in the middle of the pedestrian zone and only 50 m from the Hotel Simoncini. The restaurant and terrace of the Hotel Français offer our guests a view of the most beautiful square in Luxembourg's capital.
The Hotel Simoncini is the only hotel gallery in Luxembourg. As part of the conversion of the former center-of-town Schintgen Hotel, we wanted to transform a cherished concept of ours into reality: bring our art gallery together under the same roof as our new hotel venture.
The objective: Amalgamate the two roles of the building in such a way that guests who so desire can be fully involved in the artistic agenda of the gallery, whose poetry, etchings, paintings and sculptures are incorporated into the hotel’s six floors, and which even has direct corridors connecting the hotel with the gallery.
Making the hotel an extension of the gallery and having the gallery open into the hotel resulted in changes to plans for the hotel, sacrificing space to augment some areas that would house artwork.
