Although you need to get precise directions as it is quite hard to find, when you get there it has a pleasant restaurant and a very rural setting overlooking a corn field. We stayed in a "Comfort Double room" we thought that it was worthwhile to pay a few extra Euros, so we can't comment on the lower grade rooms, but ours was good. The usual difficulty with hard beds, but that is expected in central and eastern Europe. No aircon., too, so it could be a problem in high summer.

First class at reasonable rate. Dining room excellent, food great, service the best in our 6 week trip. Breakfast more than generous.
Very helpful and courteous staff. Extremely generous size of room, with the added bonus of a large balcony. Although we were on a leisure trip this hotel's facilities were very good for corporate hospitality/seminars etc.
The staff was extremly helpful and polite at all times. The rooms are very big and nicely decorated. It is a very peaceful hotel and the beds were very comfy :). Breakfast buffet is excellent. The room was clean and the staff was ever so helpful nothing was too much to ask. The location is great too, we didn't spend too much time in the hotel during the day but everything was so quiet. We had a brilliant time and would definitely recommend it to all our friends.
It was clean and comfortable, ok for one night stay. Hard to find and had almost no English service, or choice of English tv programming. Not much to do in that area.
Location is good, facilities are clean and modern, restaurant and the food served there is good. When we arrived back to hotel in the evening, the parking lot outside was full. Maybe a little bit too small.
big room.breakfast. no safety-deposit box. no elevator .wireless internet was very expensive.
Good hotel, quiet, nice surrounding, only 15 min from highway
it was quiet and very nice to leave the balcony window open at night to sleep in the country side not enought local directions. Thank God for my GPS system
We stayed here because we were going to Europa Park and we booked late and this was the best deal at the last minute. This hotel is 30 minutes away from the park if there is no traffic on the autobahn, but we did enjoy it and breakfast was good. Plus it was very nice. They only speak a little English, but are very friendly and clean.
Very nice room. Reception understaffed.
the rooms are enormous; the restaurant is quite good; excellent breakfast; nice garden; plenty of parking space mosquitoes
I like to stay at this hotel when I come to visit friends. It is convenient for transport links and is only a short walk to the city centre. It is comfortable and the staff have always been helpful and pleasant.
location is excellent ovar all is good hotell
location is great Hotel Staff + service are not good
room size & facilities Breakfast buffet excellent only 1 small pillow provided on beds swimming pool not very warm
reception very good. big room. clean and good location
good breakfast buffet, very nice staff, very helpful with answering of questions, location is great to get to a lot of areas in town.
located near train station hotel is located in a neighbourhood where too many drunks hangout during night. hotel management would if possible take necessary action to least avoid having drunks / junkies in vicinity of hotel (500 sq.m around hotel). Hotel room interior is good but not well maintained, the room we stayed had a missing lamp shade, water was leaking from shower outlet. The swipe cards we received for room didn't work on first attempt, corridors do not have intercom, hence I had to leave luggage at door of room & go all the way to reception to have the swipe cards fixed.
good price, good place to visit the city between business trip price for WLan too expensive. Nowadays, it should be free in such hotels category
Convient to town center and transportation The bed pillow was poor.
rooms are clean , fresh and large in size the unavialablity of airconditioning..and it was little hot..hotel staff did supply us with fans ..that was nice from thier side
Very good value for money. Excellent breakfast and dinner.
This was a really well-designed modern hotel -- spacious, comfortable, smart without being suffocating. Great outside bar-lounge under shelter. And it's an easy short walk (5 mins) to the Muensterplatz and its daily morning market (which is fantastic) and the heart of this lovely, lovely small city. The hotel parking was a problem. Despite having reserved a place, the gates were stuck, and there was a palava. In the end, we parked on the street in front of the hotel which is cheaper (8€ per day) and perfectly safe.
The hotel is very new (we stayed at august 2009). Restrooms very clean and new and the room was very modern-design. Breakfast a little expensive (12.5€/each) but quite good. Very near the city center (5 min. walking). To park in the surroundings at the street you have to pay from 9 to 19: 0.40€/15min with a maximum of 8 euros/day.
Very quiet, yet near to the centre of Freiburg Just a small niggle- I never know why hotels of of this kind cannot supply bigger bath towels. we stayed at a b&b in France on the way back and they had lovely big towesl. Obviously it costs more to wash bigger towels but I do think it is stingy.
Mooi klein hotel, vlak bij het centrum, comfortabele kamers
Close to the city center, friendly staff and a nice atmosphere at the hotel and the bar/ breakfast room. Sure, you have to pay 12.50 euro per person for breakfast, but it was the best breakfast buffet we had seen in long time.
Very attentive staff
room, hotel staff
The location was very nice, and the decoration was interesting. The spaghetti dish was very bad. The spaghetti must have been cooked from days before.
It was very close to the town centre Matresses were strange foam and a bit uncomfortable, overall a bit pricey
location is very convenient for town centre. Rooms were comfortable and clean and the breakfast was vry good. The staff were very courteous and helpful. no lounge and very limited publc seating area
near station , nice welcome , small but adequate room , close to old town for restaurants etc
Friendly helpful staff, excellent room, good breakfast and very secure parking.
Very clean, modern, centrally located If you had a room that faced the street, there was street traffic since the hotel is so centrally located.
Staff wonderful...location super, we took a corner room which was had a fantastic, view. Everything was just swell
Central, easy access by car, plus secure parking......very friendly, bood breakfast, nice personal gifts. Front rooms suffer from external noise, and even rooms facing Park. fpr extra charge can also be noisey.
Friendly staff and good facilities in the room. Curtains were too light and did not keep out early morning sunlight.
Fantastic location ,great breakfast,clean rooms ,friendly staff ,would stay again in a heart beat ,,beautiful town Nothing bad to say
It's a lovely hotel and we enjoyed our stay. I can confirm the remarks on the noise of the front rooms and the cushons.
I loved everything...the service, room, facilities. I will always stay in the Columbi Hotel when in Freiburg. Just wished they had more locations. The pillows were too soft.
Staff & location are the best
Everything was perfect: courteous, helpful staff with just the right attitude, gorgeous clean pool, delicious breakfast and dinner. Loved every minute. Never mind the cost...just do it!
Wonderfully traditional 5-star (though in a 50 year old building), and you can feel the sense of pride in its history and role in the community (definitely a "tradition" for a certain age, here). Staff is professional and well-trained, and very friendly, not stuffy. My room was very large, and nicely appointed. The bar is fun -- very old school, with a wonderful, classic bartender, fireplace, cheesy 70's slow tunes (but a very talented pianist, as well). Perfect location...simple enough to reach by car, but right on the edge of the pedestrian city center, with shops right outside the door. No internet access at all in rooms. This was a big surprise. Free wi-fi only in the lobby area. Business center has one computer with printer. No fax or copier, though the front desk staff was happy to help. Mediocre bath/shower combo. I was in the "Residenz" annex, which means entering the front lobby, ascending one floor, walking down a long corridor, and ascending again. Not terribly convenient, and could be made much easier with independent external access. Finally, couldn't cool the room down (AC seems to have been shut off for the winter).
We ahd horrible rooms on arrival since you booking.com have taken the old rooms that have not been renovated and you should not be allowed to dupe customers in this way. The hotel was nice enough to change the rooms
One of the best hotels we stayed in. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. The restaurant is expensive, but here are plenty of choices around.
All of the staff made us feel extremely welcome, and nothing was too much trouble for them. The entrance lobby and restaurants are extremely elegant.
Quiet & comfortable
Swimming pools Slow service small portions in lagre plates in the restaurant
Almost all, The first day dinner, we had to wait more than an hour to eat.
Nice hotel with good facilities, including swimming area, sauna, etc. Small room at top floor, did not completely meet expectations. No airconditioning.
This was our 3rd visit to Dorint Freiburg and always a pleasure to go back, as this is very central to Black Forest, Switzerland and Alsace wine region as well. Breakfast is always fresh and well prepared but menu has not changed during the last 3 years!
Very comfortable,good service, sky sports in the room, the spa next door was excellent tea and coffee facilities in the room would have been nice
Everything No airconditioner
I like the stuff the servises the facilities for rest the nature around The information was only in german we wanted to have information in englich
Wonderful hotel, we had a lovely meal and a nice breakfast. The thermal baths were great (although they are undergoing renovation at the moment). We especially liked the special touches for children (small gown and slipper, teddy bear on the bed). The room was a little bit small. And the children's menu was in German.
Just 8 kms from Freiburg,the hotel is ideally situated for exploring and enjoying the countryside and the local city.It has a "get away from it all" feel, with comfortable, well equipped rooms, bar, restaurant and spa/pool facilities. Staff were very helpful with directions. Parking plentiful and at no additional cost.After a good night out in Freiburg,coffee and brandy back at the hotel, listening outside to foxes and night birds calling, it was very relaxing and enjoyable. Breakfast was at extra cost at 15 Euros per person. No handy alternative, other than to drive into Freiburg. Shame it wasnt included in the deal.
Room was a good size. It's a long way from the station - good 25 minute walk.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very rich and good. The room was a bit old. The holtel is facing a building site.
kind staff; rooms are very comfortable, the hotel is quiet and very nice. the bus stop for the city center is just in fron of the hotel
Room was clean. No shampoo and soap with small area for keeping things in the bathroom, the nearness of the car-repair workshop, difficult shutting the blinds (behind the TV, so you have to move the chair every time)
Rooms were very spacious, good breakfast and friendly staff
Fresh rooms and good service. Nice people at reception. Hotel is four star but lacks air-conditioning, hairschampoo, hair conditioner and movie channel on TV.
How friendly and helpful the staff were. The location does not allow much walking into Freiburg itself. The town centre is about 3Km away and without knowing the town I would not wan tto drive in.
Friendly staff - very cooperative No pool or hot tub.
it was near of center and some of parks and man places. the ac was not
The room was clean with all the required anmeties. Staff were helpfull and professional. You have to pay 8 Euros for parking, even though it is in the hotel Carpark
modern and clean
Every Thing........WOW This is the perfect hotel Nothing
Great desk staff were very helpful. Didn't have tea and coffee facilities.
Staff was really nice. My request had been taken into account (quiet room). Room confortable Breakfast was really expensive (15 euros); I am not sure but I think TV was not free also.
Helpful hotel staffs. Whenever I asked some questions to him, he always tried to answer and response. When I asked a recommendable restraunt for dinner, he suggested me 3 restraunts and one of them I chose was excellent!
The hotel is very pleasant and clean
Very good location. Although has no private parking, has a direct lift to the Hotel and also special price. Variable breakfast also for a vegan.
Great location in centre of town, just down street from the Munster. Car parking beneath (extra). Expensive i'net. Room a bit cramped for 3 adults in a triple.
Hotel's location was convenient. It was within walking distance to all the shops. Parking was ample. And the breakfast buffet was excellent.
centrale ligging, goede parkeer mogelijkheid internet 9 euro per dag
It is much better inside than it looks from the outside. The rooms were spacious and, despite the proximity to the railway line, the soundproofing worked well. The staff were very helpful and accommodating, especially for us who speak English and a bit of German. External appearance during the late afternoon in Autumn wasn't very attractive.
We liked the art and paintings of the hotel.
Staff were really friendly and location by the church was perfect. Room was also very comforable and loved the huge bed.
The location of the hotel, the helpful staff, and the very comfortable rooms. Difficulty getting to the hotel which is in the pedestrian zone. Even with GPS and hotel's instructions as to how to get to the hotel, it was not easy to find. In the older parts of cities with pedestrian zones, the streets can be very confusing. However, that would not prevent me from either recommending the hotel or in staying there again. Just a cautionary note.
The old world ambience and location, and the friendly attitude of the staff were my favorite points. I was very disappointed with the poor functioning of the internet connection from my room.
The breakfast and the dinner were excellent. The staff was very pleasant and helpful, the room in the corner was clean. There is the garage, but it’s better to reserve it in advance Describe in booking.com how to reach the hotel by car, when there is the market in the square. Was very difficult.
Great location by the old church plaza. There can be some city noise at night.
Staff were extremely helpful, especially in walking with me to my car and guiding me to the hotel, as it is very difficult to reach by car, especially when the Munsterplatz is full of market stalls and shoppers. The room (#53) was large and overlooked the Munsterplatz.
The ole fashin styled furnitures, breakfast and the environment of the hotel . The reception of the hotel was the different place from rooms.
the beakfast was excelent not accessible by car and distant from the parking place
hotel staff and the help for everything that we received
location is perfect, on the Catedral square; the building is charming; food is very good; personnel very kind; room was excellent for 2 adults and 2 children.
Very clean hotel, with nice bright decor. As a stop over, or base from which to explore the region, good. Convenient, free parking under the hotel. Free WiFi. Too far from the city center to walk. A tram runs every 15 minutes, but the stop is still a 500 m walk from the hotel (on a safe, suburban street). All told 20-30 minutes to get into town or back.
Wellness, car parking, bathroom, breakfast.
clean nice room. nice area.
The hotel is only 3 years old and all facilities are new and everything functions as expected. Underground secure parking was excellent as well. The attached restaurants were of a high standard with extensive wine list. The wireless internet connection was week in my room, management need to install another access point for stronger signal.
Friendly staff, great breakfast, nice rooms! WiFi Internet access didn't work for me ... nobody seemed to know why.
The hotel was great and the staff were excellent they were very helpful and the food was great specially the breakfast. At the hotel you feel like home and it's warm to stay there.
The staff were really excellent and friendly, took time from their work to talk and answer questions and gave the feeling that they were doing it because they wanted to, not that it was part of their duties. The location, whilst close to Freiburg, was quiet, but near to local transport and other facilities. The fabric of the hotel was in good condition and was spotlessly clean. If you like good quality, a choice of restaurants, friendly staff, this hotel is to be recommended. We were unable to fully appreciate the balcony, due to the poor weather!!!
staff did everything for making my stay as good as possible. The food was exquisite
Very helpful and polite personnel. Room, restaurant and breakfast very good. Impure pool. Big apartment house beside of the pool. Reservation of parking place is needed.
This hotel is fabulous!! It surpassed our expectations! We actually stayed an additional 2 days. The rooms are lovely, clean and very comfortable. The restaurants -there are 2 - are very, very good. This hotel is located in Lehen, which is a residential area on the out skirts of Frieburg. There is trolley service into the city a few blocks away from the hotel. Driving into the city is easy too. I highly recommend this hotel. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
Excellent location (although surprising how noisy a pedestrian street can be at night), comfortable bed, good breakfast, very helpful staff.
This hotel is in a lovely part of town - very central. Rooms were extremely well kept and clean and a good size. Breakfast was enjoyable and quite substatial. We had no view from our room. We looked onto a tiny court yard and straight into someones office window.
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good. They have DVD players in the rooms with a great selection of movies at no charge. A great idea as it was a Sunday, cold and raining when we were there. Everything is closed on Sundays. They also offer free internet, which every hotel should have. We give this hotel a 10 out of 10. The only down side is that it is fairly hard to find as it is in the pedestrian section of town but very handy to everything and totally worth while.
Hotel is right down town... great location! Very hard to find.
friendly staff, wonderful food, very clean hotel, perfect location bed too hard, could use more pillows in room, extra blankets in the room, many other hotels have extras in the cabinets.
Very centrally located, reduced parking rates, DVDs available at reception free of charge Breakfast selection was not very big (but sufficient).
Housekeeping was fabulous. She was very warm and did a thorough job. I stayed at a five star hotel in Munich and the housekeeping in that luxury hotel could not hold a candle next to hotel am rathus'. Location was also perfet. Bed was very comfortable. I found the lack of curtains a bit of a put off. The shower stall was in the bedroom and the window faces other rooms (yes... I could see the occupants in the room). The room curtains were the sheer type that are completely see through if you turn on the lights in the room. So showering at night was quite the experience
It's proximity to attractions in the city and to the station
Room was very comfortable and staff very friendly. Also, had free coffee and tea in reception area
Very comfortable spot, centrally located in Freiburg, excellent breakfast, pleasant staff, enjoyed use of computer in lobby, music and movie availability, tea and coffee and treats throughout the day. nothing!!
Convenient location, good room rate, v friendly and helpful staff, excellent breakfast.
The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Location is excellent and room is large Room design is old-fashioned, there is no A/C and being on the 1st floor with open window all night long does not feel safe.
Central place,Room was good.
Very central, located just off the main Kaiser Joseph Strasse, literally 2 mins from the main thoroughfare. Walking distance 10 mins from Hauptbahnhof. Rooms were excellent, especially for the price, and staff were friendly to people who hit the town running and didn't get in until 5am. Nothing
It was cosy and comfortable
Breakfast staff were attentive and reception staff helpful The rooms are a little smaller than we would have liked. Some noise transmission in the night from neighbouring room
It was reasonable price and quite central just walking distance to munster area.comforatble nice hotel none
Hotel staff very friendly, rooms are nice, breakfast is good
All the staff were pleasant and helpful at all times. The breakfast room was well presented and there was a good choice of buffet. Bedroom was comfortable and the decor well considered. We like this being an independent hotel; it is free of international corporate identity. Whilst the location is both central and relatively quiet, the immediate street setting is not particularly attractive in a very attractive town.The room could be a bit stuffy, even though the window was openable. The room was a little small, if our stay was to be longer than a couple of days.
rooms so tiny also the bathroom
Courtesy of staff. Quality of breakfast.
The proximity to the railway station. To allow early checkin. I was allowed to go to the room only at 3PM.
Conveniently placed near the station and close to centre. Very good breakfast
nearness to transport links and the town itself.
Location, close to the station, and the underground parking facility.
Right by the train, bus and tram. Shuttle to Basel airport 25 m away. Comfortable and spacious rooms. The free city ticket for transportation is a plus. Slow Wi-Fi.if want better WiFi 8€/day. Lower category hotels offer free high speed Wi-Fi.
Being right over the city train tracks, it's too noisy to have the window open, which kept it too hot....
Very good location, near the city center and the railway station. The upper level rooms are calm and have a nice view. You get a free bus/tram ticket during the period of your stay, which can be very handy. I would mainly recommend this hotel for business trips and not for touristic stays. The parking and the breakfast are not free of charge, the room rates seemed quite high (a late reservation was made). The hotel building and the rooms might need some refreshment. The business double room is quite small, but otherwise satisfactory.
another nice stay...
Room was new and comfortable. Price was too high and the front desk refused to negotiate. I had to book online while standing in the hotel...they wouldn't even lower it to match.
Hotel is right in the city center, clean and well organised. Staff very friendly, parking available (although small). Average age of guests might be 70 - not a negative just a note.
The staff were friendly, but not all adequately trained. The TV was old, slightly broken and very fiddly even compared to other hotel TVs! Otherwise it was perfectly OK though.
Very comfortable, cozy and friendly. Wonderful location. Bears everywhere :-) It would be a bit better with free internet (wifi) access, but not essential.
Charming, comfortable hotel with excellent service.
Very central; good food; helpful staff; nice clean accommodation glass toilet door gives no privacy to toilet user or other person in room
Breakfast is very good and generally staying in the hotel is very pleasant. Rooms at the back are mostly quiet, although there is no escape from people banging doors in the middle of the night, and the noise from air conditioners and the mechanism operating garage doors.
The location is excellent. Atmosphere is very nice. The staff very helpful, and polite. Our room (#15) was extremely pleasant and spacious. Internet costs eight euros per hour.
The location was great, the rooms were good, the breakfast was good. My room faced onto the main street, and so there was quite a lot of light coming through the window - but I guess thats what you should expect when staying in the centre of town. better blinds/curtains would help.
Hotel is in a great location in the center of the city. Breakfast was good, but not spectacular. The hotel staff were helpful and kind. The advertised photos were not representative of the room we stayed in. The shower leaked and the bathroom was in need of cleaning and repair. The bathroom shares a wall with the bathroom next door and doesn't offer much privacy, i.e. you can hear what's "happening" next door. The room is very overpriced for the level of amenities provided.
Very friendly relaxed atmos. Evening meal - good choice and nicely cooked. The Waiter was slightly irritating. Breakfast room very nice and calm start to the day.
Excellent breakfast buffer, proximity to downtown and train station. No free internet in the room. Room was too hot.
It is very convenient, right in the centre between the train station and the old town, both stone's throw away. A small hiccup is the high tech room phone which was not working; did not bother to request change of phone, which if done, pretty sure hotel staff would have obliged.
Very nice hotel. Excellent breakfast. Convenient to the old part of Freiberg. It was a very modern business hotel for a touristy trip to the Black Forest. Not geared for tourists wanting some local ambiance. More our fault than theirs.
Very welcoming, good location
Very nice well-designed and appointed room with plenty of space. A little overpriced.
Good location of the hotel, comfort, friendli personal. Especially - waitress at the breakfast in the restaurant and young women at the reception. Nothing
breakfast was excellent, with its variety and the quality of the food the bathroom was not very well constructed, the ceiling was shoddy, the showercurtain was make-shift, the towl hanger was coming off the wall.
The fact that it was central and functional. No complaints.
The meal in the hotel restaurant
Staff very kind, good location
The hotel was easy to find, and in a lovely little village - central to many Black Forest excursions. Breakfast was wonderful! Our kids enjoyed the indoor pool as well. For a family with younger children, we found the hotel's restaurant to be on the pricey side (but this was true of all the restaurants in the village) - got the impression that it's not really a family hotel, though the staff were very friendly and accommodating.
We used the hotel as a base for day trips throughout southern Germany and Switzerland. The hotel was convenient to many wonderful places and a great place to come back to after a long day. The staff was "extremely" helpful and accommodating.
Lovely staff and breakfast
Location was great - used hotel for our base to travel through the Black Forest. Breakfast included in hotel rate. Most of our encounters with staff were positive, however, limited as we were away from hotel touring. Delicious breakfast. Charming small town. Hotel located on main road, easy to find. Sufficient parking. Room comfortable. Beautiful view from our bedroom balcony/deck. No complaints.
very good room, spacious, with my balcony overlooking the river/forest. a bit out of the way, but a travel pass is provided, and I think on the whole worth the extra bit of travel out of Freiburg to have the beautiful surroundings.
Very friendly staff Did not sleep very well because bed was rather small and squeaky
Two nigths stay-over on our return trip to DK, excellent restaurant and reasonable prices at the restaurant
The view from our balcony was terrific! Staff does not speak english, except for one employee who by the way was very nice. The pool closes too early.
Same people didn't speak englich
