Hotel Raidel
Ranked #33 of 45 Hotels in Rothenburg
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Ideal location: 5 min walk to free parking, 1 min walk to ideal picture taking spot (classic Rothenburg), breakfast included (buns, jams, cheese, meats, juice, coffee)
Pleasant and helpful staff
We paid 90 euros for a family of four, included bathroom with shower
Can't imagine how old the place is, but it fits right in with the Rothenburg theme...
Would definitely stay here again...

Room Tip: We were at the front of the hotel and it was noisy in the early morning (garbage and delivery trucks...

We were only here for a night but absolutely adored Rothenburg. It was probably our favourite place in Bavaria. Like something out of a film set. It was the Bavaria we'd dreamed of. This hotel was no exception. Superbly located and a lovely, gentle manager who spoke good English and made us feel very welcome.

We parked outside the town walls, about 5-10 minutes walk away, in a public car park. There was supposedly Wifi, but I never found it. There was a communal balcony not far from our room where regrettably we never got to use. The beds were comfy and the bathroom great. Had a great night's sleep and it was a quiet place once the tourists had gone home. The room was a little hot with no fans or air conditioning, but I guess Germany is like England in that it's geared more to heat you than cool you.

Breakfast was a basic 'continental' affair but very good with a choice of cheeses, yoghurts, bread rolls and decent coffee. The surroundings are lovely. The ceiling in particular is a source or wonder. In fact, the walk up and down the stairs is an experience in itself. The house is brimming with old Bavarian charm.

Take a trip up the town walls if you can so you can see this charming chocolate box town in all its stunning glory.

We'd love to come back at Christmas!

Amazing is the word that best describes this hotel. First the price is bargain 69 Euros for a double room. Second the location in the heart of the old town is simply amazing, everything is within easy walking distance. Third the owner and staff are friendly and helpful. Fourth the breakfast included is very nice, Lastly the old world charm this hotel oozed from everywhere simply cannot be matched. The creaking stairs, old furniture and bookcases and other little charms fail to have adequate words describe them We fell in love with this hotel after only one night, if you are planning to stay in Rothenburg definitely give this hotel a try. You will feel you have walked into a story book.

We loved this place. After our last hotel cancelled our reservation we called hotel Raidel and the owner was willing to wait for us and give us a room. Very evenly priced and a very friendly owner. This place was worth it for the homey feel and the welcome we received from the owner. The breakfast was great and the whole place was like a step back in time. The room was great with a nice bed. The shower was a little dated, but still worth it. Close to the center of Rothenburg and about a ten minute walk from the train station. The owner also let us leave our luggage after we checked out so we could tour the town a little.

I just happened on this hotel, unfortunately they only had room for me for one night. The room was small but simple, however it was perfectly located, Internet was great and the service was fantastic! Breakfast was lovely with juice,meats, breads, cheeses, fruits, egg and coffee. I would recommend it to any single female traveler as well because it was also very safe.

Such a cute hotel! More like a B&B. Old, charming, quaint house. Breakfast is included. I paid 69 Euros for 1 night in May, standard room with double bed and private bath. Mr. Raidel is a kind older man, helpful and accomdating. This hotel is within the town's old wall, extremely close to the center of town/town hall (maybe a 3-4 min walk) called Marktplatz. Basically every great Rothenburg ODT attraction is a 1-10 minute walk. Definitely recommend this hotel!

We were in Rothenburg for a night and stayed at this hotel, which met our needs for a night. The hotel is antique and has lots of character, but had an indeterminable creepy and dark feel to it. I think this was mostly due to us being the only guests at the time in this huge house converted to hotel. The owner is accomodating, but not so personable for someone in the hospitality business. We had a triple room that was spacious with an en-suite bathroom. It was decently clean, although a good scrubbing would have helped. The room faced the street and there was a lot of early morning traffic that woke us up. We are typically not light sleepers, but it was enough to bring us to an early rise, which was okay because we wanted to get out and tour anyway.
The breakfast is basic-- store bought jams and meats and cheese, with an addition of what seemed to be a homebaked pastry.

We had a nice enough stay, although on return to Rothenburg we would probably stay somewhere else.

The best thing about this hotel is its location-- right up the little road from what I would term "central" Rothenburg, cute shops, restaurants, etc.

Room Tip: Ask for one away from the road.
