Hotel Continental
Ranked #119 of 126 Hotels in Nuremberg
Reviewed December 23, 2012

This is an old and musty hotel located between a casino and a strip joint, with a night club and a live sex show opposite. Old and dirty and the lift is antique and slow. Obviously meets German fire code but feels dangerous. The location is city centre which is convenient if that's all you need.

Our stay was five days, and not recommended because both the rooms and the service are kept nefastos.Los radiators make noise, then the room was horrible and very uncomfortable beds, all linked to poor service and poor attention encargado.No workers and has nothing to do with the photos and what ofrcen internet and its Web web.Hicieron our trip to Nuremberg an unpleasant experience.

This hotel was very plain, nothing special. The location is about two blocks from main train station with lots of restaurants around. Friendly staff. Very little, included in breakfast selection and never ready when they say breakfast is starting. If your looking for less expensive and nothing more, this place is perfect.

Older hotel so I was not expecting modern styles and 5 star service. As well, depending on your level of noise tolerance, one might not want to stay above the strip clubs.
However for the price and location, I would say it was worth a short stay. Nothin

Likes:
10 minute walk from Haufbanof
great spot in the central part of town for exploring and eating


Dislikes:
Tranlucent curtains, so if I had the light on in the room, I am sure somebody can see in.
Noisy throughout the night due to my window facing into the strip clubs.

First things first - this hotel is ultra-cheap. For 33 euros I got a single room (WC and shower in corridor) including breakfast, and wi-fi was free. The room was very basic.

It is a very old hotel, and some of the fittings seem to date back to the 1960s. It reminded me of my first holiday abroad in Ostend c 1974! However, it looks to have had a partial refurbishment and it was very clean. Great location, bang in the centre and 5 minutes' walk from the station.

Regarding some of the negatives raised by others - I feel the hotel has been somewhat unfairly marked down for matters it doesn't control: namely the noise from discos, and for the strip clubs.

It may well be noisy at weekends - I don't know - it was fine when I stayed. As far as strip clubs go, these are as much a part of German society as Becks and bratwurst. It doesn't make the area dangerous, but of course if it makes you feel uncomfortable, stay elsewhere.

This was once a grandiose hotel, in the city centre. It is now dated, but has clearly been recently re-decorated although basically. The hotel and rooms are clean, we had an ensuite bathroom - the fittings were a little dated in style, but appeared new. Plenty of hot water etc.

The location of the hotel is excellent for a quick city break, you can get the underground straight from airport to a station a few minutes away from hotel. The hotel itself is located within the pedestrianised centre.

The breakfast is good, and the staff are friendly and appear helpful.

The negatives:

The sex clubs and peep shows next door. You will read about these in all the other reviews. They are not an issue, unless I suppose you were travelling with children. There is no seedy atomsphere down the road. I just think people are shocked to see them.

To summarise the style of the hotel managment - the breakfast room has been re-decorated, but they haven't changed the dirty, smoke tarnished pictures. This type of corner cutting is a good example of what I think may be the hotel management's style to running their business maybe. So the I am sure they have one or two rooms like the photos, but lets be clear they are showing you the best rooms, not a typical room.

Everything so far should not be reasons not to stay, other than the IBIS around the corner is probably the same or lower price, and more modern and standardised.

The real deal breaker is the fact their is a nightclub on the ground floor on the hotel. So when we stayed on a Thursday and Friday - There was music pumping out until three in the morning. We were on the second floor, and the base beat was constant and sometimes you could actually recognise the actual songs.

Hotel was inbetween and opposite live sex shows that were also nightclubs, the music went on all night until 7am. We were three females visiting the Christmas Markets, so not only was the area uncomfortable to walk back to our hotel at night but with the music going all night we did not get much sleep for the 4 nights we were there. The hotel was old fashioned inside and quite shabby .
On a good note the the breakfast was very good
