||Excellently located for visiting the war graves
of the Battle of Loos, this hotel provides comfort, excellent
value and convenience. Lens is worthwhile stop-off in a tour
through North-West France, with attractions in the vicinity that
merit a visit, including the battlefields, La Bassee and Lens
itself. The historic capital of the Pas-de-Calais coal-mining
basin, Lens was completely destroyed during World War I and was
rebuilt during the interwar period. Much of the city centre was
rebuilt in a particularly harmonious 'Spanish-Flemish' style.
Today the city is preparing for the arrival of the newest installation
of the Louvre Museum. To discover all that the region has to
offer, the hotel is just 3 km from the town centre and 5 km from
the train station.
