I was very surprised for what I got for what I paid. Room is small (expected) but clean and neat.
The bad: One star decrease was for shower/bathroom. It's really small and may get uncomfortable for bigger person. Sink was quite small as well and
shelf above it was in a way. The only real issue was with water regulator in a shower. The hot water was scalding hot. And it was hard to adjust lever for proper temperature balance. And considering the shower size any move could knock it off delivering either steamy or freezing stream.
The good: free mini bar, including decent beer and soft drinks. Breakfast was one of the best i had for free. Items including smoked salmon and variety of quality cheeses. I would probably estimate 20% or room rate just for breakfast. If you travel in couple that can save you on its own.
Central location, across the street from the entrance to the central railway terminal. Easy access to everything.
Oh, and bath robe and slippers were included (!).
The ugly: I was harassed by two beggars within 100m between terminal and hotel. They were polite and non aggressive though. Still parted with 3 euros. One was good enough to speak English well and showed me the way around :)
Highly recommended for budget traveler. I decide to stay there again on my next travel.
this hotel was the worse that I have ever been in. There was bugs flying around the room, birds that kept us wake all night. The beds were not on frames that mattress and box spring were on the floor. I have two hip replacements and a knee
replacement so it was hard for me to get up and down from the bed.
My daughter was afraid to see that something was going to crawl on her.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
would recommend taking a tour of Heidelberg and Rhine River tours.
We used the hotel as a center point to take day trips to other towns like Heidelburg and koln and nurmburg. The location of the hotel made this so convenient. Also the breakfast at the hotel was excellent and served a variety of foods for
