When: May 2007

Pleasant and surprisingly inexpensive landing spot. Convenient to train station and pedestrian zone. {2 stars}

Hotel-la-Paix was an easy stroll from the train station in Lille. It isn't in the pedestrian zone, but is less than a block away. So close that other transit options aren't a consideration unless you have mobility issues.

Desk staff were pleasant, unobtrusive and always ready with suggestions for dining and entertainment. There are a number of good basic restaurants near the hotel, plus many other choices in the nearby ped zone. Lille boasts some very nice food and wine stores.

The hotel claims some fame for it's art-themed rooms. I was in the 'Modigliani', and posters and prints enliven most of the sitting areas too. In this part of town you'll be unlikely to have a notable view from any room, but the interior spaces are clean, well-decorated and pleasant. The room pictures on the website are very accurate as far as my one-room experience goes. This hotel is rated two stars on their website and it ranks high in that category in my opinion. It cost under E100 in 2007.

The room was small, but well arranged and well appointed. Ample space and tabletop room for a comfortable 'picnic' from the many (many!) food shops nearby. Only caveat would be that the shower did not drain well when we first arrived, but the problem was rectified by the time we returned from exploring the nearby sights.

We didn't sample the hotel breakfast, but that was only because so many other breakfast options were available nearby on a morning stroll. I would absolutely stay here again. Not for luxury seekers, but for a clean thoughtfully appointed hotel at a good price it couldn't be any better!
