A 50th birthday surprise – review of novotel luxembourg centre, luxembourg city, luxembourg – tripadvisor z gas guatemala


We spent four nights in this hotel which is in easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and rail station and a simple bus ride from the Airport. It is a pleasant modern hotel with all the usual Novotel touches and enjoys a very high standard of cleanliness and service. Because we were there for my wife’s birthday I upgraded our room to a suite on the fourth floor at a small additional charge The room was large and sparklingly clean with a bath/shower and superb towels etc. The buffet breakfast was excellent, with a good range of items to choose from. We had dinner a couple of nights and they were very well presented from a good menu. The real plus for this hotel are the staff who went out of their way to ensure that our stay was extremely enjoyable. We would like to especially mention Cloe on the front desk who gave us so much information on what to do and where to go in Luxembourg. She also organised a surprise ‘happy birthday’ greeting with some other members of staff for my wife. There is no doubt that the staff make this hotel!

I have done a lot of research before booking as we travel with big luggages, we do not want to carry them too far or pay for taxi to get to the hotel. Price also comes into consideration. This hotel is not super close to the Luxembourg Central Station but requires around 8-10 miniutes walk. There is a small exit durectly from the train station but as first timer it will not be easy to see as there is no sign to point out. The hotel is just right in the back of Sofitel so basically it is upto your preference in hotel name and service. We stay here for 2 nights so we just need average price with fairly good quality and space in which Novotel meets the needs. It is not right in the city center. If you want to stay in the city center, hotels are usually about 1.5km from the train station. The room is actually more spacious than average hotel in EU with separate toilet room and bathroom (with bathtub). Amenities are very minimal with only shampoo, soap and shower gel. All glasses arw in either paper or plastic in very small size. The hotel only provides 1 bottle of Vittel free of charge on contrary to other chain hotels that provide 2 bottles. The hotel has 24/7 fitness center with well equipped branded treadmill and kinesis and weight area. Also free play station 4 for family activity.

We stayed there 2 nights. There was a mixed up with our room but it was smoothly resolved. Whole personels spoke English. The room was spacious, clean, quiet. There was a hairdryer, tea kettle, instant coffees, creamers, sugars. There was also a mini fridge. To have electricity in the room (and fridge working) one has to leave one key card when leaving. Otherwise there would be no electricity, no A/C, no working fridge. WiFi was free and very strong. TV had a good amount of channels to choose from. It had an HDMI plug. The bed was comfortable and big. There is also a sofa bed for two. There is not enough electrical plugs so extention cable is recommended. This hotel is basically in the centrum so it is a good base for a city trip. The parking is below but is not connected with the hotel, no access from the hotel, but it is still very close. 26 euro per night. There is a restaurant in the hotel. Breakfast – 20 euro. We had a very good stay and in the future we will choose this hotel again.
