Stayed here for two nights - both enjoyable. This is a small town- book early! We stayed in the main building- but I believe the building across the street is also part of this hotel.
1. If you are arriving late, phone ahead as the front desk closes down at 10pm. That may sound late-- but miss a train (like we did) and you're risking not getting in that night. I called ahead at 6pm to remind them we were on the way and the young man said "Oh good, people have asked about your room three times and I almost gave it away" (wait, what?! Check in is permitted until 10pm and you're going to charge me... so, "give it away"?) We got there at 7:45pm so no problem. But, we were the last check ins that day apparently.
2- The ELEVATOR also stops working around that time. You're asked to use your key to enter in a side door (totally lit and safe), but they forgot to mention no elevator. This was fine for us to walk up a few flights, but if you have someone who has mobility issues (such as my senior mother) this would've been a terrible shock. (*so note to the hotel- remind ALL guests, you never know by looking at them who has a bad knee...etc*)
3- the TOWN- it closes down early. After 8pm you'll find only 3 places serving food (besides the ice cream stores). Seriously- what's with that?! :-) But-- do stay in town- it's so lovely and magical at twilight. (if you do the math, you can figure out that that first night, we had trouble finding dinner!)
That's it. We also could never quite figure out how to make our air condition work properly- but that's our fault for not following up with that. it worked, we just couldn't get it cold enough.
Would we stay here again? Absolutely- I'd book the same room.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It is not difficult to find a room for the nights in Rothenburg. One of the loveliest is to be found in the Herrngasse. It goes without saying that to live in a building from the Middle Ages has its attractions. Not luxurious, perhaps, but very comfortable, yet homely in the best sense. The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly, so that an enjoyable stay is assurd. One of the oldest nobleman`s house with individual and stylish interior. ... more less
