“Tiny but comfortable rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Our room was quite small but we had enought place to stay. In my opinion this hotel is the best for city travelers who need a comfortable place to sleep and rest. The hotel is located near the railway station and tracks but our room was quiet.
Unfortunatelly the air condition at our bathroom worked badly and the bathroom was full of water and steam.
The hotel offers free WiFi. Breakfast was very good.

The hotel is a perfect choice to stay and get around the city. Room is nice and comfy. Very close to train station and the city. Anyway if you get used to sleeping quietly, you might need ear-plugs to avoid noise of road and train.

We had a brief stay in Nuernberg in June, 2014 and decided on a hotel that would be convenient to the old town. We found Motel One that included parking for €5/night and a complimentary breakfast. It was a bit tricky to navigate from the GPS directions because of a great deal of construction in the area - 2 new motels. Motel One is very near the train station and about a 10 minute walk to the heart of the city.

The reception area is distinguished by the bright turquoise and very modern. There is a small bar adjacent to the area and also the breakfast area. We were greeted curteously and in English. Our room was very small even for European standards. We had twin beds that were comfortable. It was hard to maneuver around the beds and there really wasn't a place to put items that were not contained in the suitcase.

It was quite warm and the AC didn't seem to be able to handle cooling off the room. Opening the window was not an option since even with the window closed the traffic noise was quite loud. It was not particularly a restful night.

Breakfast in the morning was a real test of patience. It was crowded and required tricky maneuvering. The cold items were ok and there was a variety of cereal. The hot items a bit less satisfying and of the institutional reheated variety. But it was included and so was sufficient.

All in all, the stay was ordinary, but not extremely comfortable. The convenience and the little time we actually spent in the room balanced the smallness. I would not recommend for more than a night, however.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side of the building.

Second stay at a motel one and have another booked later in the year. Good reliable chain. Small but clean functional rooms. Good bed. Clean smart bathroom with excellent shower. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment on that.
Not much storage space, no drawers just a couple of shelves and two hanging areas. As a tip I would suggest bringing some hangars for your clothes. As only six are provided and no drawers in the room it just helps with storage.
Staff were all excellent, friendly and helpful. Location is ideal for the station which was handy as we had a couple of trips out to rothenburg and bamberg. It is only a few minutes walk to the old town walls and plenty of breakfast stops/bars and restaurants.
The area around the hotel is a bit of a building site at the moment with a Novotel and a holiday express being built. However we had a fifth floor room and the sound proofing of the windows is excellent and we couldn't hear a thing. Air con in the room is also very good.
All in all motel ones are excellent value and we wouldn't hesitate to book one.

I stayed here from June 5 - 10, 2014 and the hotel did not disappoint me. I have stayed at several Motel One's before. They were all good and this one was no exception!
It is in walking distance to the central railway station and also to the lovely city.
The room was fairly sized and very clean. The staff was friendly!
It is located on a busy street, so if you're a light sleeper, you might need some ear plugs. The street "noise" didn't bother me.

This is the perfect place for a business trip or a short break. Nicely designed reception, lobby and bar where you feel like having a nightcap before going to bed. Simple but modern and thought through rooms and a great example how to make a small bathroom amazingly practical and comfortable. Super friendly staff - which struggled a bit during breakfast service - which can get a bit hectic as there is not that much space for the buffet. But all in all great value for money.

The Motel One is a stylish, comfortable Hotel.

Above all, I liked the interior design of the rooms with the typical colours of Motel One and the friendly staff.
The room is rather small but sufficient for a short trip.
One highlight was the rain shower in the bathroom.
Breakfast had good quality and offered fresh products you need for a good start of the day (e.g. orange juice; coffee; rolls; honey; jam; cheese; ham; sausages ).

Even though the hotel only has 2 stars from a formal point of view, I felt more comfortable there than in some 3 oder 4 star hotel.

The train station and the pedestrian zone are within walking distance.

One downfall was the sometimes disgusting smell in the bath room. At check-out I mentioned that.

All in all, I can highly recommend this hotel, especially for a short city trip to medieval Nuremberg.
