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

We stayed in room # 34 , which is a 4 bed family and the room was absolutely perfect for our family with 2 kids ( 10 and 12) . It was spacious and clean with a great view. All the main attraction in Heidelberg are within walking distance Yes it was pricey but totally worth it. GREAT ROOM !

This is a nice small hotel in the center of Heidelberg. The rooms are rather traditional and monastical-looking but with all the commodities. And I really liked it like that. The hotel is the junction of two or more different buildings with the restaurant downstairs. Once dropped off by the taxi in front of the hotel, it was had to... More

Stayed here for one night. Parking place (which cost 10 euro per night) was a bit of a challenge, there was non... But the very helpful staff moved the terrace so our car would fit right in. Room on the ground floor was huge and very clean. Right in front of the window (like 50cm from the window) cars were... More

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
