What a great discovery. This clean, friendly and quiet hotel is a short walk from the train station (two blocks) and from the city center (three blocks). Our double room had a good, firm bed, modern bathroom and lots of windows. The walk out balcony looks over a courtyard with lots of greenery and birds. The building is historic, but all appointments are modern and functional: lots of hot water, good towels, good linens. The breakfast was very good, with lots of variety in meats, cheeses and marmalades, and a hot egg. Friendly staff that obviously likes running a hotel. No elevator, but if you don't mind stairs, I think this is a great place to stay in beautiful Freiburg. We would certainly stay here again!

Very good location between the main station and the old town in a quiet street. Rooms were very comfortable and some are plenty big enough for four people - making a stay here very economical if this is a possible option. Excellent breakfast and very obliging service. Free internet is also available in the rooms - not always the case at this price level. Definitely worth considering for a long weekend.

We loved this quaint little hotel in the middle of downtown Freiburg. It is situated in a quiet little street within easy walking distance of the downtown pedestrian zone. The rooms are nicely decorated (ours was newly renovated), very clean and the service was excellent. Breakfast had lots of variety and was well presented. There was a lovely little courtyard outback where you could eat as well. Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Freiburg!

This was our first time in the wonderful city of Freiburg and we can only hope to return soon.
The Hotel Barbara was great. We were pleasently surprised on how big our room was with very comfy beds. Also loved the shower and how clean our room was kept. Breakfast each morning was very relaxing and loved that we were offered boiled eggs along with all the other typical german breads, cheese,yogurt, cereal, fruit, etc. and great coffee. It was especially nice when we needed laundry done it was returned on the same day.

I've been here in mid June for a weekend and the hotel has an eccellent breakfast and it's located just a few walk away from the historical centre of the town. The hotel staff was friendly and helpfull.

inesdold, Manager at Hotel Barbara Garni, responded to this review, July 5, 2010
This rating is not acceptable. We are a city hotel in a small side street. In a few steps are the guests in the old town, theater and other interesting places in the city Freiburg. It may be that residents or visitors to park on the street. This is usual in a city hotel and does not make much noise, but the guest is right in town. Our rooms have a comfortable standard of a 3 star hotel and therefore the corresponding room size. Our rates are often lower than in comparable hotels and not too expensive, it is easy to check. The location is absolutely top and this is important during the rating. Regarding cleanliness, breakfast and service, we usually get top marks. This can be found in many ratings on other platforms. Our employees care much about the guests. We had guests from these suspicions, feel that it is not good, and asked about whether we can do something for them (in good English). The younger woman spoke not a word, and the older woman said: "It's all right, my daughter is a little difficult. It has also not asked for an alternative room. We would have these guests stay made more pleasant, but we did not know their problem.
