BoardingHouse Heidelberg
Reviewed 14 January 2012

Went to Heidelberg on business and found the hotel very cosy. The studio was decorated balinese style which was unique. Located near the city centre with nearby restaurants, mall amd high street.

We stayed 2 nights in a "Business Class" suite in June 2011 and for €108 a night enjoyed a clean, well furnished, airy room at the back of the building with pleasant views over the adjacent leafy, backyards of adjoining houses. Located about half a kilometer from the business centre of Heidelberg and reasonably handy to the train station it is about a half hour walk into the historic centre. The area is quiet but there are several, very good, restaurants nearby. I would recommend it for those who don't mind a bit of a walk and like being away from the tourist centre.
The staff were pleasant and professional and the included breakfast also good.

It's a good furnished apartment with free wi-fi. I couldn't get the breakfast deal but the kitchenette was good so I could prepare my own breakfast. It's close to nice restaurants too (Thai, Italian, Chinese, Indian). A common self-washing facility (washer and dryer) would be helpful for people staying for long terms.

First the good points - Spacious & clean, Very close to the Bismarckplatz (city center), Free high speed internet, polite staff, well-equipped kitchenette.
Could be better - The rooms are supposed to be cleaned twice a week. If you are a staying for a long duration, they could forget to clean the room if you don't put out the "clean my room" sign on the door. Their laundry services are really expensive (Euro 7.5 for a single shirt)! There is no common washing machine available within the building which can be used. There is one laundromat near the hotel but if you have a busy schedule, you won't find it open.

Room Tip: Don't take the room with windows opening onto the main street, if you are a light sleeper.

The Boarding House is around a 20 minute walk to the old town and is close to other parts of the city that tourists don't usually explore. There is a small kitchenette - although a deal with breakfast means you eat it in the Juice bar across the road (a very good place, with a variety of cooked and cold food). The room was very hot and there's no air conditioning. We were at the back so not too noisey and with the window grills down you can open the windows at night.
Not sure if I'd stay here again - it's not cheap and if you were intent on touristy things then it's not as convenient as some other places.

the hotel was booked on internet. The communication was not good and satisfactory answers about the hotel were not provided. Even the booking invoice was controversial and we were charged more than our understanding from the invoice. The total charges for 4 person (2 adults and 2 children) were not given but there were breakups. In the end we payed 150/ night for the small cramped business studio for 4 person with 25 Euro extra asked for cleaning. We borrowed a DVD player which was without remote and charges were not told but came to know only at the time of check out. Breakfast charges were also extra. We felt paying more than it worth.
There are 3 buildings of the hotel but we were not not told which one to go and we disembark at the wrong one and then dragged the luggage to the other one. The reception was closed and then to go to other hotel to pick up the keys. The location was quite but 10 minutes walk to enter into the city center.
However, the good things were, cleanliness, fully equipped kitchenette, room cleaning on weekdays, security, fast elevator and free tea coffee at the reception.

I would prefer to stay within the city center next time.

I stayed here at the suggestion of the distributor I was visiting on business. I didn't do any comparison shopping, but the price/quality ratio seemed very good. You get a very nice small kitchenette and a nice bathroom. Free internet via wi-fi and ethernet. The location is good, and the breakfast place is quite cool. The staff was friendly and helpful.
