Small family owned and run hotel. Staff very nice and helpful. Parking could be an issue, we were lucky to reserve a spot in their yard but there is only 1 or 2 spots. Not the greatest location, but it's only about 15 minute walk to Freiburg`s old towne. Some renovation going on, but no inconvenience. Very clean and comfortable.... More

The former Atlanta Hotel has recently reopened as The Alex Hotel. Only open for three weeks, its newly renovated rooms are well equipped with flat-screen TV, air conditioning, high speed internet, a safe, and mini-fridge. The rain shower is awesome! Breakfast buffet features wonderful fresh choices. Winery 29 specializes in fine local wines and beers. The friendly staff is eager... More

It was a good experience to know, as the time was called, Atlanta Hotel. Me and my mother were very well attended. Everyone was friendly, the hotel is well located and comfortable. The rooms are small and there is no ir conditioning, but I recomend to anyone who is looking for a nice and calm place to stay.

Travelling for the first time in Europe, I had very little clue to what I am booking (except the pictures shown on the website). But it was a good experience overall.

Last week, I stayed 5 nights at this hotel for a conference. The people were nice and breakfast was also good.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Atlanta last week and were pleased with the general experience. Our room was a little cold (spartan, even) but clean and neat. Our bathroom, on the other hand, was spectacular--almost out of keeping with the bedroom. The morning breakfast buffet was wonderful, although I would have liked a soft-boiled egg rather than...

My wife and I stayed twice for several days in June in this small, comfortable hotel, which is a 5-minute walk from the train station in Freiburg. It is family-run, and we were welcomed by the owner, Alexander Beinert, who was always very friendly and helpful. (For example, he helped us order a pair of shoes online, which my wife... More

Just stayed two nights in August. This is a nice, neat, clean hotel. The staff are very pleasant and helpful and speak excellent English. The rooms are slightly dated but clean and neat and the beds comfortable. The breakfast is very generous for 5 euros. The Train station and old town are within 10 minutes walk Recommended.

I've stayed at Hotel Atlanta on three separate occasions, and it is one of the few Hotels I've visited in Germany which I can unequivocally recommend. The location is quite excellent; somewhat close to the train station, but just far away from it as to allow a quiet night's rest. The staff is friendly and to my experience, will go... More
