We stayed at this wonderful hotel for one night. Very friendly and helpful staff, excellent location, quiet and very clean rooms, and very good breakfast. The hotel and the room were nicely decorated with arts from local artists. We would highly recommend this hotel.

One of the main attractions of this 3-star hotel is its location. It is situated across a small side street from a beautiful little city park. Unfortunately, it also sits on a main entry road into the city. It is only 3 minutes walk to Main Station and as such features a constant parade of wheelie luggage passing over cobblestone sidewalks. If you can get by this nuisance and the traffic noise of a thoroughfare street just outside your window, this hotel may be for you. It is clean and the morning breakfast offerings sufficient to start your day. Being privately owned, the staff is genuine in their attempt to provide hospitality. For future stays in Freiburg, I will likely choose a hotel much more off the beaten thoroughfare. Even the InterCity Hotel chain property located on platform #1 of the main train station provides a much more quiet night's sleep. You get what you pay for but in this case, I paid too much.

I stayed four nights at this hotel for work. The bedroom was impeccable and the breakfast very well presented. The rooms were named and decorated after German writers. They even supplied books from the writer in question. Unfortunately, I can't read German so I couldn't enjoy it. The staff were very friendly. They even helped me zip up my dress that I couldn't reach myself. Highly recommended for a stay in Freiburg.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the location is great, the atmosphere is nice. Only good thoughts about this hotel. The breakfast was of very good quality and varied. Would go there again!

Room Tip: Beds were a little too soft for my back.

We were very disappointed with the Park Hotel Post. After reading wonderful reviews we selected it over others in the area. Since we planned to stay in Freiburg for one week, we looked forward to the high expectations we had developed around this property. However, we found that reality is far different than reviews seem to reflect.

The standard hotel rooms are very small for American standards. The tiny quarters make it hard to find a place to set your luggage or even relax in the room aside from the small beds. The beds are very low to the ground and the mattress is covered with a plastic sheet and then just a top cotton sheet and duvet. No bed padding at all! If you move around at night at all, the bottom sheets come undone and you are left atop of a plastic cover - yuck!

The bathroom is tiny as well. A grown adult can barely fit in the shower stall. If you turn around while in the shower you are likely going to hit the temperature adjustment lever and get a blast of either hot or cold water. Very disconcerting every morning. Be ware of the soap in the bathroom, it is a liquid industrial strength blue jell which leaves your skin so dry that it begins to ache! No shampoo or conditioner provided nor bath bar soap!

The breakfast is ok but not what you would expect. There are nice boiled eggs but the scrambled eggs seem to be made from a powder. The buffet runs low on items and when they are replenished it is scarce. We waited 15 minutes for more sausage to arrive and when it did there were only 4 small sausages added to the buffet!

Additionally there is no real lounge area in which to relax at any time of the day. All the common areas are used for breakfast tables, leaving no place to read a paper in the evening other than your tiny room.

Across the street is the Victoria Hotel which is a Best Western. After a few nights at the Park Post we decided to inquire about rooms at the Victoria and even toured a few. All their rooms were much higher standards, even their standard room was far superior at the SAME PRICE. The hotel itself even has a lovely lounge area and many amenities, including a sauna. The hotel is in a grand building with high ceilings and posh details.

Skip the Park Hotel Post and go across the street to the Victoria!

My husband and I jsut stayed at this hotel last week and had a great experience. The hotel is just moments from the main train station and yet it's not a seedy neighborhood, but rather a lovely neighborhood just moments from nice restaurants and the big beautiful, famous cathedral. The front desk attendants were very helpful, the breakfast we delicious, the rooms were clean and the price was very reasonable. We would recommend this for all ages of travelers and we would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view but all the rooms are nice

Stayed at the Park Hotel Post for three nights in early December, 2013. Very pleasant and helpful staff at the front desk, and welcoming on a cold winter evening. My room was excellent, and tastefully done, with all the conveniences a short duration visitor would like. Fridge, comfortable writing table, well-done bed, and a small, but more than functional bathroom. The hotel is well located, and a short walk from all the major tourist attractions, and the nearby Theater Freiburg, an important cultural venue. Plenty of cafes, and bars -- an Indian restaurant within stone's throw, and the cheerful Theatre cafe a bit further on.
The hotel is a short walk from the railway station, so very convenient for travellers.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor seem best.
