Driving through Rothenburg is not easy but this charming small hotel got us sorted very easily. There are about half a dozen rooms above one of the best restaurants in town and these are extremely comfortable, attractive and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we thought the overall cost was extremely reasonable for this sort of quality,... More

How lucky we consider ourselves to be to have found the Gasthaus Alter Keller. Located above a marvelous local restaurant (reviewed elsewhere), we found it's location to be outdone only by the comfort of the room. We booked the family room - which consists of two bedrooms (each with a double bed and extra seating) and a bathroom off a... More

At first glance, this place may not seem special: four clean, basic rooms above a restaurant, close to the center of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. However, what makes it a fantastic place to stay is the friendly service. When I arrived, greeted by Markus, I instantly felt comfortable, even before seeing the room. There's a big difference between a stiff,... More

Small B&B a short walk from the center within the wall. We had two connected rooms and one bath. Beautiful, simply decorated and spacious rooms with comfortable beds. Very quiet at night. Gracious English speaking hosts. Good internet. Wonderful German breakfast with many choices. They even set up breakfast early on our departure day. Warning: this is a very old... More

This is such a quaint hotel with excellent rooms and the restaurant has great Bavarian food. We slept so well that we overslept and missed the included breakfast by about an hour. When we went to check out the very nice owner asked if we wanted her to make us a breakfast- it was great! I highly recommend this hotel... More

Fantastic place, just a second of walking from the central square. Perfect choice for a couple or even for family. Restaurant served excellent Bavarian food. All the atmosphere like you are back to the 1300s.

My husband and I stayed at Alter Keller with two sets of our married friends. We stated in the double room and the other 2 sets stayed in the family room (2 doubles 1 bathroom). The pictures don't do this place justice- great location, beautiful rooms with gorgeous hard wood floors and eclectic furniture. Comfy, clean and convenient- couldnt ask... More

Gasthaus Alter Keller was an absolutely great choice and experience for our family. The building reportedly dates back to the 1300s, and retains a great deal of character. Renovations did not destroy its charm. The restaurant served excellent food, and the portions were large. They even had limited outdoor café-style seating. The proprietors were very personable and helpful. Rather than... More

A quiet little square with bubbling fountain, no traffic sounds, just the sound of the city in the distance, fantastic food and hosts, authentic Germany. That is the Alter Keller. I have been eating here for years and now and so excited to be able to sleep there! They just opened a handful of rooms and I have already booked... More

We stayed at Alter Keller Gasthaus for two nights (May 31-June 2). It was amazing, the rooms are brand new and wonderful. It's a small guest house and you feel like you are staying with your greatest friends. The breakfast was wonderful, and super fresh and delicious. The hospitality was great, always there to help and make sure we were... More
