It seems this hotel regularly google their guests prior to arrival. Unfortunately they mistook me for a more illustrious namesake - and gave me an upgrade. (I wonder why?) Neverthless I did complain to the (presumably) duty manager who said that they did it to ensure their guests 'would behave in an appropriate manner' and to identify ne'er-do-wells who, apparently,...

The Columbi Hotel in Freiburg is a gem! This hotel has all old world charm you would expect from a hotel nestled in the Black Forest combined with first-class customer service. The staff was fantastic, going the extra mile to make my family of 5 feel comfortable. The entire facility is kept spotless. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you... More

I stayed for 1 night and was kindly upgraded to a superior room. The entire decoration is very traditional. It is well looked after but needs some upgrading if not replacement in order to compete with a 4 star standard of the 21st century. My room was large enough though unsuitably equipped with furntiture of the 1970s wasting most of... More

A luxury hotel for Freiburg, and I have stayed there 3 times now. Very expensive for Freiburg, at twice the cost of any of the other hotels. I am not convinced it is worth it. The location is fantastic, only an 8 minute walk from the train station and adjacent to the old part of town, which is the highlight... More

I booked the Colombi as I found a great rate for the time I was visiting Freiburg in Oct 2014 (and also because I refused to ever stay at the Freiburg Novotel again!). The location is great, it's very near to the train station (less than a 5 minute walk) and right in the busy town centre. The hotel itself... More

This was booked for me and I was expecting just an average regional hotel. However the Colombi really is something unique and special. Very central location, Ideal for the business traveller and romantic weekender. Hotel restaurent is great, service is perfect. The room: bed was very comfortable, quiet and well equipped. I would definetley stay here again if in Freiburg.

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.
