We had never stayed in a 600 year old building so thought this would be a good place to experience life in the 16th Century. Our conclusion is that life in the 1500s hadn't become much brighter--at least indoors--since the Dark Ages.
It took a while to adjust to the darkness as we entered. As there is no "front desk" and no one was there to greet us, we weren't sure we were in the right place. We called out and the manager appeared from what must have been the kitchen. Without so much as a "welcome", he gave us our room key, showed us where to park our car and advised us that their restaurant/bar would not be open this evening.
As previous reviewers have mentioned, the entire place is cluttered with... stuff. Our dimly lit room had a huge, ominous portrait of a lady peering out as us as we lay in bed and there was very little room to store our luggage and still be able to move around. The bathroom reminded my wife of the one in her parent's camper--ready access to the sink when sitting on the toilet.
The breakfast was the highlight of our stay and improved the overall rating from a 2 to a 3. The charm of living in the dark and dreary 16th Century quickly wore off. We will look for more modern and friendly accommodations on our next visit to Rothenburg.
