But just viewing the outside of this building was interesting. It is the oldest guest house in Germany. It dates from 1590 and a document shows that its owner was granted the right to fell a hundred oaks to build it. Cool!

We loved this place. Said to be the oldest hotel in Germany, and it certainly is old. The room was huge and comfortable, the price excellent, and it is located right in the old part of town. It is also one of the most scenic buildings in the town. As with many hotels in Germany, the front door is often...

We stopped in Miltenberg while on a Viking river cruise. Apparently, this is a very old establishment. Our guide told us Elvis Presley liked to stay here when he was stationed nearby in the US Army. The building itself is fairly impressive for its age and it typical of the exposed timber style.

I read about the brewery and the Gasthaus in a brewing magazine, so I decided to pay a visit to them. As for the Gasthaus price is way to high. It seems that the owners in the last period didn't improve anything, they just profit from the fame of the place. We booked a Kaisersuite for 125 €. Room was...

Loved staying in this historic hotel with remodeled, themed rooms. Landlady very nice and friendly. Unfortunately, she only speaks German, but I had sufficient tourist knowledge of German to converse with her. Glad we stayed here on our way back to Frankfurt. Restaurant next door also has great food.

Very clean and comfortable. The staff speaks no English but they are very helpful and worked to make sure that we understood what they were saying. The room we had was a suite with a terrace on the back side that made for very spacious and comfortable quarters. Breakfast, included in the price of the room, included meats, cheeses, juice...

Located right in he middle town, on the main shopping street, this place is ideal when visiting the town. It has a super restaurant and service and food is very good. Historically, it's suppose to be the oldest inn in Europe, dating back to the 12th century. But you'd never know it from inside. Very up to date (except for...

The room was clean and comfortable. I was very disappointed that there was no WiFi anywhere in this hotel. Fortunately there was free WiFi at the bookstore down the street from the hotel we were able to use. A couple of inconveniences was there was no hairdryer and not a soul in the hotel spoke any English. I would probably...

Miltenberg is really picture postcard. This hotel where we had the Carnival Bier was great. Didn't have time to sample the food, but it looked tasty. Elvis slept here when doing national service and they are still very proud that he came here.
