“away from it all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

We spent nine nights at the Goldener Engel, using it as a base for walking the Blütenweg ("Blossom Trail") and for just being tourists. The hotel is situated in the small traffic-free marketplace, which could easily serve as a filmset. It is a timbered building, but has been completely and tastefully modernised inside - the floors are all level and not the creaking sort one would expect in a building of this age. Our room was at the side and had a bathtub - welcome after days of walking. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful, and the younger couple who run the hotel have good English. The resatauirant can also be recommended, as can several others in this small town,
A useful tip if you are reliant on public transport is to buy a day ticket ( we were four adults and made considerable savings). The ticket can be used on buses, trams and local trains over quite a wide area

Room Tip: The friends who travelled with us had a room with a view over the marketplace. Their room had a sho...

We stopped at the Goldener Engel while we walked the "Blossom Walk". The hotel is everything you would expect in a family run hotel in Germany. The rooms were fine, the breakfasts very good (German style) and the food in the evening was also very good. My wife's a vegetarian and there was a good choice for her.

You'll need a cab to get to the hotel from the station with luggage, but after that it's an easy walk, 10-15 mins.

The hoemtown of Sebastian Vettel has an amazing oldtown area with great restaurants. The central place - where the Hotel is located - is like a beergarden (in summer). The price-performance ratio is really good. Hotel is clean, staff is friendly. Parking is difficult.
Die HEimatstadt von Sebastian Vettel hat einen schönen Altstadtbereich mit netten Restaurants. Der Hauptplatz an dem das Hotel liegt hat im Sommer Biergartenatmosphäre. Preis-Leistungsverhältnis sehr gut, freundliches Personal. Parken allerdings etwas schwierig.

As part of a Rhine Valley tour we stayed in Heppenheim for two nights. Regrettably this was at another hotel that fell short of expectations. However, we did dine one evening at the Goldener Engel. The food was excellent and plentiful; top class service with a smile, and very good value. If we should ever return to Heppenheim, we'd like to experience the accommodation, hoping that it would match its kitchen.

The Goldener Engel is situated on the old market place in Heppenheim, Germany. It is in a building with traditional old German Architecture. So adorable to look at and the accommodations were wonderful. We had a great shower and tub, nice big bathroom, flat screen TV, closet, writing desk and comfortable bed. The weather was very warm so we slept with the windows open and there were no bugs. There is private parking for the guests of this hotel. The breakfast was wonderful.
There was no lift/elevator so you had to carry luggage up the stairs but it was part of the charm of this place. There was free wifi. Significant shopping is very close and there is an old castle you can see from the Market Place. We drove part way and walked part way to visit the castle. There is a bank and pharmacy also within walking distance. There is a museum and an old church just off the market place. We enjoyed staying in this charming city and will be back. I can not imagine anyone not falling in love with Heppemheim and this hotel was perfect for the experience.

Room Tip: We had a corner room and it also had a nice entry way giving more space.

The Goldener Engel is situated in the picturesque centre of Heppenheim and has a frontage onto a charming cobbled square with other restaurants and hotels. I was allocated a twin room for single occupation and it was simple,light and airy with fittings all in good condition. Room and shower room were very clean. The staff spoke English and were efficient. As I had to leave early, they kindly provided an early breakfast outside the usual serving time. The price of breakfast was included in the reasonable price.
