We stayed overnight for a sport tournament. It's close to the center. Clean room and bathroom. Prices are average for Switzerland. The only con is that it's not isolated and you can here noise from the rooms next door.

Spent two nights there and found the hotel conveniently situated for my purpose. Rooms are not very large but adequately furnished. Unfortunately you can hear the showers being run and toilets being flushed in other rooms when you're in the bathroom. Buffet-style breakfast ok but don't expect any hot dishes. Friendly staff but reception not manned after 10 pm. If...

Clean, tidy, comfortable bed. Great place would recommend it! Only annoying thing is my Europe adapter plug didn't fit into the hotels sockets. Not the hotels fault though. Ok breakfast- slightly expensive for what we had. Could hear neighbours bathroom noise but wasn't too bad

The hotel is quiet and very clean. Rooms and bed are very confortable. Personnel is kind and professional. It is very close to the city centre, railway station and university. Breakfast is good for quality and quantity.

Loved this hotel, room was gorgeous and close walk to centre. Staff friendly would recommend this hotel. Friburg a really nice city was not what we were expecting. Expensive but we expected that for Switzerland

My wife and I stayed at this hotel and found it very nice. The room was comfortable and clean and we had good breakfasts. As part of a trip around Switzerland we found Freiburg as a highlight and this hotel was part of that for us. It was very quiet and peaceful with good restaurants nearby (the hotel restaurant was...

Good Hotel at about 10 minutes on foot from the center and 5 from the main train station. It's not difficult to find parking nearby. Rooms are not huge but have all you need. Breakfast is good and served in a nice lounge. All in all a good experience.

On the outside it looks like a trendy three star boutique hotel with a great location a few meters away from the train station... My first encounter with the director, who worked at the reception was disappointing. You see, I had gone to Fribourg for a few days for academic reasons and therefore booked rooms with my colleagues. The way...

I stayed there for two nights. I lost a very expensive necklace in the room which was definitely stolen. When I tried telling the owner of the hotel, he started being rude and aggressive before letting me finish what I wanted to say. It seems like a family run hotel and the owner/receptionist is very rude. I have stayed in...
