At 10 minutes on foot from the railway station, this small hotel is situated in a small street in which cars cannot go. It is thus quite (some of the rooms overlook a courtyard). Rooms are well equipped with even a small kitchen if needed. Besides, the breakfast is varied and staff helpful. Ratio quality over price excellent!

I studied at the université de fribourg years ago and came back to visit. The hotel was centrally located and very clean. Very basic but the room itself was not bad. Cheap, clean and big. Never really saw any staff except at check in but we didn't really need them. No frills but good value.

It's hard when you have such a friendly and nice staff, excellent breakfast to write a three star review. Why? Because even with all the effort this hotel is not that comfortable for the most important - sleeping. Our son had a room on the street side. Yes there's no traffic but there is some noise. Our room on the... More

I picked this hotel because of its location; just a 7 minute walk from the train station, going right by the Tourist Information center, so I could pickup brochures and a map. Then on to the hotel. It's surrounded by lots of restaurants and some very eclectic shops. A great location to explore the city. Had a delightful and very... More

This hotel is in downtown Fribourg. We parked the car in a parking place that was not close to the hotel, which was a little bit of a hassle with the bags. It is expensive to park there - 20 euros for less than 24 hours. But the downtown area was beautiful with restaurant and shops in an old spirit.... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night after attending a concert at the Fri-Son. My room was on one of the higher floors and was quiet and peaceful with a view over the roofs of the surrounding old town buildings. Although rather plain, the room was very neat and clean and provided a surprising amount of storage space. A... More

For some reason it was not available at travel resources I trust, so I reserved the hotel directly by email. The personnel was helpful, and the process was very simple. Hotel is located on a pedestrian street close to the station. Everything was good, beginning with price (lower that other hotels we stayed in Switzerland) to location, to personnel, to... More

The Hotel du Fauon in Fribourg seemed like a nice location in the older section of town but within a very short walk from the more modern section. We arrived early evening and left very early morning, so we did not explore the town more than a walk around after anything but restaurants had closed. We were tired and needed... More

We arrived with a coach, and for that reason the hotel was not well situated, ca. 8 minutes on foot up the hill from the cathedral. But for individual travelers by train the location is great since you can just walk down. Then, one can easily walk from there down to the cathedral, and then further down to the river.... More

Best out of four hotels I've tried in Fribourg. Clean, modern, spacious bedroom; good Italian restaurant. Friendly. Nice class of guest, if I'm allowed to say that. And it was the lowest cost. What's not like?
