Clarion Hotel Hirschen

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

2nd annual trip to Freiburg and 2nd time at Clarion Hotel Hirschen. It definitely won't be our last. We love this hotel. OK it's not 5* plush, but it's solid 4*, and the service is really very good indeed. The hotel manages to be cosy despite its rather austere, plain exterior, although the traditional gaststette at it is entrance is enchanting. The room décor is a bit 90's early 2000's, dated, but somehow it just adds to the appeal and the beds are very comfy. The bathroom is so clean, it literally looks like they have just fitted it! The breakfast is truly excellent in fact the food in general is very good. The pool area is simply charming, set in a garden. The location is also really handy to get into the main area of Freiburg and out to places like Titisee (not to be missed). I guess the only thing that might put one off is that there are some residential apartments close by, but to be honest the indoor and outdoor slatted blinds are easy to adjust so that no one can see in. I would also suggest there were more than English news programmes available on the TV in your room - some English language films would be great, but in truth that's a small consideration. 10 out of 10 at least for this hotel!

The hotel is small and you feel like you are in a family house. The rooms are cozy and very clean. The breakfast is complete, you can find everything. The conference rooms are functional and the service is perfect. I enjoyed the experience, thank you

I stayed here one night on business. Easy to find with plenty of underground parking. Great check-in service, very fast, NO bureaucracy and I was in my room within 5 minutes. The rooms are large and comfortable, with a decent bed, TV with some English channels, fair working space and a good sized and equipped bathroom. The hotel restaurant is also very good, with fresh food served swiftly and with friendly, attentive service. Breakfast is good, with a good selection and decent coffee (albeit machine made) available. The service and friendliness of the staff is outstanding. Always smiling and ready to help. Overall, a pleasantly surprising find in Freiburg and I will be back.

My wife and I visited Freiburg in March of 2016. I took a shot and booked this hotel without any prior knowledge. What a great find. This hotel is situated in a small neighborhood community away from the city. The rooms were very nice and quite large for Europe. The front desk staff helped us with our daily itineraries and were very knowledgeable. Breakfast at the hotel was wonderful.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Friendly service, nice ambiente. Ask for the so-called KOMFORT ZIMMER for a better view and small balcony. Easy tram connection (14 min plus 5 min walk) to the city center but outside of the inner center, not a lot nearby. Good if you commute to surrounding places not focusing on a few nights in Freiburg. Excellent and varied, healthy breakfast choices. If you want to use the sauna/ wellness area please make sure to let the front desk know 30 minutes prior - only heated upon request. Vanity items are sparse, no body lotion etc. Pillows and covers are basic. Felt comfortable and welcome and will stay there again when visiting

I grew up in Freiburg and come back very frequently. The owners and staff are great and go out of the way to make each stay a great experience. The food and wine list is great. We had the white and black truffle menu and are always treated to great meals.

We stayed here for a couple of nights while in the area. The hotel is quite small with a small swimming pool, shared with the residents of an apartment block. The hotel also has a nice little garden and a terrace where one can have meals al fresco. It's in Lehen, a village in Freiburg municipality. Regrettably, when we stayed there, the main road into Freiburg was all dug up and closed to traffic which made trips into Freiburg by car difficult as one had to go around using the motorway. Not the hotel's fault, of course, but some information and perhaps a warning on their site would have been appreciated.Our room was comfortable enough but the bed had the most stupid metal headboard I've ever seen, made of metal railings. One could not use it to rest head or lean on it which made reading in bed or watching telly rather tricky. The pillows were also rather uncomfortable. The breakfast was good but at €15 per person, one would expect so. Their rather inefficient order-and-wait-to-be-served coffee system, as others have already pointed out, made the breakfast service rather slow as the waiting staff was struggling to clear the tables fast enough and serve coffee to guests at the same time. A couple of self-service coffee machines would have resolved this! We found the breakfast service staff on our first morning charming and well trained, if a bit slow, but on our second morning, with the influx of weekend guests, we found the young waiter in the dining room (who was in no rush to clear a table for us) and the waitress on the terrace, where we eventually had to clear a table ourselves, rather overwhelmed. The waitress was particularly flustered and we never even got a half smile. I don't think she enjoyed her job very much! All in all, considering the rate we were paying (€160 per night with breakfast) and the location (well out of town), this was not particularly good value- for- money or indeed a special place. Being a part of Clarion group, rather than a German chain, we also expected coffee/tea serving facilities in the room - there were none! I guess this was more 3.5 stars place but I've been generous and have given it 4* as the staff were really nice and welcoming (well, most of them!).

we stop over at the Clarion Hirschen at least twice a year on your trip from the Netherlands to Italy and viceversa. This nice and cosy hotel is a special treat breaking the long car journey in two. The place is very conveniently located just 5min off the motorway but in an absolutely quiet and relaxing small rural town atmosphere. Rooms are spacious, clean and prettily decorated in a charming landhaus-style. Breakfast buffet is delicious with a vast array of local delicacies. Staff very friendly and forthcoming. we'll be back on our next trip!

Hirsh is a nice, rather small hotel in a suburb of Freiburg. Nicel decoration and mid sized rooms. Excellent and friendly service - rare to find nowadays. Very clean. Very quiet "SPA area somewhat of a disappointment, not a lot Location is a bit outside - but easy connection with the tram Very good value for money if you do not need to be in downtown

Great hotel .very good service.nice confort rooms highly recommed.i will visit there again. The swimming pool is very nice and since most of the guest are bussines people every time i went to the swimming pool i found myself alone.almost like private pool
