We stayed one night at this old hotel and did not sleep very well. The accommodation is OK, with big rooms, but the location next to the old Town Hall is not so good. The bell there strike every 15 minutes. I thought it would be turned off at midnight, like in most cities, but it went on the whole... More

Uneven staircases, bookshelves with old books, creaking pine floors... a motto painted on the wall outside says "The emperor was a guest here, and here the guest is a king." You come to Nördlingen for the history and atmosphere, and at Hotel Sonne that's what you get, right in the center of town. Ample sized rooms with comfortable creaky beds... More

As commented on by others, this is a very old building right in the heart of Nordlingen. Walking the corridors are an adventure in themselves as the building has settled over the past 600 years. The main stairs are a wonder, sloping and uneven and we laughed everytime we made it to the top.As far as location as access goes,... More

The hotel was built on 1405. We took the Kaisersuite on the 1st floor [no elevator] which was a dream. You may see it in the photos. It was very big with a hall and a big bathroom.Very well equipped, without ruining its 600 years... scent.Very clean. All furnitures were replicas of good taste and comfortable.The big surprise was the... More

This place is right in the central Platz with a nice outdoor restaurant. Breakfast, indoors, was very good and plentiful. A bargain price. But you really feel its ancient age when walking the halls and stairs. Bathroom was old style. Room was comfortable but plain. Desk staff don't speak much English. No internet either.

We arrived in Nordlingen and looked for an hotel in the city center and we choose Hotel Sonne in the central square. The staff was not there when we arrived and we had to wait for a while to meet someone to talk and to ask for a room. They gave us the key of the best room and didn't... More

We were greeted by very friendly staff in this hotel. We stayed here for just one night on our trip along the Romantic Road in Bavaria, Germany, but wish we could have stayed for longer. We were upgraded to a larger room I believe, so that made our stay all the more better. The rooms were spacious, with a small... More

We found this hotel traveling along the Romantic Road with no reservations and just using our GPS to take us to the center of town. There was a small musical fest going on in the town square when we arrived plus lots of outdoor restaurant seating with people watching the World Cup so it was a very festive feel. The... More

We stayed in Noerdlingen for 1 night prior to traveling on to Dinkelsbuehl. The hotel Kaiser Sonne was in an excellent location and very easy to find. We walked there from the train station. Our room was large and bright and looked out over the markt/rathouse platz. . The hotel staff was friendly and spoke good english. I speak some... More
