“Does what it says on the tin!”
Reviewed 18 August 2009

You know eactly what you are getting when you book an Etap hotel and this was no exception. The room was clean, comfortable and just what you would expect. However, calling it a 'city' hotel might be pushing it a little. It is well on the outskirts. It is easy to get into the centre, but takes a while. It is a 15 minute walk to the underground and then maybe a 10 minute journey. Very quiet location and interesting in that it has been built onto what is obviously a large horseshoe building built in the Nazi era. If you have the opportunity go to the nearby Rally grounds and documentation centre, well worth it if that period of history interests you.

We stayed at the Etap Nuremberg city for 4 days while visiting family and seeing the city. Convenient to public transportation, but not walking distance to any sights. Clean and in good shape. Not a fancy place, though. The air conditioner is barely adequate, but the windows open to give a good breeze. Not a good idea for families with little kids because the windows open easily and very wide, have no screens and are high up! The shower and bathroom are tiny but adequate. Soap and towels are provided but no washcloths. Beds are firm but clean and comfy with downlike comforters. Free wi-fi is great! I was able to upload photos to the internet easily. The staff is friendly and helpful. If you arrive after 5 p.m., you can check in with the desk. If you arrive between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. (as we did), you can use the credit card you reserved with to automatically check in. However, the elevator only goes to the reception area, and our rooms were higher up, which required a walk up stairs with heavy luggage. Fortunately, the check-in attendant was in the reception area and saw us struggling up the steps. She switched our rooms to ones on the first floor, so no stairs were needed. She also gave us nonsmoking rooms, which we really needed due to health conditions. We really appreciated her help, since we would have been miserable in the smoking rooms assigned by the automated check-in, and neither the automated check-in nor the online booking site gave us the option to request nonsmoking rooms. All in all, a clean budget-priced room. The breakfast is well worth the 6 extra euros charged - good selection of breads, coffee, orange juice, hot chocolate, spreads, cheese, cereal and yogurt.

Having previously stayed at an Etap Hotel and looking for a cheap getaway to Nurnberg, I chose to stay in the Etap Hotel Nurnberg City. I found it very easily having read the directions from the website. The only negative thing about the Etap hotels is that you have to wait between 5 and 7pm to check in. The room was very clean and basic but at only 61 euros for the 2 of us, good value for money. We made the mistake of walking to the U-bahn station instead of taking the bus there. We were off to the Christmas market but from the U-bahn station it was 4 short stops right into the city centre. Would stay there again.

I got lucky and was able to get four nights at the Etap Hotel Nuernberg City during the Nuernberg Toy Show. It is different from most Etap's, by being in a converted office building instead of a new building.

The room was clean, the breakfast was basic, and the parking was free. An internet terminal was 1 euro for 5 minutes. Wifi was availible, but very expensive.

Location is on the B4R ring road, about a ten minute tram ride from downtown. It is a five minute walk to Diannaplatz, which has a Kaufland grocery store and a Tram station. The number 65 bus passes in front of the hotel and takes you to a subway station to get to downtown or the Messe.

The price is normally 43 euros, but during events it goes up to 63 euros, which is still a third of what the other hotels are charging.

I stayed here six years ago, and will stay here in the future if I am lucky enough to get a room during Toy Fair.

We are a family of four and we didn't get lost looking for this hotel. There were "Etap" signs off the autobahn and along the way, small but we saw them. The rooms were clean and comfortable but most of all there was A/C. Parking was no problem, there was pleanty of spaces. The elevator only went up to the 2nd floor. We stayed on the 3rd floor so we had to use the stairs. There were more floors above us.

You do have to take your own shampoo, lotion, etc since the hotel doesn't furnish them. We were very surprised to see that the Fan Fest was not far from the hotel. The bus stop was near the fornt door of the hotel, and in the matter of minutes we were at the fest cheering for our team (USA). Breakfast was extra. Loved the bread, cheese, and juice. The kids were happy to have some cereal. The castle is not far or complicated to get from this location. Thanks Etap!
