“Great location and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

This visit started well before we even got to the hotel, we had a few questions on parking etc. with it being a city centre location, all our emails were answered very quickly and with all the information we had asked for, and in some cases with loads of extra useful information.
At reception the staff were friendly, informative, and obviously very knowledgeable about both the hotel facilities and the local area.

Our room was spacious, clean, and fitted out to a high standard, with a lot of nice design features and fittings.

The breakfast concept was interesting in that breakfast is taken at a bakery next door to the hotel, before our visit we had some doubts about this, but once you try it, it makes most hotel breakfasts look poor by comparison. There is a very wide selection of continental style breakfast items, with an unlimited choice. The bakery staff were also very helpful in pointing out what items were, which was great given the vast selection!

Would we stay there again? Yes, without any hesitation. Highly recommended.

Very nice, modern hotel. Very central location and everything within short walking distance. Rooms decent size and good value.

Staff very helpful and friendly. Can't imagine a better hotel in the city.

Hotel Lumiere was perfect for our short stay in Eindhoevn. Its located minutes from the train station in the centre of the city, within walking distance of all the shops, restaurants and pubs and cafes. The room we stayed in was an executive suite,and HUGE! The bed was so comfortable it was hard to actually get up and go sightseeing in the morning, and the room was warm and bright with all the conveiniences you'd expect, and there was a nespresso coffee machine too!
Couldn't fault the place, ten out of ten.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a suite, its well worth it.

Let's start with the location of the hotel: straight in the center of the city, in a pedestrian zone, just behind the main square, in an area full of good restaurants and shops. It is also at a walking distance from the main railway station.

Staff was helpful and friendly.

Room is spacious, the space was well distributed, with even a kind of small separate area with table and Nespresso coffee machine, suitable for work.
Good choice of complimentary hot drinks (hot chocolate, Nesspresso coffees like Volluto, Roma or Decafeinato, teas).
Bathroom was marvelous, brand new with bathtub and even a quite large shower box.
Bed was comfortable and I slept well, without suffering rumors, although the room was looking at the street.

All in all, I will not miss the opportunity to stay in Lumier Hotel should I return to Eindhoven.

A small remark: hotel provides also a small stereo set, but it was able tune only one station with a kind of Dutch pop-music....which was nice, but there was no choice of different music.

Room Tip: I slept in room 218.

I agree with the reviews I read except for one point. I did not sleep at all. Ii could hear people shouting and talking (Friday night out) were shouting as if they were standing next to my bed. I think there must be rooms which are less noisy. Ask for it!!

Stayed at this hotel on Oktober the 8th for one night. The hotel is centraly located and only a short walk from the trainstation, but if you travel by car you can park your car at a garage accross the street.

The lady at the reception desk was very friendly and walked me to my room. The room was very clean, had a good bed ( soft matrasses => not my preference ), lots of pillows, tea and coffee in abundance and great shower.

Eindhoven has a square ( on the Markt ) where all the café and such are located. It can get noisy there in the evening. This hotel is located one street away from that area and therefore in a quiet area.

There are no dining or breakfast facilities inside the hotel, but the bakery next door is the place where you can sit down for breakfast and restaurants are all over the city center.

I would certainly recommend this hotel. Especially if you want to have a central location and not the noise that is accompanied with that.

As a traveler who spends >200 nights in hotels annually, I've gotten very picky about my choice of homes away from home. The Lumiere passes the test with flying colors.

Other hotels tried in town: Pullman, Holiday Inn, Mandarin Park Plaza, Mercure/Amrath, Van der Valk. Pullman is better but more expensive and too formal for my taste for long-term stays; Van der Valk is passable for a few nights; I found the others unacceptable.

The decor is conservative contemporary, and the staff extremely friendly and caring -- they give you that "family" feeling I value for long term stays as opposed to the formalism of upscale hotels. The decor is upscale, but isn't overdone - similar to what I have at home. The beds are comfortable pillowtops - a great night's sleep for an American who usually can't sleep on Europe's rock-hard beds (if you need American-grade "medium" softness, stay here; if you need "plush", stay at the Pullman). Cleanliness was impeccable - the only problems of note were a couple of rooms where the drywall had a few scratches that needed touching up.

I've stayed in both their standard and executive rooms. Felt just as comfortable in both - the biggest difference I saw was the executive rooms were a touch larger and had a tub in addition to the walk-in shower. Standard rooms only had a walk-in shower. The showers are spacious and comfortable - not typical European.

The hotel itself doesn't have a restaurant. They have arrangements for a reasonably-priced full continental breakfast with the bakery next door (EUR9,50). I eat light, so I skip that and just stop by the bakery every morning for the muffin and coffee to go special (EUR1,95). Ask the staff at the bakery to teach you a word of Dutch a day while you're there - they like that. For other meals - go wandering. There must be 50 good restaurants within 500m.

The location is perfect for short and long stays. It's in the pedestrian-only shopping areas, on a quiet side street that closes up shop at 18:00. I can walk 100m in any direction and find a plethora of good cafes, bars, and restauarants, and face none of the noise when I get "home".

Getting there by car and finding the "Hooghuis" parking garage where they have a contract proved challenging - it's set back from the street making it a bit hidden - you'll turn left onto the sidewalk just before the big iron sculpture. Be prepared to circle downtown for 15-20 minutes to get back there if you miss the turn. The pay surface lot on the right side of the street is easier to find. Driving a car around downtown Eindhoven is tricky in general - so be alert.

I'd say it's about 800m from the train station - pedestrian streets all the way, and for me it's walking distance. You can also look for the #19 or #407 buses from the train station (get off at Hooghuis, the stop in front of the surface parking lot).

With one exception, all rooms have the amenities you expect. The rooms don't have irons, but they are available on request from the front desk. All rooms are equipped with a mini-fridge (not a minibar - it's for food you bring). There is a guest washer/dryer (free including the detergent - the dryer works well). Of course, they have the usual pay-through-the-nose laundry service as well. If you're staying long, there is a full-size Albert Heijn grocery next to the train station.

I found it particularly convenient for working at the High Tech Center. The bus #407 to HTC runs every 15 minutes during commuting times and stops just across the street (50m to the end of the walking street then cross the street - 2011 bus fare is EUR2,40).

My benchmark for long-term stays is Marriott. The Lumiere is a half-star lower in decor and has no room service, but can compete on all the other fronts.

Room Tip: I've stayed in a half dozen rooms and they've all been pleasant. Some of the 3rd floor room...
