All around the city, there are charming boutique hotels that offer comfort and a taste of Alsace lifestyle. Here we reveal some of the best, all bookable with Culture Trip.

Step back in time at the Cour du Corbeau, one of Europe’s oldest hotels and a fine example of Renaissance architecture. The half-timbered property is a photographer’s dream and the rooms are equally as attractive. There are 63 individually-styled rooms with contemporary furnishings, some with exposed wooden beams. The slick cocktail bar offers an elegant spot to kick back, while the courtyard is a treat on a sunny day.

Strasbourg might not have the same reputation for romance as some of its French siblings, but there are still plenty of spots that offer a touch of magic. The Régent Petite France is one of them, perched on the River Ill in the Medieval Quarter. The former ice-mill has a spa with an outdoor hot tub, as well as a sauna and steam rooms. All of the 75 rooms have distinct colour schemes and furniture spanning various eras. La Pont Tourant, which overlooks the river Ill, serves Alsace cuisine.

Once a bourgeois villa, each of the 10 rooms feels like it belongs to a different hotel.

Le Bouclier d’Or (The Golden Shield) is a very regal sounding name which is fitting for this 16th-century house. Exterior turrets and panelled ceilings gel perfectly with historic Petite France and nearby Barrage Vauban (dam). The subterranean Ecrin du Bien-Etre Spa features hydro-massage showers, whirlpool tubs and treatment rooms, and the rooms themselves are filled top to bottom with vintage furniture and creature comforts.

The Les Haras was converted from a set of abandoned 18th-century stables in 2014 by Parisian designers Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku. The results are astonishing. The lounge area looks like the offices of some emergent tech giant and everywhere you look brass and oak reign supreme. The brasserie-style restaurant is run by a three Michelin starred chef, while other highlights include a 17-metre indoor pool, hammam, a relaxation room and a state-of-the-art fitness centre.

The artists were given free rein to decorate the rooms and the inspiration for each work came from sources as diverse as the optical art of Swen Inkub in room 203 to the origami light and shadow of room 101 by Monsta. The common areas encourage guests to mingle so you’re bound to leave here with some new travel buddies.

    The two-star Hotel Suisse offers great value and a perfect location. It is directly across from the cathedral – so close, you can see the spire from some of the rooms. The hotel is friendly and cosy and full of character having been decorated in traditional shabby-chic Alsace touches. For pastry lovers, the cafe on the ground floor – where a generous buffet breakfast is served – is worth a pilgrimage for a slice of its legendary Kughelhopf.
