This hotel has such potential - we even had a balcony! So where did it go wrong? Well...for a start, we arrived in Heidelberg along with the first real cold spell of the autumn and sure, we were told that we could put the heating on in the room, but the radiator next to our daughter's extra bed never worked and the one near our bed was hidden underneath our curtains once we drew them at night, thereby creating stress that the place would burn down as the textile got incredibly hot - we had to fold the curtains in the end to relax. Secondly, you have to tell reception (a flight upstairs so do not try this hotel if you need a lift) what time you want to have breakfast. There is no buffet but just four tables and quite a casual breakfast lady serving you delicious food as such but we are in Germany and yet there is no Alpen-yoghurt nor even a boiled egg in sight. Nah, this place rakes in the money and it does so on its wonderful location. As soon as you step outside, you are below the Old Bridge (see third picture) so it really cannot be better and room rates are accordingly. To be ctd.
Unique Quality: Location.
Don't expect a lot of space at this hotel. It is in fact the smallest Chris and I ever stayed anywhere. But like most of Heidelberg, it has history.
Unique Quality: Quite a few scholars have stayed at this hotel over the years. Mark Twain was said to have made it his hotel of choice. In short:The hotel is small, clean, has good enough breakfast (included in the price) and is central.
Directions: Right in front of the famed Heidelberg bridge.
The Goldener Hecht is a comfy bargain in a great location. Situated right near the old bridge, the hotel has the same view as it's much more expensive neighbor.
The rooms are small but very clean and comfortable. The staff is great and the nice little courtyard is welcoming.
We stayed at the Goldener Hecht. There cannot be a much better location. It looks out onto the Old Bridge (see previous picture) and of course the river. The Hotel's restaurant has an outdoor patio which is ideal for people watching and the food is delicious
Unique Quality: Large comfortable rooms.Faces the Old Bridge.
Directions: Foot of the Old Bridge
