“Difficult to find”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

I thought staying in the Altstadt of Heidelberg would be so wonderful, but it is incredibly overcrowded, and I think they should ban cars from driving through there. Streets are too narrow, and many are pedestrian only, which is the case for this hotel. That meant the navigator could not locate it, and we wandered for over 2 hrs on narrow one way streets looking for it. Waitress at this hotel was unfriendly. Food not so good. Room incredibly hot with no fan until I insisted on it, then is was a 9". One window in rm. Rm about 90 degrees when we entered it. Man at the desk was friendly enough. The hotel being so difficult to find ruined Heidelberg for us. It was clean and located near tram to castle, which was why we chose it. If I could choose again, I would stay away from this area and take a bus from the other part of town. Don't take a car there!

Room Tip: Stay out of this congested area, and take a bus or taxi to the old historic part of town. It is very...

Kulturbrauerei Heidelberg Aktiengesellschaft used to be a brewery but they transformed part of it into a hotel. ( & there's still a working brewery )

Great location to hit the tram up to the Castle or to walk around the Old Town & it's especially close to the waterfront where the famous Old Bridge is

Rooms were quiet which was a surprise, given our room directly faced the brewery / bar that was full of people late into the night. Beds were comfy. Nice water pressure

There's an elevator for those schlepping heavy bags or who can't deal well w/ stairs

We were directed towards a special parking lot for hotel guests as street parking is next-to-impossible to acquire

Only minor complaint was that the room was super hot ....but we didn't think to open a window so shame on us. Also come to find out the next morning that they had had the heat turned on.....so mystery solved!

Breakfast the next morning was a nice layout of breads & rolls, cereals, sliced meats & cheeses & they will make espresso drinks to-order. Their lattes were nice & creamy!

Free wifi!

Nice hotel (with parking, very important in Heidelberg) with friendly staff. It's quite close to the river but the biggest reason we chose this location was because they were quite close to concert venue we were going to later that evening.

That said, it was clean, comfortable and the staff really do go all out to make your stay comfortable.

Great little guest house right in the heart of old town. The rooms are spacious, clean and the staff is amazing. This hotel is located on a residental area which can be confusing when you first are trying to drive there but you can drive a car there and park in the parking lot across (get the key from reception). I didn't care for breakfast and I thought there were better options in town.

We stopped in for good beer and a snack. We ended up with great beer and and great food. I will be back here again and recommend it as a great place in Heidelberg for great beer and food. Lots of people enjoying the place with us which kept it lively. Most of the tables inside are long,so plan on sharing with your new friends!

Plus side:
I stayed in room 29, which is a lovely bright double room. The staff is very friendly and eager to help. There is a mini-bar fridge, so one can buy drinks outside and keep chilled. I had a great double room that overlooked the brewery entrance. The hotel is very close from the river and the old bridge.

Downside:
The hotel can really offer free tea and ordinary coffee for hotel guests, or at least get kettles for each room. EUR10 is too expensive for the breakfast. No hot options, just cold meat, cheese, bread, yoghurt, muesli ect.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 29, which has a view of the hotel entrance and restaurant

I found the restaurant overpriced and the service lacking. The restaurant required our group to pre-order our food with no apparent result. The waitress still took everyone's order prolonging the wait for our meal. I was denied a regular glass of water--the true mark of a poorly-run establishment. The German menu contained a bratwurst and sauerkraut selection that did not appear on the English menu.
