Photos for me were deceiving. After reception area which is fine and
modern, you get into a very shabby lift. Was dreadful chemical smell on
first floor and initially in room. I could've asked for different
room,so my own fault for tolerating it, but hotel seemed full with the
Braderie being on. Carpet by bed worn and badly stained. Curtain had
small holes. Plastic toilet seat wonky, poor finishes in bathroom and
everywhere made me feel I was in bedsit land! Too many unwiped door and
window frames with black fingerprints. Jeez housekeeping! Open your
eyes! While there are interesting things to see in and around this area
and the Mercure metro is opposite the hotel, I did not feel safe here as
a female returning late at night 11/11.30pm. I wish I could be more
positive about this place as the staff really were nice, just the
Comfort Hotel chain need to invest a lot in the Lille L'Union to
make the rooms less shabby- if the other rooms were anything like mine.
Ps - remove the torn flag on the flagpole behind the hotel- it adds to
the rundown feel. Not a hotel to use if you want quick access to the
centre of Lille, but I chose because of friends in area.
Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Bar was open late- always a plus.
Onsite parking. Supermarket next door.Restaurant closed at weekends, but
was a simple, tasty Thai takeaway opposite the supermarket and other
places nearby. Kettle in room.
