“Excellent charming hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Spectaular town, awesome hotel. Building is from the 12 century and maintains its structure. The room we has was very large with soaker tub and shower, plenty of space with a nice bed. Elevevator, free breakfast, free parking and some awesome staff, very friendly, and helpful. Helps if you know some German however.

Be careful driving into Rothenburg; many of the streets are impassable. Our daughter and I were trying to locate a recommended hotel to find there was "no room in the inn". We thought to drive and just check to see who had vacancy. Turning down one narrow street we had to reverse and back up as the trash truck in front of us also had to backup. Only one way in and backing up to return. That return put us in front of the Hotel Goldener Hirsch. Lovely front and sign, and ,yes, they could accommodate us. It was the last leg of our trip and money was running thin. We read that there is a 2% charge if you use a credit card. We paid 135 Euro for one night and charged the second night. The owner did not add on the 2%. There are a few steps to a lift. Our second floor room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The windows opened to a spectacular viel of the valley and mountains. It was a nice way to end our trip.
There is parking available for 7 Euro a day, just around another corner, within a block.
Breakfast was generous and very nice. The dining hall also overlooks the valley; a nice place to relax and not feel rushed. Owners and staff were very helpful and polite. We often saw their little son walking around and observing people; a good education for him.
Overnight tours often stay here as we discovered the next morning when we went down to breakfast and 50 some people had gathered waiting for the dining room to open. We went for a walk and returned later; there was still plenty of food and chafers were being refilled.
The hotel is quiet; we never heard any of these other guests. Lovely people and a lovely hotel in a lovely town.

Room Tip: Room 218 overlooked the valley and mountains; very quiet.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It was easy to find and the parking provided was simple to navigate.

We were really surprised at the size of the rooms. Ours was massive! We had a hallway/entrance, a smaller bathroom with toilet, then the main room with a little dining nook, a mini lounge area, sinks and of course the bed. We were at the back of the hotel so we had views out over the wall and beyond.

Service was great. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon after the tourist information centre had closed but the lady at check in gave us all the information we needed.

Breakfast the next day was really good in a room once again looking out over the wall.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here just before Christmas, we had a room at the front of the Hotel, could not fault it, spacious and very comfortable.
Large bathroom with load of hot water.
Staff were friendly and helpful, only downside was the lack of a bar, although they did supply drinks from behind the front desk.
Good location within the City Walls and a large car park not too far away.
There are plenty of good eating establishments close at hand, but did enjoy the selection, though expensive, available in the Christmas Markets.
Don't forget to walk with the Night Watchman.

In an effort to explore local attractions, we stayed at the Goldener Hirsch. Our experience was delightful! The hotel and room was absolutely charming. The staff made us so very welcome! Ryan, was especially helpful and gave us great advice on local deals. Also, a very comfortable night sleep in a very comfortable bed!

This place was so perfect! They have free parking behind the building which is hard to find in town. Its pedestrian only. Right next to the main town square. Our room with king bed was spacious and the bath with shower was large as well. Breakfast was great! Would definitely stay here again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We stayed here 2 nights. The location is fantastic! When we checked in we were told the room would not be ready for 30 min. to an hour, which was not a problem since we were meeting some friends for kaffee & kuchen. When we did return to get checked in they couldn't locate the key to our room, we were sent to our room with the master key - once we got to the room we discovered someone else was already occupying the room. My husband went back to the front desk to explain the situation, the woman at the front desk didn't seem to believe my husband so she came back to the room to check. She then went to several other rooms (with us tagging behind) until she found a room that was unoccupied. The room she gave us had a phenomenal view, but was incredibly tiny and looked very shabby (and not in the shabby chic sort of way). My husband went back down to discuss the room and afterwards we were given a larger room just upstairs from our original room. I got the feeling that they may have been doing a bit of remodeling/refurbishing - I hope that is the case. The staff seemed a bit aloof and disorganized. It is a great location with some amazing views from the backside of the hotel, but I don't think we would stay here again.
