Again we returned to our special place in The Schwarzwald. The Weinfest is in full swing, and the daily temperature is exceeding mid-90s every day. BUT- we have our Colombi Hotel "home" to provide a beautiful air conditioned room, the usual excellent food services- especially an incomparable Frühstück and World renowned restaurant, swimming pool and spa- all making our trip...

This is a lovely hotel. From the moment we arrived in reception and were greeted with a smile and a welcome by Selene behind reception we knew we would enjoy staying at the hotel. Indeed this was the experience from all staff we encountered throughout our 4 day stay. We booked through LHW and were upgraded to an apartment suite,... More

Booked a room via phone, and got a nice and fair offer. Was greeted personaly and got a nice and very clean room. The check in staff gave me a great restaurant recommendation and took care about my hybrid car (got an electric plug). Nice and friendly bar service. I had no breakfast because of time and 21 € was... More

From the outside the hotel disappoints a little on arrival but once inside there is a feeling that you have come to the right place. Like many Leading Hotels of the World the hotel is decorated in classic hotel style, which perhaps needs to be more individual in places. For example get rid of the doilies and some of the... More

We spent three nights in the Colombi hotel on our first visit to the Black Forest and this hotel certainly helped make the whole experience very memorable. First of all, the rooms are beautifully appointed, spacious and very comfortable. The decor throughout the hotel is very warm and welcoming and the whole hotel oozes class. As I don't want to...

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
