We stayed at Zum Schwaenlein during the last week of May 2014 for 4 nights. This is a small one star hotel with a very typical look to it. There has not been much if any change in the hotel interiors for many years now, I know as I have been staying here since 2002.
The room we had was on the first floor facing the small garden at the back. Though comfortable it was on the small side, the stairs leading up are quite steep and if you have heavy luggage it may be quite an effort. The housekeeping was good and rooms are cleaned everyday with fresh bed linen changed every two nights.
One complaint I had was that the beds were placed extremely low and were difficult to get into and out off.
The breakfast is quite good and has a good mix of breads, cheese and cold cuts. A choice of beverages both hot and cold are also available.
The owners Michael and Ilona also run a very popular restaurant serving up hearty local fare which is both tasty and wholesome.
The hotel is at a great location, a very short walk from the Hauptbahnhof (main station) and on a quiet street right inside the old city walls.
All the popular old town sights and restaurants are located within a kilometer or so from the Hotel and its very convenient to walk around the old city from this location. A lot of shopping opportunities are also available near by with a large departmental store 'Muller' located within 2 minutes from the hotel.
Considering the room tariff, the location & facilities are quite adequate and if you do not have too many great expectations, this will be just the place to stay in while at Nuremberg.
