Crowne Plaza Heidelberg
Travel Blogs from Heidelberg
Twelve measly hours of travel is all it took for me to get to Germany. Yes, I was jetlagged as hell but the internet told me not to take a nap, just fight it and go to sleep at the normal time. I sleepwalked my way through downtown Heidelberg and this is probably why I cant find 50 pictures I took while sleep walking. Anyway, Monday was the formal …
We left Brussels this morning and headed for Germany, specifically to the Cologne to see the cathedral, and then onto to see castles during a river Rhine cruise.
It was an unusually lovely day - blue skies, sunshine (I got burnt sitting on the bus).
It was Sunday so there was little traffic on the road - and surprising no trucks …
This morning we had a wonderful breakfast in the restaurant and it was lovely to see our fellow travellers. We had to put our suitcases outside our room by 6:30am, have brekky from 6:30am and be ready to go by 7.15am. Aaaah - this coach tour business is all new to us, but we are enjoying the change. After brekky we set out on our trip, first …
Soo...I know that I have not been posting as often as I would like. Finding free internet out here is not as easy as first believed. I promise that I will post entries from Paris and Geneva soon. For now, I am currently in Heidelberg, Germany. The drive from Geneva to Heidelberg was absolutely gorgeous! Driving through the Swiss Alps was …
I attended a Prolonged Exposure Training in Heidelberg. This is used to treat PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder). Anyway, I won't tell you much about the training. The rest of the time there was good. They have a wonderful shopping area and Jim benefited the most as his birthday was closest :)
Sorry I have been bad about posting, but I' …

Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Heidelberg
I just returned from Germany and stayed one night in Heidelberg at the Crowne Plaza and was not as enchanted with it as some of the other travellers who have posted reviews. The hotel is clean and my room was adequate for me since I was travelling alone, but on the small side. One of the reasons I chose this hotel was that it was suppose to be right around the corner from the old town area, which it wasn't. It is somewhat of a walk to get to the pedestrian zone and definately not around the corner from it. Also, it was suppose to be very close to the train, which it also wasn't. You wouldn't want to walk to the train dragging your luggage behind you. The staff was pleasant, but not particulary warm or overly friendly. I didn't eat dinner at the hotel, but did have their breakfast buffet which was average. I wouldn't discourage anyone from staying here, but it just wasn't for me. There just a was a coldness about the hotel that was less than inviting.
Stayed several nights during 2003. Arrived Frankfurt airport and caught a Lufthansa bus in the terminal that dropped me at the door of the Crowne Plaza after a one hour ride. Hotel room was clean and breakfast buffet was outstanding. Heated indoor poor was top-notch.
I recently stayed at the Crowne Plaza for ten days. I would HIGHLY recommend this Hotel. The service was great and the hotel was extremely well maintained. The people were helpful and understanding. The location of the hotel itself was perfect! Right around the corner from the main shopping area and walking distance from the train and bus stops. The business center downstairs was so useful as I had to do light work during some days! The food was good however a little on the expensive side but it was worth it. I spent quite a few comfortable evenings in my room just sewing and drinking tea...with no interruptions. The walls are a bit thin but you barely notice. Not only am I going to stay here everytime I am in Heidelberg but I have recommended this hotel already to a few people! Enjoy
We picked this hotel because of it's reviews and location. We weren't really disappointed. We took the Luftansa bus/shuttle from the airport which drops you off right behind the hotel. You can buy your tickets onsite there as well as there is a Luftansa office there. We came as a family with two teen and pre-teen children. The location was good for all types of transportation and close to shopping and restaurants. We did not eat at the hotel though it looked nice.
Location is its best asset
Within a 5 minute walking distance of the Bismark Platz and Korn Market, the hotel is pretty standard overall. The business center and complimentary breakfast did not quite make up for the fact that the whirlpool was not working, our room overlooked the street where a late party was held, and the food in the dining room was surely lacking in quality and choices.
We found the staff to be professional yet cold.
We would only stay here again as a second choice.
A great choice
The previous reviews have it right. The hotel is first rate. All staff friendly and most English fluent.Rooms are small, but clean and well decorated. Bathroom excellent. I was there in March, and the heat was fine (I opened the window one night, it was a bit warm). The business office with the free Internet acccess was great, and I did not need to bring my computer. Would gladly go back.
We just spent two fabulous nights at this hotel and after a long walk up the hill to the castle we came back to a delicous supper at our hotel and we soaked away our aches and pains in the jacuzzi and sauna.
Add the free internet access and fantastic breakfast buffet and this is the best 105€ I have ever spent. I would return here anytime. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were large and super clean.
We spent 3 nights here recently, and found it to be a very pleasant hotel. The front desk staff were very helpful. My family especially enjoyed the bountiful breakfast buffet that was included in the room rate. We booked directly with the hotel over the Internet 4 months in advance and found a very low rate (120 Euros per room for 2 people).
