Thoughtful and caring staff
We recently spent 5 nights at Hotel Barbara. We couldn't have asked for a more thoughtful and attentive front desk staff. They made sure that our stay with them was a wonderful memory.
The hotel is in a great location within walking distance of the Old Town and the train station. There were plenty of restaurants and shops close by. We started each morning off with a delicious breakfast and returned at the end of our daily adventures, to a very clean room.
The only difficulty we had was there was no elevator and lots of stairs to get to the rooms. However the observant staff noticed our difficulty right away and stepped in with a solution that was just right for our circumstances. We found our room a bit tight to get around but appreciated it was in a heritage building so the room was small. The ambience of the hotel more than made up for the size of the room.

Old fashioned hotel
We spent two weeks travelling in the Basle-Berne region in Switzerland, then the Colmar-Strasbourg region in France and finally a brief visit to Freiburg. All our other hotels were in the "modern" category, so it was a pleasant change to stay in this old-fashioned hotel at a reasonable cost. Attractive exterior and a very short walk to the old town. Breakfast was included (boiled eggs to order, cold meats, toast, croissants, pot of coffee etc) - much appreciated after the nonsense of Swiss breakfasts costing CHF 25 whether you had a full meal or just a coffee and a croissant, meaning we had to start each day looking for breakfast somewhere else....
No A/C but it was not hot while we were there. No lift but we were on the first floor. Rooms are small for couples but we were brother and sister so not sharing a room. Delightful staff.

Good and Bad
This hotel is in a great location - a 10 minute walk to the Munster in the aldstadt.. It's also cheap and easy if you have a car. We were able to pull up on the street outside for a few minutes whilst we unloaded and then ywe drove a block away to a multi-storey. The hotel gave us a ticket for two nights when we arrived - at a cost of 12 euro a night ( good for Freiburg). We paid the hotel when we checked out so it couldn't have been easier.
Breakfast was good - cold meats, breads , cereals and fresh fruits. They also cooked a boiled egg to order. Staff were friendly. Wifi was also good. The bed was firm and comfy but only one pillow and lumpy.
It is an old house - it has the benefits of a lovely atmosphere but also some of the pitfalls such as no lift. The worst of all was the temperature of the room. We stayed in June with temperatures of mid 30.'s. We had one of the bigger rooms but it was small..... and with no air conditioning it was an unbearable sweat box. We found a fan and it helped a little but not enough to get a good nights sleep. We couldn't leave the the windows open during the day because they have a pigeon problem.
We would come back in the winter but would not consider returning in the summer.

Tiny room but great location
This is a very quaint old hotel in a great location - easy walking distance to everything. Downsides were the buzzer to get in (altho they were always quick to buzz us in), walking up 4 flights of stairs with our bags (no lift), having to pay for parking, and the size of the room (really, really tiny). Upsides were the location (very quiet side street next to a very busy area), the breakfast, the price, and the very friendly staff. The room was really clean and very cute, and the old-style hotel really charming tho.

Cozy boutique hotel
Our stay began with a couple of frustrations, one being that there was no parking (you have to go down the street to park in a garage, though the hotel at least provides you with a discount for it). The other was the buzzer to get in in order to check in: We stood outside (in the rain) for 5 minutes before someone finally noticed us and buzzed us in.
After that, it was a lovely stay. The hotel is on a side street, so is fairly quiet. Inside, it is deliciously quaint, with creaking wooden stairs, old fashioned key chains, named rooms. Since we needed a room to sleep 4 people, we requested an "Apartment Room", which had a double bed and a double sofa-bed. The bathroom was pretty small, but the room itself was otherwise a decent size. The breakfast was buffet style and traditional with meats, cheeses, boiled eggs, breads, fruit, etc, to select from. The breakfast room was very small, however, and when we arrived for breakfast it was full. But the staff kindly offered to call our room when space opened up, so we were able to wait in our room (not more than 10 minutes).
The location was about a ten minute walk to the Old Town, and there are things to see right around the hotel as well, like the Archaeological Museum.
