This is the finest hotel that I've stayed in, in any country for the past 30 years. Everything we were looking for was there and several things that we didn't even think of were also there. Leather sofas, fine furnishings, masterful management all surrounded by luxury and amazing history. It didn't hurt at all that there is an amazing castle just across the river and old town is just a short walk away. We got up early one morning and walked along the river and watched the sun come up. The light here is as amazing as it is in Paris. The old houses in the neighborhood that surround this hotel are also amazing. The restaurants in this hotel were also fantastic. Another couple was eating at a table just a table or so away and they started up a conversation with us. When they found out that we had just flown all the way from Alaska they nick-named us "Alaska" and we ran into them at a couple of other locations and you could always hear "Hey Alaska!" whenever they saw us somewhere. Of every hotel that we've stayed in I would say that the Jan Brito in Bruges and the Die Hirschgasse in Heidelberg are the two hotels that are the most memorable hotels we've stayed in. We've decided that you can stay in a hotel and then forget the experience just a few days later or you can spend a little more time researching to find the absolute best hotel in the area and pay a few extra dollars and find a spectacular hotel that you'll remember forever. This is how we do it now. The venison was as amazing as the restaurant was. This is the ONLY place we will stay now when we are in Heidelberg. Mark Twain was absolutely right!
