We booked in for 2 adults and 2 small children and the room was perfect for us. There was a kitchenette that was practical for our 2 night stay with kids and the room itself was long and narrow with the office corner and tv in the middle which was brilliant as the kids had one distinct area with the sofa bed and ourselves the other with a double bed. Everything was properly made up and spotless on our arrival.
For the kids, at the reception theres a small play area with an Xbox, books and building sticks (standard novotel) and the receptionists had little gifts for the kids which they really appreciated!
There's a charge for wifi in the hotel but there's an apple pc at reception that can be used for free which I used a number of times to checkout the weather forecast and tourist info.
Service wise, I can't find fault with the staff at checkin, bar or breakfast. All were friendly and efficient. Even the cook in he kitchen appeared from time to time in the breakfast room to make sure the buffet was properly stocked!
Which tidily brings me to the breakfast. Luckily for us we had a fantastic weekend deal for room plus breakfast. After a dissapointing experience at Novotel Metz where quality and choice was really lacking I wasn't sure what to expect, but this hotel is far better. There's a wide range of breakfast cereals, the hot breakfast was good, the cold buffet section had a great choice and there was fresh fruit also available.
As is pointed out elsewhere there's a paid garage in the basement which is very practical when traveling with kids(and on rainy days) with large parking spaces and a lift that goes straight to the reception and rooms. The hotel location is good in certain ways as you are straight onto the autobahn in a couple of minutes which brings you straight to the center of Nürnberg or to the north to the beautiful city of Bamberg, so for a stay that incorporates both cities it's quite practical.
I can't really think of any fault in the place that I could deduct a point for, as anything that could be improved on would be to make the stay even better than it already was, rather than fix a problem.
