Built nearly 125 years ago, Deutscher Kaiser offers few modern amenities. There are no automatic doors or magnetic keys. You have to manually lock your room and hand over the bulky metallic key at the reception when you go out. But step out of the hotel and you will realize that you are staying at the right place. The historic old town of Nuremberg, paved all the way from the main railway station to the imposing Imperial Castle, with its granite buildings, museums, churches, the confusing maze of strasses and strabes, the platzes lined with shops, restaurants with their endless rows of bistros, Bavarian beauties hanging out with obnoxious jerks … Deutscher Kaiser puts you in the center of all the best that Nuremberg offers.
But old world, charming and quaint come with a few inconveniences. The rooms are small, bathrooms smaller. The shower stall measures 24 in x 24 in. You can’t even rub your back without literally hitting the glass doors. There is no air conditioning in the standard room, not even a fan, heating is by steam radiators. During summer the rooms can get quite warm at night but you have to keep the windows tightly shut. Things can get pretty noisy with partying youths on the pavements. But they do offer a good spread for breakfast. Great coffee, much better than the Columbian muck or the Seattle slop that passes for coffee in the US. The hotel staff is extra friendly and went out of their way to find vegetarian friendly restaurants for me.
