We stayed at the Le Méridien Grand Hotel Nuremberg in a grand deluxe king room for two nights in early December and found the hotel’s ambiance and accommodation quality less than inspiring. On the positive side, the personnel at the front desk were excellent, and the location is excellent: right at the Frauentor and a long segment of the city walls, it offers easy access to the Tourist Info office, the main train and U-Bahn stations, the pedestrian shopping and restaurant area that leads to the Lorenzer Platz.
The rooms have been recently redecorated in a dull palate of gray and gold. The pictures on the website make them seem more inviting than the reality, which is cold and uninviting rather than clean and contemporary. The furniture is sparse, the reading chairs are uncomfortable, the closet and drawer space (in the bottom of the closet only) is barely adequate. Our room lacked the upholstered bench at the foot of the bed, pictured in the web photos. This would have been very useful for holding a suitcase. The bathroom is cramped, and the area for toiletries is too small.
The hotel is not a very good value. We were perhaps overly sensitive to this because we arrived just after five nights in Berlin’s Hotel Adlon, at 250 Euros/night including sumptuous breakfast buffet and free WiFi. At the Grand, we paid 249 Euros (advance, non-refundable) for the room alone, plus 22 Euros per person per day for the breakfast buffet and 19 Euros for WiFi per day, for one device!
The breakfast buffet was large but ordinary, with the exception that the selection of local cold sausages, cured meats and various pickled vegetables was quite nice. The breakfast room is noisy and in early December filled with noisy groups of women tourists in Nuremberg for the holiday markets. The tables were not cleared promptly by the overwhelmed waitstaff, and it was difficult to get anyone’s attention to obtain coffee.
