It was the best hotel on our trip through Germany (from Berlin to Munich). The staff, rooms plus facilities, breakfast, and general appearance of the place and its situation make us want to go back many times more.

Excellent family run hotel within walking distance of all of Nuremberg's city centre attractions and amenities, and with several good restaurants just yards from the door. [Trip Advisor is needy so this fills up the extra words they want.]

We found this little spot in a tourist book. At first we thought the GPS was wrong because it seemed we were turning into someones lane, but no, it was the entrance to old Nuremberg and it was fantastic! All cobblestone, small narrow streets and a large wall all around it. The hotel is very small, quaint and has been... More

I'm so glad that I've chosen the customized, charming little Hotel Elch instead of some boring international franchises. Location couldn't be better. Small but cozy room. Staff are friendly in a properly distanced, but problem solving attitude. One big plus is the hearty breakfast. I know those huge wooden tables are a little bit too "True German". But the atmosphere... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights in Nuremberg to visit the Christkindlmarkt. We chose Hotel Elch based upon its location and the history of the building/hotel itself! The hotel is perfectly situated 5 minute walk from the markets, the Kaiserburg, Albrecht Durer's house and other sites. There is no lift so if that bothers you, then its not the... More

My teenage daughter and I travelled to Nuremberg to visit the Christkindlmarkt. We really enjoyed our one-night stay at Hotel Elch. Firstly, the hotel let us check in early, particularly as my daughter wasn't feeling very well. Secondly, the staff were extremely friendly and even more so when heard an English woman speaking German! The hotel is ideally located within... More

Our first night on our "Christmas Market" tour of Germany and Austria was spent at the Elch Hotel inside the old, walled city. We walked everywhere from there, except for the Nazi Documentation Center, which was a short tram ride away. Our room was on the highest floor, and there was no elevator, in preserving the historical nature of the... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Elch on the basis of other Trip Advisor reviewers and we were pleased. It is a small older place with the atmosphere we sought, historic Germany. Our room was big enough to move around easily, had everything we needed, and a modern bathroom - though small it had enough shelves for our things.... More

We stayed here (family of 5) for one night in September. The hotel is great, right in the middle if the old town and a few minutes walk to the castle. The girl working the front desk was awesome, extremely helpful. Good breakfast and quest street.
