I stayed at Design Hotel Vosteen this past weekend for a visit back to my "roots" in Nuremburg. The hotel was an adorable, small, mid-century inspired inn that was cool enough to be a boutique but cozy enough to make you feel at home.
Before I arrived, I was emailed and asked what I would like for breakfast. Talk about service! They provided, within reason, most everything I asked for. They also have this really fancy coffee machine, that is all automated, and available for you to have whenever you'd like. They also have water and fruit available for hungry travelers. There are snacks and wine/beer available for purchase, all on the honor system.
The hotel is in the middle of a block, but the exterior is yellow, making it easy to see (that is, if you do not come in at night!) I opted for their garage parking because I had a rental and didn't want it damaged. I left the car in the garage the whole weekend and it was perfectly fine. I didn't see a lot of street parking, which was a downside for those who otherwise travel in by car. Otherwise, the hotel is right outside the old city wall. If you are standing at the front door, you simply turn left and then right, and you will run into the wall. It is a five minute walk to Kaiserberg Castle and you could literally walk from the Castle to the Opera House in 30 minutes (covering the span of the old town part of the city). Theoretically, you could also take the train to get into Nuremburg and take a taxi to the hotel. It wouldn't be that much (10-15 mins?) and you could avoid the parking situation.
The room was SPOTLESS, smelled lovely, and was decorated very cute! It was a nice retreat to come home to after sightseeing all day! Also, I got Haribou gummy bears on my pillow :) The only complaint I have is that the sheets could be softer (such a shame for such a comfortable bed with a cozy blanket!) and the towels as well.
Overall, it was a pleasant stay at the hotel. If it weren't for the odd parking situation and the linens, I would give it a 5.
