Hotels Lille

Want to get to know another side to France? The Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, a stone's throw away from the UK, can be explored from Lille's Premiere Classe hotels.

Lille, the capital of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region in northern France, sits upon the Deûle River, near the country’s border with Belgium. In recent decades this industrial metropolis, whose economy was based on declining technologies, has transformed into a self-confident, commercial and cultural hub. A pretty old-town, a thriving nightlife scene and great shopping all contribute to the Lillois' pride in their reputation.

With its name having first appeared in 1066, Lille has strong historical roots. Today, with 36% of its population under 25, it is a vibrant and young city. In 2004 the city was made European Capital of Culture and City of Art and History. A triangle has been established between Paris, London and Brussels, thanks to the construction of the Eurostar, making a Premiere Classe hotel a good destination for a business trip.
