We stayed at the Hotel die Hirschgasse for two nights and it was one of the most enjoyable places we have been to. We booked a suite and were definitely not disappointed. We had a sitting room, bedroom and bath--all large and very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful and parking is right at the hotel. It is... More

Dear Voyaguer5510, Thank you for your very nice comment and top rating. We do not know which of our restaurants you visited, since we have two: the Le Gourmet - and the Mensurstube. Service is normally always on top of their toes, but depending on certain circumstances also a good team can be influenced. We regret nevertheless that you apparently... More

Hotel managed by the owners who were ready to talk about the area and give advice and explain the historical significance of the building. Easy walking distance from the Old Town and the Old Town train station and just a short step away from the famous Philosopher's Way. Lovely breakfast in rooms full of the student duelling history of Heidelberg.

Dear Chris and Joan, We always thrilled, if our guests manage to arrive by train at our "own" train station Karlstorbahnhof "Altstadt" which unveils to the arriving visitor the William Turner perspective of the castle. Such an impressive view, so dramatic and a wonderful way to reach us on the foot path across the river Neckar. Glad that you liked... More

This hotel is known for its history and its delicious food. You do need to make a reservation early though, as it does book up. The parking here is a bit of a mess and I am still not sure how they accommodate more than 5-6 cars? The hotel and service was fantastic and I would recommend the hotel for... More

We chose this hotel because much as we were looking forward to Heidelburg the more central locations looked like they had the potential to be quite noisy, even so we wanted to experience something of the town's traditional student hostelries and so Hotel Die Hirschgasse was perfect. We were working up at the castle and the walk down into town... More

Dear Poly-Olbion, What a poetical name - we like it very much and thank you for staying with us. You described a very good profile of the Hirschgasse, especially the advantage of not having to "enjoy" the noisiness of the city, which can be quite disturbing sometimes, but rather stay in our little quiet side valley so close to the...

I love Heidelberg. Finding Hirschgasse was an accident. A friend suggested we should check it out. I love history and the friend told us Hirschgasse had some 500 years of history and each room was a history lesson. We decided to try it and it was wonderful. I even ended up purchasing a set of 12 of their engraved wine... More

We were welcomed quite heartily by a very helpful young man. He helped us making several reservations and was most helpful. The walk into old town, across the bridge was just the right length and was worth every photo we took on the way! Beautiful views at all times.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The historic Hirschgasse Heidelberg, which is a listed building and over 540 years old, was the place for student fraternities and clubs to fence and celebrate - the oldest in Germany.Now 20 Laura Ashley suites offer a luxurious country house style, all in different design and layouts, which are offered in three categories such as: Junior | Deluxe | Salon. For the ones who do not like identikit chain hotels we are providing the right antidote with a private and familiar ambiance. Check our own official website for daily best rates and offers with growing rewards.Only a short scenic walk along the river Neckar across the Old Bridge (Alte Brücke) brings you into the heart of the Old Town. Retreat to our peace and quietness once the hustle and bustle of the city is too much for you. The nearness to the famous Philosopher’s walk and the holy mountain starting behind our hotel is a paradise for jogging and hiking.Two restaurants offer unique character and quality. The Mensustube with lots of historic memorabilia of the bygone studentic times serving local authentic Food. The Le Gourmet awarded with one Michelin star and 16 points in the Gault Millau accompanies with very charming French service and large wine selection onto a fine culinary expedition.An outstanding luxurious Butler’s breakfast served individually, without having to "fight" on a big buffet for the last piece of sausage, is an experience to start the day relaxed. ... more   less
