When we stayed in Nuernberg last December, we were travelling 'en famille' (with parents, kids and grandparents in tow) and so wanted to find a family-friendly apartment.
This three roomed apartment (with separate kitchen and bathroom) is excellent value for money and very well located for the railway station and trams, as well as only being a short walk into the old town. It has two bedrooms, plus additional beds in the lounge - allowing it to sleep a total of six - and is modern, clean and genuinely self catering, with a decently equipped kitchen. Also - very important for visitors to the Christkindlmarkt - even in the depths of a very snowy period, it was toasty warm!
It is on the ground floor, which may suit older people or those travelling with small kids (and all the paraphernalia that this entails). There is also some street parking in the surrounding area although not necessarily right in front of the apartment.
The street has a couple of small Turkish supermarkets, but if you're looking for more typically carnivorous German fare, buy your basic supplies when you're out and about.
The lady who runs this does insist on cash upfront. This caused some confusion, as the booking was in our name but my parents (who travelled directly from the UK and met us in Nuernberg) arrived before we did and had a bit of a run in with her when she demanded her money in a less than diplomatic manner. Maybe we caught her on a bad day - and also there was definitely a language issue, as her English is fairly basic - but best to clarify this to avoid misunderstandings.
The website listed is absolutely excellent for finding all sorts of accommodation in Nuernberg. Other than being able to book online - always a bonus - one thing that I really like is that it includes a calender indicating availability at a glance, so you can immediately narrow down your options and don't end up pinning your hopes on accommodation that is unavailable for the period you're interested in.
I asked for a quiet room and we got it. It was quiet even with the window left ajar for the night. Cold breakfast was sufficient. The only hot item was the boiled egg, and the coffee, of course.
24-hour desk service, the young woman speaks english and was very helpful.
I highly recommend this hotel.
There is parking underground for €12 a day. Breakfast was included in the room rate. Also included is the free use of the sauna and gym, although we did not have the time to use these facilities. Neither did we avail ourselves of the Wireless- LAN 60 minutes free per day.
The hotel is modern. The room was large with a separate nook for closet and an ironing board. Bed was comfortable.
I was just for one night in Jugend-hotel and we had dinner and breakfast there. Jugend-hotel is near airport and not too close to the center of town. If you use public transport you'll need to walk for about 15 min to hostel (I haven't try but don't recommend you to do that). Next to hostel is fire station (in a case you decide to make barbecue lol). Hostel looks good inside, rooms and bathroom are neat. I didn't like the dinner (some meat, cabbage..), but the breakfast was normal (self service; bread, honey, cheese, butter, ham, milk, coffee, tea...). In the rooms you have towels so you don't need to order them and pay for it on the reception (I did that coz I didn't know that we have them; one towel is one euro).
Jugend-hotel is surrounded by wood, inside the hotel is neat but have some strange smell because of old building.
Very convienient with free train rides to the city. Can be expensive when an event is on in town.
Walk across from the airport.
Smart 3* hotel in the pedestrianised part of the old city. Rooms are very modern and comfortable with breakfast included. Unusually not a buffet, choose from the menu in the cafe downstairs, portions are huge! recommended.
Pfalzer Hof, Hotel Garni is located near the old town,it's quite basic but clean. Built on 3 floors with a communal bathroom on each floor, tv in each (small) room. The staff are friendly although the ones I saw didn't speak English.
We didn't stay here, but it looked extremely cool, so we picked up info in case we are here again. This hostel is in the medeival part of the city and has big shared rooms, but also private rooms for about $25.
Nearby lots of nightlife and great attractions
This here is the 'Kaiserstallung'. It was a granary in the past, but now it's a Youth Hostel. i didn't stayed in it, but it's directly nexto the castly.
