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. If you want a traditional German hotel where... More

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 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!
