“private Hotel in Nurnberg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

we checked in on Friday night we were met by a very friendly Man who spoke English very well.He was the Son of the owners .We were given a good size room with bathroom ,Tv is good it gives at least 3 english speaking channels. Wifi is available for a few euros , Breakfast was very good there was choice of yoghuts and fruit cereal and Eggs and sausages . For the price of $89 euros this i thought was very good , There is also a small minibar fridge in the room which can be used for your own things , The hotel is about 50 metres from the western end of the Central station. This is very convenient for anyone travelling by train like myself ,Personnally i like to support Private Hotels and this is a good one

Room Tip: the rooms at the back are quiter because they are not facing the street

we had been informed when we booked that the elevator will not be working due to renovations.we were on first floor.it was silent,we slept well.the hotel was very close to the train station and the police headquarters.we stayed about a week as we planned daily trips to Bamberg and Munich and Würzburg.however mostly when we entered the hotel there was no one around at the reception.people usually stayed for a day or two.linens were clean and the towels were changed every day.but twice we found things that did not belong to us in our room.once a screw driver and then an invoice for some guest! some long hair on the bathroom wall which did not belong to us as well.

Let's start with a fact that is basic to put reviews on perspective:

-I booked a double room to be used by one person. Room+Breakfast was 65 euros per night in this 3 stars hotel.

- Location: The hotel is 50m away from the train station and 10 min away from the city center on foot. Usually in Germany I try to avoid areas surrounding train stations as they are usually edgy, but this is not the case in Nuremberg. The Sheraton Hotel is just next door and so are several other known hotels.

- The room was standard, with a huge tv but a small bathroom.

- One of the best features of this hotel are the people working on it. Everyone made me feel really welcomed and they were more than happy to help me with suggestions and even providing maps for the city.

- Breakfast was basic. I would have loved a bigger variety but taking into account the price for the night is acceptable.

- The only inconvenience was that I did my booking well in advance so I didn't know about the renovations going on. They are changing the lift and therefore you could hear people working from early in the morning. Hopefully I think they will finish those works in September 2012.

Stations in German cities are often surrounded by red-light districts. Nuremberg is an exception - this hotel is only a few hundred metres from the side entrance to the main station down a very quiet street made up of other respectable hotels and various financial offices. It is a few minutes walk to the national railway museum and to the historic walls around the city centre. The rooms are compact but clean and comfortable. Reception were friendly and breakfast very good, although the buffet area is a bit cramped. We had the warmest of welcomes from staff who spoke excellent English. I wouldn't particularly join the criticism of the decor - it is more a reflection of German tastes in this sort of hotel. For us the big thing was that it was clean and well-maintained.

This hotel is less than a minute from the central station. I had a room at the rear and could not hear the trains. There is a building site next door where the bank once stood, that produced some noise, but not into the evening.

The rooms are spotless but dated.

Breakfast was ok, but the selection could of been greater.

For business its fine as next to station, and only one minute across the road is the wall to the historic altstadt.

The guy at reception gave me a map and drew a route around the altstadt, explaining points of interest.

Question the value, probably only as the decor is dated though.

The front door is about 25 steps from the West Exit of the central train station (Nuremberg HBF). I was working a trade show at the exhibition hall in Messe and we rode the U train everyday, so being this close to the station was excellent. For weekends and evenings, it was walking distance to the bars/restaurants, old churches and castle inside the old city walls.

The room itself was sparse but comfortable enough. The single bed is a true single - no way two people could comfortably sleep there - but just fine for one person. The complimentary breakfast was good and the staff is very welcoming and accommodating. Any issues or requests were dealt with swiftly.

This hotel is not the place to go if you plan to spend time luxuriating in a hotel room. This is a solid business/traveler hotel for those who seek a clean, simple, place to sleep in an extremely convenient location.

My husband and I were lucky to stay 24 days at the hotel "Marienbad" in Nuremberg. It was Christmas and New Year period and we were happy to find a family corner in an unknown city. Hospitality was perfect! All the members of the staff were helpful and spoke English very well(I don't know German). Tidy rooms, comfortable beds, close to historical centre of the city and close to railway station which was very quite and more look like a shopping centre. We had rich breakfast in the mornings with fresh food and fresh baked bread and tea and coffee were free all day long. Fast internet was working all the time. Excellent smell of burning candle and smiling young gentleman in the reception were the symbols of the hotel every morning! Family run hotel became a sweet home for us and the Family members we met became a part of our hearts. We are planning to visit Nuremberg again and we are sure we will choose "Marienbad" to stay at again although we are fond of changing our hotels all the time but this hotel is an exception! Our friend booked this hotel for us saying,- "It has good location, good service and reasonable price". And everything was just like that... and plus kindness and care of all the staff! Great thanks to the Haag Family with best wishes and full rooms of guests to Marienbad Hotel! Lilit
