I understand old town is about a :15 walk from Nuremberg hbf. can you recommend a hotel near the hbf or in between hbf and old town? i';ll be going to Nuremberg the end of April. thanks for your help.
Hotel Victoria, located on Konigstrasse just inside the Frauentor, and across from the Hauptbahnhof, is very nice.
most of the hotels we list in our Germany guidebook will be on or near Konigstrasse. Here are a couple from this guidebook you might consider:
[$$$] Hotel Drei Raben is an artsy and fun splurge, with a super-stylish lobby, 22 comfortable rooms, a huge breakfast buffet (ask for eggs or a cappuccino), and lots of elegant touches. In this “theme hotel” you might get the Dürer room, the soccer room, the toys room, or even the graffiti room (Sb/Db-€120 or €150 depending on size; spacious suites with freestanding bathtubs: Db-€225; non-smoking, air-con, elevator, guest computer, free Wi-Fi, valet parking-€15/day, Königstrasse 63, tel. 0911/274-380, www.hoteldreiraben.de, firstname.lastname@example.org).
[$$] Ibis Altstadt Hotel, sandwiched between a bunch of fast-food joints, offers 61 good-value cookie-cutter rooms in a convenient location (normal rates: Sb-€65-90, Db-€75-100, depending on demand; during Christmas market: Sb-€85, Db-€115; during conventions: up to Sb-€200, Db-€240; extra bed-€25-30; €10/person less if you don't want breakfast, family deals, air-con, elevator, guest computer, expensive Wi-Fi, parking-€11/day, Königstrasse 74, tel. 0911/232-000, www.ibishotel.com, email@example.com).
[$$] Hotel Garni Probst has been run for 65 years by the hardworking Probst family. They rent 45 decent if dated rooms on floors 2-4 of an older apartment building (Ss-€40, Sb-€48-56, Db-€67-75, Tb-€87-93, lower prices generally for summer and on weekends, non-smoking, elevator to third floor, pay Wi-Fi, Luitpoldstrasse 9, tel. 0911/203-433, www.hotel-garni-probst.de, firstname.lastname@example.org).
I hope this helps some.
One of the main gates to the "old town" is actually across the street from the train station. There are numerous hotels around the train station, lots of them fairly new as that area has under gone a redevelopment. I've had good stays at the budget IBIS around the corner, and the business class NH Hotel.
Thank you for your feedback. I am looking at Ibis Hauptbahnof for my 2 night stay in Nuremberg. Although It is a little
less expensive it seems to be clean with good WiFi. I'm not sure if the Ibis mentioned is the same as the Hauptbahnof.
If you have any feedback on this ibis I would love to hear it.
No, I think those are two different Ibises. As people have said, any hotel around the southern end of Koenigstrasse will be close enough to the station to be walkable.
We just stayed at the Ibis Hauptbahnhof and I can highly recommend it. As someone said there are two, the Alstadt one is just inside the gate at the top of the ramp coming out of the train station. If you are inside the center of the train station, the info desk will be behind you and a set of escalastors going down in front of you, you can walk out the front doors directly in front of you, cross the street and then go to the right along the main street. The hotel is across from the gate, tower and wall, in a blue building. The hotel was very clean, everyone very helpful and nice and the free wifi was great. We did not eat breakfast but there is an Aldi just through the gate on the right side, maybe 3-4 doors above the visitors center. There were also several Yorma's, a McD's and BK and bakeries in the station that would be good for a quick or light breakfast. Let me know if you need to know anything else.
Thank you so much for that information. it's nice to know you think very well of it.
