Located in a converted 18th-century townhouse, Clarance Hotel is a stylish boutique hotel that’s a brief stroll away from the sights, shops, and eateries of Lille’s old town. Arrive through a discrete courtyard entrance to find an interior that’s airy and elegant, combining 18th-century classical touches with a modern style and comforts. Each of the 19 rooms is individually decorated, but they all include an excerpt from the poetry of Baudelaire (the owner is a passionate devotee).
The hotel is also home to La Table, a Michelin-starred restaurant that serves a seasonal menu featuring seafood. You can also take advantage of the classic library or schedule an in-room massage.
