I chose this hotel due to its proximity to the Freiburg Train station. It was very close to the inner city attractions. Hotel was clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I was pleased with how large the room and bathroom were. Hotel seemed new and was very nice. However, it was very noisy most nights outside of the hotel. Debris of broken bottles in the morning in and around the area. Very loud.
The hotel is just there at the main Freiburg train station. If you're taking a bus from or to Basel Airport in Switzerland it will take you literally 1 minute to walk from the lobby of the hotel to the bus station. It will also take you literally 1 to 3 minute to walk from the lobby of the hotel because you have to go underground for one of the directions. Overall I'll say it's clean and the staff are friendly.
The towels are very small and there's only one per guest. No shower cap for ladies and no shampoo or conditioner in the bathrooms. One pillow on a queen bed? One small bed sheet that's weird. Not sure if it's supposed to be a comforter. The hotel doesn't offer free breakfast. The free wi-fi is extremely slow (256 kbps). If you want high speed then you have to pay extra. I think that if you're going to pay that much money you should at least have a free continental breakfast. The hotel doesn't offer any.
My daughter and I had two nights in this lovely small hotel. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, the breakfast was delicious and the staff were delightful. It was very warm and the outdoor bar was perfect for a cool drink or two.

The elegant Designhotel am Stadtgarten is situated next to a verdant park, minutes from the town centre of Freiburg im …More
The location is on the outskirts of the city, seven tramstops from the middle. It is about as close as anybody can get with a car, as the city centre is pedestrianised and parking is a nightmare. We mistook the hotel for one with a similar name, and so thought we would be closer to the city. However, it is very competently run and would suit families and business guests.
"Nice hotel, 10 - 15 minute drive from the old city"
We chose this hotel mainly because all others were sold out. It had more amenities than we were looking for, which we didn't take advantage of, such as large outdoor swimming pools that required additional purchase to use. The hotel was nice and modern. Our room was clean and comfortable.
Close to Switzerland and France, Freiburg im Breisgau offers visitors cultural sights and natural beauties. In the heart of Freiburg, the Old Town Hall, Freiburg Minster, and the Historical Merchants Hall from 1532 reflect the medieval history of this place. Squares, like Augustinerplatz, provide an ideal backdrop for the dozens of celebrations, which take place every year in Freiburg's old town.
