“Avenue Hotel, pleasant surprise...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

I was worried as I read some not so great reviews on Trip Avisor, but was pleasantly surprised by finding just the opposite. Even the photos the hotel shows of their rooms and restaurant space seem less than lovely, but again, it's just the opposite. You can't beat the location for the Christmas Market and exploring the Old Town. It's on a great street, with a Starbucks, train station, and expensive shops like Hermes, and it's budget friendly. The staff are all wonderful and ready to help in any way. We arrived and needed extra blankets, a hair dryer, even a room change, and they helped us right away. The breakfast was well diverse and filling, and the rooms and public areas were clean and comfortable. It's not a luxury hotel, but it was a nice place to stay. I would return there.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room over the street, but hear that one over the courtyard is quieter. Although we d...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

The Avenue Hotel is right in the heart of Nürnberg, making shopping and touring of the old city just steps from the door. It's about a ten or fifteen minute walk from the train station. Rooms are not flashy-new, but well maintained and perfectly clean. It seems that things were redecorated about twenty years ago, but I really liked the family-owned homey touch. The staff is very friendly, appearing that they can help you with any questions of the area. The sky-lighted open breakfast room is quite comfortable including a complete full breakfast and excellent coffee. My only problem was the WiFi. Although I wasn't able to get connected in my room, there is plenty of common space in the lobby/bar/dining room/conference room where connections are easy--it moves very slowly though. I chose this hotel because although the prices seem steep to me, they were the most reasonable prices I could find in the city. Location was key. I deffinately can recommend this hotel.

Ideal for a short visit to a fascinating city, because the Avenue is the most reasonably priced hotel within walking distance of all the sights. Rooms are spacious, fresh and clean, and staff are helpful. Nearby multi-storey parking additional but secure. Don't be put off by the approach down a long corridor - it's much nicer inside.

I stayed there while visiting BioFach 2012 (Trade Fair) and I'm very happy about it. I went alone and had a nice room, it was confortable, spacious and very quiet. The staff was friendly at all time, breakfast was good and it had a lot of choices to eat and cleanliness was mostly good. The metro station is really close (2-minute walk) and everything around is save. There's a Starbucks in front of the hotel and Central Station is two stations away.

Something I liked is that the first day I arrived to the hotel the room carpet was not vaccumed, but it was late and I wanted to sleep so I complained next day and They took care about it and they asked me if everything was ok. I felt really good!

Something I didn't like is that next to the hotel entrance there is an entrance for an underground night club. Even thouhg I never saw any drunk or weird people, it doesn't look good.

Room Tip: I like single room 401. Room and bathroom were spacious. It felt really quiet, no noise from outside...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

I stayed here with two business colleagues in December; we needed to find a hotel with a central location with three rooms during the Christmas Market period; this was one of the few with the rooms available at short notice. For the price, the rooms were good value; both wired and wireless internet was available for five Euros. My room faced onto the street at the back of the hotel and was quiet. The entrance to the hotel is uninspiring; a long corridor past the entrance to a basement night-club; however there was no noise. Judging from the decor (there was a Corby trouser press on the wall with a promotional leaflet advertising prices in Deutschmarks!) the hotel had been refurbished circa 1988 and the rooms, though clean, reflected this. There is a buffet breakfast from 06:30am which was ample, and the staff were friendly and helpful. A small bar area is off the side of the dining area; the staff were happy to open this up for us to have a few beers.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel; mine was quiet.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2007

We had 5 nights at the Hotel Avenue. It's in a fantastic location in old Nuremberg, within an easy walk to all the terrific sights and cafes, restaurants, shops and market. The entrance, next to a seedy looking night club, is off-putting and depressing, but the hotel staff were cheery, welcoming and helpful. All the reception staff we encountered spoke pretty good English (certainly better than we spoke German!).

Our room faced an inner courtyard, and was reasonably quiet (the staff said that the ones facing the street are noisier). We requested a non-smoking room, which was a joke. The room had an ashtray and matches, so obviously catered for smokers, and guests were certainly smoking in nearby rooms. There was no non-smoking floor, so we could smell cigarette smoke most of the time in our room, and even more so in the corridor.

Our double room was OK, clean and a reasonable size, but with a small and very basic bathroom (but also clean).

Overall the fittings and fixtures were poorer standard than we had encountered in other three star hotels in Germany, and compared to these other three star places, the hotel is overpriced, even allowing that breakfast was included in the price.
