Whilst this hotel was in a great location near train station and many shops, the hotel itself smelt stale and was in bad need of fresh air, particularly the hallways and garage. We needed to sleep with the windows open which then became very noisy with the constant sirens down the main street. The restaurant was not open on the... More

We spent 2 nights at this hotel with 2 rooms. Lets start with the good. The breakfast was Ok and room was clean. Now for the rest. The wifi only lasted 24 hours on a limited number of devices, and it was slow at only 4mb/s down and less than 1 up while the bar across the road got 26... More

Spent 3 nights here on business. It is so close to Hbf without any train noise. The room itself was a little bit small but clean and comfortable with a large bathroom. The staff were nice and friendly, offered a welcome drink at the bar. The hotel itself located very close to old town as well so it was great... More

We walked out of the station and straight into this hotel, first one we came to and not a bad choice for a one night stay. Easy for a walk around the old town, shortest bag carry from station in our entire trip. Echo other comments about excellent breakfast and poor internet. I'd like to give it a B+ but... More

Nice and close to both the city and the train station this hotel offers one of the better breakfasts in a smallish hotel but coupled with genuinely friendly staff that seem to like their jobs. Good size rooms, clean and clear. Very sadly let down by a terrible internet service, the hotel provides a new password log in every 24... More

Very conveniently situated hotel close to center and very close to railway station and conference hall. My room was modern and well appointed with normal mini-bar etc. If you like a firm bed - this is the place! Breakfasts excellent. Salmon, cheeses and cold meats with salad, eggs, sausages, bacon....Very efficient young manageress who was instructing other staff as well... More

I stayed in this hotel during my business trip 25th-27th of September. Generally, it's OK, only I got warm coffe (both mornings) while I asked for hot one, repeated, no service, maybe Freiburg people don't drink hot coffe. And 2nd remark, on 26th of September I couldn't get Internet access from the receptionist while I paid for that, very strange... More

Comfortable rooms, size-wise, but a bit worn and dated; all in typical seventies-style. Unfortunately, the meeting rooms are really outdated and in desperate need of refurbishment (one almost completely mirrored - a nightmare!). The makeshift projection screens don't add to the image as an up-to-date meeting facility. Very good breakfast and very competent staff at reception.

We did not plan to stay here at first but found out that the hotel we had booked did not have AC and it was very hot during the four days we were in Freiburg. The AC worked sort of, it was central AC, so not the very best but it was better than not having it. It is just... More
