“Nice people, nice location, not for everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Design Hotel Vosteen is a small hotel a 15 minute walk to the old town of Nuremberg. It's in a residential neighborhood, and is quiet at night.
The rooms are quirky, each trying to re-create a 1950's bedroom. The baths are good. The lobby is small. Not Air-Conditioned, so if you have to sleep at 72 F, it's not for you in the summer.
The service is fine, though the desk closes about 8:30 or 9:00 pm. For Germany, it's all pretty laid back. If that's all OK to you, it's a good choice.

I found this hotel on trip advisor....great reviews were right. Beautifully decorated, very clean and incredible staff. We had a room for three and it was big and comfortable. The bathroom was also very comfortable and extremely clean. Loved the details. Spa towels, toiletries, and slippers. The breakfast was included and its great. Best cappuccinos!! We felt relaxed and at home. Personal or boutique hotels like this one provide great service. They were helpful and friendly and very courteous. Loved our time here. Three days was not enough. I will return and highly recommend the Vosteen. Five minute walk to the center of town very well priced. Its a winner!!!

Room Tip: This hotel is small but very roomy. No elevator but only three floors. Five minutes from train sta...

We are more than happy to recommend this hotel to solo, couples, friends, family and business travellers that want to stay in a non chain hotel with difference. The design of the hotel was immaculate from the front door all the way to small details in the rooms and common areas. The hotel looked like the pictures on the website, all was clean and working properly. The breakfast was good and very german (there could have been more greens). The staff was very kind and helpful even tough their English could have been better.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the garden have a nice view.

We booked 2 rooms well in advance of our weekend stay with family in this hotel. We specifically booked the larger room so that we could spend the evenings together.

This hotel is essentially only for families that can tolerate a lot of extra noise coming from the neighboring rooms above and next door (talking, footsteps, other kids banging about). Room Gartenblick is tiny (which we knew) but the mattress is awful hard and small. While the decor is from the 60s and 70s, I am betting that the mattress also dates from this time period. There is no air conditioning, or ventilation. However the rooms and hotel are clean.

The breakfast room is small and there are not enough tables to accommodate all the guests. When full, there is not much room to move around and select your food from the buffet. The selection of food is adequate.

Unfortunately the owner Christina decided to transfer our booking to a family with 3 children, without a phone call or email. This simple contact would have allowed us to reevaluate our plans to stay in this hotel. But what was more miserable was listening to all of the owner excuses and bemoaning that she has too much to do. She first tried to explain that there was a double booking, even though that was untrue because she admitted we booked the room first. Then she said she cannot know everything that is happening in the hotel, even though she explained it is the smallest in town with only 11 rooms, and tried to blame the young apprentice. She kept on making excuses for what seemed like an eternity, instead of being professional and explaining she made a mistake and was willing to offer some compensation. Then we were told that she cant make everyone happy, and we fall into the 5% that will never be happy. The entire time she was ranting, she could not even look us in the eye and apologize for her mistake. While she eventually moved our parents to a bit larger room, she then made other guests unhappy since they did not receive the room they booked. She clearly has NO understanding of professionalism and customer service.

Very well located near the old city. The rooms are not big but perfectly designed. The breakfast is excellent and the employees very kind and helpful. I am coming every year for the Toy Fair and I wouldn't change for another location.

I was in Design Hotel last week, attending at Nuremberg Fair. The hotel is very beautiful and very well located (just 5 min walk from nearest underground stop). The owner, Mrs Cristina is a very kind person, she was always available to help us when we had to solve some problems in the fair as to provide me a delicious vegan breakfast. THANKS!
