Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by middle aged couple great service and value for money
Near to the old city a very nice modern hotel with really very helpful and kind staff!
Although under construction at the moment this was in no way a bother to us. We for sure will keep it in mind for a next time.

Rated 2,0 out of 5,0 by FlyingFinn Construction site and absolutely no status recognition
- I was able to check in and get a room already shortly after 11 AM which was very nice.
- The (cold) breakfast buffet was surprisingly good for a HIX hotel and for France. Plenty of variety and good quality items.
- Location was fine, in Wazemmes, a very short walk away from Place de la Republique which has a metro station. Walking distance to the Citadelle, Vieux Lille and the newer city centre.
- The hotel was basically a construction site. Work was being carried out on a Saturday also.
- Even though there was an air conditioning unit in the room with a control panel it was grossly inadequate for the July temperatures in the 27-30 degree range with thunderstorms and oppressive heat. Sleeping wasn't very easy, even though opening the window helped somewhat (but exposed one to some noise from the outside).
- The room wasn't very clean. There was some disgusting white stuff on the TV remote, I hope it wasn't what I think it was...
- Absolutely no status recognition - as a Gold member I'm used to at least getting greeted as one, usually with a drinks chit (or an offer for points). Not here. Nothing. Nada.
In short it is an okay hotel if you get an affordable rate or can't afford the Crowne Plaza at Lille Europa. Just don't expect much and you won't be disappointed.

Rated 2,0 out of 5,0 by Michiel Still under refurbishment
The hotel is under refurbishment. Which we didn't know. The lounge was very much being worked on. And because of the works the airconditioning wasn't working. And outside it was almost 30 degrees. The second day the very friendly staff member offered us a fan. All together not a very pleasant atmosphere.
