“Not glamorous, but most excellent service”
Reviewed 24 October 2012

This hotel looks a little like a 70's throwback both inside and out, but cannot be faulted when it comes to service and I highly recommend it if you are staying in Fribourg on business.
I arrived on crutches with a broken ankle and from that moment on all of the staff went out of their way to help and support me. Check in was perfect and very uncomplicated. The bedroom was rather jaded in terms of decor, but had every amenity and was comfortable and extremely clean. The Wi-Fi was available throughout the hotel and very fast.
Breakfast was very good and again, the service superb.
The conference facilities are very efficient and any needs are responded to immediately.
Lunch was of a very high standard and innovative (although service a little slow for our group).
As a seasoned and hard-to-please business traveller (40 overseas trips a year), I am most impressed and am actually looking forward to staying there again in January.
Worthy of particular mention is Anna (Reception) - I cannot praise her enough for a most personal and friendly service - it was like having a personal assistant!
Do stay here, maybe not for a typical Swiss 'romantic' setting, but for comfort, service and efficiency!

You always wonder how swiss hotel justify their rates! This 4star hotel does not have air condition in their rooms. It is not just out of order - it does not exist! With 28°C outside and this orange-redish carpet the room is unbearable. Although it matches the swiss standard of cleanness und the staff is friendly.
Breakfast is rather standard with fruit salad from the can.

Good hotel for my business visit in beautiful town Fribourg, but hotel auparc is just basic at a price of 4 star. Hotel needs renovation of rooms, carpets as well as better heating as well as need to have airconditioning so that on road side room, you can sleep well otherwise noise of vehicle makes you crazy next day. In summer, please bring Fan with you, as otherwise, you will be sleeping with door open in noisy. Good location but needs upgradation to rooms, mirror as well as showers.

Room Tip: Go to highest floor, avoid first, second floor.

Au Parc Hotel is a little way uphill from the centre of Fribourg (or, if you've come from the medieval heart of the city down by the river, even further uphill). The climb is worth it for the stunning views at breakfast (and the breakfast itself is excellent too). The rooms and corridors, however, are strangely 1970s in ambience, all beige and sandy colours, and in our room the air conditioning didn't work; it felt muggy and stale as a result. Lovely staff, but the place is crying out for better interior decor.

Fine hotel for the price (About 150 Swiss francs prpn) Located about 1/2 mile from the city centre rail station, up a hill on the Villars road, in the beautiful old city of Fribourg. The hotel is well appointed and clean. Rooms are moderate sized, probably typical for a 4* corporate hotel. Beds are comfortable. A moderate amount of road traffic noise can be heard sometimes. A well appointed bar, which is however often left unattended due to staff shortages. Breakfasts are typical continental. Cereals Cheese, cold meats, eggs, bread and coffee.

Generally recommended.

Reviewed 15 April 2007

My family of 4 (kids ages 5 and 7) needed a place near Fribourg from which to visit relatives for a few days. We wound up renting an "Apartment" at the Au Parc Hotel in Fribourg. The price was extremely reasonable, and actually cost less than a regular room at the hotel. It is very difficult to find rooms in Europe that accomodate a family of 4. In our apartment at the Au Parc, we had one bedroom with a bed for 2, and 2 twin beds set up in the living room. Even with the extra beds, there was plenty of room. The living room/kitchen area had a couch and plenty of chairs, and a large dining/cooking area that was fully stocked. The best part was that there is a mini-supermarket located under the hotel that has everything you need for a stay. It was so convenient and such a pleasure to be able to have breakfast and snacks every day in our room. The hotel, while not in downtown Fribourg, was very close to the town, and a 5 minute drive to the Autoroute to take you everywhere. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and everyone spoke English. While the accomodations aren't super modern, we really had no complaints at all. We would definetely stay here again and would highly recommend the apartment for families.

  • Liked — Spacious, fully stocked apartment.
  • Disliked — Not within walking distance of downtown Fribourg
