We stayed one night in this lovely hotel right outside the old city center of Luxembourg (a ten minutes walk would bring you right into the heart of the old city). Staff was very friendly and helpful. We felt welcome from the moment we entered the spacious lobby. It was the day before Easter and there was a big display in the lobby with free chocolate and boiled eggs for all the guests. Very festive. In the lobby you could play xbox games or just relax in the comfortable chairs. There was also a large touch screen with information about the weather and the city, which, to my surprise, worked perfectly.
We had booked the executive room, which was nice and clean, with a comfy sofa and a desk with one chair. The view from the window wasn’t much to speak of, but we didn’t mind. On the bed we found slippers and a bathrobe. Wifi in the hotel was free, as it should be. The bathroom was compact, but modern, clean and comfortable with a shower in the bath. Bath products smelled nice and there was even a body scrub provided. We appreciated the fact that the toilet was in a seperate room.
The room was equipped with bluetooth speakers so we could play our own music. Very nice. The contents of the minibar was included in the price of the executive room. The minibar contained only non-alcoholic beverages though (except for the Heineken beer, but that doesn’t really count). There was also a nespresso coffee maker in the room, which made my coffee loving boyfriend very happy.
Breakfast was really excellent. There were different buffets to choose from. English breakfast, juices, fresh fruit salad, salmon, cheese, charcuterie, pastries, pancakes,… Lots of options to choose from. Everything fresh and tasty. A small detail: the pancakes were a little bit too cold. But honestly, that’s nitpicking.
Novotel Luxemburg is a very family-friendly hotel. During our stay we saw lots of families with children which created a very relaxed and joyful vibe in the hotel. The children obviously loved playing with the X-box.
The hotel also has a very nice bar (which closes at 12pm) and restaurant. The Red Square restaurant is really great and I can definitely recommend it. We ate there the evening of our arrival. Really loved the asparagus with salmon and my boyfriend was equally happy with his hamburger. Food arrived quickly and was very nice. The complementary bread was freshly baked and we got free chips with our drinks. Staff was really attentive.
Tip: Park your car in the large car park under the hotel. When you leave you can pay for it at the reception. Very convenient.
Really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Friendly staff, excellent service, nice rooms, great breakfast, modern building and close to the city center. One cannot ask for more.
