The Alex Hotel is a unique little gem of a hotel in Freiburg. It was recommended by the host of our business meeting - and I'm very glad! The service attitude of all the staff was outstanding. The public areas were charming. And despite being small, family-owned (not a chain), and in an older building, it was completely up-to-date, with an elevator, power blinds, fast wifi, and *working* A/C. (This was an extremely important point for me during a heat wave.) The tiny bar had house wines (which I enjoyed). Overall, if you like to experience something unique and local, yet also in tune with the needs of the international business traveller, I *highly* recommend The Alex Hotel on your next visit to Freiburg.

The front desk staff was friendly and very helpful. We had a slight problem with Travelocity fees for our booking and they resolved it quickly and to our advantage even thought it wasn’t their fault!!

The Alex Hotel can offer the things you need during your travel located in the city centre, a parking area in close connection to the hotel, nice and clean rooms and a well balanced breakfast. - all of this to a resonable price:

The Alex Hotel offers a welcoming and comfortable base from which to explore Freiburg. Easy to reach from the Hauptbahnhof -- just turn left out of the station's main entrance, walk two blocks and its up on your right on Rheinstrasse. Yes the rooms are smallish, but tastefully furnished and with a decent sized bathroom and a comfortable bed. There's a wine bar downstairs with an outdoor terrace -- just the place to relax after travelling. The staff are friendly and helpful. I didn't sample the breakfast but other guests mentioned their enjoyment. It's location puts it within easy walking distance of Freiburg's centre. All in all I would definitely revisit the Alex Hotel. And the rain shower is a really nice touch.

Hotel is in a great location. Rooms are nice and well appointed. The staff are excellent and make you feel at home. Victoria on reception and bar was great. Breakfast was fresh with a large number of choices. Highly recommend this hotel.

Truly helpful staff who went out of their way to help me get rid of a nasty cold by way of their amazing selection of freshly brewed teas which were available 24/7. Thoughtful details like apples instead if cookies in the room. I liked the ambiance which despite its minimalism had an uplifting flair. In short - a truly enjoyable stay from which I emerged greatly restored. Don’t hesitate to book this one!

We visited Freiburg recently for the first time and stayed at the Alex Hotel. What a delight dealing with professional staff who really care about making your stay the best ever. We met Alex the owner who told us about the hotel and it's marvellous history - he really loves what he does and it shows. We will be back!

We had a fabulous 4 night stay at The Alex Hotel. As other reviewers have said, it is well located away from the pedestrian and traffic zone but only a 10 minute pleasant walk into town. The rooms were very nice as was the bathroom. Breakfast was enjoyable and egg dishes were cooked to order. There was plenty of bread, cheeses cold meats and fruit on the buffet. We were pleasantly surprised the morning of my husband's birthday when Alex, the owner/manager, brought us both a lovely glass of champagne to celebrate. We couldn't have been more pleased with a hotel. It was modern, very clean, well managed and a great location for visiting Freiburg and the local area. Alex also speaks fluent English which is wonderful for English speaking guests, We parked our car in one of the spaces behind the hotel but be sure to reserve a space in advance.

This was a very nice, modern hotel. Staff at front desk were welcoming and the rooms were very nice and clean. The hotel is located away from main traffic about a 10 min walk to the Altstadt. Parking was conveniently located outside of the hotel and a 24 hr parking pass costs 9 euros. The hotel also has underground parking for smaller cars. The room we had was not very big but queen bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was very modern. Would definitely recommend staying here again.

Stayed at The Alex Hotel in Freiburg for 3 nights and it is simply one of the best boutique hotels I’ve ever stayed in. Great location just 10 minutes walk from the centre of town. High quality appointments, really great attention to detail and service of the very highest standard - including from the manager / owner Alex himself. I simply can’t recommend The Alex Hotel highly enough.
