Roter Hahn Rothenburg
Ranked #39 of 45 Hotels in Rothenburg
Reviewed July 11, 2011

Hotel Roter Hahn provided a clean, spacious room, a helpful front desk staff and an overall high quality experience.

The wood panel furniture, although a bit dated, is in good condition. The small card/work table was useful; we never turned on the tiny, late 80s CRT TV. Great water and water pressure but had to rig the hose so the water would achieve a productive direction. Great location, 100 yards from Market Square.

The woman checking us out was either incompetent or a thief. She charged us for breakfast on our second morning but as she is both the hostess and waitress, she should clearly have known we did not have breakfast. We only dined at the hotel's restaurant on our first morning -- which was a pretty boring array of meats and cheeses and breads -- definitely not worth the price, even with the meager scrambled eggs.

If I were returning to Rothenberg, I would be tempted to stay at a B&B or at the one luxury hotel in the city.

Lastly, if you park in the "free" parking, be sure you park in the free part of it -- a few rows are not free. We arrived at our car to the tune of a 10 Euro ticket. Drive to the end of Parking #4 or Frau Schopf will get you!

Four of us called this wonderful old inn home for 5 days at the start of June. The location one block off the main square and across from St. John's Church was a beautiful spot. Our room overlooked a narrow side street with a small café and large trees where birds sang each morning. From the first greeting to our last goodbyes the staff treated us as special guests. We ate many of our meals in their quaint dining room, surrounded by antique collectibles or at their sidewalk café next to the bustle and energy of the street. The foods and beers were excellent, served with enthusiasm, smiles and any help needed. This was certainly one of our most enjoyable and memorable travel experiences ever.

I spent one night in this hotel. I may have been the only one there, and getting help at the front desk was a little slow at times (maybe understaffed at this time of the year?) but I'm pretty laid back and was so excited to be in Rothenburg. The owners were friendly though. The location can't be beat - right across the street from the Medieval Crime and Punishment Museum, next to an internet cafe, and just a few minutes from the town center. The bathroom is small. I am tall, and the bathroom was almost too small for me - had to duck in the shower, etc. The breakfast was typical but fresh. The room was cold and knob to the radiator didn't work, but did I mention the location? The value was great, featherbed was warm, room was comfortable and a good size for a single occupant - included a sitting area with a table. Not fancy by any means, but that's not what I look for when I travel. I would stay again - price was very reasonable.

This hotel is located right near the downtown and is easily reached by walking from the train station. We stayed there 1 night and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are simple but clean and are a great value. The food is also very good and reasonably priced. This is a great choice for a budget traveller and we are planning on staying here again next time we are in town. Rothenburg is a great place to visit and this hotel made our stay comfortable.

After flying all night and driving half the day, the Roter Hahn was a wonderful place to land. If English-speaking staff is of concern to you: Owner speaks perfect English and staff also is very comfortable in English. Room was comfortable and spotless. Location right in the heart of walled village is perfect. Lots going on, but room was quiet. The only issue was parking. It is difficult near the hotel, no matter what. Because of a festival going on, the village was closed to traffic and we had to park in a public lot some distance away. However, staff was very helpful in letting us know when we would be able to drive in before and after streets were closed to traffic so we could load and unload luggage. The hotel has an elevator, helpful for getting luggage to second floor as well as for those with limited mobility. Restaurant on site was also very good.

Drove from Mannheim to Rothenburg after flying in that morning. The Hotel was lovely, old and full of charm and Antiques. The Staff could not have been nicer and the Owner was quite helpful. I only had one and 1/2 days but will return and will stay at the Hotel Roter Hahn again!

We spent two nights at the Roter Hahn in Rothenburg o. d. Tauber. The location couldn't be better; it's right off the main square. Our room was a basic double. It was clean, tidy, and best of all, very quiet (the only thing we heard was the city bells ringing every hour). The corridors and public areas are a bit kitschy, full of old knickknacks and such, but the rooms are fairy up to date. The staff was friendly and helpful; breakfast downstairs was your basic German fare (bread, cheese, sliced meats, yogurt, fruit, meusli, coffee, juice) but of qood quality. We would return; it was a simple hotel but met our needs.
