Reviewed December 21, 2012

Stayed two nights here on business. Weirdly situated on the 7th floor of a multi-storey car park/funicular station. Accessed by the same lift as the carpark, this is more of a guest-house than a hotel, and I think some people would be put off by the entrance to the hotel via this small elevator. Receptionist was friendly and helpful, breakfast was fine, and WiFi €5 per night. The room was clean and comfortable, if a little small and quite dated in style - 60s/70s decor with a fresh lick of paint here and there. Nicely located just off the old town squares and University area, although quite a long walk from Bismarckplatz. Plenty of shops and restaurants in the vicinity. Go to the ground floor and take the funicular up to the Schloss. Some noise from the elevator early in the morning as the first cars arrive at the car park.

Location was fab, hotel was very comfortable, breakfast surprisingly good, views of snow-topped roofs were magical and in all was excellent value for money though the overall look of the place was quite dated and the room was smaller than I expected. Staff were helpful and efficient and, in the main, friendly.

This hotel has a great location to walk around the sites in Heidelberg, including the castle. It sits right below the castle, but it is 300+ steps to walk up to it! You can also take the funicular, which is in the same building as the hotel. The hotel is at the top of a car park and the funicular, so convenient if you have driven here. A bit difficult as you are looking for a hotel, but you really need to find a carpark. The hotel website explains how to get there. It met our expectations after reading other reviews on tripadvisor. It was clean, comfortable, reasonably priced and breakfast was included. Breakfast was average buffet style, with only cold items. There was some noise at night, but if you shut the windows you couldn't hear it.

Our rooms on the upper mezanine of this hotel had a beautiful view of the castle. You are well-positioned here for visiting the university, the pedestrian shopping zone, restaurants and the castle. The parking is a major convenience in this town. You can park here and walk to everything. The rooms are a bit standard with a fairly small bathroom, but everything is clean and convenient. The terrace just steps from your room is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the castle view. We were enjoying a glass of wine at 6 pm when all of the church bells began to ring across the city. It was an amazing moment. The breakfast is good, definitely enough to get you going for the day. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the castle.

We had stayed at the hotel four years previously & it is still a good choice. It takes a little finding, situated as it is on top of a car park, but a good tip is to head for the "Parking Altstadt". You park on the multi-storey & take the lift to the hotel on level 7. There is a discount on parking for hotel residents. The rooms are small but adequate for an overnight stay. The bathrooms are a little dated now, but clean. There's no airconditioning, but a fan was provided in the room. Breakfast is good. The hotel is right on the edge of the Kornmarkt & the main square and the restaurants of the old town are within a five-minute walk. In a city full of packed bars & restaurants the hotel scores by being in a peaceful area.

We took 2 rooms here (1 Double & 2 Singles). Rooms were well appointed & very clean. Beds were quite comfortable & bathrooms were excellent. The breakfast was fine, with plenty on offer & we left feeling well set up for the day.

The staff were very friendly & helpful & spoke excellent English.

There is an outdoor balcony with superb views of the Castle (Schloss) & if the weather permits, this is a lovely location to have breakfast or lunch.

Bedrooms on the town side have a shared balcony & this can be a little off-putting, as another guest can appear outside your bedroom window.

Room Tip: Rooms on the town side have a better view of the town's panorama

I have stayed at Hotel Am Sloss several times. Each time was for events downtown that I did not want to worry about drinking and driving. The latest time was last weekend for a friends' wedding. Though small, the double room suited our needs perfectly. The manager was the same all three times I have stayed there. She is pleasant and knowledgeable.
As stated in the title, the best things about this hotel are the location and views of the Schloss. It's situated at the base of the schloss and is quite the hike up to the gardens or the entrance to the Schloss. If you are not fit, do not try the stairs. There is a much easier ramp that will take you right ot the gardens. It's quite a magical place. Be sure to bring your camera.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Schloss. #17 is my favorite!
