“Average but efficient”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

A few days ago stayed there.
The location is ok. Close to the city center and just next to the train station which is very important. However the air condition is not working well.
It meets the expectations, it will be a good choice with that price for just staying at the hotel.

Hotel and service were very good. This was the second day of a European trip and the hotel and Freiburg didn't disappoint. We arrived early which didn't cause a problem and used the hotel's underground car park which was very convenient. We made use of the hotel's pool before we went into Freiburg in the evening which was great after a day's driving.Breakfast was fantastic with a huge choice. If I do have any criticism, it was that the aircon wasn't working but as it wasn't too hot. it wasn't a problem.But I'm sure that if we has complained, it would have been handled well by the courteous staff.

Great property. The rooms were large and airy, and the staff were very pleasant and helpful throughout our short (1 night) stay. The bathroom was very clean but the shower could have been a bit more powerful. Wi-fi is unfortunately not free, and the room service quite expensive but other than that, a very enjoyable stay.

I think we will avaoid this hotel in summer. Our room was spacious, furniture a bit dated. Mattress comfortable. But is was so hot in the room and you can't really open the window as it will become too noisy to sleep.
There is no aircon in the hotel. We thought Novotel standard means hotels are equipped with airconditioning. But apparently not.
Please replace the curtains, they do not close!
No tea or coffee making facilities. Wifi is NOT free (very oldfashioned) and parking is NOT free either.
We give 2 star for the room for the lack of airconditioning and the somewhat dated furniture.

Sometimes for the experienced traveller, staying at one of the world's larger hotel chains can be a less than attractive option. We were similarly weary about booking a room at the Freiburg Novotel as a part of a three week trip in Europe.

I was so wrong!

The hotel rooms are large. Perhaps best to start with that. Our rooms, (and all the X01 eg. 201, 301 etc.) rooms are especially large to to their corner placement. the staff was very friendly at check in and check out. The room was clean, and well appointed with a desk, two large armchairs, a round table, and an ample closet.

The location is perfect. Freiburg is a small city, and the city center (Domplatz) is 7-10 minute walk from the hotel's front door, along post-card style traditional streets.

We visited Freiburg during the Whine Fest, which must be one of the Highlights I could recommend for any traveller.

Room Tip: Stay in the x01 rooms (101, 201, 302 etc.). They are bigger.

The property is very conveniently located with the main train station across the street and a short 10 minute walk to the historic downtown district. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was good with a wide array of selections. My only complaint was that there was a 9.00 Euro charge for 24 hours of wifi access. This should be included for free. Regardless, I would definitely stay at this property on a future visit to Freiburg.

We stayed there for one night and we really liked it. The family room was spacious and clean. The breakfast was delicious and for everyone's taste. The reception was always friendly. The hotel is very close to the train station. Also the old centre is reachable by foot. There was just one thing that we didn't like and that was the matress which was too warm because it was made of a polyester fabric. As a result we all slept on top of the bedding quilts.
