Approx 7 or 8 minutes walk from the train station with wheeled hand luggage, on cobbled footpaths & with a lot of roadworks, the hotel was easy to find, ideally located on Freising’s main street. It was a real wow moment after entering the hotel, seeing the spotlessly clean, spacious foyer with it’s classical old world style, the piano, the furniture & the art painted ceiling & that style was prevalent through out the hotel, in the corridors etc. Checking in was quick, friendly & informative with no fuss & I was given info on breakfast, WiFi, checking out etc. There was a lift but because of the location of my room on the first floor, it was much quicker for me to just use the stairs.
A big room with carpet floor, single bed, wall mounted tv, full length mirror, smoke alarm, large wardrobe, safe, tea, coffee, bottle of sparkling mineral water, table & work area, plenty of electrical sockets & aircon which cooled to 18 degrees. A large window gave plenty of natural light but I kept the electric exterior window shutter & curtains closed because of the heat from the strong sunshine that was blazing in to the room. I had no issues with noise from inside or outside of the hotel. WiFi which was password activated was excellent in all areas of the hotel, quick to connect to with fast speeds & very reliable, not dropping once during my stay. No iron in my room but room 222 was designated as the ironing room with an iron & board for free use by guests.
The bathroom was ok size wise, fresh & spotlessly clean with a tiled floor, half tiled walls, towels, shower cubicle, shower head & hose on a rail with an abundance of hot water & great water pressure, a large bottle of hair/bodywash in the shower & another at the basin, hairdryer, large mirror, shaving/make up mirror, electrical socket, ceiling vent & throwaway slippers,
Breakfast, served from 06:00 to 10:00, was outstanding. I reserved my time when checking in & ordered my breakfast from the menu, approx. 1 hour later. It was sit down, full table service from the very friendly waitress/server. On the menu – bread rolls, pretzels, croissants, breads, yoghurts, sliced smoked ham, salamis etc, pate, cheeses, scrambled, fried & boiled eggs, bacon, porridge, cereals, muesli, fruit salad, jams, Nutella, honey, seeds, coffees, teas, hot chocolate, orange juice, multivitamin juice drink & mineral water. There was also a vegan selection of hummus, coconut yoghurt, oat milk, almond butter, peanut butter, vegetable spread & jam.
I had a real moment of panic after breakfast when I started to pack my baggage in prep for checking out as, I could not find my bank card anywhere. I went down to reception to ask if anybody had found a bank card but after checking, the answer was no. I was advised to check at the nearby town hall lost & found office which I did but again, nothing. I rang the police & then retraced my steps from the previous night, the bar that I was in but only had 2 or 3 beers in, the bank where I had used the atm but all to no avail. I returned to the hotel totally stressed, agitated & dripping with sweat & asked if I could have some more time before checking out. There was no problem & I could take as long as I needed & I was given a complimentary large bottle of sparkling mineral water. The card turned up when I was unpacking at home, tucked into the wallet that held my sunglasses.
After checking out, I left my bag in the free, ticket secured left luggage room as I had several hours to kill before my flight home. All of the staff that I interacted with during my stay - reception & breakfast, were exceptional. The hotel is ideally located, surrounded by shops, restaurants, cafes & bars. All of the historical sights are within short walks including Weihenstephaner brewery & beer garden which claims to be the oldest still existing brewery in the world & is well worth a visit.

My husband and I stayed here for one night before our flight out of Munich. The location was perfect, only a ten minute train ride from the airport, and a short walk from the station to the hotel. The hotel is in a prime location, right in the middle of the cute town, with shops and restaurants all around. The hotel and the room were both very clean and cozy on the rainy day we were there. All of the staff we met were very friendly and nice, even suggesting some restaurants in the area to grab food for dinner since their restaurant doesn't offer dinner at this time (since the cook recently left).
The only negative was, we were hoping for a little more variety for breakfast. I understand that things are probably different because of Covid and with the cook gone, but there weren't a ton of choices and variety.
