Good value on RER B *5e

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 12, 2006

I spent 6 nights here with my husband and, aside from getting used to the RER as our main "metro", we found it very agreeable.
.
You could faintly hear the RER in my room on the 3rd floor [there are 5 floors], but unless you are a princess it is no problem, in fact reassuring. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and well-fitted. There was a hair dryer and enough outlets here and there for recharging your technology. The shower was excellent. Someone spent money on the fixtures -- they were Grohe and very solid. [I had looked at Grohe for our bathroom at home, but they were too expensive!]
.
My only criticisms are small. There is too much fluorescent light in the lobby, which lacks charm, and the breakfast, while ample, does not have the freshest bread. On the other hand the manager/owner is very nice as are his assistants. They do speak English, but we operated only in French and it went swimmingly. Now that I have the RER and changing at Chatelet down pretty well I would stay there again in a minute.

Unique Quality: The bathroom was the highlight. It was a good size with good fixtures, plenty of hot water and very nice tile.

Directions: Just a block south of the southern Luxembourg RER exit [The "B" train"]
