“Four star category? Really?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Best things first: The location is quite good. By tram (2 minutes walk) only two stops to the Main Railway Station (and from there into the inner city). There is also a bus station (4 minutes walk) where busses leave to the the former "Reichsparteitagsgelände" (if you want to see it).

The hotel itself is a very typical business hotel. Relatively small room(s), sparsely furnished. The bed, however, was quite good - as usual with the several Accor Hotels. What I did not like in the room: There's an aim to be little "boutique stylish". This includes the wall painting as well as the bath room.

Comming to the bath room: The only privacy you may find is the toilet stall, although there's a huge gab between door and door frame. The wash basin is in the open and the shower stall is glassy on three sides, including that one fronting the rest of the room. Ok, the glass walls are matted at the "essential" heights, but I don't like it at all. If I would have known that beforehand I wouldn't have booked there.

The breakfast buffet was 18€, which is obviously normal these days. But to be honest I would've expected more for that money. Especially when it came to the beacon. That was hand counted (really!) by a waitress, a nice one anyway. Around Nuremberg I know some B&B places where you can get more and better things for breakfast for half the price.

Some reviews say that the underground parking is free. Well, it wasn't. 14€ a day.

Overall the hotel meets the (German) criterias for a 4-star place. But some are really stretched. It would be quite an acceptable 3-star, exept the price. That's a 4 stars.

Overall I believe an "average" fits quite well.

Classic Mercure quality. Clean rooms. Professional staffing. Easy Check-in. There was one interesting aspect of the room design. The shower encased in glass was midpoint in the room which was interesting! Shower, watch television, have a conversation all at the same time! Located approximately 1.2 Km from the center of the city. In terms of restaurants, cafes, etc.,immediately around the hotel, nothing exists other than the hotel restaurant. Most restaurants are in the city center. There is a nice lake across the hotel that we preferred to be at in the afternoon. Boating, a small beach area, and biking/running/walking trails were available. In my case, sitting under a tree with a good German beer on a lazy afternoon can never be a bad thing, Tourist hordes were sparse in the area so that was a fantastic thing. I would recommend this location based on its location ... close enough to partake in the tourist event in the center and far enough to do what the locals do ...

This is your classic German business hotel. The rooms were clean and the mini-bar was gratis. Just as a warning, If you are traveling with someone you don’t normal see naked, these rooms could be an issue because the showers are right out in the open in the bedroom with glass doors. Personally I think this is a very fun and interesting design, but for some it could be an issue. I stayed here with my family who had traveled from the states for my brothers wedding and I everyone seemed to have a good stay. You are better off not paying the expensive breakfast price because it does not get you much more than coffee, tea, bread and cheeses. Downtown and the train station are about a10-15 minute easy walk and there is a nice park just adjacent to the hotel property. The price for the hotel was a little steep during the week but the weekend rates were decent. All in all, a good hotel if you are in Nuremberg for business or pleasure.

Stayed here for my last night in Germany. The rooms are clean and the price was reasonable. They have queen-size beds too! That was a pleasant surprise after sleeping on a twin-size bed in Munich for a few days. The food was pretty good, but nothing special. It's not too terribly far from the train station, which is always a plus. The staff is wonderful! Everyone was very polite and helpful. There was one man working in the restaurant who was the absolute best - so friendly and genuine. When I go back, I will be staying here without a doubt.

Room Tip: The bottom floors are non-smoking. The top floors are all smoking rooms, but I really could not tell...

A very pleasant hotel with a generous selection of breakfast foods but nothing special. The initial welcome was polite, efficient & helpful, where the departure was somewhat cold & indifferent - a different member of staff. The room was modern but was not as clean as I would have expected. Well situated & having left the car in the secure parking area, the modern & efficient trams were a short ride form the city centre.
