The hotel is not located in the best part of Fribough but an easy walk to get to the centre and old town. Parking was possible in the garage below the hotel.
I enjoyed the design of the room. The bed was very comfortable and it has a great shower (see picture) The wifi connection works fine.
I had some higher expectations of the breakfast, it was just okay. The staff is very friendly, especially the guys from the reception were helpful.
I only perceived the room to be quite noisy, especially with the adjacent room.
I just have some minor points of attention
- the pressure of the tap is very low and it takes a while before it becomes warm
- the shower door doesn't close entirely what gives a wet floor after a shower
- the door of the bathroom is a bit stuck, you have to push hard to open it all the way
- the ventilation system of the bathroom is quite noisy.
- the curtains were hard to open or close (felt stuck)
But as you can see threes are small things and relatively easy to fix, I hope something will be done with these tips as the hotel has the potential.
Nevertheless I would return to this hotel.
