Location is good (right in the centre of Strasbourg), service was good overall and beds are extremely comfortable.
However, there were a few odd detail issues in the room we stayed in (a Superior room).
If the shower fitting was turned so that it was straight out of the wall (into the bath, where one would expect to have a shower), the showerhead would slide straight down to the bottom- one would either have to shower crouched in the bottom of the bath, or angle the fitting so that the water was spraying against the wall.
The desk lamp had a powerpoint built into it, which was a good idea. However, if you turned off the lights at night, this would also switch off the powerpoint in the lamp, meaning that nothing would charge (to keep the powerpoint on, a wall light in the bedroom would also have to stay on).
The housekeeping staff appeared to have forgotten things in the room while cleaning on both nights of our stay (a bag of linen, and a cloth next to the basin).
The Bose sound system had no 'Lightning' connector for newer Apple devices, and didn't seem to pick up radio stations very well- it looked like the external FM antenna was perhaps not connected? The TV also occasionally switched itself on randomly (possibly responding to the Bose remote?).
As a result, while the room was certainly OK, there are probably better places to stay in Strasbourg.
