Hotel Birkenhof is situated in Eppelheim, at 5 kilometers from the historic city Heidelberg. The hotel is very nice and has a good restaurant (Stephan's restaurant). The staff is very polite and helpfull. Breakfast is great ! At 1,4 kilometers from the hotel you can take the tram to Heidelberg !!

With a good navigation system, the Birkenhof is easy to find. There is even enough parking when hotel guests must compete with event attendees. The hotel is set in the countryside amongst farms and horse stables. The residential edge of Eppelheim is nearby, but the business district. limited as it is, in a long walk further. This appears to be... More

Excellent facilities, very good dining room, good breakfast. We were visiting Heidelberg, with a car, and wanted somewhere comfortable to stay which wasn't too expensive. The Birkenhof was perfect. Fifteen mins outside Heidelberg among horse paddocks, clean, friendly staff. No lift, but we found the stairs easy. Would go back there.

We had two very quiet, comfortable rooms, though it was a challenge getting up the stairs with all our luggage (no lift). The man at the front desk was very helpful, however, and carried my heavy bag for me. My room had a balcony, but my partner had only windows. The hotel itself is quite rural and requires a car...

We stayed here 2 nights en route back to the uk from switzerland as we wanted to explore Heidelberg but didn't want to be right in the city centre. This hotel is perfectly located in a rural area just outside the village of Eppelheim. It's a 15min walk to the centre of the village where you catch the tram into... More

Birkenhof is a nice hotel with friedly owners and employees. For my taste its to far from Heidelberg that I was visiting so even with a nice big room and a comfy bed, one night was enough for me. When I looked the hotel up online I got the impression it was situated 3 kilometers from Heidelberg but it was... More

We stayed here at the end of June 2013 for one night. It was a welcome rest after a 560 km ride on our motorbike from Holland. The room was very pleasant and had a balcony and view over the front garden. The water and juice in the room was very welcome. We dined in Stephan's restaurant and the food... More
