We stayed as part of a celebratory holiday in France and southern Germany with the Colombi as the focus for a special birthday. We were not disappointed - the welcome, ambience, facilities and service were all excellent. We speak German anyway but the staff, as would be expected of a top hotel, are used to attending to multi-national clients. Our... More

The hotel is located not far from the main train station. It is a classic hotel, and the same applies for the service. From other reviews, people found staff friendly. Well, probably they could be friendly to those they like, among their own groups.

This is a nice hotel but not something to go out of your way for, at least for the price. I only stayed one night on a business trip, its in am area next to the local university so probably much better for visiting students. Not all that great for business travelers. If you want a traditional German hotel where... More

Now stayed here several times during business trips and love the character and old world charm. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Breakfast room is superb. Free wifi is a plus with decent speed. Centrally located in Freiburg, so easy access to all town centre, restuarants and parks etc. Driving to the hotel can be difficult without satnav due to...

First of all, it's hard to see when you book just how huge this hotel is. We asked for an interconnecting room (when we booked) for the children and we got one. Check in was easy and the staff friendly. We were put on the 3th floor which has views towards the forest. New rooms, spacious bathrooms . Good rooms... More

We recently stayed at the Colombi, as we have for many, many years. The hotel provides very high quality and professionalism. We were especially excited about our most recent stay as we were able to include our children and grandchildren in the experience. From the pool to the wonderful food, everything was well done. The rooms were immaculate- and freshened... More

We are traveling for both business and pleasure and booked this gem on booking.com. We were greeted at the door with a tour of the establishment and a complementary upgrade. Wifi, free breakfast, down comforters and awaiting bowl of cherries delighted us!. . Our pictures say it all. Hurry to stay here!

Based on the photos and the description you will imagine a palace, but do not get your expectations high. 1) Staff are good and really friendly but there are not much of them. 2) Rooms are good, but there is something awkward about the orientation and a big room becomes tight. 3) Breakfast was disappointing in terms of the staff...

It is not often I use superlatives when describing a hotel experience - but in the case of the Colombi Freiburg I will make an exception - it is one of the most perfect hotel experiences I have ever experienced.

Over the top customer service, it seemed they expected me as I walked in. They gave a tour of the hotel and the lobby looks like the luxurious Titanic Ship Lobby! The rooms are spacious, and everything was top notch. To top it all, every thing was walking distance - the stone covered streets of Freiburg, cafe's, restaurants. They had... More
