Lens, Pas-de-calais

France - - Where To Stay -

A row of old min­ing houses has been trans­formed into a brand new 52-bed­room ho­tel fac­ing the Musée Lou­vre-lens. The tra­di­tional char­ac­ter of the homes has been main­tained by keep­ing the orig­i­nal struc­ture and au­then­tic brick fa­cades. In a nod to the town’s min­ing her­itage, black coal has been cho­sen to coat the walls. Due to open its doors in Oc­to­ber, the epi­cen­tre of the ho­tel will be a large gar­den and the dif­fer­ent guest ar­eas are con­nected by glass struc­tures for max­i­mum light. Foot­ball fans can watch lo­cal team RC Lens in ac­tion with their matches shown in the bar, in the hope it will bring tourists and lo­cals to­gether through a mu­tual love of the game. Dou­bles from €100, break­fast €15 Tel: (Fr) 6 26 28 85 87 ho­tel-lou­vre-lens.com
