Very attractive and clean hotel with a traditional feel. Great location being a short walk from the Hauptbahnhof and the centre of Freiburg. Breakfast had a good choice with plenty of cold meats and was in a nice room. Staff were friendly. A great choice and would stay here again.

Easy to find, approx 3 minutes walk from the train station. Visually, very attractive on the outside & very old style on the inside, almost a throw back to hotels of years gone by. A very, very friendly & informative check in (I was not asked to pre authorise my credit card or pay immediately) & with no lift, it... More

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel. It's a perfectly located, cozy, hotel (a little bit old fashioned, we loved it), small rooms, but an excellent bed, a perfect shower in the bathroom, ..... The owners and the staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is OK.... Maybe one negative point: there's no airco, and with 34 degrees... More

Traditional German, family owned hotel. There is no lift and our room was on the top floor (63 steps up) but there were photos, paintings, old cupboards, etc. on the landings to stop and look at while catching our breath. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The staff were very friendly, helpful and spoke English and were very... More

This is a very nice small hotel, with historic character and a friendly, personalized atmosphere. The location was great, the breakfast was good, and the room was lovely. We had a room with a balcony, and we LOVED it. The only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars overall is that the mattresses were kind of hard.

Stayed at the Hotel Barbara for three nights. A lovely looking traditional German hotel on a quiet street but near everything. Upon arrival you were made to feel welcome with water offered to refresh you. Found the owners really friendly and nothing was too much bother as we asked for more cushions and these were quickly delivered to our room.... More

Recently stayed one Friday night in this lovely family owned hotel, located about 5 minutes from the train station and another 10 minutes from the Munsterplatz – on a quiet street. Room was tiny (#22) but had a good-size balcony overlooking the street. Despite its square footage, the room was fully equipped with side tables, large bed, desk, mini-fridge, closet,... More

We booked a room for two nights, at inctedibly short notice and got a fair price despite that. The hotel is located about 5mins from the main rail station, is impeccably clean and very comfortable. The breakfast - built into that reasonable price - was everything you'd hope from a continental breakfast and set us up for the day.

The room and hotel was spacious and decorated in a traditional German style. The breakfast was simple continental but perfect set up for the day. Location was great for exploring town and getting train out to visit surrounding areas. Trip to Titisee is recommended and cuckoo clock shopping very fun.
