We just spent three wonderful days at Hotel la Diligence in Obernai in room 331. The room was huge with a fireplace (not sure if it worked or not) in the room's foyer area. The bed was large and comfortable, the room was very clean and well stocked, the bathroom was super clean albeit a bit small but fine, reception personnel super helpful and friendly, and breakfast (a little over Euro 8 per person per day) was very good. The room had a superb view of the main square, belfry, hotel de ville, and so, so many 1/2 timbered houses around the square. Many other reviewers have whined about the church bells... I guess they've forgotten this is EUROPE where the churches have bells. Sure, we heard the bells but they didn't bother our sleep in the least and as the whiners have mentioned, they do stop between midnight and 0700. Overall, this is one of the better 2-stars we've stayed at in France. Don't waste money on the paid hotel parking as metered and free street parking is available all over the town within a 5 minute walk. And, the meters are free between 1900-0900 anyways. We used Obernai as a base (we've visited Obernai previously) to explore other parts of Alsace so we didn't park in the town all day long. But free parking, I assure you, is plentiful (I did that on our day of arrival without problem). Obernai is a small town easily walkable in a couple hours and does make a good base to explore the region, then come back for dinner. Without a doubt, we'll return. I've already booked again for next April. Spend the few extra Euro for one of the larger rooms (we did). It is well worth the room and views of the old town.
