Directly across from Heidelberg’s iconic Alte Brucke, Old Bridge is where you’ll find this popular boutique hotel, built in 1745. It’s in a great location, right in the center of Heidelberg’s historic old town, but also includes a splendid view of the Neckar River.
The lobby serves as a formal living room/sitting area, and the hotel’s 39 rooms have a variety of layouts, giving families plenty of options. Larger families can stay in either the Superior or Deluxe Family Apartment, which consists of two adjoining rooms. All rooms have modern bathrooms, with some of them having baths, and some only with showers. Furnishings reflect a subdued elegance, and there’s free Internet throughout the hotel. There’s no air conditioning, but the hotel does provide fans. The wonderful complimentary buffet breakfast includes smoked salmon, an assortment of breads and danishes, cheeses, sausages and prosciutto, eggs, fruits, yogurts, cereals, juice and coffee.

Located right next to the Old Bridge, this hotel is close to everything. We had a nice room with a direct view of the Old Bridge. A big bonus is that the hotel offers a breakfast plate for Euro 6 (juice, coffee, breads, cheeces, meat) in addition to the full buffet that costs Euro 14.50, which is much too much food for us. Very helpful staff.
A nice, traditional hotel with a perfect location in the old town of Heidelberg, facing the river. Friendly staff, cosy and clean room, delicious breakfast. Only a short taxi ride away from the train station.
