This historic inn is a fabulous choice for a stay in Dinkelsbuhl. Located right on the town square, it looks and feels like Old Germany from the half-timbered facade to the sweeping stairway with suits of armor and statues of the Madonna strewn about inside. Our room was much bigger than we expected and thankfully located on the quieter rear side of the building. Although the decor was a little tired, it was clean, comfortable and quiet. The valet parking was bargain at only 8 Euros.
The front desk was run a little loosely, if not a little bit gruffly, but the restaurant maitre d' was a bright and exuberant young lady with an impeccable style and a great grasp on the English language. She made us feel like we were being invited into a private club as VIP guests. I should say that this restaurant is beautiful and is supposed to be the best one in town. The breakfast included a large plate of mixed meats which was impossible for two people to finish, along with the eggs, cereal, yogurt, fruit and rolls that you expect with a good German breakfast. The coffee was excellent, too.
The only negative thing to report is the bathroom. It was large and modern with a very big corner bathtub, but the lighting was harsh and there was no window for natural light or ventilation. The ceiling fan could be heard from the bed even with the door closed. There was no curtain or divider for the shower, so it was impossible not to get the floor completely wet when showering. Fortunately, they had provided plenty of extra bath mats and towels.
Over-all, I recommend this hotel as it is a cut above many of the tourist hotels on the Romantic Road. It is charming and full of interesting quirks. We slept well and had a great breakfast there. The car was already waiting for us out front as we came downstairs to check out.
