The hotel is very nice, traditional style, with very friendly staff. Yet our visit was a disaster- the hotel doesn’t have an air conditioning and there was 34 Celsius outside...and inside as well. The room was on the top floor and it was as to sleep in an oven. We got fans to make life at least easier , but only late evening we were able to really rest . A pity, as the place is more than nice. But please, consider AC!

This is a wonderful hotel steeped in charm. The owner takes incredible pride and attention to detail, which adds tremendously to the overall experience. I almost gave it 4.5 stars only because the hotel lacks air conditioning and we were there during the heat wave of 2018... the windows opened and offered some relief. But I decided even that wouldn't detract from the 5 star rating. We had dinner there as well, which was excellent. We normally prefer modern hotels, but with the exception of the ac issue, we prefer the overall feel of this place.

This hotel offers the best facilities and amenities one can think of. Our room had three different rooms: one living room and two sleeping rooms. The rooms had a. King size bed and another queen size bed. The design of the room was very cozy. It was looking like something from the medieval era. The diner was good and one table had Mark Twain’s incriptions on it. Parking was adequate and it could fit our car. The Heidelberg Castle was a bit far but it was travellable.

When you close your eyes and imagine staying at a historic hotel in a picturesque German town full of charm and character what you're thinking of is the Hotel Die Hirschgasse in Heidelberg. From the moment you approach the building, cloaked in classic finishes and some beautiful flowering vines wrapping around the door frames you just know this is it. Stepping inside, being greeted by a warm and welcoming staff and absolutely knockout design and furnishings, well, if you're like me, you'll never want to leave. The hotel is small, boutique style, and well appointed. The rooms are beautifully decorated, cozy and yet, spacious. Worth every single penny. And one piece of advice: if you stay DO NOT skip the breakfast. It is life changing delicious and decadent. Honestly, the food was just as memorable as the accommodations and service. If I got to choose, my last day might be spent at this hotel and eating that breakfast. I sincerely hope I can return one day.

It looks lovely and initially pleases the eye. The old and steeped in history is pushed heavily. There was parking early on. For me the room was tired and the food and wine seemed a tad expensive the town is half a mile walk along the river, but a lovely old town and castle you have to visit Have stayed in Heidelberg before but personally prefer a more modern hotel. Service 8/10 Overall 7/10 Room 4/10 Heidelberg 10/10
