We ended up here because the place we had reserved had double-booked us. They called up their friends five kilometers away (and five km closer to Rothenburg!) and we happily went about our way. We felt SO LUCKY! They had re-done three wonderful room in May 2005, and we took one of them for 50 Euros, including breakfast. The older rooms, which were also lovely, were slightly less expensive. We had wonderful views, a short drive to Rothenburg, and a very comfortable room. The family (Familie Uhl) was very friendly. They have a restaurant as well; I think it's the only one in the town. We didn't end up eating there, but the breakfast was fantastic. Amazing coffee, for one.
One draw back is that the gasthaus is across the street from a church, and the church rings its bells for the farmers. So, if you don't mind lovely ringing early on, enjoy! If you do mind it, just know it will be over soon and you can go back to sleep.
Tuesdays are their Ruhetag; they open on Wednesdays at 5 P.M.
They also offer wine, soda, water, and snacks downstairs. You write down what you took and it is charged to you when you leave. We were the only English speakers there. The gasthaus has limited English speaking, but they are so nice that I don't think anyone would have trouble. We loved it.
This hotel was fine. The front desk lady was not very friendly to me, but the rest of the people we encountered there were fine. The bathrooms have heated towel racks, which were nice. The room we had was small, but we didn't spend much time in there. There is a good restaurant on the first floor. The food and beer were both good.
Family owned and operated, very pleasant, clean and reasonably priced. The food is good, and the walk to the walled city takes about 5 minutes. There is an internet cafe next door "Der Computer Shop" that is run by a local man who speaks very good English and has a ready smile.
Some parking behind the building, the ground floor is a restaurant run by the family. The general area is quiet and pleasant.
I spent two nights in the hotel and it's only 25 meters from the town square and only 20 meters from the information office.
The hotel building was built in the 12th century and in 1540 the future emperor Ferdinand I. stayed in this building and in 1546 Emperor Charles V.
There have been continuous renovations since the 1990's and the hotel now has a wonderful dining room, a whirlpool, and an elevator along with the great traditional decor.
The staff were always friendly and helpful to me and even personally showed me around the building and to my room on the 2nd floor when I checked in.
My room was nice with my windows overlooking the main street leading to the town square. There was a writing desk, cable tv, alarm clock/radio, a large armour, a personal lockbox, and a large bathtub in the tiled bathroom.
Included in my room price was a large and nicely varied breakfast buffet.
I highly recommend this place to stay in.
Great location, friendly staff, whirlpool, breakfast buffet, elevator, historic building
This inn is bare-bones, but cheap, clean, and cozy.
There is a restaurant downstairs that serves traditional German food. Don't get the goulasch soup--it's quite salty.
Hotel Raidel offers the bare-minimum--clean sheets, a shower, heater, a good breakfast. We found the building charming and cozy, and the proprietor friendly and hospitable. If you are looking for amenities, this is not the place for you--there is no soap, shampoo or hair dryer. This place is good if you are on a budget, and just need a place to crash for a night or two.
Historic building, cozy. Good traditional German breakfast.
Trust is of essence in opening your home to visitors. After stopping into the visitor center in the town square, following directions set forth, we finally reached the front door of a Gastof. The word Gastof reminds me of Gaslight Village in up-state NY but that has nothing to do with anything. Anyways, we simply let ourselves in and walked directly to the restaurant for there was the only stirring movements present. One young women just walked us to a corner room, equipped with a view of the Tauber valley, handed us the key and said "Make sure yoooo clos da door."
Shortlye after she parted, "Breakfast eees at nine."
That 's all, the whole Gastof was ours.
Ghosts and unexplained phenomenoms are a shakey topic with me. I get a chill as I speak of ghost laden stories and my eyes tear uncontrollably. It's strange. While staying at the Gastof, just before sleep I checked on the car to make sure all was locked up. With all kosher I laid my head down and quickly was into dreaming. The next morning after waking, showering and getting dressed we had early morning plans to walk the Wall around the city. When I got to the car just outside the front door, all of the cars windows were half down, nothing was touched, but the seats were misted in dew. I'm still confused.
One small inn in a little distance to Rothenburg, in the midst of country surroundings. Very nice owners, a good service and pretty rooms. In the warm season one can have breakfasts outside. Directly at the Altmuehl spring and small sea where also camping is possible. Comfortable, quietly and well. To recommend.
A sweet family-run hotel near the Plonlein, this is a good value accommodation. The rooms are newly renovated and quaint. It's a nice change from standard 3-4 star hotels.
Breakfast starts from 8am and there is a wide variety of breakfast favourites, including chillded Sekt (like champagne).
Ask for a room on the quieter side if you don't fancy hearing the horse-rides downstairs passing by the hotel front.
Plus: there's a great terasse if you fancy a beer or a card game with your friends.
Fast, efficient, and very clean. That's how I'd characterize our German accommodations. We had a pleasant stay at Hotel Jedermann in Munich. Hotel Klosterstueble came highly recommended by both my guide books and by other VTers, and we weren't disappointed. It's only 2 minutes from the castle garden and 3 from the Rathaus. Erika runs a tight (and spotless) ship. The breakfast buffet is sumptuous. The rooms are a little small, but the furnishings are beautiful. I'd stay there again.
A great little room for $55 Euros, this was the couch & furniture.
Room was really nice, clean and comfortable and a great deal for the money.
This small dining room served as a meeting place for a breakfast buffet, provided with the room. The meats, cheeses, fruits, breads, cereals, spreads and juices were of the highest quality. .
One of the joys of staying in a smaller, family-owned hotel of this sort is getting acquainted with fellow travelers over breakfast in a manner that doesn't seem to happen in those big corporate/chain hotels.
Our room was on the second floor just above this garden patio (you can just barely see the window through the tree leaves.) We opened the window just slightly at night for some fresh air and found the gurgling of the fountain to be quite relaxing.
A comfortable, clean room with efficient, friendly service in a hotel that is located within the walls of the medieval city. And the price was very reasonable. We could not have asked for anything more!
The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. See additional entries and photos of garden and dining room.
If there is room in your budget, this is one of the more expensive hotels in Rothenburg, and it is worth the money.
Situated on the edge of the ancient city wall with an unobstructed view of the whole Tauber valley from the breakfast terrace, there is no price that can buy this view.
See the website listed on this page. If money's not a problem, it is well spent at Burg-Hotel.
Great rooms & suites, good food, and professional friendly staff. But the view is the most amazing part. Interiors of hotel on the web site also attest to its class and charm.
One sunny breakfast on the ancient city-wall terrace of the hotel and you are hooked. Even the views on the hotel's web site don't do it justice - they have to be seen to be believed. And some of the rooms during "specials" (see web site) are surprisingly affordable.
