We stayed there 2 night, services and breakfast are good. Room prices are higher than other cities I visited (Munich, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Frankfurt).

One of my co-workers recommended this hotel, and I'm glad she did. The hotel staff was very friendly and efficient. The breakfast was great. I had a corner room on the top floor, and it was much larger than I expected. Some of my other co-workers stayed at the hotel next door, and they were jealous of the Minerva. Also included in the price is a transit pass for Freiburg and neighboring area. We used it to go hiking in the Kaiserstuhl on the weekend.

The hotel is only a couple of blocks from the main train station, so it was very convenient. The cathedral and shopping were just a couple of blocks in the other direction, so it really was a great location.

One of the nice touches was that every morning someone went around and lit about a hundred candles. It showed a high level of personal attention to making the place cozy.

At first, at the internet, this looks like an unpersonal chain hotel, but it is not. It is a very charming and tidy little hotel between the old town of Freiburg and its raliway station. The staff is extremely friendly.

Our room was calm, clean and cosy, decorated in light colours (white, blue, green). It was not too big but very comfortable. There is an elevator in the hotel.

Breakfast is good and German; in other words, you can choose between several types of bread and pastries. There are fresh fruits. Breakfast is included in the price.

There is no parking but the hotel offers you discount on a parking house nearby the railway station (Konzerthaus). The hotel also offers you free tickets for the public transports.

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. It is a nice hotel with big rooms.

Breakfast was included and was very good. Lots of options, good coffee and plenty of choices.

However, the rooms are not air conditioned!!! This may not be a problem in March but in July, we almost sweat to death.

We opened all of the windows to sleep but then we had street noise.
Loud Germans seemed to argue at all hours of the night outside of our room. When we finally got to sleep at 6 am, the deliery trucks started.
We were glad to leave the hotel so we could get some sleep.

It is nice hotel if you don't need to open the windows but in the summer, the heat is unbearable.

It is a great area. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. We didnt' have a problem parking but you have to park on the street.
