The great thing about holiday inn is that you know what you're getting before you arrive - there are elements that are the same the world over and can be a bit dull after a while, but this place is a bit of a gem, it has a real genuine 1970s retro feel to it with a lot of the original decor and the built in radio alarm clocks are a great touch.
Excellent breakfast (albeit on the pricey side) as always and professional attentive staff. They could be a little more honest about the location - it's Walldorf not Heidelberg. If you want to visit Heidelberg you need to drive or get a taxi there as its around 15-20 minutes away.
My big bug bear with the place is the wifi. Even the most basic of budget hotels, b&bs and family guest houses offer free wifi, so why are holiday inn still pushing dodgy Swisscom connections at €9.50 for 12 hours on their guests? It just seems a bit cheap of them to be honest and leaves a bad taste with what is otherwise a great brand.
