The location is good: 5 minutes from the Old Town center, 3 minutes from Lille Flandres station and 7-10 minutes from Lille Europe station. Eurolines buses stop in front of Lille Europe station. Tip: if you travel by train or buy bus and you stop at Lille Europe station, look for the short way to the hotel: there is a bridge getting you to Lille Flandres station and then there are a few steps to the hotel (I asked about direction to the hotel's street, but no one was able to help, so I took a longer path on another bridge).
My room was a single, situated in an unusual part of the hotel, at the end of some very narrow steps, starting from the breakfast-room! I didn't expect much, but to my surprise the room was quite nice, large enough even for 2 persons, having lots of doors (one of a cupboard, one for the toilet and one for the bathroom = bathtub + sink). Everything was clean and the bed was comfy. There were also a fridge and coffee/tea amenities, and the bathroom was provided with a hair dryer, everything in good condition.
The area is safe and has lots of restaurants (mostly Assian) and there is also a big supermarket one minute from the hotel.
The view from the room's window... in an interior yard, but hey, who cares? You're there to visit, not to admire the city from a hotel window....!
