My wife and I stayed at Hotel Parc Beaux-Arts for two nights in July 2009 as part of an Inter-Rail trip through Belgium, Luxembourg and France. We booked directly with the hotel as we found this to be the most cost effective way – the summer offers on their website were superb.
I believe that this is an all suite hotel and certainly our room was ultra modern and beautifully kitted out. It was split into three parts – the small but stylish bathroom with lots of luxury toiletries, the bedroom with a big comfortable bed and the separate sitting room with a laptop with free internet access.
Breakfast was included in our room rate and was a tasty continental spread served in the lobby bar / restaurant. On our first night we were treated to a welcome drink and canapés which was a very pleasant surprise.
Luxembourg City is a small city, and the hotel is located only a few minutes on foot from the main squares, shops, bars and restaurants. We arrived by train and then took a local bus from the station about a mile or so up the main road to the bus turning circle on the outskirts of the old town. From here it was less than ten minutes walk to the hotel. On reflection, a taxi might have been a better way to get from the train station as it could only have cost a few euro and taken six or seven minutes.
Before we arrived we knew very little about Luxembourg City but by the time we were leaving we thought that it was one of the nicest cities in Europe! The scenery was spectacular and the local people were really friendly. We enjoyed walking around the stunning plateau at Boulevard Roosevelt, and then exploring the Citadel Gardens and the Grund, a tour of the Bock Casemates, shopping in the compact, pedestrianised centre and eating and drinking in the top quality open-air restaurants and bars in laid back Place Guillaume II.
We were very fortunate that our stay in Luxembourg City coincided with a bike race through the streets to celebrate the homecoming of the local cyclists who competed in the 2009 Tour de France. By pure chance our room overlooked the route and we had a prime view of the race and the fans below. If you happen to be there and would like to be part of this, ask for room 13.
