“Always a pleasant stay!”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

Stayed at the Hotel Traube a number of times now and this hotel never fails to disappoint! Everywhere is always clean and Dave & Doris treat everyone like family which I like very much. The hotel is equipped with a small bar area which is a great place to make new friends on an evening. A good breakfast is always provided and if you want additional items like scrambled eggs you only have to ask. Leimen is, on the whole very quiet but the local tram stop is just less than 5 mins walk away where you can be down town in Heidelberg in just around 15 – 20 mins. Looking forward to seeing Dave & Doris again soon hopefully.

Room Tip: Rooms to the back of the hotel are away from the main road if you prefer a quieter room.

I can't say enough good things about Dave and Doris. When you are living in or visiting a country and you don't speak the native language, finding a hotel where the hosts fluently speak your native tongue, English, is a bonus. If you can find lodging where the hosts speak your language and are genuinely friendly and helpful, it is a blessing. If you are looking for a place near Heidelberg, I definitely recommend this hotel. As noted by other reviewers, the metro is very close by and Dave and Doris will welcome you like a long lost friend.

Dave and Doris are great and practically make you feel like long lost friends as soon as you walk into the hotel. The room was great, really quite spacious by European standards, comfortable in every way for my wife and me. Easy access to the metro even though Leimen is a bit outside of Heidelberg (where you are probably trying to go). We had a rental car and there was plenty of parking when we got there. As others have noted, the restaurant only does breakfast, but it is a good breakfast and Doris gave us the run-down on restaurants nearby we might enjoy for dinner (we would recommend the Brauhaus Leimen right around the corner).
One little thing we appreciated was the fridge in the room (not as common as one might hope) and for a smoker, there were plenty of little walkway balconies to grab a quick smoke without having to get all the way to the street level.
We would definitely recommend this hotel and will certainly stay there again if we come through the Heidelberg area again.

I recently stayed at the Hotel Traube for 4 nights. It was my second stay there. While it’s a bit away from Heidelberg, it’s a really nice place to stay and the owners (Dave and Doris Reeves) treat you like family. When you want to visit Heidelberg, there’s a street car nearby (5 minute walk if you catch the light) which takes you directly to Heidelberg’s Bismarkplatz in about 30 minutes. The rooms and their private baths are a good size and breakfast is included and has a good selection. They have parking inside their courtyard and some across the street as well. All in all, a nice place run by nice people. I would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I recently spent a week in the Hotel Traube. What a delightful gem! The owners are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is just outside of Heidelberg and only steps from the streetcar. The hotel restaurant serves only breakfast; choices were varied and delicious. Restaurants for evening dining are within walking distance. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel!
