I am needing to stay in Saint-Louis in May, I will be staying alone and need a hotel that is quite central (for ease of wandering) and that is not too expensive, I will be coming from Basel possibly by tram - does anyone have any suggestions please ?? Also any suggestions of how to entertain myself for two days in Saint-Louis ... I have not visited before - thank you

    There is an Ibis downtown that might suit you. We haven't stayed there so I can't recommend them, but Ibis is a very reliable chain and usually not too expensive.

    There is a museum of contemporary art within walking distance but it didn't particularly appeal to me. Art is very personal so you might enjoy it. Here's their web site.

    You can check reviews on, our sister web site. There isn't much listed for St. Louis but one thing looked interesting (to me).

    Here's the official St. Louis town web site so you can check for things happening on the dates you'll be visiting. (click the tiny British flag top right for an English translation)

    Enjoy Alsace.

    well you are very close to Bale about 3 kms on the Swiss border, nice natural beauty there.Saint Louis by order of Louis XIV lol! it has a more German names before that. And after the 1870-1914 era too. It was evacuated in 1939 (the whole town) to protect from the other invasion...
    Better known for been the home of Danzas a freight forwarded company my wife knows very well... Very nice market in city center dating from 1860,and the tramway from Bale reaches there so easy to move in and out;
    you have some old churches such as St Louis from the 1840-60's era, and a Cupola cinema, Musée d'art contemporain Fernet Branca, this is a museum taken the name from the old distillerie in town
    the town has an english version that can give you more info. I just past by several years ago by car.

    the hotel beausoleil gave you a nice one Ibis are good simple hotels, from a good chain, and they are about 7 in town on the city page

    hope it helps
