      If there's a better location for tourists in Heidleberg someone will need to tell me where it is. The hotel is right next to the Old Bridge and the 35 bus stops right out front. We arrived early and the staff held our luggage till our room was ready. We returned later and the bags were in the room. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Internet good. My wife loved the towel warmer. Would definitely stay here again.

      We stayed here on Christmas night and were delighted to find a Christmas basket in our room when we checked in. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the hotel is clean, quiet and comfortable, and the location cannot get any better!

      Tolles Hotel in toller Lage

      from

      Ich hatte nicht gebucht, und kam Mitte August 2005 um 22 Uhr für eine Nacht hierher. Unsere Unterkunft für unsere vierköpfige Familie bestand aus einem großen Viererzimmer mit zwei zusammengestellten Einzelbetten und einem Doppelbett mit Dusche für 135 Euro pro Nacht. Wir erhielten eine Preisreduzierung, weil wir so spät angekommen waren; Frühstück war nicht im Preis inbegriffen, sondern musste zusätzlich bezahlt werden. Wir entschieden uns, in einer guten Bäckerei mit Café zu frühstücken, die an einem Platz einen Straßenblock entfernt war. Die Fotos von den Zimmern werden ihnen nicht ganz gerecht, das Doppelbett auf dem Foto war in einer Nische, und das angrenzende Zimmer mit den zusammengestellten Einzelbetten war viel größer. Das Zimmer war sehr komfortabel. Das Hotel ist ca. 200 Jahre alt, aber sehr schön. Unser Zimmer war mit allem modernen Komfort ausgestattet wie TV, Telefon, und auch ein Fahrstuhl stand zur Verfügung.

      Das Hotel ist sehr schön und liegt in der Altstadt direkt am Fluss. Man ist nur einen Straßenblock von dem historischen Platz und der Hauptstraße entfernt, die voller schöner Geschäfte ist. Das Hotel hat ein Arrangement mit einem Parkhaus, von wo man die Seilbahn zum Schloss nehmen kann. Das Parkhaus ist ca. 5 Straßenblöcke entfernt und kostet 8 Euro pro Tag, die man über das Hotel zahlt.

      Das Hotelpersonal war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir können dieses Hotel bedenkenlos weiterempfehlen.

      100% NOT a 1* hotel as per Tripadvisor rating!!! A 3* at least!

      from

      We arrived in Heidelberg in the pouring rain, decided that we liked what we could see through the constant rain and went into a internet cafe and found a deal for this hotel for 2 nights (Monday and Tuesday). Five minutes after booking through priceline, we walked into the hotel lobby, expecting to be told that the room was not ready yet. The lady on reception confirmed that she had received fax booking just that moment and we were given room key straight away. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Lobby very nice and not shabby.

      The room was a reasonable size on the 2nd floor, no bath in the en-suite, just a shower. Room and bathroom was very very clean. Beds comfortable. We were on the side of the hotel with a view of an Irish Bar and a glimpse of the river. We were worried about noise at night, being opposite a bar however we did not hear a thing - however we had the windows closed due to the constant rain!

      Breakfast was 11€ each extra and in our opinion, worth it. Lots of choice, from boiled eggs, sausage and bacon to usual continental selections.

      No hotel car parking as the hotel is right on the front of the river, however you can park in a multi-storey a few streets away for 8€ a day. There is space in front of the hotel to park up to load/unload the car. Location is great - not right on top of the town, but only a few minutes away. The current Tripadvisor hotel rating for this hotel is a 1* which initially put us off, but after checking a few other websites decided to book anyway - we're glad we did. At least a 3* hotel, in a great town location.

      Nice hotel, but beware of first floor rooms during the summer...

      from

      Our family of three stayed at the Hollander Hof during the World Cup in June. The good: Prime location at the Alte Bridge, very friendly and professional staff, room was large even by American standards, room was clean, bathroom was modern, clean and well done (no "yuck" factor at all), small fridge and mini bar with reasonably priced items. There is a small store right next door, so you could get water, soda, etc and keep it in the fridge. Hotel also has wi-fi (2.50 Euro per hour). Breakfast was included in our package and was excellent in quality and choices. Cold cereals, fruits, cheeses, eggs, sausages, and fantastic fresh breads.  Great coffee - really got you going in the morning. The room did have safe.

      Now for the not so good. It was summer, a bit warm, and there was no A/C (there was a small table fan). Not having A/C isn't the end of the world, but when you are in the room (124) that overlooks the outdoor tables of the hotel's restaurant - with World Cup games being shown nightly - it would have been a nice option not to have open windows. (We have nothing against soccer - we were there for the WC!) Also, the road running in front of the hotel is cobblestone, so there was road noise. And when the delivery trucks started rumbling through around 5 am, it was noisy enough to wake you. To me the lobby seemed a bit on the worn side, although the furnishings might be considered "vintage" or antique I guess. The room was much more polished.

      We would stay here again, but not during the summer.

      Great location, good room for family with young kids

      from

      We stayed at the Hollander Hof for 3 nights. We booked a quad room for our family (2 adults, 2 young teens). We arrived about 9:30 am and were expecting to store our luggage and walk around and have lunch until our room was ready. So, we were quite surprised to find that our room was ready upon our arrival. Great help to weary (and sick) travellers!

      The room was furnished with 2 queen sized beds. One had obviously been put in to make it a quad, but the room was easily large enough to handle it - especially for $145 a night. However, with 2 teens and 2 adults - one bath was tough. This room would be great for a family with young kids.

      We did not eat breakfast at the hotel. At 11 euros per person - I thought that was high, especially since my husband only has coffee. Instead, we walked a few blocks to the Starbucks and fed the 4 of us for about 13 euros.

      We had room 123 - just opposite the breakfast room on the 1st floor (1 above ground level), but we were never bothered with noise from early risers. However, there was noise into the night from some roudy party-ers and in the early morning from the traffic on the cobblestone street in front of the hotel. But it didn't wake my kids - so I didn't worry about it too much.

      The location of this hotel is great - right on the river (we had a beautiful view) and just 2 blocks from the main square and the main shopping street. There are plenty of restaurants around and lots of great shopping.

      I am planning a "ladies trip" for next November and will try to talk the others into staying here.

      Great hotel in great location

      from

      I had no reservaion and arrived at 10pm for one night in mid August 2005. Our accomodations for our family of four was one large quad room with two twins and one double bed with shower for 135 euro ($167) per night. We got a price break because of late arrival which did not include a breakfast which was available for an extra charge. We opted to get breakfast at very good pastry/coffee shop one block away on square. The pictures of rooms do not do them justice, the double bed shown was in an alcove, adjoining room with twins was much bigger. The room was very comfortable. The hotel is about 200 years old but very nice. Our room had modern conviences such as TV, phone, with an elevator available.

      The hotel is very nice and located in old town directly on river. You are just a block away from historic square and main street crowded with lovely shops. The hotel has a deal with a parking garage where you can catch the funacular to castle. The parking garage is located about 5 blocks away and cost 8 euro a day payable through hotel.

      The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

      Fabulous Hotel and Location

      from

      This hotel is a superb property located adjacent to the bridge and everything else. The rooms are as spacious as they get in Heidelberg, modern, and very clean. Again, the location can't be beat, near everything!...Inclusive breakfast was well above standard, and dining in and around the hotel was fantastic. I will be staying here again in August of 05, just an incredible place...

      Cheers,

      Great hotel

      from

      Stayed at this hotel in February 2005. The location was superb, right on the alte bridge and 5 minutes walk to the church and main shopping strip. The staff were also friendly and helpful. The room was clean and very large, with comfortable bedding. The bathroom was clean with a superb shower! Overall, this hotel comes very highly recommended.

      Great Old Town Location

      from

      We had a most enjoyable 2 nights stay in June 2004. This hotel is located right next to the Old Bridge and river in the heart of old Heidelberg. Literally a 1-2 minute walk to churches, restaurants, bars and all the great old buildings.

      The service and staff were excellent. Ask for room 124 which is large and has 3 big windows overlooking the Old Bridge and Neckar River.

      (Quad rate 6/04 was 172 EUR). I would definitely stay there again.

      The famous castle is worth the long climb and is fascinating day or evening. The Philosophers Walk across the Bridge (right outside our hotel) provides a panoramic view back over the city, river and castle.

      Fantastic Service and Location

      from

      I was a student in Heidelberg and know this city extremely well. Business and pleasure have brought me back to the city of my youth many, many times. I have stayed in a number of hotels in Heidelberg but keep coming back to this one. What more can I say but the service is truly outstanding. The multilingual staff goes out of their way to insure your stay in Heidelberg whether for business or pleasure is a happy one.

      The rooms are clean and simply furnished. The view of the Neckar river and the Old Bridge is unparalleled. It is an easy walk to most of the famous sights and streets of old Heidelberg.

      The noise from outside can be a bit too much during the summer months but that is the price you pay for a location that is central to nearly everything. Parking is at a public facility a 5 minute walk away, not too bad for an city 808 years old and not built for cars.

      When I walk in the door after an absense of more than a year, I am greeted warmly like an old friend returning home for a visit. Usually my favorite room is arranged for me well in advance with a nice plate of fruit. I am greeted by name as well.

      There are fancier hotels in town, with air conditioning, larger rooms, and on site parking but none of them has the friendliness, charm and service as the Holländer Hof Hotel. I highly recommend it.

      We started the day with a boat tour up the Neckar River to Neckarsteinach where there are four castles over-looking the river and town (by the way have I said how much I love boat tours). This was supposed to be 'a three hour tour... a three hour tour.' I started getting a little concerned when I heard the first mate being called Gilligan, but I …

Since it was a travel day I was not expecting there to be too much to write about. But we are the Johnsons and where we go strange things happen. We started out at the Ghent St Pieters station with a goal to catch the 9:04 train to …

      Heidelberg is one of Eurpose's top tourist locations and it doesn't take long to see why.

      Situated in the mountain foothills as the Neckar River flows toward the Rhine, Heidelberg has been a university town since 1386 and has a decidedly youthful population.

      ... We will have to come back and check it out when its open.

      The Weihnachtsmarkt started at the cathedral and stretched through the town on one side of the street. That meant that the whole place was packed and it was hard walking around all of the stores without bumping into people. Most people were there to see the fireworks from the Altpörtel, which was a cascade of golden fire rain. We had some nice roast ...
