We found the staff very helpful and friendly, room was very clean. Was easy to get in town, about 5 min walk to tube station. We found the price (about £55) for two people without breakfest reasonable.

160 Euro per night inc breakfast! Very basic rooms, duvet was smaller than the area of the top of the bed (about a foot all the way around). Not a nice location.

Only two redeeming features 1) helpful and pleasant manager 2) clean.

We left it late to book a hotel in Nurnberg & anything that was available was very pricey. This looked ok with the photo's shown, & the reviews were ok.
I thought that the rate charged was very pricey for what was a very basic pension.
However, we took 2 rooms for 4 people. the rooms were clean & airy. Linen was clean & plentiful. 1 room was not en-suite & the shared bathroom could have been cleaner.
Breakfast was fine @ €7.50 a head. the staff were very friendly & everyone on reception spoke excellent English.
This is about 3/4 kms from City centre & 10 minutes walk to train station. Very few facilities around the area, which is not very nice, but there is a shopping centre with restaurants & bars about 5 minutes walk. These close about 2000 hours.
We left an item behind & the staff located it & were more than helpful in trying to return it to us.

If I was late for class at senior school, the master would give me the task of writing out, by hand, the words “I must not be late for class” one hundred times. Being late booking a hotel in Nuremberg means that, as a punishment, you get to stay at the Pension Im Bett.

Located in the cosmopolitan second-hand car area of the city, and very close to Fürth, it stands as a brick sentinel over the full parking lots and assorted empty gambling casinos that occupy the flat land area, with the odd row of pre-WW2 houses looking quite out-of-place in a vehicular landscape. Most of these have signs in the window which says ‘Pension Bukarest’ or some such, which tells you all you need, or don’t need, to know, as the case may be, and the words ‘Zimmer frei’ confirm suspicions.

The Pension does not stretch to a lift, nor much by the way of carpet. To meet Sicherheit requirements it has what might be called disabled access, but you would need a block and tackle to get a wheel-chair up the ramp. (Note: you should not book a disabled person into this pension; they will have suffered enough already). One a sunny May evening, the Christmas sign on the frosted glass door says “Welcome”. Two gentlemen of Levantine appearance look at you as you enter, with that inherently wary suspicion of people who run such 1* establishments. To verify that they have a genuine guest, they photocopy your passport. “You have been awarded the ‘Classic’ suite”, they proudly inform you. This, apparently, means that you do not have to share a bathroom. Instead, as one of the two coves explained, “You have your own key to a bathroom which will be your own!” The milk of human kindness knows no bounds, and one was tearful with gratitude.

The bedroom is post-WW2 refurbishment, but with the addition of some dusty artificial flowers. Two pine cots sit untidily along the walls of a garret room which fits the request of “a quiet room at the back” by being above the main road at the front. No one could describe the furnishings as opulent; clearance sales have played a part, as have charity shops. There was a wall-mounted TV, which seemed permanently and immovably tuned to an English-German language course run by a hirsute professor. Alternative entertainment can be provided some evenings by fist-fights outside the fitness centre opposite, which has very muscular Romanians and Bulgarians as members, who do not rub along too well, it seems.

Sleep is not an option. The comings and goings of guests continues until way past 1.00am. At 4.00am the sunshine in the room is bright, the diaphanous wafer-thin deck-chair-striped curtain material being no match for the solar intensity. Two ladies in the next room strike up a conversation. There is no in-room refreshment service, apart from a disused ‘fridge parked in the corner. The time ‘til breakfast hangs heavy.

The bedclothes at the Pension Im Bett almost defy description. Man-made fibres play an important role in their manufacture, and the duvets on the single beds are generous if you (a) are about 5’ tall, and (b) do not move an inch during the night. In all other eventualities, they slide to the floor. The pillows are intriguing – they are amorphous by design, and tedious in use. The aim of supporting the head is lost, but the side-effect of covering the ears is obtained quite well.

Be warned – the Pension sits in a gastronomic wasteland, and has no restaurant. But if you turn left out of the front door, turn right at the casino on your left about 50 yards away, fight off the temptation to join the child-rich income-poor families on social security huddled together in the KFC on your left, steer a flanker past the Japanese restaurant (Nuremberg is MUCH too far from the sea to even begin thinking Japanese) you will come across an Italian restaurant which is so dimly lit that it looks closed. Within you will find, amidst funereal furniture, cheerful staff who might be Turkish, or Polish, who will knock up some amazing cocktails, produce a good Merlot, serve over-generous portions of Italian food cooked by an Italian chef, (recommend the grilled steaks and the chicken, and the pizzas are the size of dustbin lids), so be hungry upon arrival. Enjoy it, for it is the only place in that part of town within walking distance. On the subject of walking, be advised that the area is popular with young second-hand car salesmen taking various models made by Porsche for test drives during the evening hours, to impress their girl-friends.

The hot water supply here is unreliable, cleaning comes pretty well down the list of priorities, and they grossly overcharge for what they offer. This is a 25 Euro place charging 75 Euros, with breakfast and wi-fi extra. One imagines that Lidl are the caterers, so the breakfasts are pretty grim.

The moral of this is review is simple. Book Nuremberg early, and use Trip Advisor. That way a depressing calamity is avoided.

(For the morbidly curious, you will find this place on Bookings.com, accompanied by other reviews which are more complimentary, for example extolling the wonders of the coffee machine by the front entrance. Some people are easily pleased, it would seem.)

Room Tip: No lift, no air/con, no service, probably no en-suite bathroom, so which room you choose is up to yo...

Far from center, poor staff with poor english, busy with smoking shisha. Basic and not very fresh room, but still ok for 1 night. No free wi-fi, but there's a parking on street.

Stayed in this hotel 4 nights. The hotel is 7 minutes walk from the underground and 12 minutes by the underground to the center of the town. The room was clean and tidy, breakfasts were tasty, the stuff was friendly and very helpful.Good value for money. I case we go to Nurnberg again - will stay there.
