Great little family run boutique hotel. Yes, the standard rooms are "compact" but very well designed and maximises all spaces. The small bar and terrace is also a perfect spot to enjoy an evening drink before going out for dinner or a nightcap on return. Highly recommended the house wines and a Schwarzwäldler G&T (or two)! We cannot thank the... More

As near to perfect a hotel as is possible....apart from slightly small rooms, but this is not a problem. But everything else was perfect. Good efficient response to direct email booking. Car parking was reserved. Arrival greeting wonderful, so nice to have smiling helpful staff after long journey. Ultra modern, well planned rooms A/C worked, and was needed as it... More

The Alex Hotel is a small hotel with only 39 rooms. The location of the hotel is excellent. It is located in a quiet neighborhood but only 6 minutes walking to the train station and only 6 minutes walking to the old city and the shopping streets. Another benefit of the location is that it was very easy to find... More

This place is very modern and the location isn't far of a walk from the city center. It's only about 15 minutes by foot. But the rooms are absolutely tiny. I've stayed in cheaper rooms in Paris that were larger for the price. And to be fair, Freiburg does not have near as much tourist traffic as Paris. We asked... More

Terrific boutique, very modern hotel just off the city centre. I have stayed here twice. Once cycling from London to Italy and then again, but cycling from Italy to London. The rooms are brilliant. No views though. Great bathrooms, great breakfast. Very professional staff, all totally perfect. Good bike storage. Slightly difficult to find in a residential type area that... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Freiburg and at the Alex Hotel. The hotel is just two years old so everything looks new. The staff was great - very accomodating. Our room was good if a bit small. Overall we recommend this hotel and Freiburg as a place to visit.

Once again, I have had a very pleasant stay at The Alex Hotel! It was perfectly located near the city center to enjoy some glasses with friends at the "Weinfest". The service level was as consistently high for all staff members as the last times. As the terrace has been finished, you can perfectly have breakfast (or some drinks) outside!

Convenient location a short walk from the main train station and the city centre. Nice designer hotel. Rooms are compact but if used as a base to explore the area then it is fine. Great beds. Shower tends make the floor wet - perhaps it was just me. Breakfast is great value and very well presented with fresh fruit, cheese,... More

Nice hotel, although room was quite small--double bed, although I had explained via email I was traveling with my son. They said they could accommodate us, but when I arrived that was all they had. To move to two twin beds for the next night would have cost a third again as much as the double room. Modern, clean, comfortable,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
