Reviewed February 18, 2013

Wonderful Starwood property, lots of old fashion character yet modern and well maintained. Great location, across from main train station and steps to old town - shops and restaurants within walking distance. Room and bathroom were very nice, clean and comfortable. Room was small, but cozy and fine for one person. There is a great bar and two restaurants, all good service. Breakfast was wonderful, buffet style with an egg station where you can ask for omelettes, or any special requests. Buffet style made it quick and easy. 24 euros seem like a lot though, but may be it is standard for Europe. The room rate was super expensive (hence my low rating for value), but it could have been due to last minute booking and trade show. Starwood gold upgrade was not available due to hotel being oversold. Wifi available for a fee or as a Starwood welcome gift. The central elevator was sometimes slow and busy, but i used the main staircase since i was on 4th floor. Convenient taxi stand and subway entrance available right at hotel entrance. Friendly and helpful service throughout. Would highly recommend property.

Room Tip: Ask for room on lower floor and use main staircase which is more convenient than single elevator. As...

Stayed recently. Very expensive last minute booking, front desk staff friendly and helpful, restaurant staff unprofessional and rude. Room poorly illuminated, though with impressive marble bathroom, but otherwise a depressing dark space. Location is good beside central station, but overall very average, with a big A.

Very nice hotel in a good and central location. Although the building itself is very old, the public areas are "chique" with marble finishing. The service at the front desk is quick and professional. Breakfast is amazing with lots of choice. I have stayed here about 15 times over the last couple of years and the only disappointment is the size of the rooms. All rooms are modern and spotless. Some rooms are quite noisy and VERY small. Sometimes it can also be noisy in the morning with guests and staff slamming the bedroom doors. If you are a light sleeper you are better off asking for a room on one of the quiet wings. In all a nice hotel definitely worth staying in.

This hotel is in an excellent location- it is just outside the main station which was great since I was arriving via train and it was snowing!
Upon entry I was impressed, the lobby is spacious and elegant- not overdue like in some places. Check in was easy and my room was on the 3rd floor at the end of the corridor. The bed was a european king which I had become use too. The room was small and I was glad I was travelling alone for it would have been cramped with two people!! But the bed was comfy and the television had news channels only in english.

The bathroom contained a heated towel rack which was great- there was step that led into the bathroom- i kept forgetting and kicked my toes numerous times on that step.
I was unable to use the sauna/fitness facilities due to construction works. The hotel is also centrally located to the centre of Nurnberg and was able to walk to everywhere I wanted from this hotel.

Breakfast was included in my rate but what wasn't mentioned to me on my first morning at the buffet was that where two rooms which contained the buffet. So not knowing that I found the selection in the first buffet limited.
Overall a good hotel and if I returned to Nurnberg I would probably stay here again.

Hotel is located near station just outside old city walls so convenient for Xmas markets etc. Room was well-designed and very comfortable if not too big, nice breakfast, business centre with easy internet and printing access etc so overall thoroughly enjoyed my stay even if rooms were quite pricey

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.

Dear GHgrrl
Thank you for the time to review your stay in the Grand Hotel. As you may know, the Grand Hotel belongs to the Le Meridien Brand, one out of nine Brands Starwood operates. Le Meridien stands for chic, cultured and discovery, all what we offer. Unfortunately you do not like the design of the hotel, others do, so I only can say that it is not your taste. You visited the hotel during the Xmas market, our prime time and all other hotels, such as ours, are nearly full every day and in the morning it is very busy for breakfast, so there is not a lot we can do about it. I appreciate that you liked the associates, the location and parts of our breakfast buffet. Wishing you all the best for 2013.
Yours sincerely

this 4* hotel is very well situated : just in front of the main railway station of Nuremberg, if you arrive by train, you don't need a taxi, just to cross the place of the railway station. The hotel is nice, well furnished. my room was a bit small and the view into the inside of the hotel was not nice and sometimes with some rumors. the service and the people at reception are exceptionnaly kind with you. The restaurant is also top, with good wines, a bit expansive but high level. The dear steak for example is excellent, the oysters as well.
