Nürnberg (or area) Airport Hotels

It has been my custom (heretofore in Frankfurt) to spend my last night in my beloved Germany at a hotel close to the airport, so that I can shuttle-bus in and not have the "Sturm und Drang" of getting up at ungodly hours, catch a Taxi, catch a train, etc. In short, just be a cool guy and get on my airplane as relaxed as I can be. So do any of you have a recommendation for a nice hotel in the vicinity of the Nürnberg Flughafen? I tend to "treat" myself on the last night "home", so let's pretend that money is no object, okay? (Of course if it goes to over 150 Euros a night, of course it would be.... LOL!)

Thanks very much as always!

Don't know about airport hotels, but in my experience travelling from central Nuremberg to the airport is not hard at all. The airport's only five miles from the city centre, and the U-Bahn trip is only about 15 minutes. If you're staying in the city at all, I think moving from one hotel to another will be far more hassle than travelling to the airport in the morning.

Thanks very much, Phillip. That's good info indeed. Now at least I know a little more about the "layout" of the surroundings. When I spent my last night (s) in Frankfurt, I'd often have to stay outside of town, so no Hard Rock Cafe. etc..... Luckily, they had a shuttle to the airport.

Thank you, sir!

I don't know how this discussion about Nürnberg airport hotels morphed into a tirade about Frankfurt airport hotels, but I have to agree with Mary that hotels at the airport are grossly overpriced, and you can do a lot better with a close, but no at, hotel.

For my case, I have always spent the last night before leaving from FRA in Mainz, the last time at Hotel Königshof, with which I was very satisfied. However, looking at the website for Excelsior, I might consider it for my next time leaving early from FRA.

cough...... Well, I did say I like to treat myself on the last night and have a nice unhurried, hassle-free morning. In addition, my dementia has caused me to become, shall we say, "navigationally challenged", and simpler is better, as I'll be travelling on my own in September.

Thanks!
