I used La Rose as a base for a couple of days to explore Fribourg. Excellent location to wander around the town and discover its many museums and sights. The staff was very friendly, helpful and efficient; the room comfortable, clean and with all necessary amenities (dressing gown, slippers, etc available on request). I particularly appreciated the fact that, unlike many other hotels, I could use my computer/access WiFi in my room free of charge. Only disappointment was that I couldn't access English speaking TV channels and had to do quite some juggling with a rather spartan shower curtain. Other practical info: parking spot just outside for which I paid CHF10 per day was good value; only breakfast is provided (optional) but there are so many restaurants nearby that this is not an issue.
One possible downside if you are a light sleeper and, as I do, like to have your window open at night - the hum of traffic is fairly constant and the church bells chime every 15 minutes (including throughout the night). Perhaps worth asking if there are quieter rooms in the hotel; otherwise take some ear plugs!
Overall though, I highly recommend and would stay here again.
