There are two things about this hotel that may put off an American unused to old European cities. One is that the building is very old, although completely modernized, so there are various levels inside that are not all served by the lift. The other is that the parking is inside a courtyard, and the entire facility is a block... More

Great location for tourist, friendly and helpful staff, hospitable, clean, large well appointed rooms, parking available, great breakfast, fairly priced all in a historic building. They do have their own restaurant, but I did not eat there.

We spent our first night in Germany here. The room was reasonably sized for two people, and equipped with what we needed. The bedding was comfortable. Breakfast included, which makes the price quite good. The reception staff were very helpful. The best thing was the location in the Altstadt.

My wife and I stayed here for our first evening of a 2 week European tour. We decided on the interior room (#19 I believe) without an outside view and found it to be very comfortable and clean. The lack of an outside window didn't bother us since we went to bed around 9pm and wanted complete darkness to get... More

We chose to visit Heidelberg because of its history and chose Gasthaus Backmulde because it seemed charming and located in the old town. What we didn't realize was that the weekend we were there was "Heidelberg Herbst" - the city's fall festival. This meant that downtown streets were blocked off and rather than the spirit of 19th century German romanticism,... More

Stayed at this hotel for three nights. Nicely appointed good sized room (no air-conditioning, unfortunately). Hotel is literally a one minute walk from the main pedestrian zone and very close to Old Heidelberg's main attractions and tourist area. Extremely nice and helpful staff. Very good value for money.

You're dead right in the town center but it's quiet and intimate. You have an option to get airconditioned room - a must during summer months in our changing climate. You have excellent personal service, and even if you're arriving early you have a chance to get your room upon arrival without additional charge (not a common feature these days)!... More

Gasthaus Hotel Backmulde was the perfect place for our five-day visit to Heidelberg. Though just steps from the main street, our room was quiet and comfortable. There is a lift up to the 2nd floor (if your room is on the 3rd floor, you have to walk up one flight). The breakfast was exceptional with a large variety of fresh... More
