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

We stayed in this hotel for one night en route from Italy to the UK. I have always loved Germany, and found the people to be warm, hospitable and incredibly capable and the staff here reaffirm that view. Our room, like the rest of the hotel, was modern, uncluttered, spotless and with the most beautiful, fresh odour! There was a... More

Recent reviews well summarize the Alex. The first impression is good, with a spacious foyer and everything clean and new. All the staff we met at reception and in the breakfast room were friendly and helpful. The breakfast selection is a good average for Germany and the quality also good, although the milk tastes like the heat-treated kind and more... More

Modern, contemporary design. We had a quiet room facing the backside with open-window facilities but no view. The room sizes do vary from 15qm and 140 m bed size up to the biggest with 22qm with 2x2 m bed size.
