Within the main city walls of Nuremberg, this hotel is at the south-west end which is away from the central station (Hauptbahnhof) and main shopping districts within the city walls (east end and centre). By train, the U-bahn (underground/subway) connects to the Hauptbahnhof, with Weißer Turm the second station on the U1 and U11 lines, and which is only a short distance away from the hotel. Cafes and restaurants are nearby, and the rest of the central distinct, main cathedral and Christmas markets is a short walk away (10-15 minutes).
FRONT OF HOUSE SERVICE:
Staff throughout the hotel were very pleasant and helpful. As we arrived very early in the day, the room was not ready on arrival, but we were offered to sit down and the room was made available earlier.
We were in an apartment room in the hotel. These are a little further away but offer a generous amount of space, kitchenette (mini fridge, cooktop, microwave, kettle), iron and nice furnishings. Beds were single beds as is typical for Europe. The room had beds with a comforter on top of a sheet, chairs, table, ottoman, wardrobe, luggage stand and mini-fridge with a large LCD tv in a rotating entertainment unit - very comfortable! The Holiday Inn pillow menu is available. The room colours were an attractive gold/orange theme.
A child's bed was required, but was not able to be booked in the reservation and pricing would not show availability when entered. However, it is possible and the reservation centre or hotel staff are able to organise this.
The bathroom had a bath, shower, large mirror and toilet, also with attractive finishings. The shower head was an adequate height. Toiletries were supplied in individual Holiday Inn packaging. (See pictures.)
They are above an entry on another street (Ottostrasse). One convenience tip would be for the room security keys to be operational at this entry - I asked about this but they said that they didn't do that. However you can exit from this side doorway which is quicker when heading to the rest of the city.
Pastries are available for a limited time in the day at check-in with coffee and tea. A hub of computers with internet and office applications, plus a printer connected was available near reception (although internet was often down while there). Wifi was not included. Two bicycles are also available for use - a very nice extra!
DINING: A good American style breakfast buffet is available 7-11 a.m., but at extra cost of 15E per person/day.
A pleasant, and very conveniently located hotel in Nuremberg. While there was room for improvement, these areas were tiny details. The hotel was one of the best on our trip!
