Perfect Location

As other reviews state, there is no air conditioning. This had us worried, but with the fan, it ended up being okay. The location is perfect, just a few steps to everything. This is an older, dated hotel but it is very clean. We enjoyed the outdoor terrace for drinks and then in the morning for breakfast. Breakfast was delicious! The staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and loved Rothenburg ob de Tauber.

A fairy tale hotel in the most special fairy tale town in Europe
Harvey B

Just imagine being cast in a Disney movie or even cartoon. If you saw the cartoon Beauty and the Beast, you saw what Rothenburg ob der Tauber looks like. This fairy tale town is magnificent. The town is surrounded by a beautiful medieval wall in excellent shape. You can walk along the wall around the city taking in the most beautiful views of the town. We felt like we went back in time on this visit, almost as if we were transported into a Disney movie. Everything was so well laid out.

Hotel Eisenhut is the oldest hotel in the town, and is right next to the market square. The staff were always so helpful and the hotel is magnificent with its courtyards, balconies, eating areas, etc. You are swept off your feet just being in this hotel. The food is outstanding, and their breakfast buffet is amazing. Besides being next to market square, you are near lots of restaurants, and one of the famous streets and buildings drawn in the cartoon Beauty and the Beast. The room was very spacious, with a lot of nice features including a balcony that lets you sit out in the evening and take in the beauty of the city and the medievel wall. Don't miss this hotel and town if you love history and fantasy.

Spacious room with great service

Let me start by saying these reviews (like many things in life) are relative to the person providing the review and the person reading the review. One person's idea of an excellent hotel is different than someone else's. It would be good for TripAdvisor to have an objective way of scoring hotels - like booking.com.

To give you an idea of my experience with hotels... I've stayed in more hotels than I can count all over North America and Europe. (I used to travel for my job.) While I wouldn't say I'm an expert, I have seen quite a bit.

With this context, here's the good and bad of this property...

- Very nice and spacious room - We got upgraded, so not all rooms are as big as ours was.
- Beautiful decor throughout hotel.
- Much nicer than the other hotel I stayed at a few years ago (Hotel Goldener Hirsch)
- Helpful and friendly staff
- Car service in dedicated garage - They literally parked the car for us in a private garage.
- Remodeled bathroom

No air conditioning. There was a heat wave in Europe during our trip, so this was particularly important. They did provide a fan, which helped.

This hotel was one of my favorites on our extended European vacation. Of course, being in such a beautiful town helped.
