The Hôtel de la Chambre des Députés (English: Hall of the Chamber of Deputies) is the meeting place of the Luxembourgish national legislature, the Chamber of Deputies, in Luxembourg City, in southern Luxembourg. It is located on Krautmaart, an irregularly-shaped street in the historic heart of the city, in Ville Haute quarter. Next to the Chamber is the Grand Ducal Palace, the official residence of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg. Due to the Hôtel's location, 'Krautmaart' has become a metonym for the Chamber of Deputies itself.

The Hall of the "Chamber of Deputies" houses Luxembourg's unicameral parliament, also referred to as "Krautmaart" after the street on which the historistic building stands. As the world`s last grand duchy, the Chamber shares legislative power with the government and the Grand Duke, with the latter fulfilling mainly a representative role. The constitution also provides for a Council of State: a de facto second chamber which advises the Chamber of Deputees.
