where you might as well leave your car for a while if you brought it along. Because you just turn left outside of the house and take a 5 minutes walk to the university square which is right in the middle of the "Altstadt". Or you turn right - 5 minutes to the castle.
We are a German - American family and Heidelberg is our adopted city.
We just wish we had stayed longer! And asked directions to the castle - whoops! What an awesome place to stay, though - definitely hope to return!
This is a fantastic unit. We rented it for three nights over Christmas 2016. I would highly recommend it, especially for families with older children. The loft space was great for our teenagers and my husband and I stayed in the bedroom on the main floor off the kitchen.
The owner even had Christmas decorations up for us inside...and a decorated and lighted tree on the patio!
We had plenty of space. The kitchen is well-equipped and has a dishwasher as well as an oven.
It's a nice walk further up the hill and across to the castle, and only a couple blocks down the hill to get to the main street in the Altstadt.
We really enjoyed staying at Volker's place. It was lovely...as was the entire town! And Volker was extremely warm and welcoming.
We arrived in rain and flood and quite soggy - but were made very welcome by Volker who appeared almost instantly when we called him. He gave us a great introduction to the property. There was garage space for our bikes at road level. The apartment was attractive, sunny with excellent north-facing windows letting in good light and giving a wonderful view clear over Heidelberg and on to what i think must be Mannheim. It is clean and spacious and there is, by golly, a magnificent pool table just as described. Bathroom is big with plenty of towels and a good shower and separate toilet. The kitchen was very pleasant and well-equipped though there was no microwave and the coffee machine took a bit of figuring out (there's a little slider thing embedded in the top of it that actually turns it on but it's not obvious to a person unfamiliar with Keurig type machines). There were some basic supplies as well as coffee and tea. Neither the coffee machine nor the microwave at all detracted from our stay and I mention them only for informational purposes.
There was a very comfortable right-angled couch and two big comfortable beds with nice linens. The attic bed requires a stooped position and a climb up a ladder, but that wasn't an issue for us at all. Kids would love it because it is like being on the bridge of a ship. Everything about the place was just as advertised and the reality was even better than the pictures. It was also very quiet at night even with the many windows open. Minor traffic noise but not a big racket or people yelling as they exit bars. There's a balcony that we'd have used more if it had ever stopped raining!
There are approximately 40 steps from the garage up to the door and then more steps inside on a circular staircase up to the apartment, so this is not suited for anybody with mobility issues. The walk down to the old town is about five minutes steeply downhill and about double that coming back up! The walk to the castle is maybe 10-15 minutes somewhat up, but not to be missed. We thought it was a lovely place, great value and very comfortable and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others. We contemplated moving in and staying forever!
Sehr gute Lage, netter Vermieter, schöne Wohnung, .... kommen gerne wieder.
