Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Hannong Strasbourg
Great place to stay
My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Hannong and had a wonderful stay. The hotel is situated in the heart of Strasbourg, 5 minute walk from Petite France (The old part of the city).
The room was very clean and had everything you would need for a comfortable stay. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and gave us some great recomendations on places to visit and where to eat (Maison Kammerzell is a great restaurant, next to the cathedral).
We would definately go back to this Hotel.
A nice place to stay.
I don't know much about hotel rooms in Europe, so all I can compare it to is hotel rooms in the US. I stayed there 4 nights. The room I had was very small (like their cars!) but very clean. The king bed was comfortable. The room had a very small TV on an L-shaped table in the corner of the room with 1 chair. There was just enough room to walk between the table and the corner of the bed, and between the end of the bed and the wall. Their was an armoire, and that's everything. The small bathroom has a 2 prong 120V outlet on the hair dryer base you can plug into. My room was quiet, no complaints there. The location is very good, as was the breakfast every morning. I have no idea how much this room cost, as I never saw the bill (my host picked this hotel and paid for it).
The Golden Tulip/Hotel Hannong
We stayed at the Golden Tulip (aka HANNONG HOTEL) in Strasbourgh for two nights recently. My overall impression was somewhat negative. The hotel was apparently being rennovated at the time of our stay. We assumed this because of the electric wires hanging from a gaping hole in the ceiling of our room's hallway and the construction workers hammering during the day. However, no mention or pardon was asked of us by the staff! Also, as stated by an earlier reviewer, the walls were extremely thin at this hotel, leading to difficulty sleeping for light sleepers such as myself. Additionally, a flock of pigeons gathered outside our window each morning at 6:00 AM and began to squawk loudly.
I understand that isn't the hotels fault really, but it was unpleasant nonetheless.The room itself was on the 1st floor. It was the smallest we ever stayed in, got very little sunlight, and had no cross ventilation or A/C (no A/C despite claims on various websites that rooms are indeed air conditioned!). We were there in July and the room was so hot, with scarcly any relief from opening the window. I could hardly sleep at night. The bathroom was so small you could barely turn around in it.Despite this, there were some positives: the room and bathroom were really clean and had tasteful, modern furnishings. Staff were friendly and helpful. The location was prime (within 5 min walk) to the train station as well as sights and attractions. The hotel is relatively affordable.
Typical European Hotels
I like the fact that I am able to read reviews from 'Real Visitors' on this website rather than hotel critics. The hotel has been renovated in the past few years and the rooms were quite nice but very small. I realize that I was staying in a 3 star hotel so I wasn't expecting 5 star treatment. Every European hotel I have every stayed at, and I have stayed in some very nice ones, have walls made of cardboard. I swear you can hear everything that goes on above you and both sides as well. So be prepared to bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper like me. My husband can sleep through a tornado, so it doesn't bother him. Also it seems that many people do not know how to close a door quietly without slamming it shut. However, I will say that for the money, the hotel and the staff were very nice and friendly.
Five Star Quality
This hotel was wonderful! It was located in a great area of Strasbourg. Our room was enormous (even compared to US standards) and filled with antique furniture. We also had a huge bathroom with a large bathtub. Everything was immaculate. The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. They recommended wonderful restaurants to us. My only complaint was the smell of smoke that came through the vents. I recommend this hotel to anyone who visits Strasbourg!

At breakfast this morning we met 4 New Zealanders who were also supposed to be on our cruise, we swapped stories of how we were filling in the time of our trip. Three of the 4 have been away since April.
On returning to the room, I realised that my filling in my tooth had fallen out, bummer! I will have to wait till I get to Berlin to …
... town. Next we visited the Faberge museum and this was fantastic. We had a girl from Russia explain the collection. It all belongs to a wealthy Russian (VERY wealthy) And he houses it in Baden Baden because it is more secure there. I cannot imagine what it all would be worth. Unfortunately we could not take any photos. Had another hour or two in the thermal spa then relaxed dinner at an Italian restaurant. Love ...
Reluctantly left Gengenbach today and drove firstly to Freudenstadt where we had a coffee, then took the B500 to Baden-Baden. This is reputedly one of the prettiest drives in Germany and it was fantastic because we crossed one of the many mountain ranges of the Black Forest. Spectacular views over beautiful valleys. As soon as we arrived ...
... hot mist. It took a few seconds to adjust to softly lit room. You grabbed some little rubber mats and sat in one of the beautifully tiled areas and listened to some lovely music. Talking was "verboten".
From the aroma therapy spa it was off to plunge in alternating hot and freezing cold "grottos" that made your skin tingle. James checked out the sauna area while I returned to the outside pool. There was one area that was like jumping into ...
... t worked out how they can be so popular. Then German sausages for lunch - Andrew will look like one before we leave. It was then on to an outdoor museum which I thought might be interesting. It showed the chalets and how they lived "in the old days"!! OK but that's all. Next we went to see the ruins of an old castle that Andrew thought would ...
