I was visiting Switzerland and this hotel was really great. Excelent location, you can walk to the Cathedral and to a couple of pretty places. The staff was just the best, super friendly!! Ready to support!! In all instances, even with technical issues that I had (problems with my charger)

I stayed one night in this beautiful heritage property. People are very friendly and give a good service.
The location is perfect.

I was coming a long way from India via Paris and Geneva in one day, and this hotel was an ideal place to rest.

I just had breakfast there (very good). For dinner I went out to nearby Casa Juan.

I can't fault this place even though it's right opposite the cathedral. The bells weren't too bad!

The buffet style breakfast was good. There's no restaurant but just across the square is the Cafe de Gothard which does very good traditional Swiss food. [Try the fondue]

Free Wifi and car park.

This Hotel is in a great location for Fribourg if your a tourist.
I stayed for 2 work visits of 13days each.
Car parking can be difficult, expect to wait up to 30-40mins to find a park at around 6-6:30pm. (Cost me 165 CHF to park during St Nicholas weekend as the town council/Police shut down all parking in the area) that's when I found the hotel can give you a garage park for 15/nt but it's not well advertised.
I found the beds hard, the rooms clean and tidy and the shower was pretty good most days.
Breakfast is just Ok and could take a few pointers from the Ibis out of town.
The staff are All wonderful and really make the hotel a nice place to stay.
Restaurants, Cafés and sights are very close by and as everyone comments this is a top stay based on location.

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.

Perfect location to visit the city, the staff was very helpful and nice. Because we didn't have a room with a nice view, they had left a note in the room apologizing along with a very nice fruit basket. At the breakfast they made soft boiled eggs specially for us. I would stay here again. If you are driving, recommend buying the parking card from them so you don't have to feed the parking meter every few hours.

We stayed here for four nights, and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. All the staff were extremely helpful and very friendly, the room was spacious, clean and with a delightful view of the square. The location was as good as it could be, in the heart of the beautiful old town, at the edge of the shopping area. We are expecting to return to Fribourg next year and will definitely stay here again.
