"Excellent Cozy Boutique Hotel"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Nov 3, 2012
Room was excellent - very modern and obviously renovated recently. neighborhood was quaint, comfortable, walkable and safe. Breakfast was a good continental breakfast. Be sure you take down the Hotel address if you're using a GPS since the hotel was not in the GPS POI yet. We accidently went to another "Deutscher Kaiser" which was about 15 miles away before we realized our mistake.

A great location, no need to rent a car or take a cab. If you arrive by train go outside the bahnhaff or train station into the travel info. center and buy a 24 hour train/tram/bus ticket along with a map and train schedule. Tram #5 will take you within 1 block to the hotel. The cab fare from the train station to the hotel was reasonable, it is probablly better to take a taxi first so you can get your bearings after that you can use the tram #5 or #23 this will get you to the main parts of Heidelberg including Bismarkplatz and the train station. The hotel is an older building that was totally redesigned and updated to todays standards in the interior, very modern and well done. The beds were very comfortable, the room was very spacious, good water pressure in the shower, very clean with good room service. The hotel provides a free breakfast for most plans.The restaurant was great! Good service all you can eat European buffet with plenty of differnt types of bread and coffee, cafe alate or expresso with plenty of fresh juices. I highly recommend this hotel!!
This is the only European hotel where we washed our clothes and it was not expensive. Only 4 Euros per load (it was always 2 loads). All other european hotels charged seems like 10 times more for same service. Location is great because it is close to train station and walk distance to old town. Negatives: nearby drunks have a place to spend their time and can yell load at night at each other. But location is NOT dangerous - we stayed there with our child. Blankets are too small in size.TV was small in size with only few (I believe 4 channels) . One positive thing I forgot to mention is - the hotel has a lobby in a design of a sunroom. I used it all the time to meet my friend. I am glad they had it. I would recommend this hotel.
