Best Lille Hotels

Lille Hotels

Set in northern France, Lille is a large, thriving city that beautifully blends ornamental Baroque architecture, cobbled market streets and glitzy modern buildings, creating an urban area that is ideal for an inspirational and endlessly intriguing European getaway. The city centre sings with the bright reds, whites and oranges of grand palaces, citadels and halls. The sprawling streets are strung with fine-dining restaurants, museums, fabulous clothing boutiques, and old-world tree-lined squares that boast a cool café culture.

Things to see

Start your sunny Lille day by strolling around the Grand Place. This vast central square showcases a unique mix of architecture, where Flemish and Baroque influences create a dazzling array of bright colours. Visit the Vielle Bourse, Lille’s old stock exchange, a grand and ornately decorated 17th century building where garlands and cherubs line the epic facade. After, walk across the square - past The Goodness, a majestic statue stood atop a mighty blue column - to Le Furet du Nord, one of the largest bookshops in Europe. Browse the endless shelves of rare and antiquarian books, before taking a tranquil stroll through the Jardin des Plantes, a large botanical garden of sweet-scented roses, opulent orangeries and delicate dahlias. As the evening draws in, head to the Place Rihour, a relaxed neighbourhood with an abundance of fine-dining restaurants, where you can enjoy a creme brulée beside the 15th century Palace Rihour.

Hotels in Lille

Immerse yourself in the splendour of Lille’s affluent architectural heritage by staying in one of the centrally located 5-star historic hotels. Set in centuries-old buildings, these hotels maintain refined interiors, where portrait-clad hallways lead to enormous rooms complete with gold-framed mirrors, king-size beds and antique writing desks. If you prefer a sleek, contemporary design, many modern 4-star high-rise hotels offer attentive service, luxurious in-house dining and elegant bar lounges. For inexpensive accommodation, 2-star hotels in Lille provide comfy, understated and centrally located rooms, complete with picturesque views across the colourful skyline.

Where to stay

Stay in central Lille for the best of the city’s modern and historic sights. Central Lille borders the old quarter - near the enticing grandiosity of Grand Place - but also puts you within walking distance of Lille’s museum and gallery district, where fine decorative paintings are offset by inspirational contemporary art. For a true taste of local Lille, stay further in the old quarter - known as Vieux Lille - where bijou clothing boutiques lead to less tourist-heavy historical relics, from tiny churches to endless tree-washed cemeteries. For an offbeat youthful holiday, stay east of the centre, near Lille’s university of modern art.

How to get to Lille

Lille is located on the Eurostar train line. Enjoy the idyllic romance of international train travel by catching a train from London St Pancras, and race through the channel tunnel and northern France’s rural fields, arriving in Lille less than 2 hours later. Travelling by plane is equally favourable, with the nearby Lille Lesquin International Airport offering regular flights to many top European destinations, including Heathrow and Gatwick. From there, hop on an affordable coach, which will see you in central Lille in 20 minutes. Once in the city, the most popular areas are connected by a reliable subway system.
