    The building is quite old, breakfast is good but simple, poor. There's nor air conditioning in the rooms.

    The location of he hotel is close to city center so that was good. Staff was very polite and gave us good suggestions about where to have a good dinner and also offer us a private garage with no additional charge for our motorcycle.

    Perfect location with just a few minutes walk into the main town. Room was perfect for family of four, loads of space and very clean. Great shower in the morning and breakfast was very good varied choice for the whole family, would highly recommended and would happily book again (also definitely recommend heading to Michelangelo’s restaurant immediately inside the town wall for dinner, incredibly reasonably priced for a busy tourist destination and the pizzas were out of this world!!)

    Must check in by 9pm. Not good if you are held up somewhere. Stayed two nights but staff refused one hour check out extension to 12pm because lack of Cleaners. Shouldn’t the hotel accommodate customers and not the other way round? Can’t believe An hour checkout extension to only 12pm is rejected when the hotel seemed not too full on a slow Monday. Spoilt our impression which was rather good till that point

    Decent breakfast. Decent size room. Hotel staff offered to help us reserve dinner table and tell us about free parking area.

    Karin at the front desk is the definition of "friendly hospitality". She greeted us upon our late arrival, giving us tips for sightseeing, and asking what time we preferred to have breakfast. After checking in, I picked up a pack of tea to have before bed, she brought us a hot pot of water with mugs. The breakfast the next morning was that of a 5 star hotel - the granola bar was overflowing with healthy additions, the service was over the top. Wonderful. I would definitely go again.

    From the outside it doesn't look very welcoming, but that is overwhelmingly compensated by the staff and the interior. Although the room and breakfast room are decent and nothing special (say basic German). In the room there is sufficient seating opportunity. But there is a large and wide balcony that you share with all others on the floor, but where there are no seats. Another minor thing was that there is no airconditioning so t was a bit hot. Opening the window is an option, but then there is quite a lot of traffic noise in the morning during the week, as the hotel is located at a main street out of town.

    This hotel has its own parking lot without surcharge. They have an elevator (which is a bit small) and wide corridors and rooms. We had a wheel-chair with us but that was no problem. It was in all other hotels in Rothenburg were we tried to reserve. The hotel is conveniently located at walking distance from the train station and the city walls, plus less than ten minutes from the highway. A triple room was indeed a space for three people and three good beds. The space in the bath room was more limited (especially where to place your belongings). In the room th Very friendly and patient staff that is always willing to explain and to serve drinks during the late evening (until 11 pm when the reception closes). The breakfast was more than sufficient with all kind of super-food additions to the usual cereals, bread and yoghurt.
