Ambiente Hotel Freieck exceeded all our expectations ! After a 5-hour Glacier Express train ride from Zermatt, we (8 tourists from Thailand) were a bit tired reaching Chur, but felt rejuvinated after a 15 min. slow walk through it's old town, before checking in at Ambiente Hotel Freieck. The hotel looks ancient from the outside, but it's interior is any... More

This hotel is ideally situated for exploring the old part of Chur and indeed this marvellous region of Switzerland. The hotel has an old world ambience , nice bar area and restaurant, and the staff do work hard to serve and please. The rooms are a little basic furniture wise, but have a nicely appointed shower (in room 307), sink... More

Our room although small was just perfect. The bathroom with Coloured lights couldnt be any better (even having a window to open). Beds comfortable although we do prefer to have a proper double. The food was to a good standard considering we were part of a large group. Plenty to do locally especially if you love snow and trains.

Martin Stockmann, the owner of this hotel, has found his vocation. A cheerful, helpful and involved proprietor, he was there each morning at the egg preparation station in his apron, and in the evening helping the distribution of food. This ethos is reflected in the hotel's staff. Room 302 is a fair size, plainly but adequately furnished. Excellent bedside and... More

Spent four enjoyable nights over Christmas in this family run hotel in the lovely Chur old town as part of a railway holidays tour of Switzerland. Very impressed by the hands on involvement of the owner and his wife and staff. Martyn Stockman not only loaded cases at the station but cooked breakfast and did everything in between. My wife...

I stayed in a single room on the fifth floor for two nights. The room was clean and pleasant. The breakfast is brilliant and the staff very friendly and helpful. While the reception area is very well furnished, the rooms are a little basic and the one area for improvement is the bed linen. However, these are very, very minor... More

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely Chur hotel. The friendly considerate staff, pleasant comfortable room, and easy location from the train station were all pluses. We also enjoyed the included breakfast buffet. The historical old town area around the hotel was safe and provided many interesting photo ops. If we return to Chur, we would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here for one night, and it was excellent! We were welcomed by a very friendly young lady at the front desk (wish I remembered her name - she was great!) We brought our dog, and the hotel was more than accommodating. Our room had an excellent view of the town. It was in a great... More

After staying in an awful pension on the other side of the river, we stayed 2 nights in the Ambiente Hotel Freieck's best room! In old town with narrow cobblestone streets, newly remodeled, clean, we had their "best room" - separate bedroom, kitchenette and dishes, refrig, and colored lights above the bathroom entry. Breakfast was ample but "no take aways"... More
