If you are looking for a hotel in Heidelberg, there are only few real luxury choices. One of those is the Heidelberg Suites Boutique Hotel, which is part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
- Classification: Five Stars
- Room Category: Deluxe Suite
- Month of Stay: October
The hotel comes with only a few dozens of suites and appartments and thus has a very private and boutique feel. The building itself is really beautiful and a great example for historic architecture with a modern touch in Heidelberg. The check-in process was very nice and friendly as well, making me look forward to a really nice hotel stay.
Deluxe Suite at the Heidelberg Suites Boutique Hotel
I had booked the smallest of the different suites at the Heidelberg Suites Boutique Hotel, which is about 30 to 35 square meters large. Upon entering, you’ll find yourself in a small entrance area and then immediately in the small living room.
This one basically consists of two comfortable armchairs and a small table.
On the table, a few macaroons were prepared as a small and nice welcome gift.
The entrance area as such doubles as a small kitchenette.
While you can’t really cook here, there’s at least a Nespresso coffee machine with complimentary capsules.
Right next to the living room, separated by a door, is the bedroom, which again is really tiny.
There’s basically just a very comfortable bed with two nightstands.
Opposite of it, there’s a large flat-screen television.
Last but not least, the bathroom is worth mentioning. It’s located next to the bedroom and is mediumly sized.
There’s a toilet and a bidet as well as a sink with a classic touch.
The bathtub and shower aren’t seperated, but still are nice enough as there’s a decent shield for the water and there’s a a really good rain shower head.
The view of my suite had the river in the distance, but mainly the entrance area of the hotel and the parking lot of sorts.
All in all, I really liked the design and style of the Heidelberg Suites Boutique Hotel, but wouldn’t consider the rooms to really all be suites as especially Deluxe Suite felt tiny. Nevertheless, I’d say that the hotel is definitely on a similiar level as for example the Colombi Hotel Freiburg.
Breakfast at the Heidelberg Suites Boutique Hotel
During my time in France, I stayed at various different boutique hotels and thus am aware that breakfast here often is a little less extensive than at larger hotels. Sure enough, this wasn’t different at the Heidelberg Suites Boutique Hotel, which had a small buffet.
The cheeses, bread rolls, cold cuts, mueslis, fruits etc. were of very high quality though and I enjoyed the breakfast as much as for example at the Hotel Le Royal Lyon or the Grand Hotel Beauvau Marseille.
What’s particularly nice about braekfast at the Heidelberg Suites Boutique Hotel is that you can order freshly prepared egg dishes from the kitchen. I had nice scrambled eggs with cheese and ham, for example.
All in all, I liked the breakfast experience at the Heidelberg Suites Boutique Hotel and would recommend booking a rate with breakfast.
Gym at the Heidelberg Suites Boutique Hotel
I was honestly surprised that the Heidelberg Suites Boutique Hotel even offers a gym as this definitely isn’t the norm for boutique hotels.
There’s a nice enough pavillion with some equipment in the gardens of the hotel.
Here, you can have a quick cardio or strength workout if you like, but my personal recommendation would be just going for a run at the river, which is really nice.
Overall impressions of the Heidelberg Suites Boutique Hotel
Compared to other luxury hotels in Germany like the Althoff Seehotel Überfahrt, the Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg or the Grand Hotel Heiligendamm, the Heidelberg Suites definitely feel more boutique. The “suites” are a bit on the small side and the breakfast buffet isn’t all that extensive. Nevertheless, everything feels high quality, from the furniture to the food, so I’d defintely recommend staying here when in Heidelberg!
