The hotel is well located in the old town, a short walk to the Musée d'Art Moderne et Contemporaine, but not so near the main attractions of the cathedral and the Palais de Rohan. It is situated on a canal, which makes for a pleasant setting as do the surrounding, quaint buildings. The hotel has had a modern fit out and a new wellness centre is due in December 2013 (we missed it). The rooms are spacious and modern. The wifi is free and of reasonable reliability. If you are having breakfast in the room, then I recommend going down to the buffet. We had breakfast in the room one day (which we generally prefer) and in the dining room the other. In the room, for €46, we got two small bread rolls each, a miniature croissant and a miniature vienoisserie, a small glass of orange juice and a hot drink. Apparently to have fruit would have been an extra €5 each. The buffet had more on offer and the quality was good. The front desk staff were very good to us and went above and beyond the call of duty by calling lots of restaurants when we were struggling to make bookings. Their restaurant recommendations were good. Book ahead if you want one of the better-rated Strasbourg restaurants on Saturday night and be prepared for most places to be closed on Sunday night.
