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

Disappointing. This was once a nice hotel but clearly has not been looked after in recent years. Garden/plant pots not maintained, dirty windows, ripped and stained carpets, weeds growing on the balcony floor, mouldy areas in the bathroom, the furniture in the restaurant in need of tlc, no coffee/tea facilities etc. We spent a week at this hotel but the...

We stayed at the Lowen in early July. the hotel is rated a 4 star - but it is barely 3 star... the rooms are large- but the amenities are very plain. The room floors were stained, TV small, it is essentially a small town hotel without the charm... And it is far from the center of the city, so... More

Since 2006 this hotel has served as a base for our annual April visit to a fair, that is held in Basel, Switzerland. This family run hotel is very comfortable, though not perfect. The surrounding of the hotel is very nice, since it is located in a small suburb outside the city center of Freiburg. For travellers with a car,... More
