The location is good - but that's about it.
It's very noisy and bad value for money, horrible customer service:
I left my luggage at the reception because I couldn't check in on time -when I wanted to pick it up later, it couldn't be found anymore. On the next day the cleaning lady searched for it and found it finally.They didn't even offer me a discount or some compensation - they were just happy to make some cash out of a nice location without investing into clean facilities etc.
I would recommend you not to stay there.

Got to the hotel, which is in the middle of the red light district, went inside, smelt of cigarette smoke, got to our room which was on a lean, there were cigarette buds on the window sill, and the beds were really uncomfortable. Overall a really bad hotel. NOT recommended.....

First, there are a lot of negative reviews about this place and I can see why. The hotel is located on a stretch of road lined with strip clubs and casinos. However, unlike in other parts of the world, this does not suggest the area is unsafe. The hotel is actually perfectly located next to the train station and upscale shops. I stayed on a single night on a Monday when most of the establishments were not busy - noise was not a problem.

Some advice.

1.) If staying on a weekend understand noise probably will be a big problem.
2.) I stayed on a Monday, noise was not a problem.
3.) Hotel is an exception value at 33 euro. Other hotels in the area are 3-4 times as much.
4.) Room was clean and secure. Room had sink, but shower and toilet were available outside hall. Toilet and shower were not attached to room.
5.) I was underwhelmed by breakfast, although they did offer juice, eggs, sausage, and cereal.

Room Tip: If noise is a concern, maybe ask for a room that doesn't face the street?

The location is very-very good if You have 2-3 days for visiting Nuremberg - I had all sightseeings I would like seeing in circle of 1,5 km! The price was only 66 euro for two days staying (incl. breakfast). Rooms are small, but decent. Breakfast are also nice - they have even hot meal - sausages and scrambled egg). The problem is only with all-night-going along corridors as it is a lot of strip bars, casinos just next to the entrance door of the hotel and great number of visitors don't sleep at night time;)). One more important thing - they have no parking place at all (the hotel is situated in the pedestrian area!!!), so if You're traveling by car it's better to find free parking near Theater (near big office building). It's 700 m from the hotel, but otherwise You'll pay 16 euro for 24-hours parking which is only 200 m from hotel:))

This is an old and musty hotel located between a casino and a strip joint, with a night club and a live sex show opposite. Old and dirty and the lift is antique and slow. Obviously meets German fire code but feels dangerous. The location is city centre which is convenient if that's all you need.

This hotel was very plain, nothing special. The location is about two blocks from main train station with lots of restaurants around. Friendly staff. Very little, included in breakfast selection and never ready when they say breakfast is starting. If your looking for less expensive and nothing more, this place is perfect.
