On our citytrip to Lille in France we stayed in style at the Hotel Alliance Lille – Couvent Des Minimes, a four star hotel in the city centre. We evaluated a number of hotels in Lille via Booking.com and booked the Executive suite in Couvent Des Minimes
Couvent des Minimes is housed in a 17th century building, which is a nice showcase of the Flemish architecture of that time. The ground floor atrium, which houses the bar, restaurant and breakfast is very beautiful.
The suite consisted of a bedroom, studyroom and a bathroom. In the bedroom there was an LCD TV with mostly French channels. For its price (199€ via Booking.com) we thought the room could do with a little revamp so it’ll look a bit more modern. But all in all we were satisfied with the room, it was clean and quiet.
The location of the hotel is great, it’s located near a small quay and within a few minutes you’re in the heart of the city centre. The hotel features a small (paying) parking lot – a good thing as parking spaces in Lille are pretty hard to find.
