We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel, service was good, the staff were very helpful. The food was very good and the rooms were clean and spacious. Lovely atmosphere in the hotel the only down side was there wasn't a seating area outside on a warm summer evening and the bar area was fairly small and as it was... More

Our stay in Chur was really only ever intended as a one night stopover before boarding the Bernina Express for an 8:32am departure the next morning. All we really needed was a comfortable, clean and convenient hotel to the train station plus free WiFi, and this Hotel really fits the bill for all those requirements, plus that little bit more......!...

We stayed overnight in Chur on our way from Sicily to Paris by train. I like small hotels for the friendliness and service. And the Freieck fits the bill. They helped us with a fine restaurant selection a walk away and accommodated Joan’s need for a room close to the elevator. It is in a delightful neighborhood with lovely shops.

We had a nice, clean refurbished room with (for Switzerland) a generous bathroom. Big Screen TV and WiFi. The Breakfast buffet was excellent with the usual Swiss staple but also some local bread. They also have a nice, cozy little bar. The owners very courteous and helpful. The location is in the Altstadt from where you can walk (minutes) to... More

I read the reviews before booking this excellent hotel and saw several mention the bells. We presume that the bell tower was experimentally modified by the inventor of clockwork here in Switzerland. It now launches into a random cacophony of bells roughly every 15 minutes throughout the day and night. This presumably only affects some rooms in the hotel, which... More

The hotel is close to the train/bus station in the old town near the shops, restaurants, and bars. It is clean and modern. there is free WIFI and a good breakfast is included. Everybody is very nice, and for Switzerland the price is reasonable. Ask for an upper floor.

Who would have imagined that a/c would be needed in Switzerland! The large windows in the very modern room opened but the noise level from the streets made for a difficult sleep. The hotel is located in a pedestrian only area, but is heavily walked at all hours. The church bells were romantic until about 2 a.m. and some reason... More

We stayed here as part of the Great Rail Journey to Switzerland. Martyn the owner met our group at the station and gave us a very warm welcome then took all our suitcases by van the short distance to his hotel. This saved any bottleneck at reception and were quickly delivered to the room. The hotel was charming and recently... More
