“A charming hotel in a wonderful location”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

This hotel is fabulous! It is beautifully unpretentious , a lovely old building which enfolds you in it's warmth as soon as you walk through the door. It is more like a boutique B and B than a hotel. It does not have a huge reception area or large public rooms but for us that was part of its charm.Our room was on the top floor and because the building is hundreds of years old it did not have a lift (thank goodness) offers are freely given however to carry luggage . The room was delightful spacious and contempory in style. The bathroom was very up to date, stylish and quite large. The view from our window was stunning!
The breakfast room is light,airy and attractive . Breakfast was delicious and comprehensive . Outside the breakfast room is a lovely garden where we sat and read our book after a sightseeing walk about.
The Burg hotel does not have a restaurant on site but a sister hotel about 10 steps across the street does and we had an excellent meal there. Also Rothenburg must have at least 100 restaurants to choose from.
The staff at the hotel could not be faulted all were friendly yet professional . We will definitely return to the fairy tale location of Rothenburg ob de tauter and would stay no where else than the Burg Hotel.

A feeling of "Aaah, I have arrived" came over me when I first walked into the Burghotel. From the rose garden and red geranium window boxes to breakfast on the terrace overlooking the valley below, our stay at the Burghotel was perfect. It was worth paying a little bit more to stay in a fine inn such as this.

My review is long overdue. We stayed at this hotel last summer for 2 nights and it was fabulous. The staff was friendly, the breakfast each morning was very plentiful (they'll even cook eggs to order). Our room opened onto the balcony along the wall. The views were just stunning. We enjoyed sipping wine and watching the sunset in the evenings from our spot on the castle wall - imagining others enjoying that same view hundreds of years ago. Highly recommend this hotel. It is also on the edge of the town, so very quiet and peaceful.

Room Tip: Ask for the family room that opens onto the balcony if traveling with kids.

This hotel is wonderful!

The staff are without exception polite, helpful and very friendly. They helped us out with our bags, with directions to various places - they are just lovely people.

The location is fab - just a few minutes from the main street, a little away from the hustle and bustle, which was perfect for us.

We love that is is built into the city walls, it has such great character. The views from the breakfast room and adjoining terrace are stunning. We sat out there with a book both mornings and late afternoon and it was really quiet and peaceful.

Breakfast is lovely, lots of choice and all beautifully prepared. We absolutely loved the fresh apple, carrot and ginger juice, such a nice idea, almost made me want to buy a juicer for home!

I have a feeling our room (21) is probably one of the most basic compared to others we saw and pictures on here, but we did book late and the hotel was nearly full. It was spotless, and comfortable. Although I would not knock any points off for it, the bathroom does need a refurb - it is huge, and again, spotless, but it has a 70s brown suite which just doesn't look very fresh. The shower is also awkwardly placed at the opposite end of the bath to the shower screen and sprays out into the room when it is turned above a certain pressure. Having said that this did not detract from our stay in any way - hopefully this room is next on their list for an upgrade!

We would absolutely return, and highly recommend a stay here!

Only stayed one night in this quaint hotel. It has a charm about it that can not be manufactured, but the room decor was a little kitsch. The staff where lovely, the breakfast room had delightful views. It was a little difficult to get to, our GPS put us at a street my husband wouldn't drive down, but we found another way in. Also the town is filled with day visitors who take no notice of traffic. The room rate included a continental breakfast.
I wouldn't recommend staying when it is very hot as there is no air conditioning. I am also not a fan of the German habit of providing only a thin pillow and quilt, with no top sheet, over two single beds pushed together.

Unfortunately, I've spend just one night here with my wife and my 6 years old daughter. My family and I fell in love with this hotel! You will have one of the most terrific views in the breakfast if you stay close to great wall where the hotel has been constructed, which is simply one of the main attractions in Rotheburg ob der Tauer! The staff is amazing, very kind, very patient. The room is pretty comfortable and clean, and with a large bathroom. The city itself is so small, that any place is close from everything, but this is the best hotel in Rothenburg ob der Tauer. I have no doubt about it. Jut to remind that the hotel is one of the "silence chain of hotels". When you be there, you'll know why. Highly recommended! We'll be back for sure!

We - two adults and two children - stayed in the Burg Hotel's family apartment which was just fantastic. A master bedroom, a living room and a luxurious bathroom on one floor, and two separate bedrooms (and a bathroom) on the second floor. Also, a very unique balcony situated ON the castle wall of Rothenburg - the sunset view of the valley was breathtaking.

We could not have been happier with the room, location and breakfast. A short walk to everything and we felt very welcome. Highly recommended. Easily the best place we stayed in our two weeks trip around Germany.

Room Tip: The family apartment is fantastic - roomy and with a fantastic balcony. It does not have a room numb...
