Professional tennis player Gilles Muller was once quoted, 'I told myself don't be nervous, it's a big opportunity. The whole world is watching.' Being the most successful tennis player in the history of Luxembourg, he cannot be faulted for putting too much pressure on himself. After all, he has the expectation of his whole country resting on his shoulders. Every match must feel like David vs Goliath to him. On a bigger scale, Luxembourg has exceeded expectations and developed into the leading banking and administrative center while being ranked first place for personal safety. While their rise to prominence is no fluke, many tourists are curious as to how they managed this magnificent feat and a trip there might answer some questions. With its stable economy and steady stream of visitors, hotels in Luxembourg are sprawled across the city to cater to the demand.
Economical Stays in Luxembourg
Having the second highest GDP per capita in the world, cheap hotels are slim pickings. A native Luxembourg hotel, Hotel-Restaurant Chez Anna Et Jean is probably the only noteworthy hotel in the city that provides excellent value. Located a short distance away from the Central Station, this hotel has small but clean rooms. The warm and inviting owner speaks five different languages and will engage you in meaningful conversations, making you feel right at home. Further away from the main city, Il Piccolo Mondo is another cheap hotel. Despite its location away from most of the action, the hotel makes up for it by offering breakfast and the in-house restaurant is cheaper than its competitors in the city too.
