We stayed at the Design Hotel for five days in June 2015 during a heat wave in SW Germany. It was delightful to have AC and to be so close to the downtown. We were on the top floor in a large double room. At the top are dormer type rooms with large dormer windows. It was hot 33º C... More

This hotel is 15 mins walk from the station and only a few minutes from the cathedral. The location is great. Our double room was spacious, bright and very clean with plenty of storage space and a great bathroom. The staff on reception were very friendly. You pay alot more to stay nearer to the cathedral but this was only... More

This was a great hotel. Very centrally-located - easy walking distance to the centre of Freiburg, but on a quiet, tree-lined street. There's an outside bar which is great in the summer and quite popular. The breakfast is superb: lovely breads, cheeses, fresh fruit, salad vegetables, olives, eggs, sausages, fish, yoghurt, quark...lovely coffee and fruit juices. My room was at... More

Nice hotel, located just outside city center. Rooms are elegant and pleasant to stay in. I loved my stay here as I have done a couple of times before. However, beware the gasthaus across the street is very poor quality. The price is much less than the main hotel but not low enough for bathroom in the hallway and very... More

We stayed with a friend there during our road trip in Germany. I have nothing but good things to say about this hotel. 5 minutes walk from the Cathedral, spacious room and very comfortable bed. The breakfast offered a very satisfactory variety of different stuff for all kinds of cravings! The hotel itself is quite modern and with nice attention... More

It is a small hotel, I would not say it is necessary a Boutique Hotel, but they have an excellent services, and because of their services plus the very strategic location they have, really close to most of the beautiful places to see in Freiburg, I give them 5 stars. We booked a bedroom that had another bedroom inside for... More

The Hotel am Stadtgarten (also listed as the Designhotel) is a well-kept boutique hotel just to the north of the Freiburg city center. I stayed here in connection with a local conference and was pleased with the accommodation. The room was spacious with a work desk and chair and ample clothes storage. The bathroom had a shower (no tub). Rather... More

We booked this hotel because rooms would have airco. Fortunately it is a cold day in July. Not all rooms have airco! Not ours.... There is nothing 'design' about this hotel, maybe the chairs in the bar? The rooms are average hotel rooms and, if you check out hotelwebsites, at a reasonable price. But the hotel is really nothing special.... More

Room is clean and nice. I was there at July 2013 with a super-hot summer. There are only 4 rooms with air-conditioning and unfortunately, the rooms are fully booked and I have to make do with a fan. Wifi is not great. You have to request for wifi password from the reception. I guess that's usual for Germay. It's not... More

The hotel has a good location and the staff during my stay was very helpful and friendly. But my room was terribly warm and the room had no air condition. Opening the window was not an option because of noise and smoke from the hotel's outdoor bar/restaurant below the window. So would not recommend the hotel for a summer time... More
