We really liked this hotel, and will return to it. Location - right in the middle of the historic area, we were able to walk to everything. The plaza literally outside the door was fantastic, lots of eating and drinking choices. Everything was accessible - we walked to the hotel with our bags from the train station, and the whole...

We read about this hotel on TripAdvisor and it was a good choice for us. We walked from the train station and were able to explore Old Town on foot from the hotel. The front desk staff were very helpful in recommending a restaurant for dinner. We had a nice view from the room to the cobblestone street and historic...

The location of this hotel can't be beat - right in the centre of the old town. Restaurants, shops, train station all close by. We were warmly welcomed when we arrived (long before check in hours started). The staff are awesome - very friendly, knowledgeable about the city and had great tips on what to see/where to go. The rooms...

As other reviewers have said noisy neighbourhood. We were on the top floor so rooms were warm. We wanted to have a window open for some air. As our room was over the alley way it was noisy. If we shut the window it might have been quieter. We should have asked if the hotel had a fan. Quirky layout...

Dear ozveildancer We thank you for your visit and your review about your stay. You were accommodated in our top floor room with its own terrace. On warm sunny days, the roof top terrace is operated from our historic wine cave, but only until 10pm. All rooms are equipped with a fan during summer time, we bring them to the...

This hotel is well positioned in the old city, close to the main train station, shops, etc. The hotel feels like a small guest house with all the features of a family business. Staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The hotel has an old, familier feel to it. I can recommend it. Ashley Ally

I received a really friendly welcome at reception and the staff were consistently helpful throughout my stay. I had a single room on the side of the hotel so no noise from the street as I have read other guests experienced. Great breakfast of cold meats, cheeses, breads, juices and endless coffee served for a very generous long period. The...

The hotel is located a short walking distance from the main railway station and close to tram services. It is ideally situated for wandering in the old city, along the river and by the lake. Our room was clean and comfortable; street noise at night was low to moderate and did not affect sleep (we stayed two nights mid-week and...

Hotel Hirschen is a good value in a very expensive city. The people at the front desk were always nice and helpful. The breakfast was very good. The room wasn't fancy but it was clean, the bed was comfortable, and had important amenities like a tea pot, hair dryer and T.V. (though there are no English tv stations). The location...
