Hotel "Am Siebersturm"
Ranked #37 of 45 Hotels in Rothenburg
Reviewed June 28, 2011

We had a car break-down and could not get to the hotel by the suggested check-in deadline. Neither could we contact the hotel desk right away as we were stranded for most of the day. When we finally contacted the owner that we would be running late by about two hours, he did not even bother to do anything to let us in after hours. He could think of something. But he did not want to do anything. He just said that he was going home, and that's that.
Our experience has been that there was always somebody in a hotel to cover for emergencies. It appears that in this "hotel" the owner is the only person and he leaves the premises at 10 pm sharp and is unwilling to make any concessions for unforeseen events beyond anybody's control. The guy was rude to the point of refusing even to give us at least a refund for breakfast that we were not going to use and making silly suggestion to get a compensation from Hertz for the hotel charges as if Hertz was somehow deliberately responsible for car problems.
I will never stay in that "hotel". If you have rich program (and who on a European vacation does not) and have a reasonable chance of being late for check-in for whatever reason, my honest recommendation is avoid that place.

If it weren't for the fact that the rooms are a bit old-fashioned and I bashed my head on the low ceiling of the stairs (I'm 5'10", 5'9" and below needn't even duck), I'd have given this hotel 5 out of 5. The shower was good, the rooms were clean, the location was excellent and the hotel coped seamlessly with my request for non-feather bedding. It was nice and quiet in the room too - although the extremely noise-sensitive should be warned that loud fellow guests or bad luck with the traffic or church bells might have a big impact.

Room Tip: If you come by car, reserve the parking place.

The hotel is a short 5-10 minute walk uphill from the old town center. It is about 20 minutes from the train station. The owner was reasonably pleasant, and provided for free wi-fi in town. The room was clean, comfortable, and worth the price. Rothenburg is a very small town, so it was very easy to get from one end of town to another.

The rude owner tried to convince us that we had booked a double room, not a room with a double bed. He became quite aggressive and confrontational when we tried to show him our confirmation that we had a double bed, and that the hotels.com website specifically said "Double Bed only" in the room description. He maintained that we had only booked a double room with a Tauber Valley View, despite the fact that such a room type doesn't even exist on the hotel's own website. We got stiffed with a twin bed room for the first night, and then the next day he tried to stiff us with a double bed room WITHOUT a view. It's possible that there was a mistake on hotels.com regarding the room description, but we think it's more likely that the owner was trying to stiff us given his rudeness and completely unprofessional attitude. At one point he tried to convince us to check out and find another hotel, which we weren't willing to do since we had already paid in advance for the room. It was only after I mentioned that we would be writing a negative review of his hotel that he changed his tune, and later told us that we were "absolutely right" regarding our concerns. Unfortunately for him it was too little, too late.

On a positive note, hotels.com did refund us the difference in price between the two rooms.

Stayed here for a couple of nights as part of a touring holiday. The location is good inside the walls of the town and we were able to park opposite. However the rooms and general decor all needs updating. The owner was friendly. Breakfast was the usual continental fare, all fresh but not a huge amount of choice. I am not sure that I would stay here again if I returned to the area.

We stayed one night last week which I booked only a couple of days ahead of time. The main reason for choosing this hotel was location inside the walls of Rothenburg and the free wireless internet. My family of 3 booked a single room on the first floor and a double room on the third floor. There isn't an elevator so don't bring heavy luggage if you're on the third floor because the steps are a little narrow and steep.

My teenage daughter loved the 3rd floor room with a gorgeous view over the Tauber Valley. The rooms are cozy and comfortable. I peeked into one of the triple rooms which also looked very nice. The breakfast buffet was good with the usual meat, cheeses, cereals,yogurts and breads.

The hotel was a good value and we would stay there again.

We have stayed in Hotel Am Siebersturm twice now, the latest trip Sept 09. In July 2008 we stayed in the hotel by chance, this year we went out of our way to visit Rothenburg ob der Tauber and stay in this hotel specifically because we fell in love with it. The location is perfect - in the middle of the city and just a short walk from every attraction in the town. The staff is amazing - they went out of their way to accomidate us and most spoke perfect English. The breakfast includes breads, butter, cheese, meats, veggies, orange juice, coffee, tea, etc. It is a very nice spread and is included in the room. We did not eat a meal at the restaurant, but we did have apple strudel, the best we've had all over Germany. Parking is not a problem if you don't mind walking about 80 meters. The hotel is close to a free parking lot just outside the wall and that was easier for us than driving through the small streets of the town. The rooms are beautiful and very clean. The first time we went we stayed on the street side and it was a little noisy in the evening, but nothing we couldn't sleep through. The second time we were on the top floor and didn't hear a thing. We can't wait for our next visit!
