About Lotte - The Backpackers

Lotte is a unique old house. It is situated in the heart of old-town Heidelberg and is very close to the historic castle.

This homely house offers eight guestrooms only. That´s why we can only take groups of up to 6 guests. A stylistic individual interior decor and an ambiance of "living-room" coziness makes you feel like staying in a family home.

On the first floor of this lovely old house we offer you newly renovated and refurbished dormitory-style accommodation. One dorm is for girls only - they also have their own bathroom close by. Use our new grandma-style kitchen or the cosy living-room.

On the second floor you are welcome to choose from two beautifully appointed double-rooms (60s-style) and a family-room. Two bathrooms and a kitchen are for those guests only.

Lotte is conveniently located and is close to many of Heidelberg's points of interests, be they entertainment, shopping or scenic. You can´t be closer to the Old Town, the center of Heidelberg.

If you cancel your reservation within 24 hours before your arrival and we can´t sell your bed to someone else, we have to charge the first night of your stay.

2. No-shows: If you don´t show up without having canceled, we will charge you with the cost of the first night.

If you arrive after 10 pm, please let us know in advance. Otherwise you might find yourself sleeping under the Old Bridge, because the door is locked.

When checking-in you get a key (5 € key deposit), so you have around the clock access to the hostel.

We kindly ask you to pay in cash or card (EC, Master, Visa) when checking-in.

Location Information

Lotte - The Backpackers
Burgweg 3
69117 Heidelberg
Germany

Lotte is located in the oldest part of Heidelberg, very close to restaurants, many bars, popular sights and the main shopping street. We are 2 minutes’ walk from the Old Bridge and 1 minute only to the Hauptstrasse.

Guests of the private rooms are having a lovely view of the historic castle when having breakfast. The walkway up to the castle starts right behind the house, just a few metres uphill.

If you like hiking take the funicular railway up to the Koenigstuhl mountain, where you can take long or short tours with fantastic views or walk along Philosophenweg located at the slope of Heiligenberg just on the other side of the Neckar river.

From the main station it takes only 15 minutes by bus to get to us. It stops directly in front of Lotte. A parking deck is situated opposite the house.

Cancellation Policy

Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 1 day before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the first nights cost of the reservation, unless otherwise stated in the property’s conditions. Deposits paid are non refundable.
