Above & Beyond
When I learned my flight was delayed, I called to let the hotel know I'd be late. I was told it would be no problem and that I should call when I arrived. After multiple flight issues, I didn't arrive at the hotel until almost 2 A.M., but was welcomed with a smile and made to feel like a valued customer. I learned the building where the hotel is had previously been a jail and even stayed in the former clinic. The breakfast the next morning was excellent, but the reason I'll return the next time I'm in the area is because of the customer service focus. I'd highly recommend Hotel Fronfeste!

Gerne Lebenslänglich
Hervorragend. Knast mit Liebe zum Detail. Wir waren im Hochsicherheitstrakt. Das Zimmer hat seinen Namen zurecht. Tolles Erlebnis. Auch für Familien geeignet. Sehr gutes Frühstück für neun Euro. Top Servicepersonal ob an der Rezeption oder im Frühstücksraum. Alle sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Parkmöglichkeit direkt hinter dem Haus in der Parkgarage möglich. Kosten 1,50 pro NACHT !!! Perfekte Lage in der Altstadt. Fußläufig viele Gaststätten zu erreichen.
