Eventually found my way to the Gasthaus, sat nav had me going up streets the wrong way!!! There were loads of pedestrian streets and me, driving sheepishly, saw others later in the day doing the same. The street the Gasthaus is on, I was told you are allowed to drive up it if parking there. Checked in early and got... More

Gasthaus Backmulde is right in the heart of the old town, the location could not be better. I did a group booking and the hotel were very accommodating about cancellation policies and requirements for a few single occupancy rooms. We booked a group dinner for 30 people and the food and service was excellent. It took a little negotiation to... More

If you're backpacking this hotel is a nice walk from the train station but there are busses available as well. The front desk staff was very friendly and they had a very filling breakfast. Very good central location. Take the time to run along the river!

Great service, great location, great price - amenities are average but typical of local German hotels. Really nice people who put a premium on service. Free breakfast was nice and the restaurant had great charm and service as well.

Very nice, comfortable room (no frills, but an easy place to rest and work). Terrific, friendly staff. Nice breakfast room, with a wide range of choices. Perfect location for both getting to the university and sightseeing.

Finding a great hotel on the main pedestrian drag was a challenge, especially on short notice. If we found one at a reasonable rate, that would have been a huge, delightful surprise. Voila, to borrow a word from the neighboring French we hit the jackpot here. Housed in an ornate once clothing emporeum this is the oldest hotel we remember... More

Great location, right in the centre of Heidelberg, with parking which is tight with room for maybe 6 cars, but no problem. However, if the parking is full there is an excellent underground car park less than 5 minutes walk away. Our room (23) on the second floor was immaculate, very comfortable and a good size overlooking the courtyard/parking area.... More

We spent a lovely weekend in Heidelberg during a heat wave and were thrilled to have our air-conditioned room to retreat to. As others have noted, it is well-located and easy walking distance to all attractions. The staff was very nice and our room was very quiet - we were off to the side of the hotel overlooking a courtyard... More
