“Pretty Freiburg”
Reviewed 12 July 2012

Very nice hotel, spacious, clean, modern triple room, excellent location (very close to cathedral). Very good breakfast. Parking: a garage just around the corner.

clean, yes. decent bed, yes. decent breakfast, well, acceptable. friendly, yes.

character, no.

the location is, as the name implies, excellent and very central. they had no free rooms and had put me in a single instead of the double i had reserved (for single occupancy), so the room was smaller than i wanted and under the roof, i.e., with slanted ceilings, so it felt a bit tight. but they also reduced the price accordingly.

would i stay here again? sure, if the price is right and it's a brief visit. the problem is, freiburg simply doesn't have any outstanding hotels. when i knew i had to go there for one night, i tried to find a superior hotel, and there just aren't any there, at least not in the center of town.

so i guess it's more a freiburg thing than anything to do with this hotel. again, it's perfectly fine, just not the kind of place where i like to stay. i don't like to spend a ton of time in hotel rooms, but i also don't like a hotel where i feel like the only thing i want to do is sleep and get out. i like to get to my hotel room and have it be so nice that i just collapse into an easy chair and say, 'ah, this is nice...'

The entrance was a bit difficult to find as it is in a shopping mall corridor. The hotel is very clean, convenient to everything, and has great beds. Staff is friendly, European style breakfast was very good. Screens would be a nice addition. Church bells go off 24x7, so if you are a light sleeper this is probably not the place for you. A/C could help muffle the church bells throughout the night. If I return to Freiburg I would stay here again. Room #5.

We decided to take in Freiburg for a couple of days before Christmas to enjoy the Christmas markets and ambience. When booking this hotel we had no idea that it opened onto the square where the main Christmas market is set up. It was a little difficult getting to the hotel as it started to snow and the taxi driver was unsure of how to drive into the pedestrian streets. However, once located it was just a few steps from the drop off to the hotel. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. They provided us with vouchers for bratwurst and mulled wine at the market and advised on good places to eat. Tea and coffee is also available in the reception area to take along to your room at any time along with DVD's to borrow at no charge.

Our room was quite spacious and contained an extra bed for our son. We overlooked the market below. The market closed around 9pm so there was no problem with noise. The hotel is in a very convenient location for the old town, cathedral, train station and shops.

The breakfast was very good, plenty of cold cuts, cheese, salmon and German bread. Coffee was also good, however, my son did not like the hot chocolate. Overall, we found this hotel to be a very good choice, particularly at this time of year, with the markets providing entertainment and ambience.

I was a guest at the Hotel Am Rathaus for three days, because my father was having surgery at the Clinic in Freiburg. I stayed in a single room which was very spacious, with a good shower, big bed, balcony and a tv with DVD player. There was also a desk which had plenty of space to work at.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel offers in incredible selection of free to rent DVDs, which you can then play on the DVD player in your room. The breakfast was incredible. Fresh salmon, a selection of cheese, fresh juice and a great cappucino. I would recommend the Hotel Am Rathaus to anyone who is visiting Freiburg and will definitely return there if I visit the city again!

This was a nice clean comfortable hotel, but we had a little trouble finding the entrance since it is also the entrance to a shopping area. Parking was convenient in their basement garage, but once again not clearly marked so we at first parked in the wrong parking garage. We had a room in the front and street noise was a bit of a problem- especially early morning (4AM?) when trucks were making deliveries. Ask for a room in the back if you want a quiet night.
Breakfast was a typical good German breakfast with bread, cheese, cold cuts, yogurt, fruit, and granola. It is a good location for the old city and we could easily walk to restaurants and historical sites. The building was safe and secure and we felt safe walking at night.
Our only complaint is that the hotel offers free internet - but for one hour only! We did not quite understand that that this meant one hour and counting from the time you first connected. We checked the internet, found it worked and then went out to sightsee. When we came back hours later, we could not get on the internet. Our free hour had long since passed.

Just spent two nights at this hotel. We drove in as close as possible and one stayed in the car and other went on foot to hotel. The girl at reception was very helpful - detailed instructions to garage ( not difficult to find - and fewer pedestrian streets than we expected). We didn't move car while we were there and left early morning so didn't have to encounter too many irate pedestrians.

It really is worth it for the location. It's a great city and the hotel is very central. We were very happy with our room and thought the breakfast above average - I loved the little jug of lemon that came with the pot of tea! We found all receptionists helpful.

if you are touring in the region you should include Freiburg and I'd recommend this hotel for your stay ---even with a car!!
