It was a couple of hours away from Frankfurt, so we were ready to park the car on the property and take in the quaint town a stone's throw away from the inn. Our room was the largest of our entire trip! And it was a room for four of us--two parents, two adult children--still quite spacious. None of the... More

This is the Hotel Rappen restaurant. While I thought the service here was fine, the food I felt was just average. I hate to put it down because I know they take great pride in what they do but I found other restaurants in the city which I preferred more. Quite a few restaurants in the city offer slightly different... More

Part of our hotel, this was so convenient and not very crowded. Service and food were both good. Prices were average.

I stopped for dinner in Rothenburg during a 12-hour drive on the Autobahn, ran a quick survey of the easily available eateries in the historic city centre and decided to try my luck at the Rappen (Black Horse) - good choice! The place is just off a busy thorough-fare but you wouldn't notice if you didn't know already. Sitting out... More

The wife and I took a weekend get away and found this place while walking around Rothenburg odt. The staff was very accommodating and tolerant of our broken German first. With that said the outside biergarten was very nice with blossoms falling as we enjoyed a Tucher "dunkel". All in all it was a good lunch and great location just... More

Save for the little bathroom, where a heavy person would not be able to stand to have a shower, the room we had was good. The best : its breakfast, with all coldcuts, cakes, bread and fruit --delicious!

We reserved to Rappen Restaurant for the New Year's Dinner with our 2.5 years old children. During the reservation process, we corresponded many times with them. Every time they replied with patience to our detailed questions and informed us very well. At the dinner we had a very good meal and we were completely satisfied with the service and the... More

Welcoming staff and a Nice hotel room is always a good start when visiting a hotel. The Rappen hotel offers a good sleep in a clean comfortable room and serves good breakfast.

Don't eat the pancake soup. Disappointed with the Wiener schnitzel which came with the usual boring French fries. Nothing special

Ate here a couple of times. Good food at reasonable prices and a fair choice. A nice biergarten and good service.
