      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Zum Ritter St. Georg Heidelberg

      Lovely Town, Great Hotel

      from

      We really enjoyed this hotel. Fantastic old building right in the middle of the old town and exceptionally welcoming and friendly staff. We were in a standard room towards the back of the building which, if unexceptional, was perfectly adquate to our needs: they have more expensive rooms if you want more luxury. We had no problem at all with noise - we heard the church bells during the day but never noticed them at night.

      The restaurant was great and one major plus was that it had a non-smoking area, which is quite rare in Germany. Book early to get a table there if, like us, you dislike having tobacco smoke blown over you while you are trying to enjoy a meal.

      We found Heidelberg a charming city and well worth a visit.

      Charming

      from

      We had a family suite-- a two story room with 3 beds upstairs and 1 double downstairs. From the upstairs window we could see the castle lit up at night. Breakfast was delicious, and I can't imagine a better location in Heidelberg. Our room (which was at the back) was not noisy at all, and I don't remember hearing the churchbells mentioned in other reviews. The staff was very helpful. If you have a car, don't try to drive to the hotel--just park at an old town parking lot and ask for directions. As budget travellers, this hotel was a big splurge for us; it was worth it.

      Great hotel -- Also quiet

      from

      The hotel was great for all the reasons others have noted. We wanted to specifically note that the noise issue others have cited we did not encounter, and we had a room on the first floor (second floor US) right over the entrance, right on the square, and my wife and I are generally pretty light sleepers. I'm not sure if they have added soundproof windows recently, but when we closed both the inner and outer windows there was basically no noise from outside, though granted, we were not there on a weekend. Overall, a nice large room, with pleasant features, a helpful staff, and a great location.

      Unique historic hotel experience

      from

      My family stayed here for two nights in May. We loved this hotel! It is very old and located across the cobbled street from the old Munster. We heard church bells on the quarter hour all night and pigeons cooing on our window sill, but the room was comfortable and clean. Watch out for the weird raised shower though as it was slippery. The breakfast buffet was fantastic, including champagne and wonderful pastries. The hotel restaurant at dinner was wonderful and the service exceptional.

      One caveat: be prepared to climb stairs, as the small ancient elevator does not reach all levels.

      Charming

      from

      charming old hotel which is well maintained with a great central location. extremely helpful staff. beautiful dining room with attemtive employees.

      not airconditioned and was hot while we were there

      Avoid rooms facing the street

      from

      We spent a couple of days in Heidelberg during July 2005 and enjoyed the location and the quaintness, although we complained about the nocturnal noise from the street where drunks sang loudly for hours. There are rooms at the back which should be better.

      The hotel is right in the thick of things in the Old Town and it's easy to walk to museums and restaurants. Church bells across the way are in working order and tested every 15 minutes round the clock.

      Staff extremely helpful and polite. This is a 300-year-old hotel in a 400-year-old building.

      Perfect place and people

      from

      Right in the Heart of the City, a middle ages appearing gem. (you must get a picture of yourself standing outside, everyone else does) Very helpful multilingual desk. Excellent food. About the most personable waiters anywhere in Europe. flexible kitchen. Big bathrooms. The Castle isn't far away, the River isn't far away. For quick meals, the Indian food store 2 doors down. the opem air Market a half block was has fantastic variety of GOOD food. (I don't think they have airconditioning in some if not all rooms)

      Great Atmosphere

      from

      The Hotel Zum Ritter was a hotel we stumbled on when we arrived late at night and what a treat. The staff at the desk was really helpful and very nice, the room was big and had alot of ambience. In fact we even had a knight in shining armour outside our door. The location is fantastic and the view out our window was priceless. The only downfall to our room was it was on the street and since it is a college town it was pretty loud until late. My overall experience here was excellant and I would stay there again.

      Great location

      from

      The location for this hotel is great. It is in the center of everything. The room we stayed in was big and felt almost brand new. We also had a nice view from our window. I thought the morning breakfast buffet was also one of the best I had in Germany. Overall, I would recommend this hotel because of its location and because the room was nice.

      Very Nice Hotel

      from

      This is a charming old hotel with a perfect location in Heidelberg's alstadt. The room we had was clean, spacious, and beautifully decorated and the staff was very helpful and friendly. On our next trip to Heidelberg, we will definitely stay in the Romantik Hotel Zum Ritter once again.

      On Sunday we headed over to Matt and Karin's house for a cuppa and biccies. Matt and I left the women in the kitchen and walked over to Schwetzingen to check out the Weihnachtsmarkt there. To be honest I was a little disappointed because last year the Coca Cola Truck was there and there was an ice skating rink with a bar. I guess visiting a Christmas market during the ...

      The temperature is 28 degrees and snow showers. Heidelberg has 150,000 inhabitants. There are 6 universities. Students don't pay to go to university. Anybody can attend but must speak German. Heidelberg was not destroyed in war. The weather was bad so surrounding towns were bombed. Heidelberg is the largest German town. Approx 500 people lived in castle. The dancing hall is where everyone gathered and partied with their powdered wigs and lice. Today most ...

I remember reading books like The Guns of Navarone and Ice Station Zebra by Alistair MacLean and Sphere by Michael Crichton. I even got ...
