"Quiet Luxury hotel with great charm"
Great little inn within easy walking distance to old town. The house has a lot of history as an Inn, going back to the 1400's. Wonderful suite with antique furniture.

"Very nice hotel"
The hotel was very nice and our room was fancy and spacious. The staff was super nice and provided us with drink and snack during check in. Decent location too, not too far of a walk to old town.

As a long-time resident of Heidelberg, it was great to stay for a short weekend vacation. I have always loved the restaurant at Die Hirschgasse, but never had the opportunity to stay at the hotel. I would highly recommend it. The staff was warm and welcoming and extremely flexible. Compared to many hotels in Heidelberg, it is very quiet. I really like the decor of the hotel, every detail has been thought of. Breakfast was really great and served to me. The location is wonderful if you don't mind walking to get downtown. It is only a 10-15 minute walk to the bridge. I like the location because it is just a quick walk up the hill to the woods and the Philosopher's way. Overall, it was a lovely stay and I would go back again. I got a preview of some of the other rooms and they were nice too.

"Charming hotel and quiet location"
This hotel is a little gem. We stayed for two nights this summer and wished we could have stayed for longer. The rooms were quiet, clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. All of them spoke perfect English. The breakfasts were plentiful and a gastronomic delight. The hotel is located in a quiet location and within walking distance of the old town. Easy parking was a benefit for us because we were touring around Germany. We would definitely stay here again.

"Wish we could have stayed longer"
We only had a brief stay at this fabulous hotel near the centre of old Heidelberg. The rooms are some of the most beautiful we have ever used. The location is excellent on a quiet hill overlooking the river within easy walking distance of the old centre. The staff are attentive and superbly trained and the owners really involved in ensuring you have an unforgettable experience.

"A little disappointing at the price"
Decorated by Laura Ashley in the 1980's and unchanged since so the hotel has a dated chintzy look. Taps, basins tiles etc are old and worn, it was far less luxurious than the other hotels on our trip yet cost more. Food was also expensive (dry goulash on a bowl of noodles 24 euro) and not nice. Perhaps all these things are a matter of taste and the hotel feel it worth preserving Laura's efforts - but we were both left feeling underwhelmed. Our room was promised to have a city or mountain view but through the net curtains all we could see was a narrow street and a garage block with some apartments that looked right at us - no view at all and a bit dark. It could be that Heidelberg is all expensive. The staff were pleasant and the place is certainly historic and about a 12 minute walk to town.

"Lyxigt i Heidelberg"
Hotellet är medlem i Small Luxury Hotels of the World och ligger vackert beläget i grön och lummig villamiljö en bit upp från floden Neckar. Man promenerar in till Altstadt på 10-15 min. Rekommenderar en svit; väl värt pengarna. Gratis parkering på gården och fritt wi-fi som fungerar hyfsat. Frukosten kostar en del, men är riklig och underbart god: T ex omelette à la minute, färskpressad apelsinjuice, fräsch fruktsallad och frasiga croissanter. Man kan antingen äta lunch/middag i Mensurstube eller i Gourmetmatsalen (har en stjärna i Guide Michelin) Personlig mycket god service. Rekommenderas varmt!

"가까이하기엔 너무 먼 그대..."
완벽한 침구 청결이 여행중 오랜만에 숙면하게 한 곳. 그러나 가격 대비 조식 불포함은 황당함. 시내까지 걷기에도 약간 먼 느낌. 마크트웨인이 머물었던 숙소라며 고색창연함을 상표가치로 여기는 곳.

"Freundlicher Service, sympathische Lage"
Gebäude mit historischem Touch. Service und Freundlichkeit sehr gut. Bei schönem Wetter tolle Aussenterrasse für Dinner. Guter französischer Sommelier. Zimmer "very old English style" etwas überstellt, weiche Matrazen. Etwas weniger Tischen und Tigelchen würde dem angestrebten Laura Ashley Look kaum Abbruch tun, aber die Zimmer grosszügiger erscheinen lassen. Ohne Air-conditioning war der zur Verfügung gestellte Ventilator extreme wichtig zum Schlafen in der Tropennacht vom 4.7.2015.

"Ein Hotel zum erholen"
Das Hotel befindet sich ca. 100 Meter vom Nekar entfernt, in einer sehr ruhigen Sackgasse und man ist zu Fuß in 15 Min. am Anfang der Altstadt. Auch kann man eine Stunde, oder mehrere Stunden (je nach Belieben) in der Botanik wandern. Man hat Kneipen, Restaurants, Museen und natürlich das Schloss in der unmittelbaren Umgebung. Das Essen in der Hirschgasse ist ausgesprochen gut- aber das sagen ja auch die Auszeichnungen aus. Die Suiten sind groß und sehr gemütlich eingerichtet und man spürt in jedem Moment und auf jedem Meter, die Ausstrahlung, die von diesem Hotel ausgeht. Seit 1472.... Und die Herzlichkeit der Belegschaft, die man bekommt, ist außerordentlich Familiär.

"小巧的精品酒店"
酒店环境优雅舒适,走精品酒店的路线,房间不大但很温馨,很欧洲,特别是房间的布置和软装。更值得一提的是酒店的早餐一定要吃,食材新鲜,23欧的价格物超所值,而且小孩免费。酒店地理位置虽然离老城较远,但沿着Necker河漫步10几分钟就到,还能欣赏河边的美景,不错。就是价格小贵,但想想被欧洲酒店之星评选为五星级,这个价格也可接受。

"Preisleistungsverhältnis stimmt hier nicht"
Schöne Gasträume, beim Frühstück fanden wir jedoch Spinnenweben in den Ecken der Fenster. Sehr alte Zimmer , die dringend renoviert gehören. Das Hotel möchte etwas besonderes darstellen, es gibt jedoch einige Mängel. Zuerst wurde das bestellte Bett für unseren Sohn vergessen, am nächsten Morgen wurde er dann beim Frühstück vergessen. Bett und Teller wurden zwar zügig nachgefordert, schön ist jedoch anders. Kinder bis 12 werden beim Frühstück nicht berechnet, als unser Sohn dann aber keinen Orangensaft und auch keinen Obstsalat bekam, dachten wir : Besser den halben Preis für Kinder berechnen und allen Familienmitgliedern das Gleiche hinstellen. Ist netter !

"Disappointment"
We chose this hotel based on the excellent reputation of the gourmet restaurant. Upon arrival we were informed that the restaurant was closed for two weeks as the staff were on holiday. Instead it was suggested to eat in the "stube". The food was good and the service excellent, but the menu was extremely restricted and sadly the wine list over priced. we were subsequently informed that the Sommelier was also on holiday. Our room had seen better days. It is certainly in need of refurbishment. Carpets in hotels need changing regularly! Also, there was no A/C in the room, which in a hotel of this price category is unacceptable. Our concerns were understood by the reception staff. However, despite leaving contact details for the management regarding our findings they have not seen the need to take up contact with us. This hotel has a long and colorful history. Unfortunately the renovations during the 70s have not added to the ambience.

"A unique hotel with Mark Twain amongst former visitors in a convenient Heidelberg location."
01/26/16 Chris-and-Joan Cheshire
Hotel managed by the owners who were ready to talk about the area and give advice and explain the historical significance of the building. Easy walking distance from the Old Town and the Old Town train station and just a short step away from the famous Philosopher's Way. Lovely breakfast in rooms full of the student duelling history of Heidelberg.

"Historic and Interesting Hotel"
12/08/15 RWSII Marietta, GA
This hotel is known for its history and its delicious food. You do need to make a reservation early though, as it does book up. The parking here is a bit of a mess and I am still not sure how they accommodate more than 5-6 cars? The hotel and service was fantastic and I would recommend the hotel for that reason. Mark Twain stayed there and it is close to the old town. I was a little disappointed that it was a 10 min walk to the old town and then another 10min walk to the castle. I did it well enough, but I did think for the older crowd this would be difficult. So, if choosing this hotel you need to do it for the food and historic value. If you are trying to be close tot he old town and the action down there you need to pick a different hotel. I would also say that the breakfast was equally as nice and it is top notch!

"Perfect base for expedition to Heidelburg Castle"
12/01/15 Polyolbion A Oxford, United Kingdom
We chose this hotel because much as we were looking forward to Heidelburg the more central locations looked like they had the potential to be quite noisy, even so we wanted to experience something of the town's traditional student hostelries and so Hotel Die Hirschgasse was perfect. We were working up at the castle and the walk down into town across the bridge and up the hill was a real pleasure. The hotel itself is almost as steeped in history as the castle and we loved the ambience. The welcome was warm and the service efficient. We ate in the German side of the restaurant (when in Germany etc.) and found the food terrific, we particularly enjoyed the pike, a new experience for us. Breakfast was similarly great with plenty of fresh produce. Our room whilst not huge was very comfortable and being on two levels with exposed beams we felt we were somewhere a bit different. The parking was a bit of a squeeze but we were happy just to be able to leave our car and walk everywhere. This hotel was a real treasure!

"My favorite of all times hotel"
11/09/15 lufkincy Lufkin, Texas
I love Heidelberg. Finding Hirschgasse was an accident. A friend suggested we should check it out. I love history and the friend told us Hirschgasse had some 500 years of history and each room was a history lesson. We decided to try it and it was wonderful. I even ended up purchasing a set of 12 of their engraved wine goblets. Over the years two have gotten broken, but when we serve wine, those are the ones we use. They have been instrumental in many fascinating tales of that Heidelberg trip. The trip was in the 1980s. Travel date was not among the options.

"charming hotel opposite the castle"
09/16/15 Hiddendips London, United Kingdom
The staff were friendly and very accommodating of our dog. The decor was very frilly (1980's) but the room was spacious and comfortable. There was, however, no view at all out of either window, looking our over a building close by at the back and the flora faced mountainside from the other window (about 4 feet away). It made the room feel slightly underground/claustraphobic despite being on the second floor. This didn't really matter, though as we were mainly there at night time. The breakfast was lovely and the staff very nice and very helpful.

"What a welcome!"
09/02/15 Becky R Dallas, Texas
The 80 year old owner met us at the door and invited us in and asked us to sit. Next thing I know, we have a glass of Prosecco in our hands and are hearing a very entertaining history of the house from the day manager! She made you feel like family. We stayed in the Salon Suite which consisted of 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and a sitting room for 2 evenings. Unfortunately, we visited Germany during a heat wave and there is no a/c in the rooms. Fans were brought up for us. The hotel is in walking distance to the village but is situated up a hill. While this hotel is very charming, the decor is little "tired". We did not eat at the hotel but the dining rooms are fantastic with so much history and tradition.

"A comfortable historic hotel"
08/23/15 fairtrader north yorkshire, england
An excellent position just 5 minutes walk from the Altstadt yet in a very quiet area. Nicely decorated, very clean and comfortable. Lovely bed linen and towels. Disappointed our view was of an upstairs courtyard, even though we booked months ahead. Maybe because we had a special of 4 nights for 3? Peking suite was actually not a suite but a large room with a desk and sofa and the bathroom could be improved. One breakfast was included in the price, it is 23€ per person and if you stay more than a couple of days you might want to go out for a change. The gourmet restaurant was closed when we were there and the Mensurstube was fully booked the first night. We did eat there once and the zander was delicious but the starters and desserts were not to our taste.
