“Excellent location!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

If you like walking everywhere, this is the hotel to book. Every place is within walking distance. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Room 19 is spacious with A/C and a big shower room. All the toiletries are included, hairdryer too. Breakfast is served till 11 am and you certainly don't need lunch if you help yourself to all the food available, buffet style. Only a few parking places at 10 euros a night with tights spaces. I gave it a 4 stars because it is really difficult to find, tucked away in a pedestrianised area. It is quiet and the restaurant is excellent but you can find others nearby which are not so expensive if you are on a tighter budget. I would go back there as we really enjoyed the vicinity of the river, the museums, the restaurants and all the shops.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 19 if you like to sleep with an opend window as ti opens on a corridor, facing another ro...

This is an excellent choice if you want to stay right in downtown Heidelberg. This means that driving there is a bit tricky--the hotel does give proper instructions, though--and the early bird (meaning guest arriving around noon) may catch one of the few parking spaces right next to the recessed hotel entrance. The rooms are fine, large, and breakfast is more than adequate.

Small hotel on a quiet side street, the place was perfect for me. The room was very large, and the bathroom was a good size. The air conditioner worker very well!! Breakfast was meats, cheeses, breads, cereals, and fruit. I arrived later than I had planned on, so I checked in at the restaurant attached. It worked just fine for me. I would definitely stay here again! It is close to everything, and only a €10 cab ride from the train station.

The Gasthaus Hotel Backmulde stands out as one of our two favorite hotels during our fourteen day stay in Germany. From the moment we were warmly greeted at the front desk to the delicious fresh breakfast each morning, everything about this hotel is a standout. We had a large room on the third floor (there are a LOT of stairs) with windows that had a wonderful view of Heidelberg. The room was clean, comfortable, with a large bathroom and we even had air conditioning (a rarity in Germany). The breakfast was delicious with tons of fresh fruit, cereals, meat, cheeses and bread. Every employee we came in contact with was very solicitious and friendly. The hotel is a block from a city bus stop and less than a block from the longest shopping street in Germany, what more could you ask for? I could not say enough wonderful things about this hotel and our stay there. We would definitely stay at Hotel Backmulde if we return to Heidelberg.

I was invited to give a talk at Heidelberg University. The Uni put me up at this hotel, so I had no expectations. The hotel is lovely. It is simple and clean! The breakfasts were very good and not to be missed. They have wonderful breads and soft poached eggs. If you are looking for something basic, simple, clean, and quintessentially German. I would stay here.

Room Tip: There is also suppose to be a very good restaurant right in front of this hotel. Unfortunately I did...

An excellent stay overall. The staff are very helpful and nothing is to much trouble - they even spent some time moving large plant pots around so we could park our motorcycles safely.
Room was very clean and tidy and the breakfast excellent quality and almost unbelievable value for money at 5 Euros.

One point to mention is that the hotel is located in a pedestrian area and finding it, even with satnav, is quite difficult. Maybe worth ringing for instructions if you are booked in.

We could not have picked a better location, within the old town and steps from the main pedestrian shopping strasse, the castle and the bridge. Location alone made me swoon, but the hotel itself was lovely, clean and cozy and the staff, particularly Christina (spelling?) at the front desk, warm and helpful. Our room overlooked a courtyard and was a peaceful oasis after lots and lots of walking. It may sound corny, but I really don't remember the last time I slept so soundly.

Breakfast was included and just lovely. Coffee was available all day and night as well as a nicely stocked little fridge with refreshments on the honor system. We did not have a chance to dine at the restaurant for dinner, but from all we heard it is amazing.

Don't think twice about booking here, it's wonderful.
