“Great Location and View, Comfortable Loft”
Reviewed 10 December 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a wonderful two night stay in Heidelberg and enjoyed staying in the Altstadt-Loft. As other reviewers have noted, getting to the house requires climbing steps and hills. Heidelberg does sit in a river valley between two hills. From the house, we were able to walk to the Altstadt, to the Castle, and over to Philosopher's Way and see all the sights we wanted to see without having to drive our car. The apartment provides a parking space in the garage, which is great.
Volker Wingrath was very helpful, met us to let us in, gave us a great restaurant suggestion, and was an all-around friendly fellow. The booking, check-in and check-out process was uncomplicated.
I was there with my husband and my parents. There was more than enough space for us two couples. The sleeping loft doesn't allow much room to stand up, but we really just crawled to the bed and slept up there... no need to stand. The other bed was on the level below. There isn't a closed wall separating the loft from the apartment below, so just keep that in mind if you're looking for privacy within a traveling group.
The kitchen had all of the essentials. The bathroom is dated, but it was clean and everything in great working order. The glass wall and the view is really neat. I wish the weather had been better for us to enjoy the terrace/balcony!
I'd stay here again!

“Like living in a tree house”
Reviewed 21 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I can only repeat what the others have said. Only a short walk down to the old town or the bus stop. Volker is a great host, the facilities are good (the pool table is fun) and it's very useful to have the free wifi and the garage facility.

Be aware that you need to be pretty mobile. It's quite a steep hill to walk up from the town or the bus stop and when you get to the place there are a lot of steps and, even inside, the main bed is on a mezzanine level up a spiral staircase. On the other hand, if it wasn't like that you wouldn't be up among the trees in such a great location.

“Perfect Base to Explore Heidelberg”
Reviewed 27 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Comfortable apartment in perfect location - few minutes walk to Altstadt/Castle. Great views from the apartment. Visited in winter and it was really warm. Lovely to have a bath (most places only have showers). Fully equipped with everything we needed. Wifi a great bonus. Pool table lots of fun! Owner really friendly and helpful. Place was really quiet day/night. Bed very comfortable for sleeping. Thankyou!

“Beautiful views. A lot of stairs”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Great having a little extra room for 3 adult women. Enjoyed ourselves very much in Heidelberg. Be warned, many stairs to get up to the apartment but that seems normal for Europe. Could not connect to wifi but there was a computer available for our use.

“Excellent apartment in Heidelberg”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Stayed 2 nights in May with my wife, daughter, son-in-law and 3-year-old granddaughter. The apartment is very well located within an easy 10 minute walk to Altstadt, Heidelberg castle, the old bridge, and other popular sites. The deck and large windows provided great views of the city. Volker is an exceptional host and treated us like family. Picked us up and dropped us off at the train station in his van, provided a car seat for the granddaughter, beers in the refrigerator, coffee, and many other essentials. Highly recommend!
