Ibis Nuernberg City am Plaerrer
Ranked #21 of 126 Hotels in Nuremberg
Reviewed 11 November 2011

We were looking for a relatively inexpensive hotel convenient to Nuremberg's Old Town, and this branch of the Ibis fit the bill. (The Ibis that's actually inside the Old Town was full on our dates.) This Ibis is a short (5-minute) cab ride from the main train station: it could have been reached using the U-bahn as well, but on a rainy day, with luggage, and on our first visit to Nuernberg, we decided that the cab made more sense.

Our room (on the Steinbuhler Strasse side) was perfectly acceptable: not huge, but perfectly clean, quiet, and with a decent sized bathroom with good well-pressured shower. Additionally, the room we were given was close enough to the public area of the hotel so that we could use the hotel's WiFi / WLAN without going downstairs to the bar / work area. (Normally you pay extra to use WiFi in the rooms.)

And here's another feature that's worth a mention. Just outside the downstairs lobby bar is a long, high double-sided desk affair with bar stools (three on each side) and lots of power points / outlets, so that you can plug in your computer to work. (Naturally the staff have no problem with you working inside the bar. Additionally, the bar is open 24 hours, which is useful if you need a little snack of something late: all-night food involves a very limited simple menu -- sandwiches, goulash soup, etc -- that's quite good enough for emergencies.)

And now for the exciting part. Due to a change of luggage that meant my husband was not carrying his laptop in the bag he normally uses, neither of us realized on departure that it had inadvertently been left behind on a chair after unplugging from its charger. The staff, however, found the laptop immediately on starting to service the room, locked it away in secure storage, and started trying to contact my husband. (Unfortunately the calls were going to our home number rather than to his mobile, so now we've learned a new lesson for the future: make sure to provide a mobile access number as well as the one associated with your credit card when booking.)

When my husband realized that he was missing his laptop, he called the hotel and was carefully instructed by the staff on what he had to do to recover the computer (make sure you have ID with you when you arrive, be able to confirm the number of the room you were staying in, bring your room receipt with you, etc). They were quite concerned to make sure that the computer was reunited with the person who really owned it. This kind of careful, courteous and (above all) honest behavior would bring us back to the hotel again even if we hadn't already decided we would be coming back because of the simple but well thought out amenities for business travelers. I shudder to think what the outcome of this situation might have been in some other countries or cities I could name.

Anyway, the Ibis Centrum is absolutely recommended -- and not least for the low price and how much you get for it in an almost-city-center hotel.

Room Tip: Nothing to suggest.

You just have to cross the street and you reach the old city. Very friendly personnel, we had a quick dinner at the hotel too. Buffet breakfast, good as usual at the Ibis.
The bathroom was a bit too small for my taste.

Room Tip: The elevators seem to get busy on breakfast time (restaurant at level 1), so it is handy to have a r...

The location was perfect near the railway station and the old city. The room was clean. I bought breakfast buffet (5,50e a day) which was good value. Also I had wireless Internet connection (3 EUR/24 hours) which was fast and without problems. The personnel was friendly and helped in what-ever you had to ask.

I would definitely take the same hotel when returning to Nuremberg, because it was very good value and location.

This hotel is in a "okay" area of town and has underground paid parking (8 euros a day). There is a supermarket nearby but the area is questionable with lots of guys just hanging out near the casino/market area drinking with no other ambition in mind. The other downside is that breakfast isn't included and wifi is only in the lobby unless you pay extra. The front desk was helpful in suggesting local restaurants.

Easy to find and not too far to old town square, flat easy walking about 10 minutes or so -very clean and friendly, room a good size but for some reason 2 single quilts on one big bed - bit strange but the bed was comfortable. Very quiet hotel, heard no noise from corridors at all. Good value for money and the food was good quality and not expensive.

Usual Ibis standard - room ok, bed quite comfortable. Only gripes would be bathroom was very small and the two twin beds were that close they were like one bed. They also charged extra for a room based on twin rather than sole occupancy - most hotels it's the same price for two people? If travelling around other than in Nuremberg, the other two Ibis hotels in the centre of town are much easier for the main train station.
