A fabulous hotel that compares with the best in the world in terms of service.
Hotel is a 5-minute cab ride from the train station and is centrally located. The lobby is functional but unpretentious. Check-in is quick and the front desk person takes you to your room and explains the various features. Had a junior suite that provided ample room -- looks like the website pictures only better.
Room (in the newer building) includes VERY large (nearly walk-in) closet with safe, sofa, two chairs, desk, large TV and a mini-bar. There is nightly turndown service. My room faced the street but there was no noise. The rooms have dark curtains and electronically controlled blinds. It was a bit hard to get the room cool even after turning down the thermostat but opening the window for a short period resolved the issue. The bath was decent-sized (especially for Europe) with double sink and a large tub. Molton Brown bath products are a nice touch.
Hotel is right in the heart of town and, during Christmas season, a 2-minute walk to the Christmas markets. The hotel is close to many restaurants and shops so it's easy to dine out as well as find anything you may want to buy.
Service was terrific and personal. It's clear that the hotel staff wants to make your stay pleasant and they definitely do that and more. I had a minor maintenance issue on day 1, which was quickly and successfully addressed in the hour that I was walking around town.
There is a nice morning breakfast buffet that includes champagne (although I never saw anyone drink it) but, for 20 Euros, it is a bit pricey for what you get. That said, I must admit that the soft-boiled eggs are cooked to perfection and service is incredibly efficient. If you want something lighter, there is a pastry/coffee restaurant in the hotel or you can walk less than 5 minutes for many other options. The dinner restaurant is a Michelin 1-star with prices to match. Menu looked great but you can eat VERY well in town for much less money.
Freiburg is a wonderful city and the Colombi matches it for personality and excellence. Stay here -- you won't be disappointed.
