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

I've stayed here regularly over the last 5 years. Its only a 5 minute walk to the "Munster platz" or cathederal square so really close to the city centre. They have a good bar and breakfast area and breakfast is good with croissont, cerials, cold meats, breads, musili fruit, eggs and sausages etc. Its great in the summer when you... More
