The hotel is not located in the best part of Fribough but an easy walk to get to the centre and old town. Parking was possible in the garage below the hotel. I enjoyed the design of the room. The bed was very comfortable and it has a great shower (see picture) The wifi connection works fine. I had some... More

It was recommended by my colleague and it indeed turned out to be a good choice. It is about 300 m walk from the station and is reasonably priced. The surroundings area is quiet and I had good sleep. Unfortunately I could not stay for long since it was fully booked for the second night. I would recommend that you... More

We booked this hotel due to its convenient location and the general aspect of the rooms and in fact, this were its best features. Room is quite big for our european standards and also modern, however, the views are awful. Breakfast was really poor but the service was good, we met there a spanish maid that was very kind and...

I don't know if the renovations are still underway for some rooms or areas of the hotel but we didn't see (or smell) any evidence of it. From the entryway, reception area and intimate restaurant to the room itself, the hotel is beautiful! After spending over 24 hours on trains from Sweden with almost no sleep, my husband and I...

A very good deal in Fribourg! Hotels tend to be very expensive in Switzerland, and this one is quite reasonable. Very modern, clean, design really ok, comfortable. The staff is super friendly and helpful, and make it very clear that they are available if you need anything. Not completely central but still well located, you will get around without difficulties.... More

The hotel itself is very nice and price performance ratio is acceptable. Rooms are comfortable and ours was oriented to a calm street. Bath gives a plenty of space and looks very nice. I am obsessed with having enough light in there which was ok. Staff is very nice. They're young and passionate to help and when asked for they... More

Occupying two floors of a building a few blocks walk from the Fribourg train station, the room they put me in (an upgrade due to being fully booked to #301, a suite) was very well appointed, modern, comfortable, and clean. Judging by the older reviews, the renovation was recent and much needed. They are still renovating the restaurant, so breakfast... More

The hotel rooms used to be judged a bit worn out or old-fashioned, so there's been a total rehauling in Spring 2012. The new rooms are very nice, but... the works are not totally finished yet, or they have been finished recently. As a results, at the time of my visits the rooms had a very disagreeable and strong smell... More

How can this be a 3 star hotel? I have seen youth hostels much better than this one. When you step in your room and you wonder…”is it safe to lay my head on this pillow?” you already know your choice was wrong. We were just unlucky to go to Fribourg on a last minute business trip and all hotels... More
