“A lovely place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

The Pension was very close to the town centre and in the corner there's a very cute handcraft shop. The room had stylish furnitures and was very clean. The breakfast room was charming and the breakfast itself was traditional.

This reasonably priced guest house is approx 500 years old. While the rooms are simple, they are also beautiful. They have the houses original wooden beams in the ceiling, quirky angles, beautiful old furniture, great breakfast and lovely host. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting something more intimte and personal when compared to big hotels.

There is no question that Gästehaus Raidel is relatively basic accomodation, but it was a delightfully charming experience to stay there. The hotel has not been modernised and feels like it has been the same for the last hundred years.

Mr Raidel was a good host, meeting us and answering any questions, and then serving a very nice reakfast the next morning. The room itself was very old world German cute - we slept well in the double bedroom on the second floor at the back.

The location itself, I think, is one of the best in town. Make sure you wander the streets, walk the walls, get out into the valley below the town. This is a really special part of the world and Hotel Raidel was a great base to explore it from.

We weren't sure in relation to the hotel was the center of town, but we were happy to find that it wasn't even a ten minute walk from the hotel to the center of the town. A charming place, we were greeted by the owner, Mr. Raidel. He was very welcoming, along with much older cat - a happy surprise. No worries, (for those with allergies) this cat stays in his office and can hardly get around anymore. He showed us to our room and gave us keys to get in our room and the building, showed us where breakfast was served (he doesn't serve lunch or dinner). Our room was spacious, clean and inviting. There was no TV, frig or microwave, but we never missed it. We put some of our bottle drinks on the window ledge and ate our other meals elsewhere. The bathroom was nice, it had the necessities, toilet, shower, sink, towels, etc. We opened the window in the bathroom and could actually reach over to the wall over the building next door - too cool! Early in the morning we could hear the pigeons cooing while tucked under the eaves of the roof, staying dry from the rain. Don't know if was all the site seeing, but it was some of the best sleep I had ever gotten. For the two of us, we paid €69 per night - cash only, no credit cards. I the owner tell another guest that he would even accept American dollars! The breakfast was the traditional German continental breakfast - bread, lunch meats, boiled eggs, cakes, fruit, juices and coffee. All of our favorites! I was sad to leave, but we brought home some really great memories.

Room Tip: If you don't ask, you might get a room that you share a bathroom with other guest on the floor...

This was a very pleasant place to stay. The owner was one cool guy and the breakfast was easily one of the best we had in Germany. Bedroom was spacious, beds are comfortable, bathroom was not a star but perfectly adequate. The building itself really is a medieval treasure. If you want a five star stay go elsewhere, but this was fantastic value for money and we'll be back!

We loved our two nights here in this historic town. Staying at this guesthouse was like going back in time. The building is original and quaint, full of antiques and old artwork, yet the rooms were modern and comfortable. Breakfast was good, served in a charming dining area with little alcoves, benches and old tables. Our host was friendly, helpful and soft spoken and appeared to run the place single-handedly. You may hear him practicing Dixieland jazz in the evenings. The stay was like being in a fairy tale, both due to the town and the inn.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a private bath
