Hotel Suisse in Strasbourg – Traditional atmosphere in the heart of the city

by | Updated on 1/04/2023 | Hotels | 0 comments

The Hotel Suisse of Strasbourg is a two star hotel located in the city center of Strasbourg. I discovered him at first because I knew his café, the Café Suisse, which I already told you about in my article on the best cafés in Strasbourg. Appreciating the traditional Alsatian atmosphere of this café, it is naturally that I wanted to test the hotel which is associated with it.

I was not disappointed: the warm Alsatian atmosphere is present throughout the hotel, you feel good. I also particularly appreciated the quality-price ratio: the prices are very affordable for good services and an exceptional location in Strasbourg. A small negative point, the hotel is a bit old: we note signs of wear here and there.

Note that the Hotel Suisse is home to the Ecole Christophe Felder, the famous Alsatian pastry chef. Pastry classes are held on Saturday mornings. Notice to amateurs!

My room at the Hotel Suisse

I stayed in a family room. This room is spacious and offers a very nice view on the cathedral of Strasbourg. The decoration is in the traditional Alsatian style, with wood and kelsch (checkered fabrics). It’s a little bit old-fashioned but it’s a nice place if you like this kind of traditional rustic atmosphere. If, on the other hand, you are rather fond of modern places exclusively, you will not like it.

The bathroom is large, with a bathtub. Its decoration is however rather dated.

Breakfast at the Hotel Suisse

The breakfast buffet at the Hotel Suisse offers excellent value for money. At first glance, it looks pretty ordinary but don’t be fooled, there are some great products! Do not miss the cheeses from Maison Lorho, one of the best cheese dairies in Strasbourg, as well as the delicious kougelhopf from Christophe Felder, a great name in Alsatian and French pastry. The tea, from Damman Frères, is also very good. My only disappointment came from the orange juice, which was of poor quality.


The Hotel Suisse is extremely well located: it is on the Grande Île of Strasbourg (heart of the city center), classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Strasbourg’s cathedral is just a stone’s throw away (literally) and the Palais Rohan is just across the street from the hotel.

I liked

  • Traditional Alsatian decoration
  • Located at the foot of the cathedral, in the heart of downtown Strasbourg
  • Christophe Felder’s Kouglof and cheeses from Maison Lorho for breakfast
  • Good value for money

I liked less

  • Hotel a bit old: visible signs of wear
