The location is fabulous- on Neckar river just on the Old Bridge in Old town Heidelberg. And this is where the story ends regarding good things. Rooms are small, furnishing is basic, smell in the hallways is very bad. Breakfast is basic but they charge for it like it is a real thing. Not a place I would recommend for... More

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel which could not be situated in a better, more convenient place for the old town - almost right in front of the Tor and the Old Bridge!!! When we booked, I asked for a room with a view, hoping that this may be possible. Well, we probably got one of the two... More

The hotel is near the old stone bridge and located in the nicest part of town. Book in advance so you have a room inside the old hotel, if not you will be located in one of the apartments in town. The restaurant is to be recommended

A darling little boutique hotel with views of the gate and river. I stayed with my parents in one room until we connected with my husband. There was a loft room that was pretty difficult to reach due to steep staircase. However, we made it work. The hotel offers the most charming courtyard for dining, and the location is superb!...

The location was great, the hospitality was amazing, the stuff were kind and professional. I enjoyed my 4 nights stay there. Kitchen also was great with availability of so many different types of foods. It was easy to access all over the old town from the hotel, it was like ten minutes slowly walking from there to the market square... More

We booked a room in the more modern accomodation, assuming we had a balcony with a view of the river, as insinuated in the booking.com pictures. The location is right at the old city, comfortable for that nature of tourism. You REALLY have to strech yourself for the view though. The room is comfortable and well appointed, but not nearly...

In a few minutes you can walk to the castle, the university, the bridge and the world famous "Philosopenweg" from where you have an outstanding view over the old town.We have 10 double- and 2 singlerooms as well as 4 suites, partly with wonderful view on the river and the bridge, the old town and the castle.

When the weather is fine, we also serve breakfast in our romantic courtyard before you walk around the city.We can't promise quiet rooms as we are in town. There's a churchbell ringing, birds are singing, people are talking in the courtyard or the terrace an as well we are a wellknown restaurant, we sometimes have weddings or birthdayparties. But we try our best to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Hope to see you soon. ... more   less
