Gasthaus Zum Riesen
Ranked #1 of 6 Miltenberg B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 May 2008

We stayed here a Saturday evening in April. According to the hotel it's Germany's oldest "gasthof".

The hotel is fantastic, very old and beautiful building. Being an old building the rooms are smallish, but very well appointed. We guessed that the room had has an interior decorator to do it up. The fabric/weave on one wall and the roof of the four poster bed, was matched with the walls. But the older woman who runs the hotel had added "personal" touches, such as angels, dried and plastic flowers.
The room was very clean, and comfortable.

The restaurant in the bottom of the hotel is run by someone else
http://www.riesen-miltenberg.de, it's absolutely fantastic. Mixed generations, great beer, good food, and lively. We spent our Saturday evening there.

The town itself is in beautiful surroundings, castles, rivers, woods, and not at all far from autobahn.
I strongly recommend a visit.

Please note that we called in advance to book a room, the hotel doesn't have a website, the woman wasn't all that interested in making sure there was a room. She didn't take a name and so on. When we arrived she didn't react when we said we called the night before. However we did get a room, and since it was low season maybe that was her assumption.

This old inn is not in Hesse but in the southern portion of Deutschland on the river Main. We spent two nights here back in October 1999 and enjoyed our stay very much. The innkeepers were apparently a charming old Jewish couple. The hotel is on the upper floors (has an elevator) with the tavern on the first floor and is not part of the hotel. This is the old inn that Martin Luther was reported to have spent a night.
