Well located and inexpensive relative to others in the area, but the room was cramped, dark and had strange angles. The ensuite bathroom was perched on a landing that opened directly onto a step---an accident waiting to happen in the middle of the night--obviously the result of a renovation that tried to maximize use of every square inch--but it's not...

A regular visitor to the Elch over several years; the refit and expansion are up to usual excellent standards. 200 characters? Don't see the point - there's nothing to add, so I'll waffle on through 200!

My husband stayed for one night at Hotel Elch History. Room was clean with purple theme. You can walk to the hotel from the train station. The hotel is strategically located in the Old Town so you can walk just straight to the Cathedral and the castle. We got a good price of 70 euro including breakfast for two. Breakfast... More

Good location, very good front desk clerks, in particular Cassy was very helpful. Nuremberg is an expensive city so the rate we got for this hotel seemed ok. Room 26, was large with 3 windows to allow us to create a cross draft. Breakfast was I think the weak point, but it was ok. You may save yourself a few... More

This is a beautiful hotel, near most of the interesting sites. The staff was wonderful. The wifi was difficult to deal with and there was no lift. However, the staff did help us with luggage. Breakfast was good

location location location.... We got it right by choosing this hotel. We chose the breakfast option, which I always do for convenience.... Good choice. Breakfast was good, nice spread. The staff were friendly, especially the receptionist- she was delightful, friendly and always had a smile on her face. The hotel was clean and the rooms with ample space were very... More

Very clean and comfortable hotel. The idling was constructed more than 700 years ago, but fortunately, the rooms would convince you the hotel was much newer. Nice staff, good breakfast. Stairways a bit tricky top navigate, but there is an elevator, if you refer.

After reading the reviews on this hotel we decided to stay here over Christmas 2014 as the reviews led us to believe that it was family run and friendly which is just what we were after whilst away from home at Christmas and on our honeymoon. Unfortunately we found that the staff were so unfriendly and rude that we felt... More

We have stayed in Nuremberg many times before but this is the first time we have stayed at Hotel Elch. The hotel staff were very friendly and the lovely warm gluwein was a very nice welcoming gesture when you have been out in the cold. The position of the hotel to town and the churches, castle etc was also excellent.We... More
