“I liked it very much!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Our drive from the Netherlands to Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy was an occasion to stop in Heidelberg and visit this old city and the Christmas markets.
The hotel was very central, 1 minute walk from Hauptstrasse, but enough away to be quiet for sleeping.
The suite was very large with a separate room for our son. Beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was very good.
Unfortunately the restaurant was closed.
Although we stayed here only one night, we are satisfied with this hotel and we strongly recommend it!

We thought this place was one of our best hotel stays in Europe. The hotel is quiet but in a great location just off Hauptstraße in the old town, and really nicely appointed with good beds and bathroom. All feels fresh, very clean and well maintained.
The breakfast was marvellous, staff friendly and efficient, and the price we paid for an inside room (20) was a bargain for Heidelberg. We would recommend it to anyone coming here.

This hotel is located in a quiet side street not far from the river and within 50 metres of the main pedestrian hub where shops and restaurants are located, as well as being close to the city’s attractions.

We arrived by car, however, found the hotel a little difficult to find, as the GPS led to a one way street, whilst at the other end of the street is a pedestrian area. In the end, we drove up the street (which fortunately has minimal traffic) the wrong way to access the hotel. If arriving by car, it may be beneficial to obtain instructions from reception prior to arrival on how best to reach the hotel, as it was noticed several other reviews mentioned they also encountered a similar problem.

On arriving at the hotel, we were fortunate in being able to secure a parking spot (cost 10 euros per night), with about 8 parking bays being available on a “first come” basis, as it is not possible to make a parking reservation.

Our double room and bathroom was an adequate size, air-conditioned, very quiet, clean and adequately furnished with a comfortable bed, whilst the free Wi-Fi worked without any problems. The room being on the first floor was accessible by lift, although it should be noted stairs are a necessity for some rooms.

Whilst we did not dine in the restaurant, we did note it was heavily patronised and based on TripAdvisor reviews, rates quite highly.

Breakfast (which is available until 11am) was superb, with a vast choice of food on offer including cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit, salmon, assortment of cold meats, cheeses, breads; whilst eggs are cooked to the guest’s requirements.

Service provide by all staff during our stay friendly and extremely good.

In conclusion, we could not fault any aspect of our stay, with the central location being the major plus and have no hesitation in recommending Backmulde Gasthaus Hotel, which we felt also represented good value for money.

We stayed two nights there and we liked so much.The room was spacious and the bed very comfortable. Well located we could go to many restaurants nearby. There is a restaurant and parking. The breakfast was nice too. Good option!

I originally found this property on karenbrown.com. The hotel is about a twenty-minute walk from the Aldstadt train station, or a ten-minute walk from Bismarckplatz, or a two-minute walk from the Universitatplatz, which are short bus rides from the main train station. It is just off the main street of the old town.

The staff members were all friendly and helpful. There is an elevator, but there may still be a few steps to negotiate. Our room was quite large, as was the bathroom. It was very quiet; we could have been the only guests, although we saw at breakfast that this was not so.

The breakfasts were very good, and each day, we were asked if we would like eggs beside the usual bread, cheese, and meat.

The hotel is very conveniently situated for exploring the old town.

The only negative comment we can make is that internet access was poor for us. We could not get logged in. We were told that they have trouble with Apple products, but I cannot explain why that would be.

Overall, we would highly recommend this hotel for anyone wishing to visit Heidelberg.

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.
