It has a great location! Breakfast is amazing!! It was lovely to stay in a family owned and run place! The hosts were incredibly hospitable. Had such a pleasant stay. When I go back to rothenburg, and I will one day, I would definately stay here again

Just came back from our European trip. Germany, Italy & Romania. Pension Elke was the best! it has a lot of character and charm. 71 Euros/per night for a family of 3 was good with 10% discount if you mention Rick Steves or if you stay more than 1 night, which we did. We got one room with two bedrooms...

Pension Elke was our favorite place to stay on our entire European vacation. Klauss is extremely friendly and thoughtful, the pension rooms were immaculate and nicely appointed (but without a lot of fancy - just simple and charming). Our daughter celebrated her 7th birthday here, and Klauss made a special breakfast with a donut with candle to blow out (which...

We were initially supposed to stay here for only one night but our plans changed and Klaus was able to graciously accommodate us for three nights. And we also got a 10% discount for staying 3 nights. The pension is in a perfect location - a minute from the main Marktplatz and a couple of minutes from the wall. We...

This was a wonderful place to stay, just inside the gate (near the train station), so it was ideal for getting to by train. The room was very cheerful and contemporary, with light colors and modern fixtures. It was quiet yet right on the main street downtown. Klaus was friendly and helpful, and we felt welcomed with a personal touch....

We picked this place out of Rick Steves'...location is the main draw to staying here! There is free parking very close to the hotel INSIDE the city wall. It's very nice to be able to park and forget about the car while you walk everywhere you want to in this picturesque medieval city! I've never stayed above a "quik-e-mart" before,...

This B&B was the best value of any place I stayed in Europe. The rooms/bathroom were extremely clean. The location is perfect- right on the Plonlein and a short walk to the train station and town center. The breakfast was wonderful- with hot breads, cheeses, meats. The best part was the hospitality. Although I don't speak much German- the owners...

The Pension Elke was a great find. The price after the Rick Steve's 10% discount was great. It is a 10 minute walk from the train station and is just inside the main gate and is above the owner's grocery store - I got the best/cheapest milk chocolate bar there - I should have gotten more! Also, bought some good...

My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in August and really enjoyed it. From the minute we got there, Klaus and his father Erich greeted us with a smile. Erich even carried my girlfriend's bag up the stairs to room. It is the little things like that that really stand out. The room was a double...

Our family stayed at Pension Elke at the beginning of June '09. We agree with all the previous positive comments. We have two kids ages 10 & 11 and had the top floor room that contains two separate rooms each with a full size bed and our own bathroom with a shower. We found it clean and comfortable. We also...
