“Small, comfortable hotel”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

We stayed in this small, comfortable hotel in 2012. the hotel is located on a quiet side street just across the canal,away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist area. We took Bus 10 from the train station to a stop one block from the hotel. A tram stop also is several blocks away and the walk to the train station takes about 20 minutes.

During our five day stay, all of the staff at the front desk were pleasant and very helpful. On arrival we received a map and plenty of suggestions about places to visit in the city. We were given good suggestions for restaurants and the location of a self-service laundry.

Our reservation indicated that we had a small room, and it was. But the room was neat and clean, with open cabinets for hanging clothes and also shelves. The bed was comfortable. Our room was located at the rear of the hotel and was very quiet ( both day and night). We had a restful sleep with open windows.

The only negative we advise about is the size of the bathroom in a small room. In this small room, the bathroom is equally small and might be an uncomfortable fit for a large person. However, the bathroom was spotlessly clean, had modern facilities, and had adequate light.

Breakfast was an adequate buffet ... better than many other small inns places we have visited in France. The buffet had cereals, some fresh fruit, cheese and meats, and the usual breakfast drinks. In addition, a basket of two croissants and two bread rolls were delivered to our table with coffee and tea.

Adjacent to the breakfast area was a lounge area with a television and several comfortable chairs. The lounge area also had a computer with Internet access and posted charges for its use.

We found this hotel to be well maintained, clean, and comfortable. The hotel staff and owner are very friendly, helpful, and concerned about the comfort of their guests. We were informed in advance of the size of our room when we made our late reservation and that was not a negative for us because we primarily use it only for sleeping. We did notice the hotel has larger rooms with larger bathrooms. We would happily return to stay at this hotel.

This hotel is easily reached by bus from the train station or a short walk from the tram. The main part of Strasbourg is a short walk away. The place is clean and comfortable and even has allergenic rooms available. Great value!

We chanced upon Hotel de l'Ill via another a third party booking site and stayed for one night in late September. The hotel is located a few short minutes from the Notre Dame Cathedral and Petite France.

My room was a single located on the 3rd floor. It had a double bed, was very clean, small (by American standards) but comfortable. The only down side - no elevators.

Breakfast was included - a selection of yogurts, cereals, breads, tea and coffee.

However, the best part of the hotel is it's very friendly staff, who helped us with restaurant recommendations and even how to catch the bus back to the main train station.

Overall, the hotel is well priced and a good value for the money.

2 nights in this hotel based on tripadvisors feed backs.
The hotel is very closed from the historical center of Strasbourg (only the river to cross).
Parking is not so easy, but the Bateliers parking is located 5 mn by feet from the hotel and is not too expensive. Anyway, you will not need a car to visit Strasbourg from the hotel.
Breakfast is pretty basic but OK ... some nice bakeries in the neighbourhood.
Reasonable price for the city.

My room was on the 3rd floor, a single. Very clean, small, but comfortable, with a double bed, great shower. No elevators. Terrific location, 3 minutes walk from Strasbourg Cathedral. Very friendly and helpful staff, gave us a great restaurant recommendation and lent us umbrellas on a rainy night. Room had tv and wireless. Breakfast was not so great, though plentiful--cereals, yoghurt, bread, juices, so-so croissants, so-so coffee. For our second day we went elsewhere for breakfast. Overall a good value for the price!

Room Tip: Wireless doesn't extend to the 3rd floor, so if that's important, either walk down to the lo...

We chanced upon Hotel de l'Ill via another hotel which was booked for our days of stay in December 2010 just after Christmas. We were lucky to find a double room for 3 of us at such short notice.

The hotel is located wonderfully close to the main tourist points in Strasbourg; The Notre Dame Cathedral, Petite France and the main squares- Place de la Republique, Place Kleber, Place Gutenburg especially since all the Christmas Markets were around these places.

The staff is really helpful and gave us wonderful recommendations for must-see places and must-eat dinner places. They also pay great attention to detail; we were pleasantly surprised by a welcome note and welcome cookies upon our arrival and the exact directions on the site to reach the hotel.

The pricing was also most appropriate for the about-peak season considering it took us about calls to 15 hotels before we chanced upon this one.

One point that could be improved was the temperature setting in the room regarding the heater, which got a bit cold one night.

But overall, I'd rate this hotel 8/10 and I sure am looking forward to staying there in summer as well!
