Most of my comments concur with reviewer ANDRENAPAUL who also reviewed this in August. Hotel is in a good quiet location, and it was clean and easy to find and park a car via Satnav. However, indeed, it was hot and stuffy with no a/c. Look, I know it's August in Germany where you shouldn't expect a/c, but even opening... More

More than friendly staff, amazing rooms, good location in a city where u can walk all of the major distances without using any public transportation at all. For us, it was the Nr. 1 Hotel in Freiburg because they feature a cheap and still amazing restaurant/ bar with a nice terrace. Only bad point: The hotel is divided into the... More

To start with the positive, this hotel is in a great location. And it's clean. And that's it. Unfortunately... The staff were very unfriendly, unhelpful and quite rude. The rooms were tiny, hot and stuffy with no air-conditioning, indeed no extras either..no tea/coffee making facilities, ironing board, ect..the things you take for granted at this price. All in all, dreadful.... More

I was a few times in this hotel and can really recommend it. It is one of the best hotels in Freiburg; the rooms are new, they offer a big breakfast buffet, staff is very friendly and the hotel is in walking distance from the city center. The hotel has as well a very nice terrace to have dinner or... More

For years and years we stayed in a nice 3 star hotel and this time I decided I want to up grade myself to a pampering 4 star new hotel. I booked 4 nights, I knew the price would be 119 euros per room without breakfast, plus 12 euros for the garage (you can park on the street on your... More

The Hotel am Stadtgarten is well situated just outside the ‘old town’ of Freiburg. We have stayed twice at this hotel, not in the main hotel building, but in the apartments directly across from the hotel. Parking in the street is difficult, but the hotel has safe parking under the hotel, and another area just round the block, costing 12... More

The hotel is well located for access to old town and it has a very pleasant terrace outside for drinks and food. The breakfast represents good value. We were dissappointed with our room, which was extremely hot and stuffy (even though it was not a warm day in Freiburg). The hotel has no air con and non-existant air circulation in... More

There are two parts to this hotel. A new four-star 'Design' hotel and a three-star 'Guest House' which is across the street from the hotel. My review is for the Guest House. We stayed in room 34 for two nights over the weekend. Though the building for the guest house is old, they have tried to spiff up the rooms... More

We stayed just one night in the guest house. The best thing about it was the price 64 Euros. Had I not been so tired when we arrived late at night, I would have gone back to reception and asked for a room in the new part of the hotel for 30 Euros more--I suspect it would have been worth... More

The Hotel is newly opened and "funkelnagelneu" as they say in the Black Forest, "brand spanking new", so they are still getting used to running it, and (I think) a bit overstretched. Staff are young, enthusiastic, and very helpful. The hotel seems busy, with a young clientele, though we weren't the only "oldies", and weren't made to feel out of... More
