Luckily, we wrote ahead of time to the hotel to ask if they could help us with parking and they wrote back saying that they would reserve us a spot. Parking is a problem. The hotel has only 4 parking spots around the corner in another building, we were lucky to have one. We also asked to have a room... More

This hotel is in a very pleasant residential area of the city and within a stone's throw of the major attractions. As a result, you have the authentic experience of living in the city without having to travel excessively far to the tourist attractions. The breakfast was very good and the breakfast room looked over the corner of a pretty... More

We stayed as a family in this hotel for a couple of nights and found it really good value. The room was large with ample room for the double bed and two singles. The en suite bathroom was a little small but as seems to be the case across Germany, spotless. There is free wifi throughout the hotel and parking... More

its about a 15 minute walk from the railway station in a nice quiet location. I would say its more of a guesthouse than a hotel but this is not a bad thing. The rooms are basic but very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is adequate but not great compared with other hotels on our trip. We arrived just after... More

The Hotel Krokodil, located in a quiet residential neighborhood is a 15 minute walk to the old city. It provided basic, simple and clean lodging. It's furnishings look like a college dorm, but there was ample usable work desk, wardrobe, sufficient lighting, luggage rack/space, etc. My secomd floor, double room was larger than I expected for this price and had...

We enjoyed our stay here, we asked for a first floor room and were able to manage even with some mobility problems, the staff were friendly and helpful and the room was a good size. Our room and bathroom were kept very clean (we had a six day stay). We had dinner a couple of nights in the bar downstairs... More

The location is in a nice neighborhood away from the tourist masses. It's above the restaurant (very good food) with no elevator so anyone with mobility problems should not stay here. We had a very comfortable room, very clean and nice people at the desk. The desk is not staffed at all times. When we arrived on a Sunday afternoon,... More

The Hotel Krokodil is a nice little place for your stay in Heidelberg. Nothing fancy, something of a plain Jane kind of place. The room we had was large enough for our family of three and adequately furnished. The bathroom was unusually tight, even by European standards, but certainly usable. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the train... More
