Booked the hotel on the web for two night stop over on between Lake Como and Paris, got a good rate by the way. Arrived late in the evening due to traffic and weather issues in Switzerland so not able to get into the secure parking that had been booked in advance, the car was put just outside the front door and then moved the next morning, great service and no charge made for the first day's parking. Relating this story to show how adaptable and customer friendly the staff are at the hotel. The interior of the building is a mix of grand and modern, the rooms clearly have been modernised (tastefully) and I agree with other reviewers that the tea/coffee making and iron etc are missing but this is not uncommon in continental hotels. Eat outside the hotel due to the hectic sightseeing agenda and the close proximity of the hotel to the eateries, shops and places of interest.
Breakfast - seems a little expensive at €20 but was tempted on the last morning and it was really worth it, the food on offer was great in variety and quality, tried a little of all the breads and pastries and found them all to be excellent, big favourite was the local confiture (jam) which was also available to buy at the reception so went home with a different sourvenier of the trip.
Strasbourg is a beautiful and interesting place well worth a second visit and this hotel will be seeing me again as I felt it provided all that is required.
