“Christmas Markets”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here just before Christmas, we had a room at the front of the Hotel, could not fault it, spacious and very comfortable.
Large bathroom with load of hot water.
Staff were friendly and helpful, only downside was the lack of a bar, although they did supply drinks from behind the front desk.
Good location within the City Walls and a large car park not too far away.
There are plenty of good eating establishments close at hand, but did enjoy the selection, though expensive, available in the Christmas Markets.
Don't forget to walk with the Night Watchman.

Stayed December 2012, traveled as a couple

In an effort to explore local attractions, we stayed at the Goldener Hirsch. Our experience was delightful! The hotel and room was absolutely charming. The staff made us so very welcome! Ryan, was especially helpful and gave us great advice on local deals. Also, a very comfortable night sleep in a very comfortable bed!

This place was so perfect! They have free parking behind the building which is hard to find in town. Its pedestrian only. Right next to the main town square. Our room with king bed was spacious and the bath with shower was large as well. Breakfast was great! Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here 2 nights. The location is fantastic! When we checked in we were told the room would not be ready for 30 min. to an hour, which was not a problem since we were meeting some friends for kaffee & kuchen. When we did return to get checked in they couldn't locate the key to our room, we were sent to our room with the master key - once we got to the room we discovered someone else was already occupying the room. My husband went back to the front desk to explain the situation, the woman at the front desk didn't seem to believe my husband so she came back to the room to check. She then went to several other rooms (with us tagging behind) until she found a room that was unoccupied. The room she gave us had a phenomenal view, but was incredibly tiny and looked very shabby (and not in the shabby chic sort of way). My husband went back down to discuss the room and afterwards we were given a larger room just upstairs from our original room. I got the feeling that they may have been doing a bit of remodeling/refurbishing - I hope that is the case. The staff seemed a bit aloof and disorganized. It is a great location with some amazing views from the backside of the hotel, but I don't think we would stay here again.

Our room at the Goldener Hirsch was rather small with a small bathroom but the view over the valley was great. Other rooms that we saw were much larger. We booked online at the last minute and it was, essentially, the last room in the town. The hotel is somewhat worn at the edges [so am I] although it was elegant in the past. Also. there were tour groups every night of our stay. There is no wifi but there is parking at 6 euros. That said, the location was perfect--the center of the old town, the staff very helpful, the breakfast quite good and we like antique hotels. All in all, it was an enjoyable stay..

Rothenburg ob der Tauber is so pretty that you will not be spending much time in your room so for that this hotel is fine. My husband and I had one night here on our tour around the South of Germany. Our room was pretty small and basic but the breakfast in the small dining room was nice with great views. The rooms are okay if you don't plan on spending alot of time in it but the hotel is in a great location and is very central in Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

We stayed here over night on our way home from holiday. We phoned ahead to ask if they could accommodate us with our 15 year old daughter, which was no problem. We were given two adjoining double rooms which were enormous with the most fabulous view out over the valley and over the old city wall. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the airco was a very pleasant extra seeing as it was 31 degree's outside. The decoration was very old but in keeping with the hotel and very well maintained. The breakfast was very good and was served in the stunningly beautiful breakfast room, once again with the wonderful view. The staff were also very helpful and friendly. All in all it made an unexpected wonderful last night of our holidays. I would highly recommend this hotel for a stay and do intend to return.
