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

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
