Mister Bed is basic- it's really all you need, if you want somewhere to sleep, and keep clean. If you want more than that, you want a fancier place.
We got a triple room (one double bed, one single), which came with a television, and wardrobe. The bathroom had a working shower, which was kept clean - the service from the chambermaids was good (you can leave a card outside your door, if you need your room cleaning, so they don't just walk in to make your room tidy). The hotel seemed quiet - given it's location, I thought it would be busier. It's approx 15 minutes walk from the Eurostar Terminal.
You can have breakfast with your room, but we opted out, as there's so many cafe's nearby, with Cafe Leffe and L'Empire offering fantastic deals too (approx 5 euros for more than just a coffee and croissant, like some places on the Grand Place offer) - there's no evening meal option, but it isn't a problem - the hotel is situated within a shopping centre, and you can get pizza, or buffet style foods from the two eateries there (a bit like going to Pizza Hut or something).
The room was quiet, and had air conditioning.
I would definitely stay at a Mister Bed again - in fact, my only disappointment was that the Lille City one didn't have the pizza machines and DIY kitchens that some of the other hotels in the chain offer!
Unique Quality: Brilliant location - right in the centre. You're less than five minutes away from the Grand Place, and about a minute from some great restaurants and cafe's, as you head towards the main art museum (Palais des Beaux Arts de Lille). You're also about 2-3 minutes from the nearest Metro stop. Perfect for someone who wants to take in Lille, and just use the Eurostar and public transport for a holiday.
It's cheap too - it cost us 50 euros per night, for a triple room. Double rooms come cheaper. Definitely worth checking out, if you want somewhere decent to stay.
Directions: It's on the a shopping street, there's a big sign on the street, you can't miss it. I'm not sure it would suit someone driving though, as I didn't see anywhere you could park.
