Lean luxury for business, as well as leisure guests. Privately run, individual, small & luxurious. Adjoining Freiburg’s old town, on foot only five minutes away from the main train station, and thanks to its location in a side street, The Alex Hotel in Freiburg is ideally situated for quiet nights. Since the new opening on May 29th, 2014 Alexander Beinert and his team will be your personal hosts, welcoming you to the hotel and Freiburg in the spacious lobby area. From there, the bar which invites to drinks, and the lounge with its cozy fireplace giving you space and time for yourself, are easy to reach. Small but mighty: all 39 non-smoking guestrooms are equipped for everybody to find what they are looking for; let it be a good night’s sleep, enough space to work or simply time for themselves. Indulge in the comfortable box spring beds with fine, elegant bed linen. Large windows, air-conditioning in all of our rooms, and a large working space are only some features to the The Alex guestrooms. Let your day in Freiburg start with a refreshing shower, as all bathrooms are equipped with a rain shower. We also offer 4 outside parking spaces as well as 5 parking spaces in the garage. Advanced reservations recommended. The garage is not suitable for very large cars. PS: we are happy to be a smoke-free hotel.

"The hotel was very quiet. I would make sure I asked for a larger room facing east, to get the morning sun."
"The basic room was perfectly acceptable"
"Go for the largest room if you are staying more than two days. It will make a big difference."
"Make sure you ask for the hotel pillow menu. They will bring whatever pillow you request to the room."
"We upgraded to a King size bed and that was great. The rooms are neat, clean and comfortable."
