The hotel Minerva is really well located close to the train station but in a quiet area. It occupies a big house. The room we got was very reasonable, with a very comfortable bed, enough surfaces to leave stuff and a totally fine bathroom with a shower. The staff is really nice, they make the effort to speak to you... More

Not only is the Hotel Minerva ideally located about five minutes walk from the train station and a short stroll to the town square, it’s peaceful, spotlessly clean and incredibly comfortable. The hotel worked exceptionally well for our five night stay; the peace and quiet of our courtyard-facing corner room was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here (and they... More

My wife and I recently stayed here while visiting our daughter is is working with the Bosch Foundation in Freiburg for a year. The Hotel is very convenient to the Railroad Station and is located in the center of town. Walking distance everywhere plus the staff give you a "bus pass" to use. An ample breakfast was served each day... More

We've had stayed in this nice family-run hotel for three nights and woke up every morning with a wonderful smell of fresh pastry from the window. Unlike every other hotel we've stayed, this had a good breakfast, very clean rooms, friendly staff. We've requested an extra blanket (yes, in august...) and got it immediately. VERY IMPORTANT: they give you a... More

Hotel is a short distance from the train station on a quiet side street. About 5 minute walk to old town. Breakfast buffet was good, rolls, cheeses and meats, croissants, cereal, even grapefruit. Room was comfortable and quiet. Reception at front desk could have been much friendlier when checking in and out.

We stayed four nights including two nights of the Easter break. Location was perfect for us: a short walk from station, in a quiet side street, and a pleasant stroll past appealing shops into the area near the cathedral. We booked a non-smoking larger room and were pleased with the size of room. We had no problems with the bathroom.... More

Situated on the edge of the city, this hotel was easy to reach, and although there is only on-street parking: this wasn't a problem in February. The hotel is on a quiet side street so my sleep wasn't disturbed by any traffic noise. The staff were friendly, and there was plenty of choice from the standard German buffet breakfast. The... More

We stayed there 2 night, services and breakfast are good. Room prices are higher than other cities I visited (Munich, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Frankfurt).
