I don't know what is going on in Nuremberg but it has been quite challenging to find a hotel for a full week. This one was pretty much the only option available (in my corporate tool).
I had done a bit of homework (tripadvisor) and had not set my expectations too high. Even if it is marketed as a four stars hotel, simply consider it has three.
It looks as well as if they are messing around with their room prices. According to my tool, I should have paid around 140E/night. That would have been way to expensive for the quality provided. At the end, they charged me around 80E a night which is definitely more appropriate.
The hotel is not located in the historical center but it is 2 minutes walk from the castle. However that castle being located on the top of a hill, that means you first have to climb up to there and then walk down to the old town. Definitely a good exercise on the way back from the restaurant after a heavy dinner!
Unique Quality: The room is rather spacious but poorly furnished. The furniture really look cheap and the carpet seems to date from the sixties. However the bed was still rather comfortable, maybe the most important point.
The bathroom is ok but think about carrying your own shampoo, they don't provide any! Instead there is this huge bottle of a gel they claim fit both the body and the hairs.
There was also a small balcony, could be nice in summer but in the winter I had no use for it!
Wireless Internet access is available but not via Ipass, you always have to request a temporary account to the reception (maximum 24h). Quite annoying but the staff was always helpful.
For 15E, you can have access to the breakfast buffet. The restaurant room is indeed quite small and I can easily believe this would create some issues when the hotel is full. However that was not the case and I could always easily find a table. The buffet was ok, looks like part of it was home-cooked, but nothing exceptional. Little warm option (apparently not always the same), some danish pastries, fruit salad,...
Nice to note a French paper was available (Le Monde), in this mostly German speaking environment, that was a nice touch.
There is also an ATM available on the street next door.
