“Terrific location for sightseeing - excellent restaurant/cafe”
Reviewed October 8, 2010

We stayed here for one night to see the sights of Luxembourg. Hotel staff are very busy but efficient and very helpful when asked. Rooms are clean, modern and small. Very good value for the price. Restaurant was excellent for breakfast and dinner. Great location on a beautiful square.

Stayed at this hotel with a friend for 2 nights in September 2010. Picked it based on location and price and reviews on Trip Advisor. Room 22, terrible view. Excellent location right on Place D’Armes. Walking distance to bus stops, shopping and plenty of restaurants. Not walking distance to the train station. The most important things to me are that the room is clean and in a good walkable location. The room was very clean and simple. Typical small room, which was fine. Bathroom was fine, but the shower was super small. I’m a small person and it was challenging even for me. If you plan to sleep during the day at all, you’ll want to bring earplugs. Staff wasn’t overly friendly, but they were fine, not rude. Breakfast was good, but not over the top. Croissants, cereal, yogurt, cheese, meat, mixed fruit, coffee, juice. Free wifi. I would stay here again.

Centrally located close to all points of interest of Luxembourg-city. Bus terminal and taxi stand are 200metres away (not in the same direction however). The hotel has a restaurant that is expensive and will not leave a lasting impression.(this is a general tendency in Luxembourg-city) But there are plenty of other places (including Pizza Hut and McDonalds) on the "place d'armes" where the hotel is located. Breakfast was good, with ham, cheese, egggs, lewerwurst, pastries, fruits, yogurths and a good selection of breads and pastries. No high gastronomy here either, though.
My room -33- was clean, neat and tidy, with an excellent bed and mattress. Despite an occasional whining sound from a ventilation device somewhere in the building I slept soundly.
In one word, this is a no frills comfortable, reasonably priced hotel I would highly recommend.

We stayed in the hotel during July and we were in midst of a heat wave (there is no air conditioning), it was during the World Cup (the party in the square/on the street went on until 0300h), we were in a room in the front of the hotel (not the room at the back that we had been promised and because of the heat we had to have the window open), there was a series of youth groups playing oom-pah-pah music for a couple of hours in the early evening at the bandstand across the street which was okay but it made it difficult to carry on a conversation while dining outside.

So, the good points were that it was very clean, the room was spartan and not very large but fine for the price, the location was in the square and close to station, restaurants, etc., the restaurant was good value for dinner (slow service with only one waiter for many tables outside but the World Cup was definitely an influence) and the breakfast was fine and while not exceptional was more than satisfactory. The staff at both the hotel and in the restaurant were very accommodating.

While the taxi was not willing to drive us to the hotel from the train station - saying it was a pedestrian area only - in fact that was not true and the taxi was able to pick us right in front of the hotel.

The stop for the hop-on-hop-off bus is not very far - head out of the hotel across the square, take the street on the left and half way down turn into the alley which points to the tourist info spot and the bus stop is across the square. It was rather a worldwind tour (more so than other hop-ons in other cities, but it did provide a good overall view of the city).

So, given all of the circumstances and the good value we received I'd give it another try.

Absolutely what you'd want from a city centre hotel. Would highly recommend. Beautifully clean throughout. Location brilliant but being in the centre there is the usual noise of city life especially on the rooms at the front and parking tricky. V friendly owner bothered to seek us out at breakfast to say hello. Kids loved the hot chocolate at breakfast best of the trip.

We loved the Hotel Francais. It is right on the Place d'Armes Square where there are many shops and restaurants. The restaurant in the hotel was wonderful. Staff was very professional and attentive. Good breakfast. We would definitely stay again.

I read about this place on this Web site and was encouraged to stay there by the location, fair price and small size of the place. They did not disappoint. Friendly staff, very clean and well laid out rooms, modern bathrooms with plenty of hot water and good water pressure. The hotel is right on one of the main squares in the old town, but is quiet at night. I would use this hotel again.
