The region is listed on UNESCO’s World Heritage and the city of Lens is in full revival. The Louvre–Lens Hotel was intended to point out this distinctive identity, pretty rough times in the past opposed to gratifying present days, and a future full of hope. It was set up in a former mining village where the dwellings still inhabited at the beginning of renovation have been united. Everywhere in the hotel, references to the former mining legacy will catch your eyes : the original charcoal grey façade , the door and window frames which have been preserved, the design fireplace in the lobby to remind you of the old smelter, the garden recalling the old kitchen gardens, and the industrial style inside with black wall panels to evoke coal.


Some of the bedrooms retain the reminders of life as it was in those days with their raw brick walls. Times were rough but people in the region have always been friendly, kind, and generous. And the hotel has inherited this kindness, friendliness, and generosity. Dark colors and silky fabric set a soothing atmosphere, room perfumes are made by a local craftsman, bathtubs which are found in 8 rooms in addition to Italian showers (suitable for the disabled), rooms overlooking the garden or the museum. Everything here is made for you to enjoy the place, relax, and feel well. You’ll feel like you never want to leave.
