Be careful driving into Rothenburg; many of the streets are impassable. Our daughter and I were trying to locate a recommended hotel to find there was "no room in the inn". We thought to drive and just check to see who had vacancy. Turning down one narrow street we had to reverse and back up as the trash truck in front of us also had to backup. Only one way in and backing up to return. That return put us in front of the Hotel Goldener Hirsch. Lovely front and sign, and ,yes, they could accommodate us. It was the last leg of our trip and money was running thin. We read that there is a 2% charge if you use a credit card. We paid 135 Euro for one night and charged the second night. The owner did not add on the 2%. There are a few steps to a lift. Our second floor room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The windows opened to a spectacular viel of the valley and mountains. It was a nice way to end our trip.
There is parking available for 7 Euro a day, just around another corner, within a block.
Breakfast was generous and very nice. The dining hall also overlooks the valley; a nice place to relax and not feel rushed. Owners and staff were very helpful and polite. We often saw their little son walking around and observing people; a good education for him.
Overnight tours often stay here as we discovered the next morning when we went down to breakfast and 50 some people had gathered waiting for the dining room to open. We went for a walk and returned later; there was still plenty of food and chafers were being refilled.
The hotel is quiet; we never heard any of these other guests. Lovely people and a lovely hotel in a lovely town.
