We were greeted warmly and the location cannot be beat. The rooms are located above a small store that carries everything you could want, from fresh produce and meat to beer/wine and household basics. If you forgot anything for your trip, it is right there. We found our room roomy (had two rooms actually) and it was very clean. Breakfast...

Perfect location within Rothenburg. The breakfast Klause served was delicious. One of the best we had in Germany. The bathroom, although not in the room, was right next door to the bedroom and it was not shared. I would stay here again!

Spotlessly clean, helpful and friendly owner, well-located close to the main city gate. Not a lot of useless extras, but extremely comfortable bed, lots of towels, absolute silence and a wonderful breakfast. A fantastic value considering the very reasonable price.

We stayed here one night, in their outbuilding close to their grocery store. Klaus, Elke, and Erich are all super nice hosts and let us store our luggage before and after checkout and use their bathroom. The room was clean and cute. Breakfast was excellent. The location is great too - on an adorable street an easy walk from the...

Friendly and efficient hosts. Top breakfast in the top floor dining room. Good room inside the town walls with a great view of Markus Tum and the stork's nest on top. I wished I could stay longer but the Dolomites were calling. So little time so much to see ... SLTSMTD

The gusethouse is located on one of the main street, it is about 200 meter away from the main city square. Rooms are very clean, breakfast are great with many options. The grocery below sells many typical franken wines from the area. We would recommend this guesthouse

We stayed 2 nights at the Pension Elke and found it to be THE best deal in Rothenburg. Klaus is a fantastic host and puts a lot of hard work into running a great little hotel above his store. This place had by far the best price/performance ratio of any hotel we stayed in on our trip. It is simple...

The accommodation is above the only grocery (actually, a compact general store, too) within the walls of Rothenburg. Klaus is constantly in motion with the store and his inn but he makes it work. Very attentive to our needs while running the place - including some excellent dining suggestions. Typical Europe - compact rooms, stairs, no elevator, but clean and...

Cons: - You would feel like living in someone's house, which has undergone many rounds of expansion. We actually got lost with the many staircases and hallways... even climbed to a wrong attic for breakfast in the morning - Not much character (something I'd hoped for in a town like Rothenburg), just a place to stay. The room was just...

I have now stayed at Pension Elke twice on two different trips, and I cannot recommend it more highly. Klaus is incredibly friendly! We stayed over Christmas and he even gave us a Christmas present of chocolate, fruit, and a Germany calendar! It's in a fantastic location, and within the old town walls. Parking is easy, as is the walk...
