Nice old hotel with its parking in the courtyard, a lift and a restaurant. The old town is about 10-15 minutes walk. Polite friendly staff, quite good room. But the price for the room somewhat overstated, and breakfast somewhat monotonous. In addition, in our room the toilet was very cold.

After travelling around almost all the south and east germany and switzerland we ended in Heidelberg staying at this little gem. I look for hotels that can give me an insight or experience in the local culture somehow without being touristy. I was let down by previous hotels on this trip that were just old not engaging, authetic or offering... More

We based in this hotel for Christmas in Heidelberg including dinner at their much touted French restaurant on Christmas Eve. Our room had a musty awful smell. We put pot pouri around to try and get rid of it, but it was pretty entrenched. Our room looked onto a mud embankment and we couldn't even see part of the sky.... More

Dear Helen, Thank you for comment, which we consider is not reflecting the real situation. You stayed in a very nice spacy room which, was just recently renovated, with three persons in two bedrooms with two bathrooms. This big Salon Suite is a favourite suite for families. From this room on the second floor you even see a little bit... More

Die Hirschgasse is a traditional, warm and wonderful place to stay (recommended for couples) Only 15-20 min walk to the Heidelberg Castle and Old City. Each rooms are well designed on a floral theme, and the decor inside compliments the same.A traditional German Lamb of Fish preparation is worth a try....but the breakfast is just outstanding!!

Dear Shailesh, Thank you very much for your positive comment on the Hirschgasse Heidelberg and rating our Butler Breakfast as "just outstandind". A lot of thought has gone into developing presentation and style of service for the most important meal of the day and we keep on finding out new organic farmers who provide excellent products, with animal friendly and...

Die Hirschgasse is a wonderful place to stay to visit Heildelberg. It is just a 15-minute walk to the Old City where there are several stores, restaurants, coffee shops, etc. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. One pleasant surprise is the outstanding breakfast – the best we have ever enjoyed at a hotel. They also have two wonderful restaurants on... More

I was expecting more from a luxury hotel. the furniture was outdated and needed maintenance. I didn't think cleanliness was up to par. the room smelled a bit funky. looks great from outside, but was expecting a lot more on the inside. wifi was free, but signal was weak and disconnected frequently. having said that, the hotel staff were superb,...

You will not go wrong with this beautiful historic hotel. The staff is extremely welcoming and knowledgeable. The manager told us about the philosophers walk that is right up the street from the hotel (and I literally mean UP the street). We stayed in the Rosen deluxe suite 208 and if like flowers you'll love this room. Bed was super... More

I do not know the price as I was there for a business trip. But the short stay in the Hirschgasse including a great dinner in the Bismarck or Mensur-Stube was extremely positive and charming. so much tradition and history...Not too close to the railway station but not far from the Neckar-bridges to the Old city, calm.

Heidelberg has many charms and die Hirschgasse is a great place to sample them. Located across the Neckar River from the Old City, it is both a short walk to the Hauptstrasse and a quiet refuge after an active day. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. You wouldn't learn more or be better served in a larger establishment. Parking... More

Step back into some old world comforts, with a glass of Prosecco at reception on signing in, and get shown to a room with your name tag at the door in gothic manuscript opening onto a smallish but very comfortable room with separate living area and a large four-poster bed which has to be climbed onto! Large well equipped bathroom.... More

Dear angels42, Well what would fit better for "angels" than a four poster bed. Perhaps you do not know it, but in German we call a four poster bed "Himmelbett" - a heaven bed :-) We always love it, if we can welcome guest like you, who appreciate the historic atmosphere which has grown since 1472 and reflects a true...
