We stayed at the Hilton overnight for our weekend in Strasbourg. The hotel is about a mile away from the city center, but we enjoyed the walk back and forth. There is a tram that runs direct from right near the hotel to the center if one would rather not walk. The hotel front desk sells tickets for the tram (an all day pass for 1-3 people was €5.70).
We drove to Strasbourg and parked in the free parking lot across the street. The hotel has paid parking (€19/day), but with a free lot right across the street, why would anyone pay to park?
As Hilton Honors guests, our room had been upgraded to the executive floor, which gave us free wi-fi and access to the executive lounge where we could enjoy a quiet area with current magazines and newspapers, snacks and beverages at any time. The breakfast buffet came with our room and it was a great selection of breads, fruits, cereals, yogurts, and hot foods, as well as coffee, tea, or juice.
As we entered our room, there was a welcome gift of a large bottle of water and two bars of dark chocolate waiting for us. The mini bar was stocked, but we did not dare to touch it because of the prices! A look out the window gave us a wonderful view of the Cathedral, which was doubly nice at night once it was lit up!
The hotel has a fitness center, but we didn’t use it since we walked so much while in Strasbourg. But it is nice to know the option is there.
The front desk personnel were extremely helpful and answered all of our questions about where to go and where to eat while in town.
Our room was €65 for the night (with free breakfast for both of us, free wi-fi, free parking). When doing the research for the trip, I noticed that the Hilton’s prices are higher during the weekdays, most likely due to their proximity to the European Parliament buildings and business travelers. They also have a large conference center at the hotel, so I sense that they do more business on Monday through Friday than the weekends.
Would we go back to this hotel again? Yes, definitely. It was a wonderful weekend and a great experience.
Second time I'm staying here and I really don't see any compelling reason to stay at this hotel if not for business...
It is located pretty much outside the city, quite far from the touristic area but just in front of the EU institutions.
Hilton is usually synonym of quality and indeed in general this is pretty good, the staff is nice, the room is nice but... I have the feeling everything here is a bit under-dimensioned, the reception is far from being impressive, the rooms are quite small, in the bathroom, the toilets are hidden behind the doors,...
Since there is not much around, you pretty much have to eat at the local restaurant. The quality is barely at the average level, it is understaffed and largely overpriced...
Unique Quality: Access by car is quite easy and there is a huge open parking in front of the hotel.
Regional product as 'welcome pack'. It's apparently changing over time. First time, it was two small bottles of local alcool. A month later, it was just a pack of biscuits, much less interesting ;-)
*** update Nov 07 (with pictures)***
I've spent one more night at this hotel, even if the welcome pack has disappeared, I now have much better feelings about the hotel.
True that I took my car to have my dinner in the center (from what I've been told, the tram could be another option) and not at the hotel!
I've also been upgraded, these pictures are not from a standard room....
