Hotel Die Hirschgasse Heidelberg

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 August 2017 via mobile

Whilst travelling through Germany we fell upon this hotel by chance whilst looking for a room for the night, and oh so glad that we did! Right from the moment you arrive you're made to feel special and that never faltered through our stay here! The hotel itself is gorgeous, lovely grounds, fabulous rooms and incredible restaurant. The dinner menu sounded great and didn't disappoint at all. My husband and I started with the snails with blue cheese - sensational! We followed this up with the lamb cutlets, beautifully cooked, nice and pink inside but lovely and crisp on the outside. The sauce that accompanied these was fantastic. The cheeseboard was to die for..... fantastic selection of perfectly ripened cheese in perfect condition, absolutely superb! All of this was accompanied by a gorgeous bottle of German red followed by port with the cheese. We took espresso and cognac on the terrace to finish off an incredible meal! An absolute must do if in Heidelberg! Gorgeous nights sleep was then followed by a breakfast fit for a king! Attention to detail again came with a paper menu with our name on it. All of the products where locally sourced and all equally delicious. Fabulous muesli, mango smoothie, vanilla yoghurt, chai apple crumble followed by a selection of meats, cheese and smoked salmon. This was all accompanied by the most gorgeous bread and with optional selection of eggs cooked to order! If you get the chance to stay at this fabulous place grab it with both hands and enjoy! My only regret is that we couldn't have stayed longer!!!

Dear Karen,
After reading your very moutwatering report of our butler breakfast, I have ordered it myself..!
Thank you for the lovely 100% score and your time you have devoted to share your experience with us. We would find it "sensational"! if you would return soon in the Hirschgasse.

Meanwhile I remain with very best wishes.

We received a warm welcome upon arrival with refreshments.
Wonderfull old building full of history on the other side of the river. Nice and quiet neighbourhood.
Loved the bed and the bath!
Wonderfull breakfast; not if you have small children who dont appreciate the finer things in life.
Lovely eye for details!
Will try the Michelin star dinner next time around

I have dined here several times as it's dinner menu is impressive. This was my 1st overnight stay and it ticks all the right boxes. The rooms are charming and the service exemplary. Breakfast is also a gastronomic delight.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the 2 room suites with a 4 poster bed. It is worth the slightly extra cost

Dear Malcom32,
You have done the right thing - stay with us and just walk up the stairs into your suite after a meal in the Le Gourmet. Thank you for trying out our Hotel rooms this time together with a visit to the Restaurant.

I remain with warmest regards,

We decided to stay here on our first visit to Heidelberg because we had read Mark Twain's A Tramp Abroad, which mentioned this hotel as a student duel site. If you're a history buff, how could you resist? It turned not only to be historically delightful, but all over wonderful. From the beautifully decorated rooms to the most amazing breakfast and the most charming young man at the desk who could not have been more helpful. When in Heidelberg, we'd stay nowhere else!

Dear Lisa,
Thank you for the delightful comment due to your stay in the Hirschgasse - we appreciate it very much.
You see: "history actually teaches us something..." Not always, it has to be a dry matter and can be filled wonderfully, so it still can be a very useful and pleasant experience.

Hoping to see you in our "classroom" again soon :-)
Best regards,
Ernest Kraft

If you're looking for a taste of homespun Heidelberg with lashings of quaint and eccentric luxury, then this is the retreat for you. I stayed here as a single female traveller (attending a conference) and loved the subtle yet welcoming hospitality of the place. Whilst the bedrooms are an overstuffed concoction of 1980's Laura Ashley on steroids (think matching wallpaper, bedding, curtains and cushions), they exude a welcoming homeliness that makes you feel quite cocooned from the rigour of everyday life. I was in a bedroom nestled into the eaves of this traditional home, with splendid views of the river and castle. The welcoming glass of port, bowls of wrapped chocolates and glossy coffee table books were a lovely touch after a long day traveling.

The hotel is only a twenty minute walk by the river from the town centre, so benefits from being quiet and secluded whilst still proximal to some delightful restaurants and bars. In reality though, it is hard to pull yourself away from the acclaimed hotel restaurant at all. This is where you find yourself served exquisite local delicacies by white gloved waiters, one arm formally tucked behind their backs as they reverentially explain each course in hushed accented tones. At points, I wondered if I had stumbled onto an Agatha Christie film set by mistake, tucking into the charcuterie plate whilst mounted antlers trembled on the walls around me.

I would come back here in a flash. I loved the character and welcoming elegance of this hotel. It was exquisite.

Dear Elizabeth,

We love the style of your narration and thank you for such a good entertaining short story.

It is true, some people have to adapt first, being part on the big table with Hercule Poirot serving dinner in a "crooked house" By the way, we have really an excellent moose - chocolate mousse!

Hope your flash works - looking forward to seeing you soon.
Best regards
