“Outstanding staff”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

The staff made my stay very enjoyable. Every individual was attentive and pleasant. This hotel is conveniently located across the street from the main train station, which made it easy to get just about anywhere. I traveled by train to the Messe (convention center) daily, and it was extremely to take the train to the airport at the end of my trip. This is an old hotel that has been elegantly updated. Quite expensive from U.S. standards. The room was a little small, and the bathroom was large. I requested a quiet room, so mine overlooked the small courtyard. Very quiet and comfortable. I received an iron and ironing board upon request, but no coffee maker, as we have in every U.S. hotel room. There was a clock, but no alarm. Wake up calls are easy to request. Overall, I was very happy with my experience.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the courtyard are quiet, although you do not get any view of the city.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while attending the annual BIOFACH convention

The hotel is excellently located just a few minutes walk from the main train station in Nuremberg right at the enterence to the old town area

The welcome at the front desk on arrival was warm, attentive, efficient, informative and very friendly

I had a room on the 3rd floor so was directed to the lift by a very helpful member of staff

My room, although a bit on the small side, was beautiful

The room was very clean with modern facilities, big flat screen TV, Ipod docking station at the bed side

The bed was extremely comfortable, the pillows were first class and this all made for excellent sleep on both nights I was there

Bathroom was very nice, clean and had a fantastic bath (with shower if required)

My only gripe would be the lack of free WI-FI

In this day and age, given the number of devices now being used by just about everyone that use WI-FI connections (I'm talking Phones, lap tops, IPads etc) it's just wrong to be asked to pay quite a considerable amount on a daily basis to be able to access the hotels WI-FI set up, surely this ought to be built in to the room price and not charged as an additional expensive add on?

The hotel also has a very modern and smart gym and sauna facility located in the basement that you can only access by using the lift, the gym has excellent brand new running machines and cross trainers, there is also a small area with free weights if thats what you need

I would stay at this hotel every time I visit Nuremberg if I could, it was only a very good deal that made me actually choose the hotel in the first place as otherwise I would not have been able to afford to stay there as it is normally a VERY expensive place to stay

My thanks must also go to the very well trained and attentive staff, they are a credit to the hotel and their management

Dear travelmanfrompompey
Thanks a lot for your great comments about the staff and the hotel. Despite the fact that we still have some small rooms, the interior design and the quality of the bathrooms make up for it. We have noticed your comments about free Wifi and we are really thinking of implementing this in the near future. By the way, you stayed in the hotel during the Biofach, a time were a lot of pressure is on the city and nearly all hotels are full. Please try us when there is no fayre going on and you will be surprised about the price politic we offer. Hope to meet you soon again in Nürnberg and thanks again for your smashing comments.
Best regards

Reception staff OK; nothing special. Room OK; nothing special - but quiet. Good breakfast with a magnificent selction of hot and cold food - a real treat! Opposite the station so very convenient. The city is great to visit, and it's just by the old walls. No spa but one in another hotel was recommended and was good

Sehr geehrter MichaelH62
es freut mich zu lesen, dass sie im Großen und Ganzen mit den Leistungen zufrieden waren. Schade das sie an der Rezeption nicht nach unserem Spa gefragt haben, der steht unseren Gästen seit einem halben Jahr zur Verfügung. Vielleicht kommen sie ja nocheinmal nach Nürnberg, dann lade ich sie ein den Spa zu benutzen.

When you like European art-deco in it's original glamour, this is the best hotel in the Nuremberg area.......the staff is really wonderful and friendly.......there's never a NO in there answer and service is in the highest standard of the Hotellerie.

Recently WIFI in all rooms and renovated in 2009 in a very elegant style.

The rooms might not be the biggest but it has all the ameneties and services to make your stay wonderful, rooms are very clean!
The kitchen is very good and the breakfast-buffet aswel.

This Hotel and especially the restaurant/breakfast room gives me a high Murder-on -the-Orient, Agatha Cristy feeling and you expect to be in the middle of one of the scenes out of the wonderful movie from 1974 from Sindney Lumet with celebrities like Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Albert Finney.......

It is recommendable to be dressed properly as this is a hot-spot for the rich and famous of this beautiful city, especially the Sunday Brunch!

Just a highly recommendable Hotel!
If any questions......evds@rocketmail.com as I am a regular guest of this hotel.

Wow, what a great review, thank you very much for that. The biggest praise you can give to a hotelier is when the staff is getting praised, I will pass your comments on to them and I will put your comments up on the staff notice board, I am sure that you made our associates very proud.
I also love the description about Agatha Cristy feeling and our Brunch. I hope you will soon return and once again thank you very much.

I stayed here 2 nights for business, visiting Euroguss Messe. Was referred to this SPG brand after Sheraton having no room available. Booking per TF was quick and efficient. Location of hotel is excellent in center, accross the central train station and near to Old city-center. Room (102) was spacious with sitting-corner, big flatscreen TV and split king size bed. The bed and sleeping quality was really poor, compared to similar brand and priced hotels. Bathroom was long and spacious; showerhead was blocked for adjusting the water-intensity.....need repair. fast Internet was at a charge of Euro 19/day. Parking in accross street public parking garage for Euro 17/night. The breakfast is wide assorted good quality. All in all am doubting to rate this hotel between average and good. The poor sleaping quality decided me to go for average. Pricing incl. parking fee and internetfee is too much asked for the overal pereformance.

Dear globetravelerNL
As you may know, the Grand Hotel Nürnberg belongs to the Starwood family with 9 different Brands in Total. Sleeping comfort is the most important subject within our company and we get a lot of praise for the quality of mattresses the company offers. In Westin the bed is called Heavenly sleeper and Le Meridien also developed its own bed which is highly rated. I am sorry that we were not able to meet your taste. The Grand Hotel was built in 1896 and those days there were only horse carriages on the roads and own parking was no issue. We are happy that we were able to make a deal with a parking garage close by and we only charge what we get charged ourselves. Your comments about the internet is a point we think about and I hope that we are able to offer free internet in the near future. Once again, thank you for your review and I hope we are able to welcome you back once you are in town.
Yours sincerely

The Meridien has a certain ring to it but on this occassion it didn't quite live up to expectations. The location is great, right next to the Central Station and one of the main entry gates into the old city. The hotel is fine, really, but the room we were allocated was extremely small and pokey. All the ammenities were in order and the decor was fine but there was hardly room to move around the bed or anywhere to put a suitcase. And this was supposed to be a SPG room, for their, supposedly, most valued customers. The room size was disappointing. The staff were fine, even though the bar, where one was to order coffees as well, was a complete disaster with the staff overwhelmed and the mess unbelievable. Staff were still nice though and polite but I don't think a bar in that state would be tolerated in many places. Other services through the hotel were fine although rather non-descript and what one would expect from a hotel chain like this.

Dear castorLondon
Thank you for your comments. It is nice to hear that you liked the location of the hotel and the in general well trained and polite staff. The hotel was built in 1896 and there is not a lot we can do with the actual room size. A 100 years ago, hotels were built in such a way. Sorry that we disappointed you. I have spoken to my Bar Manager to make sure that always well trained people work together with less skilled staff, until they have the skills themselves. Once you are back in town, we would love to welcome you back.

I stayed here with my partner for 6 nights over Christmas break.

Location: Fantastic and convenient. As others have mentioned, it's right opposite the Hauptbahnhof - 15-20 minutes direct route from the main airport on the U-bahn. Several trams, U-bahns and S-bahns stop directly in front of the hotel if you're planning to go further from the city centre, but if you're there for a few days and just want to stroll into the city centre - the hotel is about a 5-10 minute walk to Lorenzkirche area, which leads you into the Old Town.

Rooms: We had a deluxe dream room with a King sized bed on the 5th floor. Take note: It was very cosy - not much room to walk around as the bed took up the entire space. The room has one closet, no dressers, one small bar fridge and a desk with one chair, so it took a bit of smart unpacking on our part. Granted, if it's just a night or two, it would be okay but as we were there almost a week, it took a bit to get used to. Even with the tight space, the bed was heavenly and the area was absolutely quiet (no view from our side of the building) so very peaceful indeed! The bathroom was nice, with full bathtub and great shower, strong water pressure and heat. The rooms were cleaned meticulously each day, and even if you left the room later in the day, the cleaning staff always found a way to clean the room - so that was very nice.

Ambiance: Whilst it was an elegant hotel, the atmosphere a bit dull - definitely not for a young couple (like us), but because it was Christmas, everything was dressed up and it took a while for us to notice that the other people staying at the hotel were primarily older couples, families, etc. The bar downstairs was the same clientele - definitely not a choice for an exciting night out if that's what you're after!

Food: Since all the shops closed on Christmas Eve (afternoon and evening), Christmas Day (all day) and Boxing Day (all day), let's just say we had our share of room service meals. Considering it was Le Meridien and what seemed to be a business hotel, the food prices were very reasonable - Ciabatta sandwiches started at 7 or 8 euros, and other meals hovered around that price with the most expensive dish being the Argentinan grilled steak at about 17 or 18 euros. Everything we ordered was very tasty - the steak was actually a favorite, as well as the shrimp salad - and each meal came with ample bread rolls, butter, etc. We also had a meal in the restaurant for Christmas Day, but that was a buffet, and it was okay - bit overpriced and a lot of the food went a little dry, but the unlimited wine made the meal worth it.

Customer Service: The girls who worked there were super friendly, and gave lots of advice and took the time to help you out, even if there was a queue. They gave recommendations based on honesty, from night life to which attractions were worth going to, etc. Some of the men who worked there were a bit useless for information, but my tip would be just to ask one of the girls - they seem to be more in the loop about what's going on around them.

All in all, it was a wonderful place to stay in such a lovely city, and it made our Christmas absolutely memorable!
