“Fantastic Location suite to all travelers”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

First steps out from Luxembourg train station, exactly what is told in the information when I booked online. I feel so happy because the hotel is just in front of the train station, we only need to cross the road and check in. The reception are very friendly and very helpful he answered all our questions in very detailed. The room is nice and clean. No breakfast but next door of the hotel there are coffee shop open in early morning serve various hot tea, coffee and bakery. This hotel is near to the Luxembourg icon, shopping, restaurants and tourist points. I strongly suggest you to book this hotel and enjoy your stay without worry where to find your interest of Luxemburg city.

Great location directly across street from train station. Room was clean and hotel very modern. Staff was friendly and helpful. Only downside was that it was very noisy down on street until 11pm, then it got quiet and was fine after 11. 10-15 minute walk to tourist information center where we got a pamphlet with a walking tour of the central city. 3 blocks from the hotel we ate at the Bella Napoli restaurant, delicious tortellini and pizzas. The Mobility Center at the train station helped us with bus tickets and routes to go visit the American Military Cemetery (5000+ WWII graves, including General George Patton, in a beautiful setting). That was a great -and inspiring- stop and well worth the 40-45 minutes it took to ride the bus and walk about 1/2 mile to the cemetery.

We stayed here for 4 night in May. Located right across the street from the train/bus station making it easier access for day trips out of the city. You can walk to the city centre in about 20-30mins or go to platform 1 and take the bus.

Check in and check out was fast and easy. The rooms are good size, shower only in bathroom with hairdryer. Breakfast included in price of room. When you go out daily you have to drop of your key and pick it up on the way back in. I would have preferred a key card but this was better than carry a heavy key around all day. Breakfast continental includes tea/coffee, breads, cereal, fruit, yogurt, cold cuts and cheeses.
There is a computer in the reception area that guests can use.

The Bella Naploi restaurant is a five minute walk from the hotel is recommend by locals. The food is good and prices are reasonable. The evening we were their we sat beside a couple of locals who were giving us information on places to go and places to eat. It was great.

The only downside to this hotel is there is a bus stop right in front of the hotel and many people stand right in the door way of hotel smoking making it at times very difficult to get out and you have to walk though all that smoke. Pedestrians should be more considerate and the owner should be moving these people away from the door. There is no reason for them to be blocking the door and smoking.

The Luxembourg card can be purchased at visitors information place in the city centre and I believe you can get it at the hotel also. The card is worth while if you are going to be travelling to different areas of Luxembourg or you plan on seeing all the museums in the city centre. It doesn't offer much for City. It does give you free rides on all bus/trains in Luxembourg.
I also recommend you visit The Casemates.
I would stay at this hotel again.

The location is very convenient (just opposite the railway and bus stations).
The breakfast options are very good for a 3* hotel.
The rooms are spacious.
It is a pity it is not closer to the Place d'Armes, although transport facilities are very good.

The hotel located opposite train station, bus stop in front of hotel which can go to city center. There are many restaurants and shops nearby. The hotel room is clean and spacious. Free good Wifi and breakfast provided.
For those come to hotel by car will be problem to drop off luggages in front of hotel because you are not allow to stop there. There is a 24 hours parking about 250m away. The hotel lift is small and slow(Max. 3 persons).

If convenience is your only criteria, then you can consider stay here. But if service is one of your concerns, please forget about staying unless you intend to check-out at 10 am. It's located just opposite the train station, thus it's extremely convenient. The rest of the things, such as cleanliness, breakfast, etc, are average. However, the bed is too soft and we didn't get quality sleep. AND, the service quality of the staff needs to be improved! Our stay was pleasant till the check-out day. The check-out time is 12noon, and you have someone knocking at your door at 10am, requesting to clear the bedsheets and blankets... but we are still in the room.. then at 1140am, another lady bang at your door rudely (as if you owe her lots of money), and ask you to checkout in an extremely rude tone.. this is totally not acceptable. If you need the guests to checkout at 10am, indicate it then....
