“Very high quality, but...”
Reviewed May 3, 2011

This hotel boasts excellent rooms (complete with a pillow menu), a good location (a nice 15-20 minute walk into town or short bus ride), and some nice amenities (gym, sauna and hammam were great, if a bit small). Everything is brand new and sparkling. The staff were also very helpful. So far so good.

As others have noted, the food in this hotel is breathtakingly expensive. I booked a special deal online that did not include breakfast. As there is really nothing in the area but government buildings, a couple of art institutions, and other hotels, if you wake up hungry you are pretty much stuck paying 20 Euro for breakfast. To be fair, it is a very good buffet. For the information of those with lighter appetites, I tried to see if I could just buy a simple coffee and croissant from the restaurant, but no. Room service is actually a bit cheaper than the breakfast buffet. Based on the comments here, I didn't dare try dinner.

My other complaints are common for so-called luxury hotels. It seems the classier the hotel, the more they try to nickel and dime you on everything. Want to stay a couple extra hours after the official check-out time? That'll cost you. Want to use WiFi in the public areas of the hotel? That'll cost you. Want to use the computer in the lobby for internet (something that is free in many other European hotels)? That'll cost you. It's irritating that one already pays quite a bit to stay in a nice place, and then is confronted with these other costs for what should really be free: a little leeway on check-out, and internet access in common areas of the hotel (at least).

All that said, it was a very nice hotel. I only wish they would get over the nickel and diming. It is the only unclassy element in an otherwise classy hotel.

Room Tip: Book online to get the best deal.

The Melia Luxembourg is a stylish hotel located about a 20 minute walk from the sights. The rooms were comfortable and clean, staff friendly, and breakfast was quite good. I thought the hotel was a great value.

Melia Luxembourg gave good hotel experience for short stay in Luxembourg. It is newly built, rooms are spacious, quiet and clean. Hotel is conveniently located between the city center and Kirchberg area, easily accessed from Luxembourg and Hahn airports. I also think that the Hahn shuttle bus drives next to the hotel as well. The city centre is within walking distance (2 km).

Public 24/7 garage is right next to hotel. Hotel discount price for 24 parking was 15€/24h. Overnight parking is around 10€ so it is not as expensive in the end.

Just do not let the Google maps to fool you - there is a valley between the city and the hotel and it is difficult, even though nice to cross by foot if weather is good. Use the JFK avenue and bridge for quick access. Buses 1, 13 and 16 stop next to hotel (300m) (philharmonie bus stop). Cost of ride is 1.5 €, pay for driver.

I confirm that the breakfast is great, sauna is small and inconveniently built (no separate showers/saunas for men and women).

The title says it all... The hotel is conveniently located in the citycentre. If very classy, good rooms, firm beds. Actually all is very nice, until you decide to have dinner.

The food is of poor quality at the cost of a Michelin-star restaurant. This really brings down the quality of the whole hotel.

The hotel is spotlessly clean with very comfortable modern rooms. I would agree with previous review about the service, overall good but some staff treat you as an inconvenience, even if you are making an effort with the language. Breakfast was good but the lunch/dinner menu was limited and in our view very pricey. WiFi available in the room but they do charge. Very good location, 20 min walk into town and very close to the main business area. Right next door to the museum of modern art which is worth a visit.

Good standard of style and clean. Bedroom was of a good standard and, generally, service was adequate to good. That said, some staff seemed too full of their self importance; yes they speak good English but you sometimes feel as though you are interfering with their work.
Breakfast was good with a wide selection. In contrast, the restaurant was overpriced for the selection on offer. However, easy access to the Grunde and Luxembourg Town. good location for the business end of Town as well.
WiFi is available (at a cost) in the main public areas but only accessible by hard-line in your room! Disconnection or the ability to check usage are 'irritations'.
Overall, stylish, modern and clean hotel that needs to look at what service it delivers for the charges applied.
