“Nice clean hotel near old town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2013

I stayed in this hotel in July 2012. I booked this hotel online while in Berlin and made a last minute decision to go to Rothenburg. It lived up to all expectations. Comfortable, clean beds and bathroom. I was on the top floor so it was a little warm but a fan and the breeze cooled the room in the afternoons.

We came for one night and enjoyed it. Nice place, parking in, like 10 minutes by walk from center. Clean a lovely german hotel. I'm a deep sleeper and had a great sleep, but my friend sleeps very light and had issue with the traffic.

If you're travelling by train, this is ideal hotel as the station is on the other site of the street.

The hotel is average, friendly personell, rooms look ok, the location is next to the train station and not far away from the old city center, offers free parking. The rooms are cheap, but they are smelly, because half of the rooms are for smokers.

Room Tip: non-smoker room

This hotel was a good value for the price. The rooms were small but practical. The front desk staff spoke enough english to be helpful. They offer to mail postcards home and they have internet. The breakfast is typically german, cold cuts, grains and eggs. The lady who ran the front desk Monday through Friday came off as rude but really wasn't. She just couldn't communicate well with english speaking guests but we stayed several days and she turned out to be a very thoughtful hostess. The younger staff spoke good english and they were helpful. They helped us find a laundry mat. About the hot water, its funny really....The water that comes into these older buildings is coming from a far away place so when you turn the hot water on in the shower, there is none: long-story-short, you have to let the water in the shower run about 5 to 10 minutes before the hot water appears but once it appears- its HOT!

We payed 68€ for a double room. The carpets was smelling of mold, the tv-set didn't work, the bath tube was dirty and it was bugs in the bathroom.

But, the lispin girl in Dirndl dress at the desk was nice.

It's located at the train station, a ten minutes walk from the old town

Very easy to find and although it is right opposite the railway station and on a busy road, quite quiet in the room. Very easy to walk into the old town in 10 minutes. This seems to be a hotel in transition - our room had been upgraded but the general appearance of the hotel was more old-fashioned. Room was bright and pleasantly decorated. Towels were very thin - we used our own. Breakfast buffet was acceptable but nothing to write home about. Helpful staff and good overall atmosphere.

Hotel Rothenburger Hof is right across the street from the Rothenburg ob der Tauber train station - you can't miss it. This makes it very convenient for travelers arriving by train or driving the Romantic Road. The hotel has a parking lot for guests.

I chose this hotel because I was making a last minute trip to Rothenburg od T and it was one of the few places that still had rooms available. I booked my stay through Expedia. I arrived mid-morning, well in advance of the 2pm check-in time. Fortunately my room was immediately available. I was shown a corner room on the 2nd floor overlooking the train station by the friendly innkeeper. She showed me how to get in the hotel after hours and explained that breakfast was served from 7 to 10 downstairs. The room itself was very clean and fairly big. Furniture consisted of a comfortable double bed, desk, separate table and chairs, plus a wardrobe. The bathroom was also of good size and had a combination shower/tub.

During the day, from dawn to dusk, there is a lot of traffic noise because the hotel sits right on a major road. However at night the traffic dies off and I wasn't bothered by any road noise while sleeping.

My first morning I had to wait quite a while for hot water to make it to the shower. I suspect it was because I had gotten up late, around 8:30 am, and the tour group that had checked in the previous afternoon had drained the hot water tanks. I had no problems with hot water the following morning.

Breakfast is included in the room rate. A selection of cold cuts and cheeses, along with various breads and rolls, yogurt, fruit, cereal and juices is laid out buffet style in the dining room. Coffee is available on request. To me the breakfast was very substantial and quite good. I really miss those fresh, crusty rolls slathered with butter and jam!

In the lobby there is a sofa, chairs and tables where you can relax with a cold beer or two after a day of sightseeing.

It is an easy 15 minute walk from the hotel to the main square in the old town of Rothenburg. Even late at night I felt perfectly safe walking alone from town back to the hotel.

Besides the hotel's dining room there are other places to eat nearby. For example I took dinner one night at the Gasthof Post down the street where I had an excellent pork cutlet. And of course there are all kinds of restaurants and cafes in Rothenburg's old town. Oh, by the way, there is a Burger King some 300 meters from the hotel if you're in the need for fast food. And there's a small shopping center nearby.

For cash there is a bank just down the street from the hotel which has 24 hour multi-lingual ATM machines.

If you don't mind not being right in the Old Town itself, this hotel in my opinion is a very good value and I would definitely stay here again if I ever return to Rothenburg.

Incidentally this hotel apparently is very popular with Japanese bus tour groups as I saw three different tour groups come through during my three day stay. Which explains why there are so many trip reviews posted on this site in Japanese!
