The room was spacious and very clean. All the amenities and facilities were functioning. There was an abundance of towels - not the usual 1 towel plus 1 face towel. The breakfast was very good and had a variety of options. The staff are friendly and all speak English.

This is a good solid place to stay if you are in Heilbron. The staff are professional and friendly Despite being old the rooms are very clean and well maintained. I found the mattress to be uncomfortable but not too unbearable. As one would expect the food in the dinning room was on the expensive side and did not offer... More

I have been to Insel Hotel 3 times during July and stayed there 3 nights every week. I must say it is one of the best hotels in Heilbronn. It is not cheap or affordable but if you are on a business trip and would lile to have sauna/pool/fitness room/drink coffe on a river, Insel is the right place to... More

Quiet Clean Good location Expensive room rates for what it is but comparable in the area. Housekeeping staff a bit lacklustre . Forgot to clean room first night. Didn't take laundry another night?! Reception staff great. Would I stay again? Not at this price if I could have a choice.

We were traveling toward France and spent the night after our long flight from US. The hotel is very clean, has a good location, and the restaurant is amazing! They went beyond our expectations to prepare our meals.

Second time to Heilbronn, and both times stayed at the Insel. This hotel is very comfortable. Clean rooms, with good maid service. The restaurant offers a basic European breakfast. Good, but not great. Biggest compaint - the bar closes early and they really don't cater to the clientele at the bar. The wifi in the room was 'iffy'. I was... More

Asked for a room overlooking river away from main street which was granted on high floor, nice spacious room. Comfy bed, good furniture, smallish bathroom but all worked. First morning no hot water but apparently a city wide issue. Nice Breakfast, friendly staff. sauna and pool really good.stayed on business so no time to explore city or surroundings.

Really good hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Bed is great and pillows like fresh whipped cream. Although it's typical German old fashion style. Breakfast is ok, nothing special. Bun are the really nice fresh crispy ones. Overall can recommend for bizz stay
