Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Grand Hotel Alfa Luxembourg Luxembourg City
Quite an average hotel really...
Well, I would say its quite average - I didn't use the bar or take breakfast so I didn't really see much of the hotel. Since it didn't really have any other facilities then I saw only my room.
Disappointing to find many cigarette burn marks on my duvet cover and the carpet in the room was very old. A bit of a disappointing 4**** hotel really.
It was fairly clean, but the rooms were crying out for some modernisation... It could be much better and I have certainly had better experiences in other Mercures.
I wouldn't have liked to pay more than 65 EUR for this stay, its very handy for the train station - just across the road... So, if you need somewhere handy in Luxembourg and are on a budget this is your place.
Wrong Side of Town
The hotel was very nice & great value for money, but the location was poor. Too close to the train station and the beggers/drunks around it.
The old city is very nice and worth a visit.
Agree with previous comments, but great price!
This hotel was a mixed bag. Room was excellent - large and clean and rate (from mercure website was very cheap). In fact, I probably had the best nights sleep of my two week, 7 hotel holiday here!
The real downside was the parking lot's location 5 minutes walk away along a seedy side street (although thankfully it was only a side street and there were no such problems in the immediate vicinity of the hotel). Its worth pointing out as well that work has started on a car park under the hotel which is supposed to be ready for 2007.
I'd stay here again, if the price was right!
Good value for money
Good hotel very clean,good location 10 minutes from the centre and the old town.
This hotel offer real value for money at the rate we paid.
We chose this hotel for it's close proximity to the train station as we were only staying one night and were taking the train to France the next day. Even though the main tourist areas were a 20 /30 min walk away we still felt the location was OK. We had read that the area was seedy but we felt quite safe walking back to the hotel at 1am . There is a bus stop directly outside the hotal entrance which attracts crowds to form on the pavement but once you get away from that it's fine. The area is not as nice or as convenient for site seeing as the old town area but for our puposes it was great and at £45 for the night it was a bargain. The hotel itself was nice enough, the room very large , very comfortable beds, the bathroom OK ( a bit small but clean - slight problem with the shower flooding) The lounge / bar area was large but not very relaxing and we found it to be a bit too smokey. Breakfast was a bit expensine at 18 Euros p/p so we didn't bother as there are plenty of places to get breakfast around the town.
We were very pleased with this hotel. Comfortable beds and superb service. We did not have breakfast, but it looked very good. Very close to train station, but a bit far from city central. Easy enough to rectify by purchasing a 10 trip bus pass and we got in the city in a jiff. The city is small, but very beautiful and I wouldn't have missed it. Give it at least one day.
Average hotel in disappointing city
As our last night on a 3 week drive around Central Europe, this was a real disappointment. Finding the hotel was difficult to begin with - some better road signs would help in a very small City. When we found the place, staff helped us to unload but then told us the car park was about 400 metres away - a public multi-storey in an insalubrious part of town. Reception staff were fine. The lift was slow but not as tiny as some. The room was large and quite well-equipped, if a bit dingy.
We only stayed one night. The Centre of Luxembourg's old town was unremarkable but we found an excellent restaurant at "La Forchette a Droit". When we left, torrential rain began. As we had to cross busy roads on our soggy walk back to the hotel, impatient, aggressive drivers seemed to want to see us soaked and stranded.
The next day breakfast was OK but, as we had found in other cities and other hotels, the staff did not seem to want to help at all. We had to manage without coffee.
So overall - stay in another City and if you have to stay in Luxembourg, try somewhere else - especially if you have a car.
Incredibly accomodating staff. The staff took great pains on a quiet Saturday evening to find us hypoallergenic pillows and duvets. They were extremely helpful regarding location questions as well. The hotel is directly across from the train station and there is a major bus stop literally out the front steps of the hotel. Thus, there are some unsavory characters about. We didn't stay long enough to sample breakfast, but would stay here again just based upon the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The room decor is a bit dark, but the beds were quite comfortable and the overall ambience was above the average Mercure.
Loved the Mercure Grand Hotel Luxembourg Alfa
We arrived at the Mercure Hotel in August 2004 after a very easy flight from London. The Hotel was extremely easy to find being right opposite the main train station. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and the room was excellent with air-conditioning, a large 6 ft bed and a lovely bathroom and separate toilet - all very spacious.
The restaurant served excellent french food and again the staff were extremely friendly and the prices compared favourably to others in the town.
Luxembourg is a super, clean city with charming people and wonderful public transport at knockout rates.
We would highly recommend this hotel for a holiday.
Very well pleased
This hotel was a welcome sight after flying all night and landing in Frankfurt. The accomodations were quite good. The room even had my name displayed on the tv screen. I enjoyed the dining room, with its good wine and excellent service. I also enjoyed its central location. There was a mall just down the street, with a supermarket where I purchased wine very reasonably. In the mall was also a Turkish Bath, where I was able to relax and unwind. This is a good hotel.

We ate a couple bars of delicious Belgium chocolate and gyros for dinner. Going to bed early. Weather has been warm but not too bad.

Anyway, Jordan and I were walking arm and arm, galumphing down the hill while rapping to Jay-Z with one headphone each, and the girl who got off the bus and was walking in front of us started to poke fun at our elderly-sounding complaining. She was staying at the hostel too, and once we got back, she asked what we were up to. We told her we wanted to ...

A number of movies have been made there, a few being vampire movies, and when you see the castle you can understand why it was selected. It was quite a hike up to the castle from the bus stop, but worth the walk.
Marg finally found a patchwork fabric shop (she has been looking for from the beginning), shame it was closed.
