Very good hotel with excellent service and restaurant. Free parking and free wifi. Rich breakfast, nice room and good quality bed. Far from the city center, about 7 minutes by car. We like to stay there and the staff is very helpful.

Lovely place to kick back after 5 hours of driving through Germany, trying to find the wallet you left at a services. The Australian sounding waitress was immensely helpful in pointing out close we were to our unobtainable target! Nah, she was very helpful, polite and professional. The room was comfortable, the shower was powerful and everything was of top... More

The hotel has a rather old-fashioned feel, which must feel right to the retiree-aged guests who seemed to enjoy their stay while I was there. The rooms are large, but may have been last refurbished in the 70s. Still, everything is clean and decent, and there is even a small sauna that works well. I gave it 4 stars for... More

Wasn't really impressed, girl on desk didn't speak English, which is a big no in this day and age. Room was basic but clean, did wait 20 minutes to get served in bar. Wifi was another let down, could only get it in foyer. There was also a must smell in the hotel. Breakfast was buffet type and again was... More

Was in Freiburg for a conference @ the Messe (>20 minutes away). This hotel must have been decorated in the 1940's... with gross shaggy carpet, that becomes part of the furniture in the room! The bathroom was below average and really bad toiletries, which I tend to depend on since we can't carry any liquids in the plane. The breakfast... More

What a wonderful hotel! We have been here many times over the years (we have been coming for over five years) and try to make the trip from the UK at least once a year especially for this hotel. The rooms are large, very clean and comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful and the food in the restaurant superb. The... More

The hotel is outside of Freiburg (about 25 minutes by bus). Positive is the parking and the breakfast was quite nice. However, the hotel is worn out and the best times are gone. You can smell it if you enter the house and your room. Only the bath room seem to renovated in the last years. In my view there... More

Very friendly gentlemen who checked us in around 01.00 am. Very friendly! Nice breakfast indeed! It is a buffet! Great place to spend the night of coming from Italy or going there if coming from Netherlands.

family run hotel with a long tradition. large rooms, good breakfast - all terribly spoiled by the most smoke in a hotel I have experienced in years. Actually illegal for hotels in Germany but after talking to the manager/owner it was clear the smokers were more important that obeying the laws (and providing a good hotel experience). Staff was actually... More

Hotel Zum schiff is not as depicted on their website. I don’t know where from they picked their 4 stars. They are the kind of 3 stars hotel you would find near a highway. This is why I chose it. It is a clean hotel for a stop-over stay but definitely not for any kind of holidays. It is located... More
