- This hotel has a very friendly and helpful owner. - Great location, close to the shopping centre, old town, and the main station. All within walking distance. - Parking garage just across the street. - Rooms are well isolated, we didn't hear noise from other guests or outside. There is enough space in the room, altough the bathroom is... More

We wanted something affordable within the walls that was close to the hauptbahnhof and this fit. Easy walk from train while being charming and not a big chain hotel. Everything was very clean. Never heard another guest the entire time we were there except when we came down for breakfast. The bathrooms are tiny but like I said - clean.... More

We stayed in Nürnberg for just one night and chose Franconia because of the good reviews it had gotten. All our expectations were met! Great location and parking garage just across the street. Clean, nicely decorated room with comfortable beds. Very nice breakfast! And a charming hotel owner(?) who made us feel welcome and helped with everything. Only small cons,... More

On arrival Kirsten very helpfully gave us a map and suggested a route to see the main sights around the old city, also two interesting books about Nuremberg. The room was spacious with two comfortable chairs and ball shaped footstools, very welcome after a day walking around the old town. Clean and comfortable bed, w.c. and shower. Shopping area is...

Easy walk from the train station, very near a subway stop, shopping galore, walk to all of the historic sites inside the old city walls and good restaurant choices close by. The hotel is very quiet, clean, roomy with plenty of hot water, great beds, warm comforters and great wifi. The only thing missing was hot water kettle in the... More

While checking for a hotel near the Nuremberg Christmas markets, my wife found a listing for the Franconia City Hotel in old town / Altstadt, about a 15 minute walk from the markets and just a couple blocks from the U-bahn station (Weiss Turm stop). Trip Advisor reviews gave it a favorable mention, and the price was quite reasonable for... More

It worths every penny we spent for this hotel. The room is so clean, I mean really clean.. (the bed sheet and towel are like new). The sleeping area is spacey.. With a large and firm bed to give you endless sleep after long and exhausting day, sofas are available for hang out and watch TV, and a separate changing... More
