Reviewed September 23, 2012

Considering this was actually our second visit to the Weinstube, I was disappointed that the staff (apart from the lady who checked us out at breakfast) were so incredibly rude and dismissive. Preferred to serve the table outside drinks rather than help us at all with any grace or manners or interest. I felt a bit sick paying up.
Breakfast is a bit disappointing - little choice, no fresh fruit - and the rooms, while fine, do not have showers, only baths with shower attachments.
The location is ideal.

The photos only give you a peek into the charm of this place. We were unable to book the main inn but stayed in the guest house just steps away. Our apartment in the guest house was just fantastic and wonderfully furnished. Another plus for Altfrankische is their restaurant where breakfast is served by candlelight and dinners are outstanding.

This is a quirky and charming hotel with loads of character. Upon arrival there was only a phone number to call for registration, but no phone. Fortunately the owner arrived and took us to our lovely room (#1). It was spacious and comfortable. We were directed to a street parking spot and assured there would be no trouble finding another if we used the car (and they were right).

Our only concern was with the curious bathtub. It was slippery and slick, requiring care for exiting once it was wet. Well, the room was quirky, right to the bathtub.

Free wifi is advertized. It was not available in our room ("the walls are too think"), but another traveler reported "four bars" of signal in his room. The signal was poor in the public area so I ended up talking to the Wunderbar Cafe for wifi. The poor signal at the hotel was a cause for some frustration, but not enough to make us disappointed in the pension.

Breakfast in the Weinstube’s breakfast lounge provided abundant choices of breads, meats, fruit, coffee and cereals. Definitely a great way to start off the day of exploring the magical city of Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

This is a real gem of a find. Great spot within Rothenburg by the side of the museum. A place with character and we loved it. Fabulous room - low ceilings and a separate area for tv and relaxing. Nice bathroom with corner bath. Great food - you won't aways have a table to yourself at breakfast - we enjoyed meeting other travellers and chatting to them. We had booked for two nights and stayed for three. Perfect stay if you are on the Romantic Route.

Room Tip: Perhaps a room atthe back of the hotel as people sit and enjoy a drink outside at the front ill quit...

Our niece was determined to stay here based on reviews, pics and stories of the hobbits that live here. This place most certainly has a magical feel. They only way I can think to describe it would be something you would find at Disneyland, but its actually real. The rooms are very large and the old beams that make up the hotel are amazing if you like history. Rooms are updated but the owners have done a great job to keep the historical and magical feel. Be sure to look for the witches in the breakfast area, hint: look up. We had dinner one night and it was one of the best meals we had throughout the trip. The owner was very gracious as we had to leave out early the next morning and she prepared breakfast early just for us. And, as other reviewers have said cash is king here and the only king, so be prepared. I just loved this place and again wish we had more time to explore. This is a walled city as it was hundreds of years ago and if your driving it can be a bit challenging as the roads are very narrow and full of tourist. The German signs are a tough task as the street names are all so similar. Be sure and go on the Night Watchmans Tour. Not only do you get to see and learn some history of the town, but its hillarious and we were glad we did not miss it. This is a great place I would not spend less than a couple days to soak it all in.

We booked this hotel via their website and arrived during dinner, which was a bit hectic as the lady checking us in was serving food, but she was wonderful, giving us our roomkey & a key to their personal garage for my car before disappearing back into the restaurant.

The room itself was beautiful, with great timbers on the ceiling and a LOT of antique-y stuff displayed everywhere. Not surprising, the hotel is over 600 years old... The room came with a sitting room with a TV and a separate bedroom which worked great for our 5-month old to sleep in peace.

The location is great, as Rothenburg is so very walkable. Just can't say enough about this place. If you like quaint, small and romantic, this is your place.
