Located in the old town, this is a good mid range option. Rooms are adequate and quiet, staff are helpful and the breakfasts good. Rothenburg is a charming old town with plenty to offer. a 3 night stay would be recommended.

About 2 blocks after you enter Rothenburg through one of the 6 city gates, on your right is the hotel. Really it is a bakery/cafe (as we were told - not a restaurant) with a hotel above. So you turn right down the ally to park on the right then check in downstairs at the bakery. Staff friendly and efficient.... More

We visited the cafe here, while on a two day visit to Rothenburg. We ordered a couple of pastries, both of which turned out to be dry and stale. We ordered a pot of hot chocolate, which holds about 3 and a half cups, and the server, one of the owners, brought us two cups of hot chocolate. My wife... More

I stayed here with my five friends in January 2013. It was a relaxing and comfortable experience. Our room was very nice and had all the necessary things. Staff was very generous and polite. They tried their best to make us feel at home and never refused us for any services. Coffee and hot snacks they provided in the late... More

This hotel is very conveniently located, just inside the gate and above a pastry shop, what could be better? I have stayed here several times and even brought a small school group here. It is the kind of place you don't have to worry so much about when traveling with children: a simple, not too new decor and very clean.... More

We were 4 travellers and had the apartment in the hotel just before in late December 2012. The check-in at the hotel was slightly strange, since you have to ask at the counter in the cafe - definitely not your traditional check-in counter! The check-in procedure itself was very smooth though. The apartment, up two flights of fairly narrow stairs,... More

Great position only short walk from train station and from the old town. Above a cafe, beautiful smells of kitchen arose-snee balls an absolute treat here. Room was clean and spacious. Included breakfast satisfying.

Stayed with my family of 5 for 3 nights while touring southern Germany. Was a little apprehensive after reading the "bed bug" review. However, our experience was the exact opposite. Sure, it's an old inn and the decor is dated...mid 1970's. We stayed in a very roomy top floor apartment. Two bedrooms. The master with a king bed faced the... More
