Loca­tion

The Hotel Hei­del­ber­ger Hof is loca­ted in the beau­ti­ful Old Town of Heidel­berg not far from the Haupt­straße. In only a few steps you can reach the popu­lar pede­strian zone from the hotel. Gale­ria Kauf­hof is also just around the corner for one or two shop­ping trips. Thus, one finds ever­ything what the shop­ping heart desi­res in the immediate pro­xi­mity.

But this can also be dis­tur­bing. By lea­ving the hotel, one has a view to a big con­struc­tion site that is cur­r­ently raging at the other side of the Sofi­en­straße. There, a multi-storey hotel is built right beside the big Gale­ria Kauf­hof. But in con­trast to this, the view to the other direc­tion, down the street Plöck, is already more plea­sant and the street is espe­cially a lot more quiet than the well tra­vel­led Sofi­en­straße.

The Heidel­berg Castle can be reached by a plea­sant walk through the Haupt­straße and then, if you don’t want to walk, by taking the moun­tain rail­way. If you prefer to con­ti­nue wal­king, you can also start the ascent on foot directly at Korn­markt.

If you like to visit impres­si­vely built churches, you can reach the St. Peter’s Church and also the Church of the Holy Spirit at the market place simply by wal­king through the Haupt­straße. If you still haven’t had enough after sight­see­ing in the Old Town, a walk on the other side of the Neckar along the Neckar­wiese or on the Phi­lo­so­phers’ Path can be ano­t­her way to stretch your feet.

Plöck
If, for example, you want to go to the other side of the Neckar, to the Neckar­wiese, you can simply take the bus. The large bus and tram stop Bis­marck­platz is loca­ted right next to Gale­ria Kauf­hof next to the hotel. There you will find many bus con­nec­tions in dif­fe­rent direc­tions of Heidel­berg.

Direc­tions

The hotel is loca­ted almost directly at the Sofi­en­straße, which is easy to find without having to drive around.

If you come to Heidel­berg by car, take the exit from the A5 onto the B37 at the Heidel­berg inter­change (Hei­del­ber­ger Kreuz) and thus reach the Old Town the fas­test way. If you come by plane and rent a car, it would be the same way from Frank­furt via the A5.

A few houses away, there is the hotel’s under­ground par­king garage where you can park your car for a daily fee. You can also search for a par­king space in the alleys of the Old Town. The chance that it is so close to the hotel will be rather small, though.

If you are tra­vel­ling by public trans­port, it is best to get off at Heidel­berg Haupt­bahn­hof (main sta­tion) and take bus number 32 in the direc­tion of Uni­ver­si­täts­platz to Bis­marck­platz or tram number 21 in the direc­tion of Bis­marck­platz. This is only a stone’s throw away from Hei­del­ber­ger Hof. The way from the stop to the hotel is also pos­si­ble with heavy lug­gage if you arrive by public trans­port. Just make sure you don’t travel at rush hour with your suit­ca­ses, other­wise the bus and train could be quite crow­ded.

From Bis­marck­platz you simply walk towards Gale­ria Kauf­hof, pass it on the left and turn left into the small street. Then you are directly in front of the Hotel Hei­del­ber­ger Hof.

The Hotel

What was once known as the Nas­sauer Hof has become the Hei­del­ber­ger Hof. The Hei­del­ber­ger Hof is a 4 star hotel and is family-run. Since 1921, the rela­tively small city hotel has proved its worth at its place in Heidel­berg.

The hotel only offers bre­ak­fast, but due to the loca­tion of the hotel this is not a big deal. The Hei­del­ber­ger Hof is loca­ted at the sou­thern edge of the Old Town, which is why the way to the main street is not far. This means that those who want to have lunch and dinner will not have far to go, as the streets bran­ching off from Gale­ria Kauf­hof also offer many pos­si­bi­li­ties to eat.

The recep­tion of this Heidel­berg hotel is opened from 6 – 22 o’clock. If nobody is pre­sent, there is a bell at the ent­rance door. The check-in times start from 2 pm and the latest check out is pos­si­ble until 11 am.

Our dear pets are allo­wed here for a small change.

Equip­ment and ser­vices

Alt­hough the Hei­del­ber­ger Hof is not the lar­gest hotel, it still offers a fit­ness area and a small sauna. Ever­yone knows how stress­ful sight­see­ing can be. A few moments in the sauna can work mira­cles. And if you can or want to take care of your phy­si­cal fit­ness during your city trip, the fit­ness area in the hotel is just made for you.

If you don’t like to tidy up or make the bed, the daily clea­ning ser­vice will do it for you. And if your favou­rite trou­sers get dirty on a trip to the Phi­lo­so­phers’ Path, you can have them washed by the ser­vice for a little change at the hotel.

If you reach Heidel­berg before the check-in times, you can also leave your lug­gage at the hotel so that you can set off to explore Heidel­berg immedia­tely after your arri­val. You can also leave your lug­gage at the hotel after you have che­cked out of your room if you want to enjoy a last view of Heidel­berg from the castle or if you want to shop for sou­ve­nirs in the Haupt­straße.

If you are tra­vel­ling with your child­ren, there is an extra child-friendly buffet for them and if they are bored, there are even some board games on site when the smart­phone is not at hand. For small child­ren there are also baby cribs in this hotel.

The Hei­del­ber­ger Hof offers you a variety of arran­ge­ments. For example, there is an extra wed­ding suite for the wed­ding couple or an arran­ge­ment tog­e­ther with the star chef of the Heidel­berg Castle, where you can enjoy a 6-course menu and a shut­tle to the castle.

In addi­tion to the ser­vice in the hotel, you can also book a variety of tickets for attrac­tions or one of the many city tours. The city tour is also avail­able with an addi­tio­nal boat trip, which is cer­tainly recom­men­ded when the wea­ther is good.

If you are loo­king for a loca­tion for a con­fe­rence, the Hei­del­ber­ger Hof also offers a room equip­ped with modern tech­no­logy. The room is also per­fectly suited for an event, such as a bir­th­day party.

The rooms

With 21 rooms, inclu­ding single and double rooms, and a junior suite, the number of guests at the hotel is always very mana­ge­able. All rooms are non-smo­king, which means that if you are a smoker, you need to go out for some fresh air for your morning ciga­rette.

The rooms are equip­ped with a tele­vi­sion with inter­na­tio­nal pro­grams, a radio, a bathroom with a shower or a bath­tub, a safe, free wire­less inter­net, a desk, a hair dryer and a cos­me­tic mirror in the bathroom. Some of the double and single rooms are also equip­ped with air con­di­tio­ning. They can all be reached via the ele­va­tor, so you don’t have to lug your suit­ca­ses up the stairs.

If you are in Heidel­berg with a larger group, some of the rooms can be used as 3- or 4-bed rooms due to dor­mi­to­ries. Some rooms can also be enlar­ged by con­nec­ting doors. This means that if the group is not divi­ded up in your favour, you may be able to share a room with your favou­rite fellow tra­vel­lers.

The Junior Suite also has its own ref­ri­gera­tor. So you can bring your mid­ni­ght snack in this hotel to your room and keep it cool there.

Con­clu­sion

The Hotel Hei­del­ber­ger Hof, with its loca­tion, is per­fect for quickly chop­ping off your sight­see­ing to-do list. Due to its size, you can also quickly feel like you are in a 2nd home.

Prices & Boo­king

You can book your room directly on the hotel’s home­page.
