Reviewed 5 December 2013

The hotel is well situated in the centre of Fribourg, nice and easy to visit every thing, pity that the TV had no English channels, it was meant to have but none of them worked.....for hotel of this level it should. Free internet that ok, restaurant is not that good you are better of going to one of the restaurants near the by.

I have stayed at the NH Fribourg on several business trips over the past few years. One things for sure you won't miss it - it's a bit of a monstrosity and can be seen from all around Fribourg. Reception is pleasant enough with a nice bar and friendly staff. Breakfast is just ok, nothing special. The rooms are clean and comfortable enough but a bit shabby around the edges - chipped furniture and paint around doors. They have now added free Wi-Fi in the rooms since my last visit Rooms on the Grand Place side can be noisy till late due to the pubs, club and taxi rank in the square, so best try for a room on the quiet side. Overall this hotel is just about ok, but not my favourite in Fribourg.

Room Tip: Don't get a room on the Grand Place side if you want to get some sleep.

I recently stayed 3 nights at the NH Hotel in Fribourg. It was thoroughly unsatisfactory.

The room was so small that the bed occupied the entire width of the room. Access to the window required climbing over the bed, and access to the window was critical so that it could be opened - the room was boiling hot all the time and only with some fresh air entering through the open window was it possible to sleep. Fortunately, I discovered a portable fan hidden away in a closet, but in order to plug it in, I had to drag the desk away from the wall and unplug the TV because there were no other outlets in the room.

The bathroom was proportionally just as small as the bedroom, with a shower that barely permitted me to extend my arms enough to wash. The bar of soap that was offered was tiny, and was not replaced during my stay, leaving me with a piece about the size and thickness of a postage stamp.

Noise? I participated in my neighbor's phone conversation with his wife at 12:30 A.M.

All together, I am sure that any other hotel would be a better choice.

The hotel has a very good location, very friendly staff. BUT is has the most terrible rooms I have ever stayed no temperature controls even during Fall the rooms are like ovens.
For the ones interested there is a trashy strip club right next door.

The worst room I have stayed in on a business trip. It was like a prison cell, with no environmental controls (unless you include the fact that the window can be opened). The only advantage is that it is close to the train station for a quick exit.

The hotel location is very good: very close to the station and the old town. Just around the hotel there are various clubs: night-life was very active on Saturday night. For this reason I suggest a room in a high floor. The staff has been very professional and kind.
The only issue was that the room wan not very big and not in perfect conditions. Furniture looked quite old and there where some scratches. Also the acoustic insulation was not the best.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor

Well, there’s no getting away from it. The hotel is by far the ugliest building in Fribourg. No matter where you are in Fribourg, you can see this hotel. It is an eyesore.

But, inside reception, it has been redecorated to a high standard, the staff are very helpful and polite. The bar area and breakfast area are very clean, and again waited by very helpful staff.

The room I stayed in was a superior room on the 8th floor. The views over towards the river and pre-Alps were amazing. The windows open wide, which is a nice change. The room is VERY spacious, but needs modernising. They look like they were last decorate in the 70’s. But are VERY clean, and the beds are VERY comfortable.

All in all, if you get past the ugly building, and the dated rooms (no aircon, would not stay in summer) the place is clean, central and staff are great.
