Rothenburg Lodge
Reviewed November 4, 2012

I have enquired on a 4 person room on a particular date and Miss Yang responded that there is still vacancy with the quoted price. She asked me to confirm if i want to book. I replied her email the next day that i wish to confirm. After waiting for a few days, seeing no reply from her, i emailed her again asking what i should do next. She replied me that the room is already booked. I called her immediately saying that i have already confirmed the booking and why the room was still booked. She told me that i did not confirm the room type with her. WHAT????? How can she ignore the fact that i have sent her the confirmation and told me that i did not confirm with her? Liar!!!

Rotthenburg: A MingSu located at a quiet & serene part of Yilan. We stayed in room102 located on ground floor (one of their cheapest room). The room is as per what you see on their website = Wow!. Mr Xu and Ms Yang are both great! They are v attentive and Mr Xu even drove us to National Centre for traditional arts as well as to Kamalan bus centre.
Info:
1. Take Kamalan bus from Taipei to Yilan (1+hr).
2. Don't attempt to walk to Rotthenburg! Enure u have Rotthenburg address with u. Cab is the transport for tourist to n fro Rotthenburg. Cab cost ard NT170.
3. Check in: Strictly at 3pm. If you reach too early, why not visit National Centre for Traditional Arts.
Suggestion: 
If u only have 1 day for Yilan, try National centre for traditional arts and luodong night market.
If you have 2 days, you could use one day to do nothing and wind down/take photos in Rotthenburg. 

Will definitely come here again! Thanks Mr Xu and Ms Yang for their great hospitality.

It's like the cozy homely resort I'll like to own in the suburbs as a retreat when escaping from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Don't miss the afternoon tea served! And the excellent healthy spread for breakfast.

Lovely place :)

I went to this minsu back in 2010. Stayed for 2D1N, after arrived at taoyuan, booked a car straight down to this minsu. First saw it super like the building and ambience. Is really like you are in Europe now. The owners were so friendly and kind. Offered to help us carry our luggage to level 2 where our room was. At night, the owner still offered us a drive down luodong night market and fetch us back too! Ludong night market the foods are super nice. It's really like staying at home, so friendly and environment was great. Me and friend had a great sleep there.. Sleep till morning. Planning my next year trip back to taiwan, this minsu sure will be on my list again.

Hi! Me and my husband were there for our honeymoon and we stayed for 2 nights which we booked directly via their website. Upon arrival, people were shooting an idol drama (featuring Vaness - Chocolate related drama) on site.

The lodging exceeded our expectations - It was big, airy and clean. What I love was that they provided a sachet of onsen powder so that we could "bao4 zao3 (soak)" in the big bathtub. The grounds were also very well-maintained and lovely.

The owners were very friendly. It is a bit isolated, but I'd totally recommend it! The place is a NT170 cab ride from the Luodong night market if you call Kevin. ~NT200 if u go by taxi meter.

we stayed in the lodge for one day right before leaving Taiwan. more as a wind-down before going home. we were immediately thrilled upon arrival! the lodge is beautiful!!! we can see the owners have paid so much attention to the finest details. with the relatively big group, we took a two-double-bed room and a one-double-bed room. the rooms are so spacious yet cozy. my boy loves the swing chair in the room! =)

when we arrived, we were served afternoon tea. Ms Yang also gave us a lot of good information about where to go. she also helped us order taxi to the nearby night market and give us recommendations on the signature stalls there!

it was all so pleasant, relaxing and warming stay!

We stayed 2 nights at Rothenburg Lodge (minshu) (RT) from 18-20 Dec 2011. The stay was booked directly with the owner Ms Yang through their website after we did some research online.

We arrived at Luodong train station and was picked up by Mr Hsu. When we arrived at RT, we were amazed by the beautiful structure and garden (there were more than 100 trees according to Mr Hsu!). It was as if we were in Germany! We were served welcome tea and cakes upon arrival. Mr Hsu and his wife (Ms Yang) were very friendly, caring and helpful. They gave RT a very personnal touch and homely feel. My family felt very well taken of during the 3 days/2 nights stay. They recommended several places for us to visit and dine at. Mr Hsu even drove us to several car rental companies when we told them we wanted to hire a car. For foreigners wishing to hire a car for self-drive, it seems it will be almost impossible to hire a car in Luodong due to some licence issues (it is thus advised to hire one in Taipei). However, Mr Hsu managed to locate a car rental company for us in Yilan which was willing to rent us a car. Due to inconvenience of picking up and returning car in Yilan town, we decided to go with hiring a taxi for 8 hours per day instead (at NT$2500).

This is the 1st time we are staying in a minshu in Taiwan and we are glad we stayed at Rothenburg lodge. The lodge was equipped with plenty of reading materials and travel brochures. We had 2 days of hearty and healthy breakfast at the lodge. We were served eggs, soup, choice of soya bean drink/fruit juice, salad, bread, fruitsand yoghurt. The portions were also very generous.

The only complaints we had was the lack of cupboards and places to hang our clothes/towels in the room.

Room Tip: Only 6 rooms are available, 2 on ground floor and 4 on upper floor. Rooms on ground floor opens up t...
