First I have to confess that I am biased since I grew up in this building in Fribourg, Switzerland from Age 10 to age 18. This is a - from the outside not so attractive - high rise building (17 floors) in Fribourg. The building is about 30 years old but solid. The hotel rooms reach from about floor 5 to 12 (even though in the elevator the floors are labeled from 2 to 9). The rooms are very large by Swiss standards with large windows that let in a lot of light and nice view of the city on the North side and the Pre-Alps on the South side. The rooms and bathrooms have been renovated and are modern and clean. Some of the criticisms of the hotel such as slow internet (WiFi, it is now free !) and not enough bedding (small pillows, only one per bed) and short blankets are justified. However, still the rooms are luxurious by Swiss standard. The lobby is nice and the breakfast buffet is definitely above average. One of the best things about the hotel is the fantastic location, 2 minutes from the train station and close to shops and the old town and university. The staff is very friendly but a but young and inexperienced and doesn't seen to know the city very well. The town was very full because a visit from the Dalai Lama the next day. Overall this hotel has earned my vote of confidence and I will be coming back.
