This historic hotel is cosy and in a perfect location in the historic center.
Don't expect room service and amenities in this small place. We gladly lugged our suitcases up to the third floor to a not so small room overlooking Irrerstrasse. Soon, the hotel brought in an additional bed for our daughter (we had not been able to book another room for her). The breakfast buffet is not opulent but served well to prepare us for a day of walking through historic Nuremberg. The downstairs restaurant is a 'Schnitzeleria', and those who are fans of milanesas of all kinds are in for a treat. The owners/personnel are friendly. The central location makes it possible to enjoy long summer nights in town and to take in the atmosphere without having to use bus, subway, or taxi.
Here are a few caveats:
We had to park in a parking structure nearby, because the hotel has limited space (13 Euro for 24 hours). If you plan to explore Nuremberg on foot, this should not be a problem.
There can be noise on the street from people returning late, the occasional car, and partying locals.
Not every room looks as historic and stylish as shown in the photos on the web site.
Our room had a large street light just in front of the window.
Upstairs rooms can be very hot in summer and there is no air conditioning.
