Stayed while visiting for the Christmas markets and sight seeing. The hotel is located on a small side road between the main pedestrian way and the road following the Neckar River. We did have to drive the pedestrian street to park at the hotel, but after mildly freaking out, we managed. We had a 3 bed room at the top...

Our office dinner was held at the Backmulde. Service and quality of the food was excellent. The 4 cours menu was ver tastful especially my main dish, fish. Most of us also stayed overnight and the rooms are cosy and quite.

I only stayed one night - my main regret. But the hotel has charm, it is ideally situated in a small street in the old town, perfect for exploring. My room was comfortable, warm when it was cold outside in early December, the bathroom clean and modern, the wifi worked well.

There are two things about this hotel that may put off an American unused to old European cities. One is that the building is very old, although completely modernized, so there are various levels inside that are not all served by the lift. The other is that the parking is inside a courtyard, and the entire facility is a block...

Great location for tourist, friendly and helpful staff, hospitable, clean, large well appointed rooms, parking available, great breakfast, fairly priced all in a historic building. They do have their own restaurant, but I did not eat there.

We spent our first night in Germany here. The room was reasonably sized for two people, and equipped with what we needed. The bedding was comfortable. Breakfast included, which makes the price quite good. The reception staff were very helpful. The best thing was the location in the Altstadt.

My wife and I stayed here for our first evening of a 2 week European tour. We decided on the interior room (#19 I believe) without an outside view and found it to be very comfortable and clean. The lack of an outside window didn't bother us since we went to bed around 9pm and wanted complete darkness to get...

We chose to visit Heidelberg because of its history and chose Gasthaus Backmulde because it seemed charming and located in the old town. What we didn't realize was that the weekend we were there was "Heidelberg Herbst" - the city's fall festival. This meant that downtown streets were blocked off and rather than the spirit of 19th century German romanticism,...

Stayed at this hotel for three nights. Nicely appointed good sized room (no air-conditioning, unfortunately). Hotel is literally a one minute walk from the main pedestrian zone and very close to Old Heidelberg's main attractions and tourist area. Extremely nice and helpful staff. Very good value for money.
