Hotel Spitzweg
Ranked #8 of 45 Hotels in Rothenburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 December 2017

Our hotel was built in 1536, so was almost 500 years old. The inn was decorated for Christmas, with a huge glockenspiel in the lobby. Attention was paid to detail. This continued up the stairs and in the rooms. Our furniture reminded me of gingerbread, a lovely shade of green, with hand painted flowers, on the headboard, chairs, bureau and closet. Timber beams were visible along the ceiling. The pillow was large, the duvet fluffy and warm.We felt pampered.

The bathroom was modern and quite large. The shower had good pressure with plenty of hot water.

Our breakfast was substantial. A plate of meat and cheese was brought to the table, but there was also more food at the buffet. So much variety! A real spread!

The hotel was within the walls of the Old town, so everything was close to walk to.

We definitely enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Spitzweg!

Room Tip: There are stairs, no lift, so you might want a room on the second floor rather than the third. Ther...

Stayed at the Hotel Spitzweg for a couple of nights. Of course Rotherburg is a wonderful community and the hotel was an excellent experience too. Delightful building and decorated for the holidays. They made me feel welcome from arrival to departure, including at breakfast offering to handle any need. I was also greeted each time I was spotted by whom I assume is the patriarch of the family and they even made sure I was well taken care of for my trip home. I would certainly choose to stay there again.

Our room was perfect. While it had all the comfort and amenities (hot shower, clean bathroom), it also had a great traditional feel and charm. The hosts were outstanding, informational, personable! The hotel and lobby are filled with antique pieces that easily come with a great story to be shared. We highly recommend Hotel Spitzweg to anyone visiting this charming town!

Room Tip: Although many guests were checked in, the hotel was quiet all of the time.

We stayed here for a few nights on our recent trip. We had the 2 bedroom family suite and it was perfect for us. The beds were comfortable, the room spacious, the bathroom had plenty of towels and a nice towel warmer rack, and good water pressure. Although the hotel does not have wifi, we were able to get the cities free wifi most of the time in the room.

The owner is a delight! He truly cares that your stay is excellent. We loved chatting with him every day, and his breakfasts were fantastic! On our last morning, we had to leave before the usual breakfast time, but he insisted on making us a proper breakfast that morning so did it earlier than usual. He did that for other guests as well.

The location of the hotel is great. It is within the wall, but away from the main square just a short walk. It is a short walk to the train station as well.

Room Tip: There is no lift, so be sure you are ok with stairs.

We knew we were going to love this place when we pulled the old fashion bell to announce ourselves and we met the proprietor who was so friendly and helpful. The location was perfect inside the walled city and a few steps from the main streets. As soon as we walked in I said "Oh, I'm going to have to take a lot of pictures of this!". Perfect Bavarian inn and décor. See pictures. I looked at several places on line but I'm glad I picked this one and would give it an A+. We were especially pleased with the free parking located on the property. We drove through the big doors and there was the contained lot, just steps away from the hotel.

Room Tip: We had a small room in the attic but enjoyed it. The bathroom was big and the touch lamps on the bed...
