Hilton Strasbourg Review: A Great Hotel in an Underrated European City

Hilton Strasbourg Review

My mom and I stayed at the Hilton Strasbourg in June of 2022 and had an excellent stay. We checked out the room, club lounge, restaurant, and public areas, and all were great. The city this hotel is in is also excellent, so there’s not much more I could ask for. Let’s dive into this Hilton Strasbourg review.

Booking

The Hilton Strasbourg is part of the Hilton Honors program, which is a program that dynamically prices points stays, just like cash stays are. Because it is dynamic, the prices differ depending on when you are staying. The point prices go as low as 26,000 points and as high as 50,000 points for a standard room. Unlike most hotels in Europe, there are actually two high seasons: the summertime and the month of December. The reason for that is because Strasbourg, France has some excellent Christmas Markets in December.

Overall, this isn’t a great hotel to redeem points at, because cash prices are usually only about €100 ($88) per night and award nights start at about 25,000 points. This means that you can only get about 0.035 cents per point, which is lower than what we value Hilton Honors points. Be sure to double check the prices during high season though, like early and mid December where points make more sense.

For our stay, we paid $126 per night for the Hilton Semi-Flex rate. The price was as high as $200 the day before check-in, so suffice to say we got a great deal.

I also knew that we would have a high likelihood of at least being upgraded to an Executive Room, so I didn’t pay the extra cost for that. The regular base rooms don’t appear to be in the best shape. Because of that, I’d recommend paying the extra ~$17 for a deluxe room, as the rooms are going to be in much better condition.

Before Arrival

Before we arrived, I emailed the hotel to see if I could get an upgraded room. To my surprise, the hotel upgraded us to a King Family room. This room actually costs more than $200 per night than the room we booked. What an awesome upgrade! I also talk about this in further detail in my article on how to email a hotel and get an upgrade.

Furthermore, I do think that it does help if you have stayed at a hotel before. In our case, we had just stayed here in July of 2021. This shows the hotel that you are a loyal customer, and in turn, that means that they are likely to upgrade you because of that.

Location

While this hotel is not in the city center, I do think it is a solid location. There is a Carrefour City that is in between the size of a 7-Eleven and Walmart, about two blocks away, and that was quite cheap and super easy to get to.

There is also a tram station called Lycée Kléber (Kleber High School in English) about 5 minutes away by foot. From there, you can get to the center of the city in about 10 minutes. Overall, Strasbourg is probably my favorite medium-sized European city. It’s not full of tourists, but it is full of so much charm, and there is so much to see.

Hilton Strasbourg Review – Check-in

After taking the Strasbourg tram from the train station, we made the 5-minute walk to the hotel. When we entered, there was no line to check in, and we were checked in by a friendly front desk agent. After giving us a rundown of our elite benefits, we took the elevator to our room. The elevators here do not require a room key to access guest room floors.

Room

Our room, 330 was located on the 4th floor and called the Alcide Glasper Suite. For a one-night stay, this suite was more than adequate. When you enter, there is a mini fridge on the left, which contained two water bottles. On the table above the fridge, there is a tea kettle, along with a Nespresso Coffee Maker. On the left, there is a desk.

When I first created a Hilton Honors account, I noted that I prefer 2 beds to 1 bed. I assume because of that, there is an extra rollaway bed in the room. That was on the left further down into the room. Right behind that are a television and a large chair. Across from that is a couch, which can also be converted into a pullout couch. There are also 2 more water bottles on the table beside the couch. Further down, there is a king-size bed with a bedside table on either side. There was a European power plug and a USB port on either side as well.

There is a small hallway on the right. This leads you to a small closet, which has a robe, a pair of slippers, a safe, and a hairdryer. Across from that is the bathroom. My apologies if I was in any of the photos, as it was a bit hard with the number of mirrors. The bathroom has one sink, a toilet, and a shower/bathtub. The bathroom amenities were from Crabtree & Evelyn, which is the standard among Hilton properties.

We also had a stunning view of the Strasbourg Cathedral, which was once the world’s tallest building. If there’s one thing I’d recommend seeing in Strasbourg, it is this cathedral. It is the most beautiful building I’ve seen.

Thoughts on the Room

For a one-night stay, it doesn’t get much better than this. This is probably the quietest hotel I’ve stayed in, as we didn’t hear a peep, and the same can be said about our previous stay. I was a bit concerned about the adjoining room door being right next to the bed, but there were no issues. There were also power plugs around the room, which was great.

The only potential things I’d improve on were in the bathroom. First, I found the shower a bit of a pain to use, as there is one dial that controls both the shower and bathtub. But, once I got used to it, there were not any issues. Second, there was not a door to prevent water from “escaping” the shower, so the surrounding area got a bit wet. Finally, the button to flush the toilet requires holding down for a few seconds. Overall, these are very minor issues, but they’re still worth noting.

Amenities

Like many European hotels, there is no pool at the Hilton Strasbourg. There is, however, a fitness center and sauna, located on floor -1. They were both quite small, but the gym had the basics, and the sauna was working and was very hot.

On the top floor, there is also a prayer room that faces the cathedral, though I didn’t get any photos as it was quite busy.

Hilton Strasbourg Review – Food and Beverage

There are two restaurants at this hotel: the H! Bar, and the H! Brasserie. When the Executive Lounge was closed last year, we had sodas at the bar since the hotel gave us two food and drink vouchers, which covered two people. This is where dinner is served, but it is open from 10 AM to Midnight Monday through Friday, and 3 PM to Midnight Saturday and Sunday.

The H! Brasserie is where breakfast is served daily and the hours are:

Breakfast
  • Monday to Sunday
    6:30 am – 10:00 am
Lunch
  • Monday to Sunday
    12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Dinner
  • Monday to Sunday
    7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

We ate here for breakfast, and I found the buffet to be about average for both quantity and quality. I thought the Hilton Évian Les-Bains had a better buffet, but, the Hilton Strasbourg had my favorite kind of bread: Pretzels!

Club Lounge

The Hilton Strasbourg does have an open club lounge, unlike many hotels in the US. That is located on floor 0, located across from the bar. First of all, I am very happy that they opened their lounge, as there are very few hotels in the US that have an open lounge. But, this lounge was a bit underwhelming. It felt a bit dungeon-like, and the food served wasn’t anything my mom and I liked. However, it was nice to get some soda and seltzer before leaving the hotel.

Hilton Strasbourg Review – Final Thoughts

Like our last stay, I liked the Hilton Strasbourg. It was cheap, conveniently located, and the staff was very friendly. They also do a great job of honoring elite benefits. The rooms could be remodeled in the coming years, but they were excellent for our one-night stay. All in all, I’d happily stay here again and highly recommend it.
