We stayed in a double room which was quite lovely. Large enough with a chair and a settee which looked like it could turn into a single (?). There was a hair dryer, but no minibar and no wine glasses as someone else noted. However, the restaurant gave us all the ice we needed for cold drinks and we were... More

Trough the Treinwinkel in the Netherlands a trip made by train all the way to Heidelberg. We were promised a comfort room, in stead of a standard room. The latter, which we got, was just 900 sq feet, and although clean and a good bathroon, too smal for people who also want to spend some time in the room after... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Backmulde. Convenient to all of old town. Good Shopping, near university and Castle. Room was clean and bath was nice. It fell short on amenities. No coffee maker, no hair dryer, wine glasses, no wine opener. Bath room window was next to an apartment complex had to have shades drawn at all times.

We weren't looking for a place to be pampered, just a place convenient to altstadt where we could park the car and forget it. Backmulde was a great solution. Near the middle of the Haupstrasse, blocks from the Neckar, food, shopping and a short walk to the funicular to the castle. We got an inexpensive room with no view and... More

Pleasant hotel in great proximity to just about everything in Heidelberg. Room was very nice with a comfortable bed (German style double bed with two separate duvets etc). Friendly staff went out of their way to help us, and the breakfast buffet was difficult to fault! Recommended.

Tucked away off a courtyard in a quiet street, but not far at all from the pedestrian Hauptstasse, Backmulde is a high class establishment. Excellent rooms and spacious bathrooms, very well lit and wifi that worked well until it went down on our last day there. Very friendly people at the front desk, who also work at the adjacent restaurant... More

Loved the proximity to eateries, shops, sights - all walkable Staff very very helpful with sourcing an alternative travel arrangement for us to return to Frankfurt as it was the weekend of German train drivers strike. Needed more time in Hberg but due to drivers strike mid week we unfortunately arrived a day late. Castle walk a must - wonderful... More

Pros: Great location - close to the Heidelbery bridge and city center; free breakfast - pretty basic, but sufficient, English-speaking staff, quiet rooms, good value for money. Cons: If you are driving to the hotel, the approach can get a little tricky due to the many one-way streets, parking lot is small with limited spots but the staff was more... More

Just wrapped up a very pleasant 5 night stay in this hotel. Superb location in the Altstadt..close to all the sites-churches, museums, restaurants and shops. A 60 sec walk to the Neckar River..and walking distance the Schloss overlooking the town and on the other side of the river to Philosophers'Way..which can easily become 2-3 hour walk through beautiful forest on...

Our room was very tiny, but the bathroom was roomy and efficient. Everything was very clean and modern. The location is convenient to walk around old town. And since it's not on a busy street, it was very quiet. The breakfast was great, and staff is very nice. Next time, we'll dine in their restaurant.
