A&O Nürnberg Hauptbahnhof

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

When I first booked it, I was deceived by its closeness to the Hauptbahnhof since I needed to leave the next early morning. Even though the room appeared to be clean, when I woke up I noticed a few insect stings on my arms and just thought it was something random: I couldn't be more wrong... In fact during the following days after my stay I had a bad allergic reaction with severe itching that still today is bothering. The diagnosis of "insect stings" probably bed bugs, was given by a doctor so it's not just an impression. Furthermore, I read that other customers experienced the same thing (I wish I had read those reviews before staying there). I travelled many times and stayed in all sorts of accommodations, from hotels to hostels and never had any kind of issue. I will never go there again and suggest the hotel staff to investigate on this matter because things could have gone worse. When I travel I want to feel safe and enjoy my time abroad, not fight against something I'm not responsible for.

It was way to hot in the room and the noise from the street kept waking everyone up. The railing on the top bunk bed was too small so i can't recommend it for people staying with children. The room and toilet was not clean. There were only 4 parking spaces and they were taken so we had to leave the car 2 blocks away. I wish i had spent a little more and stayed in one of the many other hotels in the area. Glad it was only one night.

Location is good near the main station. Just stayed a night on a single private room and it was clean, as well as the toilet, beds are comfortable.the room could be bigger. Big window and good view. Nice staff and really good buffet breakfast with everything!

The positives: a convenient location for walking into the old city and a somewhat low price. But the facility was bare-bones at best, with a staff that consistently showed they didn't really care. If the reading lights by the beds are burned out, that's just too bad. It's a non-smoking facility--but as you enter and exit, expect to have to walk through groups of people smoking just outside the doors. The facility attracts large groups, so don't be surprised for long waits to check in or check out. There are other hotels in the same neighborhood; check them out.

I'm staying here at the moment and I'm impressed by how clean and quiet the room is. The staff is friendly. The hotel is very well located near central underground station. Everything can be reached by walking. I would definitely stay again.

Like I say , better than outside . Even a 2 star hotel should have the rooms heated in february . We take 3 rooms and in all of them the windows does not close well. Wehaveto take extrablanckets toputin the windows for isolation. The position is very good so they shoul do something about comfort .

Infested with bed bugs, sustained hundreds of bites all over my body. Informed staff on check out who knew about the problem and said they would go in 48hrs. Was told to contact management via email who were very dismissive and accused me of getting the bites elsewhere and refused a refund. Disgusting hostel and disgusting management.

Solid location. Room was clean,as toilet also. At the bed was clean towel for every person at room,and it was free charge for using. Rooms and whole hotel are maybe ready for some adaptation or interior refreshing. Beer from fridge,near reception cost around 3.8 eur ,what is very expensive. There are also desktop PCs near reception,you have to pay fee for using.

Payed 386€ voor 2 nights with breakfast. Breakfast buffet, but no scrambled eggs, no bacon, soupe. Room : a table, a chair and two single beds. Shower : 1 big room with integration of the toilet in the shower. I took pictures, but cannot upload them here. Next year a booking right across the street in the new Novotel where I went to diner (no poss in my own hotel). Worst hotel-experience ever (and I'm on hotel every week for business). Oh yes, I forgot....the screen of my phone was bigger then the one of the TV on the room. I watched football on my Galaxy.

We stayed in a room with a double bed and were very happy with the amenities here. The bathroom was clean and the beds were very comfortable.The wifi was very fast compared to some other hostels. There was some noise from the street but closing the windows mostly solved that. we didn't hear a peep from the other rooms or hallways. The only bad thing was that service could be quite slow - we stood for about 10 minutes at the bar while the guy behind it was talking to someone and didn't even look in our direction. While we were waiting to check in we had to wait 20 minutes even though there was only one person in front of us, though when we did check in it took about 2 minutes. Also breakfast was a bit expensive so we opted to just go to nearby bakeries in the morning.
