Worth the extra $
Stayed here for one night at the beginning of our Alsace trip, and one night at the end of our Alsace trip. Service and rooms were fabulous, especially room size and view for the $, compared to other hotels in Europe. Very nice atmosphere without being snobby. For one of the nights we stayed in a deluxe room which had an excellent view of the Ill River. The location is also great, and walkable to everything. Staff went out of their way to be friendly, and to respond to our needs (ie: we forgot a European electrical adaptor, asked the front desk where we could go and buy one...and they presented us with a box of dozens that had been left behind --we could help ourselves). Bellman went out of his way to recomment restaurants, etc in the area. We'd definitely go back to both Strasbourg and this hotel!
A special hotel
An Excellent hotel in a beautiful location close to lots of great restaurants and shops. We had a deluxe room with two walkout window/doors onto a beautiful balcony over the river Ill. The room is huge with a king size bed and separate bath from the toilet. All amenities that you would expect from a 4 star hotel including airconditioning and very nice breakfast,even with scrambled eggs and sausages! I got my best deal at the time on the web site (---),but you can also write them directly and get a great deal. The web site gave me the price with everything including taxes and fees and there were no surprises when we paid as we left.
Best Hotel in Strasbourg
I've come to Strasbourg on business many times and stayed in many of its hotels, but indeed none compares to this lovely hotel in the historical centre of Strasbourg, near the World Heritage area of Petite France. Every room is different and the service is really friendly. For eating I recommend the many restaurants around the hotel, most of which predate the 16th century.
Best in town.
We stayed in this hotel recently and were very pleased with our experience. After a little confusion about our reservation, the general manager gave us what must have been one of the better rooms because it was very large with a separate seating area and had many windows with amazing views of the river and the locks. It is very well situated within walking distance to almost everything in town and offers very convenient valet parking in a city with a bit of a parking problem. Room service and the restaurant are standard for France (i.e fabulous compared to anywhere else!), but, this town has so many great restaurants anyway. It's, clearly, the best place in town.
Fabulous hotel. Request room above running water bridge
After our cramped, but nice hotel room in Paris, the Regent Petite France was a revelation. Our deluxe queen room was just that -- deluxe. The room was almost as big as the whole first floor of our 3 star hotel in Paris! The bathrooms have many amenities (heated towel rack, lots of toiletries, hairdryer, magnifying mirror, two sinks, etc.) and the bed was to die for...very comfortable with fitted sheets above and below the top blanket. The hotel staff was wonderfully helpful; setting up dinner reservations and taxi service. We went through Expedia and got a VERY good rate on this hotel. Thankfully, Strasbourg is not as heavily traveled as some other destinations in France, but I can unequivocally say that it is one of the more beautiful...particularly the old city region.
A modern hotel in a great location, restaurant good bedrooms a bit "trying too hard" but all in all I would recommed this hotel if your in Strasbourg
The best hotel to stay in in Strassbourg
Contrary to Frommers, who rated the Hilton as the best htel, I think The Regent Petit France easily outclasses it. I have stayed at the Hilton, the Sofitel and various others but would take the Regent always as first preference (but sometimes it's full due to EC meetings if I can't book early enough). I noted however that the service in the weekends, when staying there privately, seems to be a lit less than during the week. Rooms are really wonderful and always a suprise in terms of decoration and art.
Just returned from 3 nights at the Regent Petite France. It is located in the heart of the Petite France region of the city, which we found absolutely charming. Particularly liked the hanging flower baskets on many window ledges and even canal railings. The hotel staff was generally very helpful and courteous. Rooms vary considerably, but our 2 rooms (the bottom category) were fairly large and quite comfortable.
The restaurant had limited fare and was quite costly, but there is no shortage of nice restaurants in the immediate vicinity. The breakfast buffet that was included in the price was adequate -- nothing fancy. On nice days you can take a book onto the beautiful 2nd-floor terrace. The Cathedral is roughly a 10-15 minute walk.

... us at plus 200kmh. We are having final drinks tonight so back in the car and off to find a shop. We find a drink market with local wines. We select a wine not knowing what it will be like. Girls decide that we should have some nibblies so we stumble across a second supermarket which has two separate buildings. The first for alcohol and the second for food. The alcohol section is huge and even had a selection of Australian ...
... a Saturday was quite amazing. This continued through the whole city and the roads were not jam packed with cars making the ambience much better.
There are plenty of the usual shopping areas but parks, green spaces and riverside quays abound. We decided to take the boat trip (approx 70 mins) which takes you round the old city, up to the area of the European Parliament and Court of Human Rights (how we love them ...
... a district of France for shopping prices, lets start a petition NOW!
Obernai is an attractive town, it seems that, being close to the border, there is a strong German influence and the market places reminded us of Butzbach but the drinks prices in the cafe we chose were very out of step so they won't be getting our custom again.
It was pasta bake for tea, made by (wait for it) the Homepride Flour Grader with a little help from me. ...
... beers were given out. First time we have ever seen beer being given away in a market environment and Peter said it was a nice draught. The guide book told us that a visit to Bühlerhöhe which is an exclusive hotel was the "place" to see. Apparently it stands at an altitude of 800 metres amongst he forest with views over the Rhine plains. We drive there, parked, walked and then told by a lovely German couple that the gates were locked and ...
... so French-y, and I liked looking at the pastries in particular. There's this part of the city that's called Petite-France, originally slaughter houses & tanning-houses. Hence the roofs were really big so as to increase the surface area to dry the skins. Walked around for a bit then had lunch by the canals which was pretty ...
