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.

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
