Hands down the most elegant and beautiful place we stayed while in Europe this summer. The building in which the hotel is located is in the heart of historic old Rothenberg ob der Tauber. Walk a few steps in one direction, you get breathtaking views of the city across the valley. Walk a few steps in the other direction, and you are at the Marktplatz, the heart of old Rothenberg. While close to the action, the hotel is very quiet, a real oasis. The owners were delightful, and took time to speak to us each time we passed through the common area. They thoughtfully provided an English-language city map to us, as well as a great Romantic Road map, when they knew that was our interest. Breakfast was cooked to order, and delicious. The house is in excellent condition. The team who restored it several years ago knew what they were doing—protecting the structure, keeping interesting architectural details visible, but adding all the modern conveniences. The suite we were in (the Bird Suite) lacked nothing. Bath/shower combo where both the water and stopper worked! Toiletries. Washcloths. A mini-bar. The living room was about 5 steps below the bedroom, and the bathroom was off of the living room. The entire suite is on the second floor; there is no elevator, and there are quite a few steps (due to the high ceilings), so that may be a consideration for anyone with mobility issues. Herrnschlosschen is air conditioned; however, as Bart told us when he showed us the room, the windows opened, and the A/C wasn’t really necessary. The weather was quite mild while we were there in early August, 2021, so I’m not sure how it is when the weather is warmer. However, we had lows in the mid-50’s and highs around 70, and it was perfect. The location of the room on a corner—with open windows on two sides of the bedroom, and a large window in the living room—made it more than comfortable. We needed to park a car, and it was no problem. In the day time, it needed to be moved (not sure where) but we were able to access on short notice when we needed it, right at the front door. Bart and Anita could not have been nicer, more attentive hosts. they obtained reservations for us at two nearby restaurants, as well as connecting us to an excellent tour guide. From providing umbrellas to giving us directions, they were always available and very generous with their time. Our only regret is that we weren't there longer! Two nights was not enough.

Wonderful experience. Bart and his family are so kind and hospitable, and Rotenburg is a living page from a fairytale. When we got in, we were welcomed with a delicious local wine and shown to our very comfortable Hunters Room. Unfortunately, the day we arrived, the restaurant was closed but they were able to arrange a lovely evening for us at Mittersmeyer a few blocks away. Breakfast in the morning was delicious, and everyone at the hotel was full of recommendations and warmth. Can't recommend enough!

I booked this hotel as a splurge on our four hotel vacation tour of Western Germany. I had high expectations of "luxury" based on the price, description, and reviews. The hotel exceeded our expectations, not because it was luxurious, but because very well run in a very friendly way. This is a small hotel, or maybe better described as a large bed and breakfast. Bart and his small staff were very helpful and easy to talk to. We asked for and got two perfect dinner recommendations. In general, Rothenburg doesn't feel like a tourist town, despite being one of the top tourist spots in Germany.

I can’t recommend this hotel more. The service was impeccable starting with the owner’s patience with all of my questions with the regions constantly changing COVID requirements. Once here we were greeted with a welcome drink and checkin consisted of a detailed overview of the city, up to date times and access, and things we shouldn’t miss. He helped us make reservations for the restaurant in the hotel that night (see my other review but this shouldn’t be missed) and also at another restaurant in town. We stayed in the tulip suite which was fantastic and included a large soaking tub and private balcony overlooking the garden. It was a little rainy for our trip so we couldn’t take as much advantage of it as we would have liked but I can only imagine how amazing it would be in spring and summer. We can’t wait to come back and stay again sometime.
