“Price was right for a quick overnight stay”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Very bare bones old country inn. Wifi was a joke. Considering how hokey it was we had a decent nights sleep. There was a bit of a mold smell in our room. For the price it was acceptable, considering the pricey alternatives in Rothenburg. We went in with the expectation of just a place to sleep and shower until continuing on our way early in the morning, this fit the bill.

My fiance and I stayed at Hotel Schwarzes Ross for two nights this past week. It is close to Rothenburg (only 5 km) and had a charming personality. The innkeeper is an elderly gentleman and his wife does the cooking. They both speak some English which was great for us because we know only basic German survival phrases. Our room had a balcony and we enjoyed sitting out in the sun watching the animals run around, there is even a black horse in the backyard. Breakfast here was wonderful. They had a great spread of cheeses, meats, jams, breads, yogurt and muesli. We were given a full carafe of coffee, the real stuff nothing from a tear package. The beds were clean and comfortable. The room itself was a little bright because we were on the top floor with lots of windows but it just meant we were up and ready to explore the area. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling near Rothenburg.

We enjoyed our stay here. We had the last room so we had a living room, two large bedrooms,kitchen and bath for a very reasonable rate. We had to promise not to use the kitchen, but it would be perfect for traveling family. There was even a baby cot. The first night we got there we were too tired to travel even the short distance to RodT so we ate a perfectly adequte simple meal at the gasstube that is part of the hotel.

The place has real charm. The breakfast room is original to the old guest house that was part of the farm. We have eaten places that were bragging about there antiques, but here the antiques are part of the family history. The place could do with a sprucing up in some areas, but the bathroom was clean and the beds were comfortable. Wifi worked well in the hotel itself, but we were in an annex and it was spotty there.

The proprietor was very helpful and friendly and provided us with local useful information.

This is a wonderful place to stay if you plan on visiting Rothenburg. It is only 5 km away, and the rooms are clean, spacious, and charming. The innkeeper was so friendly and made us feel welcome for the holiday weekend. I would reccomend this hotel to couples looking for a romantic get away, or families.
