“Lovely, quaint hotel”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Followed Rick Steve's advice to spend the night in Rothenburg, so we experience the town once the tourist busses had left for the day. This is a great old hotel very close to the city wall. We had a room on the top floor -- actually a suite of rooms. Two bedrooms, a bath, and a WC. Clean, convenient, and cute. Very friendly, helpful service. Excellent breakfast. A little hard to find but well worth the effort. Highly recommended.

This hotel is located just outside of the Old Town wall so is very well positioned. There is no parking in the grounds but public parking just across the pedestrian walkway. Some areas are free. You will probably want to carry bags over the cobblestones and pray it doesn't rain. The hotel is an old mansion with an interesting history. I loved the architecture inside and out and would loved to have explored it and seen the original layout. It has a beautiful staircase which is just as well as there is no lift. Our room was on the first floor and led off a communal sitting room with a fully stocked bar frig of beverages to purchase. There was also an internet station. Our room was very large and the décor was out dated but it was clean. No air con but a safety deposit box. We had a view of the Old Town Wall. Our bed was in a recess between the toilet on one side and the bathroom on the other. This did not make for a good night's sleep as one woke the other when needing to use the toilet. Not nice for my husband sleeping with his head a metre from the toilet door. Why the bed wasn't on the other side of the room and the desk etc in this recess is beyond me. The bedding was not up to what I would call average and the pillows had a tendancy to smother you they were so soft and offered no support. So we did not sleep well here. We found the owner absolutely delightful, quite an endearing character and did not encounter the grouch mentioned here in other reviews. Buddy, the gorgeous dog with a beautiful nature was a bonus for those of us who were a long way from home and missing their animals. I was fascinated by the bones of this old mansion and couldn't help thinking with some tasteful decorating how glorious it could be. It was a great location and we could pop in out of the old town day and night. Rothenburg is a must see town in Germany.

Room Tip: If you decide to stay here check the bed in your room isn't lodged between the toilet and bathro...

We only stayed here one night and boy do I wish we could have stayed longer.
The hotel was charming! So clean and comfortable!
Perfect location, very friendly and helpful staff, delicious breakfast, free parking nearby... Honestly the only bad thing I can think of is they didn't provide a bar of soap... If that's the worst this is a great place. And the other reviews that complained about the squeaky floorboards are very picky, I don't think I would have noticed them had I not read about it on here, really not a big deal!

Don't let the location outside the wall fool you... This is the place to stay! Staff is all super nice, friendly, helpful... Just not enough words! There are a variety of rooms from small to large, all well appointed and maintained. Breakfast was very good. This is an excellent choice if you have a car as parking is plentiful and inexpensive. We would love to stay again!

This is an old fashioned family run hotel with excellent wi fi connection and good breakfasts. The city walls are two minutes from the hotel. The family that runs the hotel is friendly and very helpful. If we visit Rothenburg again we would not hesitate using this hotel again.

Room Tip: Try for a room which overlooks the old city walls

We stayed two nights the room was lovely very large with a seating area, the breakfast was excellent. The owners could not have been more helpful recommending restaurants etc you could tell that they had great pride in their hotel. Rothenburg is a must to visit it is one of the most lovely towns on the Romantic Road.

Room Tip: We had room 15 which was lovely and had an enclosed terrace which would have been lovely to sit in b...
