Very good 8.0
At our arrival we felt welcomed The central location was a bonus. After enjoying ourselves in the city and at the Christmas Markets we had an excellent dinner at the Gusthof restaurant to celebrate the end of our holiday. Then there was a train strike which could have left us stranded and missing an important family event in Australia. Our hosts organised an urgent taxi to Nurnberg at a silly hour of the morning to save the day. We were glad that we were not put off by some grumpy feedback on the site, and have only a positive experience to report. Our only further wish would be a lift to assist with baggage transport to the upper floor. I have back and knee problems and had failed to heed a suggestion to request a lower floor at booking.

Wonderful stay!
Wonderful stay! Good breakfast and staff tried to help. However a communication issue resulted in us walking 6 blocks in the cold to find a laundromat. When we arrived we were at a dry cleaners. We walked back and explained the problem. The hotel was so nice they washed our clothes for us! That was excellent customer service. The only bad thing was uncomfortable headboard. I tried to sit in bed and read and was unable to. The headboard was wood and totally uncomfortable. However the heated floors in the bathroom were wonderful! We will stay here again when we comeback to Rothenburg next year, Thank you Hotel Sonne!
