The Ibis Hotel Luxembourg Airport is a 3 star property which is approximately 5 minutes walk from the airport terminal. You can see the hotel from the exit from arrivals which makes it very easy to find.
There are actually two Ibis properties beside each other at this airport. The red branding is the 3 star Ibis which I am reviewing and the blue branding is for the 2 star Ibis Budget.
Below are two images representing the room taken from the Ibis web site. The great thing about professional photography is that it presents the rooms to their best advantage.
Everything looks ship shape as it should on a web site photo. Does the reality stack up though?
On arrival I waited around two minutes to be served and found the attendant to be friendly and personable. My room did not include breakfast so I was asked if I wanted that included. I declined.
My key card was issued and I was directed to the lift to take me to my room. I like a fast check-in experience and this one met my expectations.
Later I realised I neglected to pack a European plug adapter. I asked at Reception and they offered to sell me one for €10. Instead I suggested I borrow one and return it the next morning. One was duly found in a large drawer for me to use that night.
The Ibis Room
Happily the rooms do look like the pictures on the web site. There is a bed opposite a modest sized television which features an array of European channels including the BBC at no extra cost. Pleasingly the rooms have air conditioning.
There is a work desk under the window and an area beside this where you can put your luggage. A generous wardrobe is also provided. The bed itself is very comfortable for sleeping which of course is the main event in any hotel.
Room Service Menu
Airport hotels have people arriving at all hours of the day. To this end, the Ibis offers a 24 hour room service menu. Of course, this is a 3 star hotel so the menu is very basic.
Though small, the menu appears to be easy to cook and aimed to please the majority of people. There’s dessert so people with a sweet tooth will be happy. I did not order room service on my visit.
It’s The Bathroom
This room also matches the pictures from the Ibis web site. It has a shower with combination shower gel and shampoo and a basin. Oh, and a toilet too, of course!
Water pressure is quite fine in the shower and I found the bathroom to be clean. The towels are not thick and plush but I have no problem with thinner towels. They can be easier to manage when getting dry.
Overnight at the Ibis Luxembourg Airport met my expectations in every way. A clean room with a comfortable bed within walking distance of the airport terminal is exactly what I ordered.
It is good that room service is offered and the fact I could borrow a plug adapter rather than buy one is great. I suspect the loaners are ones people have left behind in the hotel rather than something they actively set out to provide.
