We made it back to Triberg without it raining and looked around the plentiful tourist traps selling Black Forest wares.

After stocking up on essentials we head back for a leisurely lunch and an afternoon trip to the old town of Haslach.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Regent Petite France Strasbourg
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.
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.
