“clean, comfortable & classy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

Excellent location, close to train station & short walk to historic old town and cathedral; 8th floor not a great view (rooftops & air conditioning units), but definitely quiet, clean, comfortable & classy especially since we walked in off the street from the train; WiFi included; secure garage for bicycles; EXCELLENT breakfast; helpful front desk staff (Patricia) Recommend? Yes for sure

Room Tip: higher floors not a great view, but quiet;

We walked out of the station and straight into this hotel, first one we came to and not a bad choice for a one night stay. Easy for a walk around the old town, shortest bag carry from station in our entire trip. Echo other comments about excellent breakfast and poor internet. I'd like to give it a B+ but settled on a generous very good

Nice and close to both the city and the train station this hotel offers one of the better breakfasts in a smallish hotel but coupled with genuinely friendly staff that seem to like their jobs. Good size rooms, clean and clear. Very sadly let down by a terrible internet service, the hotel provides a new password log in every 24 hours that only works on a laptop (iphone no) and the internet wireless only works in certain areas of the hotel (no lobby or breakfast)

Log in is not always straight forward, can take up to 20 minutes to get it to work but usually it does and after that it works ok until 24 hours later when you have to go through the whole process again. This means going back to the lobby and joining the Q for another password.

If they can sort out this terrible internet system then this will be a real gem of a hotel. At the moment I highly recommend it...unless you are internet dependent.

Room Tip: Top of hotel (8 floor) was best for me.

Very conveniently situated hotel close to center and very close to railway station and conference hall. My room was modern and well appointed with normal mini-bar etc. If you like a firm bed - this is the place! Breakfasts excellent. Salmon, cheeses and cold meats with salad, eggs, sausages, bacon....Very efficient young manageress who was instructing other staff as well as greeting and escorting guests to tables, serving coffee and clearing. Reading other reviews they seemed to have corrected the points raised.
Liked this hotel!

Room Tip: My room was very quiet. Others may not be?

I stayed in this hotel during my business trip 25th-27th of September. Generally, it's OK, only I got warm coffe (both mornings) while I asked for hot one, repeated, no service, maybe Freiburg people don't drink hot coffe. And 2nd remark, on 26th of September I couldn't get Internet access from the receptionist while I paid for that, very strange and he was quite unfriendly.... the rest, nice city...

Room Tip: Easy to find, close to DB and to the City Center

Comfortable rooms, size-wise, but a bit worn and dated; all in typical seventies-style.
Unfortunately, the meeting rooms are really outdated and in desperate need of refurbishment (one almost completely mirrored - a nightmare!). The makeshift projection screens don't add to the image as an up-to-date meeting facility.
Very good breakfast and very competent staff at reception.

We did not plan to stay here at first but found out that the hotel we had booked did not have AC and it was very hot during the four days we were in Freiburg. The AC worked sort of, it was central AC, so not the very best but it was better than not having it. It is just two minutes from the train station and has an underground garage if you need it. The internet works but it not a speed demon. Since the breakfast was priced rather high we chose to walk into town to eat at different cafes instead. The room was large and the noise from the street was mostly filtered out. It only takes a few minutes to get into the old part of town so it was fine. If you need AC then give it a try. Another nice touch is that the buffet breakfast comes with the room rate and so that is another reason to give it a try. It is modern and everything works and there is good sound proofing between rooms as well.

Room Tip: If you can get a room not facing the main road it would be quieter.
