“Best value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Stayed here 4 nights. Very comfortable and clean hotel with unbelievably helpful staff. Yes there is no elevator but I am sure the stuff will help you they are that nice.

Short tram ride from the city centre but close to supermarkets and a petrol station just across the road.

This hotel is pretty good located (within walking distance from the city center + next to a tram stop). It is very clean, has spacious rooms with a sink and pretty good beds, has a 24h reception and friendly staff. In Freiburg, this is a very good value for money deal!

Its easy to find, with 2 trams (from Freiburg HBf) stopping 2 mins away from Sonne.
The rooms are small with bathrooms/toilets outside, but all v. clean & always empty.(no queue)
The designer lounge (leading to the breakfast room) is pretty & v. artistically lit with small curios & showpieces
Breakfast is lovely, with dry fruits, egg, juice,etc (it was free for us, since we booked directly on their website)
A good base to explore the Black Forest, Lake Titisee, Drubba & Park Europa

Room Tip: book directly on their website

I needed to find a hotel in Freiburg last minute whilst driving down to Austria and the Hotel Sonne was the only one that I could find with a room - I soon found out why. I was told that they only had a room without a shower or toilet available so I accepted that in advance. However the mattress was worn out and uncomfortable, there were no curtains in the room and it faced onto a well lit street. I was charged an extra 10 Euro to park my car off street (London rates but not quality!). I have stayed in many hotels around Europe over the last few years, some expensive and some not but this was for sure the worst in terms of quality and certainly in terms of value for money. I would not stay again.

Nice hotel, walkable to town with very friendly staff and good common areas. Our room was larger than expected and very clean. Recommended if you don't want to be in the thick of town. An easy tram ride into the main part of freiburg though. Many shared bathrooms and toilets so that is not an issue.
We didn't try the breakfast at €12 a night so I can't comment on this.
No tvs In the rooms but a good tv in the main common area.

It doesn't look much from the outside, and the rooms only serve to confirm this.
An older hotel, on the outskirts of the town centre, at least the rates are cheap.
Good if you're on a budget.
Off street parking is an extra 10 euro a night.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

This hotel is nothing much from the outside, and looks a little old and run down, but inside it is lovely.

Positive: new clean rooms, nice breakfast, nice lounge and lobby, affordable pricing, friendly staff

Negative: slightly away from downtown (15 min walk, or short tram ride), rooms are hostel style so not fancy, noise from hall comes into room, no en suite bathrooms, etc.

Bottom line: a great option for traveling on a budget. Clean, pleasant and practical.
