If I had to write a dictionary entry for the phrase "top tier", I would start by describing the Goldener Falke! For those looking for a posh high-end hotel with a fancy cover this place is not for you. However, if you're looking for humility, warmth, character, and comfort, this place is definitely for you. Very friendly lady runs the... More

Great location and lovely room with fabulous view of the castle. The funicular ride to the castle and higher is a short walk away. We had the business suite which was perfect for 2 adults and 2 young kids. Food was good and staff were friendly. Only reason it doesn't get an 'Excellent' is the free wifi is very slow... More

Couldn't quite believe our luck that the room overlooked the market place, amazing to soak up the atmosphere. No noise once the windows were closed, not noisy during the night. Tricky place to access (3 big steps) but they do have a lift. Breakfast ok - have had better. Location made up for this.

The Galdener Falke Hotel is perfectly situated in the city center of Heidelberg, exactly in the main square where the cathedral is located and 5 minutes walking from the tram to the castle / Schloss. However, as we booked a family room our building was situated in the same street but 300 meters away. In fact, Goldener Falke owns or... More

My daughter and I stayed in a large twin bed room (and a futon we did not need) on a Friday evening in June for 1 night. We were crunched for time and wanted to stay central in the old town. This is as central as you can get without the expense of the Hotel Zum Ritter. Our room and... More

I was a little frustrated with my stay here. I thought this place was a bit pricey, but had heard wonderful reviews so I decided to splurge a little to stay here. It turned out to be pretty disappointing. My main complaint is that there is no "official" reception desk or someone dedicated to the reception. I asked for example... More

I'm still surprised by the fantastic size of our family room accommodations at the Goldener Falke- the two bedrooms and a kitchen were lovely and the location of the hotel can't be beat. Also, the breakfast is delicious.

The perfect place to stay in Heidelberg. Its a cute little hotel on the main square in the old town. We were welcomed warmly and everyone was so friendly and helpful. We had a perfect room overlooking the square. We had upgraded our room and had a suite the size of a small apartment with every amenity. The hotel is... More

A really nice old world hotel in a lovely square. We stayed overnight en route to Calais for a ferry. It proved an excellent choice. Warm welcome and an excellent breakfast.Will use again should we be in the area

The hotel itself is nice enough, but the best part is the location - right on the Marktplatz in the Old Town. There is an underground parking garage about 2 blocks away where we left our car for 2 days (16 Euros for 24 hours). Although it is in the old town area, there are double windows so the noise...
