Six rooms in a 650-year-old house on a quiet back street pack in about as much charm and comfort for your money as you are going to find in Rothenburg, with their heavy beams, polished armoires, oil paintings, and spruce bathrooms with deep tubs. A generous breakfast next to a blue ceramic stove nicely starts off a stay. For other meals step into the weinstub (wine tavern) downstairs, where Franconian specialties are served next to an open fire in winter and on a romantic terrace in the summer. If you’re feeling homesick, stick around on a Wednesday evening when the local English club meets at the hotel.
