“View medieval city wall from your room”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Ask for Room 114 (only 25 Euro more), 2 room suite with balcony for picnics overlooking the old city wall and the valley beyond. The rooms are everything you would dream of, spacious with handsome antique furniture. Sinks were in the room with tub and toilet in adjoining room. Hotel is near city center so a quick rest or retreat from rain shower is possible. Breakfast, included in rate, offers hot or cold options and is enjoyed in the dining room overlooking the valley and city wall.
Don't miss the Night Watchman's tour, each evening at 8:00 PM. It's a marvelous combination of information and history of the town in a hilariously entertaining comedy routine. It was the highlight of our stay.

Kind service, running the extra mile. Wonderfool, charming room with fresh and wide bathroom and splendid view. Silent, peaceful sleep (double entrance door).
Fine breakfast, in an elegant veranda.
Location is spectacular, as the Goldener Hirsch is one of the few hotels standing beside the ancient walls, allowing valley view.
Interiors are classic, as in most the hotels in the city. There's a remerkably big play room, with a pool table and more options. There are two fine living rooms where you may want to debrief your days.
I watched also the other hotels in the city and made up my mind that upgrades are possible (Eisenhut), downgrades are possible as well (Klostergartner), but the charm of this location may hardly be matched (see also the Burghotel, similarly located). I plan to come back to the Goldener Hirsch, no doubt.

Room Tip: Get a valley view and breathe...

Stayed here for 4 night during the fall festival, room was very good, very spacious and clean. Hotel staff were good to deal with and very friendly. Breakfast was included in rate and there was parking available just outside hotel doors. We would recommend this hotel and will return.

We stayed one night while travelling through germany. We had a family room for 4 which was effectively 2 con-joined rooms with 2 bathrooms, rather and odd layout and dated decoration but clean, comfortable and spacious. Fantastic location and a generally fascinating old hotel. Parking very close by in the heart of the old town for only €6 a day. Breakfast was very good with nice views out over the surrounding countryside. I'd definitely recommend this hotel for a short break in rothenburg.

While the hotel could use a bit of a cleanup without loosing its character, it has great parking and in an amazing location inside the wall. We paid a bit more and had a normal room, but with a balcony overlooking the valley and part of the city. The breakfast was outstanding in a room with the same views we had in our room. You have to ask for the air conditioning to be turned on. It wasn't great, but was acceptable. The games room was appreciated. The staff were kind and most helpful. Will definitely use this hotel on my next visit.

Room Tip: Spend that bit more for the great views!

Our family of 4 stayed there on a Saturday night in July and really liked it. The inside has these very large parlor rooms from hanging out that are unique. We reserved a quadruple room and were unsure what we would get and how cramped it would be. However, we were very pleased as the quad room is really two rooms connected with an interior door. There is only one bathroom, as expected, but the room worked out very well for us plus it had a balcony with an amazing view. The breakfast was superb, one of the best that we had in Germany and we just wish that we were able to spend more than 1 night there. One minor point is that there is no shower curtain for the tub/shower combo. The water comes out of an adjustable shower head, but without a curtain it goes everywhere. Not a big deal as it is the hotel's problem but wanted to mention that it is a bit awkward. FYI, Wifi is available in room for a price and you pay per device, not per room....
