I don't know what they were thinking when this building was allowed to be built in the old part of Heidelberg, but it is a great spot for a hotel! The location is excellent - right above the furnicular to the castle, walking distance to everything else in Heidelberg, and parking at reasonable rates in the multi-storey carpark below. The building, however, is ugly!! We booked this room on the recommendation of the Heidelberg Tourism Centre, and were not disappointed.
We stayed here for two nights with our two toddlers in a very spacious room with plenty of space for the sofa bed and a cot. The bathroom (with a bath) was also very spacious. There was also a fridge in the room (with a well-stocked minibar). The breakfast was your normal German breakfast which was enjoyed by all. There was also a bowl of fruit near reception where you could help yourself.
The nearest park was a good 15mins walk away (wonderful directions were provided by the young fellow at reception), but the kids had an amazing time once we were there. We stayed in Heidelberg for the Heidelberg Castle Illuminations - a fireworks display over the castle and river, which is held three times a year. From our hotel we were able to easily walk to the other side of the river to find a great vantage point to see the light show.
We would definitely stay here again were we ever to return to Heidelberg. The service was very friendly and very helpful, and the location and facilities were excellent.
