“A Pearl in Old Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

What a pearl this small but efficient hotel is.

Not two blocks off the center square of the old town, you would think you had stepped into the history of Germany itself.

Down a quiet walkway with small shops and residences, this quiet hotel is just the right place to be. An easy walk to the underground U1 line and just one stop from the central station.

Shopping and restaurant's are everywhere and the history of this wonderful German town runs deep.

What a wonderful place to stay when you are here for business or pleasure.

Room Tip: Try for a room on the upper floors for the best view of the area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We stayed for one night prior to our Viking River Cruise. It was 20 euro from the airport. The room was clean and in good condition, the bed was comfortable. We had lots of hot water and the towels were heated. For 7 euros each, we had a large breakfast the next morning. After we checked out of our room, we checked our baggage. We are in the midst of the old town and it was lovely to be able to walk all around and see the buildings and do a little shopping. The cab to our Viking longship was 18.50 euros. Well worth being able to stay in the old center.

Room Tip: Room 110 was over the street and a bit noisy for a while, but not after we went to bed. Having been...

I am loathed to tell everyone how great this hotel is, as both my wife and I consider it Nuremberg's, and of course our, best kept secret!
This is not 5 star uber modern with all the bells and whistles, nor does it pretend to be.
The Agneshof is a great 3-4 star hotel in a great part of the old town,in a safe welcoming and residential area.
We walked around the area at all times of the day and night and only encountered friendly locals.
The staff were very helpful, all spoke excellent English and made some great recommendations for local places to eat.
Everything you want is on your doorstep and a 10-12 minute walk to the centre of Nuremberg.
A charming, clean and well run hotel and the only place i would stay when in Nuremberg.
Book with no hesitation, this place will not disappoint!
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An ideal touristic location in the Altstadt, the Old City, impeccable, simple but well-appointed rooms at a reasonable rate are certainly enough reasons to come back to the Hotel Agneshof Nürnberg. Yes, breakfast was fresh, delicious, and copious and the street was quiet. The chief reason I will look no further in future visits: its welcoming, knowledgeable, and genuinely caring staff. The front desk staff are true concierges who speak perfect English but were willing to help me speak the little German I know. They helped find everything I needed in the beautiful city of Nürnberg. I have nothing less than praise to report.

Simple, small, yet efficient room in a great location within the city walls. Could walk all over in the city walls and also walked to a really cool cemetary outside of the walls. VERY EASY to take the bus to the Documentation Center which was the only thing we needed a bus for during our 2 night stay. Could have even spent another day. This hotel, in my opinion, is located in the nicer part of the walled city. Very close to the castle which was very cool. At night this area seemed quieter but you could safely walk to check out the more rowdy part of the walled city. This was our first 2 days in Germany andt we loved it! Glad we did it first in our trip. Not sure we would have appreciated it as much later in the trip.

Room Tip: No A/C but windows everywhere in Germany opened wide. A little warm but not bad at the beginning of...

Hello Patty P, we are happy to hear that your two night stay was a great experience, especially since it was your first trip to Germany. And we are glad that the convenience of location was to your like and even though we were not able to accommodate you with an air conditioning in the room you enjoyed your stay. But if the temperature is uncommonly warm we can offer fans. We hope that in the future we will get another chance to welcome you back. Sincerely, your Agenshof Nuremberg · Partner of SORAT Hotels

The location is excellent. The rooms are clean and comfortable (quite nice for a 3 star hotel) and very good value for money. The bar area was good and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel does not have air conditioning, but this would only be an issue on very hot days.

Enjoyed a couple of nights here and was impressed with property, service and ambiance. Glad, asalwas, that everyone spoke better English than my German. Helpful with directions and got us a cabin less than 2 minutes.
Close to the castle in the northeast end of the old city yet easy walking distance to other sites.
