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
Very well looked after, very friendly staff. Great breakfasts too. Many rooms overlook the Cathedral; you WILL hear the chimes every quarter hour (thankfully not throughout the night).
About a 20 minute walk from the railway station. There's a restaurant on the way on Rue Maire Kuss called Expresso that offers excellent meals with complementary roll for 8.50 Euros and very friendly service. Good arrived pretty quickly too; ate there twice.
We stayed seven nights at this hotel just across the river from the historic city centre. It was very easy to reach using the airport train followed by a tram from the city railway station.
As soon as you enter the cobbled courtyard you are transported back into history, this effect is helped by the complete isolation from the busy city a few footsteps away. We were lucky enough to have a room upgrade to overlook the courtyard and this definitely enhanced our stay as we were able to look at the historic architecture while we were in our room. The rooms have been modernised but this meant they were also very well soundproofed. The facilities were very good including a great breakfast and a bar which serves excellent drinks including a good range of quality wines from Alsace. The staff couldn't have been better during our entire stay and were very friendly and helpful with advice on trips and dinner reservations. The location itself is hard to beat and we walked from the hotel to almost every part of the city but the tram is very close if you prefer to use it. We though Strasbourg was beautiful and if we return we would certainly stay again at the Cour du Corbeau.
If like us you return home on Sunday there are fewer trains and a taxi direct to the airport will cost about 50 euros.
Booked this place quite last minute just after the festive season, and we are so glad we did. Absolutely perfectly located for the Cathedral, the markets, and wandering along the waterways. The architectural detail is stunning, and leads to some quirky corridors and spaces within the hotel, but what a lovely treat to be able to call it home for a bit. The front office staff are especially welcoming and attentive to guest needs, especially when they upgraded us to a suite! We didn't eat there so cannot comment about F&B, but the hotel itself is atmospheric and fabulous.
The MGallery Cour du Corbeau Hotel has a perfect location, right in the middle of everything in Strasbourg.
Just on arrival, you discorver the typical architecture of the city which has a lot of charm and is a courtyard very quiet and nice.
Our checking was done by Julie who was very welcoming, smiling and professional. She also gave us a really good advice about where to have diner. Thanks to her, we had a lovely time.
She annonced us our upgrade which was a great surprise.
The bell boy escorted us to our room which was a junior suite of 37 m2 with a wonderful view of the courtyard which definitely made the « wahou effect ». This was just amazing.
The king size bed was really comfortable, the bathroom was nice and well prepared, and everything was very clean. I think Ivana was the one who cleaned up our room so thanks to her as well.
After a lovely night, we went to breakfast which was full of choice and tasty. I just think products should be further highlighted to give more envy.
The common spaces are clean and smells very good.
Our room was cleaned very well and at the right time during our stayover which is so appreciable when you come back at the hotel during the day and everything is done already.
We also went at the bar twice which was very quiet. There are a large choice of cocktails and drinks which a very good as well.
Our checkout was done by Morgane and Margaux who were also fast and professional.
I definitely recommend this hotel which is quiet, charming and a good value for money.
We had a lovely stay.
This is a beautiful and historic building, wonderfully restored. It occupies a convenient central location, close to the cathedral. There is also a multi-storey car park close by.
We stayed 1 night here in 2 junior suites and a standard room. The rooms very very spacious and comfortable, but it was disappointing that the junior suite was not significantly larger than the double room and the 2nd bed was in fact a pull out.
The breakfast was nice, although I thought the dining room was a little on the small side. Despite this there did not seem to be a capacity problem while we were there, but I suspect there must be at times.
There was a complimentary drink - which we redeemed the following evening after we checked out! Also some “complimentary” gifts.
The staff were very welcoming and helpful.
I would be happy to stay here again.
