My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Goldener Engel on a snowy Saturday and Sunday in this picturesque village about an hour's drive from the Frankfurt airport. As for location, you can't get better than a room overlooking the main pedestrian area of the old market. The room was spacious by European standards and though the structure retains its original old-world look, the interior rooms are modern and simply, but tastefully decorated. The bathroom is the typical, small but efficient room with ample shelfs for toiletries, nice thick towels, (no wash cloths as is usual), and a shower cabin. Bed was comfy and the thick down comforters felt good. The host and hostess were friendly and helpful. This charming little hotel actually includes a small restaurant which was unfortunately closed for a private party Saturday night and normally closed on Sunday night which was disappointing as the menu of German specialties and the associated smells coming from the kitchen lead me believe that it may be one of the best restaurants in town. The breakfast was the standard German fare, which my wife and I both liked (German breakfasts are great!). We had a car and there is a small parking courtyard behind the hotel which is locked from about 4:00 pm in the evening, but there is ample parking about two short blocks from the hotel if you arrive afterwards. If driving, Heppenheim is quite easy to reach via the autobahn. We used it as a base to go to the Bad Homburg and Budingen Christmas markets. Heppenheim was beautiful in the snow and I'm quite sure it would be stunning in the more temperate seasons as well. Lots of restaurants in the area. We'd welcome the opportunity to return to Heppenheim and this lovely hotel.
