The overview page of the local tourist info is at: http://www.heidelberg-marketing.de/content/tourism/accommodation/index_eng.html
A "seems to be comfortable" hotel in Heidelberg is the "NH" (I did not personally test it, though): http://www.nh-hotels.com/nh/en/hotels/germany/heidelberg/nh-heidelberg.html
There is one hotel within easy walking distance to the institute: http://www.cafe-frisch.de/hotel.htm
And there are lots of hotels in the Old Town of Heidelberg (all about 15-20 min with public transport to the institute). E.g.:
Getting from Frankfurt (Main) International Airpot ("FRA") to Heidelberg
There are good train connections from the station directly at Frankfurt international airport to Mannheim and from there to Heidelberg.
Electronic time table system of the German Railway (Deutsche Bahn): http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/
- use "FRA, Frankfurt Airport" and "Heidelberg Hbf" as the stations to get the list of trains
- you can also get travel info for the local trams and busses: use "Heidelberg Hbf" and "Bunsengymnasium, Heidelberg-Neuenheim" (this is the tram station nearest to the Institute. 5 minutes walk from there.
Also possible: shuttle service. We often use the TLS: https://www.tls-heidelberg.de/en/airport/prices-shuttle-service/
If you ordered the TLS shuttle (either yourself or via us): The chauffer will meet you at the Meeting point (marked with the sign ). For arrivals at terminal 1 the Meeting point is in Hall B, for arrivals at terminal 2 the Meeting point is in Hall E. TLS estimates 30 minutes between touchdown and arrival at the meeting point. If you are traveling with only hand-luggage, please inform the shuttle service (as you may arrive earlier at the meeting point). Info page of TLS: https://www.tls-heidelberg.de/en/airport/information/
