“Beautiful, charming and terrific location”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

This hotel was in the exact perfect place for walking everywhere and it was absolutely charming. The bed was comfortable, the bath was huge and well equipped and the décor was wonderful. Our room looked out over the street and was quiet. We wished we had more time to stay there. Rothenburg was our favorite town for shopping and walking around. Don't miss the Night Watchman's Tour or "Hell" Restaurant. Both were terrific.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the deluxe room. They are huge.

I don't think you can go wrong with any hotel in Rothenberg. Your challenge is to choose between all the options. We did not take the train. We have a large car and were able to park on street for 5 euro (the hotel sold us the town parking permit to display on the dash) in a designated parking spot within meters of the hotel. Our GPS easily navigated thru the maze of one-way streets to get to the hotel. It is very conveniently located 100m from the main square, and 2 doors down from Hotel Eisenhut.
This particular hotel has parts that date back to the 1360s, but you'd never know it thru lack of amenities. The photographs on the website are very accurate. We stayed in room 10. It had no view to speak of, but the bathroom was huge with very modern shower and jetted tub and a double sink/vanity. We enjoyed a small sofa, coffee table and writing desk on one end of the room, and a double bed frame with two, single mattresses. In this bed, the seam was not very pronounced. The pillows are large, but flat. You can request others/additional pillows if you want a more robust pillow. There is a large, multi-purpose reception room as you enter the hotel. It is here you'd have breakfast, coffee and pastries during the day, or a cocktail in a cafe-style seating area. Breakfast was a small buffet style with a reasonable selection: cereals, cold meats, smoked salmon, cheeses, breads , fruit, sausages and eggs made to order brought to the table. You could choose from a variety of fruit juices, teas, or have coffee or sparkling wine for a mimosa. The owner, Axel, was friendly and gave recommendations for dining and places to visit. He was ably supported by a small, willing and friendly staff proficient in English and German. Axel said he attempted to create a home away from home and we think he succeeded.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 10. It had no view to speak of, but the bathroom was huge with very modern shower...

We had a great time at the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We even left our lame Pomeranian with "Uncle Axel" for a few hours while we shopped. The location is great and it is very easy to see so much in the old town. We will be back.

We loved this hotel! We stayed 2 nights. It is over 700 years old and has a tremendous amount of charm. The staff was incredibly friendly and hospitable. The included breakfast was simple, but excellent. The rooms are very clean and well furnished. The bathroom is very large with a large bathtub and good sized shower. Our view from our window was amazing. The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of the walled city and is close to everything. Will return to this hotel in the future.

To start the building is over 700 years old and was very nicely remodeled. Located inside the ancient walled city of Rothenburg and within walking distance to everything. Our suite was very large by local standards and had a large bathroom. Showering was a challenge since there was no shower curtain. The sitting room had wall to wall windows facing the street and a small fridge which we made use of. Upon request a tall fan was provided for our comfort. The beer vending machine on the main floor came in handy after hours. The proprietor, Axel Rüter, was very helpful and most professional, he would bend over backwards to make you happy. Breakfast was a delicious buffet with eggs to order. It is a really nice place from which to see the city.

Room Tip: They are all good.

My husband and I loved this hotel. It was amazing. Everything about it!! It was romantic. The decor was just lovely. The candlelit breakfast was delicious. The staff was so helpful and hospitable. Our room was spotless and had so much old world charm. We stayed in room 30 which had a wonderful balcony. We will most definitely return one day and stay again. Loved it!!!

My husband and I considered spending more money and staying at one of the luxury hotels. But I am glad we didn't! The entrance way is enchanting and the rooms are beautifully decorated. The atmosphere is fantastic and completely medieval. It is a treat walking in for the first time. The bathroom was huge!

There are only 11 rooms, 3 to a floor. It's very quiet and close to the main plaza and everything else. The owner squeezed us in early before check in time which was much appreciated. This cute medieval boutique hotel lives up to the online hype.

The staff struggle with English which is fine because that is to be expected. But they had a tough time, so I recommend you be sure you know what you are asking. For instance, we asked where we could find coin operated laundry and away we went with our dirty clothes into a restaurant. I laugh now, but we were slightly grumpy about it at the time.

They don't have much of menu, so when you are stuck because all the restaurants close at odd days and hours, you can't rely on the hotel for food.

I highly recommend staying here! Amazing!

Room Tip: There is one coin operated laundry facility outside the walls. It took us 5 minutes to drive there...
