Firstly, this hotel is very well located, close to the central train station and to the city center. Therefore, there are great connections for international travelers (train to the Strasbourg airport, Lufthansa bus station for Frankfurt and the Air France TGV for C. de Gaulle) but also for in-town trips (three different tram lines near-by).
The hotel looks newly refurbished, although the plastic modern style is not one of my favorite. My booked room was not ready when I arrived (around noon) and instead of being asked to wait for a bit, right away I was given another room, a "special one": "the woman room" (there are official pictures of it here). At first I went wow!. There is a huge round bathtub (the bath is inside the room), a round bed, a TV set inserted in a mirror and so on and the room is quite big as well. But after a while, it started to give me a headache, as there are no windows, only artificial lights. So, if you have to work (and they do have free wi-fi) get out of the room, it is not one for spending part of the day in it. It also becomes problematic if you have a warm bath due to steam and ventilation. If you leave the room after you bathe, better ask for a second electronic key to keep the ventilation running.
Also avoid this room if you are a chaste one or really allergic to tacky stuff. The design includes dildos in a furry wall. And other surprise such as a pink tool set in the closet (which actually came in handy when unable to find a bottle opener).
As a plus for women there are several types of hair brushes in the room, besides the classic hair dryer.
Overall, it was an interesting and comfortable stay, although I would not pick the same room for a second time.
