Exuding charm from every corner, Hotel Gotisches Haus was the most incredible and restful place we stayed while in Europe. We had a room with a balcony and enjoyed evenings sitting outside overlooking the rooftops of the town while sipping a bottle of wine. Our time there couldn't have been any more wonderful.
The room was lovely with a small sitting area in addition to the bed area. The bathroom was spacious and the rooms were quite clean. The hotel itself is quite historic and it was good to see everything kept that way. Everything you need for a comfortable stay is "modern," yet the hotel retains its historic look and feel. For instance, there is a small lift for when you are transporting luggage up and down to your room, but when you don't have any luggage, be sure to walk the stairs. The heavy timbers and the sparsely, yet distinctively decorated landings are worth seeing.
The lobby and breakfast area feels like a museum (I saw more than one small tour group quietly pass through admiring the surroundings). The breakfast was wonderful and the staff is more than accommodating.
The location can't be beat, right in the heart of where you want to be and yet the street is nice and quiet. Parking was available nearby; the Hotel staff gave us a pass to put in our car windshield while there (we never used our car once in town).
We will revisit Rothenburg o.d.T. this year and the first thing I did was to check availability at Hotel Gotisches Haus. Alas! No rooms available, but mark my words, we will return!
Tip: Be sure to walk the wall! So much to see - from the wall, on the wall... And the views are wonderful in both directions! And whatever you do, don't miss the Night Watchman's Tour! Enjoy!

Stayed here for two nights for the xmas markets. Beautiful hotel dating back 700+ years but well remodelled and extremely close to all the sights. 80m or so the markets square and the main shopping precinct, even less to Kathe Wohlfahrt xmas stores. Short stroll to one of the town gates where you can climb up the walls and walk around the city (there are stairs going down periodically if you get tired). The room was spacious and very comfortable (worth the extra money for the top floor suite - room 34 on the 4th floor) with a balcony area looking out over the countryside and a window at the front looking over the street lined with historic buildings. Also has a giant spa tub, separate toilet, nice couch and a small fridge. The lift does not go to the top floor and you have to climb a short narrow spiral staircase so if that is a problem you might consider one of the lower floor rooms. Breakfast was very nice and the service in general was excellent, particularly Axel who made every effort to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Car parking for 5E via a voucher obtained from the front desk. Wifi was free and worked well. A very nice Italian restaurant across the road served some great food. Apparently Xmas happens all year round here so we may return when the weather is better and if we do we will definitely stay here.

In the main street, only 2 minutes from market on a quiet spot was this nice, romantic, hotel our most luxurious hotel of our trip to romantische strasse. Nice room and large bathroom ( no. 10) with very nice breakfast room, very old building, but nice renovated. Friendly girls in local dirndl clothes served the breakfast, the car was parked in front of the hotel with low cost parking permit of the hotel. In short, we can recommend this hotel as top-hotel of Rothenburg.

Room Tip: we shared room 10 1e floor, at the backside, very quiet, big bathroom. Car with hotel permit within...

My husband and I stayed here in early July 2013 - we stayed in the top floor suite. I love that room because it is extra spacious and we had our own balcony overlooking the countryside where we spent each night with a glass of wine overlooking the city wall and country. The location was perfect for a short walk to the main square and the staff was extremely friendly. Breakfast was great and the decor of the hotel is really neat. You feel like you are really experiencing a sense of the Rothenburg times staying in this hotel. I was concerned that it may be hot on the top floor with no air conditioning, but we just opened the shutters and it was perfect! The town quiets down by 10pm so we didn't have any issues with noise either. I recommend this hotel and the top floor suite is a must!

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...
