was not as comfortable as we would have expected and the fact that the shower did not have a door.

    « Small Hotel packs powerful lunch »

    We actually reserved four rooms three nights each for two different families. This was a part business and part pleasure trip with kids ranging from 5 to 18 years old. This hotel had very modern rooms that have been recently renovated four months ago and include everything you need for a good night stay. The area was quiet AC work very well and was modern the beds were very comfortable and everything around the hotel was tremendously clean. The staff were very accommodating and the restaurant on site JANE was incredible. It was so good we ate three meals there. Not the cheapest of restaurants but the service and the food was that of a top restaurant. We will certainly be back.

    « Excellent brand new hotel »

    L' Arbre Voyageur is a brand new hotel just outside Virus Lille (the old city center). Service is impeccable, the rooms are modern and elegant with a twist. There are two restaurants, a bakery (!) and a coctail bar (the cocktails are excellent be it a bit pricy). There is a public car park at 30 meters. It talks just a 5 minute walk to be in the centre of the old town. Don't hesitate to book it if you're thinking of going to Lille.

    « Fantastic hotel, 5 minutes walk to old town Lille »

    At the end of our vacation, we decided to stay in Lille on the way back to the Eurotunnel. The Hotel L'Arbre Voyageur had good reviews on TripAdvisor so we went for it. We parked in the Opera car park (€14 for the night) and had a 2 minute walk to the hotel. Check in was great with Lisa obviously being proud of the hotel (newest in BW chain apparently). She walked us to our room and explained all of the gadgets etc. The room was modern, but slightly compact. It did have a Richard coffee machine (think Nespresso) which was nice. The bar (Jane) was good and the food looked good, although we didn't have any. We ate in old town which was a 5 min walk. We're already planning our return!

    « Great hotel near all interesting places of Lille »

    This hotel had just opened a few weeks when we stayed here. It is very nicely designed, great room layout and very well located, a short walk away from Lille Centre and the lively Vieux Lille. Staff is very friendly, there are two restaurants in the hotel, and many more in walking distance. Breakfast is well prepared but could be a bit improved (eg no scrambled eggs). Do make a parking reservation for the parking garage very close to the hotel, and you will be looking forward to a nice stay!

    « Loved loved loved this beautiful boutique hotel »

    This little gem of a hotel was in of the highlights of our trip. It is beautiful, well designed and über stylish. The rooms are small but well appointed. The lobby is lovely and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was delicious with items made by their in- house bakery. The location is amazing as you are right on the edge of the old town where there is fantastic shopping and wonderful restaurants. Absolutely loved the city of Lille and this hotel was wonderful.

    « I wish I could stay longer »

    in summary it´s a fantastic hotel. The staff is very friendly, well trained and very helpful. The rooms are not over decorated, very good taste in the decoration btw... and they have everything you need: a good bed, stable and quick internet connection, nice shower, the whole hotel and rooms are very clean, lots of natural light, silent and well insulated. The breakfast is rich without being too exagerated. You find all you want to eat. I needed to iron my shirt and the staff brought an ironing board and iron in less than 2 minutes. The location is really good, only a few minutes walk from the old square. There are shops, cafes and nice restaurants around. I super recommend it. :-)

    « Fantastic!! »

    We booked here after a nightmare in Bruges, we didn't know what to expect of this hotel or Lille having never been before. It couldn't have been much better to be fair. Check-in was smooth, friendly and very helpful. A nice touch was being taken to/shown the rooms. Reception were exceptional, as were all the staff members we encountered, they couldn't do enough. For those driving, the Carpark is aboput 50 metres away, secure and very reasonably priced, even without the discounted hotel parking rate. The rooms are spacious, well decorated and spotless. The beds are very comfortable. One slight downside, is the amount of light from the in-room phone and the clock underneath the TV, we do like our room nice and dark. There is an mini-bar which is complimentary, stocked with a small choice of waters/soft drinks and snacks which was a pleasant surprise. Breakfast was exceptional on 2 of our mornings, there was a very good selection, the staff were very accommodating and great with the kids. There could be a little more room to allow for busier periods, but you are never rushed. Sunday morning was a bit busy, there was a shortage in seating and unfortunately the staff struggled to keep the food selection stocked up, although if you asked, they served you at the table with a little wait. Maybe teething troubles? The restaurant is pleasant, they serve homemade burgers which are definitely worth a try. The hotel bar is also very nice, the house cocktails are nice. I would recommend the 'Boarding Pass to Tennessee' or the 'Leave me alone', but if you have sweeter tooth the 'Lemon Meringue Pie'. They also have their own bakery attached to the hotel who sell most of the bread and pastry selections you will find at breakfast. Prices are reasonable, we couldn't resist taking some home with us. The Hotel is located on the boundary of Old Lille and the more modern shopping area, the hotel is in a very good location, lots within walking distance, whether you want shopping, eating or just to admire the pleasant beauty of 'old' Lille. I could not recommend this hotel highly enough, we will be returning. A big thank you to the very helpful Riseléne (on reception) and to the rest of the staff who were all great and helped make our stay very pleasant!!

    The hotel is ideally situated and is very modern and clean. The staff are extremely helpful. I would definitely stay here again if travelling to Lille. You would find it difficult to better the hotel both in location and atmosphere.

    From the moment we arrived till the moment we left no request was too big. The hotel is spotless, tastefully decorated but what really makes this hotel is every member of staff who ALL go over and beyond to make you feel welcome. Would definitely recommend and would come back here again. Thanks.
