Nice hotel at quite area. Yet not too far from City Centre. Friendly Staff. Free internet at all areas but needs boosting at some weak signal spots. Free parking is available on site. Nice breakfast. Country style hotel. Location of hotel within easy reach to major Highway links.

I found this hotel through Trip Advisor and it was a good choice. Although it is outside the main area it was a short drive to the old town. We were traveling with an adult son and needed a triple room. It was reasonable and a very nice room. They have a restaurant in house that was excellent for dinner... More

This hotel is also called Hotel Schwär's Löwen (just in case!). We visited this hotel as a family. The hotel is outside of Freiburg although there is a bus stop outside to get into town. We had a car, so this was not a problem (and parking is OK in the city centre when we were there). The car park... More

We extended our visit here to three days because we just loved this hotel. It's location is just minutes from old town Frieburg a great place to visit. It's a great place to base for a trip to the Black Forrest, (Schwartzwald) to check out the cuckoo clocks and have a slice of Black Forrest cake. This hotel offers the... More

Stumbled on this place last night. €43 or so with breakfast, dinner can be gotten from their kitchen until 2030. Bar open until 12 AM. Decent breakfast. After a long day on the road I only wanted beer, dinner and some kind of music. Last night, they had all 3. I was able to use the garage under the house... More

This is one of our Black Forest favorites. The rooms are spotless, and the restaurant is so good. We've been here a few times and when we end up in Freiburg we won't stay anywhere else. The memories when the kids were small always make us smile. The tram is right across the street. And if you're in a hurry... More

I stayed at the Schwaers Loewen with a friend over New Year 2013/2014. Two things let this hotel down, and they let it down badly. The first is the approach, the entrance and the common areas. It is not acceptable in a hotel with advertises itself as four star to have shabby tables outside the entrance which itself is old... More

Spent 2 nights in this hotel as part of a family road trip. We're a well travelled family and have stayed in hotels all over the world. Having stayed in Hotel Loewen, the family has now unanimously voted it the worst hotel of them all. Marketing this hotel as 4 star is frankly misrepresentation, in fact it is really a... More

We booked very late and had little choice. The other reviews and rating on tripadvisor worried us. But in all not bad at all. The property is clearly old but the rooms were clean and the staff was helpful. The family room was very good value for money. Only a few minutes away from Freiburg. I would definitely re-rate it...

After staying at the Schwaer's Loewen for the third time in the past 6 months, we feel it really could use an improvement in attitude as well as equipment. The rooms lack a basic refrigerator and are only basic in furniture. There are no mirrors in the room where you can do your hair or put on makeup, only the... More
