The Hauptstraße can be reached, just like the bridge, in a few steps. From there you have free choice. Whether you take the ascent to Heidelberg Castle by mountain railway or on foot, go to St. Peter’s Church, or go on a shopping tour along the Hauptstraße. That is up to you. And it’s all within walking distance from the hotel. But if you would like to go to the Neckarwiese, on the other side of the river, the bus stop Marstall is right in front of the hotel.
If you would like to become a little more cultural, there are also some museums nearby, like the Studentenkarzer or the Kurpfälzische Museum. The Heidelberg Theater is also not far away.
Although the hotel is located right next to the busy street on the shore, this should not be a problem. The cars there do not drive too fast and are often interrupted by the pedestrian lights and the bus at the bus stop in their flow.
The reception of the hotel is open during the week from 7 am to 10 pm and on weekends and holidays from 8 am to 6 pm. You can check into your room from no earlier than 3 pm and must leave your room and check out by 11 am on your departure day.
If you book a room at Villa Marstall, you cannot take your dog or other pet with you. Animal companions are not allowed in this hotel.
Equipment and services
The rooms are cleaned daily. This means that if you don’t feel like making your bed in the morning, or if you have to leave very quickly, your bed will be waiting for you magically freshened when you return.
If your time in Heidelberg is over and you want to go back to the city to buy souvenirs after checking out, you can leave your luggage at the hotel while you are still in Heidelberg. The same applies if you reach Heidelberg before the check-in time.
The Hotel Villa Marstall offers you a wide range of different offers. For example, you can book a Cabrio Sightseeing Tour with an additional guided tour of the Old Town and a 3-course menu in the restaurant “Zum Güldenen Schaf”. If you would like to see the castle in Heidelberg as well as the castle in Schwetzingen, Villa Marstall also has an offer for you. If you would like to make a present to your loved ones, there is also the possibility to buy gift vouchers in this hotel.
All rooms are equipped with a television, a small refrigerator, air conditioning, free Wi-Fi access, usually also a desk and additional seating, a safe, a hair dryer and a cosmetic mirror in the bathroom. Due to the fact that the hotel is almost standing completely free, the rooms have the very different views. Some point to the bank of the Neckar or to the Marstall, others to the old synagogue place.
In the three categories Classic, Superior and the Junior Suite there are even some rooms with the original historical ceiling or a historical sandstone wall with half-timbered walls. You won’t find the furniture in the rooms anywhere else, because the solid wood furniture was specially designed for the hotel. In the Junior Suite there is even a small kitchenette for you and you have a 270 degree view of the surroundings. This means you can enjoy the view of the Old Bridge and Heidelberg Castle from your room.
If you need an extra bed for your fellow travellers, you will have to pay for this with a little change, if you book in advance. If your fellow traveller is a child who is at most 6 years old, he/she is allowed to sleep in the parents’ bed.
But if you don’t rent a car, you can book an airport transfer directly through the hotel.
Unfortunately, the hotel does not have its own parking garage, but 2 parking garages are only a few minutes away by car. You could either park in P12 at Kornmarkt or in P13 at Karlsplatz. Both parking garages are close to each other, so you don’t have far to go if one of them is occupied. From the parking garages it is only a few minutes walk. If you have had a long drive and don’t feel like lugging your suitcases around anymore, you can also take the bus, which will usually take you longer than if you were walking.
If you are travelling by public transport, it is best to get off at Heidelberg Hauptbahnhof (main station) and change there to bus number 32 in the direction of Universitätsplatz. If your S-Bahn continues to pass through Heidelberg, you can also get off at the stop Heidelberg Altstadt and from there, for example, take bus number 35 towards Wieblingen or bus number 735 towards Heidelberg Hauptbahnhof to your Heidelberg hotel. If you don’t have a lot of luggage, you can also walk along the Neckar River from the Heidelberg Altstadt stop to your hotel and enjoy a first view of the bridge.
