This hotel is very close to the train station in one direction, and the old town in the other. There is no lift, but the staff lugs the bags up to the room, so no big deal for us. The breakfast is very good, including little chocolates to tide you over until kaffee und kuchen. Really liked this place.

Even though it's marked with 3 stars I think the place deserves 4. Conveniently located only 3 minutes walk from the old town. Has a nice small garden in the back. The only drawback is the place has no elevator. Parking is off-site in the garage and cost you 15 euros a day. Breakfast is typical German abundance.

Visited Hotel Barbara for 3 days in August 2014. Chose the hotel based on internet-reviews on three different sites. Location was excellent for us, only 5 minutes/roughly 250 m from main railway station, less than 10 minutes to the Old Town. Room was of decent size and also very clean. Showerroom also in good condition. The hotel gave us a... More

This is a great place to stay in Freiburg. The building is really cute on the outside. The location is wonderful, just a 5 minute walk from the train station a 10 minute walk from the cute city center. There is a very yummy breakfast available each morning. The staff was very nice and helpful! My only criticism would be... More

We loved our stay here. Charming hotel and the staff was so welcoming and helpful. We wanted to celebrate a birthday dinner but it was a national holiday and most of the special restaurants were closed. The hotel owner called around for us, found a great restaurant open and got us reservations. We arrived early so left our luggage and... More

The woman with whom I spoke on the telephone while reserving our room was very agreeable and efficient and took into account all my "specific" requests. From our Monday afternoon arrival, when the kind receptionist carried our luggage up the few stairs to the "main" floor until our departure four days later - when he poured us a drink of... More

Seemed to live up to tripadvisor ratings , very friendly and helpful staff, recommended a good restaurant , and had a nice German breakfast for fair price. We went to Freiburg because it was said to be different and found a lovely walk up the hill, and through the old town, very pleasant. The hotel had everything we wanted, great... More

We stayed at the Hotel Barbara in Freiburg in September 2013 and highly recommend it. Our room was pleasant and comfortable. The hotel staff were courteous and helpful. The breakfasts were great. The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of town, yet its side-street location offers tranquility and quiet. My traveling companion needs to use a wheelchair for everything... More

Room luxurious with fine furniture. Spacious bathroom and room. Discounted parking in the indoor garage down the street. The hotel gives you a ticket that you use to get in/out of the garage. The hotel bills you for the ticket when you leave. Great breakfast. Lovely German sausages. Charming breakfast venue. I recommend the pizza and caprese at Casanova down... More

We picked Hotel Barbara almost by chance, deciding on short notice to spend a night in Freiburg, while travelling further north. Looking around in the area, which sports several hotels, Hotel Barbara somehow caught our eye and we decided to try this first. The place has a a palpable history, being in the family for several generations. There are some... More
