3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

New renovated, nicely decorated small hotel. 10min walk away frm the city center of freiburg. Everything is a bit tiny. Rooms, breakfast room and elevator. Absolutely fine if you are travelling light. Staff is very friendly and if you are looking for some extra you simply have to ask. Value for money is OK.

The Alex hotel in Freiburg is located just outside the Altstadt area which means a short (10-15 minute) walk into town every day. The rooms are clean, with modern bathrooms but are absolutely tiny (we had one of the larger rooms and it was still the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in). If you're travelling light, you should... More

This hotel is situated on a quiet residential street close to Freiburg's main railway station and also the old city centre. It was recently renovated and the furnishings had a very nice 'newness' to them. Our room looked compact but there was easily enough room for us to unpack and not feel cramped. Bathroom was very clean, and the toiletries... More

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

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.
