“Great hotel, food and area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

The staff at the Hotel Elch was very welcoming and accommodating during our stay. The rooms were somewhat small, but very adequate and decorated lovely. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant which was delicious and a delightful German atmosphere. The location is great - a short walk to the town square and an easy walk to the castle. The day we left the hotel let us keep our car parked in their lot for some time after checkout so we could tour more of the old town. It was raining, and we didn't have enough umbrellas, and they were kind to lend us three for our walk. Would definitely recommend! (Note: there is no elevator, and our floor was up 4 flights of stairs - not a problem for us, just something to be aware of)

We stayed for 3 nights in the hotel. There was some initial confusion of where to check in since we didn't see the sign to head into the restaurant. Really enjoyed the restaurant downstairs for dinner one night and breakfast one morning. The staff was great about sharing tips and history of the building. The room itself was ok decor wise (the randomly plastic beaded chandelier was strange) but the bed was comfy.

Our two night stay at the Hotel Elch was wonderfull. Breakfast and dinner were excellent, room was quiet, just the right size for two, and very clean. Lots of character in the exposed wood beams and creaking wood floors. Staff were friendly and accomodating even though we arrived early on our first day. Highly recommended for anyone who is not afraid to stay in an hotel that is not the holiday inn.

Small and central hotel in Nurnberg. Cozy is the word -- good breakfast, small but clean rooms, good wifi. Walking distance to the center of the city. Friendly staff. Reception was closed when we arrived, but we'd been told to pick up the keys in the restaurant across the street. I'd come back.

Decent hotel, well located. Good breakfast - no variation though, same thing everyday - not very big choice. on booking it says no prepayment charge but they took the money upfront without even letting us know, kind of unprofessional. no manager on site, the cook solves any issues and she was not so pleasant at first, only after a chat with her manager! she kept ignoring me while talking back!!! no heater in the bathroom - not good for winter time! FREE WiFi!!! ( not so common in "civilized countries" anymore!!!

My mother and I arrived here on a freezing day in December and immediately felt very welcome! We’d just come off a very long flight from Australia, and although we arrived a bit early for check-in, we were shown straight to our room.

The Elch is in a great spot – it’s on a pretty street in Nuremberg’s Old Town, about a 5 minute walk from the main square and the enchanting Christmas Market.

The hotel is in a beautiful old characterful building and therefore there were a few creaky stairs, and low-lying beams etc., but we loved it and thought it added to the charm of the place!

Our room was very spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom, while small, was perfectly fine and the breakfast was wonderful – heaps of different choices (both hot and cold).

In the evenings, the Hotel’s breakfast room turns into a Schnitzelria restaurant – we ate there one evening and thought it was delicious and very good value for money.

All in all, we had a fantastic stay at the Hotel Elch, and will definitely stay there again when we come back to Nuremberg.
