I also visited this cute little hotel while travelling with EF Tours - first in 200 and then again in 2009. Both times we found the hotel charming, the rooms clean and comfortable and the staff very helpful. Oddly enough, of the 4 nights in total that we've spent here it has rained every night. Therefore, the lack of a/c was never an issue. Besides there is a very active and well-stocked bar downstairs where you can imbibe a few to help ease you into slumber. The rooms have TV's with satellite, nice showers and toilets and are only one flight of stairs above the restaurant/bar.
I did have a little trouble getting to sleep one night when a boisterous group of Italian folksingers took over the outdoor terrace of the bar and commenced to sing away half the night at the top of their lungs. Light sleepers might want to request a room in the auxiliary building across the parking lot.
None of our meals here were ordered from the restaurant's regular menu, but were instead the usual tour group special high-carb fare: Pasta, potatoes, bread, thick soup and sausages filled our bellies and were better than the average meals we experienced elsewhere on our trips throughout Europe. The breakfast buffet was also much to my liking, especially compared to the paucity of an Italian or French breakfast. There were hard rolls, cold cuts, cheese, cereals, orange and apple juice and soft-boiled eggs (yum).
EF uses this hotel because it is probably the best rate they can get in the Heidelberg area. It isn't exactly close, but a 20 minute ride will get you into the heart of this noted German tourist attraction. I'm glad the bus drivers know the way because it looks a little wicked driving through some of the narrow streets around Schriesheim.
Another bonus for shoppers is that the main drag between Heidelberg and Schriesheim offers a number of discount food stores such as Edeka, Lidl and Aldi. We were able to score some nicely discounted bottles of booze, candy and cooking supplies which we brough back for friends. It also allows you to put together a nice picnic lunch for the long bus rides or when you're driving on your own.
