NH Fribourg
Ranked #7 of 13 Hotels in Fribourg
Reviewed August 13, 2013

In a country renowned for its attention to detail - particularly where luxury is concerned - this is a relatively Spartan property offering the absolute minimum requirements for business travel: a bed (designed for very small people), a washroom, and a closet.

Service was friendly and professional, the food in the restaurant was decent, and the property was clean. We were met each evening upon returning by a gang of what looked like bikers loitering outside the main entrance, but they presumably weren't staff so it can't be held against the hotel.

Room Tip: Apparently the rooms on one side of the hall are palatial, and the rooms on the other side - where I...

The NH is a really nice hotel. The staff was lovely, and the breakfast was delish. Our room was the only suite in the hotel, and it was marvelous. The view is great, and it is within walking distance of anything you would like to do in Fribourg. It is a great little town, and the NH was well worth it. We will be going back.

Room Tip: We had the suite on the 6th floor and it was huge and very nicely appointed.

I had a 9th floor view to the mountains, which was lovely, and overall my own experience here was great, but I was one of 7 and all on different floors and areas of each floor.

Overall the view from all, was that the rooms were very warm, and opening the old style windows precarious. Some facilities were quite limiting, eg some no baths, or light and loose wardrobes with security safe that could be easily removed.

The mini bars were well stocked, and the tv had 40+ channels, but only CNN was English! Complimentary internet was worse than old dial up, but hey, it was free for 24 slots (new slot codes available each day).

Otherwise overall the location was great, and staff friendly, but the doors to the passages are not very sound proof, so outside noise is very prominent in many rooms, especially from other door noise. Also if you did open the window, outside noise was very audible as in city centre, with bus routes and sports fields quite close. With that though, is a huge variety of restaurants close by (eg Penguin, which served a large mix, including Bison, Spring buck, and crocodile) and then the shopping centre is 2 min walk away, and the train station 2 min further - so extremely convenient.

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.

Room Tip: Ask for a South-facing room with view of the Pre-Alps

I visited this hotel during a conference. It's a regular 4 star standard. The view to the alps is wonderful. The staff is ok, the rooms and facilities too, but not outstanding. Concerning Restaurants, there are better ones in Fribourg than within the hotel.

I had quite good experience, but there were some things that I found somewhat odd.
Firstly, my room was very large. In fact, it felt almost somewhat empty.
Secondly, no air-conditiniong. Thus, in the morning, I felt a compelling need to open the window in order to get some fresh air (despite temperature being below 0C).
Thirdly, room was partly renovated, with some deco-touch in it, but at the same time, some things were quite worn-out, like the faucet.
Fourthly, promises of free Wi-fi were no good. It would have cost you some and even in the lobby it didn't work and there was 15 min limit for teh public computer with connection.

Breakfast was very nice, though. Plentiful and good selection, plus attentive staff.
So, if you respect good location, space and convenience over personality - this is your choice. But not what I usually search for.

Location is excellent, just 3 min walking distance from the train station. Breakfast was really nice but only service until 10h00, we were on holidays and this was not suitable for us.
Rooms are clean but a bit old, bathroom was modern but missing places to put our toilet stuff.
