In a beautiful half-timbered building dating from the 16th century, the Cour du Corbeau (Crow’s Courtyard) is one of France’s best–loved hotels. The 57 guestrooms blend period details (solid oak flooring, wood beams) with modern must-haves (air conditioning, WiFi). All feature Louis XV–style furniture, and some look out onto the courtyard or the garden. The contemporary bathrooms come with twin vanities, stone floors and either a tub or a shower. The building’s heritage status limits what can be done with the space, so there’s no gym or spa, or even a restaurant, but the petite bar has an alfresco terrace on the secluded cobblestone courtyard. And there are plenty of restaurants, bistros and cafés within strolling distance.
In the Area
Strasbourg’s Cathédrale de Notre-Dame is a Gothic masterpiece with stained glass, an astronomical clock and a viewing platform that offers vistas of the city (after a 332-step climb). The city is easy to explore by bike, and there’s an extensive cycle network and tons of parking options. Rent a bike from Velhop, a nonprofit company with several outlets. The city’s Grande Ile (Big Island; home to the cathedral) is full of eye-catching half-timbered buildings and places to eat and drink, including Maison Kammerzell, a traditional restaurant in a house that dates from 1427.
How to Get There
We loved, loved, loved the hotel. So quaint and cute. I prefer 5 star hotels and this was different than a four seasons but adorable and lovely. We had rooms 119 and 120. Room 120 has a balcony and was amazing.
While parking was not available we were able to drop our belongings at the hotel and then drive the car to a parking facility. We took the tram back to the center of town.
We have stayed at 3 hotels so far on our germany/France vacations and this one was my favorite. The bed was super comfy and the staff very welcoming.
On arrival you walk down a lovely cobbled courtyard . Our room was nice and spacious with a large bathroom , I still don’t understand why the toilet was in a separate room and not in the main bathroom as there was more than enough room . I totally agree with the other reviewer who mentioned the high price for breakfast .
We stayed 3 nights and were delighted we had the extra time to enjoy the hotel's charm. Excellent location to walk to everything important in Strasbourg. Minutes from the Cathedral and just a little farther to Petite France. The hotel room was large, comfortable and beautifully restored. It feels very French and true to its heritage. Upon arrival, we had a bottle of local wine in our room and complimentary waters. There are only 61 rooms, so it feels special and cozy, yet alive with activity. Our room was a Jr Suite with large windows that overlooked the courtyard. We opened the windows each day while enjoying our wine, cheese and bread. The hotel staff was very good, especially Yann, who ordered our taxi on our way to airport and was very accommodating for our luggage and needs as we had a late flight out that day. Breakfast was pretty average, and the bartenders in the afternoon and evening were friendly and prepared excellent drinks. The hotel made arrangements for us to enjoy dinner at a Michelin Restaurant and sent me a list of restaurants and bars in advance.
First, DON’T sign up for breakfast plan if you are flexible! There are multiple places close by that you can either bring pastries back to your room to eat or to sit and enjoy a breakfast out for FAR LESS money than the hotel charges! Everything else about the hotel is excellent! Room was spacious and clean. Bathroom was spacious as well. The only ‘request’ I would make to the management would be to add some fixed handles in the tub. It was very slippery and if you are unsteady at all, it could be dangerous! Staff were very friendly and helpful... excellent location to everywhere in this easy to explore city!!! We would definitely return to this hotel.
Fabulous hotel in the heart of Strousborg. Rooms were all different with old world charm. Staff very accommodating. Lovely courtyard. Bar on premise. We were a group of 13 and everyone loved the hotel. Highly recommend
