“Beautiful Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

I stayed here for one week on a business trip. The hotel is lovely with comfortable and well appointed rooms. The staff is friendly and fluent in English.

The hotel is conveniently located about one mile from the start of the old town pedestrian area.

I was fortunate to have a room with a beautiful view of the Neckar. I don't know what the area is like in other months, but when I was there in April it was gorgeous weather and everything was green and blooming.

A beautiful place to visit!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Neckar.

Marriott Heidelberg is located on a riverbank of the Neckar River, 1.6km/1 mile downstream the old city (Altstadt). Stayed here 3 nights (august 5 – 8) for a bargain price of 95€/night for 2 persons including American breakfast (Visa advance payment).
The room was very comfortable, 26 square meter, bathroom rather small (2.2m x 1.7m), most of the rooms have a bay window, other rooms have a balcony. Extremely good bed. Some reviewers finds the room “dated” or “tired”, I find the room “Marriott classic”. Small fridge, large flatscreen, no coffee/tea in room. Airco was not cool enough.
Breakfast buffet was great … you can take your breakfast outside with a view on the river. Good indoor pool, fitness centrum and sauna. Parking : 19€ per day, Wifi : 12.5€ per day.
Roomtip : ask for an even room number (odd room numbers brings bad luck) : all even room numbers have river view !!
How to get to the old city : go from Marriott 200m to bus/tram stop “betriebshof”. You will find a ticket vending machine (german and English version) on each bus/tram stop. Buy a single “city ticket” for 1.10€ or a ticket24 (5.30€) or a ticket24plus (9.30€ for max 5 persons). See www.vrn.de . Now you have 4 possible options : tram 21 via bahnhof to bismarckplatz, tram 22 direct to bismarckplatz, bus 35 to bismarckplatz and alte brucke, bus 32 to bismarkplatz and centrum altstadt. You have to wait maximum 5 minutes for your bus or tram and drive 5 minutes !! OR walk along the river 15 minutes to Bismarckplatz.

Everything about this hotel is perfect. Beautiful lobby, magnificent room and rich breakfast. Wifi isn't free but it had acceptable prices. If I come to Heidelberg again I'll definitely stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: Lake view is perfect you won't regret it.

The hotel is on a noisy ring road and a very ugly building, even the 'balconies'facing the river are not really balconies and you cannot sit out. If you want corporate business fine (I stayed in Durham UK in one last month) but personality and aesthetics of this place, , none, no info about heidelberg, they could have had a few displays, a few local prints in the rooms or public spaces but none we saw. 20 mins to town on a dangerous road or across the river through a nice park. Character 3/10 but for business I'd guess 8/10.

I took my family to a Germany for almost 3 weeks and Heidelberg was one of the stops. What a wonderful city, one of the best I went to.

This hotel is located slightly outside from the old town but perfect if you drive. Just 15 mins walk to the old town, 5 mins drive. They might recommend to walk, I would say drive and park right on the middle and walk, it is beautiful.

The Hotel staff is fantastic, the restaurant is overpriced (like in any other hotel), the rooms are excellent. The parking is expensive like in all Germany, and the common areas are well kept.

Above everything, I would recommend this hotel. The view of the river is wonderful and if you ask or get a room at the ends you might get a walking balcony, great for a glass of wine at the end of the day.

Room Tip: Try to get the rooms with the best view of the river and with walking balconies.

If you are used to Marriott properties, this will not dissappoint. Front desk was friendly. Beautiful jogging / walking path. Great breakfast, but pricey at 21 Euro ($30pp). Wi Fi worked but was 49 EUR for 4 days. 3rd floor room was quiet, overlooking the Nekar River, nice to see all the crew boats practicing on the river. Gerlind is ready to take care of you in the lobby bar. Free self serve cappichino/espresso in the lobby. Don't underestimate the walk to 'old town' from the hotel- a full 15 minutes. You have to know where to catch the cabs...they will take you to the old bridge for 10EUR or the Train station for 8 EUR. Not everyone speaks English, but we never had an issue with a cab driver not knowing "Marriott". Dinner establishments in the old town pretty much shut down after 10pm during the week.

Room Tip: 4th floor has been remodeled, do try for a river view, it is worth it.

We stayed at the Marriott for 2 nights. Our room was very tired, though friends said their room was recently updated. There are no tea/coffee facilities nor a mini bar. The beds were comfortable. We expected one being the Marriott Hotel. The Hotel is a long way from the old town. You can walk, but its a real LONG WAY. Reception staff were "snowed under"...only 2 working the desk, hence, when I inquired regarding a day trip from Heidelberg, they were most unhelpful. I had to demand they please help me...it only took them a phone call, but it was like I was asking them to organize me a whole holiday! The staff in the hotel bar were the opposite and quite friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Demand an updated room if you stay there. Some rooms have views of the River.
