“Great little gasthaus”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

The owner was great and even helped carry our luggage upstairs. Free parking close by. No wi-fi avaiable and they only took cash. We had a family apartment, which was a great size for us. The beds weren't very comfortable. The rooms were very clean. It was just a little run down. The breakfast was great. It's in a great location within the city walls. It's a little overpriced. We had a really great experience there.

We stayed here for the Christmas markets of 2012. The rooms were comfy with plenty of hot water for showers and space for all our packages. In my eyes the best part of the whole stay was once the staff found out I have Celiac Sprue they catered to my needs. Each dinner was prepared separately from the others along with making sure each item contained no gluten. Each breakfast they had a few pieces of bread for me which is totally awesome as anyone knows a European breakfast is breads, meats, cheeses, fruit and yogurt. I would totally stay here again and not have a worry about what I eat in their restaurant.

The Hotel is just in the centre. The room are small but there is everything. The owner is really very nice and friendly. The price is very good. Breakfast and dinner are good. There is also a big parking just for the guests of the Hotel.

we stayed in a small downstairs bedroom, that was our choice and it was more than adequate.
we had a wonderful breakfast and as always in germany a fantastic reception.
Rothenburg is a wonderful place to visit and mostly pedestrian although we were able to
drive right to the hotel with our bags and free parking was a very short walk away.
everything is within easy walking distance from the hotel and we had a great time

I think the report below by Margies2001says it all and then some. Great location (5 minute walk to the very heart of town), perfect for family - very large apartment on top floor. Nice to have separate bedrooms from the teenagers! The breakfast is excellent and included in the room charge- great bread rolls, meats, cheeses, yoghurt, boiled eggs etc. It included free parking, which is not right by the guesthouse but the owner has a map with directions and it's only 2 minutes away. Excellent price for such a big, clean apartment. Nice, firm beds.

This b&b is centrally located within the city walls of Rothenburg. Provides clean accommodation and good german breakfast. Good place to stay if you do not mind that it is a bit old. Bathroom had carpeted flooring...

This hotel is a GREAT value for your money, especially if you're traveling with children. You get 2 bedrooms (one with 2 twin beds and one with a full or queen bed), a sitting room and bathroom inside the walls of Rothenburg! This is one of the CLEANEST hotels I have ever stayed in - and I'm quite picky in this area! I was unable to find a single cleanliness flaw to photograph for posting on hotel review websites. The fee includes a typical German breakfast (yogurt, meat, cheese, rolls, butter, jam, nutella, & honey, coffee, orange juice, & water). The owners are very friendly and helpful. They put English language brochures about Rothenburg in our room, so I didn't even need to visit tourist information. Also, one afternoon, my son locked himself in the bathroom and couldn't get out (it has an old-fashioned type key that is hard for kids to work). The owner went out back and had my son throw the key down to him. Then he came up and unlocked the door from the hallway (if you have kids, I recommend putting this key on the highest shelf at the beginning of your stay!) I sent them an email a few weeks prior to our arrival asking several questions and they replied quickly. Parking is available. The shower is great - it closes all around (unlike typical German showers.) This hotel is also very quiet at night, even with the bedroom windows open. It is located on a small quiet street, but it is above a beer garden/restaurant, so I was a bit worried that it might be loud well into the night. Our stay included a Friday night, and the beer garden closed by 10 PM. It was quiet well before 9 PM. This hotel has a separate lot for parking, if you have a car. This is a HUGE plus, as Rothenburg streets are narrow, and parking is scarce. There are books and board games on the shelves in the sitting room, along with a TV and radio. The photos of Silbernen Kanne on this website are accurate.

There is, however, no air conditioning. This is not unusual for German hotels, and few (if any) of the hotels in Rothenburg are probably air conditioned. Nevertheless, it was 95*F+ one day, plus humidity, and that night was almost unbearable. Ceiling fans, or floor/table fans, would help. On the other days of our stay, it cooled down at night if you left the windows open. It would also be nice if there was a small refrigerator in the apartment to keep drinks cold overnight. There is also no phone in the apartment.

Overall, I recommend this hotel. The "apartment" is furnished a bit like a college apartment, with mismatched furniture. But, for the size & location at this price (and level of cleanliness) it is worth it!
