“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2012

This hotel is located in a great location. It is a fair walk from the train station but you can always take the bus if necessary. Lots of nice restaurants in the immediate area, lovely atmosphere and safe area.

Hotel itself is nice, small lift to bring you up with your bags and good sized rooms. Good bathroom facilities with good water pressure, comfortable beds, decent pillows and internet access. Can get loud if you have a room facing the square during the summer months.

This hotel is on the pedestrian area on a square in the middle of town. I think you can drive down to the hotel to unload, but then you have to find parking in one of the nearby pay parking lots. We were there at Christmas time and had a room facing the square and overlooking the Christmas market, which was pretty cool with all its lights. The Market closed at 8pm so noise was not an issue. The hotel is up one floor above the restaurant. We had booked two rooms, one with a queen-size bed and one with two twins. When we got there we found that the two twin beds were pushed together like a king-size bed and could not be pulled apart. For our travel companions, this was not a suitable arrangement as it was going to be like sharing a bed. We asked, and received, two smaller rooms in place of the one room with twin beds without a change in total cost to us. Both substitute rooms had a double bed and were comfortable. Good size rooms for one person. Our queen-bed room had a lot of room. Everything was very clean. The TV may have had English channels of CNN and/or BBC news but I don’t really remember. No other English channels I do remember that. Breakfast was in the restaurant downstairs. It was a small setup with cereal, breads/pastries, yogurt, cheese and cold meats, jam, butter, OJ, coffee, tea. Eggs were boiled upon request and brought to your table.

Great place to stay if you want to be within walking distance of "old Luxembourg". Plenty of shop, resturants, sights. Rooms are small - showers even smaller. BUT please note that when I return with my wife I intend to stay here again. Clean, nice staff, great breakfast included, but the location was the main selling point for me.

You couldn't ask for a more central location than the Hotel Francais !
Room was ideal - a decent size , clean , comfortable , WIFI .
Crowds at the cafes in the square were not as rowdy as I would imagine they could be in the height of summer, so we had no issues with noise . Similarly on a morning - delivery vans were arriving around 07.00 hrs - so no hassle with that either.
Breakfasts- served in the cafe - were excellent .
A great base for visiting Luxembourg.

I stayed in this hotel a couple of times when I had some appointments in Luxembourg. It's a no nonsense basic hotel in a good location. I like the staff, the reception is above the restaurant where they serve a good breakfast. I also had dinner there was, so convenient to eat a good plate of food! Last few times that I stayed in Luxembourg I wanted a bit more comfort, but when I would look for something central /basic for a decent price I would go back here.

The rooms are small, but clean and reasonably decorated. Free breakfast and free wi-fi is a nice touch. The staff is very kind and and location can't be beat. The only problem is the noise. There is no AC so if you're there in the summer, you'll probably want to open the windows. If you're a light sleeper, you're guaranteed to be woken up all night by partiers yelling (one was singing Take Me Home, Country Roads) and then truckers pulling in for the next day's business. It's a shame really because the hotel is reasonably priced and otherwise ideally situated.

We stayed 2 nights in May. We were assigned rooms facing the square but asked to move to the back in case it got noisy at night. Our rooms were pleasant and comfortable. The location is wonderful right on the Place d'Armes. We did use the pay parking nearby and it is very expensive. There is no way to drive up to hotel so we transported luggage from underground garage. Once in the hotel, the location is very near all the city sights. The restaurant was great for dinner and nicely decorated. Breakfasts were very good, breads, meats, cheese, jams, juices, etc. If you're looking for a central hotel, this one is very nice and friendly staff.
