We originally booked the hotel for 5 nights. The hotel is in an extremely run down area, and we did not feel comfortable walking home at night (and this comes from a royal marine and police officer!) On our way home we were accustomed by two males, luckily my partner spoke french and they decided to leave us alone. The hotel looks 'tacky', they have obvously tried to make it look chic, and failed miserably. The sofa's looked like they were spray painted silver! There were two lights that not working in the bathroom. The spa and Jacuzzi looked like they were in a make shift shed!
The first room we were put in was rediculously tiny, there was hardly any room to move around the bed and nowhere to put your bag, it smelt of sewage and the window would not close properly. We complained and were moved into a larger room with chairs and a bath, this room was comfortable, but in the morning the air conditioning leaked.
It is quite a walk to the old part of lille, through a run down part of town. However, hotel staff were polite and friendly.
We checked after the first night and checked into another hotel.
