This is definitely a split-personality type hotel. There are the good, the reasonable and the downright ugly aspects.
Here are the good points. Interesting old building well positioned in Nuremberg's old town and near restaurants bars and the main station. Nice staff.
Now the reasonable. I had reserved a deluxe room that is best described as a normal room. Fair sized bed and bathroom. Bavarian décor style (nothing wrong with that) room fridge, kettle etc etc. The room was right in the roof so was quiet but on one side of the bed the eaves slopped down very close to the bed so best to remember to get out of bed on the right side.
Breakfast was just about OK but no decaff available for those that need it and the scrambled egg was stone cold and pretty solid. Staff were friendly but the whole breakfast experience is best described as functional.
Now the ugly. Right above my bed directly over my head was a very large ornate mirror that was hanging out from the wall. Inspection should that it was secured (wrong word) with some twisted wiring. It did not look safe and I decided that I would not sleep with the mirror of Damocles hanging g over my head so it took it down. Glad I did because the top of it was encrusted with dirty old dust.
The next problem was that night all the lights in the room failed. Something had activated the circuit breaker box down the hallway. The staff soon fixed it but told me the box controlled all the rooms on that floor so it could have been an electrical fault in any of the rooms that had deprived me of lighting. Take a torch if you stay in this hotel.
Would I stay here again? No, there are a lot of hotels in Nuremberg to choose from and I will be trying one of those.
