Where to stay in Strasbourg
The accommodation on offer in Strasbourg is sufficiently varied to suit all tastes and budgets, whether you prefer staying in a hotel, in a hostel, in a furnished accommodation or in a guest house. Take a look at the city’s tourist office website to get a glimpse of the possibilities.
To book your accommodation, you may also visit the following websites and see what is available:
If you are looking for a more affordable option, you can contact locals willing to host travellers through Couchsurfing.
Thanks to the well connected public transport, you can also stay in less touristy areas outside of Strasbourg, where accommodation is less costly. In doing so, we recommend choosing a place to stay close to a train or tram station to get easy access to the city and the European Parliament.
Due to the large number of participants, we advise groups to book accommodation as soon as they get confirmation of their participation at the event.
How to enjoy an ecologically sustainable stay in the city
France offers several ecolabels for sustainable accommodation but only one of them is common to all Member States, the EU Ecolabel for Tourist Accommodation Services. This certification is granted based on several criteria to ensure that the labelled accommodation is among the best ones in the market in terms of environmental performance such as reduced water consumption, reduced waste generation and optimised waste management or reduced energy consumption.
Other certifications exist such as “la Clef verte” (Green key) which is an international eco-label managed by the Foundation for Environmental Education. It sets not only ecological but also socio-economic standards that are reviewed every four years to take into consideration technical improvements and new environmental concerns.
Besides, some establishments have taken eco-friendly measures which can include on-site recycling system, energy saving staff training, eco-friendly cleaning products, reduced water usage and product waste, changing towels only on request and presence of water fountains.
Accessible accommodation options
The City of Strasbourg and its region offer several options for accessible accommodation and tourist sites through the French label “Tourisme et Handicap” (Tourism and Disability). This label aims at providing trustworthy and objective information to people with disabilities who are looking for a tourist venue adapted to their disability. You can learn more about your options on the website of the city’s tourist office.
Aside from this label, some establishments have introduced specific measures to help guests with visual, hearing or mental disability. These include adapted spaces and disability-sensitive staff. They can vary from one establishment to another.
