Goldener Falke was our favorite hotel during our ten day trip to Germany in the Fall of 2008. The staff was so friendly and helpful, they took the time to answer all of our questions and offered suggestions. We rented a car, and they allowed us to pull up right to the front of the hotel (in a non-car zone) and unload our bags. We didn't notice too much noise at night with crowds, as I have read in others' reviews. The location was perfect - we had a BEAUTIFUL view of the cathedral from our windows from the front, and another view of the castle from the side. Can't get better than that - cathedral on one side, castle on the other! They have an elevator, which was a plus. The only thing I didn't like was that one of the desk clerks smoked at the check in desk. I definitely recommend this hotel, it was within walking distance of everything we wanted to see and do in Heidelberg. BTW - while in Heidelberg, eat at Vetter's Pub, down one of the side streets near the cathedral. I had the BEST Jagerschnitzel in the world, and it's a non-smoking restaurant/bar!! Great ambience.

We only stayed one night (Christmas 2008) but were very impressed with the hotel and our room. We stayed in the loft at the top of the hotel and it was very roomy and clean. The elevator doesn't go all the way up the loft so after you get off the elevator you have to go up one flight of steps, then enter the loft entrance door and finally go up one more flight of steps to get to the loft itself.

The loft had a very nice sized living room with a sofa and several chairs. I'm not a fashion person but I'd describe the furniture as Ikea like with regards to the colors and uniqueness (at least for hotels). The bedroom was decent sized and you could see the castle from the window.

The hotel is very convenient to the castle (walking distance and we walked all the way to it, the train wasn't running on Christmas day) and all of the shops and restaurants. We had no noise issues but since it was Christmas day about 75% or more of the shops were closed and most people were with families although there still were a number of people walking around the castle. The family running the hotel were very nice and helped us schedule a taxi pickup to go to the train station the next morning (we were on our way back to Frankfurt for our flight back to the U.S.).

I definitely wished we had more time to stay and enjoy the hotel and Heidelberg. We didn't have any meals at the hotel so I can't comment on the food. If you are going to arrive at a very late or very early time of day make sure you notify the hotel ahead of time (this is true of most hotels). There was a gentlemen the next morning waiting in the cold when we left early for our trip back home.

This hotel is perfectly located in the old town and walking distance to everything. It is very clean and beds are comfortable. The owners are very nice and helpful. Bathroom was clean but tiny. The only bad point was that it is right in the main square of the town and was super noisy at night. So noisy we were unable to sleep due to late night partiers in the square below followed by early morning setting up of a farmers market. I would recommend the hotel highly but make sure you bring good earplugs for sleeping!

We stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks and we felt really welcome. We went with our 2 small kids and the owners gave us a huge and comfortable room. We were treated as if we were part of their family. They even bought a new and lovely bed sheet for the baby crib, and a new and cute high chair for the restaurant. Breakfast was great, there was fresh fruit, yogurt, juice, delicious bread of many types, excellent coffee. The details (like the famous and wonderful German napkins, candles on every table, decoration and good taste) were impressive. We had dinner there once too and the food and service were also great. We have stayed in many hotels in Europe, Brazil and in the US and have no doubt that this was the time we were most pleased and amazed. If we come back to this magical and incredible city called Heidelberg, we'll stay at Goldener Falke again.

Great location - right on the Marktplatz and a 2 minute walk to the bus stop (bus 33 to the Hauptbahnhof) and the funicular (Bergbahn). Room was decent size. Breakfast was average/standard. Staff friendly and helpful. Only minor complaint is that due to the hardwood floors there is no noise-absorption and so you can hear people's footsteps and loud conversations in the hallways.

Buy the Heildelberg card to get admission to many of the city's sites/museums. The card no longer includes use of public transportation so you have to buy bus tickets/passes separately.

Heidelberg is a beautiful city and in October the weather was fabulous - cool, crisp air with blue skies - perfect for walking/hiking. Heidelberg has any type of restaurant you could imagine because it is a university town.
