We recently spent a couple nights at Le Petit Schelishans and found it delightful.
The location is ideal--a short ride from Strasbourg's city center, with public transportation nearby.
Two of us stayed in the Emerence room, the third in the room above, where a hallway-placed telescope offers a closeup view of the stork's nest perched on the nearby church. The rooms are expertly decorated with with lovely antiques, comfortable beds and furniture, up-to-date bathrooms, and a scattering of whimsical local art.
The well-kept grounds include a spacious gazebo, outfitted with tables and chairs, as well as a wrought-iron table-&-chair set--all comfortably arranged for guests' enjoyment. Ideal to relax with a good book and a glass of wine or cup of tea.
The breakfast room holds several tables with side-trays, and breakfast was a treat, with delicious coffee, an assortment of teas, cereals, yogurt, croissants and a variety of freshly-baked breads. Eggs, cheese, and ham are available for any who want them (just say the word), but we found them unnecessary given the other more-than-generous offerings. Cold drinks are available throughout the day. We found the room, outfitted with guides and maps, a pleasant spot for planning our travels.
Owner Paul was a gracious host, making us at home and sharing interesting stories of the inn. We are particularly grateful to Sabine, who worked with us and our very limited language skills to make a last-minute reservation where the accommodations and the bill could not have been more to our liking.
We look forward to returning to Alsace, and to another stay at Le Petit Schelishans.
