Hotel Rappen Rothenburg ob der Tauber

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Old-style hotel just outside the walls of the old town, ideally situated for a visit to this beautiful town. Smallish room but more than adequate for our one night here. It was a tad humid and warm, but this is a traditional European hotel, not an air-conditioned Holiday Inn! Other folk have complained about the heat, but if you want to sleep in a refrigerator, stay in the USA! Others have also complained about the parking, but we had no problems at all. Yes, there was construction work going on, but we were given simple directions to access the hotel car park (it’s in the back of the hotel) – from the front, where we unloaded, turn right, turn right and turn right, and you’re in the free hotel car park. Restaurant was quite good, though it appears to specialize in catering for groups – there were three groups (30-40 people in each) in different dining rooms when we visited – but fortunately this didn’t appear to impact much on the service for individual diners (though we did have to be redirected from a group room to the room for residents!). Roast pork with dumplings and a mixed salad was very tasty, while my wife enjoyed her vegetable pancake pizza – quite an unusual dish and very good, so she said. Breakfasts good also, hot scrambled and boiled eggs, bacon and sausages, together with fruit salad, cereals and yogurts, breads (no toaster, though!), juices and flasks of coffee brought to the table.

- location is great just 3 walking to inside wall - staff is helpful - breakfast is good - room is clean - once we get there the reception is under renovation so it is very hard to find especially at 7pm where there is no light and sign at all. - pillow is not comfortable

Pretty good. Our room was very big and the beds had a lot of space to roll around. There were three beds, a bunk bed a huge,huge bed and a king bed. We happened to sleep in, so they gave us a platter of food for breakfast which was just as good as a buffet. There were three rooms in the room so, we had some space. The last thing, the man at the front desk was nice, but unhelpful. Over all the hotel was cozy, and had a lot of space. (Take note: there was also a restaurant in the hotel)😃😋

Part of the main hotel is under refurbishment so we stayed in a close one that was not bad. ROOMS were clean and breakfast had a good variety of sweet and salty things. Location really close to the old town centre. Recommended!

Great location just outside the walls of town. 10 min walk from train station. Room basic but clean. Corridors are quite old and fusty. Staff on front desk fine answer questions if you have them. All in all no complaints well situated hotel for an overnights stay.

A wonderful visit - location is perfect, right next to the old city wall gate, with reasonable rates and free parking. Great food serving breakfast (included), lunch and dinner. We had our favorite steak dinner, cooked perfectly, during our week stay, right here! Staff is friendly and helpful. Our room, in the new building, was clean and comfortable with 2 floors, lots of room, 2 bathrooms and a skylight that turned into a balcony! This was our second stay at the hotel, and we will be back, just hoping it's not full after my nice write up. Things to know - the hotel is doing major construction, but that did not affect our visit. If you stay in the new building you have to take a short walk outside for the restaurant. It would be so nice if they would add a coffee machine in the room. The workout room was unavailable because of construction.

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.
