We liked the hotel am Stadtpark in Freiburg, a nice university city. The hotel is at a 5 minutes stroll of the heart of Freiburg, full of Café’s, Biergarten, wine drinkeries (huh). The hotel has free and good wifi, a garage, a good breakfast buffet, outdoor seating for beer or wine or lunch and dinner. Staff is welcoming nd very...

Strengths The staff are very friendly. Rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable. There is an air con unit in each room when room gets too hot. Nice play to sit outside and have a drink. The hotel restaurant serves good meals. Unbeatable location 5 mins walk to the Munster and Old Town. If you have a hire car, tell the...

We stayed at the Design Hotel for five days in June 2015 during a heat wave in SW Germany. It was delightful to have AC and to be so close to the downtown. We were on the top floor in a large double room. At the top are dormer type rooms with large dormer windows. It was hot 33º C...

This hotel is 15 mins walk from the station and only a few minutes from the cathedral. The location is great. Our double room was spacious, bright and very clean with plenty of storage space and a great bathroom. The staff on reception were very friendly. You pay alot more to stay nearer to the cathedral but this was only...

This was a great hotel. Very centrally-located - easy walking distance to the centre of Freiburg, but on a quiet, tree-lined street. There's an outside bar which is great in the summer and quite popular. The breakfast is superb: lovely breads, cheeses, fresh fruit, salad vegetables, olives, eggs, sausages, fish, yoghurt, quark...lovely coffee and fruit juices. My room was at...

Nice hotel, located just outside city center. Rooms are elegant and pleasant to stay in. I loved my stay here as I have done a couple of times before. However, beware the gasthaus across the street is very poor quality. The price is much less than the main hotel but not low enough for bathroom in the hallway and very...

We stayed with a friend there during our road trip in Germany. I have nothing but good things to say about this hotel. 5 minutes walk from the Cathedral, spacious room and very comfortable bed. The breakfast offered a very satisfactory variety of different stuff for all kinds of cravings! The hotel itself is quite modern and with nice attention...

It is a small hotel, I would not say it is necessary a Boutique Hotel, but they have an excellent services, and because of their services plus the very strategic location they have, really close to most of the beautiful places to see in Freiburg, I give them 5 stars. We booked a bedroom that had another bedroom inside for...

The Hotel am Stadtgarten (also listed as the Designhotel) is a well-kept boutique hotel just to the north of the Freiburg city center. I stayed here in connection with a local conference and was pleased with the accommodation. The room was spacious with a work desk and chair and ample clothes storage. The bathroom had a shower (no tub). Rather...

We booked this hotel because rooms would have airco. Fortunately it is a cold day in July. Not all rooms have airco! Not ours.... There is nothing 'design' about this hotel, maybe the chairs in the bar? The rooms are average hotel rooms and, if you check out hotelwebsites, at a reasonable price. But the hotel is really nothing special....
