We just spent two nights/full day in Colmar following a Tour du Mont Blanc hike. We are flying home from Frankfurt and stopped in Colmar on the way as I have always wanted to see it. Colmar is a lovely, relaxing town well worth a stop, particularly if you want to wind down from hectic sightseeing.
I highly recommend our lodging, the Terrace Apartment at Reflets Sur La Lauch.
You can also book it on booking.com and there are more photos there.
They have five apartments from which to choose, all in the same building right on the canal in Petite Venise. The Terrace apartment is on the first floor and has a direct view across the canal to some of the most charming houses of Little Venice. (My husband dubbed them “impossibly cute”.). The Balcony apartment is higher up and the balcony runs perpendicular to the canal, so you are looking more at the bridge but have a sideways view of the buildings. The three other apartments have no outside space but still good views.
The apartment itself is lovely and very modern. Ours had a black-and-white color scheme with some very clever lighting. The kitchen is spotless and seemingly brand new, well-equipped for cooking if you like (we do). Dishwasher, microwave, Nespresso machine, etc. The separate bedroom has a large (French “king” size) and comfortable. Bed. The walk-in shower is easy to control and has great water pressure. There is a clothes washer in the building for guest use, although we did not need it.
The manager, Marie, met us at the station and drove us to the house to show us around and hand over the keys. We walked back to the station upon departure; it is an easy 10-minute walk with luggage.
I highly recommend this as a nice place to stay in Colmar.
