Beautifully restored hotel near Lille centre
We stayed five nights at the Couvent des Minimes recently. The former friary has been beautifully restored, creating a stunning hotel. Our standard room was spacious and very comfortable but had no view. Staff were all very helpful and courteous. We ate twice in the restaurant and the food was delicious although we did feel the bar was rather expensive, likewise the breakfasts at 19euro per person so we ate breakfast in local cafes instead. The hotel is a short walk from the centre of old Lille and well placed for sightseeing.

Hotel has potential to be excellent, building is beautiful, but a few things let it down. Our room was very comfortable but a little on the tired side, paint peeling, marks on carpet. The cleaners had clearly been in but there were old wrappers, empty shower gel bottles etc that hadn't been disposed of from previous guests. Our main gripe was the service we received at Reception. Despite being fairly sure that we had only booked a room only tariff we were told over and over by the receptionist that breakfast was indeed included. So for the two mornings that we were there we went and had breakfast only to find that on checkout we were going to be billed for it - and at an extortionate price for food which was mediocre at best. My partner complained, the receptionist was not particularly friendly and begrudgingly agreed to remove one of the days but still we ended up paying a whack of money for food we wouldn't have bothered with if we knew it wasn't included. There are so many nice restaurants in Lille we would have found somewhere else. That said, the location is fantastic, useful to have parking albeit at a cost but at least we knew the car would be safe, and the bed was very comfortable. I think next time we would probably try somewhere else though.

Very enjoyable
We enjoyed our stay very much except at the last minute we are asked to vacate our rooms by the cleaner at 10.30 when the check out tome is 12.00 (for both rooms)

Great public area - room needed upgrading
The hotel has superb public spaces and a great location to explore Lille. My main quibble is with the room - it was rather "tired" and in need of an upgrade. I just expected a higher spec. The staff were courteous and efficient. I particularly loved the excellent pianist in the bar area - it created a great ambience.
