We decided on the hotel because of the location. The hotel was directly across the street from the old city. The outside entrance might worry you because it's back street location and plain appearance. The room was great with a separate bedroom and the breakfast was really good. The owner and his wife speak English well and are helpful.

The building from outside, or the scent in the corridors are not excellent. However, the sleeping quality is ok. On the positive side I note excellent location - just 5 minutes walk to the old town. Another positive are individual garage places, where you lock your car and get the key. On the negative - we slept in another building than the breakfast was served (and the garages were outside), so I imagine in winter it would not be great. Another (slight) negative was limited offer of hot food during breakfast - only bolied eggs (no sausages, scrambled eggs or so), however the cold plates were good (hams, savoury, joghurts, jams etc.), plus good fresh rolls. So overall, if you - as we - stay there only for sleeping/breakfast, it is a good choice.

This hotel is a short walk from the Old Town. The owners were very nice and helpful. Breakfast was great, with plenty of options. I stayed in a single room and the size was adequate. The bathroom was clean, spacious and the shower pressure was good. Everything was perfect. For the price, it is a true bargain!!!

Very clean hotel with convinient location near subway and tramway station.
Personnel is very hospitable.
I recommend this hotel also for families. Double room is quite large with private bathroom.
Hotel is located near historical centre of Nuremberg which is very interesting to visit.
I recommend to visit St. Lorenz Church, splendid gothic medieval style.

What a great place to stay in central Nurnberg. 5 minutes walk to old Walled City. Norbert and his wife provided superb personal service. The parking was free and very secure in a locked personal Garage space. The buffet breakfast had something for anyone's taste and the coffee outstanding!!
We only stayed 1 night but it would be a great place for an extended visit. The living spaces were like a small apartment, very well appointed with all the amenities. Try it you will enjoy!!

...certainly not at this price.

This hotel is a fantastic hotel because it ticks all the necessary elements of a very good hotel:-

1. Excellent location;
2. Excellent value for money;
3. Extremely helpful hotel-keeper;
4. Great breakfast.

This is a very good hotel also because it is just a stone's throw away (about 5 minutes) from all public transport and a 10-minute walk from the shopping area. It is about 15 minutes (20 if you take it really easy) from the centre of Nuremberg.

The hotel-keeper was so nice and accommodating that it was a pity having to say goodbye. The breakfast was very good and nutritious and, needless to say, the room was spotlessly clean and excellently appointed. The interesting part of the room was, definitely, the smiley face on the bathroom fittings. Really cute touch.

The parking is extremely good and free.

I will definitely stay there again when in Nuremberg.
