We like this hotel so we booked a couple of nights again. When I called I was not informed that the hotel had a "ruhetag" both the nights we booked. So when we arrived the hotel was almost closed down. Bar closed, restaurant closed and the whole place virtually empty. It all felt very strange and we checked out after...

coming back here. It´s a nice old place in the middle of town. Rooms are nice and clean, but make sure that you get a room in the main building. The pub is a very special place and the restaurant serves good food. Prices are reasonable.

Ellwangen is slightly off the main tourist trail (thank God) but very close to the A7 Autobahn. I discovered it and the Roter Ochsen many years ago on the way from Italy to Northern Germany. On my most recent visit, I noticed many changes, including a pedestrianised town centre which makes for a very pleasant and relaxing environment. Ellwangen was...

We found this hotel thru the Flair Hotel book which is an association of hotel/breweries. The hotel itself is average and a bit tattered at the edges. The evening we stayed the temperatures have been in the 90s and the hotel lacks air conditioning. This was a bit uncomfortable from my American perspective. We sated on a Monday and the...

Our second visit to this place didn´t disappoint us. In the middle of town with a private garage has a feeling of welcome all over it. It is the kind of hotel where you can easily stay for a few nights while exploring Ellwangen and the area around. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and pleasant and there...

I spent here 4 nights for business in June, 2012. I had a double room which was very big, clean and comfortable. It did not have brand new furniture nor fridge or kettle, but there was a big wardrobe, a roomy bathroom and a "living-space corner". The entrance to the rooms is through a very pleasant sort of living room...

The hotel is located in the middle of town, with its own garage. The lady who owns the hotel is very present and pleasant. The room, actually a suite, on the top floor was spacious and well kept, with a huge magnificent bathroom. The interior of the hotel is very original and nice. If you use the hotel for your...

Roter Ochsen, the historic gasthof associated with Roter Ochsen Brewery in the small south German town of Ellwangen, is a truly charming place to make your base on a visit to many historic and picturesque places, including Nordlingen, Dinkelsbuhl, Rothenburg and Ulm. A family-run gasthof, we received a warm welcome. It is beautifully decorated in traditional South German style, yet...
