    Many good features but one very bad one

    by

    An appartment was an excellent choice for our trip to Lille as one of my friends came with her small daughter and having a bedroom and sitting room arrangement meant that we were able to to ensure she got to bed at a reasonable time but were still able to stay up later ourselves without disturbing her. It also meant we had plenty of space and cooking facilities which is handy when travelling with children too. It worked out to be a very reasonable price for four people sharing.

    The appartment has many good features which I shall desribe, not least of which is its proximity to both train stations and to the centre of Lille, but my first impression was a poor one; the room had an overpowering smell of stale smoke. It had obviously been subjected to some fairly intensive, closed-window smoking by its occupants over the years, which had left its evidence on the soft furnishings, especially the bed blankets. Other than this, and the mouldy used filter paper in the coffee machine, the appartment, its furniture and equipment and bathroom were extremely clean and well maintained. The bathroom has a hand held shower and towels, soap and shampoo were supplied. The heating and air conditioning units can be easily adjusted in each room.

    The well equipped kitchen was useful to us for snacks and drinks but could equally well have been used to prepare a proper meal. It had a good selection of pans, a chopping board and cutting knives, plenty of cutlery and crockery, including serving dishes, a microwave, two hotplates, a refrigerator and a kitchen sink with sponge, washing up liquid and tea towel. We managed easily to seat all four of us around the breakfast bar to eat together. If you are wanting to store and prepare food, a Carrefour supermarket can be found just inside the shopping centre's entrance immediately to the right as you leave the hotel

    The beds were really very comfortable, even though one was a sofa bed and had a fairly thin matress, and the blankets and covers were warm enough. Extra pillows would have been a nice addition as I think many people do prefer more than one each.

    It should be noted that the residences are not always staffed at the weekend which can make it complicated to enter when you first arrive; you need to call them for an access code to enter the building and will then have an electronic tag on the room keyring that you can use to open the main entrance door.

    There was very little noise from other guests, just an occasional door closing alongside, but on the seventh floor we found we had rather a lot of noise from the wind: the usual whistling was fine but every now and then the windows would give a tremendous alarming rattle as though they were about to fall in! We had a good view of the trains coming and going from Lille Flandres station but heard no noise from there.

    The website below is in French but you can access a leaflet containing the details in English by clicking on the link "Fiche technique de la résidence". It also has a good and very accurate video tour if you click on the link "Visite virtuelle". I also notice that small pets are permitted to stay there.

    Directions: From Lille Europe, walk through the Euralille centre, exit to Ave. Willy Brandt and the hotel entrance is just on the left. From Lille Flandres' main exit, turn right into Ave Willy Brandt, cross to the Euralille centre and head to the tower at the rear.
