Luxembourg City might be a pint-sized metropolis, but there’s a surprising amount of things to see including the Grand Ducal Palace, Notre-Dame Cathedral and Philharmonie concert hall. The ancient fortress and old city centre of Luxembourg are Unesco World Heritage Sites, while the lush green spaces are another attractive feature of this characterful city. If you’re stopping here for leisure or business, here are some of the top hotels the capital of Luxembourg has to offer – all bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Mercure Luxembourg Off Kirchberg

A stay at the 28-room Graace Hotel offers a rustic, country-style experience in the heart of the Luxembourg capital. The sound-proofed rooms, which open out onto green courtyard spaces, are clad in wood from floor to ceiling. The atmosphere is decidedly rural, but modern travellers are catered to with self-service iPads and high-speed internet. A smart key system is also in place to unlock the front gate, your room and the breakfast room.

3. Hostellerie du Grünewald

Grünewald, over in the Dommeldange quarter, prides itself on its gourmet restaurant serving seasonal French-inspired fare. Enjoy outdoor seating and barbecue on sunny days – when the weather clouds over, dine inside on delicacies such as roasted cod with lobster sauce, or the chef’s choice vegetarian carte blanche menu. The chef even has an on-site greenhouse for cultivating his own herbs. Once you’ve sampled an array of delights, check into one of the 24 cosy and elegantly appointed rooms. There are also five suites if you fancy a bit of decadence.

4. Novotel Luxembourg Centre
