Great little hotel in the heart of Old Town Freiburg. My friend and I have stayed here many times over the past 29 years! This hotel gets better and better; with its recent renovation, the rooms are modern, clean and comfortable. Great location as it is walking distance to everywhere in the city center as well as there is a parking garage less than 50 meters away from the hotel. Not to be missed is the restaurant which has outstanding food! The best part of staying at this hotel is the owner, Walter! He is so kind and eager to please his guests and that, combined with everything else is what makes this place a 5 star stay (not to mention the competitive price).

Booked this in February through booking.com for a one night stay in July. If you are arriving by car its hard to find so make sure you know where the closest car park is, the hotel is just a very short walk from the right car park exit. When we got there though they said they had made a mistake and were overbooked. The hotel we were sent to isn't one I'd have chosen.

We really enjoyed our four nights at this nicely renovated independent hotel. The rooms are quire elegant and very comfortable and the included breakfast is good. It is very close to the cathedral so be prepared for the 6am bells! We ate dinner here one night and that was also very good.

My sister and I recently had a 4 night stay. Great room, good sized bathroom, clean and excellent service. The staff is what makes this place special. Always helpful providing suggestions on things to do and see but I liked the location as you were near the centre of town and a few mins walk to the station. The quality of the food at the restaurant was excellent. Breakfast on offer was varied and the dinners we had of an evening were typical Bavarian. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who plans to visit Frieburg. Thanks for your wonderful hospitality and leaving us with wonderful memories.

This old hotel has been nicely updated, and is run by a friendly staff. The rooms are a little cramped and we had the misfortune of being there during a heat wave, so comfort scores a little lower than convenience. What is hard to find out from the website (or elsewhere) is that the hotel is VERY close to the Schlossberg Parkhaus, and the hotel provides a discount voucher so you only pay about 10 Euros per 24 hours to park steps away. Everything of interest in Freiburg (and there's a lot) is an easy walk from the hotel, which is in the pedestrian zone. Good restaurants about nearby, so we didn't eat at the hotel except for breakfast, which was typicall and fine.

We stayed in this hotel on a business trip. We decided not to stay at one of the larger modern hotels because we favoured a more traditional hotel and restaurant. We were not disappointed. There is a very welcoming atmosphere at this hotel. Herr Engler looked after us and the service and info he provided was excellent when we wanted to go on sight seeing trips on the railways. We also ate in the restaurant and the food was delicious. Our American and British guests were very impressed with the excellent service. It just remains to say a big Thank You to Mr. Engler and all staff for making our stay such a memorable one.
