I was traveling with a school group and we took up most of the hotel. The rooms were clean. The dinner and breakfast were well prepared. The staff was accommodating but not what I would call friendly. The biggest issue we had was the heat. It was 85 degrees and the rooms had no A/C so us Americans who love our cooling units had a very hard time sleeping in the hot and stuffy rooms. If the weather was cooler, I am sure we would have enjoyed it more. I did sit on the front patio for a beer, and the breeze was nice.

This hotel is right across the street from the train station which makes it extremely convenient if you arrive by train. Our room was in the building next to the hotel and was pretty basic but quite comfortable. The hotel does not have air conditioning but the room was comfortable with the window open and since we were in the back was very quiet. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was quite good with the usual items. Hotel is about a pleasant 10 minute walk from the city walls.

I was travelling to many cities in Germany so mostly get on DB train, so I decided to choose this hotel...when we reach it just across the road. Its' not time to check in yet but we can left the luggage there at the restaurant room. The lady who is at the reception is very kind as we did buy breakfast but they open at 7am but our train is at 7am. so we couldn't eat and she return the money back to us. There is elevator, the room is clean and ok, the only complains will be the bathroom which is very cold inside (even try to turn on the heater ..I went there first week of May) and when you take a shower which is in the tub there is only 1 small mirror so its like the whole floor outside the bathtub is wet easily. (water splash out when shower). In the next morning we have leave the hotel around 6.50am as we have to get on the train when we come downstairs there the room was close so we have to knock or ring the bell...we just need to return the key as we deicided to pay for the room since we check in, there was a tall man open the door then said its not time yet have to wait until 7 am... and then shut the door to us! We was shock! rude and we need to catch the train!...lucky we found one guess which saw the whole situation and said we can leave the key with him and he will pass it for us.

Watch your visa with this hotel. We paid cash for our room when we arrived, but after we left they charged our visa for the room again. We contacted them and asked them to reverse the charge on our credit card, but after several weeks (and several reminders) they did nothing. We eventually had to contact our credit card company to dispute the double charge.

I chose this hotel because it is right across the street from the railroad station, and I needed a place to stay for one night and still have a decent amount of time to see the town. I got a room for about $45, arriving in mid-afternoon from Vienna with 3 changes of train and a heavy suitcase. First of all, I wanted to take a quick nap, but found that one of the window shades didn't work. I called the front desk, and within minutes, someone came up, took a look at the shade, and II was assigned a suite-sized room. The hotel public areas were a little worn at the edges, but my room was fine. The breakfast, for 8 Euros extra, was a vast spread of the usual German cold cuts, eggs, self-serve unlimited coffee, and was well worth the price. I had enough time to visit the old town twice--once in the afternoon, and once for the tour with the night watchman on the day of my arrival. I didn't go again the next day because it was raining. Although checkout was at 11, I chose to sit in the lobby while waiting for my train, although the management is happy to hold luggage for those so inclined. There is also a pub in the basement that, when I was there, catered to a young crowd on a Friday night.

My son and I stayed here for a couple nights in July, the room was just enough for us with lots of "Old World"charm, slanted ceilings whit a window that opened onto the slate roof, pretty neat. Breakfast was huge, filling and wonderful as with most gasthaus' we've stayed at. The Euro Cup play-offs were on TV our first night there, so the place was packed with locals, always love going where the locals are. We walked down the street to pick up a pizza, brought it back and ordered a bottle of Spätlese from the hotel bar, decent price and very good wine.

My group had to stay here for 5 nights renting 14 rooms. This hotel has 2 houses. Most of us that stayed in the second house which had 3 floors and no lifts had many complaints including very cold rooms, the layout of the toilet in some of the bathrooms made it very difficult to use, buffet breakfast that had NO hot foods. This hotel was well below the standards that we are accustomed to. Friendly staff was a plus but also the staff that live in the Hotel were constantly arguing in their room and was very loud and disturbing. Wifi was bad.

We arrived 2 hours early but the hotel staff were nice and friendly and allowed us to store our luggage in their office room until check in. A bit of a walk to the town center of rothenburg but right next to the train station which was great for us so we didn't have to carry our luggage far. Clean room, the bathroom was newly renovated.

We stayed here one night while touring German Christmas markets. It was our least favorite hotel of the trip. We rented two rooms, as we have two teenage children - it's usually the same price as one quad room. Each room had a somewhat noisy wood floor. Also the beds were squeaky. These are things that normally never bother me, but I noticed them here. The decor was traditional german style, lots of pine furniture, it was pleasant enough. One decent size wardrobe, a desk and two chairs. The sheets were very thin and worn, however they were clean and fresh. There was a lot of dust between the bed and the wall, which I found when I looked for an outlet for which to plug my phone charger. The mattresses were thin and not as comfortable as I would like. The windows open fully. The room temperature was fine. The bathroom was newly renovated. The blow dryer was adequate. The water pressure was good, but the temperature was only warm. I woke up with a sore back and needed a hot shower, which did not happen. The towels were on the small side, lower quality, but clean and fresh. There was a heated towel rack. Two bath towels, two hand towels, no wash cloths. Refillable stand alone hand soap and all-in-one shower soap bottles. Average quality soap. At check in, the receptionist made a point to tell us that breakfast was included, so we decided to eat at the hotel in the morning. It was below average german breakfast. Breads were slightly stale, meats were low quality. No mustard. Scorched scrambled eggs. The coffee was good. There was a large tour group staying there, and they almost filled the breakfast room. The staff working at breakfast appeared unhappy. *Also, the price I was quoted on TripAdvisor did NOT include breakfast and we were charged an additional €32 at check out for that really sub-par meal. I would not stay at this hotel again. We tent camp a lot, so we are fine in less-than-perfect environments. However this hotel was not a good value for money based on bed, shower and food quality. The town, however, is a must see. Absolutely charming. I wish we had two nights there. (In a different hotel.)

This place is right across the road from the railway station. The owners are decent folk who run a nice place. They stored our bags till check in time and gave us a nice room at the back away from the road, It was a large room and had nice beds with a lot of space around. The washroom was small but we stayed only one night but enjoyed our stay. Left early for Munich so I could not say anything about the breakfast. Would recommend this place as it is very convenient for travellers by rail. Very short walking distance to the city and there are very nice eateries on the way to the market square
