“Unique, characterful, friendly boutique hotel of memorable quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Design Hotel Vosteen is one of those rare boutique hotels that succeed in bringing out the full flavor of comfort, intimacy, and warmth in its own unique style.

Each of the 11 rooms has its own name and seems to have its own theme (there are no room numbers). While not particularly striking by themselves, the themes conjure up a feeling of “I wish I had rooms like this at my home”. In fact, no single part in the hotel stands out by itself, but it is the sum of everything – cozy layout of the room, a thoughtfully-placed rug at the foot of the bed, city guide booklets and maps not just at the lobby but in every room, immaculately clean shower stall, bathroom heater that doubles as towel hanger/drier, a few extra amenities that are at the just right place, homey tea tables in corridor, 60s-ish breakfast room where guests can pick up complimentary bottles of mineral water or cups of tea or coffee at any time – that made us truly at home and delighted. In every aspect, this hotel goes a step or two further than other mid-range properties, and manages to bring them together as a cohesive whole that is better experienced than explained.

Breakfast is another example of going just a tad further than the competition; it has a little more variety, more fruits, and some interesting dishes.

The two ladies at the front desk are a little slow in action but mean very well, and try to accommodate all the reasonable requests. Many independent German lodgings, when asked to keep luggage before check-in or after check-out, store them in a room with open access, but here they place them at a corner in line-of-sight from the front desk.

The hotel is competitive location-wise as well. It is just outside of the old city wall, near Rathenauplatz U-Bahn (subway) station. While hotels inside the walls are more convenient for sightseeing, it is five or so minutes of walk to either the northern or the northeastern opening into the Altstadt (old city). Also, Rathenauplatz station is mere two stops from Nürnberg Hauptbahnhof (main train station).

Design Hotel Vosteen is a combination of two ingredients that rarely go together – motivated love for the property and knowing how to run it well. It is by no means flashy nor luxurious, but it is very thoughtfully designed and carefully kept. We highly recommend this little gem, especially for travelers staying in Nürnberg for two or more nights.

Room Tip: Ask the front desk. They will give you the best among the unoccupied rooms.

A hotel with character! Very nice and cosy rooms, friendly staff and good breakfast. Ideal location if you are visiting Nuernberg. Only negative side is that the reception is very slow and it if you are in hurry better to consider 5-10 min longer when checking in and out. Therefore, 4 stars. However, I would come definitely again.

The Design Hotel Vosteen is located only 10 minutes by foot from the historic center of Nyremberg so is a very good choice regarding the location of the hotel.
We have to say that the staff was very friendly,made us feeling like we were in our home,they even gave us free bikes-after our personal request by mail-to make a tour of the city.If you can take the bikes is really a good option to see the city of Nuremberg.
The breakfast had a big variety of foods like any German Guesthouse i have to say ,and very good!
The speciality was the rooms!The Guesthouse has different decorated rooms with different name to each one.Our room was very nice and clean!
Definately we come back to Design Hotel Vosteen and i highly recommend to anyone,i mean for couples,business,Families etc...

We arrived in the afternoon and were greeted by two lovely ladies (not sure of their names) but they couldn't have been more accommodating. One of them showed us to our rooms, explained everything we needed to know about the breakfast room and the mini-bar located there if we wanted anything after hours. She also gave us dinner recommendations, directions, and pamphlets for sight seeing attractions. The breakfast was excellent and the staff were incredibly attentive to the breakfast crowd... very quick to clean tables, replenish water, juice, etc. Breakfast selection was fresh and delicious! The bedrooms were incredibly clean and nicely appointed. Bed was comfortable and room was quiet. All in all, a great stay and we would love to come back!

The Design of this Design-Hotel is delightful from the common areas to the room and bathroom. The breakfast is extraordinary, with quite a variety of delicious items (a little shrimp-in-cream-sauce dish stands out) in addition to the more standard fare - cheeses, smoked salmon, etc. There is complimentary coffee at all times, some complimentary snacks, and more extensive snacks available in the breakfast room on an honor system. It is a short walk to the ramparts in back of the castle and the night view from the terraces of the castle is not-to-be-missed! There are good restaurants open in the altstadt even on a Sunday evening. As an older female traveling alone, I did not feel comfortable out in this town after dark. I had little time in Nuremberg, but would not recommend taking a car into this city at all unless you have planned well for the one-way streets and are familiar with the German style of driving - parking is difficult and you will need either fair German or a very good dictionary to decipher the many parking stipulations. This hotel is close to a metro stop and buses, though, and is very conveniently located for the tourist sites. Although the city-information seemed like the city may be hard to walk, it really was not, except for the front-side approach to the castle. You will be comfortable at this lovely little boutique hotel.

We chose this accommodation for the location and the possibility to have a safe garage (upon previous request, 8 euros per night). Once there we found out that it was also a lovely place! Very nice style and atmosphere. The room was not very big but it was very nice, comfortable and clean. The breakfast is rich and well presented. The staff is professional, very friendly and helpful.
Suggested! ;-)

Such a beautiful hotel you can feel the owners pride and care for their home. Breakfast was included and had a choice of fruit, meats, cheeses, breads and cereals. Tea and coffee always available. Parking in garage for nine euros. Perfect position to old city.
