“Charming atmosphere and wonderful location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

This was a 2nd stay. It was a wonderful place to be during Christmas season- convenient, cozy, and nicely decorated for Christmas. Breakfast excellent. Rooms comfortable, very traditional - no frills, but just what we wanted. Parking available and prices were reasonable. Perfect for us.

Room Tip: No elevator so if stairs a problem, ask for ground/1st floor

This was our second stay at the Gerberhaus. We stayed in the lower level apartment, which is accessible through the back gate of the hotel. We had a quadruple room for 2 adults and 2 children. Our room had a bedroom and the family room had a bed that was made from a futon or couch. There was also a little kitchen with a refrigerator/freezer, sink, microwave, and stove. The bathroom was relatively small, but adequate. There was only a shower, and you had to be careful not to get the rest of the bathroom floor wet. There also wasn't really any place to set your toiletries. Not a terribly big deal. We were able to park our rental car for free in the alleyway behind the hotel.

We thought the breakfast was delicious and the service was very good. We love the city, and the location of the hotel is quite nice. It was an easy walk to the Christmas Market and other shopping and dining.

We paid 185 euros per night, which was quite a bit more than we paid six years ago. We did enjoy having the extra space that the apt affords.

We stayed here for 3 nights in June 2011 as part of a two week roadtrip through Germany. It was easy to get to thanks to our GPS. There is parking for a fee in a small garage attached to the hotel. It only holds a handful of cars and you must give them your car keys to let others in and out. The room we had was a triple on the top floor. It was decent enough, a little bigger than the Europe standard. There is no elevator, but we are young and able. The hotel has a computer on the second floor with internet access. The little cafe that was there was a great touch. We bought some 'apfel streudel' and a local beer and sat on the couches in the nice garden area in the back. I recommend this place because it so within the Rothenburg walls about a 10 minute walk from the main square so not many tourists around the hotel throughout the day compared to just a few blocks away. Also, because you are inside the walls it is much easier and nicer to see the town when the tourists are at a minimum. Make sure you do the night watchmen tour and if you have time, do that tour again but on your own because he takes you to some nice spots that only get much better because tourists aren't surrounding you. It gives a much better feel of the quaintness of the town. Oh and the breakfast was great, more generous than other offerings.

Have just returned from Rothenburg, having spent 3 days there for the Christmas Markets. Rothenburg itself is absolutely magical. The buildings are stunning, the market was great and the people friendly.
Hotel Gerberhaus had very friendly staff and the room itself was a very good size. The bed was comfy, the room was warm and the bathroom was clean. However we were in Room 5 and right behind our bed was the bathroom of the room next door. This would be fine if the guests in that room dont decide to have a bath and shower every morning at 6am! The stairway is just stone steps (no carpet), so again there was alot of noise coming from there.
Breakfast the first morning was good, plenty of choice including a hot egg dish. The second day was a totally different experience. There were no rolls (the lady had to go out to the shops and purchase some), no eggs, hardly any meat or cheese and I was very disappointed and it seemed a bit chaotic with too many people for the amount of food prepared. We got up early on the third morning to make sure of having breakfast but to be honest when I am on holiday I like to get up and have a leisurely breakfast. Also on the web site it says the cafe is open until 11.00pm. This was not the case. It shut by 6.00pm and we were told that they do not sell meals just cakes and drinks anyway, so every night you had to walk into the centre of the town to get a meal. We did find a great restaurant called The BurgerKellar, just a little way off the main square. Food was great and the owner very friendly.
So to sum up, if the Hotel is not busy it is a very pleasant place to stay, but I would probably not stay there again.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 5

This was my third stay at this hotel. We love the location of the hotel and the rooms, beds are quite comfortable.

The breakfast choices are excellent, fruit, yogurts, cereals asst breads and rolls, meats and cheeses.

Rothenburg is a great base to visit other towns on the Romantic road, and also enjoy Rothenburg after the tour buses have left.

Also make sure to join the Night Watchman tour in the evening, it starts from the Town Hall every evening.

Room Tip: Be sure to book early.

We drove from Frankfurt airport and when we arrived, knowing nothing about the layout of the town or property, Inge welcomed us warmly, showed us where the garage was to park the car and then showed us to our lovely spacious room, which overlooked the cobbled street and the old houses of this beautifully preserved town. The room and en-suite were well appointed and the entire little hotel had a comfortable, homely feel with lovely decorator touches. The pretty garden area allowed for comfortable outdoor dining, relaxing or having a drink from the bar. Blankets were provided for laps when dusk settled and it got cool. We were a picturesque short walk to the town square. Breakfast was very enjoyable, with an excellent selection of tasty items and strong, delicious hot coffee was plentiful. The dining room was beautifully decorated. Evening meals were also served in house, if requested. We had such a lovely stay and I would recommend Hotel Gerberhaus for couples wanting to stay in a small, friendly, family-run hotel.
