“Out in the sticks near Heidelberg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2011

The hotel is in the middle of no-where in farmland about 5km out of Heidelberg. Thank heavens for my trusty Tom-Tom. Worth finding, however, as it was a delightful overnight stop and convenient for a visit to beautiful Heidelberg. Spotlessly clean and well appointed, the rooms were a reasonable size and traditional in a modern sort of way (if that makes sense!). Bed was comfortable - no air-con though. Proprietor speaks good English and was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was typical continental style - fruit, cheese, cereals, boiled eggs, cold meats cheese and nice bread and rolls served in a bright conservatory area. Wife of proprietor was serving but you'll need a few words of German, ideally. Very pretty outside with lots of flowers, you feel you are really out in the country. Free wi-fi, but I couldn't get a connection.

A pleasant change from big chain hotels

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2010

We were referred to the Birkenhof after we were unable to book a second night at our other Heidelberg area hotel. What a lovely surprise! This hotel is literally in the middle of farm land...near the village. It was very reasonable and we couldn't have asked for much more. The breakfast room is bright and pleasant (outstanding table linens!) and the food plentiful and varied. The management referred us to a wonderful restaurant within the village of Eppelheim (the Golden something-or-other) and that dinner was also outstanding. Lovely little Heidelberg suburb and a great place to stay if you won't want to stay in the middle of the very busy city.
