“Charming and interesting hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

This hotel matches the rest of the old Rothenburg. A high-tech hotel would have been so out of place in a town like this. We were in 108 facing the street. The room was very large and with a sitting area, a large 32" flat screen and a very large double-sink bathroom with bot shower and bathtub. Also, it had quite a big hall with a fridge, and closets. The hotel occupies several buildings and has elevators (at least in the part of it we saw), You could hear the traffic in the cobbled street but that just added to the whole feeling of being in an medieval town. Lots af charming shops and sights nearby as well as restaurants. We had dinner in the hotels restaurant. It was very good, the price was fair (3 courses with wine menu,for 45 euros per person) and the service was really excellent. We asked to be moved to the bar area as there was a noisy family (small children) in the restaurant, and they set up a table for us there without any fuss. We parked across the street which was free till 10 in the morning, but they also have valet parking for 10 euros per night. All in all, we were very very happy with this stay,and will most likely return again.

The hotel has a good location and also is an excellent hotel.

I just had the feeling that the lady at the reception could have been more professional. Her atittude towards guest and employees was not positive.

Rothenburg at Christmas is magical. We spent one night here and wish we had spent at least one more. It is in the heart of Rothenburg. Our daughters are 14 and 12. We had adjoining balconies overlooking the valley (Rooms 119 and 120). Even though it was raining, we loved this town and this hotel. You feel you are stepping into a medieval mansion. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The staff seemed a bit aloof. However, you are not really bothered by this as the location is perfect for Christmas exploring.

Room Tip: We overheard a couple of people checking out the morning we were checking out complain about the noi...

Just enjoyed three nights pre Christmas in Rothenburg. Lots of history and a walk around the town wall is a must! The Eisenhut is a real treasure with a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere and the Christmas Market is on the doorstep. All the hotel staff were very polite and helpful.

We booked here back in the summer to stay here for the first night of the Christmas Market. We had been to Rothenburg before but never stayed, so glad we did. The hotel even accommodated our big and very friendly dog, Tanner :) From check-in and the porter helping with bags and parking our truck for us...to drinks in the bar later that night and a great breakfast in the morning we had a wonderful stay.
Highly recommend the night watchman tour and dinner at the restaurant Glocke, a short walk but again, very worth it. Friendly staff, great Franconian food AND they make their own wine :)))
Yes, I am raving about how awesome our trip was...but really, it was. Highly recommend The Eisenut...perfect location and price.

First of all you have to understand that rothenburg odt is a very unique and beautiful city. You travel through time to medieval times with the glamour. Eisenhut is the best place to stay within this beauty. Hotel is authentic and the buildings are kept as they were in couple of hundred years back. Rooms are nicely decorated without ruining the illusion and the hotel itself is like a museum. You have to go through floor by floor to absorb every setting. It is located in the heart of town. Across the street you will find probably the biggest christmas store in Europe. It is located a few steps away from the marktplatz. It has a beautiful restaurant with very good food. Breakfast is rich and tasty. Rooms over looking to the valley has glamorous views. What more can I say. Been there before, will go again. I definitely recommend this hotel.
