Hotel Empire
Ranked #16 of 49 Hotels in Luxembourg City
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Very nice hotel for a low budget, very handy location across the central station to make day trips and excursions, really helpful staff. The rooms are well cleaned every day, new towels every day and smiling personnel. The breakfast had satisfying variety and nice view from the big windows. You could enjoy your breakfast with quiecy and watch the Luxembourg people travelling to their jobs.

The neighbourhood is 15 min. walking distance from the quiet Luxembourg centre. It is better to live in the Gare neighbourhood where you can find super markets, bakeries, sth to eat until late at night. It' s not the best neighbourhood in Lux but nice enough and nothing to be afraid of in comparison with other European Gare neighbourhoods.

The Empire hotel is located directly across from the train station and within easy walking distance to the old city. This hotel, circa 1959, has been nicely renovated; we had a 5th floor corner room with a circular wall and panoramic view. Beds were comfortable and the room was a decent size. Breakfast was typical for a European hotel, we were not disappointed. There was some noise from the floor above in the early morning, otherwise the room was quiet.

Luxembourg is not my cup of tea.
Our room was terrible. The towels hardest, not soft, we cannot use items. The shower was smelly and old. The room hasn't safe box. The beds clean and comfortable. The carpet is unclean and stained.
The breakfast is cheap and basic. Old windows?!
BUT staff friendly.
Walked to parking few minutes from the hotel. €25 cash deposit for the parking card. The price is not bad (24 hour - €12). Oppsite the railway station and many shops.
We would not stay here again, sorry
Wireless internet working, but not fast speed.

Room Tip: *Special disability/deaf alarm system, if any fire, who and how help us?! So we are deaf, hmm *Add...

The location was very close to the rain station. It is directly across the street, you can walk 10-15min to town. Clean rooms, very friendly and helpful staff. Wifi was good, I liked the breakfast. Good little budget and good for travel :)

Conveniently located opposite Luxembourg railway station and within 15 minute walk of the City centre. I found the hotel comfortable and welcoming. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good value for money with breakfast included in the price. Being near a busy road didn't find this a major problem. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper may be a good idea to ask for a room not facing the street.

Staff were a little cool but helpful. Room was clean and simple but the shower curtain smelled. Too hot in the summer - no fan or AC. Room was not soundproof but my neighbours were fairly considerate. Road noise is a problem with the window open. Area feels safe in daylight hours but the area seems a bit dodgy at night. It's a fairly long walk to the historic centre if you don't want to use public transport, taxi or bike.
