The Strasbourg National Studs were built in the middle of the 18th century along the city’s medieval ramparts.

The rehabilitation of the historic buildings of the Haras de Strasbourg began on this listed historical monument in 2010 in collaboration with architects and designers Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku. The famous duo was inspired by the history of the place to highlight the equestrian world and its prestigious codes.

The work was completed in 2013 for the birth of an exceptional set of buildings. The professionals who dreamed of reviving these buildings have succeeded in preserving the nobility and charm of the place and handing down the memory of its occupants.

Since it opened, the four-star hotel has attracted over 120 nationalities from all over the world. The decor by Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku fully contributed to this success.

In 2020, the Les Haras hotel unveiled an additional 2710 m² to offer its guests 60 new rooms, 3 seminar areas and a wellness area with an indoor swimming pool, a sauna, a hammam and three NUXE treatment booths.


The interior architecture of the hotel designed by Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku drew its overall inspiration from the equestrian world and treatment. They navigate between breaking with the past and perpetuating it with a pallet of natural materials such as wood, leather, linen and cotton fabrics. Accustomed to designing hotel rooms, they defy the standards. For Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku, “our task is to make room for the subjective territory that each traveler brings with him or her”.

This going back to the roots is reflected in the asceticism of the lines and shapes drawn. It also enhances the elegance of the composition, which offers travelers the luxury of time to themselves, as if suspended: a precious invitation to daydreaming and rest.
