My partner and I stayed here over the Grand Prix weekend and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is situated on a pedestrianised area which runs between the river and the Hauptstrass (high street). Even still, it was very quiet given it's location. This does mean driving there is quite tricky however we used a shuttle service from the airport and... More

If you like walking everywhere, this is the hotel to book. Every place is within walking distance. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Room 19 is spacious with A/C and a big shower room. All the toiletries are included, hairdryer too. Breakfast is served till 11 am and you certainly don't need lunch if you help yourself to all... More

This is an excellent choice if you want to stay right in downtown Heidelberg. This means that driving there is a bit tricky--the hotel does give proper instructions, though--and the early bird (meaning guest arriving around noon) may catch one of the few parking spaces right next to the recessed hotel entrance. The rooms are fine, large, and breakfast is... More

Small hotel on a quiet side street, the place was perfect for me. The room was very large, and the bathroom was a good size. The air conditioner worker very well!! Breakfast was meats, cheeses, breads, cereals, and fruit. I arrived later than I had planned on, so I checked in at the restaurant attached. It worked just fine for... More

The Gasthaus Hotel Backmulde stands out as one of our two favorite hotels during our fourteen day stay in Germany. From the moment we were warmly greeted at the front desk to the delicious fresh breakfast each morning, everything about this hotel is a standout. We had a large room on the third floor (there are a LOT of stairs)... More

I was invited to give a talk at Heidelberg University. The Uni put me up at this hotel, so I had no expectations. The hotel is lovely. It is simple and clean! The breakfasts were very good and not to be missed. They have wonderful breads and soft poached eggs. If you are looking for something basic, simple, clean, and... More

An excellent stay overall. The staff are very helpful and nothing is to much trouble - they even spent some time moving large plant pots around so we could park our motorcycles safely. Room was very clean and tidy and the breakfast excellent quality and almost unbelievable value for money at 5 Euros. One point to mention is that the... More

We could not have picked a better location, within the old town and steps from the main pedestrian shopping strasse, the castle and the bridge. Location alone made me swoon, but the hotel itself was lovely, clean and cozy and the staff, particularly Christina (spelling?) at the front desk, warm and helpful. Our room overlooked a courtyard and was a... More

We stayed there 3 nights. We had the room 34 which is on the last floor, with great volume and great size (3 windows!), about 30 square meters! The breakfast was rather good (not so big but reasonable choice of fresh food) and the staff very friendly. I could park my car in the hotel parking lot for 10 box... More

Stayed one night here while visiting Heidelburg. The room was clean and cozy, the bed comfortable, and the staff pleasant. The morning breakfast, which was included for us, was a nice variety, hitting the spot.
