La Maison des Têtes
Scale of 90-100
Set behind an early-17th-century façade embellished with some 106 carved stone heads, this hotel is ideally located in Colmar’s city center near the exceptional Unterlinden Museum. Of the 21 guest accommodations, request one of the junior suite-like Caractère Rooms, which have simple and attractive contemporary décor that highlights period elements, such as wood-paneled accent walls and leaded windows. Dining options include a superb one-star restaurant helmed by chef and hotel owner Eric Girardin, and the more casual Brasserie Historique, which offers romantic dining in a vine-shaded courtyard strung with lights. Note that the main restaurant is closed Wednesday and Thursday. This chic gourmet inn runs more like an upscale guesthouse than a true luxury hotel.

The chic, restrained décor that highlights the building’s historic details; the inviting courtyard patio of the brasserie; the superb main restaurant; our well-laid-out accommodation; the frequent presence of the owners.
Our smallish bath; the lack of a dedicated bar; the 4 p.m. check-in time; the closure of reception between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m.
