Whether you stay in a room at the back of the hotel (where the air conditioning unit sounds like a jumbo jet) or at the front (where the yahoos stumble by at night and the delivery trucks rumble in the morning), there is no escaping the relentless noise. Then there are the paying guests, who delight in conversing at the tops of their lungs up and down the stairwell, regardless of the time.

Only checked into the Hotel Francais for one night while travelling through Europe and was quite pleased to find this little gem. As has been mentioned, this hotel is located in an excellent section of the city, right in the heart of everything. Only downside is that it is a long walk from the train station (more than 20 minutes), so if you have bags, it's a no-go on foot. It is located in a pedestrian-only plaza with lovely sights and at least half a dozen restaurants. It is also only a few blocks away from some other excellent sights, like the cathedral and the old fort casements that make the city unique.

The rooms were fairly small, although nothing worse than anything else I have experienced in Europe, but were furnished well and we didn't want for anything. Even had a towel warmer in the bathroom! The elevator going up to the rooms is also small, so be prepared to carry some bags up the winding stairs if you have a lot of them.

My only drawbacks were the small elevator/difficult stairs to navigate and on several instances I had to stop by reception for one reason or another, only to find it unoccupied. Someone turned up within 15 minutes each time, but it was just a bit irritating to have to wait, especially during regular business hours.

Overall, though, it is a wonderful little place to stay and the staff were attentive when I did interact with them. I would definitely stay there again when I'm in Luxembourg!

This hotel is located in a great location. It is a fair walk from the train station but you can always take the bus if necessary. Lots of nice restaurants in the immediate area, lovely atmosphere and safe area.

Hotel itself is nice, small lift to bring you up with your bags and good sized rooms. Good bathroom facilities with good water pressure, comfortable beds, decent pillows and internet access. Can get loud if you have a room facing the square during the summer months.

This hotel is on the pedestrian area on a square in the middle of town. I think you can drive down to the hotel to unload, but then you have to find parking in one of the nearby pay parking lots. We were there at Christmas time and had a room facing the square and overlooking the Christmas market, which was pretty cool with all its lights. The Market closed at 8pm so noise was not an issue. The hotel is up one floor above the restaurant. We had booked two rooms, one with a queen-size bed and one with two twins. When we got there we found that the two twin beds were pushed together like a king-size bed and could not be pulled apart. For our travel companions, this was not a suitable arrangement as it was going to be like sharing a bed. We asked, and received, two smaller rooms in place of the one room with twin beds without a change in total cost to us. Both substitute rooms had a double bed and were comfortable. Good size rooms for one person. Our queen-bed room had a lot of room. Everything was very clean. The TV may have had English channels of CNN and/or BBC news but I don’t really remember. No other English channels I do remember that. Breakfast was in the restaurant downstairs. It was a small setup with cereal, breads/pastries, yogurt, cheese and cold meats, jam, butter, OJ, coffee, tea. Eggs were boiled upon request and brought to your table.

Great place to stay if you want to be within walking distance of "old Luxembourg". Plenty of shop, resturants, sights. Rooms are small - showers even smaller. BUT please note that when I return with my wife I intend to stay here again. Clean, nice staff, great breakfast included, but the location was the main selling point for me.

You couldn't ask for a more central location than the Hotel Francais !
Room was ideal - a decent size , clean , comfortable , WIFI .
Crowds at the cafes in the square were not as rowdy as I would imagine they could be in the height of summer, so we had no issues with noise . Similarly on a morning - delivery vans were arriving around 07.00 hrs - so no hassle with that either.
Breakfasts- served in the cafe - were excellent .
A great base for visiting Luxembourg.
