Weisser Bock
Ranked #34 of 75 Hotels in Heidelberg
Reviewed 14 June 2013

My wife and I searched the web for our first trip to Heidelberg. We settled on the Weisser Bock because of the location and great restaurant review. We were not disappointed, the room, a bit small but very comfortable, the staff displayed wonderful customer service and were truly interested in our comfort and helpful in making our visit memorable. The restaurant was a bit expensive but the meals were absolutely grand. We could not have had a better vacation. I highly recommend this hotel which helped me understand the rich culture of this city.

Room Tip: Top floor away from the street

Stayed here for 2 nights Monday & Tuesday - didn't appreciate Monday was a public holiday so Heidelberg was pretty quiet!
Hotel is very quaint and "olde worlde" German but our room at the front was quite elegantly furnished a nice size and was spotlessly clean. We ate in the Restaurant on our first night, taking advice from Trip Advisor reviews and the food was fantastic. This is not a cheap restaurant (120 euros for 2 with wine) but was 90% full on a Monday night so something must be right. The service was attentive and helpful without being overbearing as so often is the case in hotel restaurants and the dining room is like a quaint folk museum.
This is more a restaurant with rooms than a hotel - the reception desk is in the kitchen! The weather was not good on our trip so there was not much street activity at night but we had to keep the windows closed nevertheless to enjoy a quite night. We had a room on the first floor with a lovely friendly chamber maid, another small touch which contributed to an enjoyable stay here.

The location is somehow perfect.
First: Right in the romantic old town from which we did quite a lot of exploring on foot in the mornings and afternoons (do not forget the “Philosophenweg” on the other side of the river Neckar). The bus stop is very close with direct connection to the main railway station (about 10-15 minutes on bus). The room was lovely, the bath room ok and the whole property is a charming old building.
Little minus: The elevator’s space is tight and the stairs are steep.
Never experienced before: The reception desk is somewhat special: It's in the kitchen which is - great!
Much appreciated: The staff is friendly and welcoming, professional and somewhat typically efficient. Great restaurant both for breakfast and dinner. The bar is superb: atmosphere and drinks (try the local sparkling …).
Needless to say, for the price you pay, and the fact that is very centrally located, I would say it is worth a try. Try the special arrangement: We will be going back.

The Weisser Bock is basically a good restaurant with additional rooms to stay overnight. The location is in the centre just one street away from the main "Hauptstrasse". The rooms are quite noisy, as you either have a window to the back courtyard, where you can hear (and smell!) the kitchen, or to the street, which is very noisy in the night from tourists.

I would visit the Weisser Bock only for a good lunch or dinner. The hotel rooms do not make sense, as they are too small, quite outdated and too noisy. When we stayed there, there was a larger (male only) group singing and screaming till 3:30 in the morning.

The service is also a bit "hectic" as the staff is mainly busy serving larger groups in the restaurant, and not hotel guest "minded". We always felt we were disturbing them in managing the dinner groups.

Really not, what you want in your holiday. So if you want to enjoy Heidelberg, stay outside the old town, and go there only for dinner or a nice wine.

So visit the Weisser Bock for dinner - they have great wines, good fish and wonderful meat. Unfortunately, they only have two larger restaurant rooms, which makes it quite a noisy place.

Room Tip: You can ask for a room in the top floor - this might be a bit less noisy.

I've always enjoyed the restaurant but on this trip I stayed in the hotel also. The rooms are basic but very elegant and comfortable - hard wood floors, free wifi, cozy lighting. The restaurant is the best in HD in my opinion. The place has bags of character and never compromises
On authenticity, quality and style to chase for one off tourist dollars which makes this place popular for locals as well as visitors. The menu is great and wine list even better. Best of all - led by Daniel, the team who can't do enough for their guests. In my case, I arrived in the small hours yet someone waited for me to arrive (this is a small boutique hotel after all ). To cut a long story short I was warmly welcomed even outside of normal hours. can't wait to come back in December when Goose and pumpkin soup is the mainstay. Can't recommend this place enough.

Staff was very helpful. There was some street noise at night. In typical German fashion, the maids folded my clothes. I was staying alone and it worked well. I'd recommend the WEisser Bock if you don't need anything fancy.

We stayed here for only one night but wished our second night in Heidlelberg had been here too. The hotel is very well run, with friendly staff and nothing is too much trouble. The restaurant was excellent and used by locals as well as tourists. We had a really nice meal with very attentive staff. - Top Marks!
