Alsatian charm shines brightly at this hotel located in three 16th-century houses in the heart of la Petite Venice. Guestrooms are named after different composers and you’ll discover decorative references to them throughout the hotel. Rooms are on the small side and are roughly divided between classical or modern style, some with canopy beds. Most bathrooms have been redone with contemporary fittings and tiles; the more expensive doubles and both suites have Jacuzzi tubs. The east annex is less desirable with a timbered, sloping ceiling and no Internet. It’s worth reserving at its gastronomic restaurant where you can enjoy duck breast with caramelized potatoes and turnips beside the fireplace or in summer, fish cooked in Riesling samosas on its canal-side terrace.
