I was in Lille for a football match. I stayed at the Ibis for two nights.
Check In was efficient and polite. Except I looked up to see rooms priced at €109 per night yet I was paying €160.50 per night thru’ hotels.com. Frustrating.
Still, the location was good. And that’s it. The rest isn’t so good. The room was very small. Ok, I suppose, as it’s a city centre location, next to Flandres station and 5 mins from EuraLille station.
The elevators were cheap! Card required but seemed to have a 10 second think before moving.
There is a small bar in the lobby. Pleasant staff.
There was no safe in the room that I saw. No mini bar or amenities. A small wardrobe area in the corner, handy for overnight stuff.
Just a liquid soap that is for everything hanging in the shower. That is the shower that had a blocked drain. The tray filled up so I had to shower as quick as possible before it tipped over the lip of the tray. The hair dryer was not very good either.
Breakfast was very basic. Bread, jam and eggs you could boil if you wanted to. Atrocious toaster. It was a Kitchen Maid, too. Coffee from the machine was good. Banana and other fruit provided. But no hot food. Very basic.
As I said, location was good.
The question I always ask myself - would I stay again? The answer is No. Sorry. There were better and cheaper hotels nearby that my friends stayed in. It did the job, though, it was just poor quality and expensive for what it was.
