“Depends on the room you get”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Check-in was smooth. Did not get a good room the first night (room10). We had corresponded months earlier but the room suggested by them was not available that day. We picked this hotel because the rooms had a/c. Unfortunately the first room was not laid out well, only had one window far from the bed, barely any natural light. The a/c was useless and there was no way to get a breeze on that side of the hotel. So pretty much a sleepless night. Manager a little grumpy when we asked to move the next day but he did accommodate our request.

Second night in room 9 was a total different experience. Cooler Room (2 a/c units) and a bunch of windows. So tons of natural light and natural breezes with the windows open.

Both rooms had a mini-bar and safe.

Had dinner at the hotel one night - very good.
Breakfast was ok. Nothing special - but they will cook eggs to order.

Walk from train station was a bit long dragging luggage behind us. We opted for cab back to the train station (7 eu). Grocery outside the wall very reasonable. Found pretty good sushi and Italian food close by. Recommend night watchman tour.

Overall, very charming town worth visiting.

Room Tip: Ask for room 9. A/C does not cool rooms well.

Stayed 2 nites July 30 & 31. We arrived by train from Wurzburg around noon and were delighted that our room was ready for immediate check-in, no formalities at check-in, courteous desk clerk just checked us off his list and gave us a key and showed us to the room, good elevator. Taxi to the hotel was under 7 euros each way, it seems like a bunch of really nice friendly ladies have cornered the cabbie market in Rothenburg ob der Tauber. We had a long-standing booking of the standard room which looked just like its pictures on the booking engine we had used. Good A/C. Really good water pressure and immediate hot water in large bathroom, washcloths, ample towels and bathmats, full-size shower enclosure with a good adjustable pole-mounted shower head that stayed where you put it, and never had a problem with water spraying out of the shower stall onto the floor. Very good modern TV with countless selection of satellite channels including Bloomberg, CNN, BBC, CNBC, Russian Television (in English), maybe a few others English speaking. Excellent comfortable bed, again the two-in-one setup, but the beds did not have any noticeable separation during the night. The hotel's location was ideal for exploring the compact historic old center, easy walk to everything of interest. It turned out that the restaurant is a separate operation from the hotel, as we I discovered the day following check-in when I wanted to put the drinks tab on my room. No can do dat. We arrived on a Monday, which is a closed day for many establishments including the restaurant at the BurgGartenpalais. We were able to get very good pork dinners at the "other" restaurant immediately next door that night, recommended by Rick Steves, too much food actually, very reasonably priced. We enjoyed great budget friendly Italian at another Rick Steves recommended place our second nite so we can't offer an opinion on the "hotel" restaurant - except that they have a delightful garden out back of the hotel, they have a fairly high-priced menu for our standards, and they put out the hotel's absolutely wonderful breakfast buffet which was included in the price of the room. The buffet breakfast had just about everything you could possibly hope for, so I won't go into further detail.

This is a very good hotel which we can easily recommend and at which we would happily stay again.

I had stayed at another hotel in Rothenburg where the walls were paper-thin and was worried that all hotels in the area would be like that! However as other reviewers have said, the hotel has been renovated but maintains its old-fashioned charm. We were there in a very hot period so we were so thankful for the air-conditioned rooms! The staff was friendly. Although the hotel advertises plenty of parking, they only have 2 spots in the front that you have to pay 5 euro to park in overnight. Then you have to move your car and try to find an open spot. It worked out fine but just beware. The location is great -- inside the wall but not a problem to get to and close to everything you want to see. The only problem we had was the hair dryer and face mirror in our bathroom need a little work.

Room Tip: We had a standard double on the backside and our in-laws had a superior double on the front side...

The contrast in this place to the many other places we stayed during our trip for only a few euros less was unbelievable. The building is one of the original eight century old wonders of this historic village. The greeting by the proffesionally dressed manager interrupted from his luncheon was most gracious as we tried not to drip too much from our soaked motorcyle gear. The spotless room had been renovated with fine modern materials. What a challenge it must be to install four seasons climate control in these ancient buildings. Dinner and the buffet breakfast were superb and we were lent an umbrella when needed and allowed a spot to stow our riding gear while shopping in the morning. The free Internet was a real benefit to us as well. I am extremely grateful for this lucky find that provided my wife with a little bit of luxury after being subjected to some less than comfortable conditions.

Stayed here one night on a tour of Bavaria. All the charm and beauty of Rothenburg is mirrored in this hotel.
We arrived at 11am and the reception arranged for our room to be cleaned ASAP and we had a complimentray coffee while we waited 20 minutes.
The room, and the hotel, has a quality interior throughout.
Breakfast was lovely.
Location excellent.
Car parking was fine with a hotel street parking pass for 5 euros although we got the feeling that during peak weeks even street parking could be difficult.

Located within the walled section of this historic town, Hotel BurgGarenpalais is a great location to enjoy the sites. Our room was decorated in reds and greens, with Tyrolean accents. The beds were comfortable, the room was clean, and the bathroom was quite large by European standards. The price of a room includes free wifi as well as a typical German breakfast. The hotel includes a parking lot but charges a small fee for its use.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
It is not difficult to find a room for the nights in Rothenburg. One of the loveliest is to be found in the Herrngasse. It goes without saying that to live in a building from the Middle Ages has its attractions. Not luxurious, perhaps, but very comfortable, yet homely in the best sense. The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly, so that an enjoyable stay is assurd. One of the oldest nobleman`s house with individual and stylish interior. ... more   less
