This hotel is almost directly at the square in the center of Heidelberg. The hotel is small and clean, but not among the newest hotels. Good breakfast, low prices for a family room. Especially considering the central placement. You have to use public parking since there is no parking at the hotel.

This is one of the best small hotels that I have ever stay. It is very clean, the staff is very friendly and the rooms are very confortable. In the front desk they made me a list of places that I could have a meal, including an indication of a university students most frequented bar of the town. It is...

I stood there during a short visit in Heidelberg. The hotel is in a very attractive location close to the tram to the castle. The people at the reception were absolutely friendly. The room (room 2) was relatively quit and nice. Overall the hotel floors look a little bit used. Also one can hear water flowing when other people take...

This hotel is located in the old town, at walking distance from the Castle and the major attractions of the city. Thus, it is in a top location. It must have been originally an old mansion. The rooms are very large, which is one of the best things of the venue. The other is that the receptionists are very kind...

I cannot say enough about how much we loved staying at here ! Our room was on the top floor, no elevator, but once we got up there and saw the view we didn't care ! The view just took our breath away ! Our room was large compared to other European hotels and the bathroom was a nice size....

I stayed here for three nights in June and I absolutely loved it! The people working at the front desk always greeted me with a smile and "hello" and were extremely helpful during my stay. The room was extremely clean, quiet, and near to all the major sites. Breakfast is included but it's not anything too fancy. I usually ate...

Great location and nice staff BUT..... You cannot sleep in this small hotel until 3 or 4 AM due the nightclub that operates under the hotel, (the hotel's basement). The noise form the music and drunk Germans hanging out, pretty much all night, make sleep an impossibility. Don't stay here!

This hotel is located right off the market square and convenient to everything in town. The hotel is old, but charming. Our room was clean and comfortable, and it had a wonderful shower. The bed was quite comfortable. The view out our window was identical to one of the personal pictures shown above, with quaint houses and mountains. There isn't...

Spending three or four times a year one night in Heidelberg, I am well acquainted with this small hotel (as with others hotels of the same owner, "Hotel am Schloss" and Hotel "Perkeo"). The hotel is located midst of the old part of Heidelberg. The building, certainly not designed to become one day a hotel, has a relatively small surface...

Older hotel but very comfortable. Our room sloped so we ended up sleep with our heads where our feet would have been on the bed! Worked great! Our girls were on a sofabed they found confortable. From the reviews I read I knew the location (in the main square) would be noisy so I asked if they had a fan...
