This trip to Freiburg, for the Christmas markets, was a return for me but a first time for DH. Though I had adored my last visit at Roten Baeren, this time was less stellar, though I must affirm that you will not find any better staff and service personnel anywhere.
I had asked for the room I had so enjoyed two years before, but was given, at first, what was termed a comparable room.
I did not think so. It was much smaller than the other room and with not so nice a view. But it did have good design and lighting.
I was very unhappy, however, that my previous room was not available, so the dear good- hearted staff shuffled things around and got us into my former room for the last three nights of our five-night stay.
Unfortunately, for no reason I can fathom, the room had been kind of stripped down and rearranged: the bed had been moved and lamps on the wall had been taken out, replaced with old creaky table lamps. A pretty fabric sofa had been replaced with an awful clunky leather one..
Still, we greatly enjoyed the courtyard view and the ample space..
Breakfast was included and we found it exceptional, served by friendly young folks.
We also ate dinner and lunch -- likewise very good.
Not sure why there is such inconsistency in the rooms. Location and staff are wonderful though.More
