About this listing
In my 3-room apartment with two bedrooms, shower, bath, very quiet location on the 2nd floor with a balcony to the rear, with 3 minute walk to the train station I rent a room with a double-sized bed (2 persons). There's also room for a third person in a guest bed, and eventually more persons on the floor. There is aas well a small couch, on which a smaller child can lie (website hidden), WiFi, heating, bright at day and quiet at night, without street lights. You can easily go to the university and inner city, the dreisam river, public transport, bars and restaurants around etc.. The building and appartment is very new and modern.
It's not of an issue if you are arriving late in the night.
Other Things to Note
Check-out is until 10.30 a.m. because of the cleaning that has to be done.
Please behave quite in the house outside the appartment to not disturb the neighbours.
I stayed here with my wife and 2 children for 5 days because Freiburg is well connected with DB and our tourist destinations like Europa Park, Titisee and Schauinslandbahn cable car are easier to reach from Freiburg main station.
On the day of arrival, the owner came to receive us on the road. But instead of taking us easily through the main entrance, he took us through dark and long underground parking tunnel which is accessed from the back side of huge apartment complex. This scared us too much and I am still wondering why he has done so.
The apartment plan is strange and cramped. The house has lot of unnecessary old furniture items which does not allow you to walk or move freely . Once you open the main door, you land up in a narrow corridor which has small kitchen setup, dining table and a bed of the owner. The bedroom size is too small for more than 2 guests and has lot of unnecessary old furniture items inside, that makes movement impossible.
The man can not speak English but is friendly and I would say good human being. The lady in the house does not seem to like guests. She was never friendly with us. Whole time during our stay whenever we were in house, she used to fight with her man loudly and the atmosphere in the house was stressful. I also heard she asking her man loudly in German– when are we getting rid of these guests.
At odd hours in the midnight, suddenly the owners start speaking and move in and out of house. This frightened us as well.
The house badly stinks due old carpets, poor ventilation, poor maintenance and leftover food dumped in basket for many days. The hygiene level is very poor.
I would strongly suggest not to stay here when especially with your family. Although the location is close to main station and rates are much cheaper than big hotels around, you shall regret when you return back from the fantastic day out. Although the rates are cheaper than big hotels around, there is no value for the good money you pay.
Der Hausmeister ist sehr freundlich und hilfreich. Wir fühlten uns bei ihm wie zu Hause. Die Wohnung ist in der Nähe von Hauptbahnhof und leicht zu finden. Eine schöne Erfahrung!
I booked Philipp's room for my parents and grandmother, who were visiting me in Freiburg. I came with them to the check-in, in order to translate, as they do not speak German. Philipp is very understanding of the language barrier, and was extremely helpful during the check-in process. My family found him to be a very courteous host. There was a small issue with the check-in. My family's flight arrived an hour late and then traffic kept us from arriving at the previously mentioned time. I sent a message explaining the delay, but got no response. I then attempted to call, but his phone was off. However, everything worked out when we went to the apartment and rang his room. We would recommend Philipp's room to anyone, as he is a great host and it is located in a very central location.
Philipp a été très agréable et répondait très rapidement. Nous sommes arrivés assez tard (23h30) mais nous a fait vite comprendre que ça ne le dérangeait pas. Les lits et la chambre étaient très confortables, même pour trois personnes. Les draps et les serviettes de bain sentaient bon la lessive. L'appartement est idéalement situé comme décrit par Philipp : à quelques mètres de la gare et à deux pas du centre-ville. Nous n'avons pas eu trop de mal à trouver de quoi nous garer malgré les nombreux travaux dans les alentours.
The place was close to train station and that was an advantage. The locality was also good. Although I would say the room was really small and not enough place for 3. Also the apartment is not spacious. Wouldn't recommend it for more than a day but could be enough if you just want to spend the night. Also for such a room I would say it is quite pricy. Also Phillip doesn't speak much english so difficult to communicate, our check in was also not very smooth. In total, not bad !
Sehr ruhige Übernachtungsmöglichkeit im Herzen der Stadt.
Unschlagbar nah am Bahnhof, wirklich kurze Wege zu den Instituten der Uni, Konzertorten, Cafés usw. usf. Wohnung 1a sauber, für die Frühstücksoption wars es einfach zu heiß, der Kühlschrank mit vernünftigen fleischlosen Sachen gut gefüllt. Die Ruhe nach der Arbeit war ungestört, ein angenehmer Aufenthalt in einer tollen Stadt!
Es hat uns bei Philipp sehr gefallen. Er hat sich sehr nett um unser Wohl gekümmert: die Kühlung des Zimmers organisiert ( es war 38 grad), uns Wasser angeboten, Informationen über Freiburg mit gegeben, uns zum Bahnhof begleitet,...... Das Zimmer war schön und grossräumig wie beschrieben mit toller Sicht und Sitzmöglichkeit auf einen sehr grossen grünen Innenhof. Er wohnt sehr zentral in einem interessanten Viertel mit individuellen Beizen, Läden, Kaffeebars und in Fussnähe zur Innenstadt.
