Boutique Hotel Lumiere
Ranked #16 of 26 Hotels in Eindhoven
Reviewed 23 March 2013

Our university student group of 17 needed to find a hotel for 3 nights in Eindhoven. There were several choices, but after reading trip advisor, we settled on the Lumiere, and I am very glad we did. All the reception staff we met were warm, friendly and very helpful.

This is an upscale business hotel that is rather pricey given the exchange rate of the euro to the dollar. After having big issues with the internet service in older hotels in Amsterdam and Delft, the robustness of the internet at the Lumiere was very welcome! We could finally all skype our families and get our work done!

Our students all had double rooms. They were a bit small overall but very comfortable. The bedding was excellent—the best we had on our 16-day trip traveling around The Netherlands (you get what you pay for). Students had electric kettles and tea and instant coffee in their rooms. My colleague and I each had an executive room (mine was a corner room #107, with several separate areas, like a little suite). My colleague had a different layout, a larger room #210, without smaller areas. We both had Nespresso machines with an ample supply of capsules (robust, medium, decaf).

The hotel does not have a breakfast room. They use the bakery next door to offer breakfast to their clients. We purchased the breakfast voucher for each of the students at 9.5 euros each. This enabled us to go next door and eat anything we wanted (there were no eggs as I recall), but there were an amazing variety of pastries, meats, cheeses, breads for sandwiches, excellent granola, fruits and yogurt (plain and in cups), and all the coffee you could drink (strong and dark).
Many students made sandwiches to take with them for their lunches. So, for us it was a very good deal.

My only compliant about the hotel is that it smells like a bakery all the time. It's a pleasant smell, but if you are on a diet or trying not to eat foods with sugar (like pastries), it can drive you crazy.
There is not much of a lobby area, but there is a large screen TV behind the reception desk, a Nespresso machine if you want a coffee, and a bowl of candy and lollypops that our students made a serious dent in for the 3 nights we were there!

There is a business center with two computers and a printer, on the floor below the reception area with a large table. On the last day we were in Eindhoven, the hotel stored our considerable amount of luggage in a storage room, and many of the students used the business area to do their homework before we left for the train to Amsterdam at 5:00 p.m.

My wife and I stayed here on a weekend and were quite pleased with the place.

The rooms are a good size with a nice modern feel. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was great, with a large shower and big separate tub. There's free wifi throughout the hotel, and a Nespresso machine in the room.

There's no restaurant in the hotel. They send visitors to the bakery next door for breakfast for about 10 euros each, which isn't a bad option. We simply grabbed a few things from the bakery and took them back to our room instead.

Room Tip: The executive room was a little larger and good value for the money.

Nice stylish hotel in the heart / pedestrian zone of Eindhoven! Renovated rooms. Clear minus: no breakfast room in hotel! You can have breakfast in a bakery next door. Plus: selection! :-) minus: limited space and small tables! Over all: nice hotel not perfect for business trips!

Lastbweekend we stayed in boutique hotel Lumiere for the second time and it was fabulous again. The rooms are beautiful and spacious, the beds are extremely comfortable and breakfast at 'bakkertje Bol' feels like being in a candy store where you can choose anything you like. Location is very central with shops, restaurants, bars and railway station all in walking distance. Officially a three star accommodation this definitely feels like a fourvstar hotel.

This is a top quality hotel right in the centre of Eindhoven. The room I had was an upgrade, which I paid for, it's worth doing that as it was a fantastic room.
Extremely clean, very stylish and HUGE room.
Good sleep quality, great bathroom.
Service also very friendly at the desk - nice and helpful. Free Wi-Fi is always nice and this is provided along with a discount sheet for nearby restaurants. Also free water in the room is very welcome.
The only slight negative if I am truly picky is the lack of restaurant, but breakfast is served at the bakery, unfortunately I didn't have time to try it.
Would be back if I am anywhere near Eindhoven to this great place.

The first room we were given had a nasty problem - a very strong smell of mold. Fortunately, we were moved to another room at our first request (and even given an upgrade). What we cannot understand - they were not surprised when we complained about the smell, so why did they give us this room in the first place?

Hotel is located near the main shopping street and is in a short walk from the Central Station. Staff is very friendly, however make sure to notify them if you need an early check-out, as there is no-one at the reception desk during the night. The rooms look somewhat tired - walls are scratched in some places, the flooring seems to have not been touched during the last refurbishment, as it stands out from the overall decor. The bathroom however is very clean and recently renewed. The beds were too soft for our liking. Breakfast is served at a bakery next door, but it's not worth ordering it through the hotel - you'll end up paying more.

Overall, it can be a good place to stay if there is more effort put into it.

Room Tip: Avoid the room next to the laundry - it seems to have a mold problem.
