World Cup 2006 – Group A: Costa Rica team hotel

Holiday Inn Heidelberg WalldorfThe 2006 World Cup outsiders Costa Rica will be staying  at the Holiday Inn Heidelberg Walldorf. Equipped with sauna, massage and fitness facilities and decorated in the style of an English country house, the hotel is situated close to the intersection of the A5 and A6  motorways, making the team’s  trips to Munich, Hamburg and Hanover that little bit easier. I wonder if the squad will have the time (or inclination) to pay a visit to nearby Heidelberg Castle which stands impressively over the Neckar River. The above is one of a series of blog entries highlighting the luxury hotels that will be home to the national teams participating in the 2006 Fifa World Cup. If you have actually stumbled upon this page because you are looking for accommodation for the World Cup, try A Germany Hotel which lists hotels throughout the country, caters for a variety of budgets, and offers online booking.

  1. Not one of the more glamourous choices, no. I wonder if the Federación Costarricense de Fútbol (the offical football organisation in Costa Rica) has more limited funds than some other national organisations.
