“Good, Basic Hotel with Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

The Ibis Hauptbahnhof is one of two Ibis hotels within a stone's throw of each other and the Nurnberg rail station and old walled city. It's a typical, very basic Ibis that has recently been completely remodeled. It's just across the street from the old city and within easy walking distance of most Nurnberg attractions, although the Palace of Justice is over a mile away.

Rooms are very small and spartan, although the bed is comfortable and, unusually in Europe, an extra pillow is provided. The bathroom is tiny, and only one bath towel per person is provided - no washcloth or hand towel. The floors are laminated, so can be a bit chilly in the morning. There is a small wardrobe area and ample room for two large suitcases. Satellite TV has a couple of English channels. Americans used to an American-standard economy motel will be surprised by the very spartan nature of this hotel, but it's perfectly adequate and comfortable for a short stay.

The breakfast (extra charge) is extensive, but well presented and good. Wifi is free in the lobby, and there is a shared computer terminal that can be used, if available. Wifi in the rooms is charged at 3 euro per day, and parking in the underground ramp is 8 euro per day. The lobby is very fresh and contemporary.

The price is right for this hotel and it's adequate, if spartan, and well-located.

This hotel is conveniently located near the hauptbahnhof. It was possible to check in at 10.30 AM. Our room was adapted for wheelchair users and was very spacious for an IBIS hotel. The hotel is renovated a couple months ago so everything is new and modern. The room was very clean and the staff were helpfull and pleasant.

WIFI in the room was working well! We used the hotel for visiting the DB Bahn museum and Playmobil fun park in Zirndorf.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We have spent 2 nights in this hotel which has a very good location - just a few steps away from the central main railway station which has a direct connection to the airport. The accommodation is also just a few steps away from the historical city. The hotel itself is just renovated therefore everything is new, clean and comfortable.

The only problem we experienced is with the IT facilities: the WiFi is extremely expensive. 60 mins costs almost our monthly Internet subscription at home. There is one computer in the lobby which provides free use of internet but just for surfing. We tried to print our railway ticket and boarding pass but the computer did not supported any file formats. No doc, no pdf at all. There is a printer next to the computer but you can not print anything. If we had been in hurry we would have been a great trouble. The lady in the front office was very kind but could not help. Thus, we suggest to check in on your mobile and buy train ticket on the spot.

The hotel is located just outside the entrance of Nuremberg's railway-station. It's a solid three-star venue, staffed with competent and friendly people. I'd recommend it to everyone seeking a conveniently located lodging within the historical center of Nuremberg. There are lot's of restaurants withing walking range, an Irish Pub just outside the door, and the Nuremberg Castle is in easy walking range (i.e.: less than 20 minutes) too.

We stayed here for 1 night, the hotel was clean and quiet. The location is great very near the main railway station come out of the station and go right and cross the roads. The breakfast was good, and its a short walk to the town centre. The free wifi is only in the lobby area if you want wifi in the room there's a charge. I tried to use it in the lobby but could not get on to the network when asked I was told that the whole system for Germany was down, which I didn't quite believe but perhaps it was a language barrier? I don't speak German and the staff do speak English but limited. Or it's a way of getting you to pay for the service, I don't know for a fact. All the same the hotel was fine, rooms are small but for 1 night it's perfectly adequate.
