I stayed at the Freisinger Hof last year, based on TripAdvisor's good reviews, and just loved it. I returned this month for a 4-night stay and again had a great visit. The hotel hit all the marks that matter to me. The rate was good value -- €100 for a single room, including free wi-fi and parking. Free parking was important to me, since I had a car both times. (Both secured underground and unsecured outdoor parking is available -- the underground spaces are quite narrow, though). The breakfast was a reasonable (for Europe) €10, especially considering the quality and wide variety of offerings -- best hotel breakfast I've had in Europe.
The hotel is very charming, from the decor to the staff's traditional dress to the hand-drawn signs in the rooms. It's located in a leafy, quiet residential neighborhood (more on that later). The rooms are small and basic (I had singles both times) but highly functional, providing all the essentials and some extras. The bed was comfortable, good storage was available (3 section wardrobe unit with a closet and 2 sections of shelves, including a fridge/minibar and safe), a sturdy desk, comfortable chairs, good lighting, flat-screen TV with good channel selection (a few in English), and a very good wi-fi signal (good enough for streaming video). Note that although the materials in the room say the rooms have only wired access, wi-fi is actually available. The bathroom was good-sized, modern, and immaculately clean, and some amenities you often don't get in Europe were provided (bar soap, washcloth). Not a thing to criticize about the rooms. A nice touch was a plate of fruit in the room, replenished daily. The room and the hotel's public areas, even the underground garage, were clean and impeccably maintained.
Staff was very pleasant and helpful. We didn't eat at the hotel's restaurant (located in a separate building next door), but did have a beer in its pleasant back garden. There are also a terrace with tables and seating behind the hotel. The restaurant looked very nice and seemed to be very popular.
The one potential downside of the hotel is its location. It worked well for me, since I had a car and it's very easy to reach from the A9 autobahn (only two turns required). But there's not much located within close walking distance. However, you can get to the city center in about 25 min. via bus 50 (about 2 min. walk from hotel) and U-bahn. Alternatively, you could take a tram to a different U-bahn from the same location, but that takes a little longer. The front desk sells the necessary tickets.
You should also note that the hotel does not have A/C, which could be a problem in hot weather. My visits were both in September, and the weather was pleasant (in the 70's). It cooled off overnight enough so I could sleep comfortably with the window open. I recommend requesting a room on the back side of the hotel. The front faces a somewhat busy road, and could be noisy with open windows. The backside is quiet and overlooks tall trees, beyond which is a farm. Besides providing a nice view, the tall trees should also help keep the room cool.
