A very clean, super little place.

4 of 5
We had a lovely stay. The apartment was very clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. Would definitely stay again.Having a garage space was great as we could park the car and explore the city by tram and bus. The owner was quick to response to all questions with no fuss or deposit needed. Only thing we would change is to have a better wireless service. Qanita (England Kent)

Beautiful apartment with absolutely stunning views

5 of 5
The steep climb up to this apartment is well worth the effort! Nestled in the hills overlooking Heidelberg this spot is idyllic and the views are breath-taking! The apartment is spacious and very comfortable and the owner Ingrid was the perfect host. It's a 40 min walk into Heidelberg along the river Neckar although we invested in a 4 day tram and bus pass which took us into the city centre in 10 mins. It's a beautiful city: visit the castle, the zoo, take a river cruise or just wander around the historic old town with its many cafes. Thank you so much Ingrid for your wonderful hospitality.

Perfect location, stunning apartment

5 of 5
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.
