“Perfect. Centre of Nuremberg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Small friendly hotel in a quiet square in the centre of this atmospheric city. Best restaurant , Daniel the owner, makes everybody very welcome. Food excellent, staff efficient and very friendly. Rooms reasonably priced for location. We have stayed at Merian every second year since 1997 . Quality and service consistent entry high.

So I admit that I rarely stay in non-chain hotels, even in Europe so this would not normally be my cup of tea but just so the context is understood this is a small, older, European style hotel.

The rooms have been remodeled and are fairly nice. The bathroom is fairly small but clean and modern. Beds were fairly comfortable The location is very pleasant. Easy to access much of the old part of the city but off on a fairly quiet street with a little plaza out front. The view is pleasant because of its location on the small plaza. It is fairly quiet and if the windows are shut you won't hear much of what is going on outside.

There are a few negatives which are typical of this style of hotel. There are no "lifts" so you will get plenty of exercise getting back and forth to your room. Also during the German summer the no air conditioning is a challenge because there is a busy (very good) restaurant just below the windows not to mention some kind of bar across the street. Opening the windows results in a little too much street noise for those of us not used to living in the city.

The free breakfast was quite good which is probably not a surprise because the restaurant on the ground floor is excellent. That should probably be mentioned too--the restaurant on the ground floor is so good that I had two of my four meals (including colleagues) there.

The innkeepers are extremely nice and very helpful. When I had to leave early on a Saturday they insisted on preparing me a breakfast the night before since I left before breakfast service.

A very enjoyable stay at the Hotel Merian.

Room Tip: Try to get a room where the windows open to the side street facing the old "grain storage build...
