The volume of the road should not be a problem inside the hotel. By turning into the forecourt, the hotel is arranged like an own little bay around the court. Thus, there are barely any windows that point straight to the street. Already in the lobby, despite the glass doors, one barely hears anything of the hustle and bustle that takes place in front of the entrance.
As nice as the hotel may be, the view to the big street and also to the huge crossing a few metres further is not so nice to look at. But of course, one does not have to drive forever through small alleyways in order to get quickly out of Heidelberg if one wants to.
The next bus stops are in the immediate surrounding of the hotel. By leaving the hotel and walking to the left, a few steps away there is the bus stop Friedrich-Ebert-Platz. Due to the different bus lines, the main station can be easily reached from there with for example line 20. For a little more choice there is the station Bismarckplatz with many bus lines and tram lines that meet there. One gets to the station by walking to the right starting from the hotel and walking down Sofienstraße to the main street. Most of the times, there are many people at the Bismarckplatz, thus it cannot be missed.
If you come to Heidelberg by car, take the exit from the A5 onto the B37 at the Heidelberger interchange. This is the fastest way to get to the Old Town. If you come by plane and rent a car, this would also be the same way via the A5 from Frankfurt.
If you are travelling by public transport, it is best to get off at Heidelberg main station and take bus number 20 to the Gaisbergstraße or Friedrich Ebert Anlage stop, or bus number 34 to Bismarckplatz. From there, it is only a few minutes walk to the hotel, which can even be mastered with huge suitcases.
The 165 multilingual employees, including 40 trainees, ensure the best possible stay. So if you prefer a small hotel with few employees, you’re in the wrong place. This does not mean that one cannot feel safe in the big halls of the hotel. In fact, one is already welcomed in an open hearted way at the reception.
If you are visiting Heidelberg and want to stay in rooms where celebrities such as David Hasselhoff, Ed Sheeran, Jay-Z and Nena have stayed alongside many other people from history, politics, etc., then you have come to the very right place.
Our beloved animal companions are as welcomed in this hotel as the two-legged guests.
A newsletter will keep you up to date about current events. If an event catches your eye or if you want to give away a dinner or an overnight stay, there is the possibility to buy vouchers and give them to your loved ones.
Equipment and services
Once the power tank is full again, you can, if you wish, work off your energy in the gym. If this is not quite so easy for you, you can book your personal trainer through this Heidelberg hotel, who will help you to defeat your inner laziness.
Whether with or without children, you can relax in the spa at any age. Minors over 16 may also use the spa area of the hotel without accompaniment.
However, if you have younger children who cannot be alone yet and you still want to enjoy the time in the spa alone, the Europäische Hof offers a babysitting service.
If there is some work to be done besides the fun and relaxation, 2 cabins at the reception offer a computer and printer for free use.
If you travel to Heidelberg by plane, you can book an airport transfer directly through the hotel from about 150€.
If you would like to make a larger excursion outside the centre, you can also book a limousine service with your own chauffeur. If your requirements are not that high and you prefer to explore Heidelberg by bike, the hotel will be happy to organise this for you from a rental company so that you can start cycling as soon as possible.
Events and conferences
All of these rooms have individually adjustable air conditioning, a television with HD-TV and international programs, free Wifi, a mini-bar, a hair dryer, a door viewer for spying, a telephone, a desk and other seating furniture. In addition, bathrobes, slippers and cosmetic products are available in the rooms, so that you can enjoy a little wellness pleasure right in your room. All rooms are of course accessible via the elevator.
If you need a barrier-free room, just let the hotel know and they will provide you with one.
The suites are all divided into at least 2 living areas. In the Penthouse Suite, there is, in addition to all the luxury, a private terrace and a view of the beautiful Heidelberg Castle.
If you book a room in the hotel and need a baby crib or an extra bed for your kids, you can get an extra bed for a small change and the baby crib free of charge to your room.
If you are unhappy or change your mind, you can also rebook your room.
In the Kurfürstenstube everything revolves around fine dining and classic French cuisine. Whether 3, 4, 5 courses or à la carte, the restaurant of this Heidelberg hotel offers all of it. The cherry on top of the cream puff then forms the wine accompaniment with the advice of a sommelier.
In summer, the Sommerrestaurant is a great place to enjoy regional and market-fresh dishes. If you like fish, it is served here every day. And if you are an ice cream lover, you are probably also on cloud nine with their homemade ice cream.
In the Europa Bar and the Smokers Lounge, you can end the day with a drink or a cigar. For lovers of exclusive cigars, a concierge even offers a selection of tobaccos that can be enjoyed around the clock in the lounge.
If you as a guest were so convinced of the good food and service of this hotel, it gives you the opportunity to bring it all to you. Because the hotel even has its own catering service for various events.
As this of course still does not offer enough variety, the hotel holds speciality weeks and days with different offers. On Valentine’s Day, for example, there was a 4-course menu for 89€ per person with the motto “All you need is love”, so the day of love has probably been made even more beautiful by the food.
The breakfast buffet offers a choice of lactose-free, gluten-free, halal or kosher food on request. If you would like to have breakfast at the hotel but have not booked it, breakfast will cost you a few extra euros.
If you as an individual have an appointment with a hotel guest for breakfast, you pay the regular price.
Prices, Booking & Cancellation
If you are unable to travel for any reason, you can cancel your booking free of charge up to 48 hours before your planned arrival. If the hotel is unable to rent the room for the planned period, you may be charged 90% of the price.
