We stayed 3 nights at Pension Elke in September. Our room was spotless and well equipped. It is in a great location as it is just minutes from the main square. The breakfast was excellent - lots of choices and well laid out. I highly recommend this hotel.

This place is wonderful. The room was very comfortable and cozy. I loved staying there -it was one of my favorite places I stayed on my whole three week trip.

This is a family owned and managed pension that sits above their store. It was a little tricky to locate because you have to go through their store to get to the rooms. Their store is quite interesting, filled with an amazing collection of trains , as well as groceries. Once you are checked in there is a separate entrance... More

I stayed at Pension Elke for five nights, and it truly became my home away from home during my stay in Rothenburg. My room—a double for single use—was on the small side, as was the shower stall, but it was exceptionally clean, the bed was comfortable, the shower’s hot water was fast and strong, and the free wi-fi worked great....

This lovely Pension met all of our needs and exceeded my expectations. It was clean and comfortable with an amazing breakfast with individually set tables. The kids loved the personalised touch, with our pre-ordered hot drinks left in in thermal carafes for us. It was just minutes walk to the centre of town. The store downstairs was an added bonus...

This was the best B&B we've ever stayed in. We had two bed rooms at their other location a 100 yards away from the main building (where the grocery and nicknack store is). This was like having a private apartment in Rothenburg. Both my wife and my two kids' rooms were large. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom and bedrooms... More

Great little pension in Rothenburg with supreme location. Pension is above a grocery store (same owners), which we found really convenient to buy bits and pieces we needed. Staff/owners were super friendly and helpful. Amazing breakfast. Excellent place to stay in old town Rothenburg.

We were greeted warmly and the location cannot be beat. The rooms are located above a small store that carries everything you could want, from fresh produce and meat to beer/wine and household basics. If you forgot anything for your trip, it is right there. We found our room roomy (had two rooms actually) and it was very clean. Breakfast... More

Perfect location within Rothenburg. The breakfast Klause served was delicious. One of the best we had in Germany. The bathroom, although not in the room, was right next door to the bedroom and it was not shared. I would stay here again!
