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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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,... More

We had a great time, and though driving inside the wall is stressful, the parking is great right behind the hotel. The breakfast was great, and we had a lunch and dinner there as well, they were very good. Our room was large and comfortable, though it was an upgrade from basic.

The 3rd floor (2nd floor in Germany) room we had was very large and overlooked the market square - the bathroom was very nice and had recently been upgraded. Free parking in the back (you need directions). Good restaurant and a very nice outdoor courtyard/restaurant eating area (also inside); good, friendly service. Can't go wrong here unless you have trouble... More

Had Laura as our server and she was the best! Spoke great English and helped us through the menu. We ordered Pork roast with potato dumplings.

This hotel is perfectly located right near the town center. It is an old historic hotel with a great restaurant and a lot of charm. They will even do your laundry for a very reasonable price. There is a wonderful bakery right across the street. There is no lift, so be prepared to carry bags upstairs.
