“Clean with nice breakfast”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

Empire Hotl is directly opposite the station. If, like me, you are coming in by rail the location is ideal. The tourist hop on/off bus stop is just across the road too. It's fairly quiet if you keep the window closed. The room is clean but no jug or tea & coffee. Thankfully breakfast in the restaurant was included and so is wifi which is great for an international traveller. The staff were friendly and helpful but the key was tricky to open the door... time for an upgrade to the card system.

We wanted a hotel near the train station which was perfect as only across the road. However our twin room was unclean as had a nasty smell like damp and the bathroom was disgusting with discoloured toilet and black mould around the shower and it smelt like urine was sick. Left windows open to air. Shame as beds were comfy and wifi great and receptionist very friendly they just need to hire better cleaners!

The hotel is directly across the street from the train station, so nice to not have to look around for it or be dragging luggage several blocks. The street is the busiest one in Luxembourg, lots and lots of buses speeding by (and stopping) so I can see how it could be noisy in the hotel if you wanted your window open (given that it was 13C that was not a problem), and with windows closed it was very quiet inside. I was aware when planes flew by (the airport is very close so they are quite low) but it’s not very often. The hotel itself is “better than OK” – nothing special, but nothing really lacking either. Room was pretty large, everything clean, shower worked great (tile could use grout cleaning), free wi-fi worked fine, nice large flat screen TV with over 50 stations, but none in English (they said they had CNN but I looked several times and never found it). Breakfast was good – plenty of choices of meats, cheeses, spread, good baguettes and great croissants, yogurt, juice, etc. Staff were perfectly nice and helpful.

This hotel is exactly situated in front of the train station, just cross the street. It is near the city center which can be reached easily on foot (about 15min), but there are also many buses stopping just in front of the hotel.
Then, this hotel is strategically located if you need go to train station and want to stay few nights.
Hotel staff is gentle and support you. The room was well clean as well as the bathroom.
The bad points are the floor with too old moquette, in the common parts, and the area just around the station which is not the best in the city.
Considering also that the room price is low, the overall judgment of the hotel is on the average level.

Nice hotel, very convenient. Friendly staff.
The room was clean and pretty big (we got the corner room), with windows all around.
It was pouring rain outside, so staff offered us umbrellas when we went outside.
The area around the hotel was safe, despite the proximity of the train station.
We found the city itself to be a bit dull, there was nothing to do on a Saturday night. Everything was closed. We walked in to the only open bar and it had 3 older gentlemen in it, flirting with the waitresses … that’s it. In the morning, same thing – empty streets, barely any cars, quiet. Good thing we were only there for 1 night.

We stayed here for two nights. Both nights, the noises from construction work outside woke us up a little bit too early.(5-6am) They are building something outside the railwaystation, so if you're going to stay here, and need a good nights sleep, you should check if the construction work is still going on... When it comes to the hotel, the receptionist was very helpful. The room we got was very spacious, and had a desk and a little table with two chairs. The bathroom was okay, but a little bit worn. Comfortable beds, and a lovely breakfast! All in all a good stay. We used about 15-20 minutes by foot into the center of Luxembourg city, walking through a shopping street. Very easy to get around by foot in this city, which I recommend visiting!

I really liked this hotel. The location is superb, right across from train station. In addition, you can hop on a city bus quite close. The room was spacious compared to other budget hotels I'd been in and very clean and comfortable. Our room faced the street, but I did not find it noisy. The breakfast was nice and they had bottles of beer in a cooler in the lobby, which was kind of fun. The staff was very friendly and quite eager to help us. I'd definitely stay here again.
