This is a perfect choice for the traveller who wants to stay in the atmosphere of a hotel related to Heidelberg`s prime time in the 19th century when the town got its reputation as the home of the "Philosopher".
The hotel is fantastically located in the middle of the Old Town at the end of the main shopping street, opposite the famous "Holy Ghost Church". The train station is a 20 minute walk away.
The bedrooms are all individually furnished in 3 different styles; modern, contemporary and traditional. The modern rooms do not reflect the style and age of the building but are furnished to a very high but simple standard.
The facade of the hotel is very impressive being built in the 17th century in beautiful Renaissance style.
The restaurant is a real feature of this spectacular hotel. It is furnished in a very rustic style with the use of lots of dark wood, antlers and old weapons. It has a high arched ceiling and is lovely and cool during the summer whilst being warm and cosy in winter.
In the lobby and indeed throughout the hotel the furnishing is very traditional and many antiques can be found.
