“What a great place to stay”
Reviewed July 1, 2009

I've stayed at Hotel Atlanta on three separate occasions, and it is one of the few Hotels I've visited in Germany which I can unequivocally recommend. The location is quite excellent; somewhat close to the train station, but just far away from it as to allow a quiet night's rest. The staff is friendly and to my experience, will go out of their way to help their guests. The breakfast is top-notch. High-speed internet connection is a plus. Additionally, there is a Deutsche Bahn departure schedule in the ground-floor corridor, which can save you a walk to the train station. The pool is not the largest, but nice and well-kept. The rooms are also quite nice. Last time we stayed, the Hotel had begun to renovate some of the rooms with the most up-to-date technologies (new LCD TVs, showers with multiple spigots, etc).

Dear WhiteyNord,

Please accept my apologies for the extremely late reply to your kind comment. In May this year a new era of the family run hotel began.
I would like to take this opportunity to inform you that we will be performing major renovation works from November until the end of April 2014 and that the hotel will then reopen with a completely new product.
We would love to welcome you back again.

Warm regards,

Alexander Beinert

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
