Best location. Situated on corner right adjacent to the famous old bridge. Unique thing is reception on first floor. Very friendly staff. Smooth check in and check out. Very basic room but bed not very comfortable and noisy as the place is normally crowded because of its touristic value. Clean bathroom. And while you are there, enjoy their restaurant.

Spent 3 nights here from 13 to 16 November. Hotel was very accommodating as weren't able to check in till almost 11pm. Our keys were left for us in the hotel next door with no problems. The hotel is ideally located next to the bridge in the old town and is a great base for exploring old Heidelberg. The room... More

This hotel is ideally located in the old town at one end of the main street right near the river and a short stroll away from the funicular which takes you up to the castle. My room was quite quaintly furnished, very clean. The breakfast was simple (only type of egg offered was boiled) but it's a table service (not... More

We did NOT stay at this hotel, but did eat at the hotel restaurant before taking a stroll over The Old Bridge crossing the Neckar River. I had the beef with spätzle in sauce, mouth watering delicious. My husband had the bratwurst with kraut and mashed potatoes, scrumptious---portions are generous, food and service were excellent as was the wine! We... More

Spent a night in room 12 on September 1 and had a very nice visit. Not much room at reception but other reviews had pointed that out so we had prepared with each couple bringing only a smallish bag to lug up the stairs. Pleasantly surprised to find a fan in the room to help with the unnatural heat. Location... More

Spent a night at this lovely spot for one night. My husband and I went knowing that it was more of an experience rather than modern amenities. It's located in a great location right by the old bridge and the main market. I read a couple other reviews before booking and will agree that since there is no AC the... More

This historic old hotel is very close to all the sights Heidelberg has to offer. You will find yourself in the center of a very charming small town, and the Neckar /river with the old bridge is right across from the hotel.Do not expect to park close to the hotel! You as well as anybody who picks his accommodation in... More

Just besides the old bridge and in the middle of the old city, this hotel offers a good service, in modest rooms. During the night maybe you can have problems with a little bit of noise due the bars in the street. If you are by car, is not so easy to reach the next public parking, but not impossible!!

We have stayed in this hotel twice now, in 2011 and again in 2013. It is old school, old style and really lovely. We stayed in the mark Twain Room if I recall correctly. The floor slopes and when you open the wardrobe the door stays open because of the slope. But the building is 300 years old or so... More

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.
