We were pleasantly surprised by the Hotel du Faucon. At check-in, we were informed that we had originally been put in a room at the front of the hotel, but that since we were travelling with a baby they had moved us to a quiet room at the back. This worked out perfectly. As other reviewers have mentioned, room layout... More

We came to Switzerland after 4 days in Germany. This hotel is quiet, but it is understaffed and stuffy. There is no staff after 9 pm, and there was hardly anyone around to help us out, we had to figure out a lot of stuff on our own (including the fact that the grocery stores close at 7pm, when we...

My husband and I had just moved to Fribourg and needed a hotel for one night; luckily we stumbled across this hotel on TripAdvisor! We don't speak French, but when we wandered in off the street the day before checking in, the gal in reception understood enough English to communicate with us, which was very welcome. She had a room... More

This little gem is right in the middle of the fun! While it is right in the "old city," it was quiet, comfortable, and a great price. We planned to stay one night but liked it so much, we stayed a second. The room was large, had two separate beds, a kitchenette (unfortuantely our stove/oven did not work while we... More

The Hotel du Faucon is an easy walk from the train station, on a wide pedestrian only street. Great neighborhood, lots of shops and restaurants. The receptionists were very friendly and helpful. There is an elevator which is nice for us tired, older folks. The room we had was very large with large windows that opened. There is a table... More

The hotel is on one of Fribourg's pedestrian streets, just 5 minutes walk from the train station. Swiss cab fares being what they are, that's like a 25% discount off the room rate, which is already quite reasonable. Rooms small, but simply and tastefully decorated. Staff friendly. Reception about the size of a large Persian rug, but that's expected in... More

In this day and age travellers should expect wifi to work unconditionally especially in a first world country. The connections went down in the middle of the night for two nights in a row, thus my low reviews. I felt I had no options but to change hotels. Otherwise this is a decent option in town. It is close enough... More

Central location in pedestrian area. On street parking one street behind hotel free after 1830 or in nearby underground garage. Lift. Large room and bathroom with shower. Kitchen facilities in room. Plenty of nearby cafes for breakfast.

Small boutique hotel centrally located. Clean, comfortable. Loved the orange and yellow colors of the room...bright and cheery. Parked in an underground garage a short walk away. Stayed 4 nights and would certainly stay again.
