      The proximity to the city - it was a very easy walk to all museums, galleries and shopping centre of Lille

      The beds were a little hard for my liking

      The hotel building was lovely and the open plan bar/lounge was a pleasant place to relax

      There wasn't a very good selection of dishes to choose from on the dinner menu, and the food wasn't great. Breakfast was very good though.The executive rooms were spacious and comfortable but need redecorating. I would still recommend the hotel though.

      The building is beautiful and, for the Braderie weekend, quiet. The room was large and well situated within the building.

      Dining facilities were limited and, being Braderie weekend, overbooked. Perhaps we should have been warned about that. Also,in spite of advance booking through a "value for money" site, we were charged the highest room rate. I was not aware I was booking a suite, since it was called a superior ROOM! We did not need a suite and that was a waste of my money.

      Over priced, very disappointing. No air con in a room charging 150 Euros. not recommended, our room was a good size but very 'tired'. You even had to pay for the internet access in the reception area. I formed the opinion that this hotel wanted every penny from you. I would not recommend and I would not stay again.

      - most rooms do not have air-con - internet access is very expensive - room service list is short - food is not good - takes forever to get served in the bar

      The bar area is really good to relax before a night out. Room was large.

      We stayed in an upgraded "privellage" room that gets afternoon sun with no airconditioning - hardly what you call 4 star. Shower did not work properly. Breakfast well below standard for a 4 star hotel

      The design of public spaces was sentsational. Bright clean beautiful and different.

      The room was a bit tatty , dog eared , as was the bathroom. The hotel needs a refurbishment .

      Design of hotel is unusual and sympathetic to the original building. Very comfortable and well-located hotel. Breakfast was good

      Nothing in particular - restaurant didn't appeal much, but there are a lot of local alternatives

    • Family with children

      The Alliance is located in a picturesque old building inside a private courtyard on the Quay. The atrium is lovely but rooms need updating to give true value for money. It is expensive yet our (marble) bathroom had a leaky shower and room fittings were dull and dated with uncomfortable beds. With a much needed makeover this would be a lovely place to stay and would deserve its four stars. Service was good, on the whole.

      Large rooms but dull and dated with unattractive decor and poor use of space. Leaky shower in bathroom. Narrow, uncomfortable twin beds. Away from the public areas, the hotel needs a makeover. Until this happens it will not represent true value for money.

      I liked the staff in the restaurant and the overall ambience,

      I do think that the quality of the hotel has gone down from my previous visits. The room we had (401) although an 'upgrade' was 'tired'. reception was poor with only one lobby staff, which for an hotel of this status was below standard. I will not stay there again.

      The lounge area with the glass atrium very relaxing. Good food in the restaurant. The hotel being very slightly away from the centre maybe a bit quiet for some but we have stayed here before and will again in the future.
