We recently stayed at the Zum Hirschen (February 2014). Frau Renate, her family and staff were genuinely friendly and welcoming. Location, comfort, food, cleanliness, personal touches - this hotel ticks all the boxes! We have no hesitation in recommending it. It was our fourth trip to Zell am See but our first time in the Zum Hirschen. The search is over! We'll definitely be back!!! Con and Breda

We stayed at the Zum Hirschen from 08 Feb - 15 Feb 2014, the hotel room which was a junior suite was large and roomy with austrian beds and a sofa and armchair, the bathroom had double sinks, shower/bath with a separated toilet and a bidet area.
The hotel was literally a couple of minutes walk to the city xpress, so perfect for the slopes or if you wanted to travel elsewhere the bus station was a minutes walk away.
I have to say the food was AMAZING!!!! A 5 course meal every evening, the main course was a choice of either fish, meat or vegetarian the hotel asked for you to make a choice a breakfast which was fine, if there isn't anything on the menu that day that you like you can chose from the a la carte at a discounted rate, there was a weather report every morning and events happening in the town, the serving staff were fabulous and couldn't do enough for you.
If I return to Zell am See, I would definitely return to this hotel.
The added bonus was that the hotel is non smoking.

Room Tip: We chose the 3rd floor and it was very quiet and we was above the Gin House!!! Ask for extra pillow...

A lovely family run hotel with typical Austrian features in an ideal, central location.
Staff were super efficient, requests were actioned immediately.
Each morning we had a weather report and a list of local events for the day on our breakfast table.
Food was lovely with a good choice on the half board menu each day. I had lunch on one day from the "Short Menu" which was a delicious pasta dish, reasonably priced.
We had a big room above the terrace bar which we had been warned on tripadvisor would be noisy. We immediately requested a move but another room wasn't available on check-in day, we were advised to check with reception again the following day following guest check-outs. However, one of our group had a room with shower only (no bath) - with this being a ski holiday we decided to stick to the room with the bath. Noise was not a problem at night as Apres Ski ended early but a bigger problem in the morning - snow was shipped into the street on 2 mornings to allow for street races (these don't happen every week) and they started the work at 6am!
A slight annoyance was that the hotel bar did not offer a 'full' drink service, if we wanted cocktails we had to go down to the basement bar and bring the drinks back up ourselves, bar staff could not do this for us which was a bit disappointing but they did offer beer and some spirits.
Housekeeping staff were excellent with our room serviced most mornings while we were at breakfast - the hotel is extremely clean.
I would definitely stay here again.

This is an excellent hotel. Everything is of a high standard, rooms are very comfortable, big with modern bathrooms. It is in a perfect location in Zell Am Zee, close to everything and just 200 meters from the gondala.

Breakfast and dinner in were both excellent and there is a nice sauna and plunge pool downstairs.

We stayed two nights for a ski weekend but hope to return.

Last week me and my brother had a very pleasant stay at Hotel Zum Hirschen, just as the previous years. The service was very good, all we wanted was taken care of immediately. For sure will come back in 2015.

Have just spent a week in this cosy, friendly hotel with family and friends. It is cosy and welcoming, the rooms are a good size (even the standard ones) and the food is excellent. Breakfasts were ample and varied and the five course evening meals were fantastic, well above average. The nine course New Years Eve dinner was lovely and well spaced out so that it ended quite late, just ready for the celebrations. The staff were friendly and attentive and the service was very good. The location is great, being well placed for the town, bus station, railway station and lifts. It made visiting places like Salzburg or Innsbruck very easy. We had no major issues with noise except what you would normally expect in a town.
