Clarance Boutique Hotel has everything you dream about

Written by Ruben Brochado

The millenary city of Lille prides itself on its heritage. Yet, few hotels have been able to encapsulate the richness of the city’s history while offering contemporary comforts. This exclusive and fashionable boutique-hotel successfully does both, exalting its past by preserving unique design features like parquet flooring, chimneys and period mirrors, while lending contemporary touches through wall-murals and furnishings.

Housed in a former hôtel particulier (or private mansion) erected in 1736 by the Count and Countess of Hespel, the 19-room property also benefits from its own garden, a fine-dining restaurant and common spaces featuring contemporary objets d’art by French and international artists.

In the heart of the Vieux Lille, the city’s charming and charismatic ‘Old Town’ and within a 10-minute walk to Méert – the patisserie, chocolate shop and tea salon that opened in 1761 (known for its luscious waffles) – and landmarks like the Grande Place and the Opéra de Lille. La Piscine, an art and industry museum, is also just 20 minutes away in Roubaix.

The Room

A poem by Baudelaire acts as the welcome message on a plaque outside each of the 19 rooms and suites, all appointed differently. Design flourishes like jeweled light fixtures, Art Deco wall-prints and long drapery were set amid a sophisticated and harmonious color palette. Large windows opened to the sound of chirping birds and the hourly ring of St. Catherine’s church bells, located just behind the garden.

The Bathroom

The midsize bathroom fit two people comfortably. However, as add-ons to the original structure, the modern bathrooms lack the historical cachet of the rest of the hotel. Mine featured an off-white pedestal sink with a spacious pullout drawer, energizing ginseng bath products by Clarins, a Bluetooth-equipped mirror that allows guests to play their own music and a walk-in rain shower.
