Just returned from spending 4 nights. Was a little apprehensive after reading some reviews. However, have no complaints. In fact, was pleasantly surprised. The receptionist was very pleasant, the room was clean and smelled nice, the bathroom was spotless. Everything was in good order and well-maintained. Etap is a budget chain but I have stayed in worse Travelodges. For €46/night one shouldn' t expect 5* accommodation. The basics are provided, no frills, though small bars of soap were in the bathroom. Everything worked - tv, light bulbs, shower, loo, clean shower curtain, hooks on back of door, etc. Lots of loo paper! Cleaning was excellent and clean towels provided every day. Room and bathroom not very big but perfectly adequate. Only real negative is that there is no air conditioning, so that in summer the rooms would be extremely hot but fine for April! A 10 minute walk from Gare Euralille through a park (perhaps not recommended after dark but fine during the day) or a further 5 minutes going the road route. Hotel is just around the corner from Rue du Gand with a good selection of restaurants, and a further 10 minutes walk to the centre of Lille. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel so cannot comment on that aspect. As for the ladies touting for business, we were certainly not aware of them at all and there was nothing to indicate that the area was prone to such activities. Walking around the area we certainly had no cause to feel unsafe, even walking back late at night.
