“COMFORTABLE & LOVELY VACATION HOUSE”
Reviewed October 2, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We had a very comfortable stay at Heidel-home last Sept. 20-30 (2012) I will always remember this lovely place and i would highly recommend this to travelers to Heidelberg.
The place is clean, comfortable, lovely and close to the train station, trams and bus stops.
If i were to go back to Heidelberg, i would still choose to stay at this place.
The Owner is also very accessible because he stays at the ground floor of the building.He is a nice guy & friendly.
I love the place so much that If i were to construct another house, i would most probably copy the layout of this condo.

“A Superb Rental, Great Location”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We recently spent 10 days in Apartment 3. It was large and fully equipped with absolutely everything you'll need or want during your stay.
My wife cooked dinner every night and was impressed with the kitchen size and appliances. Everything was there from cooffee filters to plastic bags for the trash.
2 large bedrooms with very cozy and comfortable beds. Large living room with tv,dvs and a small library. 2 big sofas.
Large,full bathroom.
Location couldn't have been better. Turn left at the corner of quiet Steigerweg and walk 10 minutes to the bus.tram and train station. Easy to ride and you won't get lost. Turn right at the corner and 5 minutes takes you to 2 small complete markets?
Marco, the owner was helpful in every aspect.
Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!!

“Light, airy, spacious, comfortable and modern”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

My wife and I had a fantastic week in beautiful Heidelberg, and the loft apartment at Heidel Home was the most perfect base for our trip.

There is lots of space, it's extremely well appointed, with very modern furnishings and decor.

I think it's perfect for a young couple visiting the city, but there is room for three or four people in the apartment.

It's really close to the city centre. You can walk to Bizmarckplatz in about ten minutes. Other areas of town take a bit longer, but there a buses, trams and trains very close by. (Most of the Heidelbergers seem to cycle though - I would definitely do that next time).

I can't speak highly enough of our apartment. Everything went like clockwork. If I'd have paid twice the price for the apartment, I wouldn't have been disappointed.

“Everything was just as described by the Owner”
Reviewed September 9, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We were visiting family and stayed the minimum three nights The house is in a quiet location spotlessly clean and fully equiped. We stayed in the Attic Flat up three fklights of easy stairs with landings to our own door. There were views both back and front to the mountain and over the rooftops. Up at the traffic lights on the maion road are a bakers, chemist and restaurant. On the short walk to town centre Bismarkplatz there are small supermarkets, cafes and restaurants. Nearby there are a railway station which is one stop from the main station and bus routes.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed September 3, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We were so happy with our attic apartment in Heidelberg! It was spacious, comfortable, well furnished (with cool features like exposed wood beams) and well lit. As others have noted, the floor boards can be noisy which is a worry if you are walking around in the middle of the night. The kitchen is well equipped and it was nice to be able to make our own meals sometimes. The bed is comfortable and the room gets pretty dark which is good for sleeping well. The bathroom has a great deep bath (though it takes a while to fill) - the shower would be good, too, but the lack of shower curtain made us a bit worried about making a mess!

The location is great if you are comfortable with walking a bit (about 15-20 minutes to the town center) or taking the very frequent and well-organised public transport. There are various bakeries and supermarkets close by if you want to eat at home, too.

I would definitely book another stay!

“Great apartment in a good location”
Reviewed July 23, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

Stayed on Family holiday with 2 teenage children and had a great time, good apartment and facilities in a good location. Shops and a bakery close by and the train to the town centre was very quick and handy for going out. Floorboards (not parquetry) are a little on the squeaky side in the foyer.

Thanks Marco

“Great Apartment for Families”
Reviewed July 13, 2012 for a stay in June 2012
1
person found this review helpful

My family stayed in the Heidel-Home end of June 2012. I was very pleased with the accommodations and fully recommend the property. It was the best apartment we stayed in during our 3 week trip to Europe.

Advantages
- Clean
- Large - great for a family of 5.
- Nice living room / common area separate from bedrooms
- Quiet neighboorhood, which is important when you have the windows open at night
- Nice appointments (furniture, built-ins)
- Friendly owner
- Separate bath and toilet helpful for families when getting ready in the morning
- For us, the location was ideal because we were using this as a base for day trips to other towns. The apartment is located one stop from the main station to get out and away quickly. Or, go the other direction on the train and you end up at the other end of old town Heidelberg, and can be in the heart of town in just a few minutes.


Downsides (admittedly, not very important relative to the advantages)
- Due to German internet laws, the wifi service is pay-as-you-go and does not handle multiple device log-ins. The costs were not restrictive.
- The glass recycling collector comes early in the morning one day per week. Scared the heck out us when he overturned the dumpster filled with glass
- Washer available, but pay-for-usage
