You don't care about a central location? Then the Hexenhäusle (witch house) is a charming and authentic alternative to the hotels in the city centre. It's hardly possible to get a cheaper place - which is why you can take the liberty to hire one or the other taxi. The rooms are bright, decorated in a sunny yellow and spotlessly clean. The hotel was last renovated in 2007, and since then everything has been shining in a warm glow. There are sinks in the rooms, yet no showers - those are on the floors for common use. If you want to save even more, you can bring your own towels and bed linen, otherwise you have to rent them. And if you don't feel like making your way into the city centre at night, you can settle down in the hostel garden or play table football with the other guests. Doubles start at 16 euros a night per person, and for longer-term residents (one month stay) there is a special tariff of 11 euros per person.
Classy ambiance, nice atmosphere and yet... it is a motel, after all. However, one of the most elegant far and wide. It is not surprising that the Motel One is relatively affordable, despite its stylish design: The rooms are not exactly spacious, and obviously the bathroom is also quite small, so that the sink had to go and was built into the desk. Or is that simply a crazy design idea? Whatever: Motel One is a friendly and affordable alternative for your city tour, which you won't primarily spend in your hotel room, anyway. Unfortunately, the hotel is located at the much travelled Heilbronn Road, yet inside you will hardly worry about street noise. Rain shower, flatscreen TV, workspace. All of it in elegant white and granite, with a splash of turquoise here and there. Doubles start at 79 euros a night.
