Excellent location, Very Clean, Very comfortable

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Tony R Couples - 12/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

A short walk from the train station through a tunnel takes you to this Ibis on the edge of the old town. Information centre is just across the road. We found the room quite spacious compared to other Ibis we have stayed. Queen bed was very comfortable. The ladies on the reception desk were pleasant. Definately recommend and the city of Nuremberg.

Great place to discover the Christmas Fare

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

myronzabigaylo Family - 26/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

Great location for visiting Christmas Fare, only 10 min walking. All of the other city attractions are very close. The hotel is small but very cozy, rooms are well maintained and clean. Team members are pretty nice and hospital.

Good Choice for Christmas Markets

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

cynRtravel Couples - 08/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

This hotel is in the "budget" category but not cheap for US with the stronger euro. It is not fancy but there are some things we really liked about it. It is located right in the Old Town area so it is quite picturesque to walk around. It is about a 10 minute walk to where the main Christmas Market is and another 10 minutes further on to the old castle area. That said, there are market vendors all along the street toward the main market. The Nuremberg Christmas Market is one of the most popular and it is very crowded. If you go and are there at the hotel on a Saturday night it can be very noisy along the street side, so ask for a room on the other side. We were on the street side (so we learned about this the hard way) but on the other hand we like our view from there and noise wasn't a problem other nights. The staff are friendly and helpful. The housekeeping staff took away a bag that had some foods we were traveling with (it was sitting near the trash can) and when we discovered it the staff went to extraordinary efforts to recover it, which in fact they did. Explanations and apologies; they were very kind-hearted. The breakfast room is roomy and cheerful with a pleasant staff. The coffee machine has variety and the foods were standard (that's not bad!) and replenished as needed. An extra that we had at no other hotel on this Christmas Markets of Germany trip was a waffle maker machine. Yummy. The one thumbs-down was that the scrambled eggs and boiled eggs were hard. Too bad or otherwise good breakfast. Another wonderful benefit of this hotel is its closeness to the train station. Completely walkable; and underground passage goes under the busy street outside the front of the train station. Just head for the very large tower.

right in the heart of the city

the ibis altstadt is excellently located just outside the U metro station straight from the airport without any transfer;the Hauptbanhof main train station is vey close too;the tram station is in between so location is perfect to go anywhere and the hotel is very comfortable,

ezginingezegeni Solo travel - 19/11/2019 TripAdvisor review

The location was perfect.4 min by foot to the main train station and it just located in heart of the city. The room smells like someone's smoking inside. I think this smell comes from the ventilation/heating. In the night the guests next door made a lot of noise, so that disturbs me in my sleep.

Worst management

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Harmandirsahib Family - 07/11/2019 TripAdvisor review

The worst managed Accor hotel I have stayed at in my last 10 years. The owner forced us to stay for one night . This despite the fact - that I had informed at check in that I may leave one day earlier. I was told no problem. I again informed the hotel 36 hour before departure - but no response. Subsequently the manager even wrote to me - saying I never requested an earlier check out. Later she apologized. As a gold member I was give a loft - perhaps what they call an upgrade - and when you sit on your bed your head hits the roof .

Very efficient and suitable for business visits

This hotel has a very good localisation in the historical center of the city. The staff was nice and helpful. The room is very clean. It was an amazing experience for our family.We are going to stay there in our next visit in Nuremberg. I absolutely recommend the hotel.

good for the price

Curious38038680879 Family - 05/06/2019 TripAdvisor review

Good value for money, except for the breakfast which at 12E is overpriced. It is better to have breakfast at one of the many places outside. Very good location. Bar very small, but there is a Kellar just outside

Phil D Friends getaway - 28/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

Loved this hotel, very central in the old town, lovely room and good service, and nice free chocolates on reception, would stay here again , price was good too, and near to all the nightlife and Nurembergs finest kebab house.

Great little place overall

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

RicE72 Couples - 21/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

Great little place overall - position couldn't've been more convenient for the station, trams and buses. Small entrance between a burger bar and an Irish pub that's easy to miss. Arrived early, so they looked after our luggage till check in time; room wasn't massive, but perfectly adequate, clean and tidy. On the sixth floor at the rear, away from the street, but unfortunately staff from the neighbouring establishments stood outside and smoked/drank/yelled. Not the hotel's fault. Some slight confusion with the key cards, only one of which would work, but staff were friendly, multilingual and helpful. Breakfast is great if included in your deal, but not worth €12 if paid separately. Will be back

Great location but that's it.

travellingspice Family - 18/01/2019 TripAdvisor review

Location is fabulous - close to station and Christmas markets, main shopping strip. Service was pretty dismal and rudimentary. Rooms are basic.Very easy to get around Nuernberg. Great city to explore.

so, so...

Culture07751045083 Couples - 16/12/2018 TripAdvisor review

Location of Hotel is fine, reception a bit on and off. They were reparing our room door and the receptionist apparently didn't know it... We had to change to another room. Otherwise room ok, ibis standard. Breakfast was really not very good. The bread was at least two das old and hard, coffee not freshly brewed as in other ibis. I guess this hotel is franchised and not managed by ibis! As a comparison: we also stayed one night at ibis budget in Zurich West: was absolutely perfect, breakfast better than ever...and much cheaper!

What a joyful hotel - quiet from the crowds, easy walking distance to the train station. And perfect walking distance to downtown. Our stay was lovely - easy check in and out. Comfortable bed, hot water....I would stay here again!

Trail43776064535 Couples - 12/11/2018 TripAdvisor review

Fantastic location within the old town and minutes away on foot from the city's excellent transportation systems. It was a dream to fly in to Nuremberg and simply catch the underground to get into the city, 15 minutes, no changes. The underground and the mainline railway stations are linked within the pedestrian underpass near the Ibis.All the reception desk staff were extremely helpful, including recommendations for eating places.Only one problem with the hotel's location is that it's above an Irish pub, so it you are allocated a room at the front and have your windows open, be prepared for some merry-making noise! But for us it was worth any disruption to be so close to the big central market and all the wonderful historic buildings (and on return requested a back room!). Can also recommend the Germanisches National Museum nearby, and there's a huge contemporary arts gallery more or less behind the hotel. Breakfast buffet excellent, with plenty of choices. We stayed 2 nights, travelled elsewhere, then returned for another night, to a different room. The bed in the first room was not so comfortable, but in the second room, was up to the usual standard. But I'm sure if we'd asked for a change of room at the beginning, the staff would have obliged, if possible.

Nurnburg Altstadt - Sunday 7th October 2018.

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Ian S Friends getaway - 11/10/2018 TripAdvisor review

A typical IBIS hotel, which I would normally give a rating of very good. Why have I marked it down?, well two points, the lift was out of action due to water damage caused by a guest and I was on the third floor, and seccondly I paid on arrival with cash, yet my credit card was also debited, requiring a call to Accor hotels customer care line when I arrived back home. Other than that, a typical IBIS hotel, good staff, good room and value for money. Would certainly use them again.

Very mixed stay (for several visitors)

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Val4SouthYorkshire Friends getaway - 10/10/2018 TripAdvisor review

Of the 4 rooms in my bookings only 2 were incident free. After the water was turned of from 9-4pm one day, then the hotel suffered a flood on 2 floors causing the power to off in several rooms. Therefore one of my rooms had to be evacuated and relocated in the other Ibis. On top of all that the lift broke! therefore for our remaining stay of 2 days we got very fit climbing up and down to level 5. Wont bother with Altstadt anymore, will only book the other ibis in Nuremberg as its newer.

Apt Hotel for Business stay

abhijitnatoo Business - 01/10/2018 TripAdvisor review

Location very prominent.Clean rooms, Friendly staff, express check in /check out. Biggest advantage proximity to railway station at walkable distance. Decent shopping and Food joints around. ALDEE shopping outlet bang opposite. Basic items needed in vicinity. Food options and Breakfast variety can be better.

Day trip heaven

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

amasajay Solo travel - 09/09/2018 TripAdvisor review

Due to its proximity to Nuernberg's Hauptbahnhof, a rail hub which is a five minute walk away, it is is an excellent location for day trips via DB. I took 4 of the latter during my week long stay there. It is clean, affordable, with a friendly, helpful staff.

Excellent value for money...

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

Richard v Family - 19/08/2018 TripAdvisor review

Clean and modern rooms that offer excellent value for money, with a 24 hr front desk. The hotel is in the center of Nuremberg near the train station. We didn't have breakfast because to our opinion 14 euro is a bit much.
