Difficult one this - we have returned from a four-week tour of Europe and have had fabulous accommodation wherever we have been and this place definitely has strengths: young woman on reception fabulous and gave us sound advice, directions and moved her car for us on the car park. Lovely room for breakfast and, again, great service and choice. We did book this one on a cheaper rate and so do be aware, as another reviewer has mentioned, that room 19 seems to be that budget room - clean and good facility but you have to keep the curtains closed at all times as it looks out onto a corridor with someone else's room door across from the window. I have never seen anything like it before to be honest. Did it affect our stay or sleep - not really no but I would not like to stay more than a night in it.
The one aspect that would stop us returning is access to the car park - it is a nightmare to find and we ended up driving down a one-way street! Very tight spaces and you have to reverse out backwards onto the road (it isn't a busy road though). This is obviously not the fault of the hotel and little could be done to improve it I am sure but arriving with a car does take some thinking about.
If you are not driving, then ideal location - few mins walk round the corner to great place/city.

Room Tip: Request to not have room 19 if booking on a budget!

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)! You have an option to gain some weight (if desirable of course) during nice breakfast in the morning. Finally, the prices aren't cheap but reasonable.

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 fruit, cheeses, cold cuts, rolls, cereals, yogurt, and much more. Beverages included juice, tea, coffee, and cappuccino to order. We never got bored with the breakfast, even after five days.

This is a charming and well-located hotel which I can happily recommend.

Room Tip: We had a nice view of the church tower at night from room 30 on the 3rd floor (lift goes only as far...

Centrally located with a family owned flavor (but not sure that's the case). Staff is helpful. Room was clean and spacious. Breakfast buffet is excellent with fresh food. When the restaurant is open, concierge moves to restaurant (internally accessible). I would come back.

We went for a gourmet dinner on our 29-year wedding anniversary. We sat outside i the backyard which also was at parking area. The waiter was polite and seemed a little insecure. But he contributed to the idea of an romantic evening a la Lady and the Tramp. The restaurant gave us a small dish with olives and bread on the house. The starters we selected, surprised us positively. So did the main course and the dessert. The coffee was at bit strong. All in all a nice romantic evening with good food, wine and service. Had the settings been more private and the waiter more experienced it would have been close to a gourmet dinner.
