“A great place to stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

The Hotel am Rathaus is centrally located, very clean, reasonably priced (for the location), and surprisingly quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful, and breakfast is very good. They have free internet and a big library of DVDs. If you want to stay in the center of the old part of Freiburg, this is a great place.

The hotel is really nice with great central location but is really not suitable for families. To get to the parking space you have to drive in a pedestrian only area, the parking is within 2 mins walking distance, but is not connected to the hotel. The breakfast is nice for business people, but not much to eat for kids and the small eating room amplifies every child noise. The big family room on floor 5 is reachable only by stairs from floor 4, which sadly was not mentioned during the order. So, not for families, but yes for all the rest.

This is, as advertised, a three star hotel, but it was very good for a three star. The hotel was kept very clean, and the staff were pleasant and helpful. The breakfast tables were prettily decorated with dark yellow dishes and we thought the buffet was excellent. Our room was comfortable and well maintained, but my husband found the bed too hard. Our biggest problem was with the shower in our room, which was rather bizarre - it was in a tub that was sort of coffin-shaped, at the narrow end, which left little room to manoeuver, and the glass barrier did not cover enough of the tub, so no matter how we tried water got everywhere. Our sons' room has what looked like a much better shower stall, as did a room we peeked in one day in passing. The location is great, and overall I recommend this hotel.

This is a town centre three star bed and breakfast hotel within the old city of Freiburg. Surrounded by lots of excellent shops, restaurants, bars and fast food.

Close to the Concert House and the Munsterplatz - regular markets

Excellent value for money - nicely furnished and equipped rooms - free dvd library. DVD players in every room. Free coffee and tea in the reception area.

Free Internet. Very good breakfasts.

We stay only one night in this hotel. The rooms are ok, excellent bath room. The breakfast is normal but it would be helpful to have a self service coffee machine, the filter coffee is too light... If
you go there when the Christmas market is in front of the hotel, it will be difficult to have a good access to the hotel and the parking, because for the next months the work on the main streets who brings you to the hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are quite

travelled to visit family friend and xmas market. Definitely central go out of entrance and in the main xmas market square. Had car with us, used sat nav to find but slight problem as there are some road works, so left car and easily found hotel on foot reception gave us directions to underground car park. Would not like to park large car no problems with golf. Given room 25, large with 3 beds, very comfy asked and received extra pillows. Lovely warm room, yes noise of bells at night but didn't keep me awake, don't think you'll escape them in this town. Bathroom was good size with bath, hairdryer soap, no other tolitries. Good continental breakfast loved the brioche. Fridge in room with drinks also bottles of water. Hot drinks and free computer access in reception nice touch also can loan dvds from reception. TV in room all german channels. Very clean good housekeeping. Very central able to walk all around town, lovely place so much better than l expected excellent shops. would definitely visit again

Room Tip: ask for quiet room, will always hear bells but less so

It's a very good hotel in a fine position in the city center of Freiburg.
The staff is very polite and helpful.
The cleanliness of the room and of the hotel is excellent.
Breakfast is acceptable (typical continental breakfast).

The street where the hotel is placed is very noisy and the TV available in the rooms transmit only TV channels in German language.
