Does anyone have a suggestion for a hotel in Strasbourg? Have you stayed at the Hotel du Dragon? We are going to the Christmas Markets.
We stayed at Hotel Cathedrale when we went to the Christmas markets. It was very nice, the staff were fantastic and the location is as the name suggests in front of the cathedral so very centrally located for the Christmas markets. It is also very close to the tourist info office. My luggage did not arrive with me after my flight from the US and the hotel staff voluntarily checked daily with the airline to try to help me locate my missing bag. Strasbourg was our favorite Christmas market. The Christmas decorations throughout the area are beautiful. I hope you also do a day trip to Colmar which is also a wonderful Christmas market.
In 2015, we stayed at the Hotel Hannong. An easy walk from the train station, and an easy walk to the Cathedral. The staff was friendly and helpful - this was the rare hotel that "felt" more expensive than it actually was.
We stayed at the Hotel Gutenburg Dec, 2019. They had gluhwein and gingerbread in the lobby all day, after 11:00am. Breakfast was adequate but served the creamiest scramble eggs I have ever eaten. It's right off the main plaza. I really support the plan to pay a little more for a hotel in the old town area, and then save money by eating your meals at the xmas markets. We did the VinoRoute all-day wine tour which took us to Colmar, among other charming small towns.
So jealous- have a great time!
Thank you all for your responses and suggestions. I know we will have a great time!
Check out l'Hôtel & Spa Le Bouclier d'Or in Strasbourg. Perfect setting, staff, breakfast, and location,
We stayed last month at Hotel Suisse Strasbourg. It was wonderful. The women who ran it were extremely kind and helpful (called a dr for me) and their breakfast spread- wow is all I have to say. We don’t usually take hotel breakfast but we did this time and omg. Homemade sourdough breads, including GF, homemade yogurts, meats galore, even more cheeses, warm pastries, pots of coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice. I know these sound like common offerings but believe me, they were not. Very comfortable room at great price too and we could see the cathedral from our room
We stayed at the du Dragon, but it was over fifteen years ago. We liked it a lot, although our room may have had an extra staircase because it was (glamorously) in the attic? I vaguely think they may have had parking, because we drove to a Michelin 3-star in Ill (Eye-El-El) the night before we drove on to Alsace and then Avignon.
