With a good navigation system, the Birkenhof is easy to find. There is even enough parking when hotel guests must compete with event attendees. The hotel is set in the countryside amongst farms and horse stables. The residential edge of Eppelheim is nearby, but the business district. limited as it is, in a long walk further. This appears to be... More

Excellent facilities, very good dining room, good breakfast. We were visiting Heidelberg, with a car, and wanted somewhere comfortable to stay which wasn't too expensive. The Birkenhof was perfect. Fifteen mins outside Heidelberg among horse paddocks, clean, friendly staff. No lift, but we found the stairs easy. Would go back there.

We had two very quiet, comfortable rooms, though it was a challenge getting up the stairs with all our luggage (no lift). The man at the front desk was very helpful, however, and carried my heavy bag for me. My room had a balcony, but my partner had only windows. The hotel itself is quite rural and requires a car...

Birkenhof is a nice hotel with friedly owners and employees. For my taste its to far from Heidelberg that I was visiting so even with a nice big room and a comfy bed, one night was enough for me.
