First, the location of this hotel is perfect if you are traveling by train to Lille as it sits directly across from the station. There is also a mall with shopping and food options by the station. The metro is easily accessible, and you can walk to old town Lille in about ten minutes.
However, a couple of things about this hotel prevented an excellent stay. First, the air conditioning in the room did not cool down regardless of where I set the temperature. Second, despite carefully hanging a Do Not Disturb sign as provided, staff nonetheless entered the room. I found this incredibly unsettling, and it was the first such incident I have experienced in thirty years of international travel.
The reception staff were fine, but their professional enthusiasm paled in comparison to the two boutique hotels I used in Paris on this same trip. I am undecided if I would stay at this hotel again. If I do, it would be purely for the convenience of the location.
