We are planning on spending a couple of nights in Strasbourg to go to the Christmas Markets, and need recommendations for a hotel. We will be arriving via train and would like to be centrally located. Probably going to do a day trip to Colmar as well. Recommendations would be appreciated.
We stayed in Residence Hoteliere Louise December 2017 -- it's a student residence (mini-kitchen, with breakfasts available) but the students seemed to be home for Christmas break. Walked to the markets and Cathedral, even walked to the train station. For the frugal traveler.
Ibis/Mercure hotels right across from the train station.
I'm sure others can give you more upscale recommendations.
I stayed at the Hotel Rohan near the Cathedral square. Nice accommodations, reasonably priced, good restaurant and convenient to touring the old town. Easy 10-15 minute walk from the train station. For a great lunch, make reservations at Porcus, 6 Place du Temple Neuf. Great Alsatian specialties.
