As for hotels; there’s so much to choose from in Lens. When picking a hotel there are a few different things to consider; firstly, how close do you want to be to the stadium?
If you wish to be fairly central within the city, and close to the Stade Bollaert-Delelis stadium, then there is plenty of cheap accommodation a short walk away. There are many budget options, even for less than 35 Euros per night. For this price you can expect to find a small but well-maintained room, with fresh sheets and basic amenities.
If you wish to stay in the heart of the city, but your budget can stretch a little further, then there are still plenty of cheap hotels near the football stadium. For a few Euros more, there are many boutique hotels, that provide fun décor, televisions and wifi, and restaurants that are open throughout the day.
The hotels, and other types of accommodation, also have free parking, which is great if you’ve hired a car. There are many interesting places to visit in the surrounding areas, so you can easily take a drive in between football matches!
f you’re willing to stay a little further away from the Stade Bollaert-Delelis, then you’ll find extra amenities; more space, gardens, and even swimming pools! If you’re visiting Lens in the summer, then the weather can be great, and a pool area is the perfect opportunity to top up your tan.
