Hotel Royal Lutetia
Ranked #65 of 130 Hotels in Strasbourg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 June 2010

Based on Trip Advisor’s recommendations (thanks so much TripAdvisor.com for this new category) for a budget place to stay in Strasbourg, we chose this one and are very glad we did for our 2 night stay (27-29 May 2010). My friend and I were in Room #51, and my cousin was in Room #34. The only, but very minor, negative was that there was no safe. They would keep things for you, but I left my computer in the room and it was there with everything else when we returned. The room had 2 twin beds, tv, and nice sized bathroom with tub/shower. There was a separate room with the toilet which is nice to have if more than 1 person is in room. The room was high enough to get a great view of the city. I could see the cathedral spire from our room. Shampoo/soap was provided. They had other amenities for sale such as toothbrush, shower cap, etc., if needed. Rembember, it is a budget hotel but one of the best budget hotels ever in my opinion. Hotel was very quiet even with windows opened. Breakfast was on the 1st floor in a very nice, charming room and was very good. There were boiled eggs (as well as uncooked ones to poach) plus some sliced meats, lots of different cheeses, breads, a coffee/chocolate machine, juices, and more. Everything was kept well stocked, and the lady serving was so very kind. The people at the front desk were very welcoming and stored our luggage a few hours the last day. Again, even though no safe, everything was untouched. The free wifi worked fantastically and was very well appreciated and used several times.
Another great thing about this hotel was its location-less than a kilometer from the old city but much quieter and less crowded. If there are 2 or 3 in your group, be sure to buy a TRIO pass. It’s good for up to 3 persons for 24 hours and costs just over 5 euros for all not per each person! We bought one for both days. It’s good on the trams and busses. Be sure to validate each time used! Bus #10 is perfect for this hotel. Bus #10 circles the main, historic downtown area and the stop Vosges-Oberlin is less than 50 meters from the hotel. #10 goes directly from the train station to the hotel. You can also take it to the area where the boats depart for the city boat tour which is just south of the cathedral. Very convenient and handy to hotel and only makes the hotel location more perfect. Why stay in the hustle/bustle, when you can stay in a hotel that’s quiet and quaint with such easy access to everything and has the nicest, friendliest, and most helpful staff one could desire?
I definitely will inquire about staying here on a future trip to Strasbourg. The price plus the comfort of the hotel can’t be beat. The #10 bus makes the location a big plus. We took the train to Colmar for the day-not as good as Rick Steves makes it sound. Strasbourg is much better, and Colmar isn’t as small as I thought. Kronenbourg brewery tour is fun and is an easy walk from Tram Line A which connects with #10 bus at the train station stop. You can even take the bus to Kehl, Germany, with your TRIO pass, but we didn’t see any great places to eat as we walked for about 20 minutes through a pedestrian area-most were closed, but it’s fun to say we rode a city bus to Germany from France!
To sum up: This was the best hotel on this trip to France and one of the top 5 in my 20 plus trips to France. I really enjoyed Strasbourg (except they serve sauerkraut with almost every meal) and hope to return in the next few years –this was my 1st visit but won’t be my last. There will not be one doubt as to my first choice of hotel-the Hotel Royal Lutetia.

We (my husband and my 5 month old son) stayed at Lutetia on April 24th, 2010. It is located literally 10 minutes away from the old town. Once we arrived, Stéphanie at the reception welcomed us with a great smile. She was very helpful as we had a baby. Our room was two times larger than a standard hotel room which was great with all baby stuff that we had. Very clean room, friendly hotel stuff and quiet environment. This hotel deserves absolutely more than 2 star.

I booked this at the last minute and paid a bit more than I would normally but it was worth every penny. I was upgraded to a superior room and entered a light bright sunny yellow clad room with 3 beds. It feels like it has been re-done recently as all seems pretty up to date. Reception staff especially Katy (or was it Kathy?) were very friendly and helpful. Free internet if you have your own pc with you.

I never normally look so far down the list of hotels but i was glad I did. The hotel is located 10 mins walk from the centre. The checkin was very basic, hello, there is your key and a smile...thats all I need though. The room was very spacious, a nice flat screen TV, plenty storage, clean and quiet. The bathroom was particularly nice and was easily finished to a 4 star standard!
Breakfast was VERY nice, a great selection, a very nice breakfast room etc, again, 3 or 4 star service.
Negative points
- We were not told when/where breakfast was served but thats no big deal . We didn't ask, we heard the heels walking around the wooden breaksfast floor from 7am but we were awake anyway.

The price was very good compared to others, I hope they don't become too popular and put their prices up, I look forward to another short break in spring.

The hotels in Strasbourg are of an amazing quality. Both hotels we stayed in (Hotel Royal Lutétia & Cap Europe) provided high quality including even a flatscreen TV set with a selection of international channels. Especially the first hotel was of an amazing quality with a king-size bed and a complete mirror wall. Neither in Germany nor any other country I have found such high standards in an actual 2* Hotel.

This is an unprepossessing two star on the edge of central Strasbourg, a ten minute walk to anywhere interesting. Yet I wouldn't stay anywhere else. I've been back twice, I think it's so good. Booked it on Skoosh both times. It's small, friendly, the bedrooms are large, immaculate, nicely furnished and very comfortable. The bathrooms are fresh, clean and lovely. Breakfast is great, and they've just installed a beautiful new breakfast room. An excellent find - until now, a well-kept secret.
