This used to be one of our favorite hotels in one of our favorite cities in Europe. Not so much anymore. The original owners have moved on and with them has gone their great German warmth and hospitality. The new owners are friendly enough when you arrive but if you have any problems they just don't seem to care. The "free" wifi never worked despite how many passwords and networks they gave us. The rooms seem much smaller than they used to, but that's probably because our family has grown, and the buffet breakfast was small and uninspiring.
The location of the hotel is nice and convenient to the town square but with all the road construction this year (not the owners fault obviously) the area was dusty and noisy. Another problem is that the town itself no longer seems to care. They used to limit the cars in the "old town" during the day and forbid them in the evenings, but now the narrow roads are littered with every size of vehicle at all hours zipping around distracted tourists everywhere you go. You can no longer sit for a relaxing drink in the town square in the evening without someone driving within a few feet of you blaring bad rap music from their car. It's unfortunate and I hope the town reverts to its old rules, but I'm afraid that isn't likely to happen and their tourism will eventually suffer for it.
I can no longer recommend this once quaint and enjoyable hotel, nor the city/town of Rothenburg itself until such time as there is an improvement in both. So much for one of our favorite places.
