“Comfort, economy and tradition all in one”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

It was a joy to stay in this place. Klaus could not have been more helpful. It was like staying with a family. A superb breakfast away a the top of this very old A-framed building, located in the centre of the town it was in easy reach of all the attacks. Klaus also runs a grocery store but his range includes an amazing range of model railway items. The tariff was remarkably low and we felt this was one of the accommodation highlights on our trip. Thoroughly recommend.

We had such a nice stay here. Klaus and his father were so welcoming and made the place very personable with a huge feel of "family owned". The grocery store connected to it with the same owners is great as well. Very convenient and the breakfast was really good as well. Good, easy to find location and nice, clean rooms. Great stay in Rothenburg!

First of all, Rothenburg is simply amazing! Pension Elke is perfect! We had a triple and stayed in rooms 10 and 11 which are actually a few doors down from the pension. We felt like we had our own little flat. Very charming and wonderful views over the rooftops. Spotless and very comfortable. Klaus and his father, Erich, were so helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was wonderful! Pension Elke is inside the walls of the city, but one of the closest hotels to the train station - 8 minutes at the most.
Don't miss the Night Watchman Tour - one of the best hours spent in Europe! Also walk the walls of the city and go to the castle garden - beautiful. Rothenburg is one of our very favorite towns!

Just back from two nights in Rothenburg. Two nights and a day or day and a half is about right and this is a fine place to stay. Inexpensive, clean, friendly hosts, great breakfast in a wonderful location. I was in room 6, a single with in-suite bathroom at the end of the hall. The pension is a 10-15 minute walk from the train station, above a small and very interesting grocery store and run by a father and son who are very hospitable, welcoming and helpful. They gave me packing materials and tape to help me safely get pottery home in my suitcase.

Rothenburg deserves a one night stay. Pension Elke is the smart choice here. It's location within the city walls and one block from the main town square are perfect. Klaus and Erich are extremely friendly and most helpful. The ground floor of the pension is an actual market that stocks everything from fresh fruits and vegetables, cheeses and meats to a full line of beverages. The rooms are basic, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is terrific, thanks to the market downstairs. Free parking is available within a block from the pension.

Don't expect a five star accommodation but a honest and clean place to stay on a perfect location in the center of the historic city. The hosts are friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and the breakfast was also very OK. An excellent stay for a short period.

This is a bed & breakfast above a grocery store, what a beautiful place. We had room #2 spacious with our own sink all thought we did share a bathroom as we only stayed one night. We wished we’d stayed longer. The walk from the train station was about 10 minutes. Klaus and Erich, ( father & son ) are great hosts. The breakfast was unbelievable, too many items to list, but the best you’ll ever see and taste. The décor and setting for breakfast is something you’ll always remember. They even have wine by the glass in the grocery store, lots of places to eat, and bakeries too. You are very close to the market square and the start of the night watchman’s tour. I would recommend the ELKE without hesitation.

Room Tip: We liked room #2 but you had to share the bathroom down the hall. Room #2 has its own sink but don...
