Reviewed October 11, 2013

This is a very small family hotel (perhaps only 6 rooms) located at the center (and silent) charming Rothenburg, inside the walls, minutes of pleasant walking form the town center. You can arrive with your car (recommended!) - finding a parking place is a challenge - but the very friendly owners certainly will help you as the did for us.
Beautiful atmosphere, nice rooms, top clean.
They run an excellent dinner restaurnat downstairs. Not to be missed.
Run for it if there are still room left.
For sure we shall come again once we are again in the area.

And - do not miss:
(1) the evening English guided night tour - leaving from the main square.
(2) Hike down the vineyards to the double equaduct bridge, cross the Tauber river, and go up the nice trail to the summit. beautiful walk, and the views...

This hotel was wonderful. From the outside, it looked like a picture from a postcard. Inside, it was so quaint with antiques, old wooden tables, a piano, wine bottles, and history. Mario, his wife, and daughter were wonderful. Breakfast was included and was very good. The room was very spacious & clean. The bed & pillows were very comfortable. The bathroom was very large & modern with amenities such as shampoo, lotions, bath crystals, heated towel rack, & hairdryer.
The most intriguing part of the visit was that the "English speaking club" is held there on Wednesday nights - and we happened to be there that night. It was wonderful! We met "Herman the German", Wolfgang, and a host of others eager to share their stories. It was definitely a highlight of our trip.
The location of the hotel was central to everything, including the town square. Be sure and go to the night watchman's tour - it's fantastic!

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor and it was a spacious and comfortable room. It was large enough for a fam...

After our initial meeting with the owner, who was very gruff and demanded to see our reservation sheet, even though I knew he had our name and I had emailed the night before to confirm our reservation, we finally got to our room. We booked a suite and it was 2 large rooms plus a huge bathroom. Initially we were delighted. We were very tired and went to bed at 10:00 on a Saturday night - our mistake. Our room had 4 windows (one of which wouldn't shut properly) over the front and the street. Noise from the smokers and the people on the street was nearly intolerable and we just couldn't sleep until after 1:30 am. So that dampened our thoughts about the place. I would recommend this place, but ask for a room that doesn't face the street. The breakfast was typical.

My husband and I were directed to this restaurant by a different hotel in which we were staying for our anniversary dinner. It did not disappoint us. The small quaint tavern was set with low lighting, candles on the tables, and the entrance had vintage pianos and décor. We enjoyed the traditional German fare. They were notable for their Pork roast and gravy which was delicious and my husband had the array of local German sausages. We had a lovely German wine with dinner and of course started out with some local German beer in steins. The only thing not on the menu was Sauerbraten which we knew going into the venture. We had a lovely experience and would definitely go back.

We had never stayed in a 600 year old building so thought this would be a good place to experience life in the 16th Century. Our conclusion is that life in the 1500s hadn't become much brighter--at least indoors--since the Dark Ages.
It took a while to adjust to the darkness as we entered. As there is no "front desk" and no one was there to greet us, we weren't sure we were in the right place. We called out and the manager appeared from what must have been the kitchen. Without so much as a "welcome", he gave us our room key, showed us where to park our car and advised us that their restaurant/bar would not be open this evening.
As previous reviewers have mentioned, the entire place is cluttered with... stuff. Our dimly lit room had a huge, ominous portrait of a lady peering out as us as we lay in bed and there was very little room to store our luggage and still be able to move around. The bathroom reminded my wife of the one in her parent's camper--ready access to the sink when sitting on the toilet.
The breakfast was the highlight of our stay and improved the overall rating from a 2 to a 3. The charm of living in the dark and dreary 16th Century quickly wore off. We will look for more modern and friendly accommodations on our next visit to Rothenburg.

I echo Joe C's input. A rustic place, quiet, good price, fair breakfast. The hired staff seem nice enough. Tons of non-related 'decorative' junk everywhere. The owner should not be in the hospitality business. We walked into the bar at 10:30 and were greeted with 'one drink and we are closed' -as blunt as that. We were limited to the one while others, who were there before us and seemed like locals, had 3 more with regular offerings. With all the rooms available in Rothenburg, a return visit would have us elsewhere. Suggest you keep looking.

We had a very nice suite of rooms on top floor of the "annex" up the road. Reasonable price and the morning breakfast was fine. The Lord of Rings decorations were a bit intense, but overall the ambiance was something we enjoyed. What was baffling was the way we were treated by Mario, the owner. When we arrived he was hostile, seeming not to want to acknowledge that we had reservations. Then he barked out orders on where our room was and indicated he would find a place for us to park. We walked up to our room,and unloaded our suitcases then came down to the street to be chewed out some more for not being quicker. We tried to make light of this treatment, attributing it to a certain strain of German personality, but it was so hostile that it was not fun to experience. Later we stopped by the restaurant to see what was on the menu for diner and again Mario was hostile to being asked an innocent question. Maybe we caught him on a bad day.
