“Great hotel for business”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

A group of us stayed at the Holiday Inn Nuremberg City Center for a convention at Nuremberg Messe. The location is great, close to lots of restaurants, bars and the U-line; everything is within walking distance. We were at the hotel bar every night (Denise is a great bartender) and met lots of other Americans attending the same show. We were all upgraded to King-size rooms upon arrival (which are actually two twins pushed together), the rooms and bathrooms were very well sized. Only complaint is that an iron/ironing board must be requested, but not really a big issue. The red light district is down the street but can definitely be avoided if it bothers you. Hotel rooms are quiet. Will definitely be staying here again next year; we stayed at another hotel two years in a row, but everyone enjoyed this one much more!

Room Tip: We all booked single rooms, but were upgraded to doubles. We spoke with people that stayed in the an...

I booked this hotel for a colleague and myself as we were visiting Nurnberg for an exhibition.

Having booked and paid for two separate rooms in advance, when checking in I was stunned to hear that the hotel was full and they did not have enough rooms for us.

The manager I spoke with was rude and arrogant and was almost proud to tell me that they overbook the hotel every year for the same exhibition. Not once did he say sorry and in the end, they put is in an apartment and we had to share a room, which is not a big issue as I get on well with my colleague but the way this was dealt with was appalling.

The hotel itself is nice and no issues with that but for me the attitude of staff means a lot and I have to stay in a lot of hotels for work but this was the worst experience I have had in many years and I will never stay at this hotel again.

You will read that it's close to the Red Light District, and indeed it is around the corner, that being said it's legal in Germany and there were no issues. Hotel is bright and freshly renovated, Rooms are large by European standards, bed are comfortable. Breakfast in the morning is excellent. Location is walking distance to the old town.

Room Tip: Walking distance to Nuremberg's old town

This is the first time that I stay in an holiday Inn and feel like a luxury hotel.
Stopped in this hotel by chance. We got a beautiful suite and an excellent treatment. Every was great.
The breakfast was also very good and with a large range of choice.
Will come back for sure when in the area

I have been here several times and I have complained about the availability of internet. It was very costly. This is improved, free wifi now also in the room. Very happy about this.

The service was again very good. That is what I am used to here. I did get a very nice room but that was an upgrade since I am platinum member. The room was basically a double standard room. The standard rooms are already a decent size but this room was very large.

The suite is with an additional separate toilet and does have all the things you need. The mini bar is poorly stocked but is free. (only 2 drinks).

The breakfast is good. They make egg to order if you want and for the rest you can order your own coffee (esspreso f.e.).

Some people complain about the location but when you go out the front go left and you will not be bothered by the redlight district. The hughe advantange of this hotel is that you are in the middle of the city and can walk immidiatly into the center.

Parking is a bit expensive but that happens more often in city centers.

I stayed here for four night stay whilst on some business in the area and was very impressed with the hotel; one of the best Holiday Inn's that I've have stayed in.

The hotel is situated very close to the city centre, just inside the city wall and within short walking distance to the main railway station (10 mins) and U-Bahn station (1 min). There are numerous restaurants all within a short walk of the hotel.

The hotel building seems fairly new, but the design is sympathetic to the local surroundings and blends in well. My room (on the 6th floor), which had a good view of the city wall, had a well appointed bathroom, large bed, flat screen tv, iron, safe and fridge.

Internet access is free - just ask for a code from reception. If you don't have a laptop, there are four computers in the lobby that are free to use.

The breakfast was excellent; a menu with a cooked food selection, plus a buffet with the usual meat, fruit, muesli, yoghurt, bread etc. Even though the breakfast room was busy, service was fast. I think I had a pot of tea within a couple of minutes of sitting down every day.

I only tried the restaurant once in the evening, and while the service was good, I wasn't too impressed with the food. However, this may have just been the dish that I ordered and I would be happy to go back and try something else.

Reception, breakfast and cleaning staff were all friendly and polite. Taxi's can be ordered at reception and arrive from a nearby taxi rank in a couple of minutes.

Yes, this hotel is very close to the red light district, but for people to give this hotel a bad review because of this is completely unfair. Firstly, it's completely legal in Germany. Secondly I walked through the area every evening on my way back to the hotel, and at no point felt uncomfortable or at risk. I think you'd struggle to find a more harmless red light district.

As for one reviewers comment : "The hotel appears to operate as an annex, as the number of comings (sic) and goings. Kept the receptionist busy directing 'nieces' to their uncles", I saw no evidence of this and simply don't believe it.

As the previous reviewer stated: I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Nuremberg.

Room Tip: I stayed on the 6th floor - had a great view of the city wall.

Compared to other properties of the Holiday Inn brand, this one is superb! (Particularly if compared to most of its siblings the UK or the U.S.) Contrary to the comments of some Californian reviewer, the fact that the hotel is located close to the gigantic, ancient city wall and amidst what is left over of a peaceful and absolutely civilized red-light district, the location is great - and absolutely harmless! A 2-minute walk to the downtown all-pedestrian shopping mall, one minute to the Weisses Tor subway station, 10 minutes to Nuremberg's Main Train Station (Hbf) - what more does a tourist or a business traveler want?
Reasonably priced during non-trade show periods, the hotel charges over EUR 250 a night during the big dates! Apparently, this type of road robbery is commonplace among Nuremberg hotels, though.
The lobby is inviting, modern, spacious (for Europe) and very clean. Hallways are also spacious and very clean. The breakfast restaurant sports a nice and inviting buffet where a friendly and professionally caring international staff is always available.
Lunch and dinner are offered in the much smaller bar area which has comfortable dining tables. Despite the bar, families can feel comfortable. Food is not "bar food" at all, but very good. Many good restaurants are within short walking distance.
Rooms are modern, spacious, comfortable and - also - CLEAN! Housekeeping does a consistently good job, as your reviewer has been able to observe over six years of visits. As a Priority Club top tier member he has always been upgraded to the largest available room category, but from visiting standard rooms he can attest to the fact that all rooms give the same positive impression.
Reception staff may not always deserve the label "excellent", particularly when under some pressure, but "very good" is consistently achieved.
Whether your reason to visit Nuremberg is business or leisure, this hotel is highly recommendable! Your reviewer wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when in Nuremberg.

Room Tip: High floors are always more quiet, but not necessary because the area is quiet despite the red-light...
