    The wifi was virtually not working. It would take up to 10 minutes for a page to load. I was supposed to use it for work and couldn't, I had to use my own phone data and create a hotspot for my laptop

    The room was clean and they let us check in 2 hours before the regular checkin time.

    Can't really say anything here. Didn't experience any problems.

    A great place to spend the night or even a longer stay if you're planning to stay in Nurenberg for a while. The metro is close by and the surroundings are to die for. The rooms are quite nice, normally equipped with the amenities you need.

    Some rooms are better than others. Ours was spacious, but each of the twin beds were beneath a sloping roof. We pulled them out a little at night to avoid bumping our heads. Another standard room we saw seemed cramped.

    Excellent breakfast. It is extremely convenient for public transport (metro) into the City. The system needs no drivers, guards or station staff! Buying the right ticket can be a challenge, but once you get to the city Centre you can get travel cards from the Information Bureau

    Nothing springs to mind

    Great location, and it was in a leafy residential area with a Tube station not more than 10 minutes away. The room was quiet and clean. Next door was an excellent restaurant - we ate their twice.... The prices were very reasonable. The staff were very friendly, and luckily for us, one of them was from Weymouth (UK) and was able to understand my detailed questions regarding the 'TUBE' (I rarely use public transport, so had lots of questions!) It was a perfect way to get into the city and took 15 minutes! The reception had day passes for the tube. I would stay again

    We used this hotel for an overnight stay, it served its purpose. Used as a transit hotel, it’s fine but I wouldn’t fancy staying there for long. There’s an old part and a new part, we got the old part. Small room with twin beds despite booking a double. We pushed them together. There’s nothing special about the hotel, there are no additional facilities and it’s overpriced because of this.

    The breakfast was excellent value for money. Five euros was extremely good value for what we had.

    A nice change from chain hotels.
    • Business trip

    • Comfort Double Room
    • Stayed 3 nights

    It would have been good if the hotel had an automated check-in. A large group came in before me and I had to wait for the reception to deal with each guest individually. Rather than enter into the computer during busy periods, take the details on paper and enter them once things quieten down - although a quick, automated check-in would be better better or at a push have everything prepared and rooms allocated in advance to speed things up.

    Staff were very welcoming, breakfast was cheap and the selection very good for the cost. Clean, tidy rooms. Good value compared to other hotels during the event season. In a quiet area, no major traffic noise, a great family hotel on public transport routes.

    Room was very noisy although said to be quiet. No change possibility (asked) as fully booked hotel. No discount offered, nor breakfast for compensation. Price per night was terrible because of exhibition time. Usually this kind of oldish room is half cheaper, including breakfast.

    Staff was nice and friendly. Good connection to city centre and great to airport (only few minutes). The room was kept clean and the towels were changed.

    The check-in procedure. For such a modern hotel checking in was like being back in East Germany before the wall came down. We had 2 double rooms and all 4 of us had to fill in a registration card and have our passports photocopied. The receptionist then had to type all our details into the computer. It took 10-15 minutes to check-in; not impressed
