Villa Marstall is still an excellent boutique hotel In Altstadt Heidelberg ---- very convenient to the Hauptstrasse and the Alte Brucke area. This hotel is not very old, although it is in an old University Building. We stayed here two years ago after staying at the Crown Plaza at the opposite end of the Haupstrasse many times (for both business meetings as well as holidays).
Our "Classic Room - # 34" cost 155 Euro per night with breakfast and was more expensive than a "Superior Room"; however, the "Superior Room - #32" we had in 2010 was twice as large and was a corner room with better views. The pricing and room selection is very confusing.
The breakfast also seems to have slipped a notch from the last visit. Our daughter stayed at the Hip Hotel during the same period and that seemed to be a "better value" with a much larger room and free Breakfast at the adjoining restaurant (Guldenen Schaft) and the hotel was located right on the Hauptstrasse.
Parking Garage #8 was much more convenient to both hotels than was Parking Garage #12 where Villa Marstall offers discounted parking.More
