Historical Traveler Reviews Le Royal Hotels & Resorts - Luxembourg Luxembourg City
A gem of a hotel in a gem of a city
As one Luxembourg native told me, Le Royal is the best hotel in the center. It is perfectly situated at in the financial district between the edge of the old center (shopping district) and the edge of park, and far enough away from the not as nice downtown area (around train station), but still walkable if you want to go there. The services of the hotel and attentiveness of the staff are tiptop, as you'd expect for this class of hotel. The breakfast buffet is great (by european standards), but what I'd expect at, say, the La Jolla Torrey Pines (CA) Hilton. What made this great stay a real treat was that I booked a "Royal" weekend via the net and stayed 2 nights with everything - i.e., fitness center, pool, sauna & steam, and a fantastic dinner at their attached gourmet restaurant for a total of 206 euros, less than 1/2 the normal discounted rate. But I would have gladly stayed there even without a weekend special.
When can I go back?
Everything was fantastic.
My daughter got a small notebook on her bed when we returned to our room, what a thought!
Lovely evening meal on the terrace.
Wish we had more time at this hotel.
You can see why it is one of the leading hotels in the world.
Will go back at the first opportunity.
A leading hoel... not if it's hot!
a change of plans brought me to luxembourg, and i tend to rely on properties with leading hotels of the world but found this hotel not as comfortable as it could have been. #1 it was hot! and the air conditioning was totally inadequate. even closing the blackout shades didn't help...i felt like i was in the batcave! the usual response when you complain is ...well, it never gets this hot here. BUT IT DOES! the room was plain, but the bed was decent. the breakfast was terrific..make sure you get it included in the rate. the location is great and the public park behind the hoel was idyllic.
This hotel is beautiful. The service is first class. Everything at your fingertips. I would definitely stay here again.
I've just returned from a business trip to Luxembourg. I stayed at the Royal and I thought it was very nice. The rooms were comfortable and very clean and the lobby area was nicely decorated. Breakfast was a real feast (although you'd expect that for 28 Euro's!) and the piano bar was a giggle in the evenings!
The location is great and the staff are friendly and attentive without being too in your face.
I'd reccomend it, and would return (as long as my employers are prepared to foot the bill again!).
Wonderful level of service
Excellent hotel. Have now stayed twice, in 2004 and 2005, for a total of nine nights -- and both experiences were excellent.
The rooms are quite comfortable and well thought-out for efficient work and peaceful rest. The only (minor) downsides: the TV is OK but not great; the bathroom is large but the bath itself is not very wide; and there is no alarm clock in the room (but the desk employees did not miss a single wake-up call in the 9 nights I have spent there thus far).
For work, one gets a large desk, two comfortable deskchairs, and lots of lights. The internet service in the room works right off the bat (from 5 euros per hour to 20 euros per whole day), and I got a lot of last-minute help from the business office downstairs last year (did not need the this time around).
The restaurant (Le Jardin) is quite good too. Breakfast is efficient and tasty, and so is dinner. Very short wine list, but good wines on it.
What really sets the hotel apart, though, is the superb service at any time of the day or night. All employees really go out of their way to help. My parents, who visited at the same time this year, commented that staff members are particularly helpful without being servile and polite without being obsequious. I concur.
All in all, a great hotel. I'll be back next year.
Not what I'd call a 'leading hotel of the world'
Was very underwhelmed by this hotel. The trouble started when we waited 45 mins at the airport for the transport we had prearranged with the hotel despite 2 phone calls we still had 2 wait for a ridiculous amount of time.
The hotel is well situated in the centre of town with everything in walking distance. The room was very average and rather small considering the prices. The hotel pool is very dated and not what I would expect from a luxury hotel. The breakfast was very good however, with an excellent range of items and free champagne.
Going back to the airport we encountered similar problems as we had not booked it when we arrived despite the fact I had emailed all the flight details before our arrival.
All in all there is nothing bad about the hotel but it is no more than a 4* in service and facilities. The only 5* thing about this hotel is the prices!
Five star blandness
5 star luxury without a hint of character. Expensive corporate palace designed for bureaucrats spending your tax dollars.
They are celebrating their 20th birthday - how nice of them to have changed nothing.
Unless you have to stay here go for Trier just over the German border.
Wow!!! what a hotel
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Royal Windsor for the weekend. The hotel is well located right in the middle of Luxembourg and close to everything the city has to offer. We had booked the hotel through the "Leading Hotels of The World" website and got a "Weekend" package, which included full buffet breakfast, dinner at the Restaurant, free parking and a drink at the piano bar. The rate was ?189 pr. night.We were quite surprised when it turned out the dinner actually was a 6-course meal. The food was exquisite and the service outstanding.Our room was a traditional room but very spacious. The room was very beautiful and well furbished with a huge bed and marble bathroom. The staffs were very helpful and we felt very welcome at the Hotel. The buffet breakfast was amazing and the service in the restaurant excellent-. The next time we go to Luxembourg we will stay at "Le Royal" Again. I will recommend "Le Royal" to everybody because this hotel is the best 5 star hotel I?ve ever been to.
Excellent value! Having seen the hotel from the outside and perused the brochure, I wondered if this isn't just a glossed-up airport hotel.
It's not. The rooms are very comfortable, well thought out and the service and food is very much up to 5star standards. It is by far the most comfortable hotel in Lux and I recommend it without hesitation. 2 keys to happiness: Get a room facing the park (back) and check the special deals on the hotel website.

The weather today was not quite the blue skies and hot weather that the last few days have been, but more a welcome rainy day. Which was nice for my necklace of sunburn. But before I get too far into my day I need to rant to anyone who travels or will travel...IF YOU ARE SHARING A ROOM WITH SOMEONE AND YOU NEED TO BE UP EARLY, IT IS NOT POLITE TO BANG YOUR BAG AROUND AND MAKE A FUSS AT 4AM AND TURN ...
... as Hobart (the capital of Tasmania), but the population...is more than 500,000! Yet the city doesn't seem over populated. Maybe they are all on holidays. Or at home. I don't even get how a whole country can be that small. Anyway! We finished the tour, got more food for tonight and then all of us went back and chilled at the hostel for a while. And then it was time. Time to hike up to the top of the hill that overlooks the city and ...
... maybe it was the idea of not making it home. But it freaked me right out. To the point where I was noticeably shakey getting on the plane, noticeably tense while we took off and definitely freaked out when we did a U-turn. Even though I know well that it is the only way a plane can turn and it wad at a normal angle. I spoke to the plane. I asked it to get me to Luxembourg safely. If they aren't signs of a nomad freaked out of her wits over ...
... ride wasn’t bad at all, only an hour and a half! By the time we got to Luxembourg City it was night time. When we got off the train I was surprised to learn that people in Luxembourg speak Luxembourgish (obviously), but also English, French, German and Portuguese. In the station there were so many advertisements in English that we all got excited because Luxembourg kind of reminded us of Providence back in RI with ...

In the plaza there was a Christmas market set up with German/French food and gifts. From the market started walking back to the river overlook. The book suggested that we could follow the road or go down the steps and walk through the park that followed the river. We ...
