Central Hotel Freiburg
Reviewed July 9, 2012

After several stays in a business-people chain-hotel of same price range in Freiburg what a difference the , genuine warm atmosphere in this family-run, quiet, though ideally located place makes!. Large, spotless room, superb breakfast, reasonably cheap overnight parking fare will make us return with pleasure.

This a decent European hotel in a very nive little city. Take a cab fron the train station as it's a little far, The rooms are you typical European motel 6-but not unlivable, the location is not bad and the staff is cool but pleasant.

Room Tip: they are all off the street so one should't make a difference

I really enjoyed my stay here. Although I was traveling as a single they provided me with a nice room with a double bed, which was well appointed. The location was good, and my room was clean. The included breakfast has a wonderful selection and a superb staff throughout the hotel. was hoping for a tub, but in Europe they love the showers!

Room Tip: 3rd floor was great!

Our room was on the 4th floor. The problem was that the elevator only goes up to the 3rd floor which means you have to drag your luggage up and down the steps to/from the 3rd and 4th floors.

Stayed one night with wfe and daughter. Room was a bit on the small side, particularly with a cot added; not uncommon for Europe. Bathroom was small.

Location was close to the old section of Frieburg. Included breakfast was pretty good. Parking available.

All in all it was fine. Don't know how much better you can do for price/location.

I wouldn't even bother reviewing this hotel if it weren't for the lovely young woman at the front desk during our stay, and shame on me for not getting her name. The hotel was in a great location, clean and modern, but certainly no bargain, however, the front desk-girl was so helpful I wanted to take her home with me. She patiently gave us the underground parking directions several times (it is rather complicated to park), and although we only stayed one night, each time I passed the front desk, she greeted me by name. My only complaint - she probably could use some time off, because she was there during our whole stay - from 4 pm until 11pm and then the next morning when we checked out, too.
I'm sure the area is pricey and this hotel is competitive, so I hate to complain, and there is no better location - we walked to the town center in 3 minutes.

Central Hotel is a good hotel. Conveniently located, quiet, excellent staff, decent room and very good breakfast.

However, we are talking about a 4 star hotel at a price which is not cheap. The main drawbacks are: the hotel looks quite old, the toilet is small and with no bathtub (only shower), the pillow was small, the bed clothing was small and extremely warm for summer (no sheets, only a nordic blanket).

And, it was not my case because my room was facing backwards, but some colleagues reported that a truck stopped each morning at 6 o'clock to unload stuff at a nearby supermarket for a long time. It woke they up every single morning. Also, they reported some arguments and parties at night in the opposite house balconies. My room was extremely quiet, though.

Internet was 5 euros per day and it didn't work well either. Not understandable in a 4 star hotel.

In general, the hotel is good, but expensive. Just don't expect the 4 star hotel you see in the pictures, but a 3-star, old hotel and you'll be fine.

Good location. However, minimal parking, small room, only a single towel, only a single proper pillow (a mere cushion for the second guest), and bed clothes that did not fully cover the bed. Wireless internet must be purchased separately. As a three star hotel it would be very good although with a surprising lack of attention to these details. As a four star hotel it disappoints.
