The stay at Birkenhof was wondeful and relaxing. The location is remote from town, so there are no traffic or other noises to cause disruption. The owners were extremely helpful and attentive. I have no hesitation in recommending this establishement.
very convenient, good value for money, nice breakfast
Excellent service and a really big room. Ugly environment and we couldn't leave a window open because of the nasty smell in the air (pigs?).
We enjoyed the friendly welcome with no detail too much for the owner.He went to great lengths to help us settle in. He also advised us about the area and means of local travel. There are no negatives only big positives!
The hotel owners are friendly and warm welcoming. The breakfast buffet had a great variaty to choose of. The room had free wireless connection and the location was quiet and relaxing. I arrived with a group of 8 people and we all have been very pleased with our stay over at this hotel.
the air conditioning was not working, we complained 5 times and instead of telling us it was out of order, apparently for some time, we were told that they were adjusting the temperaure to 0 degrees C, which of course didnt work! we received different excuses, technicians not available, other rooms had the same problem etc
Modern, comfortable, well-maintained About ten minutes walk to the old town: for sightseeing something closer might have been better.
Breakfast buffet. Very good and much better than similarly priced breakfast from Leonardo hotels nearby.
I had to stay in a smoking room despite having notified weeks in advance that i was a non smoker! very displeasant experience!
loved those mosaic tile heated lounges. they were really incredible after a cold day of visiting heidelberg thermostat on furnace still kept room to warm. perhaps going to digital would be easier to work.
Hotel was very nice looking from the front desk. I really hoped I could stay there. Staff was helpful and made sure I was as taken care of as I could be for the situation I booked only to turn up and find that their was no availability so I was shipped to another hotel that was not as nice.
buffet breakfast, efficient service, polite manner, great locaton, great facilities. wifi was terrible, when our power went out reception didn't do anything about it until i asked 3 times.
For whatever reason best know to the hotel, we paid for a regular double room through the site, and ended up with a suite. I am sure that we were just very very lucky, but the hotel is fantastic. The rooms that we saw are all to a high specification and the staff are very helpful. As a little tip the rooms are over 30 Euros cheaper if you specify no breakfast. It is a bit of a walk to the old town, 20 minutes, but it really isn't that big a deal and should not put you off.
Great city; very friendly and convenient to all. Also has great beer! All good
Convenience of underground car park When arriving by car not too easy to see the entrance, which if you pass it involves a tricky manoeuvre - I nearly had an accident
Large room, convenient location directly between the HBF and Altstadt Way too expensive for a basic room
good location close to the altstadt, very nice room and excellent bar with a big screen for sports
Facilities are outstanding, great pool area. Checked in a 1400, tried to make a reservation to the restaurant only to be told that is was already booked/reserved by an entire group. Parking is expensive, but I've always complained about it and it will never change.
The central location, and elegant feel. Breakfast price. Although the food was great, I felt it was overpriced.
Nice and clean room. Easy access to public transportation. There are restaurants and shops when you walk across the street.
It's location to the shopping center & attractions, also the very friendly & helpful staff, along with the clean lesure facilities.
location noise from pumps?or heating/cooling equipment
The room was spectacular! Very comfortable, well furnished- amazing night sleep! the spa area was very nice- very clean and large enough to accommodate everyone without feeling crowded. it was quite close to the city and very accessible by car from the motorway. The breakfast was ridiculously over priced! We didn't try it but were quite insulted that in such a nice hotel they have the audacity to charge that much for some bread and eggs! The parking as well was ridiculous especially because from Saturday afternoon until monday morning its free to park on the street (highly recommended).
Nice breakfast and friendly staff. Our overall stay was great since the staff and the room quality (despite the narrow bed) were of a great value. Spa a bit outdated and slippery due to the type of tiles. Bad service in the spa.
Very helpful staff and excellent location
It has all that you need as restaurant, bar and a excellent spa. Our room was a litle small and do not has captain bell to help us with the luggage
It was clean and quiet. Room was small as compared to others I stayed in. Did not like twin beds separated. Breakfast was good.
I llike the comfort, the breakfast and the hotel facilities. When I made my reservation online I checked not smoking room. In my check in I was given a smoking room. Of course, the reception clerk changed the room, but he said the hotel is not obligated to follow the guest options.
Personnel were very helpful, and breakfast was very good. No elevator, therefore not handicap friendly; outrageous prices for internet use.
Staff was very hepful and polite, hotel was very clean
the breakfast guests have to pay for the htel parking
you need a car if you stay there...
It is clean and quiet. There is no lift. We have to carry our luggage to go upstairs.
The room was spacious, the breakfast was very good.
Staff very friendly and efficient Poor location if you want to go into the city
confusion and expensive brekfast expensive brekfast 15 euro person in not came again
clean free car park Calm Coffee machine and water The internet access is a RIP OFF !!!! Free of charge, the line is 512 K which is just ridiculeous in the 21rst century. The premium access is charged 10 euros per 24 hours for a promised 100 Mb line...I paid and I had 3 Mb !!!! Despite a complain, nothing back ! the bar is also very limited :(
Clean and modern no kettle in room
room was comfortable and it was a good price. not too far from the centre with lots of public transport.
Nice TV, room very clean and well furnished.
Thse staff was friendly, the room had nice view Windows could not be fully opened. Breakfast was not included and was expensive (15 euros)
The fresh orange Jose in the reception desk The bath towel is old and bad smell , toilet is small , the building is very old but the furniture is new
There was a problem in that they had not booked a triple room, but this was sorted with minimal fuss in that they gave us an extra room for free. We were travelling with children, and although the menu etc did not have children;s options, and we were worried about being out of place at dinner, the restaurant staff were really kind and brought free ice cream and noodles for our younger children and made us feel at home. Nice to have swings and slide outside for them to play on too. Rooms reasonably spacious - quite nosiy from car park and main road, but no problem for us. Located just across the road from the fantastic Luisenpark, where we spent a whole day. The swimming pool was really nice but very cold! The hotel was further away from the main shops and restaurants than we expected, but a nice 15-20 min walk (through the amazing Wasserturm and fountain square - you must see the fountain at night).
It was near the location where I have a course Breakfast is too expensive, and wifi is not free. It would be nice if it would be included.
Pool area was very clean and tidy. Room was well decorated and a safe in your room was excellent. We felt that as a four star hotel there would have been tea and coffee making facilities in your room, very disappointed there was not. All hotels in England have this facility. The cost of the breakfast was also very expensive.
Located near Lueisn Park and the staff being freindely and very helpful No
Wery solid and sound, you get the feeling that this hotel has been there fore centuries and all the staff is friendly and know what they are doing. Use of Internet should be easily accessable and free of charge. The Wellness Center should be free of charge for guests
Outstanding restaurant in which we had a superb meal and received excellant recommendations for both food and wine
1. Afternoon Room keeping service: Ready to bed 2. Very customer orientated friendly staff 2. Details: One-way Toilettery (from Etro) represented the Hotel standard 1. Narrow front parking.Very limited to pick up our luggage. 2. For 22 Euro, Breakfast was not that fascinating. (Need to be upgraed to Moevenpick standard)
Good location Very dated hotel interior and exterior
Room was decent, staff were friendly and helpful. All extras (breakfast, swimming pool, internet, etc) were separately priced, and rather expensive.
Location , Cleanliness of the rooms and the hotel services the toilets are clean and comfortable but i did not like the seperation between the bath and the toilet
Only thing that was missing was that in breakfast room the butler did not have white gloves. :)., But anyway I like that big man as he takes his job very seriously.
Great room,great view,great place Only complaint that having paid decent money to stay you then get charged to use the wellness facilities on top and the price didnt include breakfast.
Classic, old luxury hotel with excellent service and good restaurants together with a modern spa. With the price negotiated by Booking.com we really got value for money. Nothing
Cosy decoration and excellent staff Price of internet access is too high and 24 hour minimum instead of more flexible periods
Selection of Hotels in Mannheim is small - this is the most convenient and comfortable one.
Central location was good and staff was friendly, The hotel was being renovated however I never heard a thing in the room. This is my second time in this hotel! I was not informed of the hotel renovations.. luckly they were very understanding and very quiet.
inside architecture and space proportions, deco color schemes quality of materials and outfits Very pleasant for the connoisseur
Pleasent location and facilities
Very nice hotel and specially very friendly people in the front. My room was big, clean, with a very nice view. It is very easy to find and it has a parking place connected to the hotel, so you can access your car without walking too much (safe from rain). The breakfast was not included.
The hotel was in a typical turn of the centry building, but with all the modern necessities of a modern hotel. Very nice, comfortable architecture. The hotel was also very close to the city center (5 min walk through a beautiful garden). Internet in the lobby was also available and free. No complaints at all.
spacious rooms, very modern and luxury bathroom, wooden floors (clean)
Very quiet ! Not enough international TV channels
Good location, nice clean room and kind reception staff. It was slight difficult to find a car parking area. Hopefully bath.
Great location, whole new object.
Location close to city center easy access from autobahn The lack of onsite parking is a severe handicap not helped by confusingly signed public parking
My unexpectedly early check in was accomodated nicely Nothing. Everything was okay.
Very good service and friendly staff No
Freindly staff Small Rooms.
Brand new facilities, big rooms. Logical rate for wireless internet access. Rather poor breakfast.
The rooms are very funky and have good quality fittings. The hotel is in a quieter location, but not too far from the Aldstadt. No iron/ironing board in room
Reamrkably good restaurant inside the hotel. Polite available staffa at the restaurant. Very cold and unavailable staff at the reception desk. Smiling is an unknown facial effort to them. On request help was delivered about the free internet available on the concierge desk only at the price of evident impatience. The parking lot is not high enough for a car taller than a spider. Parking on the roads is very expensive on working days.
Modern rooms. Simple and efficient.
Excellent attention to making this a great place to stay if you have any allergies or sensitivities to chemicals. The restaurant is quite nice, with a great chef. Rooms are spacious and the location is a short walk from the old city and all the attractions of Heidelberg.
Chic, modern rooms. Decent location within walking distance of the Altstadt and convenient access to public transportation. Staff was very efficient. I felt like I was being 'nickled and dimed,' having to pay extra for breakfast and internet access. At other hotels I stayed on this holiday, internet and breakfast was included.
comfortable rooms, clean and nicely decorated. If you leave the window open, it is quite noisy. A/C is available, however, I prefer to have fresh air.
The hotel is entirely new (interior) and is meticulously clean and comfortable; the staff were excellent. Ideal for a one or two night stay. Limited parking. The hotel garage was state of the art, but could not accommodate my E Class Mercedes as it was too long to stack and the on street parking meters will not allow one to purchase a ticket in the evening that is valid when required from 7 am the next day.
Sitting out side and people watching while I was drinking a Pils
location of hotel initially trying to find hotel; limited access through pedestrian zone
It is a very homely environment. I like the restaurant set up. The staff speaks good English and very helpful. The wash room is very small.
Location is perfect and the historical value of the building is extremely impressive!
was not told about extre chg for breakfast
This is actually a historical landmark in Heidelberg and tour groups visit it! Each room was different and offered various amenties-tub versus shower, for example. Old World decor and views of The Castle. Fabulous location -can walk to almost everything. Would definitely stay here again. Tiniest of complaints-the baths linens were terrible! I use better and thicker ones when washing my car!
The location is perfect! Clean rooms and helpful staff.
Excellent location, large comfortable room. Church bells rang every 15 minutes throughout the night. Probably unavoidable anywhere in the city.
The central location could not be better. The room was very noisy at night with outside revelers noise through until 3 / 4 am. No lounge area for sitting and relaxing.
The location of the hotel could not have been better. We could walk to everything. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. The hotel was opposite the church. The church bells rang loudly every fifteen minutes. Other guests sang and shouted outside the hotel until 6.00 am so kept us awake all night.
Loved the old town near by.
One point. Although I specifically asked whether breakfast was included in the room rate and received an affirmative answer, I got charged 15 euro per person for breakfast while check-out.
Excellent dinner at reasonable price. XL breakfast. Very kind and professional staff. Reserved parking space for women was a nice plus. The room was maybe a bit too noisy but that depends I guess from the other guests - not the hotel itself...
Hotel is spacious, has a free parking. After 11 o'clock there is just stuff from the bar to help you if there is something wrong in the room. Like I had a bathroom heater broken, and the guy didn't know how to repair it. On the other hand he was helpful
Relativly Cheap The Bed and pillows are not comfortable
sauna and sport room When I checked in I had to wait for 1 hour but it's not important......when I checked out there was a mistake in the hotel bill (+50 euro...it's really not very fine).. but when I came back home the hotel contested me the failure to appear ahhh behhh that's absurd!!!!!!!
Facilities, ie sauna, were very good. Restaurant was a bit pricey.
The staff were excellent and the sparking wine on arrival was a bit of a treat. The room was spacious and the bathroom facilities were very good. On site parking was a major factor in choosing accommodation on this trip. While there a trip into Ladenburg township is a must. This hotel seeks to atract business for conferences etc yet it does not have free access to WiFi which is readily available in budget hotels. Get with the 21st century people.
In general OK No gym at the hotel, a bit difficult to park
Room was large, neatly decorated and had a very modern large bathroom as well. The room was consistently hot and when you try to cool it off by opening the windows you were faced with a smell of burnt food mixed with cigarettes from a restaurant next-door. Do not stay in a room facing the courtyard. Our room was 126, which was particularly bad. Additionally the hotel walls appear to be very thin and we seemed to be able to hear noise from all over the hotel.
We battled to find the address
Overall cleaness of the hotel Tv was not working.
great location, the room is big enough for us, and the internet work very will.
The hotel was conveniently located. The room was very large and clean. Overall we thought it was a great value.
Everything was great. Great location.
I thought that the staff was tremendously helpful and very knowledgeable. I enjoyed breakfast and the overall cleanliness of the hotel.
Room was very pleasantly decorated. Just across street from Hauptstrasse to walk in old city of Heidelberg Hotel garage was a little difficult to get in and out of.
The hotel was "Perfectly" located close to everything like public transport,old city,restaurants,shopping and also easy access to main attractions of the city. The rooms were clean and large,staff friendly and concerned about our satisfaction and needs.I Would give this hotel 10/10 None actually.Just that carpet was not clean in some places, we could see dark spots.
Excellent position, nice staff and comfortable room. Very good bakery really near the hotel with buttered pretzels!
Very clean and comfortable. Right in the centre. Need an alarm clock. Also can be a bit noisy from trams and people out late at weekends
Friendly staff with excellent command of multiple languages Nice shower with great water pressure
The employees and facility. Josaphine at the reception desk is wonderful. Everything was super
I hope to came to germanty and stay a gine in this hotel
Staff, Great attention to all my requests, especially Karina from the restaurant, excellent attention and kindness to speak in my lenguage (spanish). Small tv.
Staff was very courteous, friendly and helpful.
Lovely restaurant with excellent food and service. Rooms were very nice. Rooms were very warm the first night so difficult to sleep
Everything was great
Very helpful and friendly staff. Room very well equipped. Very clean hotel. Requested non-smoking room at booking but was put into a smoking room. Much to our disgust. Service at breakfast not as good as in some other hotels.
Gym was not really a gym, pool was very small.
Location Air conditioning not working
Good value for money, good size rooms, comfortable beds, quiet location and a very nice restaurant.
I loved that our room had a balcony that looked onto the courtyard NA
Room was so beautiful! Staffs were so kind. no freezer...
The spa facilities were good. The environment was quiet. The breakfast is OK, but a little bit overpriced. The day after the first night, the room was not done. The whirlpool in the spa area are not free of charge, although on the website it is indicated that the spa facilities are free of charge for hotel guests.
The hotel was new, the room was very clean, rather big for Europe and comfrortable. Spa fascilities were great. No airconditioning - it was hot and the hotel shoudl have AC at least during the summer months. Lack of at least a small pool in the spa to cool down. Must be a perfect place toi relax during cold weather months.
Nothing was too much trouble for the Staff. Due to the lack of Air-Conditioning in our Room, they cheerfully provided a Fan when we requested one.
Our room was large and light and pleasantly decorated. The bathroom was okay, and it was only a 23 minute tram ride to town (plus 5 minute walk to tram stop). Staff were pretty friendly and the restaurant was nice/somewhat plush. The area was a little industrial - Leimen is a bit of a whole in the Earth but it is very handy and the surrounding villages are nice. Given the roomy hotel and the nice development of the hotel grounds, you would have to otherwise pay a fortune for a similarly spacious hotel that wasn't in Leimen (there is nothing all that wrong with Leimen, it is just not as nice as much of the rest of Germany).The cuisine suffered from the typical lack of imagination when it comes to preparing gourmet food (i.e., the dogma that nice food needs to have one, or all of the following, in it: wine, meat, or goats cheese!). If you are a vegetarian wowser (as we are), maybe you should eat in town (though perhaps not in Leimen).
The rooms were spacious and clean. The property was elegant and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. Nothing really negative. The location is a little bit weird since it's next to a ciment factory, but that did not have any effect on our stay.
Nice hotel, good service.
Early Bird price, free computer to use It would have been nice to have public transit information sent with confirmation, e.g., taking train from Frankfurt airport disembarking in Mannheim at the Hauptbahnhof stop and tram directions from Hauptbahnhof to the hotel, including tram multi-use ticket fares.
The cleanliness, location and comfort of bed I did not like the clear bathroom door. Not enough privacy for use.
breakfast was great parking at extra payment 12 euro, bed little bit too soft
The welcoming was good and the hotel very clean. Decoration was nice. Very good situation in the city. I had to wait so long for check in, the door of the bathroom was transparent and the room very small for the price I pay. Unfortunately they had to work at 10 am very close to my room and so I left earlier than I thought because the noise was impossible to stand!
the facilities, the shower in particular...
The location was great to get to the centrum, staff was friendly and the hotel was very clean. Food not available on the weekends and no room service or fridge in the room.
This was our second stay at a well run hotel in a central position that is perfect for both sightseers and those who have business in the city area. On both occasions we have been troubled by overheating of the hotel in quite mild weather. It seems silly, and wasteful, to have to use the room air conditioner to counter the central heating, which we have found particularly overpowering in hallways. Breakfast is expensive at 15E when you cannot put it on the office expense account. Better to eat out.
The hotel was new, so the interior was modern too. I like that. One of my reasons to choose for Mercure Hotel mannheim am Rathaus. The temperature of the shower was fluctuating a lot. Then cold, then hot. Although I knew that there was no bath in the room, I always like to have a bath instead of only a shower. Censurship on the internetcomputer is something I canNOT appreciate. I could not visit some gay orientated sites. I do not like that at all that Mercure decides what is appropiate to see on the internet or not. I felt discriminated by that!
I loved this hotel, modern big clean rooms, excellent breakfast, excellent value. After staying in some hotels in e.g. Denmark that were double the price and half as good, I really enjoyed this place. Only snag - a bit far from the train station. But this hotel is great.
Modern and nice hotel, good location! Nice staff, good value for money!
