“Well situated for walking in Strasbourg”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Our visit of 4 days in Strasbourg was enhanced by our stay at the Hotel Gutenberg, just off the square by that name in the center of town. The typically small European room was comfortable and very quiet. The staff were all helpful and pleasant, making restaurant reservations and recommendations. The breakfast buffet was the best we have encountered with all manner of breads, pastries, fruits, cereals, meats, cheeses and other items in abundance. This is a delightful hotel in a beautiful city!

The triple paned windows in this room cut out all of the street noise, and the view of the cathedral from the window was a great touch! But what really made the stay wonderful was the breakfast that was filled with all sorts of local treats. This was a great value in Strasbourg at a super location!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the cathedral!

The hotel is very modern and located in the center of town. The underground public parking is quite difficult to navigate. We had a privilege room and loved it. Bathroom was really nice and everything was really clean. Breakfast buffet was really good.

Room Tip: Get a Privilege room if you can; a good deal more room and avoids the "attic" space where...

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel. The front desk staff were very accomodating when we asked to change our room after the first night due to excessive street noise. They put us in a larger room in a much quieter location with no problems. The rooms are equipped with flat screen tvs with a good selection of channels, free wi-fi, room safe, good bed and nicely appointed bathroom. The location is 1/2 block from Gutenberg plaza which has many restaurants and a pretty merry go round. This hotel is very good value for the price and about 2 blocks from the modern tram which takes you to the train station in about 10 minutes. There is a TGV train taking 2.5 hours to Paris from which we connect to the Eurostar back to London.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the front of the hotel are apt to be noisy, especially on weekend nights as the pubs in...

Dear guests,

Thank you for your review.
We are pleased to know that you had a nice stay in our establishment.
Our hotel is appreciated for the nice location in the city center. The famous Cathedral and the old city “Petite-France” are close to the hotel.
You find the train station at 15 minutes walking distance or at 6 minutes with the tram. The reception team is at your disposal to bring you the best during your stay. You had a good idea to ask to the receptionist if it was possible to change your room for a quiet one.

Looking forward to seeing you.

Overall, very satisfied with the hotel. The price is very good. The service / staff all excellent. The room (Privilge) was perfect - quite large, seemed like new, separate bathroom and toilet.

Nice 'chic boutique' look and feel to the hotel (but without the snooty attitiude that can sometimes go with such hotels).

Great location - right in the center of town, cathedral 2 mins away. Great base from where to base your touristic operations.

Breakfast space is a bit small, but that inconvenience is compensated by the fact that all of the ingredients / produce are fresh and local.

A small touch which I really liked : when we came down for breakfast (a little late) my wife saw that the plate for the local speciality (kougloffe) was empty. When she asked is there was any left the staff member informed us politely that unfortunately it was all gone (it's a popular item at breakfast). We said no problem but the staff member insisted on taking our room number and promising to put aside some for us for the following mornings breakfast.

As suggested in the title of my review - we had a street front room. On night 1 there was quite a bit of noise made by the nightowls returning home with a few beers on board.

If you are a light sleeper, perhaps best to ask for room on the inside of the hotel.

Room Tip: See my comment regarding street front room being a little noisy.

Hôtel Gutenberg is a boutique hotel that offers tiny but clean and well-equipped rooms that are just a couple of minutes away from the Cathédrale. It does not score full 5 points in every aspect, but we consider the overall combination, coupled with very competitive rates, to be worthy of 4.5 points, and certainly better than many “very good” hotels that we have given 4 points in TripAdvisor.

This hotel is located on a small, relatively quiet street next to Place Gutenberg, a square that is just a small block away from the famous Cathédrale. This central location means that all the sights in the main island, from Barrage Vauban and Petite France to Opera du Rhin and Palais Rohan, are within walking distance. The shopping streets of Rue des Francs Bourgeois, Grand’ Rue, and Rue des Grandes Arcades are all close-by, and the train station (Gare SNCF) is 15-minutes of walk away. In short, the location is ideal for sightseeing, unless the focus of the visit is those European Union institutions to the northeast.

Our room was, yes, tiny, and the bed was a full-size one, not a queen. Great for sleeping in pharaoh pose. We were pleasantly surprised, however, by the surprisingly large array of quality amenities. Most everything expected from higher-grade chain hotels can be found. They even have indoor slippers, a rarity in a mid-range European hotel. And the quality of those amenities, like shampoo and such, is well above the mediocre stuff stocked at most other lodgings of this price range. The room was very well insulated and warm, and exceptionally clean. Perhaps this is because Gutenberg belongs to the Hôtels et Résidences Diana, a group of Alsatian and Swiss hotels that seem to be managed together.

The front desk staffs we met were very friendly. The receptionist upon our arrival spoke heavily accented English, but managed to check us in smoothly and provided us a city map as well as tips on nice local restaurants. The two ladies on our check-out day spoke fluent English, courteous, and efficient. The hotel has a dedicated baggage storage room for keeping bags in case guests would like to explore the city for a while after the check-out, which is a nice plus.

To summarize, Hôtel Gutenberg offers excellent location, friendly service, and clean and well-maintained rooms, all at very attractive price. The room is tiny, but we would gladly accept this single drawback for the very competitive price-performance ratio. We do recommend this well-managed boutique hotel to all budget-conscious travelers to Strasbourg.

Dear guests,

Thank you for taking the time to write a summary of your stay in our hotel.
Our location is very convenient because you can visit the main famous places on foot. Each of our Privilege room is unique and decorated differently. In Privilege rooms you find a pair of slippers, a bottle of water, a kettle and a range of welcome products.
Our receptionist team adapts to its customers and speaks several languages like English. You can contact us to book another stay. We will give you a larger room with a bed of 1.60m.

Looking forward to welcoming you soon

Very good hotel where we stayed a couple of nights for the Easter break.
Belongs to a small hotel chain of the area - we actually stayed in another hotel of the group in Colmar.
Location is very central. The room was spacious, very clean and recently refurbished with a couple a fine painting by a modern artist we like very much, Jerome Mesnager.
The very central location of the hotel makes it possibly noisy at night at week-end as there are quite a few pubs in the area.
The breakfast buffet is good though the breakfast area is quite small.
