“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2011

We stayed here for 3 nights while attending a wedding reception in Fribourg. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good. Our room was on the stop floor and overlooked the city. It was very quiet. Based upon reviews here, I requested a quiet room which they provided. There was a bit of a bad smell in the hotel which is a negative although I think we got used to it after a day or so. The area in which the hotel is located is absolutely perfect. Delightful shops and restaurants - all offering great products and food. The kitchen had an out of order sign on it. We took a larger room and there was plenty of space for us. The towels in the bathroom are a bit old and thin. It's not a 5 star hotel but the price is fair for the quality.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

Stayed here on 23d Nov 2011. Receptionist spoke all possible languages, very very friendly staff, next morning absolutely nice lady at breakfast, they even got me a flat iron (brought up into the room).
I really loved the shopping street view from the 5th floor, the room small but very well equipped (the stove had an out of service sign but I had no intentions to use it). The bed was very comfy, the small table lights great, TV and internet worked no problem. I liked the whole room a lot with the french windows and the wardrobes and the curtains.
The only disadvantage is the nonexistant parking but yes the hotel is on the shopping street, about 200 m-s away there is a parkhouse though.

I was very happy with the whole experience.

This is a hotel to be avoided. It does not deliver what it promises. Although the student on the reception desk was helpful, when he contacted the management on our behalf we found that they refused to recognize problems regarding itself as unaccountable because (as we were told) the hotel has no star. Combining lecturing and holiday, we had this hotel booked for us by Fribourg University who believed it to be a luxury establishment. It is nothing like that. The promised WiFi Internet was non-functional. The supposed kitchen in the attic suite has absolutely no dining or cooking equipment except three teacups and saucers, two pans and a coffee maker with no socket to plug it in. the room is oddly equipped, with no proper table or desk for eating or writing. The bed looks good but is not comfortable. The furniture is new but the room is not comfortable and our whole stay was a disturbing experience.

Looks like all of the rooms have been recently remodeled; and very clean. The price was reasonable - 100 CHF for a single.
The hotel is fairly small - about 4 rooms on each of the 4 or 5 floors. The rooms are fairly small but make incredibly efficient use of the space. All have pretty much a complete kitchen behind the walls that open - a refrigerator, stove, sink, etc. Beds were comfortable.
My room was on the "street" side (a pedestrian only street) and both nights was awakened by loud, drunk people walking by. The hotel also has about 1/2 of the rooms on the back side where it is more quiet.
It's a great location as you are walking distance from the train station (bahnhof) and a few meters away from a very good cafe and several other restaurants/stores, etc.
The best breads we ate on our trip were in Fribourg at the shops across from this hotel.
Also the Cafe du Midi (about a 5 minute walk) has excellent fondue.
