The hotel isn't located centrally but it's near the Brussels-Luxembourg railway station. I was arriving by train from Germany so I had already purchased the transfer from Brussels Nord to Luxembourg. Very uncomplicated to do. Upon exiting the station, the hotel is not far at all. It's literally a block or so down the side street that borders the station. The area is great. Cafes, restaurants, and very small grocers are in the immediate area. Thus, there is no need to waste money on expensive hotel food. And being outside of the central area, the prices at these places are very reasonable. It was VERY hot and humid when we traveled in late July so we opted for the City Sight-Seeing Hop On/Off Bus to get to all of the major landmarks. The bus picks up and drops off a block from the hotel, which is very convenient. Walking into town is doable. About a 20-30 minute walk, which is a nice walk when it's not so humid.
Note: a taxi from this hotel to the a/p (BRU) will cost about 45 euro.
The staff tried to be helpful but some weren't very knowledgeable about much. I wasn't impressed with the "I don't knows" or "I'm not sure, I'm not from here" responses. Well then, find out! Customer service, right?
The rooms were very nicely updated. Clean, decent size, with comfortable bedding. The reason I'm not giving this property an above average rating is because of the fact that they turn off the AC at night, which makes it very uncomfortable considering this was a summer trip. Our window couldn't be opened because it was broken so that was another negative.
I do like the area but I'm not certain I'd stay here again. I'm a loyal Marriott guest but I'm thinking this property may be managed by another company. Might try the Marriott located centrally next time.
