Novotel Freiburg
Reviewed December 6, 2013

The rooms are spacious and have all the expected 4 star hotel amenities. The Wifi reception in the room was good. Our room faced the back so there was no noise from the railway across the street or late night revellers.

The staff at checkin were friendly and helpful; there was no trace of the attitude that other reviews mention.

We did not take breakfast at the hotel, EUR 18 per person is a bit steep, and there are plenty of cheaper options at the station across the street or in the city within ten minutes walk.

The location is perfect: across the street from the central railway station and only a ten minute walk to the Muenster square with the cathedral and the colourful market (especially good on Saturday mornings).

Freiburg is a very popular destination with Germans and Swiss, and really inexpensive accommodation is hard to find in a convenient location, so from a price/value point the Novotel more than fits the bill.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back

Location of the hotel is great for train travelers, which is what most tourists/business travelers into Freiburg are, as it is right opposite the main station - you can actually see the hotel's facade as the train pulls into the platform. It's a 5 minute walk to the revolving doors of the hotel from the point you step off the train.

The front desk manager was polite if impersonal, and the rest of the staff seemed to take their cue from him. Room was comfortable and rather large by European standards, and the bathroom was adequate. Breakfast was complimentary with our stay and the breakfast buffet was large although certainly not as tasty as many European hotels.

There are several eating options - restaurants, cafes, fast food joints - near the hotel, particularly at the station which has plenty of quick eat places, including a McDonald's. The station also has a fresh food store and a provisions store which is convenient.

Overall, it was a comfortable and satisfying 2 nights for us, no complaints.

Room Tip: Pick a room on a higher floor, nice views of the town from the large windows.

Location of hotel is good, But the staff and service is very poor. Very terrible way of dealing. Arrogant staffs especially at Reception. I will not recommend any one to stay over there. Com.rates are high.

My wife and I spent one night here, visiting some family in town. The hotel is ideally located, just on the border of the old town, but easily accessible by train and by car. The underground car park has direct access to the hotel lobby and rooms. Our rooms was spaceous and everything was very clear. Breakfast offered a very wide choice, and everything was available in more than sufficient quantities. Definitely a very good pick if you want to explore the old town.

Stayed here for one night with family as part of tour to south Germany during school holidays. Great location, good parking close by and handy for exploring the city. We had a superior room, double bed and sofa bed for the kids and also had free wi fi. Hotel is located close to Hauptbahnhof and Busbahnhof. We had room to front facing both stations but due to the excellent windows you could not hear a sound. The hotel has an indoor pool and sauna area. We used the pool but it was it quite cold meaning that you could not stay in it for very long. Please Novotel, heat your indoor pool to allow families with small children to use it. As it was, on that night it would have made an excellent plunge pool after after a sauna. Otherwise a good hotel to base yourself if visiting Freiburg.
We also ate in a local indian restaurant close by called Karma Indian palace - over the road from the Cinemax, it was very good value for money with tasty Indian food .
