Hotel Terrassencafe Vierburgeneck
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Neckarsteinach
Reviewed 14 June 2012

We were traveling to Heidelberg by car and we are so glad we decided to stay not in the city itself but in the nearby Neckarsteinach. The village is set on a river bank, with the 4 castles (partly ruins) on the forested hills above it. What a beauty!It is very quiet and pastoral and only 15 minutes drive to Heidelberg. The hotel itself is very basic, but the room was spacious and comfortable with a balcony facing the river (all the rooms in the hotel have such a balcony). The only thing we did not like was the breakfast, which I think was really poor. But in general it is a very good value for money and we are really happy with our stay there.

Now that the venerable Hotel Schiff has been turned into apartments, this hotel is your only chance to stay right on the Neckar River close to Heidelberg. It has a fantastic location on the banks of the river just out of the village of Neckarsteinach, and about 15 kms from Heidelberg – with easy access by car or train. It is a beautiful and quiet location. Barges ply the river, providing an endlessly interesting insight into the economics of the Neckar region, and the maize fields and apple orchards on the opposite bank, capped by the village of Dilsberg on the summit, make for a beautiful outlook. The hotel is family owned and run. The restaurant is very nice, and we also recommend the restaurant Schiff a bit further along the road, in Neckarsteinach itself.

Booked this following good reviews and must agree with them. I've stayed in Heidelberg many times and a lovely place it is, but if you have a car, parking and getting about is hard work. The good thing about the location is that it is outside of town, in a quiet rural setting with ample safe easy parking. However the city is easy to get in an out of - you can take a bus or one of the regular boats from the nearby terminal into town - easy and fun.

Breakfast good and very generous, Dinner very good and such agreeable host and staff - very anxious to please and oblige. The manager / chef carried bags upstairs despite our protestations and offerred to extend the restaurant hours because we were late arrivals.

Excellent housekeeping and delightful river views - the hotel garden runs down to the the wide Neckar and there is a broad river footpath running right into the city - pedestrains and cyclists only. Only minor criticism would be that one of our party of 4 found his bed on the hard side - though he's a bit of a softee...

I booked this on the strength of previous reviews and was very happy with this choice. We wanted to stay close enough for an easy drive to Frankfurt airport, but with a rural feel. This definitely ticked the boxes.
Easy access to and from the motorway through Heidelberg.
Service from Josef was fantastic, from initial communications via email to welcoming us and ensuring we were well looked after in the hotel and cafe.
Location is beautiful, scenic river and countryside as well as easy walking distance to local towns. Bike/walking/running trails through the area both sides of the river.
Room is large and airy, one suggestion is that they need slightly thicker curtains as we could still see the moon shining through when drawn. Good sized bathroom.
Excellent cafe/restaurant that seemed well patronised.
Definitely recommend this as an option close to (but far from bustle of) Frankfurt.
Wifi available, but not free.

We didn't stay at the hotel but enjoyed a great dinner on the terrace. Beautiful views make this a great location. The food is reasonably priced and tastes just as good as the view. Work up an appetite with a quick, or long, hike across the road and visit a couple castle ruins. The chef speaks English and makes delicious cakes that aren't too sweet.

This hotel, frankly, is incomperable. I don't even know where to start, but, consider the wondreful Neckar River, you just had a meal in their clasic, tip-top restaurant, and you go to your room to look over the river, see the bucolic beauty of the region, and listen to the soothing sounds of the barges and boats that pass by. I have been there 5 times, and I will be back shortly, becasue this is Germany, and travel, at its very best. The staff is examplary, the food is just indescribable, and the ambiance is on another plane. This place is as good as it gets. Trust me.

We have been coming here for years. We stay here the night before flying back to the USA (45 minutes drive to the Frankfurt Airport). About 8 miles east of Heidelberg on the Nekkar River. This stand alone (between towns) family owned hotel is outstanding. Every room has a balcony, on the river. You look across the river to fields; to the left a castle. CNN, Kleenex, no washcloths, Rm 7 has a double bed, tub/shower, table, couch which appears to be a single pull out bed and two chairs. Rm 6 only a shower but everything else the same. Squeeze bottles of soap. Single with breakfast 62 euros. In house restaurant 6PM -8PM (closed Tuesdays but check) with an outside terrace. We reserve via internet. Wi-fi is a T-Mobile Hotspot 8 euro for 60 minutes.
