Had been to official work to Germany and had stayed in this property for two weeks. During the first week the building and the rooms were pretty new and well maintained (i.e No. 24 building with the reception). They provide a water bottle only for first day of arrival and this building has a lift. During my second week's stay... More

We had a nice room about two buildings down from the office. We were provided a free breakfast for the two days we were there, which is not normal for this hotel. The staff was pleasant and the access to transportation was terrific. Our rooms were very clean, with modern bathrooms; ours had a small balcony with a sitting area.

For business purposes I am travelling to Heidelberg quite often from Berlin. I stayed a few times now in the Boardinghouse. The hotel has a few building in total around the main building in the Rohrbacher straße which means, when you have checked in, big chances that you will have to cross the street and walk a minute or 2...

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
