“Give this a miss”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Having spent 3 nights in this hotel I can't believe the reviews that I have read to date. The only positive is the breakfast which is fine and location to old town. I found the staff to be miserable and unhelpful. It was as if they were doing us a favour by staying there. The rooms are as basic as a Travelodge, bare walls and almost open plan bathroom.
We had 2 evening meals as we were on a Great Railways holiday and both were very average.
On top of this, although the checkout time was given as 11.00am, we had a phone call at 10.45am asking us to checkout.
If you have any experience of decent hotels, give this one a miss.

Room Tip: go to a different hotel!

Stayed here for 3 nights with Great Rail Journeys as part of a tour. Very good location in old town a short walk from station. This is a family owned and run hotel, the staff are very helpful. Good buffet breakfast and the two set evening meals we had were very good. Drinks in bar reasonable prices by Swiss standards. Free wi fi in reception and bed room.

We were here for only one night, but a really nice hotel. Huge room and the largest TV of any hotel we stayed at during our 11 nights in Europe. Great staff, excellent location in the old city and very charming place.

Located in the old town, it takes about 10 minutes walk to the train station. Yet with heavy luggages, taking a taxi is still necessary. It cost CHF 8 from the train station to the hotel. Quiet, spacious room with nice decor, good breakfast. Close to the major attractions in the city. It is a very good choice for the city of Chur.

This is the perfect little hotel to stay when visiting Chur. It is in old town but within a 10 min walk to the train station. You are surrounded by charming little restaurants, and historical sites down cobble stone streets. The rooms are newly refurbished with everything you need including ample closets, the most comfortable bed and bedding and if you ask for a view of the old church steeple you will be thrilled. (No coffee or tea in the room but this is par for Switzerland). Do not miss the breakfast buffet..it is without a doubt the best of any served anywhere. The staff is very friendly, eager to please and English speaking. I highly recommend this jewel.

Room Tip: Though I did not check out the other rooms the 4th floor with a steeple view cannot be beat.

We were booked into the Freieck by Swiss Travel as part of a Glacier express holiday. We did get a taxi from the Station but it would have been walkable if it hadn't been so hot and we had a lot of luggage.

The hotel is a mix of styles from very old gothic arches to the Modern rooms we had on the 3rd floor. Very comfortable if plain room with a fancy modern design bathroom (with mood lights!). Breakfast very good with eggs freshly prepared on request.

We liked Chur and the hotel is in the centre of the old town so walking out in the evening was convenient. As others have mentioned the church clock is nearby so have plenty of beer for a good night's sleep, probably better in winter when the windows are closed :-)

Overall very good, I would have been happy to stay longer.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night on the 15th of July, before travelling on the Bernina Express and on to Lake Como and Milan.
Of the four hotels we stayed in on this trip, Hotel Freieck provided the best breakfast.
The room was clean, neat and tidy.
Overall, it was an ideal place for our purposes, being only a 5-10 minute walk to the station.
One concern I have is that, when settling the bill I offered my credit card to the (not very friendly) receptionist who informed me that there would be a 2% charge for using it. When I said I would use my Debit Card instead, she informed me that the 2% charge would still be made and mumbled about it being 'a Visa issue'..
