We stayed here for one night on our grand tour of the region’s Christmas Markets, and one step outside of the hotel’s entrance puts you right in the middle of all of the Christmas spirit. (If you’ve ever looked at Colmar photos on Instagram and seen the white-flocked tree in front of a beautiful timbered house decorated for the holiday, it’s literally steps away.) Petite Venice is a 5-minute walk, the church is a 5-minute walk – everything is a 5-minute walk.
The hotel staff is kind and helpful, and the charm and quaintness of this hotel can’t be understated. Our room had the wood beams, stone walls, and a view over the Christmas markets, It was like being transported back in time but with modern amenities. And there’s a convenient “grocery store” across the street if you’d like to stock up on snacks, bread, cheese, etc.
One note, during the Christmas markets, unless you’re getting there early or late, the streets are closed off, so you can’t have a taxi drop you off in front of the hotel. But a drop off point is – you guessed it – 5 minutes away.
This hotel is right in the heart of all of the beauty that Colmar is. It’s literally next door to a famous spot that everyone loves to take around Christmas time and post on social media (if you’re into that). Location is the best!
The hotel staff was extremely friendly.
The key to open the door to your room is an old school key vs a swipe card, which we thought was charming. There is a beautiful courtyard in the middle of the hotel.
Breakfast can be purchased and it always smell so good!
highly recommend this hotel if you’ve ever dreamt of coming to Colmar, especially during the Christmas season since the market is only steps away from the front door.
The room was comfortable and one was in the heart of the Christmas market as soon as you were out the door. Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby so the location was ideal. Good choice for our needs.

A beautiful hotel with an excellent location. We stayed during the Christmas markets time in November 2019 when we planned our trip to Alsace Lorraine route.The outside decoration was fantastic with colorful lights and the big teddy bears sliding from the roof.
The room we stayed was named Mozart facing the main road with colorful lights. The dining room has a beautiful view of the canal. The staff was very helpful. Everything in the walking distance. Had an excellent time.
Very good position in little Venice area, some rooms have view to the water. Romantic atmosphere, very nice Christmas decorations with bears and lights. In front of the hotel there is a nice Christmas market. Nice staff in reception, good food in own beautiful restaurant. The rooms are a little bit small even if comfort not standard but bathroom is spacious.
An interesting thing is the fact that the building being old and pittoresque, the rooms are not perfectly horizontal but a bit inclined which makes you integrate more in the atmosphere.
The hotel has a premier location smack in the middle of the historic district. We could walk out the door and straight into a Christmas market.
The staff were very friendly.
The hotel is located in the center of the old town. And the back of the hotel faced little Venice. (Walk 15 minutes to train station)
We were there during Christmas and New year. There was a nice christmas market right in front. And only a short walk to 4 other markets.
The hotel was nicely renovated but still has a feeling of old time 15th century. Our room was on 3rd floor with 3 windows facing the canal, equipped with everything you need.
One little thing is the very low ceiling. Sometimes my head almost hit the chandelier hanging above our bed.
We also had a candle light dinner at its restaurant. Love it. Well, we actually love everything of this town!
