The restaurant was amazing. The staff was very sweet and accommodating. We were traveling with my one year old, so things did get complicated. It was little tricky getting to by car, but the location is perfect and wouldn't have changed it. This was one of my favorite cities in Germany.

We arrived late. Kitchen was closing. Efficient Antje still got us checked in and fed. My husband had strained his back day before so Sebastian found us a therapist. The food was really top notch and our daughter felt like a fairy princess in her loft with views of castle and Neckar. As we left the cleaning lady ran after... More

My trip to Germany last week was my first time out of the country, and per recommendation of numerous co workers based in Heidelberg, a few co workers and I stayed in this hotel. This hotel blew expectations out of the water. I had a view of the bridge and the water, and I would just wake up in the... More

Stay: 2 nights (Fri/Sat) in June 2014. Staff: English-speaking. Friendly. Room: Double-of-two-singles bed, on 1st floor. Noisy for sleep quality. Needed earplugs. Walls are thin as others have noted, and curtains don’t block out the light very well (isn’t that the whole idea of curtains – to block out light?). Small desk with ample power-points and chair. Pleasing, modern feel.... More

Each year I lead a group trip of 12-15 students and adults from the Chicago area through Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Heidleberg is always our last stop on this trip and we usually stay in a different hotel in the area. Since it was already booked we deceided to try the Alten Bruke as it was also in the old... More

Centrally located just by the Bridge, very well renovated. You walk in a nice little courtyard with the warm tidy and typical atmosphere of the area, then up to the rooms you will be surprised by the renovation, modern and still warm. We were upgraded to two suites MS2, a duplex room, and S4, a spacious attic room, windows on... More

We unfortunately only stayed one night at the Zur Alten Brucke making our way back to the UK from Milan. Having lived in Heidelberg many years ago it was lovely to see the old city again. The hotel is situated directly opposite the old bridge entrance, hotel signs are a bit small and we had to drive around twice before... More

Great location, very good breakfast, a bit expensive. Parking is a ten minute walk away. Overall, a good value. Elevator was convenient to the front door. Friendly staff. Really good location for restaurants and seeing the old town.

This hotel seems to be surviving on location alone. Ridiculously overpriced for what you get, rooms are small and walls are thin. Simple breakfast, nothing special. Staff uninterested in accommodating guest's requests (or even pretending to try). Was fine for our one night stay, but not again.

Positives: My room was very clean, the interior court of the hotel was very cosy and nicely decorated, the breakfast was good and personnel friendly. The location is good if you want to visit the city. Negatives: prices are high for this type of establishment (3 stars = 139, 25 €/night single room). If you are difficult to sleep and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Best situatedyou find our charming hotel directly at the old bridge in the center of the romantic od town of heidelberg. In a few minutes you can walk to the castle, the university, the bridge and the world famous "Philosopenweg" from where you have an outstanding view over the old town.We have 10 double- and 2 singlerooms as well as 4 suites, partly with wonderful view on the river and the bridge, the old town and the castle. Our breakfast buffet expect you in our cosy restaurant " Wirtshaus zum Nepomuk" which is also very charming in the evening. We serve excellent regional cuisine. When the weather is fine, we also serve breakfast in our romantic courtyard before you walk around the city.We can't promise quiet rooms as we are in town. There's a churchbell ringing, birds are singing, people are talking in the courtyard or the terrace an as well we are a wellknown restaurant, we sometimes have weddings or birthdayparties. But we try our best to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Hope to see you soon. ... more   less
