“Excellent hotel with the best restaurant on our Black Forest trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

My wife and I stayed in the well-located Schwarzwaelder Hof Hotel in Freiburg for 6 nights in September 2013.

Everything was perfect – there was a new very comfortable bed, and the room was immaculately clean and newly-decorated, with a new bathroom and shower.
All of the staff were friendly and helpful,

The hotel is excellently located, in the old town and very close to the old cathedral and the best parts of Freiburg. It is 2 minutes walk from the tram stop, and very close to the walking trails to the Schlossberg.

The one great surprise was that the food in the hotel restaurant was the best we had in our entire Black Forest trip of 11 nights.
We ate in the hotel restaurant on 2 nights and both times we were extremely impressed with the high quality of the food – the ingredients were first class quality and extremely fresh and wholesome. We found it to be so much better than some of the other restaurants which have higher ratings on TripAdvisor.

There are lots of other nice restaurants and wine bars close by also.

There is free Wi-Fi in the hotel but the range did not stretch to the restaurant, which is probably a good idea from the point of view of being sociable!

Overall, we were extremely impressed and we will stay there again for sure.

The genial owner looked surprised as I arrived here for my 4th stay - his booking system had not recorded my communication to him. But the room I always have was available, luckily, and I had a completely happy time here. His brother's restaurant, in the annexe building (where my room is) is also worth a visit - the apple cocktail dessert is fantastic! This hotel offers excellent value and a warm (if surprised) welcome.

The person at the reception desk at this hotel was not particularly friendly but the hotel is very well located behind the wonderful Freiburg munster. Our room was clean with a very comfortable bed but it was very small, especially the bathroom. Breakfast was served in an impressive old room and was a fairly standard good German breakfast. Overall I would say that this hotel could do a bit better but it has some good points.

This hotel is located in a great area - located right in the heart of the old town, close to attraction and restaurants. The rooms were very clean and the staff was always helpful. Great breakfast in the morning. I would definitely stay here again. Wish I could have stayed longer.

I liked this hotel in that it was cosy, staff were friendly, the room was clean and there was a bar and restaurant downstairs (we didn't eat there). it was also in the old part of town where we wanted to spend our time. The problem was noise. We are used to silence, so maybe we were over-sensitive. We were there 2 nights and the first night we were listening to people "partying in the street" until well into the early morning. It also never occurred to us that the cobble stone streets were as noisy as they were - tires running over these make an incredible rumbling noise. The second night the boisterous people were not to be seen; but it was a Monday evening.

Room Tip: Rooms over the street are noisy....try to get rooms over the ally...will not be as noisy.

We stayed in the Schwarzwälder hotel for one night and we were not disappointed. The hotel is in a perfect location, in the scenic part of the Altstadt of Freiburg and easily reachable either by walking or taking the tram (for three stops) from the main train station. Our room was located in the modern wing of the hotel as we had requested and also included breakfast and two public transport tickets for the area around Freiburg. The room had everything one could require - a comfortable bed, modern tv and fantastic power shower. It was also refreshing to see that the hotel provided a good hairdryer (which is not always the case in many hotels). The decor was very nice and both the bedroom and bathroom were extremely clean. We decided to also dine in the hotel on Saturday night and even though we did not have a reservation in the restaurant, which was fully booked out, the hotel staff managed to find us a table. The food and wine were excellent and reasonably priced for the quality of the produce. Overall I had a very positive experience at the Schwarzwälder hotel and can only recommend it to fellow travellers.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the modern wing of the hotel.

I stayed at this hotel for one night only. The purpose of my visit was to watch the Bundesliga game between Freiburh and Hamburg. Freiburg is a lovely city. It is well worth a visit. The hotel is simply a 10-15 minute stroll from the railway station. Simply come off the platform and go upstairs and turn left. Follow the road until you come to Herren Strasse. Turn left and the hotel is some 400 yards on the right. The rooms are in a different location to the reception. My room was small but completely adequate for my requirements. It was clean and tidy. The breakfast was good with plenty pf choice. I would recommend this hotel and a visit to Friburg
