We enjoyed our brief stay in this very old, charming medieval inn with lots of vines growing up the front of the building. The rooms are nicely upgraded, & the food was great. TONS of old world ambience. Once you get inside the walls of the old city, the streets can be VERY narrow for modern day cars, so we had a bit of difficulty finding our way to this place, so I recommend having a map and/or an updated GPS to help get you here. The inn is located within easy walking distance of the main old town square.

I have stayed at this hotel twice now (2010 and 2012) and have not yet had any issues with the service or my room - by happenstance I've been given the same room for both of my visits. The breakfasts are very good as is dinner in the restaurant. I suspect that some travelers may require more coddling than others.

Room Tip: There are two apartment style rooms separate from the main hotel - less than a one minute stroll dow...

This hotel will carry you to medieval age, but with both feet on future! Looking like an medieval tavern, this hotel has the best wi-fi connection that I got in Germany, The room are really confortable, warm and the bathroom is splendid!
With a good breakfast we closed our one night stay, but really good stay.
Perfect to a romantic travel.

We arrived at the Altfrankische Weinstube hungry and exhausted from delayed flights and three train rides - total of 25-hrs in transit. We booked here on the recommendation of family who had stayed here and Trip Advisor ratings. Carmen, one of the employees was working in the re staurant and came out to check us in. The restaurant was closing but she managed to get us in for dinner, which was, we think, one of the best we have ever had. It sure hit the spot and the cold beers and the potato soup was awesome. We were joined at our table by to American travelers who we had met on the train and decided to see if the hotel had a spot for them as well. They did and were very pleased with their accomodations. We were booked in the Guest House down the street (easy walk to hotel) because they had no rooms in the hotel available for 3 when we booked. PROS: The Guest House was wonderful. We had the top floor (up two flights of steep steps) which had two large bedrooms and a hall bath, and small closet area in the hall. We were the only guests staying there for the two nights and we wondered if it would have been noisy (or we would have made a lot of walking noise) for people on the second floor. The ground floor had a VIP sitting area that was very nice. It had a large couch, tv, bar area and was a nice addition to hanging out in the rooms. The breakfast was excellent, and again, a dinner here one night a must. The hotel is located on a quiet back street but within easy walking distance to everything. Carmen was the only bright spot as far as personnel goes. We found the owners to be somewhat aloof, and not very helpful - almost felt we were intruding when we tried to ask a question. Definitely not the warm gracious type.
CONS: Owners - not inviting.
BE SURE you have plenty of Euros on hand, because while they took our credit card for a down payment, they expected cash upon departure. We had to scramble to an ATM to get money before we left, and were on a tight schedule to catch a train. This is something they did not share ahead of time.
There is no wi-fi in the guest house. You have to go to the main building lobby.
Take the cab from the train station if you have luggage. Not necessarily an easy walk with luggage.

I found out about this place from Rick Steves. When I saw that it was in such an old building and had only six rooms, it seemed like the perfect place for me.

Breakfast and wi-fi were included in the room price, so I felt this was a great value. The location was not bad, an 8 euro (which included a small tip) cab ride from the train station, and within easy walking distance of the main square. The room I stayed in was quite cute with plenty of space for me and my giant suitcase. The bathroom was spacious as well, although showering was a tad difficult given the setup. (Photo attached.)

If you want to eat in the restaurant, you have to make a reservation because it seems like everyone in Rothenburg eats there! I had the potato soup and käsespätzle which were both really enjoyable.

We absolutely loved this hotel. It was hands down our favorite on our entire trip. From the moment we got there we felt welcomed. The owner and his wife are absolutely wonderful. This is also a local hangout in the evenings for dinner and drinks so you know that it's legit! We ate here one night for dinner and had drinks both nights (homemade gluhwein was awesome). The food was probably the best I've had in Germany. We can't recommend the hotel enough. The breakfast each morning was lovely as well. The room we had was fairly small (room 6-Kammerl). But we didn't mind because we were only in the room to sleep at night. Definitely stay here!!

This little hotel has everything you need with all the atmosphere to make your stay in Rothenburg magical! The rooms are quaint with original beams in ceiling, comfortable beds, plenty of room! Shower is a little small. The decor in lobby is really cool and gives you such a old world feel. Internet in lobby.
The restaurant, which we missed due to late flight, was packed when we arrived at 9pm, and smelled delicious! Dinner is by candlelight only! I wished we had made it on time! The breakfast was superb with coffee freshly made for you as you enter and sit at your reserved table.
This hotel is very old, which is so cool, but you do have to carry your luggage up small staircases. It was no big deal, just be aware.
Everyone is so friendly and helpful! They moved their own cars to get us a parking spot! They gave us advice on what to see and where to shop. Must pay cash even though you make the reservation on booking.com, so be prepared for that.
Definitely try to get a room here! you will love it!

Room Tip: we had the triple and it was great!
