Simply superb classic luxury hotel. In a nice quiet location but close to the busy central area. Old world charm but importantly has air con. Just pack a suit and tie if you want to eat in the restaurant.

I have stayed at the property a week. Upon arrival we were greeted like dignitaries. We were met at the hotel gate and our suitcases were immediately attended to. Rooms are enormous appointed with fresh white roses. The air is filled with the fragrance of the courtyard magnolias. The courtyard fountains provide a musical cascade of water and a white... More

Extraordinary, luxurious hotel with an attentive staff. Great location for exploring the old town. Room size and furnishings were very nice. Waiting to leave for our train we had an opportunity to enjoy the nicely furnished public rooms. Even for just an overnight stay it's a memorable hotel.

We had a very good stay here, in a nice, old and big room, with sofas, tables, and a comfortable bed. It lacks better shower amenities, better to bring your own. The staff was attentive and the concierge eficient.

We stayed here over the easter weekend 2016, when we were visiting a nature reserve near Speyer.

First the hotel: The location of the hotel is really good, the SPA and indoor infinity pool quiet and fabulous and the rooms are clean, elegant, inviting and stylish, without being ostentatious. I recommend requesting a room on the garden side to avoid the noise of busy Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage Street. That being said, what makes the Der Europaïsche Hof Heidelberg exceptional... More

Yes the hotel is an historic Heidelberg landmark, and the exterior and common areas are quite nice, but the rooms are not up to the photo standard. They claim each room is individually styled etc, but that means each room has different classic examples of 70's furniture, poorly painted old surfaces, or horrible bathrooms that come in 70's brown, pink...

This hotel is beautiful. The lobby, lounge, breakfast area are all beautiful done. The room was extremely clean and very comfortable. Spacious bathroom with towel heater which I love. It's centrally located, near shops and tourist attractions. Service was excellent. I could not ask for more. Love love this hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel.
