Hotel Goldene Rose: A room with no view
Hotel Goldene Rose is situated just off the main shopping street in Heidelberg, close to the main attractions of the city. We chose to stay in this hotel mainly due to its location, and thought that it offered a good price and nice overall feel from the website pictures.
We arrived by car at the hotel, and had to try to avoid hitting passengers since the street was so narrow. It was difficult to find somewhere to park in the street, but when we were eventually able to check-in, one of the staff members parked our car for us in the hotel carpark, situated to the back of the building.
As we were shown to our room, I noticed that it was clean but extremely small, just enough space for the suitcase and us! I expected this since we were in a city, but the bathroom also followed suit and it felt a little like walking into a closet when we needed the toilet! Nevertheless, I liked the decor, the bed was comfortable and the colour TV provided some good local channels.
Since we were off the main street, the room had no particularly good view, just of the windows of the building opposite, but sometimes this has to be given up when one wants some peace and quiet at night to sleep, which Hotel Goldene Rose provided more than adequately. I slept well, but was a little hot since there was no air conditioning and it was August time. We were in a standard room but the hotel does offer more spacios junior-suites which do have air-conditioning - phew!
The breakfast provided a nice variety of cereals, breads, meats, cheeses and marmalades which I think would cater well for a variety of diets. I also liked that the hotel had an internet point with free access and the common area was decorated well.
I would recommend staying at the Hotel Goldene Rose for those visiting the city that like to be within easy walking distance of the local attractions. I enjoyed my stay here and felt comfortable and welcomed. However, you need to be happy with a small room and not so fussy about having a great view. [more]
