The hotel is very good located, few minutes from Weberplatz (or Place Wéber), which by itself did not appeal to me. Place Gutenberg is way more beautiful with the Cathedrale just in front, many cafes, a manège and old houses.
The service at Hotel Hannong is also good. The lady on the front-desk was friendly and spoke some good German, which is unfortunately a rarity in Alsace. What I like the most are the rooms, the hallways and the decoration of the hotel, meaning the physical part of the hotel which is modernly old and charming. Only negative part is the view from the window on the backyard where there was many apartments. I was there when it was very hot, so people from those houses were sitting outside which was kind of loud, adding to it the noise of the generator of the hotel... NOT nice at all if you decide to open the window. If closed, you hear almost nothing.
Other downside is that the online booking is a mess. What they do is that freeze the amount on the credit card but you have to pay cash or by credit card. So if you decide to pay by credit card, lets say 70 EUR (which was my case), 70Eur will be deducted from your balance and ANOTHER 70EUR freezed (until many weeks later). This is not convenient at all, its like double the amount is being used. Nothing to worry about. They did not do any mistake but just be careful.
CONCLUSION:Everything is good, but nothing special except maybe the first impression of the internal decoration (wood and paintings). I enjoyed my stay and can recommend it, though preferably for only one to two nights.
Strasbourg is very beautiful but the people not kind at all, lets say they are arrogant. Other than refusing to speak German (meaning that they do not care having that special French- German background!), they are not helpful if it happens you want to ask them something. Too sad.. Anyways I find it good that Alsace- Lorraine does not belong anymore to Germany, it would be a shame for Germany's people friendly reputation.
