My wife and I spent three nights here at the end of April. What a delightful place! Every attempt has been made to capture a traditional German atmosphere and it works. Our room was more than adequate and spotlessly clean. Breakfast in the beautifully presented dining was a highlight. And the staff coudn't have been more pleasant and helpful. The... More

We stayed at Hackteufel for 2 nights and really enjoyed this charming little hotel. The staff were very friendly, the breakfast was great, and the rooms were comfortable and clean. You couldn't ask for a more convenient location to all the tourist sites in Old Heidelberg. It's an easy walk to the Castle, churches, Philosopher's Way, and all of the... More

LOVED my stay at this very sweet Inn! Fantastic location right in the centre of Heidelberg, just minutes walking to the bridge, the castle, and the main shopping square. Comfortable beds with a sweet old Germany decor. Our room was at the very top of the stairs with gorgeous views over the rooftop toward Heidelberg Castle. I recommend asking for... More

I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. It's cute with wooden rooms, abundant breakfast, friendly people managing the hotel, WiFi available in the rooms, possibility to have dinner in the hotel (which is also a good restaurant). It's located in the historical part of the city (ca 35 min walking from the stations), very closed to the old and... More

We celebrated our engagement by staying at the Hotel Hackteufel in beautiful Heidelberg. We chose to stay here because it is a small and intimate place located in the centre of the historic town. It has the character and charm of what I imagine a Bavarian inn to be like. Our room, possibly number 12, was an attic room. It... More

This was my 2nd visit to Heidelberg and 2nd stay here at the Hotel Hackteufel. This hotel is like a home away from home for me, the smell of good tasting German food from the restaurant, and the rooms are very friendly and comfortable. Staff, well you could not ask for anything more perfect, friendly and courteous and the staff... More

First, there are some positives about this hotel. First, the location is great for restaurants and shopping. The breakfast was good and the young woman who checked us in was very friendly. There is a big difference in room quality though. We were traveling with our daughter and son-in-law. They were given the attic room which was very large and... More

We arrived in Heidelberg late in the evening with no reservations. Luck for us, the Gasthaus Hackteufel had a room available! The staff was so friendly and accommodating. The room was absolutely wonderful and a reasonable rate. We had Room No. 8 and was on top of the building with a beautiful view! We got into the room quickly, freshened... More

I've stayed in this hotel on several occasions, and the location is perfect. Right next to the old bridge across the Necker, a two minute walk to the plaza, and perhaps ten minutes from the Schloss (castle) it really can't be beat in this area of Heidelberg. I recommend the large room on the courtyard or the modern room on... More
