This hotel is well placed near the centre of Obernai. My room was on the first floor (no lift), no aircon (but I knew this) and strange decoration. On the plus side, the room was comfortable, with good free wifi, a decent breakfast and the hotel offers private parking for €5 per day. There are many places to eat nearby.

Why on earth is this only a two-star Hotel? There is no minibar in the room and no elevator to the second floor but this hotel should have at least 3 stars. The rooms are clean and beautifully decorated. We have stayed in at least 20 different hotels in Alsace and this was one of the best considering price quality.... More

As a group of nine people we stayed in this very rustic but comfortable hotel in Obernai, Alsace for two nights. All rooms where very comfortable and well decorated. The service given to us by the very well trained staff was outstanding and could not have being better. Breakfast was a buffet and very well equipped. The whole hotel and... More

Historic and beautiful hotel -- solid stone construction with wood timbers and central courtyard. 700 years old, built into town wall, residence of town governor. Totally converted into comfortable hotel several years ago. Attractive good-sized rooms, good furnishings, very clean, quality bathroom. Each room named and uniquely furnished. Fine buffet breakfast at very reasonable 9 Euro price. Hotel price reasonable... More

It seems hard to believe that this hotel is only a two-star one. The rooms have a lovely luxurious feel to them, are spacious and representative of the region's traditions. Each room is named after a regional wine, dish or attraction. You begin your hotel experience by entering the old elegant courtyard, climbing the wooden staircase and finding your room... More

The town’s original Gouverneur lived here; central location with stunning courtyard, ramparts on one side, the Old Town on the other. Cosy room, roomy shower and separate WC, free WiFi and free protected and locked garage. Restaurant for buffet breakfast only; many restaurants walking distance in the Old Town. Excellent price for date booked, efficient and friendly service from all... More

We stayed here twice during February to break up the long drive from the UK to Austria. The hotel was easy to find (only 20 minutes from Strasbourg), and the friendly (English speaking) staff made us feel very welcome upon our arrival. The rooms are set around a picturesque courtyard and are beautifully decorated. Both the rooms that we stayed... More

We were here for two nights and it was a great base for exploring Obernai and Strasbourg. The rooms were clean, large and tastefully decorated. It is conveniently located in town and just a 5 minute walk to the train station. By train, it is 30 minutes to Strasbourg. There is a large, free public parking area behind the hotel... More

We enjoyed 3 nights in the Gouverneur hotel in early October. We had the biggest room in the hotel, which was actually a suite with 2 bedrooms, a toilet,and separate bathroom. The bathroom was really not well-laid out at all, with a tiny shower and the sink the was too close to the shower so you couldn't bend over it... More
