I was attending the Chillventa exhibition at the Nuremberg Messe in October 2012. I stayed here for the best part of a week from Monday to Thursday. I like this hotel, it was my second stay here and just like before it provided all my needs.
Access is very good. A direct train went straight from the airport to Plaerrer station on the underground (15 minutes) which comes out only 150 metres from the hotel (if you can find the correct exit). Then it's the same underground station to / from the exhibition centre (Messe) which is also about 15 minutes journey. No hassle.
You are just outside the old city wall so you can walk straight into the old town (Altestadt) which is mostly pedestrianised with a good selection of bars and restaurants, all within walking distance. However, beware the fantastic choice of shops, you could spend a fortune, I've never seen so many shops in such a small area, and all quality shops at that !!
Although the hotel rooms are a little on the basic basic side (it's an Ibis already), they are spotlessly clean, and you have all you need for a perfectly comfortable stay. I was on the fourth floor and my room was nice and quiet. There is a bar and a small restaurant downstairs, so if you don't want to go out, no problem, you can eat in as I did on the first night and have a quiet drink before turning in for the night. The foods not bad either
Breakfast is the usual continental affair but fine to fuel up on.
Nuremberg is a lovely place for a city break as well as a business trip so I plan to take my wife there soon, and I'd be just as happy to stay at this hotel for that trip as well. The only slight downside is the flight connection. The only direct flight to Nuremberg as far as I am aware is Air Berlin from Gatwick.
The staff are very pleasant and helpful too, so if you are looking for a mid range hotel that is clean, comfortable, conveniently located and reasonably priced then I'd have no problem recommending it.
