We chose this hotel because of its location and history. The room was a little "tied" but acceptable. I agree with other reviewers it has a very 1980's feel. The staff were good with excellent English. Breakfast was good.

We stayed one night in this lovely hotel, having booked very last minute, we got a great deal on suite 21. An old fashioned hotel in almost every way, wonderful service from a glass of sparkling wine on arrival. Our suite was very large, with two big windows looking out onto the main street outside, and a massive round shower... More

We had visited Freiburg several times before, and this time we had choosen to live in the very central part of the old city in the company of friends. On our way from the airport hotel staf rang to tell us that there was a problem with... More

I am currently staying in this hotel which looks very nice from the outside. The inside is worn and in my room quite outdated. Room is big but the carpets have multiple stains and the tiles in the bathroom are outdated - everything functioned as expected, hot water, TV etc. However, I choose this hotel for the location and the...

Let's start with very small unattractive room, bedding poor and a pillow that would not qualify as such, top it off with no internet! Very bad start to our stay. So we politely reported our concerns and we were offered a new room in 30 minutes. The new room, much larger and the bath, you can actually turn around in.... More

I felt directly at home in zum Roten Baren. Staff is wonderful, without exception. They treated me with real personal attention in a perfectly natural manner. The hotel is dated. Corridors etc in the hotel look like they were refurbished for the last time in the 1980s. The interior of the room where I slept, on the third floor at... More

We were here with a big family group. The hotel is really ideally situated in the very nice old town of Freiburg and you can walk easily to everything in town. However, there are many, many setbacks: They only have like six parking spaces, so mostly you have to go to a public parking. Although we were promised a discount... More

This hotel is in an ideal location for the Old Town of Freiburg. It is an old building but has a lot of character which makes up for lack of air conditioning, although if the weather had been hot we might not have said that! As other reviewers say it is noisy at night but that is hardly the fault... More

This trip to Freiburg, for the Christmas markets, was a return for me but a first time for DH. Though I had adored my last visit at Roten Baeren, this time was less stellar, though I must affirm that you will not find any better staff and service personnel anywhere. I had asked for the room I had so enjoyed... More
