It is nicely decorated, very well cut, 2 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms. Living room is spacious and the big terrace is a great plus even in winter with the wonderful view. Don't think twice it's alright! We will certainly come back. Thank you for letting us use your great apt!

                                                                                                      We had a great 3-night Christmas market stay. The apartment is spacious, seems totally new inside and is very well-equipped - probably the nicest holiday apartment we've rented. But the best part is the location - in a historic building just 50 meters from the Marktplatz, yet very quiet. Parking and the castle train are 150m away and there's a small grocery and bakery round the corner. It's also easy to get out of town to visit the Neckar valley, nearby towns and the Black Forest. There are some steep steps to the 2nd floor entrance, but help with bags is available and it's worth it for the view (I believe the lower floors are available too as smaller apartments). Wouldn't hesitate to return and recommend.

It's located in a very desirable area of Heidelberg, about 10 minutes walk from the city centre. I would guess the apartment is about 100 years old, with very high ceilings and big bright airy rooms. It has been very attractively renovated and decorated, with good quality furnishings, and has everything you could possibly need, from kitchen equipment to hifi and video stuff to comfortable beds to very efficient heating. I spent four weeks here, getting to know the town and surrounding area. There are lots of shops about 5 minutes walk away, a good bus service into the middle of Heidelberg about 200 metres away, and an excellent tram service to the main station and other places. Parking is on street but the apartment comes with a permit and I had no trouble finding spaces. That said, you could easily get by without a car if you wanted to. I think it's wonderful, very reasonably priced, and would heartily recommend it.
