Arras in detail
Place du Maréchal Foch, in front of the train station, has a number of midrange hotels.
Lots of restaurants are tucked away under the arches of the Grand' Place, place des Héros and – connecting the two – rue de la Taillerie.
Cafes and pubs can be found along rue de la Taillerie and adjacent sections of the Grand' Place and place des Héros. Lille is your best bet for nightlife.
