The Grand Hotel de Roubaix is on Jean Baptiste Lebas street, just a few steps from the main square of the city. If you are in Lille, the best way to get there is to take the metro that will take you to the main square. Built in the 19th century, the Grand Hotel de Roubaix makes us think of the time when Roubaix was a very rich city. During the industrial revolution this was the French fabric capital, and all the rich industrialists who came to do business there stayed at this hotel. Next, you have the museum of art and industry, which pays homage to those times. Now the hotel is aimed at mainly at business travlers as Lille still attracts many companies, and is only 10 kilometers away.
