“Nice family hostel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

It is a small well runed hostel, it's in the center, close to everything. The rooms have a nice size, you have bathroom and shower in the room which is great. Staff is really helpful and nice. The only downside is that they don't have internet, and being such a small town that dies really early, it got a bit bored being at the hostel with no internet. Other than that it was perfect.

Pension Becker is easy to find just around the corner from the Galgentor. We paid for parking at the public lot just outside the gate because we didn't know, but it turns out they can help you find some free parking. The staff was very helpful and friendly, even loaning us an umbrella when my husband forgot one. The bed was very comfortable, especially for the price (at this price I usually expect it to be a bit hard). Our room had three lace-curtained windows with a view over the street - very cute! (Note though: cars on cobblestones are really loud!) The shower was directly in the bedroom, which is actually great for me since my greatest hotel bathroom peeve is when the shower is too close to the toilet. ;) However, that may be a problem for people who are intent on complete shower privacy. Things were definitely a bit run-down & the hallway smelled of cologne which is why I give 4 instead of 5 stars, but the price and location can't be beat and this place is a great deal. I would stay there again.

We walked up to this place after learning about it at the TI (the board that tells you B&B vacancies) and we are glad we waited 5 minutes outside for the owner to get there after ringing them. It's well situated just inside the wall. The price is competitive. We were offered a family room for the price of the double and it was spacious and cozy. We can overlook the narrow stairs (no elevator) and squeaky hallway for the cute home experience. We were fine having parked outside the wall, but they would have tried to arrange something inside for us. Breakfast was hearty, though the dining hall can be small based on how many people are staying. Self-serve mini bar offered cheap drinks. The only downside is the check-out time being a little early for a relaxing morning in a B&B, but it could just be the Rothenburg standard.

Our room was more like a bed in a bathroom than a bedroom with facilities! But perfectly adequate for a short stay.

It's very close to the centre, and we had no trouble parking free about 50 yards away, next to the wall.

The breakfast is a bit chaotic when the house is fairly full, but no real problem, except the lack of eggs.

Hosts are very friendly and helpful.

The prices are excellent for this town, but be prepared for a little compromise.

If you want to stay right in the middle of the old walled city for a bargain, this place is tough to beat. The room was tiny, the bathroom was the tiniest I've seen, but they were clean. This is no frills, but you're in Rothenburg, and there's enough to see that you're not going to be spending a lot of time in your room.

The owners were very kind and served a decent breakfast. I would stay here again.

The pension itself was about average but I really couldn't tell if my room was just really run down or if it was dirty. That being said the bed was really comfortable, the location was good and the hosts were reasonably friendly.

My husband and I spent two nights as guests at Pension Becker. Rothenburg's tiny streets are understandably tricky to navigate even in a small rental car, but people are patient and helpful. Once the car was parked, we walked everywhere. This little hotel is perfectly located and delightful. It was our first visit to this part of Germany, and we hope to return to visit this ancient city and lovely hotel again.
