In front of the library, there are many bikes and cars and also the bus passes the hotel from the university square. The Schlossberg Tunnel, through which many cars find their way every day, ends a few metres above the ArtHotel. But due to the reason that the hotel is not located right at the adjoining street Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage, one only sometimes hears a loud motorcycle.
If one is on the Seminarstraße that passes the glass front of the hotel, it is even possible to get a view of the Heidelberg Castle. Thus, if you plan your stay in the ArtHotel Heidelberg, you are really in the middle of the Old Town and the student bustle. And also the touristic hustle and bustle in the Hauptstraße is only a few metres away from the hotel. You just walk past the university library and the university square and you are part of the hustle and bustle.
From the bus stop at the Peterskirche, one gets to the main station relatively fast with the bus line 20 or 32. Also the suburban train station Heidelberg Altstadt can quickly be reached from there with the line 33. But with a little side trip through the pedestrian zone, one can also get to the suburban train station by foot.
The hotel has its own parking garage for its guests, where you can park your car for a daily fee. If you prefer to use the public parking facilities, you will find more possibilities nearby. But you can also go on a long search in the streets of the old town and get a free parking space with a little luck.
If you are travelling by public transport, it is best to get off at Heidelberg main station and take bus number 20 to the Peterskirche stop or bus number 32 to Universitätsplatz. From there, it is only a few minutes’ walk to the hotel, which can even be managed with huge suitcases.
In this 4-star hotel, the philosophy ” quality is a duty, service is the freestyle” rules. It wants to reflect the charms of Heidelberg and offer its guests a space for their ideas. The historic outer front of the boutique-design hotel fits in perfectly with the charm of the Old Town, while the glass part of the facade stands out artistically from the surroundings.
The hotel reception is open during the week from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. and at weekends from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. The earliest possible check-in is at 2 pm and the latest check-out is possible until 11 am.
For our dear animal companions there is a daily fee at the ArtHotel.
By subscribing to a newsletter, you can always stay up to date and, for example, become aware of offers early on. In addition to offers such as a winter weekend or 2 nights at the Heidelberg Castle Lighting there are also vouchers for the restaurant or overnight stays for sale.
Equipment and services
There is no shortage of conference rooms at the hotel. With a total of six conference rooms, the ArtHotel offers a large selection. Many of these rooms can also be booked in combination, so that really every guest gets a seat and nobody has to stand for the whole time. The rooms are equipped with beautiful oak parquet flooring, air-conditioned and have network cabling and Wi-Fi access in all areas. The room “Atrium 3” even has its own electric screen, which is perfect for showing for example a PowerPoint or slideshow. The individual rooms vary in size and can accommodate up to 220 guests. With the right technology and presentation, nothing should stand in the way of a conference here.
If you reach Heidelberg before the check-in times, you can also leave your luggage at the hotel so that you can set off and explore Heidelberg immediately after your arrival. Likewise, after you have checked out of your room, you can leave your luggage at the hotel if you want to enjoy a last view of Heidelberg from the Castle.
If you are dependent on barrier-free access, you will unfortunately have a rather difficult time in this Heidelberg hotel.
If you are travelling with children, the hotel will provide extra beds or baby cribs for a few euros, although there is only one baby crib available. That means, whoever comes first, grinds first. However, children are also allowed to sleep in their parents’ bed until they are six years old.
Wedding at the ArtHotel
Whether an aperitif on the roof garden, coffee and cake in the Romer Restaurant or in the Romers Hof, the hotel offers a variety of rooms for the wedding guests. You will also be assisted by an advisor of the hotel in the choice of food and you and your partner can choose between menus and buffets. The hotel will also follow your own food wishes.
All rooms have access to free WLAN, air conditioning, an LED TV with DVD player, a desk, additional seating, a telephone, a safe and a bathroom with a shower and a bathtub. All rooms have a floor of beautiful oak parquet and are accessible by lift.
Despite the relatively small number of rooms, the ArtHotel has three room categories besides the Erkerzimmer. The rooms are all furnished in a modern way and do justice to the style of the hotel.
The Erkerzimmer is the largest room of the hotel and is kept in loft style. It even has its own seating area next to the various living areas. So you can make yourself really comfortable there.
All rooms in the ArtHotel are also allergy-friendly.
Especially the large roof garden and the vaulted cellar are very suitable for events such as a wedding in summer on the roof of the Art Hotel.
In the Restaurant Romer all dishes of the day are served. In the à la carte restaurant you can choose between culinary, seasonal, regional and especially fresh food.
If you are so tired after your sightseeing tour and need a coffee, you can get one in the Romer Lounge of the hotel. Even night owls, who want a cocktail after dinner or before a party, will find what they are looking for here.
In the summer time, the hotel opens the Romers Hof. There, one can comfortably eat, drink and enjoy a hopefully beautiful summer day under the open sky and between the half-timbered houses and the glass facade.
Prices, Booking & Cancellation
The prices start at about 109€, but can be higher or lower depending on the season.
When booking, you should also consider taking out a travel cancellation insurance. If your trip to Heidelberg does not go as planned, for example due to illness or a spontaneous change of mind, there is no free cancellation at this hotel.
