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.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel and found it very nice. The room was comfortable and clean and we had good breakfasts.

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... More

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... More

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel. The first night in a jr suite which was great. The second night was not so great given there was an awful smell in the room. We had to switch rooms as a result of a mistake I made in booking.
