A beautiful building very well presented. Our room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Denis was a good host and was helpful in making a dinner reservation for us. The breakfast was plentiful and very nice. The location was a bit out of town but only a 10 minute walk so not a problem.

This is lovely, recently refurbished, boutique B&B about five minutes walk from Lille centre. My room was very comfortable, modern, and spacious. The owner Denis went out of his way to help with parking and was really very helpful and accommodating. Great value place to stay.

here is an excerpt from my blog....... The rain started to come down pretty heavy after that –as we made our way to our hotel in Lille, France. Other than circling the block no less than 17 times, our arrival was uneventful. The 17 times of circling the block was due to a major lack of parking spaces. But, fortunately...

This is the ideal accommodation for a city trip to Lille. It has a great modern atmosphere with interesting art pieces around. The accommodation is comfortable and has coffee facilities in the room. The breakfast was well presented even though it was a little too compact! Free parking is available within easy walking distance to the hotel. Everything was perfect...

1. Great bathroom but could only run water for 30 seconds before drains started overflowing. 2. Same doorcode for every room means effectively everyone has the same room key. Strangers walked in on two different occasions. 3. No card facilities mean bill can only be paid in cash. What year is this? 4. Breakfast consisted of a cut up baguette...

Great place, with a very nice atmosphere and fabulous rooms! Very good service and 5 star housekeeping, the best I have ever seen. This is coming from a former hotel manager for 15 years. Tea and Nespresso coffee facilities in the room, a nice touch. Close to the centre, restaurant and shopping area. Parking can be a little tricky and...

Helpful and friendly host, well located for walking to the old town of Lille, room spotlessly clean and nicely presented. Overall place has a lot of charm and well designed. Breakfast good too. We had the duplex which is on the third floor. Lose one point for being on the third floor without a lift/bathroom being on a different floor...

Beautifully renovated B&B. Very modern while the old accents are well preserved. Very comfortable room and bed (very important for a good nights rest :-)). Bathroom was fully equipped. The owner gave us a warm welcome and several tips for our visit to Lille. Definitely worth coming back again. The only downside was the parking space. It is very hard...

I loved this place. A clean studio with a handful of suites. The owner is an architect and it has impeccable furnishings. Breakfast was fresh squeezed orange juice, beautiful pastries and robust coffee. It is in a lively section of town. The only drawback if any was we had to pay cash/check and we had even asked the gentleman prior...
