Reviewed May 31, 2010

Stayed here in May of 2010 with my sisters. We arrived late in the evening to Heidelberg and were directed to this hotel. The young man at the front desk was very friendly and kind. Granted, the spiral steps up to our room were a bit daunting, but that's Europe. Our room had 3 beds, a clean, bright bathroom with a shower and hairdryer, and a great view of the town square.

Things got a bit noisy outside that night. There were revelers up until nearly 3 in the morning. We later found out the following day was a holiday, so people were partying it up. I would hope this was just a fluke and not an every-night experience. The young lady at the front desk the following morning was most helpful with my lost luggage debacle and spoke to the airlines for me. Breakfast was wonderful.

The view was great. The room was clean. The staff was helpful, kind and spoke perfect English. The location was perfect for those wanting to explore the old town. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelilng to Heidelberg.

Its small, but definitely a worthy, and cheap hotel. Rooms are about 90 euros, there's WiFi available hotel wide for an additional 5 euros/24hours, and the hotel staff are very friendly.

Breakfast is excellent (included), and they'll accommodate you with power boards, and busy discussion at the dining area, if required.

Rooms aren't anything to shout about. They're small, but by European standards, pretty standard for a hotel like this. My room had a view of the Heidelberg Castle, which is just amazing. Beds are small, and beware of the fact that you might bump your head when getting up. Its triangular shaped, like there was a staircase above your head.

Staircases. Beware, heavy luggage. Its spiral, and there are no elevators, so lugging luggage up and down is required.

Overall, liked the hotel, even with their minor quirks. The friendly staff made it all worthwhile.

I stayed here one night during the World Cup. The hotel itself is older and I would say average but very clean. My room was very small and older with 1 twin bed. However, the window faced the hills and it was a great view. The location is outstanding--you walk out the door and are basically a few steps away from the town square. I would not hesitate to stay here again. If you are looking for a modern roomy hotel, this would not be good. If you don't mind an older hotel with older rooms and a tiny bathroom but great location, you will like this place. It felt more like a cabin than a hotel to me. The location trumps everything though.

I was travelling as a solo female in Heidelberg in February 2006. This hotel has a great location, at the marketplace square. It is a stone's throw away from the philosopher's bridge. I felt very safe during my stay in Heidelberg.

The hotel is quiet and very comfortable. My room was a small single room, but had all that I needed. The hotel staff speak English, and provided a cold buffet breakfast in the morning.

Although this wasn't tourist season, there were many people who stayed at the hotel. Guests included Germans on business and leisure trips, as well as guests such as myself from Canada and the United States.

I was happy with this hotel and would stay there again.
