Excellent facilities. Quite close to the main station and the neighbourhood is nice too. Spacious and adequately furnished. Good heating. The staff is friendly and helpful. No breakfast, though. In order to find food, you would need to go to the train station. Around 30 mins walk to downtown Heidelberg from here.

I was already here twice. Two weeks every time. First room I god was quite nice. Bathtub, nice spa-like lights, only really next to the street, so a little noisy. The internet was acceptable and I liked that I you had all you needed even for cooking. Second time I got a shower which was malfunctioning. So I got a... More

Although we booked an apartment with a compact kitchen, six months in advance, when we checked-in we were told the hotel was completely full and we received a simple room with a mini fridge and an electric kettle only. The bedding was quite uncomfortable, it was not cotton. It was a toweling sheet, which hurt the skin.

The concept of the Boarding House is popular in Heidelberg. I've never stayed in a studio room like this anywhere else and it defies belief that it can work, but it does somehow. This set up is not for somebody who likes to see other people or wants the services of a receptionist. The guest, having checked in and been... More

When we are here in Heidelberg Germany. We use to stay here as its near to the city and public transport. The Room is complete with a clean toilet. Wifi is also fast and free. Nice Place. Complete Peaceful and secure. It's more than a Boarding House.

My wife ended up booking a 2 month stay with Boardinghouse Heidelberg for a business trip with me traveling along and working remotely from there. Much more than a hotel, the apartments in the boarding house feel much more like your own living accommodations for any extended stay. The rooms have large wardrobes, a good size bathroom, and a small... More

I booked a room for a week for my mother and a friend of hers who were visiting. The room was on the first floor of a building different from the one where the reception was (forgot the street number). It was big enough, very clean and nicely furnished with plenty of wardrobe and shelf space for both of the... More

We stayed here for a week. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed during our stay -except the wifi coverage, which was quite poor. The hotel is situated in the downtown, so you can quickly reach most of the famous places in Heidelberg. This also means there was quite some traffic on the street next to the... More

Slightly odd setup in that the hotel is spread over several houses. Rooms ok and spacious, beds ok, but pillows not very comfortable (like most continental hotels). Very small desk. Television on wall with BBC etc, but did not use so cannot comment on reception etc. Nice shower, but flooded bathroom as curtain insufficient. Little kitchenette with fridge makes this... More
