This hotel lies right in the center of the old town, perfect for walking to all the restaurants, shops and sights and yet is very peaceful. We had a very large quadruple room with a huge bathroom which would be suitable for a wheelchair user. It was very quiet even on new years eve when the whole town was very... More

Wonderful little hotel. The breakfast was wonderful, the rooms were clean and the location can't be topped! We enjoyed our visit to downtown Heidelberg and this Hotel was a great central point. Find the hotel to park was tricky. We parked and then walked to the hotel to let them tell us how to drive into their private parking area.... More

This was the most extraordinary hotel - right in the heart of Heidelberg. From the moment we arrived, on Christmas Eve, we were treated so kindly. The triple room we booked turned out to be a huge 2 bedroom apartment. Parking was available. The rooms were comfortably furnished and the beds excellent. It was quiet, and we woke to the... More

This hotel is charming and quaint, located in the heart of the old city/downtown, close to everything. It is tucked away in an alleyway which if you take a taxi isn't bad, otherwise I think it would be hard to find. I do not recommend this hotel for those who can't go up some steps or carry their luggage up... More

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.
