Lobby of the Citadines Eurometropole Strasbourg.
A vast spa with an indoor swimming pool, but also a restaurant whose menu is designed by a chef who has worked at renowned restaurants, and a large area dedicated to meetings and seminars: with its new residence which is opening these days in Strasbourg, the Citadines brand of apartment-hotels is going well beyond the boundaries of its usual offer, which is often limited in terms of services for its European establishments.
With its wellness and relaxation component, one might think that the establishment is mainly geared towards a leisure clientele. However, this is not the case, as the Citadines Eurometropole Strasbourg is located near the Espace Européen de l’Entreprise, an office park to the north of Strasbourg which houses the regional management of Orange Alsace, the office furniture manufacturer Steelcase and the CNRS.
This is the second address of the Ascott group in the Alsatian capital – adding to the Citadines Kleber Strasbourg in the city centre – and is operated by the Aegide Group
, which specialises in senior residences with its Domytis brand. Travellers who come to the Alsatian capital for several days or weeks will find 137 studios of over 30 m2 and 29 two-room apartments, all with fully equipped kitchens and connected TVs. The offer is also adapted to groups, since a studio can be connected to an apartment to accommodate up to 6 people. An indoor swimming pool in the Spa by Sothys offered by the Citadines Eurometropole Strasbourg.
The Citadines Eurometropole Strasbourg stands out from the crowd because of the many features that go beyond the classic hotel setting. Its 400 m² Spa by Sothys invites you to relax and includes treatment rooms, an indoor swimming pool, a sauna, a hammam and a fitness room with Technogym equipment. Nomadic professionals will also be able to enjoy real food by discovering the specialities of wood-grilled meats – hence the name of this 100-cover restaurant, Braise par Substance -, designed by chef Valérian Privat, who has worked at the renowned Tour d’Argent and is advised by Matthias Marc, who will be seen in 2021 on the TV show Top Chef.
Local guests will also be able to enjoy this new table with a glass of Alsatian wine, as the wine list gives them pride of place, as will business groups. The apartment-hotel has a vast space for business meetings.
The meeting rooms can accommodate up to 300 people. With daylight, its meeting rooms are modular and equipped with the latest technology, with integrated video conferencing, clickshare document sharing solutions and touch screens. Whether it’s Bose sound or lighting, the audio-visual equipment is controlled in a click through the Smart Meeting offer.
The technological dimension of the establishment does not stop there, since travelers can, thanks to the LoungeUP application, make a contactless check-in, receive the key of their apartment on their smartphone or use it to communicate via WhatsApp or Messenger with the team of the aparthotel.
Well in tune with the times, the Citadines Eurometropole Strasbourg also places a strong emphasis on two contemporary topics: design and CSR. In addition to the green roof and walls, the hotel uses raw materials and responsible initiatives such as energy-efficient lighting and a local recycling system in partnership with the Schroll group. Last but not least, the possibility of renting bicycles at the reception desk and the installation of 15 recharging stations for electric cars will appeal to travellers who are concerned about the carbon footprint of their journeys.
With the Citadines Eurométropole Strasbourg, we are offering a forward-looking and environmentally friendly stay experience,” said Ngor Houai Lee, Managing Director of The Ascott Limited Europe. Strasbourg is a dynamic economic city with many assets. The privileged location near the European Business Centre, the seminar areas and the wellness facilities offered in this new technology-oriented residence will appeal to our business and leisure clientele.«
I’m Michelle, and I love to travel. As a former hotel expert for one of the world’s largest hotel chains, I’ve stayed in nearly every type of room imaginable (including many that were not so desirable!). Nowadays, I am fortunate enough to be able to explore the world on my own terms. From international flights to learning different languages, there is nothing too far out of reach!
