“A charming hotel in Freiburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

We recently stayed a night at the Barbara Garni while in Freiburg. The hotel oozes charm, offers friendly service, and a nice breakfast. It is convenient to the Old part of the city and an easy walk from the train station. We were in room 22 and had a beautiful terrace.

Room Tip: I recommend a room with a terrace.

Located a few minutes walk from the railway station in a quiet street, the family owned hotel is good value. Our room (26) was sunny, airy, and spacious by European standards.WiFi worked well on multiple devices. Breakfast mets our needs very well. We hope to revisit Freiburg and will stay again at Hotel Barbara.

I've stayed two days in this hotel, and it was by far one of the best experiences I've had in a hotel at this price range. Everything in the hotel shows careful thinking and attention to details - the building, the corridors, the fine furnitures in the room, the comfort of the bed, everything is with good taste and the feel is great. The breakfast has a nice selection (for a small hotel) of very fine ingredients. The hotel owner and manager are apparently women who take care to make it a very cosy and atmospheric hotel.

We spent 3 nights in this lovely hotel and it was difficult to find fault with anything. It is convenient to the station, no more than a few minutes, and close to the old part of the city of Freiburg. The rooms were comfortable, although not large, with a modern ensuite. There was an excellent range of bread, fruit, cold meats, nuts, jam and even a boiled egg available for breakfast. The staff were very helpful for us non German-speaking guests. We would highly recommend this very clean family run hotel.

Hotel Barbara Garni is a nice and cosy hotel, situated on a quiet street, very near to the Hauptbanhof of Freiburg and all main tourist attractions of this charming city. The old building has been renovated and transformed to a small 'boutique' hotel with careful touch to any detail. The management and the staff are very friendly and warmhearted, and beyond the intimate atmosphere the breakfast is outstanding

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!
