“Conveniently Located with a 15 Minute Walk to Downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Ms. Summerer runs a very nice B&B conveniently located to downtown Nuremberg with a 15 minute walk. We stayed for two nights in the "Gartenblick" room where the double (French) bed is comfortable. The room and bathroom are extremely clean and inviting. For breakfast, there is a nice assortment of cheeses, meets, and cerials. And a couple of choices for the Broetchen is something that we looked forward to. There is nothing like fresh German Broetchen. I highly recommend Hotel Vosteen. The one item that was a little frustrating is parking, unless you reserve a parking space. We didn't reserve one and wish we had. But it all worked out.

Room Tip: Given the Gartenblick room is smaller with a smaller bed, I would not recommend this room to folks w...

It was a pleasure to stay in a beautiful hotel that is so well maintained. As the owner informed me, some of the furniture in the hotel is actually incredibly old and many had to be restored to look as good as they do today. That includes the piano in the breakfast room, from the 1800s if I'm not wrong. I was thankful to be given the large Sonne room, which was actually quite surprising, considering that I travelled solo. As the staff member told me assuredly, "It's the most beautiful room in the hotel!" Which I actually believe to be true, because several vacant rooms were left open for people to admire their decor as they passed.

In general, the service in the hotel matches the pace of life in Nürnberg, but the staff is usually hospitable and polite. You can look forward to a nice chat at breakfast with the charming Florence who will put you at your ease instantly. =) The room does not have a safe or a mini bar, but it does encourage a more homely feel by making sure that all-day complimentary fruits, tea, coffee and water are available in the breakfast room which you can bring up to your room.

However, there is still room for improvement. The hotel does not have an elevator (which is actually a plus point, since an elevator might detract from the classic beauty of the hotel) but it's a rather long climb to the third floor. Yet, the steps are narrow on the right, and the only handrail is on the right! If you're trying to climb up the stairs with a heavy suitcase, you're pretty much forced to mince your way up on narrow steps with your suitcase in your left hand-which is a little odd considering that most people are right handed.

We stayed here for a few nights to visit Nuremberg and its Xmas Market. The hotel is fairly handily positioned just outside the north walls of the city and a short ride from the airport.
We arrived a bit early and our room wasn't ready so we took a different room on the top floor (3 storeys and no lift) but it was quiet and very pleasant. The rooms look comfortable and very clean. The decor is based on the 1950s but very attractive. The staff are very helpful, friendly and spoke excellent English - apparently all female.
The breakfast was adequate with a good choice of continental fare, albeit in a rather cramped room where table clearing didn't seem to be a priority. Eat early if you want the best choice of what's on offer.
For us it was a good base to see the sights and in a quiet location. There are plenty of restaurants in the city, about 20 minutes stroll away.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are quiet but quite a climb.

The hotel has the feel of a bed and breakfast. It is very inviting and in the middle of a quiet, beautiful street. You can walk to many restaurants. The rooms are perfect with lots of room as is the bathroom. The hotel is immaculate. The owner and her staff are very helpful in suggesting restaurants and points of interest to visit. The breakfast is good and there are lots of nice touches such as an offering of vitamins. I would come back in a minute!

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...
