“Great hotel, thoroughly enjoyed our stay!”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

This hotel is charming, and the location can't be beat. The proximity to the train station and the city walls is excellent. Breakfast was very good, and served beautifully in a comfortable and homey dining room.
When I had a problem with a credit card that necessitated several phone calls, the staff was extremely helpful to me in negotiating the international calls. The price of this hotel is very reasonable for the location and quality.

We fell in love with this hotel (from the outside) when we parked at the opposite car park a couple of years a go.
Finally, we got the chance to stay 2 nights at the Hotel Hornburg when we travelled with our friends. We were not disappointed. Our rooms were comfortable and clean with great views.
We appreciated the friendly service and the excellent breakfast.

Room Tip: Room #7 on the ground floor was great.

My wife and I stayed overnight while visiting Rothenburg with friends to attend the annual Volksmarch in town. Very nice hotel with great service & a ‘being at home’ feeling; located just outside one of the historic gates into the town and only a 10-minute walk to the town square. Conveniently located next to a public parking lot, so leave your car there and enjoy walking around the historic old town. Use the website to pre-select your room; we stayed in room #14 and it had plenty of space. The next day, we were treated to a great breakfast buffet with a variety of selections before departing for home. We will definitely come back to this place on any return visits to Rothenburg!

The Hotel Garni Hornburg is a wonderful hotel with a fairy-tale atmosphere and great views of the impressive and pretty walls of the old town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

The owners were extremely helpful and friendly, and lent us their personal maps when we went out cycling.
(a tip: make sure that you rent or bring bikes with lots of low gears, as it can be quite hilly around and outside the town)

We had Room 15, which has its own enclosed verandah with seats and a table, and fabulous views of the old town walls.
It has a lovely "olde worlde" style, and a newly-fitted bathroom is of extremely high quality -- overall both the rooms and the hotel are very classy, memorable, and very much in keeping with the atmosphere of the old town..

The hotel is conveniently placed just outside the old walls, and is less than 10 minutes walk (less than 600 metres) from the train station, so is very easy to access without a car.

We loved the breakfast which had a great choice of food, and great layout and even the smiles on the boiled eggs added to the feel-good atmosphere of the hotel.

There are several great restaurants within 5 minutes' walk of the hotel, and we felt that it was perfectly located.

We stayed 6 nights, and will definitely stay there again when we revisit Rothenburg.

Overall, it was a lovely experience, and one of the very best we had in Germany.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a good view of the old town.

We loved this charming hotel. We had rooms 19/20 which was perfect for our family of 4 (two teenaged girls). There were a number of stairs to climb...but the staircase was so beautiful it seemed worth it each time. The first floor lounge area was a nice place to visit with other members of our traveling party. On the ground floor there is a small lounge in the reception area with some board games available. The breakfast was filling and had a nice variety. Even in the early spring the gardens of the hotel were very lovely. It is located just outside the walls of the town. The owners were able to give us some nice recommendations of restaurants to visit that were open on the night we visited. When you arrive, make sure to check with the owners about which portion of the parking lot to park in to avoid additional fees or tickets. We definitely regretted not booking here for more than one night and if we are ever in the area again will return.

Wonderful almost "fairy tale" hotel on the edge of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. A must see city in Germany. Experience the real historic Germany both in the city and in the hotel. The rooms are cute and charming, breakfast turned out to be wonderful. Excellent value hotel.

This is a unique little hotel. The decor is quirky, individual, warm and welcoming. The location is brilliant particularly if you have a car. The hotel is just outside the historic town walls with pay parking right in front or free parking (on weekdays) just a short walk away.
We had room 17 which was very comfortable indeed. It has a seperate WC and bathroom. The bathroom is tiny but it is very well presented and has a good shower. The room itself is spacious with a nice chaise lounge in one corner. A lovely 'home' to return to after a day spent in pretty Rothenburg.
Gabriele goes out of her way to ensure a good stay. We were provided with extra pillows including a neck support pillow for me. She quickly provided us with a map and recommendatins for things to see and places to eat.
There is a very good choice at breakfast and Gabriele will cook a boiled egg to your specification. We were there just before Xmas so my egg came wearing a Santa hat!
Make sure you have a game with Buddy (the dog), he is so lovable.
This is a lovely place to stay and highly recommended.
