Charming old European hotel. Good value for the location. 11 euro breakfast is worth it, but you have to reserve in advance because of the small breakfast room. About a 10 minute walk from the Alt Stadt S-Bahn station. Walk everywhere from the hotel.

Arrived at night. Could not see unloading area for luggage. Not well marked. Parking 3 blocks away, not kidding. Room was on outside wall. Heard all the street noise and loud conversations until 3:00 a.m for two nights. Lobby is up a flight of stairs, careful if you have a lot of luggage. Would rather pay an extra $25/$50 for... More

The hotel is great value for money, clean and just located by the old bridge. The hotel has limited room but the room I stayed was just great, big and unexpected high standard. Most importantly, the hotel is close to tourist attractions and the business street. Great value for money.

The hotel was nice. A bit old but clean and in perfect condition. Location is great, in front of a bridge, popular with tourists. The hotel's restaurant was also very good, 4.5/5! I would definitely choose this hotel again in the future!

This is a pretty basic hotel but it definitely has it's charm. It's old...and feels like it. So if you're looking for a luxurious room with all the modern amenities....look elsewhere. However, if you want to feel like you've traveled back in time, this is actually kind of a neat place. Now I don't mean that you have to use... More

This hotel is in the best location for the old bridge and the view from our room was superb but that is the only good point about it. The room was probably the most basic we have stayed in for a long time and the bed was atrocious, looked like two straw filled mattresses and felt about the same. There... More

Stayed in this hotel for a night in December 2014; the hotel is perfectly located to not only explore Heidelberg but also to soak in the charm of the old city. The 'modern' amenities such as a lift are not present but who wants to spoil the experience of an authentic medieval building with such intrusions!! The rooms are perfectly... More

This hotel is right in the middle of the old town Heidelberg - and as such is a good location for exploring the rest of the city. However, the rooms lack temperature control and are staggeringly hot. Opening a window doesn't resolve sleep issues as the streets are very noisy outside. The staff were moderately served their purpose but were... More

Very well located, just off the pedestrian bridge, this Hotel offers everything with out glitze. The rooms are large and clean yet spartan in decor. Just above the restaurant of the same name I can not say enough about the location. Parking is public like many Hotels in Heidelberg. Draw-back; no elevator. Service is friendly and helpful.
