“Great stay, excellent staff, wonderful hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Hotel Drei Raben is in a great location. It's an 8-minute walk to the Nuremberg train station, a 5-minute walk to the tram station, a 5-minute walk to the main part of the Nuremberg Christmas market, and inside the old city. You cannot ask for a better-situated hotel in Nuremberg's old city.

The hotel itself is quirky, fun, pretty, and clean. The reception area opened up into the dining and bar area, which were decorated beautifully. In the evenings, the hotel offered a wine tasting. Bar staff were helpful, friendly, and more than helpful with recommendations. Breakfast was simple yet full of choices and excellent food and beverages. Again, the staff's customer service was impeccable.

Each room has a story..literally. Our room's story was that of the Nuremberg Egg. The story and decorations were charming. And our room, we were told, was the smallest in the hotel...but it was more than large enough for two people! The bed, duvet, and pillows were heavenly...it was like sleeping on marshmallows, it was so soft and comfortable. The bathroom was spotless, the hotel toiletries were nice, and the shower had good, strong-flowing hot water.

The hotel staff were wonderful...the ladies who took care of breakfast in the morning were lovely and kind, and the gentlemen who tended the bar in the evenings were brilliant and friendly. We were fortunate enough to check in when Ralf, the hotel's vice director, was on duty. He is a great asset to the hotel and its guests and has a wealth of information about Nuremberg. He gave us some fantastic recommendations of things to see and places to eat.

I will only travel back to Nuremberg if I can stay at Hotel Drei Raben. It was a great experience!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Located in an excellent location near the pedestrian area and very near (5 mins walk) to the Christmas markets, our stay in the hotel was excellent. The staff are very friendly, helpful and willing to go that little bit further to make the stay perfect (for example going out to get croissants when none were available). The rooms are very comfortable with all the things you could possibly need as well as all being uniquely decorated; beds are excellent and they've tried to reduce noise as much as possible with all the glazing but it is still a hotel in the centre of the city. Pricewise it is fairly expensive - we paid €220 per night for a weekend in mid December - but I think it is cheaper out of season.
The breakfast buffet is unusually good with an excellent of dished from smoked fish to cheese, from meats to pastries. Also the barman (not for breakfast) makes and excellent whiskey sour.
Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

We enjoyed the romantic setting of the suite with the bathtub in the middle of the room. The bathroom was not luxurious, just conventional but clean. The drawings on the wall was story telling and very interesting.

The reception area was modern and chic. Breakfast was good and abundunt.

The location was terrific! In the heart of the old town in Nuremburg, you can walk around town with tons and shops and restaurants.

This hotel is in an excellent location in the pedestrian area near the main train station. The staff could not have been more helpful and congenial. Any small problem was solved immediately.
The rooms have different themes (we had the train room), and the bathroom was modern and supplied with toiletries. There is complimentary wine in the evenings, and a good buffet breakfast in the modern lobby.

This is definitely my idea of a fun and funky hotel. While in an old building, the common areas and the rooms are fully updated and include all amenities. The rooms are themed around a set of German folk tales. In our room, #14, the tale was artfully calligraphed onto the ceiling above the bed. A booklet of all of the tales, in German and English, was included. The location, in the old city, is excellent, a short walk to the market, the various cathedrals, and other sights. Rooms are clean and crisp. Staff were friendly and helpful. The only drawback was street noise, although it largely quieted down in the night.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms that don't face the street.

We stayed 4 nights in Hotel Drei Raben Nuremberg. The hotel is so popular that we agreed to change room 2 times to stay for 4 nights. The idea of Mythical Theme Rooms adds personal touch to attractions in Nuremberg. We stayed at theme rooms of St. Sebaldus, The Nuremberg Funnel and one night upgrade to Rabenspiegel Conference Suite. Having lots of fun reading the legend story book by the hotel.
Staff members are young, cheerful and enthusiastic. The very young Hotel Director Ralf Steinmann is hands-on and dedicated. Often we find him attending guest enquiries at Reception or having a chat with guest at the bar.
Nuremberg is historical, beautiful city. Our experience with Hotel Drei Raben confirms every good comments from Trip Advisor reviews.

Spent 4 days in Nuremberg and stayed at the Drei Raben. Both city and hotel are wonderful.Its well worth a detour to visit Nuremberg and if you do you MUST stay at this hotel. Location could not be better - a few minutes to tram and Hbf and an easy stroll to the Old Town. Close to a wide range of restaurants. The staff were so friendly and helpful in every way and could not do enough for you. Our room was good size and very clean and comfortable and extra quiet. Excellent breakfasts and an added bonus was a free wine tasting available each night. Added to all of this rates are very reasonable.
