Very easy to find , right at the train station you virtually walk off the train into your
hotel . Being near a train station there is some noise to contend with but of course
you should expect that otherwise you would not select a hotel near a train station.Everything else was excellent , good breakfast selection , very helpful staff , only a short walk from the
old town and all the sights and of course ideally placed for transport links . Couldn't have been
better , thoroughly enjoyed my 5 nights ( I was also running the Freiburg Marathon and it worked perfectly for that too )
In no way do the photographs of the Novotel Freiburg do it justice. I was expecting a British-standard motorway service type hotel. What we got was a really modern hotel, with a large forecourt — perfect for a few biers in the sun — with friendly, helpful staff.
The hotel was simple to find: follow the signs for Freiburg, then Konzerthaus, and there’s an underground car park on the right, as you reach the hotel. If you miss it, just follow the small ring road round again.
The old town in Freiburg is literally a couple of minutes away.
Very centrally located hotel in old-town Freiburg. This hotel exceeded expectations. The staff were all friendly and helpful and spoke english (my german consists of only a few words). The hotel is clean and there is a little bar with a friendly bartender. The bar is not a destination, but a good place to meet friends before going out. The room is not large but more than adequate and was very comfortable and clean.
I checked out Sunday morning but wanted to spend the day exploring the town more so asked the front desk staff if I could leave my bags with them which they were happy to do. I returned around 18:00 and they cheerily returned my bags and ordered me a taxi. This is really great service for a traveler who wants to explore the town and an impressive courtesy.
There is a computer with internet access in the lobby available for free use. Wifi is available in the room for a surcharge but it is a more reasonable price than many hotels charge. The wifi worked well.
I was a little apprehensive about staying here as I didn't know the area and it seemed quite a distance from the city of Freiburg itself. However this was more than compensated for by the beauty of the environment, the lovely hotel, and the friendliness of the staff. The thermal baths can be reached directly from the hotel via an underground walkway. You receive a discount on the use of the baths, which are themselves very relaxing.
My only disappointment was that I could not get a booking for a massage at the hotel, in spite of staying there for three nights. It's advisable to book this in advance if you want one. Otherwise, a brilliant place which I would recommend to anyone.
Stayed here so we were able to get to Zurich on the train. The station is a short drive away. We also enjoyed a ride on the Schauinslandbahn. It was quite warm when we were there in September, but the pool was a good place to cool off. The staff was helpful and friendly.

I loved the Hotel but would never return to Freiburg because of the Graffiti and Trash EVERYWHERE in the city. The youth gather in the market square (right outside the hotel) smoking and drinking...the signs on the buses remind you to beware of pickpockets. The mayor of the town needs to get a handle on the YOUNG kids in Freiburg!
