This hotel is inside the walled city of Rothenburg and, although our GPS directed us to turn under the archway, into the city, I was sure that no automobile was supposed to go in there. I was wrong! Once rerouted by my GPS, and upon returning to that archway, I saw another car go in so I followed. Now a believer, I followed the directions right to the front door. Very interesting, driving inside the wall on cobbled streets that are at times crowded with pedestrians! Once at the hotel we were told to leave the car right outside the door - the valet would take care of parking the car. Two days later, upon checking out, the valet retrieved our car, bringing it right back to the front door. Very nice and hassle free! (Note: another reviewer mentioned an "extra charge" for valet but we did not incur a charge - although we did tip the valet.)
The staff couldn't have been friendlier, from the desk clerk (at varying times we were served by the owners; husband, wife and daughter, I believe) to the restaurant staff. One of our electric converters (wall outlet) had failed and they were kind enough to loan us one of theirs.
The rooms couldn't have been nicer, or cleaner, and the hallway decor akin to being in a museum. A very nice, interesting, eclectic collection.
With so many dining options available in town, we only ate our breakfasts (included in rate) at Hotel Markusturm. A plentiful, traditional German buffet. The waffle maker was a nice touch, and they offered made to order eggs, as well.
