Great base for exploring the Neckar Valley
Posted Jun 22, 2013 on Hotels
My husband and I stayed at this hotel as part of a two week driving vacation in Germany. It was only ~1 hour from the Frankfurt airport so it was easy it get to after our overnight flight from the US. The couple that runs the hotel were great hosts and their English was quite understandable. They were available when we had questions and did a nice job helping us. They also did our laundry within a day for a reasonable price (great plus!). Bad Wimpfen is a beautiful little gem of a town with a very picturesque historical area -- wonderful old German buildings, a tower you can climb, and very few American tourists (we enjoy not running into "our own" at every restaurant). The hotel is within easy walking distance of a grocery store, the historical center of Bad Wimpfen, and the train station (where you can get a direct train to Heidelberg). The hotel also had plentiful parking along with free speedy Wi-Fi. The furnishing in the rooms are a little dated but very clean, spacious, and well maintained. The breakfast buffet is plentiful, lots of variety, and scrambled eggs were offered to us every morning (made to order). Finally, the hotel is in a VERY quiet neighborhood so we found the nights very peaceful for sleeping. If you are doing a driving tour of the Neckar Valley and want somewhere to say that's central, adorable, but not too crowded, I would highly recommend this hotel and the town of Bad Wimpfen.
