We visited Obernai and decided on the spot to spend a night there – so we entered the first hotel we came upon – and it happened to be La Diligence, as it is in the main town square. They had two proposals for accommodating a party of 3 – either a 3 bed room in the main building, or a two bedroom setting in an annex 100 m. from the hotel. As we preferred separate rooms, we took the offer in what is called "Cour Baegert", also a typical building, located behind the hotel, on the other side of the public parking. The distance is truly not an issue, as everything within the city walls is central – you can actually cross the old city in 10 minutes.
Parking: The Cour Baegert has an inner courtyard and you can park your car there – for an additional fee (I believe is 9 euro per day). However, given the short distances, you can simply drop off your luggage and park your car at one of the two big free parking places just outside the city walls (both within 5 min. walk from city center and the hotel).
Room: We had a room with two separate bedrooms, one big one slightly smaller. The big one had a big wardrobe and a flat-screen tv. Both are facing the street and the public parking. My mom said she could hear the cars passing by on the cobblestone, but me and my daughter didn't notice it – so I guess it depends on how sensitive or tired you are ;)
Our room (number 15) was on the first floor and surprisingly there is an elevator. The bathroom is large, and has a good size bathtub. Also there is free wifi, you need to ask the code at the reception. The downside? The wifi signal was quite weak at times. Also, there is no wardrobe in the smaller bedroom – but there is a big wardrobe in the lobby, just next to the door. All in all, this is a two star accommodation, simple but clean and in a great location for visiting Obernai.
For 8,70 euro per person (free for the kids) we had breakfast at the hotel, and we found it a good value for money. Only cold breakfast but quite a large selection of meat and cheese, and different types of pastries. And delicious bred rolls!
