The staff at this hotel are wonderful but the room needs better facilities. There was no air conditioning which was unfortunate as it was a very hot night and with the window open there was just a little too much noise. It also needs better WIFI considering most of us find this hotels only through being able to access the internet I consider it to be a basic requirement for hotels to have a good, fast free and free connection to the Net. Other than that it was excellent.

Although the worthy staff tried to make up for the situation the Roten Baeren, is an old hotel (the oldest in the world according to them) that hasn't been kept up to date with the times. The fold out bed for my child was a death trap that actually had a nail pointed outwards. The towel rack was radioactively hot and there was a alarmed door at the end of the room for no apparent reason. Having said all this breakfast was excellent and again the staff do their best.

The Hotel lays claim to being the oldest guesthouse in Germany, and while it is full of history (for a small fee, you can vist their huge cellars - quite something...), its infrastructure is absolutely up-to-date. Rooms are spotlessly clean with good-quality furnishings, linen and towels, and very decent beds. The hotel restaurant is was no bother, in terms of noise, and neither is the tram in front (how do they manage to have a tram run near-silently?!). The upside is that the breakfast they serve to hotel guests is fresh, generous, and tasty. Staff have been very friendly indeed, and so this is a place I would certainly recommend. Note: parking at the hotel is very limited (5 places in their underground garage, I think); they provide discounted access to a public garage nearby (Euro 10 per day).

Room Tip: 1: wireless internet is free, but doesn’t reach all rooms (we were on the third floor and had no signal, so had to use the [very fine] lounge area to hook up). 2: we did not find A/C in the room, and being under the eaves, it was a little warmer than we would have preferred. If you go in mid-summer, this may be an issue.

Nestled in the old part of the city you can approach this hotel by car for the convenience of dropping bags but beware the trams and bikes which feel like they are coming from all directions.

The friendly greeting is a good start and reception staff have handy a notice for your car explaining that you are a guest and just dropping bags.

No porter available but a lift is available for the rooms. The room we had at the front of this very old building was a good size and had a lovely modern shower with good water pressure. The staff were very helpful and spoke excellent English.

Nice robes and slippers make you feel vey comfortable as you settle into the chaise to rest from a hard days sightseeing. Location could not be better from which to explore this delightful city the shops and cathedral.

Good desk away from the sleeping area to recharge equipment and write reviews.

The restaurant food was very good for traditional fare with smiling helpful staff and breakfast on the first floor was plentiful and fresh.

The view from our room at the front of the hotel was a delight but with the windows open it was a bit noisy for sleeping and a lot of light coming in through the rather meager curtains. The bed however is comfortable. No air con so if it was really warm that could be a problem our room did have a fan.

Red bears are everywhere woven into the carpets, on the towels, even on the slippers so you will not forget where you are.

Definitely worth the experience.

Room Tip: Consider the noise factor if selecting a front room.

I have to say that the location is simply excellent. The hotel from outside looks very good. It is a petty that the room I was in was dirty, the carpet stained, the bathroom dirty and the walls also dirty. Not to speak about the fact that you can only have internet connection up to the 1st floor and that the people at reception are not exactly customer friendly,...

All in all for only €150 for one night !
Not to go back again
