The hotel is right on the edge of the old town, which is very convenient if you drive to Freiburg as I did because you can park your car at the underground lot and come out to the surface some 30 meters from the hotel so your bags don't have the time to get too heavy. You can't get lost as the hotel owner sent you an e-mail the day before and then called you to give you the directions.
Our room was small, but so is the old town. The bed was soft, as is the local accent. The furniture was simple, wooden and probably made by the carpenter who lives next door. The breakfast was simple again (perhaps too simple), but by breakfast time you no longer care as the night before you walked all around the charming town, dined at a romantic restaurant, put your tired feet into the rivulets with cold water running along the cobblestone streets, and then walked around the quiet town again trying to find the famous Schwarzwalderkirschtorte (with no success, so we'll have to come back).
Is it a great modern hotel with a spa and large well-stocked bathrooms? no. It does not have porters, so the owner himself helps you carry your bags upstairs and you are at a loss whether you can tip him: after all, he is the owner (in fact, one of the Dutch/German owner threesome). And the hotel does not have minibars, safeboxes, or air-conditioning. But remember? your Granny's old country cottage did not have all those things either, and you did not mind as a child. So that's what this hotel is: a friendly and intimate place run by warm and friendly people. Can you do without a spa, for a change?
