As others have noted,close to castle, rooms good, breakfast excellent. We asked for a quiet room, but the traffic noise was such that we had to use earplugs. Also, parking limited and only a few places for larger cars.

There is an old world charm about this hotel. Carpeted ....furnishings ... the brass ...paintings ... The breakfast was more than substantial, and of excellent quality! Service was very helpful. Location can't be better. 15 mins slow walk to the Hauptmarkt Nürnberg. The little downside is parking. If you can find street parking; great. Otherwise when you book, book for... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in May. The location is decent, just outside the main downtown walled Old City area, so it's quieter but still fairly near everything (and across the street from Nuremberg Castle) although maybe slightly further and uphill from the busier south section of town with all the big chain stores. The decor is a bit old-fashioned... More

Booked this hotel after reading all the good reviews and was very satisfied. Central location (just across the road from Nuremburg Castle & the Old Town), clean rooms with convenient amenities and a wonderful generous breakfast spread. The mini bar snacks were super reasonably priced as well. The staff were really efficient and pleasant. Wifi connection was excellent and worked... More

The Burgschmiet is doing a very good job with this property. It appears to be recently renovated with new carpet throughout. Our room was furnished well with a couch and two sitting chairs - enough room for a little entertaining. This is a terrific location for sightseeing, right next to a city gate. The grout could use a good scrubbing,... More

Great location, 5minute walk to the Aldstadt. Good size room and nice bathroom. Nice quiet location, I was awoken by the smell of freshly cooked pikelets...... Breakfast was out of this world. I have never seen such a selection. Traditional eggs and bacon, sausages along with cold meats, cheeses,smoked salmon, piklets, crepes, cakes, pastries. Amazing! Worth it for breakfast alone!...

I stay at the Hotel Burgschmiet fairly regularly and it certainly has lots going for it. The rooms and en suites are spotlessly clean, bright and airy and fairly modern. The beds are comfortable. The mini-bar charges are "normal" prices, i.e. I think a half bottle of wine is about 2.5 Euros for example. The staff are friendly and welcoming.... More

I stayed here every year for Toy Fair for 10 years. SADLY this year I, like many other smaller bookings, were bounced. Hence loss of a star! Hotel is more a Guest House as there is no bar or social amenities/evening meal. Breakfasts are fab and room clean but sparten. Good walking distance to quite a few eateries, wall and... More

If you want to see the historic city of Nurmberg in Germany this is as close as you can get without being within the walls. Just walk up to the next intersection and across the highway. Public transport also on thee main highway. Hotel is very clean and comfortable and for its size it provided an excellent buffet breakfast. Rooms... More

The Hotel Burgschmiet has some of the friendliest staff I have ever encountered. Everyone was delightful, from the friendly, welcoming and informative front desk staff to the always smiling restaurant and housekeeping staff. The breakfast was the best of any hotel on our trip through Europe; with lots of fresh fruit, meats, breads, cereals, egg choices and juices. The hotel... More
