"Pleasant hotel experience, spoilt by excessive New Years celebration"
This hotel is a modern exterior grafted onto a 17th century convent. The remnants of the cloisters surround the ground floor area of the bar and resturant and create a very pleasing effect. It's situated very conveniently to the "old town" of Lille, which is picturesque and crammed with bars/cafes and restaurants. All a max 10/15 minutes walk. The rooms were of a good size and contained everything needed. Amenities inclused a safe, free wifi a mini bar. The bed was huge and comfortable. The bathroom was tiled with a decent shower enclosed in glass preventing water escaping across the wider bathroom. Towels were of a good standard. Check in was painless and the staff were friendly and efficient. Indeed I mentioned to the reception desk that a sliding door in the wardrobe had come away from it's runners and I could see no way to get it back in. He left the desk immediately and came with me back to the room to effect repairs. The hotel breakfast (cost 19 euro) was a very typical continental style buffet, but there were sausages, bacon and scrambled egg for the "full English" devotee, which I am not. I enjoyed a good selection of bread, pastries, cheese and meats. Smoked salmon, fruit salad also available. Coffee was primarily from a machine although there were pots available to the side. Good supply of cereals and juice. So I was enjoying the hotel and the ambience until New Years Eve. The hotel had a party which we were invited to join but at 140 euro plus drinks we felt was expensive. We sorted ourselves out in the town. We returned between 12.30/12.45. The party was in full flow but i anticpated it being wound down fairly soon after our return. In fact the music did not finish until after 3.00 am. A very annoying disco type of music with a monotous (and loud) bass refrain: Thud, Thud Thud. I know that folks had paid for a party and were clearly enjoying it but equally guests had paid for a nights sleep. This did detract from my overall warm feeling about the hotel. Would I stay there again' Yes of course but not over New Year! Main reason why I have given a rating of 4 rather than 5.
"Very nice hotel in quiet location"
Very nice conversion of historic abbey. Big rooms, nice bar and restaurant area in the central atrium. Location is on the edge of town in a quiet location opposite a very nice canal basin. Its about 10-15 minutes walk into the centre of town.
"Warm, friendly and comfortable weekend escape "
From the moment we arrived the reservation desk greeted us warmly, check in was prompt and offered us information on the city centre. Our room, albeit a little tired, was quiet, comfortable and perfect for a weekend escape. The location is walking distance to the park, Old Town and all attractions. We would recommend to any one wanting a stay in Lille.
Nice luxury hotel, expensive rate, free wifi, good breakfast with several varieties, good view, hall for business meetings,3 elevators. heater is the rooms, minibar not for free. 1.8 km walk to Gare du Lille station.
"Big room, Old Hotel"
the room is very large, amenities are good, furniture is out dated. The hotel is in walking distance to restaurants. The breakfast was OK, not great but sufficient there a car park at the garden of the hotel.
