Hotel Rappen Rothenburg ob der Tauber

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location situated right outside the town wall. About a five minute walk from the old city centre. Parking was fabulous - onsite and free. However, the wifi was terrible, the shower leaked all over the bathroom floor and onto the carpet and you can see into the bathroom from out on the street. Clean and spacious family room with comfortable beds.

The hotel its situated outside the old city next to the parking lot that’s why I choose this hotel because the old city it’s mostly pedestrian !!! The staff was kind. The breakfast good be better but I definitely recommend this hotel for one night!!!

This is the worst experience in my Europe trip. I was being belittled at the reception by a young and thin lady. She spoke very rudely and very impolite and also showed IMPATIENT when I was asking questions about the town. I have no idea the management of the hotel whether had maintain any training on this unprofessional staff!

The hotel had the best location just outside the walls . You could park the car for free and walk into and around the old town of Rothenburg. The food was very good and the staff very friendly. The room was in the old hotel and was very comfortable and clean. I would stay there again.

the hotel was dated and just sure when the new building is finished it will be great.the staff were wonderful.location is perfect as just at city walls so easy to walk the old city.breakfast was a disgrace,shabby and off putting.shame as it is so easy to do it right.good food next door (same kitchen) ?????? tip.a dressing gown would do a lot as rooms were very cold.

Visiting an exhibition in Nuremberg, I took a gamble on this hotel as it was a bit further away than I would have liked. We were not disappointed. The rooms were perfectly adequate, the restaurant food and drink was great and the breakfast, although it got a little busy, was plentiful and good quality. The location, right outside the Rothenburg city gates, was the icing on the cake.

Location: Good, just outside the city wall... Price: Average Room: Good, has everything you need except a shower curtain Service: Average There was free parking, but you had to get a key from the front desk to unlock the bar blocking the available spaces. The free breakfast was okay, but there was a wait for a table and everything was running out (food, glasses, orange juice...). Not bad.

We stayed here 3 nights for a retreat and found the hotel rooms comfortable - we did upgrade from the basic room - and the buffet breakfast was very good! The conference room was very nice, along with the service for coffee breaks. We also ate a meal in the restaurant and got great service. One of the best features is the proximity to the Old Town, only a few minutes walk.

We spent 3 nights in this beautiful typical hotel on the border of center town. Quite well situated 5mn by walk from main gate to the old city with real German beer garden. Restaurant is nice cosy and everything home made. Exist since 1602 !!! Rappen is a sort if horses where they were used for calèche or brief postman.

This hotel is in a great location but the whole area is currently a building site. We couldn't walk on the pavement either as barriers forced us onto the road. Our room was nice but the building wasn't finished. The breakfast was good. The hotel staff were nice and helpful but found the restaurant staff a bit grumpy. Once the building work is finished it would be a lot better.
