Central Hotel Freiburg
Reviewed October 2, 2013

This is the third time we have stayed at the Central, on the advice of friends who reside in Freiburg. We find the room to be comfortable and the closet system to be very helpful.
The location is ,of course, very convenient to the city center. The breakfast has a nice selection of hot and cold offerings.
As Americans in Europe, we avoid the large chain hotels, preferring smaller establishments.
The Central is one of the best we have experienced.

It is a cosy and nice place with a really helping and kind staff. However I wouldn't say it deserves as much as 4 stars. The hairdryer didn't work and the service took my towell and did not renewed it... and I found it once exiting the shower. They are only few details, but I consider that a 4 stars hotel should not allow it.

We only stayed one night while touring around the Black Forest, but the room was clean and comfortable, and as the name of the hotel implies, the location offers easy walking distance to any area of the Altstadt.

The hotel offers parking on request in an underground garage for 9 EUR/night (with in/out if you want to leave a deposit for a garage passcard), which seemed reasonable compared to other garage rates in the area. There was a wide selection of items at breakfast, and the service at this family-run hotel was welcoming and friendly. It fulfilled my expectations.

This is a not too big hotel in the middle of Freiburg, a German university town near Switzerland and France. When the hotel is not filled to the rim with guests, they will offer rooms for lower prices (also visible on the internetsite of the place). Rooms are not too large, but adequate, as are the in-room bathroom facilities. During a hot summer you may want to ask for a room on the top floor since only those rooms have a/c. The other rooms are equipped with a fan.
Breakfast is wonderful.

Room Tip: hot weather? then ask specifically for a room with a/c (top floor). other room are equipped with fan...

A bit hard to find even with a gps. Only 4 parking spots in front of the hotel and parking is pricey for such a small hotel. We had 2 single rooms during our stay in June 2013 and they were surprisingly roomy for a standard room type. Walk in small shower in bathrooms. Breakfast buffet was good and plenty. Location is excellent, near major shopping streets and real close to the old part of town.

I spent only two nights at the Central Hotel, but I was quite impressed. The hotel is on a side street in the center of the old part of Freiburg. The front desk staff went out of their way to make sure I had a pleasant stay. My room was spacious, quiet, and very nice. I did not notice any problems with cigarette smoke. The breakfast was better than most Continental style breakfasts. My room was very quiet.

The hotel is located quite close to the old town, probably a 15 minute walk from the train station. The staff were very friendly during my stay, but the hotel is very outdated and in need of a facelift. If it don't plan on spending much time in your hotel this place is acceptable, but its more like 2-star rather than 4 (as advertised). Breakfast was quite good, Internet costs an extra 5 EUR per day (which is a pet annoyance of mine!).
