Occupying two floors of a building a few blocks walk from the Fribourg train station, the room they put me in (an upgrade due to being fully booked to #301, a suite) was very well appointed, modern, comfortable, and clean.
Judging by the older reviews, the renovation was recent and much needed. They are still renovating the restaurant, so breakfast is served on a train to the rooms - yoghurt, OJ, tea/coffee, fruit, two croissants and two pieces toast. Plenty of other restaurants in the area.
Very good and friendly service at the reception, easy free wifi access. Little noise from outside, just from other doors in the corridor.
In sum, a convenient business hotel, well priced, no touristic charm but within strolling distance of the old city, and just a 10 minute walk from the science campus (Perolles) of the University of Fribourg.
