“Impersonal but efficient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Good 'international' standard and professional staff. Minor complaints re the room were speedily corrected. Varied breakfast buffet with lots of fruit.

They claim environmental qualities but the hotel is very overheated, hard to get a good temperature in the room. The windows can be opened, but then the traffic noise is disturbing.

This was our second stay. Stayed here in May 2012 and now in December 2012 for a week. The location is great and the room is of reasonable size. The selection at the buffet breakfast table was quite good. The reception staff are friendly and helpful. We were checking on the weather and also the little towns that we should visit and they assist in all ways and always with a smiley face. There is a mac pc placed at the reception area together with a printer and this makes the entire stay hassle free. Lots of good restaurants around the vicinity and it is within walking distance to the city centre where the locals shop and do their daily marketing. We never had enough of Freiburg thus making this trip to see the christmas market. Will be travelling to Freiburg again this May and Novotel is definetly on top of our list. Keep it up, the Great Team at Novotel.

Room Tip: We booked the Deluxe room both times and they are good. Even when we opened the windows at night, i...

Nice hotel, clean rooms, good location, but prices for breakfast are quite high, and no personnel in the swimming-pool area, who could assist. One dressing room for men and women, and groups of absolutely naked men happily swimming in the pool (receptionist said that it is normal for sauna visitors) .

This hotel ranks as one of the best that I have stayed in on a business trip.

Rooms are modern and very well appointed and the décor in general throughout the hotel is very neat and contemporary. Staff were outstanding - very polite, efficient and attentive.

Food was excellent. As we were at a mini conference we had several meals a day at the hotel and they were all of the food was of a very high standard - the breakfast spread in particular was great.

Location is pretty good too as it is right opposite the train station and the main bus terminus; it also has easy access to the town, shop, bars, restaurants, etc.

If I had a complaint it was that the bar did not open until 10:00pm(!?). Our guess was that this was to service the patrons of the Concert Hall next door after their shows had finished. Which is fine but clearly overlooked the requirements of a bunch of thirsty businessmen who wanted (needed) a drink at 7:00pm after a hard day watching PowerPoints!

I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants slick efficient German service, great food, comfort and a good location. An excellent hotel!
