Derag Livinghotel Nurnberg
Ranked #46 of 126 Hotels in Nuremberg
Reviewed July 28, 2011

We had booked a superior room. I was expecting one that had a divider between the sleeping area and living space but the first room they gave us did not have it. When I pointed it out, I was given the choice of other rooms. The rooms on the 4th floor are nice and large with separated kitchen area and sleeping area. Bed was very comfortable. But there is no air conditioning or windows so can get quite warm in the summer, unless you open the door to the balcony. There was free on-street parking which wasn't difficult to find. A Lidl and Norma are across the street which were very convenient for grocery shopping. We were relatively close to the castle and St. Sebald's Church. Would definitely recommend for families.

Room Tip: Try to get upper floor suites

While the main appeal is for business travelers, the Derag Maximillian is certainly fine for Nuremberg tourists. The Altstadt is a 15-minute walk or five-minute Ubahn ride away, where you have all the attractions and food Nuremberg offers.

It's not in an area surrounded by posh shopping -- the neighborhood is office/industrial, with a LIDL market catercorner from the hotel for food and a Mueller less than two blocks away for personal-care items. Restaurant choices are a bit limited; the hotel's dining is good, but doesn't give you many of the local specialities (which you'll find in abundance in the Altstadt). There are a couple of Imbiss and doner kebab joints close by -- and pretty good food for the price.

Rooms aren't fancy, but certainly kept-up and, with my double, roomy even by American standards. The Internet is a one-hour-free per day thing and fairly expensive after that, at €13 per day -- if your'e there more than two days, a €30 weekly deal is a good choice. (The idea of "free WiFi" in Europe is about as rare as "free coffee," so get used to it.)

The breakfast buffet is good, with a large selection of cold items and several versions of hot scrambled eggs. If it's included in the rate, it's a deal; if not, it's a consideration if you like a big breakfast in a nice pavilion with excellent table service.

One other thing -- you get a real key, not a keycard. And, no, you don't have to hand it over to the desk staff when you leave the building ... just when you check out.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the indoor courtyard

The hotel has a good location - within 10 min walk from city center and a big supermarkt nearby. The district itself is quite shabby but we had no problem with that. Rooms are spacious, there is a little kitchen set, but no table big enough to eat anything (in good weather you can use balcony which goes to a little nice yard). Very comfortable beds. For those interested in wireless internet - you have one hour a day for free, but don't count on high speed. The hotel is easy to reach - an underground station is only 5 minutes away. For the price they offer in advance it is a value for money.

The hotel is fine for a short stay but for any longer I would not recommend the self catering apartments. The kitchenette units are tiny and you really would struggle to prepare any kind of meal given the lack of equipment/crockery/cutlery. The kitchenette unit did not have the basics that you would expect to find. For example no toaster, no potato peeler, no frying pan, no corkscrew to name but a few.
In summary I would say that this is an ok hotel to stay in if you don't mind a 10 to 15 minute walk to the town centre and if you are planning on eating out most evenings. It is definitely not a family friendly hotel, particularly if you have young children.

We stayed in this hotel for six days for both business and holidays. I can say that it fit our needs perfectly since I brought my wife and two children with me. The price was reasonable considering the size of the room (loft with double bed and shower room, and downstairs a kitchenette, sofa bed, toilet, and balcony with table and chairs). As mentioned in a previous review, the fridge is topped up daily with a bottle of still water, water with gas, and beer. We saved a lot since we could prepare our meals instead of eating out often. For laundry needs, there are washers and dryers available in the basement for a fee.

Our room's balcony faced a cemetery. So if you are spooked by cemeteries, please ask the front desk to give you a room that is away from it.

The hotel is not that far away from the Old Town. But if you prefer not to walk, there is always the option of using the subway. It is far though from the train station if you are planning to walk from there to the hotel.

We arrived at the hotel in the late afternoon & even though the reception area was fairly crowded & busy,the staff kept things moving efficiently & we were soon in our room.We had booked a maisonette room & were well satisfied with that choice.The living area was spacious & well equipped with tv,cooker, fridge, microwave, sink, table, chairs, wardrobes, kettle, tea & coffee.The fridge had complimentary bottles of Becks beer & water which were topped up daily.We had a balcony with table & chairs which would no doubt,be nice in the summer but unfortunately due to the snow & cold that we arrived to,we didn't get much opportunity to enjoy it.The bathroom was a little smaller than i had expected but still adaquate enough for a weekend stay with shower,shower gel,hairdryer & plenty of towels.The sleeping area was above the living area & consisted of 2 single beds pushed together,a wardrobe & a desk.There was a sofa-bed in the living area if required.Breakfast was good & plentiful, continental buffet style with tea, coffee, juices, yoghurts, pastries, cereals, eggs, cold meats, cheese etc.We ended one night at the hotel bar & found it a good lively place to enjoy the excellent Bavarian beer & humour of the locals.The hotel has 2 lifts & a secure underground car park(charge extra)
We found all the staff to be friendly & cooperative & all spoke excellent english.

Out & about

We found the hotel to be well situated for exploring the city, located just a short,easy stroll from the old historic centre.The Planetarium was just around the corner & the old city walls,close by.We visited the Hauptmarkt where the massive Christmas Market was in full swing.The Frauenkirche & Schoner Brunner in the square were stunning.The Castle was more than worth the uphill walk to get to it as the views from it were superb.The Churches of St Lorenz & St Sebaldus were also worth spending some time at,both inside & out.If you didn't fancy walking everywhere there are a few metro stops close by to the hotel which was handy for us as we used the metro to get to Furth on the saturday night of our visit.
We spent pleasant time sampling the local brews,just around the corner from the hotel in The Kartoffel Restaurant & at Cafe Pintus & at Enchilada Mexican Bar/Restaurant & as i have already mentioned,at the hotel bar.We also visited the George Inn which was not the most welcoming or atmospheric establishment that i've ever visited & is definitely not a place i'd visit again.We had a superb meal in a newly opened restaurant,located very close to St Sebaldus Church,called Burggrafenkeller, a place i most definitely would visit again.
