very convenient, good value for money, nice breakfast
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.
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?).
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.
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!
Great city; very friendly and convenient to all. Also has great beer! All good
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
Breakfast buffet. Very good and much better than similarly priced breakfast from Leonardo hotels nearby.
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
Modern, comfortable, well-maintained About ten minutes walk to the old town: for sightseeing something closer might have been better.
I had to stay in a smoking room despite having notified weeks in advance that i was a non smoker! very displeasant experience!
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).
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.
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'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
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
Nice and clean room. Easy access to public transportation. There are restaurants and shops when you walk across the street.
The central location, and elegant feel. Breakfast price. Although the food was great, I felt it was overpriced.
The room was spacious, the breakfast was very good.
It was clean and quiet. Room was small as compared to others I stayed in. Did not like twin beds separated. Breakfast was good.
Staff was very hepful and polite, hotel was very clean
the breakfast guests have to pay for the htel parking
confusion and expensive brekfast expensive brekfast 15 euro person in not came again
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.
It is clean and quiet. There is no lift. We have to carry our luggage to go upstairs.
Staff very friendly and efficient Poor location if you want to go into the city
you need a car if you stay there...
Personnel were very helpful, and breakfast was very good. No elevator, therefore not handicap friendly; outrageous prices for internet use.
My unexpectedly early check in was accomodated nicely Nothing. Everything was okay.
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
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
Room was decent, staff were friendly and helpful. All extras (breakfast, swimming pool, internet, etc) were separately priced, and rather expensive.
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
Good location Very dated hotel interior and exterior
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
Outstanding restaurant in which we had a superb meal and received excellant recommendations for both food and wine
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.
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)
Selection of Hotels in Mannheim is small - this is the most convenient and comfortable one.
spacious rooms, very modern and luxury bathroom, wooden floors (clean)
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.
Very quiet ! Not enough international TV channels
inside architecture and space proportions, deco color schemes quality of materials and outfits Very pleasant for the connoisseur
Pleasent location and facilities
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.
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.
Good location, nice clean room and kind reception staff. It was slight difficult to find a car parking area. Hopefully bath.
It's location was perfect oberlooking the old town which was just a 5 minute walk away. The hotel itself is excellently presented and the staff are extremely professional. It offers a spa which we didn't use, rear gardens with a summer house and jaccuzi again we didn't have time to take advantage of these facilities. Room very comfortable and clean. The fact that the carpark attached to the hotel was charged to you at at rate of 15 Euro's per day. It is incredibly small and I feel that the charge was unneccessary given the cost of the hotel.
Quality suroundings, amenities & location.
it was a marvelous hotel very fine designed which covered all my expectations , small but fine . tip ask for a suite over viewing the river !
The hotel has an amazing view over Heidelberg and includes stunning rooms and really friendly staff. It's a little on the pricey side
Great location, just a few minutes walk from the centre. Good personally service and excellent decor.
Beautiful & attentive to details decoration; outstanding & proactive guest service;
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.
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.
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.
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
Brand new facilities, big rooms. Logical rate for wireless internet access. Rather poor breakfast.
Freindly staff Small Rooms.
Modern rooms. Simple and efficient.
Very good service and friendly staff No
Excellent location, large comfortable room. Church bells rang every 15 minutes throughout the night. Probably unavoidable anywhere in the city.
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.
Sitting out side and people watching while I was drinking a Pils
The location is perfect! Clean rooms and helpful staff.
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!
Location is perfect and the historical value of the building is extremely impressive!
was not told about extre chg for breakfast
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.
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.
location of hotel initially trying to find hotel; limited access through pedestrian zone
Relativly Cheap The Bed and pillows are not comfortable
Loved the old town near by.
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...
Facilities, ie sauna, were very good. Restaurant was a bit pricey.
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
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!!!!!!!
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.
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.
In general OK No gym at the hotel, a bit difficult to park
We battled to find the address
Excellent position, nice staff and comfortable room. Very good bakery really near the hotel with buttered pretzels!
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.
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
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.
Everything was great. Great location.
Overall cleaness of the hotel Tv was not working.
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.
great location, the room is big enough for us, and the internet work very will.
I thought that the staff was tremendously helpful and very knowledgeable. I enjoyed breakfast and the overall cleanliness of the hotel.
The hotel was conveniently located. The room was very large and clean. Overall we thought it was a great value.
Friendly staff with excellent command of multiple languages Nice shower with great water pressure
Staff, Great attention to all my requests, especially Karina from the restaurant, excellent attention and kindness to speak in my lenguage (spanish). Small tv.
I hope to came to germanty and stay a gine in this hotel
Gym was not really a gym, pool was very small.
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.
Location Air conditioning not working
Everything was great
The employees and facility. Josaphine at the reception desk is wonderful. Everything was super
Lovely restaurant with excellent food and service. Rooms were very nice. Rooms were very warm the first night so difficult to sleep
Staff was very courteous, friendly and helpful.
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 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.
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).
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.
Good value for money, good size rooms, comfortable beds, quiet location and a very nice restaurant.
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.
I loved that our room had a balcony that looked onto the courtyard NA
Room was so beautiful! Staffs were so kind. no freezer...
Nice hotel, good service.
Location, English speaking staff Had to pay for parking
You have to pay to use the internet, that is so dumb when it is so simple for the hotel to provide. Also, having so many English speakers visiting the hotel, there was only one channel for English and that was CNN.
The location was great. There were plenty of stores and restaurants in the local area. The pool was a lot of fun. It was a little difficult to find the hotel. The beds were too hard.
The location is perfect,rooms are very clean and buffet breakfast is excellent.I found it was very good value for money and I would recommend this hotel to everyone
Nice pool; great location for shopping; clean, comfortable room Parking garage is a bit small
Most important is one key per person. Not one between two. Room was big, clean and comfortable. Central location of hotel. One very small detail. Shower would not get hotter than luke warm. Not a big deal.
Staff was vey friendly. There was a mouse running around the lobby and bar area. The staff was aware and seemed undisturbed.
Nice straff and the breakfast was excellent. The hotel was good situated in the citycentrum
My room was nice, quiet and clean. Nice furniture and bathroom. Excellent location, only a few steps away from the Wasserturm, pedestrian zone, shops, cinemas, etc. I walked there from the station, so this is also very near. Staff was professional and friendly. Maybe bathroom supplies should be IN the room, without guests having to ask for them. I arrived quite late and really didn't want to wait for someone bringing them to me, and all I found in the bathroom was shower gel and soap. Only German channels on TV (but pay TV was available). Finally, for those prices maybe a small breakfast should be inluded in the price (18 euros is way too much).
Customer service was excellent and the room as you would expect from a Holiday Inn (or hotel of similar type).
Elevator and Escalator was not working upon arrival. Had to walk up two flights of stairs with bags in order to check in.
