“What a great place!”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

I can only echo what everyone else has said about this place. A great welcome from the minute we turned up, including providing guide books in our language . It's in a perfect location - a quiet residential neighbourhood, in easy walking distance of the walled city and all its attraction. Although the decor is 70s, everything is comfortable and spotlessly clean. The addition of free beer and water is great. And, as for the breakfasts - there is so much choice (and it varies from day to day), that it will keep you going until dinner.

We had the large room, with its own bathroom - a bargain at E60 per night

Room Tip: If you can afford it go for the big room - loads of space and your own bathroom

We can't imagine that there would be a better place to stay in Rothenburg; Hans and Karin are amazing hosts. Our room was large with a comfortable seating area. Breakfast was excellent. Karin provided us with detailed instructions of the short walk to city center and advice on which restaurants to patronize. She even supplies beer and H2O for her guests. My sister had stayed here several years ago, and highly recommended Haus-Karin. She was totally right! If we ever return to Rothenburg, there will be no question of where to stay. Haus-Karin is the one!

My husband and I got to stay with Hans and Karen recently. It was our first night in Germany and they made us feel like we were coming home. The rooms were perfect and clean and the breakfast in the morning was wonderful. They provided beer and water for us and delicious chocolate on our bed : ) Karen was very helpful in explaining the city and offering places to eat. I couldn't have been more satisfied with our stay, just wish we could have stayed longer...

We have stayed with Karin before. They are so welcoming and helpful. The rooms are clean, and the breakfast is the best in Germany. The rates are very reasonable, and she offers water and beer for your taking. Karin made reservations at our favorite restaurant in the old city as we requested. Herr Weiss will take and pick you up from the train station (very helpful), but we had a car this time. No worries! Free parking on the street. The location is fantastic. Just a short 5 minute walk and you are inside the city.

If you chose a place to stay in Rothenburg, this should be the place!

Room Tip: Make arrangements in advance, and ask for recommendations for places to eat. Karin is willing to ma...

My family and I of 4 adults had the fortune of being able to stay two nights at this wonderful place! This place lived up to our expectations and far exceeded them. All the wonderful reviews on the breakfast really just don't do it justice; to us it was way more amazing than we would have ever imagined. You really are treated very well here. Karin is such a great person and an amazing hostess. The walk to and from town is not bad at all, even after a long and tiring day around town. It was very quiet staying there, even though we were there in off-season. However, I can see even during in-season how it can still be fairly quiet compared to staying in the historic part of town. There's not much more I can say about this place that has already been said. Stop reading reviews on this place and go ahead and book it; you will definitely not regret it! Thanks, Karin, for a wonderful stay at your house; I will definitely be back!

My husband and I stayed with Karin and Hans 5 years ago and had such an amazing visit to Rothenburg we thought returning it couldn't possibly be as charming as we experienced the first time. But it really, really was. This time we brought our two small children and honestly, we felt more like we were visiting relatives or old friends than a B&B. Karin and Hans were so welcoming and friendly, and just like last time went the extra mile to help us have a fantastic stay. From providing maps and travel advice for Rothenburg and the romantic road generally, to finding toys for our kids to play with, and even bringing us chocolates back from a day trip... everything was just that bit more than expected. We loved it every bit as much as last time.

The house is in a residential area but about a 2 minute walk to the old city walls, 5 to the market square. It's quiet, comfortable, and the breakfasts are so generous you'll probably not need lunch. They provide a fridge stocked with free sparkling water and beer, a guide book for the city, they'll drive you to and from the station if you need it - I just couldn't recommend them highly enough. Everything you could want out of a stay in Rothenburg ODT. Prices are also incredibly good - one of the cheapest places we stayed in our entire trip. I can't think of a single negative thing to say! (and why would I want to - I love this place).

Room Tip: We've stayed upstairs and downstairs - upstairs is probably the pick as it's a massive room...

We stayed in the large en- suite room for 1 night, during a trip to see the Christmas markets. Although it is not anything fancy, it is very comfortable, spacious & spotlessly clean. The bed was super comfortable & combined with the quiet residential neighborhood, we had an excellent night's rest. Nice, soft & fluffy towels in the bathroom. We left our rental car on the street in front of the house & easily walked the short distance into the historic walled town area. Fantastic breakfast ( described in posts below, so I won't repeat), as well as a little fridge in common area stocked with complimentary beer, water, tea, etc. Karin speaks excellent English & makes every effort to make sure her guests enjoy their stay. For 50 euros/ night--- I don't know how you can beat it !
