    Historical Traveler Reviews Regent Contades Strasbourg

    Great Hotel

    from

    Strasbourg is really worth going to. One of the nicest cities in France. The hotel was great. We had a superb room at the top of the hotel on the corner with great views of the river and church. The hotel is about a 15min walk from the main centre, but is well worth it! The reception staff were really helpful but we didn't use any ot the other facilities at the hotel so can't comment. But overall, well worth a stay.

    Classic Hotel in good position

    from

    Heard that Strasbourg was worth a visit so booked in for one night. For the price I paid, this is a lovely hotel to base yourself for Strasbourg and surrounding area. The hotel itself is more traditional than modern but is well maintained in the classic style. The bedroom was well-sized with a very modern en-suite bathroom. The added bonus was that the room was on the top floor and as the weather was hot, you could open up the large french windows and leave them open at night. In terms of location, it is pretty ideal with a short walk into the main shopping and eating areas. There is limited parking underneath the hotel but there was space on the road outside and parking is free after 7pm and on Sundays. Well recommended.

    Wonderful hotel gorgeous room in fairytale Strasbourg

    from

    My husband and I have been travelling quite a lot over the last six years through Expedia and the Hotel Regent Contades rates extremely highly on our list of really lovely hotels. We cannot praise the staff, the charming atmosphere of the residence and the beautiful newly decorated room too highly. It was gorgeous, so quiet and restful and superbly designed with every comfort. Because it was Easter we found chocolate bunnies on our pillows every evening which was a sweet and thoughtful touch. We did not have breakfast on this occasion. Situated diagonally opposite a beautiful church steeple and close to the river with weeping willows and cherry trees and within easy walking distance to the centre and the museums the hotel's location made our stay perfection. A very good tram service is also nearby. Strasbourg is a fairytale city only an hour and a half away from London and made a superb five day Easter break. In fact we needed far longer to explore all the nearby villages and indeed sample the superb Alsace cuisine at the multitude of delightful restaurants.

    The Petite France area has a canal running through it with willow trees and beautiful old wooden beamed houses fronting the water and little boats gliding down. Indeed the sister hotel Regent Petite France is a splendid modern hotel facing the canal with an excellent gourmet restaurant and the Regent Contades will provide a return courtesy car to enjoy a beautiful dinner there. The shops are so quaint amidst winding cobble stoned streets and wooden beamed medieval houses with window boxes full of flowers and little Easter wooden rabbits and other decorations which may sound twee but truly enchanting like stepping back into fairyland time. Similarly the restaurants were lovingly decorated and the food wonderful - not heavy Germanic but French with a hint of the German specialities. In particular I can recommend the lovely food and atmosphere at La Petite Alsace and Le Rathsamhausen. We enjoyed drinks in the courtyard of the bar La Table Du Gayot and an amazing apple streudel and coffee (the food looked great too) at Le Baeckeoffe d'alsace but you will discover all these for yourselves. Au Crocodile the famous restaurant was not unfortunately open on the day we were able to visit. The homemade biscuit shop La Cure Gourmande is a tempting delight and a must. We also had a day at the lovely town of nearby Colmar and cannot recommend too highly the restaurant Le Marechal fronting the canal in this romantic and charming hotel. The village of Riquewihr is utterly endearing and full of old word charm and there were many more which of course becon for another time. The museums are fabulous - the Art Moderne rates amongst the best in Europe and has an excellent and reasonable restaurant. The Musee Beaux Arts was superb. I do recommend fellow Trip Advisors to enjoy Regent Contades and all the nearby areas have to offer and hope our findings will be useful.

    Great view and location, needs work!

    from

    I stayed here for one night and we booked two rooms. First of all, the parking situation is not good. The hotel garage was full and we had to fight for street parking. Second, the room smelled badly of paint fumes - enough to give you a migraine. Third, the speakers on the tv were bad. Finally, we could not get hot water for a shower. When we talked to the staff about this they said, "This happens when a lot of people are staying here." I think it is time to get a new hot water heater for the hotel. You pay for a 4-star hotel, you should at least get a hot shower.

    Good choice

    from

    We were there in December. Staff were really helpful and polite. The room always in perfect conditions with beatiful views to the church and the river. In a very strategic situation, very near to the cathedral and well communicated.

    We were very pleased with our election.

    A great choice!

    from

    Just returned from Europe and while we were in France, we stayed at the Regent Contades in Strasbourg. The hotel service was the best I've ever had, just superb. The location was wonderful. It's close to a lot of shops and restaurants. This city was my favorite. The only thing that keeps this hotel from being excellent is the fact that the furniture in the room is outdated and worn. Despite that, I would stay here again.

    Found it great

    from

    I was quite surprised with the last review posted on your site. I go to Strasbourg several times a year and stayed at 6 or 7 different hotels. This was, by far the best one. I found it great, the breakfast was one of the best I have ever had (in a European style, but with great quality pastries, cured meats, etc). My room was nice and had a lovely view. I recommend it warmly.

    What a bad experience....

    from

    I've just returned to a two days trip in Strasbourg and stayed in the Regent Contades which is supposed to be a four stars hotel....In fact, my wife and i had many surprising problems during our stay!

    1-the staff is not professional at all...No smiles, no "hello", no service at all....For sample, we've been waiting 20 mn to have a coffee in the barn, whereas it was quite empty!

    2-the breakfast: here again, we've been waiting half an hour, standing alone, before we had a table for two (in fact, a table for 4, with any other people we didn't know....).The fact is that the breakfast room is very small, no more than 10 tables!! And,of course, no apologize at all!!!

    3-our double room was quite big, the deluxe i mean, but very old, you could hear your neighbours and their tv set.

    4-the barman has to be a barman, but he's also bagagist and many things else...So he does what he can, but he's so alone. The other members of the staff are rude, aboslutly not profesionnal at all!

    5-the "sport area"of the hotel was closed all the time!!

    6-last but not least, another sample:i had to see my mails ont the net, so i asked the reception guy if there was a internet bar,or something like this around the hotel:he answered me but forgot to tell me that there was a Net access on the computer of the hotel....

    Overall a very bad experience: I'm used to travel all over the world, in many four or five stars hotels, and it was one of my worst experience.

    A last precison: I'm....French andi'm ashamed of this kind of french hotels, who are supposed to be luxury and are rubbery.

    Hotel Regent Contades

    from

    Well located and well priced, this hotel was very charming and had a really superb staff. We brought our two dgs with us and there was no problem, althugh there was a charge. The hotel has a very comfortable lobby bar and although it is in need of updating in the rooms, the value for money was great.

    ... was a superstar! We were really starting to stress but she made it all so much understandable and accessible. We agreed another chat at tomorrow at 10am. Just as well we extended our stay at the chalet! We then cycled to Freudenstadt. It was a mere 6 mile roundtrip but a hill fest there and a mini hill fest back in hot sun so a troublesome couple of chicken breasts and beers! (Mum and dad will vouch for the hilly terrain!)

    Up early for our drive to the VW Garage. We spoke to Herr Soufflé and agreed to return in a couple of hours for the diagnosis. A good run for Prego then a cafe stop for us before a return to the garage for the verdict. Herr Soufflé said they need to keep the van for 24 hours but all would be good for approx 300 Euros. We agreed and set off back to the ...

    ... for us. A true gent.

    Back to Herman for a good nights sleep and early trip to supermarket next morning. The earlier evening I had lost the key to the toilet block and we had thought that was that. But on return from the supermarket we saw it glinting in the sun on the path just near our pitch. Our luck was in. Or should I say my luck, We could now use the toilet block for our more .... how shall I put it, .... lengthy requirements. For those of you out there not familiar ...
