The hotel's magical atmosphere, combined with modern amenities, ensures a comfortable stay in its spacious and well-maintained rooms.

Though it looked as ancient as all other surrounding buildings, the room is perfectly furnished and is very big in size . We took the deluxe double room . The location is perfect though we acknowledged that the town is small. The reception service is excellent. Check in was a breeze. Only issue is the car is parked 100m away from hotel. They made it very convenient with a Turkish conceige to follow you in buggy to your Carpark and then fetch us back to hotel. Seamless. Perfect, strongly encourage stay in this hotel. There is lift to carry our big luggages up to room too.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable trip. The parking was of great value and convenient. We enjoyed an early dinner at the restaurant prior to the short walk to the town center for the night watchman's tour. The updated rooms were clean and comfortable in the quiet center of town. We awoke refreshed, had a nice breakfast, and continued exploring the city and views prior to departing. They have a luggage room you can use to help with further exploring - we checked out early then picked up our stuff when it was time to collect our car. The people and service were great and we'd highly recommend this place for an easy and enjoyable stay in the city center.

Long story short we loved this hotel, and I'll tell you why!

We were traveling as a couple + a friend and had booked a room with a double and a single bed. The room turned out to be absolutely perfect for us. The double bedroom was very large, and there was a separate door to the bedroom and bathroom, allowing access for everyone.
The single bed was in the huge living room. This could be a problem if the single person is looking to rest while others are in the living room, but it worked well for us.

We booked a dinner reservation when we checked in, I think we were lucky to get a table because the restaurant is one of the most popular in town. I should have booked a table before arriving and you should do the same.
It was obvious that we were the only English speaking people in the restaurant and our waiter could not have been friendlier or more welcoming. The table next to us even helped us when they heard us attempting to order in German. Top the meal off with a local pear schnapps, the experience is worth it!

We booked a parking spot, and you're able to arrive at 13:00 for parking, even though check in is later. You're also allowed to park your car until 13:00 the next day (checkout is at 11:00). This is a great bonus because parking in town is very hard to come by. Driving through town is a bit of a challenge, especially if you're unfamiliar with your rental car so put your best driver in for this one.

Thank you for a wunderbar first night in Germany.

I arrived at this hotel at around 11 am. Immediately the front desk woman told me I was earlier and the check in was at the universal hour of 3 pm. I never heard that was a universal hour, because most hotels allow you to check in at 2 pm. I had prepaid for parking as well but she told me the parking was not available until 3 pm either so she told me to go find a public parking lot on the outskirts of town. Just as I was leaving I guess she felt bad and told me she will call her colleague and tell me to guide me to the parking garage. When I got there, it was empty and there was space for two cars. I came back around 1: 45 pm just in case the room was ready but it was not, she told me I had to wait until three pm. She gave us a boucher for a drink at the restaurant. We went to the restaurant and a young waiter asked if we want to eat, we said no just a drink. He gave us a table and we ordered two beers. Five minutes later an older waiter came and asked if we wanted the menu, we explained we were only there for drinks and he immediately got very upset and said we can not seat there if we are not eating. At this point I was irritated as well and told him we asked one of the waiters before we sat down and he gave us the table so we were not leaving. I told him we were guests of the hotel and still he was upset and said we should not be there. We ignored him and finished our drink. At 3 pm we got our room, which was ok, nothing fantastic but ok. We pay extra for a suite and it was large and comfortable. After the nasty waiter experience we decided not to have dinner at the hotel and we went to eat at another nice place nearby. At breakfast the following morning when my partner went to pick up food from the buffet, the same woman who was at the front desk the day before was yelling at him in German. When I asked what happened my partner said she thought he was just taking food without having a table yet. The people at this hotel need a course in how to treat customers. They are very very rude and have no manners. They feel like they are doing you a favor by allowing you to stay there or to eat there. Customer service does not exists here. I will not recommend this place. There are lots of hotel choices in town, so stay some place were people are friendly and actually make you feel welcomed.

This hotel was very well located for enjoying all that Rothenburg has to offer. We had reserved a parking space in advance, which is required, and it was located a few blocks from the hotel in a gated lot. We had booked a suite with air conditioning, and we were very glad we did due to the heat. We had to pay an additional five Euros and sign a request for it to be turned on which was a bit unusual, but it worked very well and cooled the room off nicely. Dinner in the restaurant was very good. We enjoyed our stay here.

Amazing location, can walk to everything. Delicious breakfast with lots of options. Friendly restaurant staff, ok front desk staff. Expensive parking, sub par bed & missing tea/coffee in the room. They charge €1.80 every time I asked for hot water which was ludicrous.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Our room was a suite which was spacious, clean and had an attractive view. The air conditioning worked well in this room in comparison to other hotels we stayed at in Europe, we did have to pay extra for it, but it was worth it considering it was very hot while we were in Rothenberg. The breakfast buffet was set up nicely and was good as was dinner. The location of the hotel is also good, we enjoyed roaming around town in the mornings and walking outside the walls of the town into nature. Overall, it was a nice stay.

Ate here twice this week, absolutely beautiful food, reasonably priced and best of all, have gluten-free options for my wife. The waiters are so attentive and friendly, we could not recommend this place enough. Eating inside or out (we did both) lovely, you won’t be disappointed (unless you moan about minor issues) Great place!

This hotel is close to all atractions in Rothenburg OdT. The room was very confortable and the hotel restaurant is a must go. We spent 2 nights there and everything went well. Breakfast has a lot of varieties for everyone's taste. They provide a room service. Just choose something in the restaurant menu and they will take it to your room for a 5 euros service fee. In the last day we had a problem with the absence of taxi to take us to the rail station, but the manager himself, Mr. Christoffer, gave us a ride to the station, so we could take our train on time. We strongly recommend this hotel as the better option in Tothenburg OdT.

The Reichskuenmaister Hotel is a jewel case where we enjoyed the warmth of the welcome, the comfort of the room, great food in a stunning environment. I highly recommend the terrace for a lunch or dinner. Their German specialties (food and drinks) are delicious.
