The hotel is modern and clean but a little basic. The staff were helpful but breakfast was very limited and there are no coffee facilities within the room. The hotel is located a 10 minute tram ride outside of Freiburg and there are limited amenities. Price seems to be a little too steep for the amenities provided. Very Very lousy air conditioning.

The hotel is situated a bit outside of the city. It has a parking but it is so badly done that I touched the wall on the exit ramps... and I am very careful ... in the room : Too much tramways noise from very early until very late ... Which almost force you to keep the window closed during the night Staff is friendly... bar at reception is open 24/24 ... good choice overall but not perfect neither

Dear Gvann, thank you for your feedback. It's very sad, that your night was not as quite as you wished. But don't forget that we are a city hotel. Our windows are with 3 glasses and you don't need to open it, becuase we are a standard-passive-house. The air is regulated by itself all the time, so that you have fresh air in your room. The parking situation in our urban and green part of the city which is nearly car free, is difficult and we are very happy to we have a cooperation with this garage. Overall we hope you had a good time in Freiburg and maybe we can welcome you another time again in our hotel! Kind regards your Green City Hotel Vauban Team

This hotel is quite nice and stands out in the crowd. It is located in an area that has a lot of student housing and there is no on street parking. The hotel does have an area in front for bag drop off though it was not initially apparent- I had to go in and ask at the front desk. I enjoyed the hip, boutique appearance of the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The check in process was otherwise straightforward. There is no on site parking, but the hotel has an arrangement with a parking garage across the street below a grocery store. Be aware that the garage isn't open 24 hours. When we checked out, my husband had to find the entrance behind the building to get in. We reserved the suite for myself, husband and mother. There were two well-placed rooms and an outdoor balcony. I loved the windows! You could open all the windows and get a pleasant cross breeze. The common sitting area was very pleasant. Our room looked down on the street. We were able to get around quite easily on the metro; the station platform was a few steps away from the front door right across the street. The hotel doesn't have an onsite restaurant. We were given the name of a restaurant nearby and brought our food to the hotel to eat. However, the front desk does serve multiple duties as hotel check-in, conference room desk and bar. In the evening, even patrons from off the street come in to be served. I truly enjoyed this hotel.

We spent one night (hotel was booked up for the other nights we wanted). We had a room with a balcony that had chairs and a table where you could sit and enjoy the sunshine. The bed was very comfortable. The decor is very modern with clean lines and no frills - which I liked. The WiFi was limited - we could not do some of the work we planned to do. The lobby is very spacious and feels like a spa. We did not eat breakfast, but the offerings looked good - mueslis, cheeses, meats, breads, fruits. The staff were very nice and most spoke English, but even the one I spoke to with my limited German was able to understand. I really like the inclusiveness here. The front desk were very helpful when I needed to print a bus ticket. Parking is across the road and is discounted.

We stayed at the Green City Hotel Vauban while visiting the area. The hotel itself is very clean and modern. The rooms are a bit small by American standards. However, the beds were very comfortable and the closet was a decent size. The bathroom was nice and the shower had great water pressure. However, the glass doors were a bit awkward and it was hard to shower without getting the bathroom floor all wet. The hotel provided liquid hand soap that doubled as body gel and shampoo. The hair dryer in the room was excellent. Very powerful. While the instructions for the room stated that the room is climate controlled, we did not get the temperature to change either hotter or colder. We did not find any way to change the temperature and we never asked as it was about 60 degrees outside and we did not really need heat or air conditioning. I am not sure if there truly was air conditioning. That would be a concern in the summer. We did not have breakfast at the hotel as it was 12 euros a person and if you wanted hot eggs prepared it was additional money. We ate breakfast elsewhere as there are plenty of bakeries and cafes to go to. There was one bakery and a grocery store right across the street from the hotel. Also, the hotel is across the street from the tram and bus stop, If the windows are open in the room, it can be noisy. The hotel staff was very friendly and spoke English fairly well. When I asked about how to get to certain places, other than in town, they needed to look things up on the computer, but they willingly did so. The wifi did not work great i n our room. It worked well in the lobby. The area of Vauban is very nice, but about a 5-10 minute tram ride from town. The hotel gives each guest a complimentary tram/bus pass for the duration of the stay. This was a great help as the rides can get very expensive. We were happy to be away from the noise and traffic of Freiburg city center and taking the tram back and forth was very easy and enjoyable. This hotel was very good value for the price and I would definitely recommend it.

Love Parenttravel46, Many thanks for your extensive and positive feedback! It's so great that you took the time to write down all your impressions of your stay. It was a pleasure reading it! Other guests get a really good overview due to your comments. You have gone into details, such as the hair dryer, the water pressure or the shampoo. This gives a very good overall impression of our house. Especially the praise to our staff really pleased us! The service stands and falls in a hotel with its staff and we are very grateful that our team is so popular to our guests. For breakfast we don't offer special egg dishes for extra costs. On our buffet we serve scrambled eggs and boiled eggs. And as you already wrote, there are other breakfast options in the direct surrounding if you don't want to have breakfast in our hotel. We would be very happy if we could welcome you another time! Thanks again for your great review and many greetings from the entire team! Your Green City Hotel Vauban
