Terribly filthy rooms, that my husband had to ask for a room change due to the conditions of the one appointed to him( and even the new room was small, with dirty sheets and dirty bathroom). Very rude staff also, and the highlight of his stay...the car was broken into during the night he spent there( so very coincidental how after having a not so friendly exchange with the staff when demanded a new room). And the "manager" said that they can't go over the security footage...how very convenient. And it seems to me that this is their MO when they see an opportunity
You really do need the GPS to find this location. A plus is that's near highway, just be careful not to enter Ibis Styles by mistake, as it's just next to it. The room is small, bathroom even smaller, but you get what you paid for. Overall, not excellent, but not bad either..
The Garmin GPS listed multiple matching addresses as it seems there are multiple roads with the same name in this town. Better if you locate the IBIS hotel by point of interest instead (the IBIS Style is also nearby). The road leading into the business centre has a very convoluted entry, with multiple loops required to enter the area. The hotel cannot be seen from the road.
The hotel is still being renovated when we stayed in Aug 2016, However, it's only a refurbishment of an old hotel, so don't expect the same standard as the newer Ibis Budget hotels. Seems like a new coat of paint was applied and not much else.There was the smell of paint as we entered the room. This necessitated leaving the window ajar - until the insects started coming in. There is a wire cable that prevents the window from being swung fully open (at least in the third floor room) and, while the scaffolds are still up and outside the room window, this provided a sense of security.
There is no air-conditioning, but that's normal for the Budget hotel range.
The hotel has elevators (but the interior is still waiting to be renovated).
The Wifi signal range is marginal on the third floor, especially if your room is located away from the middle of building. The free wifi worked well in the reception area though.
The door closers are old and, as a result, all the doors slam as guests enter/exit their rooms. Other than this noise, the hotel is situated in a quiet location..
The beds in the room were comfortable.
The receptionist was pleasant.
The hotel rate was good value.
We had booked this hotel as a stop over on our way to Germany after picking up car hire in Calais. It is definitely bargain basement. When checking in, we literally got grunted at, our key passed to us and (when asked) told restaurant facilities were only in the hotel around the corner. A very dark and grungy feel. The paint was hanging off the walls in the corridor. The room was basic but clean, at least. We had to switch the water supply off to the toilet after every time it was used, as it leaked into the pan and was therefore constantly filling. It wasn't the easiest place to find. We had another booking for on our way to drop the car off, but decided to re-book elsewhere, despite the room being non-refundable...
We have stayed in Premiere Classe rooms before and always found them great for what they are i.e. cheap stop overs. However we did find this one was much shabbier than others and more expensive. It did serve its purpose, but light bulbs were missing, taps loose,holes in walls and door, no plug in sink and the room was dirty and smelt horrible of cigarettes. The staff were not rude, but disinterested.
On the plus side it has own free parking and is very close to the tram line to take you Lille centre.
My sat nav didn't find the address, but found "Parc Europe"
All in all served its purpose but not very nice
