Travellers' Choice
Lean luxury for business, as well as leisure guests. Privately run, individual, small & luxurious. Adjoining Freiburg’s old town, on foot only five minutes away from the main train station, and thanks to its location in a side street, The Alex Hotel in Freiburg is ideally situated for quiet nights. Since the new opening on May 29th, 2014 Alexander Beinert and his team will be your personal hosts, welcoming you to the hotel and Freiburg in the spacious lobby area. From there, the bar which invites to drinks, and the lounge with its cozy fireplace giving you space and time for yourself, are easy to reach. Small but mighty: all 39 non-smoking guestrooms are equipped for everybody to find what they are looking for; let it be a good night’s sleep, enough space to work or simply time for themselves. Indulge in the comfortable box spring beds with fine, elegant bed linen. Large windows, air-conditioning in all of our rooms, and a large working space are only some features to the The Alex guestrooms. Let your day in Freiburg start with a refreshing shower, as all bathrooms are equipped with a rain shower. We also offer 4 outside parking spaces as well as 5 parking spaces in the garage. Advanced reservations recommended. The garage is not suitable for very large cars. PS: we are happy to be a smoke-free hotel.

We loved our time at The Alex! Would definitely recommend it for any time you’re planning to spend in Freiburg. The location is very convenient, safe and quiet but just a few minutes’ walk from the city centre. The whole hotel felt extremely modern and clean and everyone working there was so friendly! We will definitely recommend it to family and friends coming to Freiburg. Thanks for an amazing stay! We hope to be back :)

Unfortunately I didn't write this review shortly after my stay so I've forgotten a few of the things I wanted to mention but I had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. This was my third visit to Freiburg to see a friend who lives there and I prefer to stay in a hotel to have my own space but find there isn't a great choice of hotels for me; having previously stayed at the Colombi which was nice but overpriced for what it delivered and the food was disappointing, and the novotel which was just terrible. I picked this hotel based on the reviews and nice decor and I was not disappointed. The hotel is about 10-15 minutes walking distance from the train/bus station and is in a fairly quiet remote area so I feel it would be nicer if it was a bit closer to this or the town centre. The room was reasonably sized for me but I was just 1 person. It was extremely clean which is very important to me and decorated in a nice modern way. I found it very easy to sleep and the reception staff were polite and helpful. Things which could have been improved in the room were having a luggage rack (I do not like to keep my suitcase on the floor or table as it's nice to have the table free), the temperature control in the room didn't work all that well, sound proofing could be better but I had no issues with other guests being loud or disturbed sleep, power sockets didn't all work well, and the bathroom ventilation. I may consider trying a different hotel closer to the station/town centre next time but if I can't find anything nice, this hotel was reasonably priced and I had a pleasant stay so I'd happily stay here again.

Nice, newly, clean hotel located close to the main streets within walking distance. Service minded staff and good breakfast. Rooms are small and beds are small. So is the parking options. The parking garage is for Mini's and there is basically no outdoor parking. Select a parking house

Dear Leerberg, Warm regards from The Alex Hotel and thank you for your review here on TripAdvisor. It is great to read that you enjoyed your stay at The Alex Hotel. Did you know, that we also have outside parking spaces. These are a great alternative, should you drive a lager car than a mini ;-).

My husband and I travel often and have had all kinds of hotel experiences. The Alex Hotel is the most unique and wonderful one we have ever stayed at. Our impression began before we even arrived through email exchanges about restaurants and activities. Alex and his staff were always quick to respond, very pleasant and gave helpful suggestions. On check in day, Alex called to see what time we would arrive and offered to make us a dinner reservation. When we finally showed up, Alex was at the desk to greet us with a smile, showed us where to park and even allowed us to store our bikes in the hotel. There were water and apples in the room for us and he made sure everything was to our liking. We shared with him that we wanted to taste the local wines and he offered to do a tasting for us there in the hotel with his favorites. When we returned with cheese and bread and the apples from the room, he cut them up and plated them for the tasting. We had a delightful conversation about his journey since taking over the hotel and remodeling it. The attention to details is impressive in both the room and the common areas. We liked the wines so much, Alex contacted the wineries and organized the shipments to our home. Above and beyond what I would have expected! All three restaurants Alex suggested (Primo, Wolfshöhle and Lollo) were very different from each other and delicious! On top of all of that, the hotel is perfectly located near the old town, but is still in a quiet location. I can't recommend this hotel enough!!
