I really liked this hotel a lot. I chose it partly because it was one of the few hotels in Nürnberg that included AC, and having spent one miserable trip to Europe during a heat wave, I had no desire to repeat that experience. But it was actually cool and rainy this time.
First, location: if you arrive by train as I did, exit the Hauptbahnhof, and go along the street to the right. After you pass the yellow post office on your right, you'll go a few meters further and then turn left across the busy street, including the tram tracks. You should be crossing directly onto Gleissbühlstrasse (there will be an U-Bahn entrance right on the corner), and the hotel is just 20 meters or so up. It has a vertical sign that says "hotel" with red letters on white squares.
It's a very modern, stylish hotel, which I loved. Don't come here if you want old-world charm. There's plenty of that in Nürnberg elsewhere. My single room was average sized by European standards, but included a full-size bed, highly unusual for an Einzelzimmer. Very slick and comfortable with neat art on the wall. Free wireless! (Very unusual for Germany.) The desk chair was an upholstered cube, so a bit hard on the back, but it was to save space. The bathroom had a red shower that I loved, and mirrors, dryer, etc. I'll help you out right now: to access the soap in the bottles in the sink and shower, just squeeze. I spent a while trying to find a button or something to twist. But you just squeeze them. Bed was comfortable, window had two panes that completely cut out all outside noise. In fact one of my favorite things about this place was how quiet it was. Even though they were sold out, I heard nothing except occasional people in the hall.
The breakfast was included and was excellent. Great homemade jams and jellies, sausages, eggs, multiple juices, breads, pastries, meats--everything. My other favorite thing about this hotel was the lovely red-headed lady at breakfast each day. She was so warm and welcoming, she always put me in a good mood. They also had a wide variety of newspapers in various languages that you could borrow to read while having breakfast (which was right off the very modern lounge area next to the desk). There was also a nice courtyard where you could eat if you wanted, and many people did when the weather was nice.
They were very accommodating in general. I originally had two reservations with a break in between, and decided to cancel my side trip. Due to a cancellation, they were able to accommodate me for an extra day and smoothly handled changing my booking. They loaned me an iron and ironing board as well, and gladly stored my luggage at checkout. About the only downside was that a lot of the time there was no one at the front desk. They seemed to often have only one person working in the hotel much of the time, so it might be hard to get help (but you probably won't need much help here--everything works great, including the AC which I turned on briefly to cool things down at night after closing the window).
The location near the Hauptbahnhof might put you off. Don't worry. The sleazy train-station neighborhood is to the south. You're to the north, right next to the Altstadt. 5 minutes walk will get you in the Altstadt and quick acces to museums, pedestrian areas, etc. It's also easy to get on the U-Bahn, as the entrance is practically at the front door. And you can go to the Hauptbahnhof for snacks because things are open late there.
I highly recommend it, and would definitely stay again.
