“Almost perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

A great stay. Wonderful hotel. Wonderful service.

Only negative - I was in a low floor room just off the 'bridge' over the street between the hotel's buildings. Noise from the street (passers by talking, even echoes of high heels waking) was clearly audible in the room at night when trying to fall to sleep. Sound proofing is not excellent, even with shutters drawn. Probably wouldn't bother most people but I am a light sleeper and it did bother me for the first night.

All that said, I plan to stay there again!

Warm, friendly and very attentive staff. Beautiful public & private rooms. I love the bar ( same bar man for the last 15 years at least) . Pristine wood panelling...always a lovely atmosphere and live piano music at night. This is THE speical place to stay in Freiburg.

We stayed 6 nights in july 2012 and picked this hotel mainly because of the air conditioned rooms which are hard to find in Freiburg and of course its 5 star rating. We enjoyed our stay,the room was spotless and very well maintained during our stay, staff were very friendly. We ate in the restaurant the meal was good and the service was very good. The hotel has a very nice bar with friendly efficient staff. There is a lovely garden outside the bar where we often sat and had tea and coffee.
The coffee shop at the front of the hotel is lovely and always busy. Now for my little gripe!!
There was a bottle of water and a bowl of fruit in our room on arrival. This was removed when finished with the next morning and not replaced. We were not impressed!!!
We paid 250 euro room only every night of our stay therefore we expected the same facilities afforded to everyone staying one night.
The hotel is lovely but the little extras we have enjoyed in other hotels are left wanting here.

Stayed at this hotel on a one night stop over on our way to Heidelberg. Delightful surprise. I requested a bottle of champagne to be awaiting our arrival as it was my husband's birthday. The hotel sent up an entire cake and a note wishing him a Happy Birthday. The young woman at the front desk greeted us and helped us with our luggage. Everyone couldn't have been nicer. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and lovely in the large windowed and bright restaurant. A secret gem in this busy city.

Room Tip: Room was a bit small but absolutely fine - clean, comfortable.

On Saturday 12 January I went in with my wife and daughter to look at the hotel to see if we would eat there. We went into the bar for a drink only to discover that the bar was a 'smokers bar'. We asked if there was another bar and were told that we could have a drink in the lobby - just not good enough for a Leading Hotel of the Word, So we left and found another 'smoke free' restaurant.

Again just not good enough for a Leading Hotel of the Word

Dear Guest,

We are very sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your visit at the Colombi. In the entire Colombi Hotel, we have a smoke ban in the guestrooms and in the public area, with the exception of the piano bar. We decided to keep this smoking area on purpose. As a 5 star hotel superior, we aim to meet the requirements of both smokers and nonsmokers.

You would have had the possibility to take place in one of our smoke-free restaurants, to have a drink and enjoy your dinner.

We would like to point out that our guest satisfaction is always uppermost in our minds.
Our philosophy is based on hospitality and professionalism and we are keen to make our guests’ stay as comfortable as possible.

With kind regards

The hotel is very conveniently located right at the entrance of the Old Town (Altstadt) and near the shopping area of town The public spaces are decorated with taste and luxury, especially the restaurant hall. The rooms are spacious, quiet and with comfortable bed. We had flaffy pillows and feather duvet, the cleanliness was remarkable and every evening we found one small chocolate on our pillow. The toiletries were adequate and daily replenished. The breakfast had a great variety of tasty bread, ham and juices and the service was fast and qualitative. One night we ate at the hotel restaurant and the dishes were one better than the other! I give the chef congratulations! The reception staff were very polite and helpful. The hotel also features a lovely piano bar, an ideal place to take a drink. The venue was decorated with wood and the place had comfortable leather armchairs. The only objection was the incredible cigarette smoke that covered the entire area. I don't disagree with smoking allowed in the bar but hotel management should pay more attention to adequate and continuous ventilation of the area. The Hotel Colombi is one of the hotels that would like to visit again. It provides a high level hospitality.

My recent stay at the Hotel Colombi was amazing. The service was spectacular and the rooms were great. We stayed at the hotel over the holidays and the hotel put a tree in our room! It was going above and beyond. We were so pleased with the hotel. The rooms were nice and clean. The lobby was beautiful, and the food was great! This hotel was amazing!
