Residence Jean-Sebastien Bach
Ranked #48 of 129 Hotels in Strasbourg
Reviewed 1 July 2012

The hotel has considerable virtues: I had a large room - suite, almost, with separate walk-in wardrobe, loo and bathroom, plus a kitchen "corner" with washing-up machine, microwave, hob, sink and fridge, comfortable sofa and chairs, and large balcony with table and chairs. The breakfasts seemed OK but breakfast is not my thing. It is next to the superb Orangerie park (lake, boating, waterfalls, fountains, aviary, wild storks nesting, woodland, flower gardens, children's playgrounds - absolutely beautiful) and very convenient for the European institutions just across the park.

But it has its limitations. It is some distance from the city centre (and a taxi took 15 minutes to arrive). It has no bar or restaurant, and there is only one (quite passable) restaurant nearby. There is no wi-fi except in the foyer - and they charge an extortionate €10 a day to plug in a cable in the rooms (and the process of making the connection is often wayward). The selection of TV channels is extremely limited - in English only CNN and BBC Prime.

And like many hotels today they have the same hypocritical - actually lying - self-promotion as environmentally concerned of claiming to replace towels only if they are left on the floor but actually replacing them willy nilly even if re-folded and hung on the towel rail. Complaints about this on two successive days made no difference whatever - in fact, the reaction was on one occasion to misunderstand my mentioning the subject as a complaint that the towel had not been replaced.

And why do tablets of soap have to be scrapped even if used only once?

Very clean and nicely furnished, comfortable rooms with small kitchens. Good for a long stay- quiet and pleasant- though woman at front desk rude and unhelpful and it seemed more like Paris! Across the street from L'Orangerie, a lively park with resident native storks, and nice Italuan restaurant next door. Highly recommended.

This hotel is basically a stopping-place for travelers on their way through Strasbourg. It is in a nice setting, just off the Orangerie but on the other side of the park from the European Parliament buildings. As such, it is not handy to anything, though one can take wonderful strolls through the park. The main transit line is a good 10-15 minute walk and from there to the main part of Strasbourg is another 15-20 minutes. Also, there was only one restaurant nearby (though there were two other, more exclusive ones, in the park). The staff was pleasant but not overly so. The room was very acceptable, with a nice kitchenette. Oddly, our balcony connected to the next room, so anyone from the next room could easily have strolled by our window!

It was a pleasure to stay in Residence Jean-Sebastien Bach! Large apartment with enourmous balcony. Very friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. Buildings of ECHR and Council of Europe within walking distance. Free wifi was in lobby only. I would highly recommend!

If you are lucky to get a room during plenary sesssions of the European Parliament, go for it. The bed is really good, the room it's quiet, the bathroom is nice and clean. There is a small kitchenette, which is convenient, as there are no decent restaurants in the area. There are two supermarkets where you can get some ready-made meals. Free Wifi is only available in the lobby, unfortunately, I think there is wired internet in the room, but it is not free and I have a wifi only device. For city trips it's a bit too far outside the city centre.
Breakfast is OK, not too exciting.
