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....!
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.
