Smaller hotel with stylish touches and great staff. This hotel is on a lovely little street (especially picturesque at Christmas time) with restaurants nearby and parking just 2-mins away. Very convenient! We had a quiet room, as requested, and slept very well - though the bed may not be as supportive for some. Staff were helpful with restaurant recommendations and with the included breakfast (the waitress checked on us several times during the buffet). The food was delicious. I would stay at this hotel again and recommend it to those looking for a smaller hotel.

Stayed: December 2013

Small hotel at great location, right in the middle of the old city in one of the most beautiful streets of Freiburg. Friendly owners, clean and modern rooms. Great shower and beds. Breakfast is served in restaurant with friendly staff and fresh, fantastic coffee! Close by parking in nearby parking garage. It was our first visit to Freiburg and it surprised us positively.

I stayed only one night, but would have loved to stay longer. The room was nice, bathroom little bit old, but very clean with very good toiletries. The staff is very friendly and professional. The food in the restaurant was just wonderful and I had the best wine ever (would love to know what is was exactly, forgot to ask for the name).
Location is perfect, right in the center of the Altstadt.

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left the friendliness and efficiency of the owner and his colleagues was exemplary. We stayed only one night, but wished it could have been longer. The restaurant food was superb and service was excellent. Whilst there is no direct parking, it's only a very short walk from what looks like a very safe (and well-lit) car park. The location is excellent, and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. It might be a bit noisy on a warm summer evening (no air-con so open windows) but that's a small price to pay for staying so close to the heart of a historic and picturesque city. We loved it and will definitely go back.

We wanted a hotel near the old part of Freiburg to savour the medieval and middle ages historical character of the city. The Kreuzblume Hotel certainly fitted the bill, sitting in Konviktstrasse in the Altstatte. We were aware that there was no parking directly at the hotel, but we followed the sat-nav up the hill from the river after navigating from the autobahn to the centre.
Admittedly when we turned up a narrow side spur to drive right into a multi-storey car park we feared that we we were lost. Exiting from the car park via the pedestrian route however, we were right on Konviktstrasse and the hotel was on the narrow pedestrian cobbled street on our left.

Our arrival was a little later than expected and with it being a small hotel we were not sure if anyone would be on the reception. A lady stayed behind to show us our rooms however and we were pleasantly surprised with the fresh and modern outlook of the décor and spotlessly clean. Our daughter’s settled for the larger room on the middle floor and we were on the top floor. Both rooms had windows opening onto the narrow quaint street with trailing vines extending across to opposite properties.
The tea and coffee facilities in the room was supplemented by some fresh milk from the evening staff upon request.. Most welcome.

We ventured out that evening to eat elsewhere, but the morning continental breakfast in the restaurant dining room was varied and plentiful.

It would be doing the hotel an injustice not to mention the splendidly comfortable beds. We mentioned this in the morning and found out that they were specifically sourced, with box spring, feather and memory mattresses on a sprung bed to ensure the best night’s sleep for guests…. Excellent, quality night’s sleep. 

Would certainly recommend staying at the Kreuzblume. Value for money and within the beautiful old town with all of the old world charm expected in the Black Forest area.

Booked short-notice with my wife based on tripadvisor comments. The young owner-manager was extremely professional, efficient and very welcoming. Though young he has much experience in international hotels and it shows in that he knows what he is doing. We hadn't arranged for an additional bed but he quickly shifted around rooms and a comfortable extra bed was arranged promptly. The room had a nice mix of old and new, and certainly was very clean. It's not very big but perfectly sufficient. We had a very good sleep in the comfortable bed with the window open - it faced the back so was reasonably quiet. It's not a big hotel but that gives it a special charm. Breakfast was pleasant with the owner having set a table for us personally and a buffet with good choices for a small hotel. The hotel is right next to the main "Altstadt" and everything is in close walking distance. Parking is convenient at the nearby Schlossgarten garage and the hotel provides a coupon for EUR10/day that helps defray costs. The free wifi was a bit finicky as it repeatedly disconnected, but not a big issue. We definitely will stay again!

Room Tip: Probably a room facing the back is better to avoid street noise. Ours was facing the back and we sle...

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?
