We celebrated our engagement by staying at the Hotel Hackteufel in beautiful Heidelberg.
We chose to stay here because it is a small and intimate place located in the centre of the historic town. It has the character and charm of what I imagine a Bavarian inn to be like.
Our room, possibly number 12, was an attic room. It had plenty of space, a decent bathroom with a bath and shower over it, lovely exposed wooden beams forming the apex of the roof and a gorgeous view over other rooftops toward the castle. We thought it was charming. The room had air-conditioning, which I was very glad about. Be warned - some of the other rooms do not have it.
We read reviews warning about noise levels emanating from the busy street. I am pleased to report we had no problems with noise at all, though I could see it possibly being noisier from other rooms.
Breakfast was pleasant. It was a traditional German breakfast with cereals, fruit and cold meats served in the wonderful and eccentrically decorated restaurant.
The beds were reasonably comfortable but the pillow and sheets felt like polyester. This could be improved in my opinion.
The hotel had lots of character and charm and we will definitely visit again.
