We were looking for a place to stay centrl to the old part of Rothenburg and this was perfect. I don't expect much from a hotel, clean, comfortable, because it's not where I'm spending my time. and I don't need to be waited on. Hotel zur Sonne is located an easy block off the central square in the heart of... More

This is a review of the restaurant only; can't find it as a separate listing on TA. Excellent food. Expensive -- 20 euro pp for lunch (water or soda and entree). Staff was very nice, very nice decor, great bathrooms, cozy on a winter day. Selection was pretty good; the venison ragout was outstanding and the venison steak was tasty... More

We were travelling as a family of four (2 adults and 2 kids, 1 toddler and an infant), hence the triple room worked out perfectly for us. (we brought along our own cot bed). We had room # 8 which was facing the street , but since the main tourist hordes leave Rothenburg by 5-6pm, the nights are very very... More

We found the staff to be unpleasant (especially the man who I believe is the owner) and the room to be dim and dingy. The lighting in the room needs to be updated and brightened. The room was advertised for four people and, while the room is large, the old sofa bed is not appropriate for two adults. The location... More

This guesthouse is literally a minute from the main square where the Christkindlemarkt is and is probably central to all you want to see in Rothenburg. The hotel itself is new, clean and inviting and the rooms are just as good. Our room #6 was at the rear and side overlooking the terrace. With opening windows it was nice and... More

This was a nice enough hotel and good location, but the room was pretty small. It was adequate, and the service was good, but the WiFi service was so slow that it was no better than having no Internet service.

The Sonne Hotel is located in the middle of the touristic centre. It's next to the grand place and located in a very nice street. The service was really good and helpfull. What I like as well they have their own parking just around the corner. The room was big and all comfort present. Both restaurant and breakfast is good.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Rothenburg which was enhanced by this hotel's proximity to the town square in this pedestrian town. The breakfast was tasty with many options. As others have said, parking is convenient and secure in a garage up the street. We were especially impressed with the staff who pried the suitcases out of our hands to... More

I wanted to stay back here since I was there a few years ago and found it really good. I was more impressed this time! First off, the staff were even more friendlier than I remembered!!! The car park was a nice garage just around back, the room was spacious and clean and the bathroom was upgraded nicely and was... More

We really couldn't fault this hotel from the outset - certainly, we were grateful for the weary member of staff who stayed up till 1.40 am to let us in! Parking is handily tucked around the back of the premises. The entrance of the hotel seems somewhat at odds with the period exterior. The high, brightly lit ceiling is dazzling... More
