Hotel Schemmer
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Pros: the rooms are clean and well decorated, and ours had a great view of the mountains. The price was very competitive (about 2/3 to 1/2 that) of other hotels we looked at in the area. The hotel staff was very polite and responsive to e-mail.

Cons: the hotel is a walk over the bridge from the city center, and if you are looking to spend a lot of time in historic (guidebook) Freiburg, it feels a bit far from the action. However, the biggest con is the noise at night and the lack of 24 hour reception. On our third night at the hotel, a bunch of people were yelling back and forth, knocking on each others doors repeatedly and congregating in the hallway (just outside our door) through the early hours of the morning. We actually wound up changing hotels as a result of this experience, as in other hotels the guests don't have to try and control other, slightly out of control guests.

Bottom line: I think the Hotel Schemmer is great if you are a student, do keep late hours, or are looking for something that is a hybrid between a hostel and a hotel (you can get rooms with their own bathroom for a reasonable rate). But, if you are looking for a romantic, noise-controlled place to stay, or want to feel close to the city center you may want to pay a little more to stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: Our room on the upper floor had a great view of the forest.

Hotel Schemmer is a family run hotel which is ideal for the budget-conscious traveller. The rooms are clean and we slept really well on good beds. Our highlight of the day was the wonderful breakfast which consist of a variety of cereals, breads, eggs and a selection of cold meats and cheeses. Added to this is orange juice, coffee, home made jams, fresh fruit and chocolates...really good! The hotel is conveniently located near bus stops, trams and the main train station, but one can easily reach the old town by foot. Angela and Michaela were fantastic - they were very helpful , friendly and always willing to give directions and helpful hints. There are two supermarkets close by, as well as takeaway outlets. All rooms have internet access. If I ever visit Freiburg again, I will definitely stay at Hotel Schemmer.

I stayed in the hotel schemmer for a 3d conference in freiberg. It is in a student area of town, close to the city centre. They recommended some good restaurants nearby. It was october, so a little quiet. I wish some of these hotels had a small communal lounge area where people can sit. I was alone and it was quite lonely sometimes. Also there was the faint smell of cigarette smoke which lasted a few nights, but disappeared over time, perhaps a ventilation problem. Overall, the staff is great, the room was clean and good location, what else can you ask for? also nice cork spongy floorboards which were comfortable. The coffee isn't so good : )

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Schemmer. The staff are very friendly. It is conveniently located to Railway Station and the old city. Public transportation is also close by. Has a supermarket (Neukauf) around the corner.
The breakfast was excellent. Buffet of juice, cereal, breads, cold cuts, cheese, jam, boiled eggs, fruit, coffee and tea. Yum, yum!
They have a smaill private garden.
