A beautiful hotel. Old world charm and a great restaurant. Our room looked out over the street. The staff was very friendly and had our luggage brought to our room, two flights up. The Christmas Market was just 2 blocks away down a quaint cobblestone street.

Historical Traveler Reviews Romantik Hotel Markusturm Rothenburg ob der Tauber
Exceptional Service and Dining
The hotel is in the walled part of Rothenburg, centrally located. The staff was incredible. They spoke English and were very accommodating. They showed us three available rooms, all were very spacious and immaculate, each with different decor. The bathrooms were large, with tubs and hairdryers. The rooms all had sitting areas and were more the size of a suite in the US. The restaurant was exceptionally and returning tourists we met were making reservations to dine there, stating it was the best. It was more gourmet-German than traditional German food. There is a computer in the second floor with printer free of charge for guest use. The staff was so helpful with regard to train or rental car for the rest of our trip. They booked us a car from avis, had it delivered to the hotel and it was the same price as those I had checked on the internet.
Romantik, Historical, Nightwatchman, Torture
This hotel was adorable aesthetically. I stayed in the precious rose room in the back with a lovely bathrroom. The only issue was the noise. When my windows were opened during the night-- it was July-- I could hear people in the apartments above. Otherwise, the location was superb and the staff was great. As of service, one could not get better. The breakfast was quite nice and certainly filling (some meats, some cheeses, a variety of bread and eggs if so desired), but not the best in Europe. Additionally, the price was high compared to other places in the village, which is extremely affordable-- this seems to be one of the more expensive places. If you want hotel service, not gasthof service, it is great.
The village is wonderful and the history (from a professor's point of view) enlightening. Most Americans visit for an afternoon, but I recommend at least one night-- two was great for comfortably perusing, shopping and some relaxing. This is a "must see" destination for singles, couples and families. The night watchman tour is an absolute must (if not just for the puns!), as is the Criminal and Torture Museum. It was a memorable weekend trip!
My husband, 4 month old daughter and I enjoyed a few nights at this darling hotel. It is centrally located for access to the town. Our room was very quiet and cozy, with a gorgeous canopy bed. We were happy to find that dinner was extraordinary as was the service of the hotel in general. We will look forward to staying there again someday!
Enjoyable Stay - Good to Knows...
I just spent two nights at the Romantik. I would highly recommend this hotel for the following reasons (in no particular order) 1. Very, very centrally located. This hotel is within a couple of minutes walk to the market place and other sights. 2. Free parking, you will not need your car while in the city. Also, we noticed some vandalism to the few cars that were parked in the street. The Romantik's parking lot is private and we had no problems with our car being there. 3. Charming and clean rooms. The rooms are all unique. I would caution to get a room away from the main street as it can be loud with traffic and people with the windows open. 4. Hospitable staff. The staff was exceedingly helpful and extremely courteous. They made us feel very welcome and even suggested different sights that would be of interest.
Great place to stay
We stayed in this charming Hotel which belongs to the Romantic Group of Hotels during summer. Very convenient situated, not far to walk to the market square. The rooms are cosy and all have a different look. Very friendly staff. The only negative is breakfast. The owners should keep an eye on some things as: the tables are not cleaned up for a long time after guests have left the table. And the tea boxes deeply need to be replenished, they look very much worn out, and that makes the "presentation" not very nice! Beside these "side effects" I can recommend the Hotel very much.
Period hotel, with lots of charm.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay (July 2004). We were upgraded to a "mini suite", and given our choice of rooms which were available. The staff (this is a family run hotel) was terrific. We also enjoyed our dinner and breakfast.
One of my all time favorites
This is one of my favorite places to stay. The hotel is delightful, however it is showing a few signs of wear in the common areas. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. Staff is very kind. Breakfast offered with room is excellent. I would recommend this hotel highly and I'm not easy to please!
Lovely hotel in old city
The Romantik Hotel Markusturm is a charming small hotel within the walled city of Rothenburg. It is conveniently located about two blocks from the center of the old town, and offered valet parking in a nearby lot. We visited in April, before the busy tourist season, and they upgraded our three standard rooms to larger rooms. All were nicely decorated and extremely clean. Breakfast in their small dining room was generous and delicious. Although we had made the reservation using our AMEX, they did not want to accept this card at checkout. We are ex-pats living in Germany, and Rothenburg is an interesting place to take guests, especially if you can arrive in the afternoon, spend a night, and leave midday before the tour buses arrive! I would stay in this hotel again.
Delightful choice to stay.
Loved the feeling that you were in an ancient home and felt comfortable all the time. So close to the square and so central. Would gladly recommend it. Not cheap, but didn't resent the cost because it was nice.
Convenient location, homey ambiance and good value in this touristy yet charming medieval town. Room 122 was very nice with gleaming, new bathroom. Try the wine soup. Friendly owners speak good English.
Internet access available, breakfast included.

There's an nice breakfast waiting for us in the dining room of the hotel. I prepaid the €6 each and it was well worth it. Just not having to run around looking for a place to eat is the best. We're already packed and ready to go. We clear up our bill while they call a taxi and we head to the HBF, about 7 or 8 minutes away. Yep, another € …

In the 13C, local bishops were given the status of 'Price-Bishops'by the ruling emporer. This made them not only a religious ruler but they also became head of the secular society and ...
... we walked back to eat a local style of pizza called a Rahmfleckerl (cream patch), which was like a thick based Flammkuchen. It didn't taste bad and we washed it down with some more Glühwein! Now it was time to visit the Residenz, but when we got there at 4pm, it had already closed for the day. That's a pity because it is supposed to be really pretty inside. I guess we will have to come back again sometime!
This morning after eating breakfast and packing up we grabbed some tea & croissants from the local bakery and drove to Wurzburg.
We drove around the town then walked through the Christmas markets. It was a nice town. We ate lunch at a cafe and then jumped back in the car to keep discovering the Romantic Road.
The drive through the country side was beautiful and the towns we passed through were all so lovely.
