This charming, family owned hotel has a perfect location near the Marktplaz. We had room 20, a newly upgraded modern and spacious accommodation. The room was quiet and bed comfortable, yielding a good night’s sleep. The owners were friendly and attentive. The breakfast had a good selection of meats, cheeses and eggs. The car park is an advantage. The entrance... More

We loved this beautiful hotel in Rothenburg! The location is AMAZING - right in the heart of the Old City and right off of the main square. We loved being able to run around Rothenburg and always being able to stop at our hotel for a rest or to pick up something. There was free parking available in the back... More

This was my favorite hotel in all of Germany! I wish I could have stayed longer. Words fail me when I try to describe what the inside of this B&B is like. Do they give tours? I really wonder… there are so many cool things to see inside, and I know that I wasn’t fully appreciating everything. If I could... More

You will step back in time when you visit Rothenburg, but you will not have to give up modern conveniences at Hotel-Gastof Goldner Greifen. This is a family owned and operated establishment. You may even see three generations in and around the facility while you are there. They spoke English well, which was helpful since our German is not so... More

The good things: The hotel is on the cute main street right by the town center. It is run by a nice friendly family. The interior looks and feel old but are well taken care off. Some areas of the floor squeak louder than others. Our room was clean, specious and functional. Big breakfast is included. Served by a friendly... More

Others are enthralled by this hotel. I just think it is an average place to stay. There are dozens of them in the old town. I knocked off stars for several reasons and will elaborate below: No internet in your room Owners were very short and gruff with us during interactions Pillows were the lumpiest things I have ever slept...

Fantastic hotel within the city walls. Lovely staff, big comfortable room and great breakfast. Quiet even though we were in the middle of town. Would definately recommend Rothenburg and this wonderful old hotel.

Parking is key if you are staying in the old city, make sure your hotel provides parking. Hotels here are for sleeping (or crashing after a great night out) "Go to Hell" only pub in the city with a wait list. I recommend the night watchmen tour, same guy doing it for the past 10 years, look like a young... More

This hotel is extremely comfortable, clean, excelent and nice hostess. I am pregnant and we had a problem with the air company, and the hostess helped us to receive our luggages back. It was very kind. We stayed for 2 night in April/2014 (me, my husband and 2 brothers-in-law). It is in the center of Rothenburg, very good location. There... More

My mom and I stayed here in November, and what a nice place. The owners were fantastic, very friendly, we could park right behind the hotel and it is conveniently located right off the main square in Rothenburg. The rooms are large and clean, the food excellent and the place still has a lovely historic feel as the building is... More
