As its name implies this hotel is in an old hospital dating back to the 17th century. But on the inside it has been tastefully converted into a very modern place to stay at with a nice Spa and indoor pool. Breakfast is an excellent buffet and there is a lovely bar area under a glass roof. Rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. As the hotel is just outside the centre of town, but within easy walking distance, it is in a quiet location.
We had a really nice stay here. Staff were very friendly, room was surprisingly large. The en suite was compact but well designed (just a shower in ours). The hotel did at several times have a smell of drains which I think was a problem in the local environment but leaving the window open helped. Despite it being very cold outside the rooms were warm and the air con is controllable so you can turn it off or on heat if you wish. We had breakfast one morning which again was lovely.
"Very good location, ideally situated for old town"
Brilliant location and very comfy rooms. No need to upgrade for a bigger room or a bigger bed! Parking was easy and very useful. The bars and restaurants nearby and the zoo is a good thing to do too. We did the city bus tour which we recommend too.
we booked this hotel as it was in the centre for lille big brocante so prices were much higher for weekend , as it was a 2 day event, we came back to hotel about 6 0clock for a hot drink and a beer but bar was closed all three days, we were told there was no staff!! knowing it was a busy weekend and the hotel was full what are they playing at! also I have a wheelchair and it was not easy to go to a bar because of cobbles!! I think this needs to be look at about staff seeing they charge us high rates!!
It's got everything you want for a short stay in a clean friendly environment. It's got a small reception which doubles as the breakfast room which works very well. I had a room with a balcony over looking the street which was very pleasant.
Room stuffy - A/C not efficient - too noisy to open windows. Like many hotels, smell from basins.
Taxis non-existent - metro/trams/buses quite easy to use though. Walking a pleasure in good weather.
Plenty to see - good bars and many good restaurants.
Situated just behind Opera and a few paces from Grand Place this could not be more central to visit Lille! The hotel offers an excellent buffet breakfast of both hot and cold. Bacon, sausage served with the best scrambled egg I've ever eaten! Plus cold meats and cheeses, pastries, breads, cereals, fruit, yoghurt etc etc
Our room was quite small, but adequate. Clean bathroom with shower gel available. Polite staff who spoke English better than my French! I would not hesitate to recommend!
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.
