Spent several nights on business. Located just across the river and a short walk into the town centre. Rooms are bright decor is an acquired taste (think Laura Ashley) but clean and spacious. Bathroom modern and the molton brown toiletries a nice touch. The dining rooms are worth the stay alone - home of an historic duelling club the light... More

Stayed 4 nights here taking a 2 bedroom suite. First the location - just a short stroll from the old bridge on the other side of the river from the old town, proved an unforeseen benefit as the hotel was well away from the hurly burly of Heidelburg in summer so was an oasis with free parking. We met a... More

This is a wonderfully quirky, luxury hotel which is hard to fault on any level. It is over five hundred years old, set in a beautiful valley just yards from the Neckar river. It is about a ten minute walk to the old town which is also beautiful. From the moment we arrived we were treated as valued guests (by... More

First off, the hotel is -- overall -- delightful, but a bit worn. The room in which we stayed was in dire need of an upgrade (at a minimum, a paint job and some new wallpaper...) The staff is helpful and courteous, and the Michelin 1-star restaurant is superb and worth the trip in and of itself. We had a... More

Dear NYCCS, You have my full sympathy and we are very sorry that a silly misunderstanding has cut a very good critic in half. We had a double booking from the restaurant, so instead of booking only two breakfast at EUR 23 each four were booked. The of course unjustified amount of EUR 46 has been credited already onto your... More

Very historical and inspiring hotel, which deserves to mention to be decorated the Laura Ashley way: indeed, you feel like staying by The Little House in the Prairie!!! Rooms, bedding and bathrooms were amazing although a bit dusty... Reception staff (see also your name on the door bell! lol) is great although the restaurant one looks more mitigated; the inn...

This small luxury hotel was a gem to find in Heidelburg. Marcella at the front desk was very helpful, gracious and hospitable. She showed us how to get to town, enjoy the beautiful sights, where to drink the best coffee, nearest gas station. All their rooms were suites, ours opened directly to the garden. Our room was beautifully furnished befitting... More

This is a charming individual hotel. As befits a Small Luxury Hotel of the World the Service is first class. Very personal, very profesisonal but without being intrusive. Couple of nice touches including Prosecco on arrival and having the name outside our door. Breakfast was very good, although the room is very dark (Lots of deep reds and greens) The... More

Dear mdcryan, Thank you so much for your positive comment; we are glad that you have been our guest. It’s a real pity that we did not have place for you in our restaurants. Since we have been awarded a Michelin star the demand and reservation situation have increased. Therefore a pre-reservation is absolutely advisable. Should we be full, then... More

A German country style hotel across the Neckar river in a quiet location. It has a renowned restaurant and a weinstube with memorabilia from the cadet days when students fought duels for bravery and honor. The hotel is run with care by the Kraft family and is a wonderful antidote to anonymous luxury hotel chains. The location is good for... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The historic Hirschgasse Heidelberg, which is a listed building and over 540 years old, was the place for student fraternities and clubs to fence and celebrate - the oldest in Germany.Now 20 Laura Ashley suites offer a luxurious country house style, all in different design and layouts, which are offered in three categories such as: Junior | Deluxe | Salon. For the ones who do not like identikit chain hotels we are providing the right antidote with a private and familiar ambiance. Check our own official website for daily best rates and offers with growing rewards.Only a short scenic walk along the river Neckar across the Old Bridge (Alte Brücke) brings you into the heart of the Old Town. Retreat to our peace and quietness once the hustle and bustle of the city is too much for you. The nearness to the famous Philosopher’s walk and the holy mountain starting behind our hotel is a paradise for jogging and hiking.Two restaurants offer unique character and quality. The Mensustube with lots of historic memorabilia of the bygone studentic times serving local authentic Food. The Le Gourmet awarded with one Michelin star and 16 points in the Gault Millau accompanies with very charming French service and large wine selection onto a fine culinary expedition.An outstanding luxurious Butler’s breakfast served individually, without having to "fight" on a big buffet for the last piece of sausage, is an experience to start the day relaxed. ... more   less
