Sofitel is a brand synonymous with luxury city stays and the Sofitel Luxembourg Europe is no different. On entry to the hotel, every need is taken care of as you’re greeted by their friendly team of hotel staff and they whisk your luggage up to your room.
The building is extremely impressive with an oval shaped hotel lobby which is flooded with light from the glass ceiling above. The hotel interior is slick and modern with an emphasis on great design. Guests mill about here, enjoying the bright and spacious areas of the hotel.
Our suite was spacious with a huge king-sized bed, a lounge seating area, a dressing area and a high-spec bathroom kitted out with robes, slippers and luxury Hermes toiletries. It was luxurious and comfortable; perfect for lazy weekend lie-ins. After extracting ourselves from the comfortable cloud-like bed, we headed down to enjoy breakfast in their bright casual restaurant space.
A delicious breakfast buffet awaited us. Before we could even sit down, a basket of fresh pastries and a some freshly squeezed orange juice was delivered to our table, shortly followed by a pot of hot coffee. We were treated to a range of hot and cold options and we indulged in eggs with smoked salmon on thickly sliced granary bread, yoghurt, fruit smoothies, warm crisp croissants with smooth hazelnut spreads and a delicious range of plump, exotic fruits. It was a real treat and a fantastic start to the day.
Lunch in their restaurant Oro E Argento was stunning. An unexpected beautiful fine-dining experience awaited us, with a range of authentic Italian dishes on offer. I started the meal with a spinach dish, which was drowned in parmesan truffle cream with a delicately poached egg on top and buckwheat toast soldiers to accompany. The flavours were rich and indulgent, with the earthy truffle running through each bite.
My main was a black tortellini filled with seabass and topped with a citrus foam. The pasta was fresh and the filling was meaty and flavoursome with the light, fragrant foam adding a subtle citrusy twist.
Dessert was an Italian favourite of panna cotta with pine ice-cream and a citrus jelly. The panna cotta had the perfect wobble and a smooth creamy taste as it should do. It was a visually beautiful dish served in a shallow bowl with vibrant colours hinting at the exciting flavours to come. I enjoyed a Southern Italian red-wine alongside this which meant that after this beautifully indulgent meal we were ready to retire to our suite for a nap.
Another must here is a cocktail or coffee in their sophisticated Sixtyfour bar. Another beautifully designed space, this classy bar serves a range of delicious cocktails alongside a great wine list and bar snacks. If you’re feeling in the mood, you can also enjoy a cigar in their classic Havana Lounge.
It’s a hotel which has everything and in a city of class and style the Sofitel Luxembourg is the perfect home for a weekend stay here.
