“sleep there and do not come back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2008

During the Toy Fair I needed a room for 1 night. That was not easy. But this hotel had a room. For 220 euro I got a very small, completely out of date room with a single bed of 90 cm width, too soft, sagged and at least 15 years old. The furnishings were poor, old and the room was smelly. The windows draughty.
The little tiny bathroom was renovated and clean. The whole hotel looks like a patch-work blanket with all kind of out dated furnitures and carpets. The breakfast was OK but messy ( ok it was very busy but there was plenty of staff walking around). The location of the hotel is very convenient (centre and behind the central station). But I will never ever recommand this hotel to anyone. The staff is friendly but it is a very poor place to stay.

Lieber Gast,

Ihre Reiseeindrücke liegen nun über sechs Jahre zurück. Besuchen Sie doch Nürnberg wieder und lassen Sie sich überraschen, wie viel sich - auch in unserem Hause - seit Ihrem letzten Aufenthalt positiv verändert hat.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2006

For the price, this hotel isn't worth it. Some rooms are very small and quiet. Others are newer, larger, and face the hauptbahnhof across the way. No A/C in either of the rooms I had, and having windows open across the street from the train station wasn't great.
Hallways and stairs were narrow - like an English hotel. Breakfast was included in my rate, and was good, but didn't change from day to day. Get there early or selection runs out!
The bar was tiny, and not useful for entertaining. TV in the bar was useless. Staff was pleasant and very accomodating, despite the crowds there for the World Cup.
