“Very good breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

Loved the breakfast here. Wide variety of sweet and savoury. Our room was very clean and comfortable, but a little hot. We were on the top floor, and I would recommend asking for a room lower down. There were large fans in the corridor we could have used which suggests heat is a common problem. Also the lift didn't go up as far as this floor. The hotel is very central but, as others have said, getting there by car is a bit tricky as you have to drive through a pedestrian area to the underground car park. If you are travelling by car I would recommend booking a parking place beforehand - worth paying- and then getting clear directions from the hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid the very top floor - no lift and rather hot.

Hotel staff was very helpful, but the hotel is hard to find. The entrance is inside a shopping area and the GPS could not find it, because it is on a pedestrian area which you have to drive to to park the car. The room was large, but not air conditioned. The breakfast buffet adequate, but nothing special. I would NOT recommend visiting this town. There were much prettier places that we drove through. The church, the market, some of the old buildings were interesting, but unless you have a specific reason for visiting - I would add a different city to your intinerary.

Room Tip: Family suite was large.

The Hotel am Rathaus is centrally located, very clean, reasonably priced (for the location), and surprisingly quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful, and breakfast is very good. They have free internet and a big library of DVDs. If you want to stay in the center of the old part of Freiburg, this is a great place.

The hotel is really nice with great central location but is really not suitable for families. To get to the parking space you have to drive in a pedestrian only area, the parking is within 2 mins walking distance, but is not connected to the hotel. The breakfast is nice for business people, but not much to eat for kids and the small eating room amplifies every child noise. The big family room on floor 5 is reachable only by stairs from floor 4, which sadly was not mentioned during the order. So, not for families, but yes for all the rest.

This is, as advertised, a three star hotel, but it was very good for a three star. The hotel was kept very clean, and the staff were pleasant and helpful. The breakfast tables were prettily decorated with dark yellow dishes and we thought the buffet was excellent. Our room was comfortable and well maintained, but my husband found the bed too hard. Our biggest problem was with the shower in our room, which was rather bizarre - it was in a tub that was sort of coffin-shaped, at the narrow end, which left little room to manoeuver, and the glass barrier did not cover enough of the tub, so no matter how we tried water got everywhere. Our sons' room has what looked like a much better shower stall, as did a room we peeked in one day in passing. The location is great, and overall I recommend this hotel.

This is a town centre three star bed and breakfast hotel within the old city of Freiburg. Surrounded by lots of excellent shops, restaurants, bars and fast food.

Close to the Concert House and the Munsterplatz - regular markets

Excellent value for money - nicely furnished and equipped rooms - free dvd library. DVD players in every room. Free coffee and tea in the reception area.

Free Internet. Very good breakfasts.

We stay only one night in this hotel. The rooms are ok, excellent bath room. The breakfast is normal but it would be helpful to have a self service coffee machine, the filter coffee is too light... If
you go there when the Christmas market is in front of the hotel, it will be difficult to have a good access to the hotel and the parking, because for the next months the work on the main streets who brings you to the hotel.
