Gasthaus Hotel Backmulde

Reviewed September 7, 2013

I would actually give it 3 ½ stars due to a couple of minor issues. First, it is a great location – one-half block from the center of Old Town. The staff was helpful and adept in English. Beware that limited parking means just that. There are 8 on-site parking places for thirty-four rooms plus staff. The nearest parking lot is about one-half mile away and costs 16 euros per day. Of course parking is not a problem if you arrive by bike or public transportation. Our room was clean, but Spartan. It included a safe and a desk, but no refrigerator or night stands. Also note that the internet charge of 1 euro per day is for each connected device. We both have smart phones and tablets, so the charge was 4 euros per day. A final note is that the hotel is tricky to get to by car. We had to ignore the one-way road sign and drive a half block the wrong way on the one way street. The typical German breakfast buffet was excellent. We would stay here again because of the location and staff.

The hotel is very well located near to very good restaurants and the continuous flow of students and tourists. You can go by by feet to many landmarks of the city. The breakfast was delicious and very complete. A nice ambient, very clean and organized.

Warm welcome, nice room, plenty of space. Shower had great pressure, always a plus. Easy to locate not so easy to get to, had to drive up a one way street only other alternative would have been to drive along the busy shopping street which seemed to be pedestrian only at the time. Good location would stay again without a doubt.

This place was easy to find (except the arrow on the the sign is hiding behind a rose bush - just keep going up the street until you find the sign sticking out of the side of the building).

The room was large with plenty of room for luggage. It had air conditioning, bless the lawd baby jesus, because it was 98 degrees when we were there. The bathroom was also large.

The breakfast was delicious and included in the price.

We bought wifi, but we couldn't ever connect to the internet. We didn't have to pay it when we checked out. They do have a computer to use in the lobby.

It is close to Old Town and close to the shopping areas.

I would stay here again!

My wife and I stayed here for a week while attending a conference at the Heidelberg convention center (the Stadhalle). We chose it based on the already excellent reviews on TripAdvisor, and were happily surprised to find it better than expected. The free breakfast buffets were incredibly good. Tons of freshly cut fruit, honestly the best pastries I've ever had, coffee, juice, tea, yogurt, etc. It was delicious! The close proximity to all the Heidelberg attractions and restaurants along Haupstraße was great too! The only con was the crummy internet connection. It worked the first day or two, but then wasn't working. When we complained to the clerk at the desk, they simply said too many people were connected. Other than that, this place was perfect!

This was a wodnerful plcae to stay and I loved it. It was surprisingly quiet considering that it is int he heart of Heidelberg. Everything was within walking distance, except work. The parking was limited, but doable. The rooms were nice, but the wi-fi was a bit slow when I got it to work. It was a great stay and Iw oudl definitely stay there again. I did not see a swimming pool or fitness center.

Room Tip: My oom overlooked a back alley and the windows could open to get a nice breeze at night.

We stayed here for one night and it was worth the stay. The double and single rooms were spacious by European standards. Other reviews stated problems with the wi-fi, but that was not the case for us. We also had dinner downstairs at the restaurant, also very good! The parking area was small but so was our rental. The proprietor allowed us to leave our car parked at the hotel after we checked out while we walked about Heidelberg that morning. I especially liked the little bags of Haribo gummy bears on the pillow instead of mints. It seemed more fitting! Breakfast was better than expected.Overall, I would stay here again without hesitation.
