Travel Blogs from Luxembourg City
Today the weather is dull and grey but we are still in our shorts......perfect weather for some schnapps shopping. We all piled into one motorhome and headed for the town of Zweisel to visit the famous schnapps shop. This shop is a tourist attraction in its own right ! Filled to the brim with their own brand if schnapps which comes in flavours labelled "lusty granny" and "lusty mama " and many more. Sampling is a must and you only have to glance ...
Today we drove to Egging which is in the heart of Bavaria, the weather now is very and sunny. We arrived around lunch time and opted for a nice lazy afternoon reading and relaxing. It was warm but I still managed to complete my run with David accompanying me on his bike. The campsite e at staying at is excellent we have booked in for 3 nights so that we can explore the area. I have now got 3 very angry insect bites it happens me every time ...
... of just over half a million people and an area of 998 sq miles it is one of the smallest sovereign nations in Europe. It is headed by a grand duke and is the worlds only remaining grand duchy. It so happens that we saw said duke, who emerged from his palace, with its little pointy turrets, with police escort and tight security while we were wandering by - a bit of excitement for the dozen or so tourists who had suspected something ...

Alexandre moves to my right and Courtney goes to my left, but slowly lingers behind. I hear a sound coming from something in the street, but think nothing of it. We separate to walk, when suddenly, Alexandre turns to face me after I gave a little scream, I guess he was worried I was being assaulted or something. But no, an air vent just happened to send a ...

A quick hug goodbye, and the usual pre-travel instructions that make me sound more like somebody’s mother than their friend, and I was out, hurrying into the rain-soaked streets to catch my tram home, the slow and haunting melody of Une dernière verre (pour la route) (A last glass (for the road)) stuck in my head. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton Luxembourg Luxembourg City
It is a nice Hilton!!!
Just good things to say
We came for a week end and we had a big and nice room, upgrade in a Deluxe King junior Suite because I am HHonors Diamond
The building seems to be old but inside, nothing bad!
Fitness center with indoor pool and sauna
Restaurant: choice of a big buffet from 20 to 30 Euros if you want everything, or a la carte menu
Big breakfast buffet in the morning
Free parking, and a bus going to downtown just 1 minute from the entrance
Concierge so helpfull, he knows so many thing about Luxembourg
What else to say: I would definitly come back in the Hilton Luxembourg, now I could find it more easely than first time at night...
Avoid at all costs
I stayed for 6 weeks as part of a business trip
Tatty: Holes in carpet, mouldy bathrooms. In need of a refurb
OK, however complaints were not taken seriously, room upgrade was refused despite being a silver hilton honors member
OK, expensive for what you get - eat out
Stayed at the Hilton Luxembourg in August 2004. The hotel looked like it needed considerable refurbishment when we checked in but we had a complimentary upgrade to what we believe was a junior suite - although all the fixtures & fittings were old, they were in good condition. The public areas, however, still seemed very dated.
Should be 3 stars
For what you pay you get very little here. And services one would almost take for granted at a proper business hotel, like internet access, are charged extra at very high prices. Generally, the hotel feels run down and the service is so, so. If they had promoted this as a 3 star hotel and charge half the price I would have been satisfied.
The Hilton Luxembourg is so-so. I am an international traveler and stayed at this hotel during a study tour for my graduate program.
Stayed in the Hilton Hotel in Luxemburg, last March 2005, and was disappointed with our stay. We arrived with a very personable front desk personnel (one of the two good things that we experienced), who gave us a room with a nice view. However, the room had view but the central airconditioning seemed not to be working. We went out to enjoy the city. And when we returned and asked about it, they gave a reason it was still in winter-mode. Flimpsy excuse, when the hallway, the cafe and lobby had a wonderfully controlled temperature. It was only when I asked for a change of room, I was allowed to change. But the front desk personnel made it sound that it was my fault not to say I want to have a room with good air-conditioning. And to add to it, they were not even a bit apologetic about having a sub-standard room.
Needs a little TLC
My husband and I stayed at the Luxembourg Hilton for one night in July 2004. Our overall impression is that this hotel needs a little love. The interior was very dark and unimpressive. We were staying on the HiltonHHonors floor and the hallway was so dark you felt like you needed a flashlight. The staff were not very friendly or helpful. Simple questions were met with exasperation. I am sure there are some rooms with a nice view but ours faced a parking lot and another large building.
We did fill out a comment card for the hotel and received a very prompt letter from the general manager expressing his apologies for the staff and mentioned that upgrades to the hotel would be occurring in the future.
We got the Hilton Hotel to transfer us here as the Hilton was being refurbished and is not in the centre of Luxembourg.
Hotel was much better until it became Hilton
I stayed in the hotel several times, first it was Intercontinental and very good. Friendly service, clean rooms and the excellent restaurant "Les Continents". This restaurant is the reason for my yearly trip there - fantastic service, excellent food and the whole atmosphere is one of the best I have ever had. On my second visit it just became Hilton and even today, the inhouse directory is from Intercontinental is placed in the room. The hotestaff now is unfriendly and even if I stay once a year there I am not known there. The restraurant is still a must when you visit the city, the hotel not. Now the rooms are dirty, in a very bad condition and the minimum of unfriedly service is something you don't really want, when you come to a "good" hotel.
The Hilton was once very nice but over the years it is rundown and not kept up. Carpets worn out, sheets very thin,etc. Rooms are very small unless you upgrade at a price. Not a non-smoker friendly hotel. Lobby is filled with smoke and the ashtrays are inside the elevators! They only provide wash cloths the first night after that you have to ask for them and then they have a difficult time understanding you. It is out of town with no gift shop. You are stuck buying their water out of the minibar at a premium. The service was very poor in the main restaurant and the gourmet restaurant was closed while we were there. The plumbing is worn out and difficult to operate. They do have a nice breakfast buffet but most of the staff do not understand english which is surprising for Luxembourg. Being out of town it is quiet and they do have air conditioning in the rooms which is rare in Luxembourg.
