The Hôtel Suisse in Strasbourg is a two-star hotel located in Strasbourg city center. At first, I got to know it with its coffee shop the Café Suisse, that I mentioned in my article about the best cafés in Strasbourg. I very much enjoy the traditional atmosphere of this café and that’s why, quite naturally, I decided to try out the hotel associated.
I wasn’t disappointed: the warm Alsatian atmosphere can be found in the whole hotel and I felt very confortable there. I also liked the good value I was getting: the prices are very reasonable for good services and a great location in Strasbourg. My only negative note would be that you can feel the hotel is aging, as you can notice some signs of wear.
The hôtel Suisse hosts Christophe Felder school, the famous Alsatian pastry chef. There are classes on Saturday morning. In case you might get tempted…
My room at the Hôtel Suisse
I stayed in a family superior room. This room is very spacious and offers beautiful views over Strasbourg cathedral. The decoration was very traditional and Alsatian, with wood and kelsch (checked fabrics). It’s a little bit old-fashioned, but it’s a beautiful place if you enjoy a rather rustic and traditional atmosphere. If you enjoy exclusively modern places, it will not be for you.
The bathroom is big, with a bathtub. Its decoration is however outdated.
Breakfast at the Hôtel Suisse
The breakfast buffet of the Hôtel Suisse is of very good value. At first sight, it seems quite ordinary, but don’t be mistaken, it is made with excellent products! Don’t miss the cheeses from the Maison Lorho, one of the best dairies of Strasbourg, as well as the delicious kougelhopf of Christophe Felder, a big name of Alsatian and French pâtisserie. Tea is of the brand Damman Frères and is also very good. My only deception is the orange juice, which was of poor quality.
The Hôtel Suisse is extremely well located, on Strasbourg Grande Île (at the heart of the city center), a Unesco World Heritage. Strasbourg Cathedral is only (literally) two steps away and Palais Rohan is right in front of the hotel.
