“Best Hotel on Europe Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

This is a wonderful hotel - we stayed in room #3 - rooms are huge and had a marble bath with a separate large garden tub! Hotel service was wonderful - also the only hotel where we stayed in Germany that had an elevator - albeit small but hey, you get tired of schlepping that luggage up and down the stairs! But here - the hotel manager carried it for us!!! Great location close to the markt platz - expensive but worth the extra $$. Take the Nightwatchman tour! You'll love it!! New owners renamed the hotel to the Hotel BurgGartenpalais from the Meistertrunk.....

Room Tip: Don't think there's a bad room here - quiet at night as the city pretty much closes down - e...

We spent one night at the Burggartenpalais, and would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay in Rothenburg. This charming place is located within the walled city - a couple of the reviews that we read on Tripadvisor prior to booking this place suggested that it was quite an old hotel - if yes, it has obviously been done up (and quite well at that) recently. Being a family of 3 (2 adults and a 6 year old) we had put in a request for a large king-sized bed -although they were not able to meet this request, the hotel did give us an extremely spacious room where a 3rd bed could be easily accommodated. The room had air conditioning - not something that you can take for granted in most places that are that old. The furniture and the bathroom were also quite modern.

The staff was also quite friendly and helpful. The breakfast menu was quite adequate, and this was one of the few hotels among the 8-9 that that we stayed in over a 2 week period that gave us a choice on our eggs for breakfast (most other places would only just give you a boiled egg).

Parking is available both on the street outside, as well behind the hotel at a fee of EUR 5/ night. Rothenburg being a small town, we were able to walk through the entire town in a short while.

All in all, an extremely pleasant stay, though not exactly cheap.

Four hundred year old hotel in pristine condition - Large room - quality fittings - attentive service - good breakfast - off street parking - what else does one need!

An overnight stop for us, inside the wonderful walled village of Rothenberg, the BurgGarten is high quality for service and charm, close to all you need to see. Squeaky four poster bed a small problem.

Room Tip: We had a top room at front, on 1st floor, but lookout for the squeaky four post bed, lol

Stayed here for two nights. Great welcome and personal service from the owner.
Only two problems- the airconditioning was inactive due to a fire and the quaint canopied bed creaked

Good choice, the owner receives customers at the reception.
There is a lift and the rooms are spacious.

We stayed at this very nice hotel for 2 nights. Very nice room. Very nice location except for the bar across the street, downstairs from the shop on the corner.

It sounded like there were dozens of people out on the street until 3 am each night. It turned out to be like 3 or 4 people (having loud fun) coming out of the bar for a smoke?? This noise was the only negative at this place. Everything else was great. Might be a good idea to ask about this to see if they somehow have corrected it when making a reservation. Other hotels within that block would have the same problem.

The breakfast is great. The garden in the back is beautiful.

Take away the bar noise and we would have rated 5.

Room Tip: Ask if the bar noise has been eliminated. If not get a room off the street. Or ask the manager, Jo...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
It is not difficult to find a room for the nights in Rothenburg. One of the loveliest is to be found in the Herrngasse. It goes without saying that to live in a building from the Middle Ages has its attractions. Not luxurious, perhaps, but very comfortable, yet homely in the best sense. The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly, so that an enjoyable stay is assurd. One of the oldest nobleman`s house with individual and stylish interior. ... more   less
