The location is perfect for seeing all the Rothenburg sites. The entire staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Good size rooms. Well laid out breakfast with all the standard German breakfast fair. Cooked to order eggs were a big plus.

It was a very "Hansel & Gretel" type hotel with a ski lodging type feel. The staff were extremely nice and friendly, even wearing the traditional German clothing--dirndls and all. Loved it! Even the restaurant fit the bill. It saved us a great deal of time looking for one after a very long travel day. The owners even helped us...

We stayed here three nights and we had a huge living room, a bedroom, and bath. (Room 1). The room per night including a judge breakfast was less than 100 euros. You are in the center of town with plenty of shopping, restaurants, and close to all the sights. Only a 10 minute walk from the train station. This was...

We stayed here one night in September during the unusual heat wave. We stayed on an upper floor, with our room overlooking the back courtyard-very peaceful. Lots of space in the room and the typical comfortable German beds. The bathroom was large with great water pressure in the shower. Shower gel was provided. The window in the room did open...

Really enjoyed my stay at the Goldener Greifen, as soon as we arrived the staff were very polite & helpful, showing us to our rooms, did like the upstairs hall, it adds real character to the inside of the building. It was a good size room with a nice new shower & toilet, but the room itself was a bit...

We stayed overnight at the Hotel-Gasthof Goldener Greifen in Rothenburg ob der Tauber as part of a 2-week driving tour in Germany to see smaller, picturesque towns which still had well preserved town centers. Rothenburg old-town itself is beautiful and charming, coming across as a picture-perfect example of mid-1500-1700 Germany. It is interesting to read about the city’s history in...

Rothenburg is an awesome town and it's definitely worth staying a night in. During the day the town is packed with tourists, but at night it quiets down and is almost magical. Hotel-Gasthof Goldener Greifen is an old mayor's house turned into a hotel. Has wi-fi and breakfast included. Staff were very nice and friendly and quick to help you...

We found this delightful spot on TripAdvisor and were so pleased. The location is perfect -- just steps from the town center. Easy to do a walking tour, shop, visit St. Jacob's Church and hike. The beds were comfy, room was quiet, "continental breakfast" was more than ample: juices, Bavarian rolls, cheeses and sliced meats, eggs to order, yogurt and...

Location is in center of the town. Hotel style is an old house, boutique and warm. Breakfast is nice. No wi-fi in the room. Many stairs, dfficult if you bring the big luggage. Owner runs the restsurant, so busy all the time and has no time to answer your questions.

We stayed in Room 17 for two restful nights while in Rothenburg. The hotel is very conveniently located, just a few steps from the main square. The bed was two twins pulled together and each twin was very comfy. We took the supplied sheet/comforter and exchanged it for the bed sheet and used just that simple sheet as our covers,...
