Our return visit to Mercure with a room with a walk-in shower was provided as requested. However, I think the breakfast was a bit of a rip off. When we arrived about 8.30am the food had run out and didn't seem to get replaced for which we had to pay regardless. It would be better to pay for what you ate.
From the first moment of arrival to the final moment of departure the staff at this lovely and unusual hotel were attentive and solicitous to a fault. The rooms are beautifully and sensitively renovated to allow the authenticity of their origin to combine seamlessly with attention to modern details. The atrium and bar area were also a lovely meeting point for pre-dinner drinks. Highly recommended.
First thing first, we were stunned to discover how actually close the hotel was to the Lille Europe Eurostar train station. 5 minutes at the most.
The hotel is undergoing the final refurbishment stage where accessories are added etc, but it looks great already, very modern and at the same time cozy. The reception is manned at all times, the staff are extremely efficient but non-english speaking. or maybe they do speak english there - i just didn't try english as I can speak a decent french myself.
We asked them for things like city maps, additional cutlery etc, we even requested a cork screw which they didn't have but went and fetched for us at a hotel next door.
The location is fab - 3 min away from Place de General de Gaulle and the Opera House; within a walking distance from major shopping streets.
We are definitely coming back to it if in Lille again.

Lovely place to escape to for a couple of days. No need to use metro, we could walk to all the things we wanted to see. Not all the places of interest are open everyday so you should bear that in mind when you choose which days to go.
Everyone was very helpful and friendly.

Recently stayed here and would recommend the hotel and loctaion. Within walking distance of the Eurostar and a comfortable hotel located in a quiet area within easy reach of all local facilities. Would definately stay here again if visiting Lille and would recommend it
Overall a great place to stay, clean and new. Staff were helpful and the breakfast was good until Monday morning!
Location is just away from center 150mts. Close to places to visit like parks, museums, shops and bars.
The Historical Center holds architecture and monuments dripping with the stories of Lille's past. Standing at the center of Place du General de Gaulle, The Goddess commemorates Lille's refusal to surrender to Austria in 1792. The 17th-century Lille Citadel also remains an impressive slice of history. The Palais des Beaux-Arts offers a glimpse into both the history and culture of Lille.
