“Good choice in a great town”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

I recently stayed two nights in Freiburg and was pleased with my choice of hotels. The hotel is in a great location...you can't get a better location in Freiburg. Parking is also very convenient in the garage located off Schlossbergring. I will say that the room was pretty basic and a little outdated as far as the furnishings go, but it was clean and cozy. Breakfast was very good and convenient. There is also free wifi, and you can get the access codes from the front desk (which was also very helpful).

We spent 4 nights here at the end of April. The hotel is in a quiet street just a few minutes walk from a tram stop. The stop is only a few minutes ride from the train station.

We stayed in their guest house building which is a miunute or so walk from the main hotel. Our room overlooked a very quiet courtyard. Everything was very clean and tidy. There was a small deck with a table and chairs on it which we used a few times. The room was a reasonable size and suited our needs. The bed was a bit on the hard side but wasn't as bad as some we experienced during our trip.

Breakfast was served in the main hotel so you do have to walk outside to get to it. That wasn't an issue at all for us. The breakfast choices were very good. All the staff were very friendly.

There are plenty of restaurants close by. We didn't eat dinner in the hotel but it was always busy. The area was not rowdy or risky at night.

If we go back to Freiburg we would certainly stay here again.

The staff at first may be a little unfriendly but they aren't really, great prices to eat there too. Wish hotels would have irons and laundrettes in Europe. Very reasonably priced food and drink in the restaurant the white asparagus soup is amazing

Room Tip: No irons or top sheets , if it's hot you only have a big duvet. Cleaning staff are amazing I did...

Every year I come to Freiburg for a week. I always look forward to staying in the Schwarzwaelder Hof as it a friendly and local hotel which fits perfectly in the old town. The service is always great and I enjoy staying in the annexe as it means that I get to feel the air before breakfast. the rooms have all been done up over the last few years and are comfortable and clean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who likes to stay in the heart of Freiburg at a reasobale rate and with a friendly and efficient service. in addition, the kitchen of the hotel is very well known and many locals come for dinner at the hotel, always a good sign.

A great location in the heart of Freiburg's car-free (and therefore quiet) city centre. This traditional hotel has been in the same family for over 50 years, and has a timeless friendliness about it. The rooms in the main building (where we stayed) are perhaps a little tired - but the beds are comfortable. The rooms in the annexe are I understand a bit more modern but it would be a 100m walk round the block to get your breakfast. The food was good. Buffet breakfasts are generous with a good choice, and we had a good evening meal in the hotel one night too.

Free wi-fi in the public areas which also works in some rooms.

One think to be aware of - I have no idea how near you could park your car. I didn't have one on this trip - and the hotel is in the car free area.

Room Tip: The rooms in the main hotel are more traditional and much nearer your breakfast. Any room will be p...

We chose this hotel based on the tripadvisor reviews and were definitely not disappointed!! Staying in the Black Forest area we were looking for a more traditional place rather than one of the modern hotels that look the same no matter where you go, so this place was exactly what we were after. We travelled with 2 children aged 10 and 17, so we were given the family 'room' in the loft. This family 'room' consisted of 2 large bedrooms, dining table, and a separate little area with a writing desk. The beds were super comfy and we felt at home straight away. the hotel has Wifi but also has a computer in one of the hallways which was there to use free of charge. Huge bonus since we travelled without our laptops. Every morning we enjoyed a wonderful buffet breakfast and when my other daughter (who lives in Freiburg) came to join us the staff didn't even charge her. We found the staff very friendly and helpful whenever we needed anything. The hotel is very central, so we could walk to most places of interest but the hotel also gave us a free transport pass for the area, so we could catch the tram/train whenever we wanted. I have since booked a room for another family member who also wanted to visit my daughter and she had an equally fantastic time (she stayed in a modern double room not located in the main building and liked it because it was bright and very quiet, which is what she asked for) and I am just about to book again....So, needless to say, I love this place and after staying at the Schwarzwaelder Hof and would never choose another hotel whilst in Freiburg

Booked a double room and a single room here for a weekend stay. Both rooms in the annex. Very clean. Nicely renovated. Breakfast was good both mornings. Easy to walk to most places in old town. Munster is about 5 minutes away, etc. Wi-Fi didn't work so well in the rooms, but was just fine in the main building. Would stay here again.
