AZIMUT Hotel Nuremberg

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It is a very simple hotel at Nuremberg, but the location is good. It is in a quiet place, but near the city wall. Very near the hotel there is a bio supermarket where we ate out breakfast (very good!). The room was simple but good, with a frigobar. It was a little hot as it does not have air-conditioned. Staff is nice.

I stayed 1 night at May 30. Nuremberg is messe city and most of the days of the year hotels are very busy. You have to very pay very high rates for average hotels. It would be better to check other opportunities at Erlangen or Fürth however they are also fully booked. My aim was only to sleep in a clean room on a comfortable bed and it was okay in general. On the other hand it was a hot day in Nüremberg, 30C even in May and room was very hot. My room was at floor on garden side and towards direct sunlight after midday. When I proceed the room at 19:00 pm inside was like sauna. There is no air conditioner in the room and the only opportunity is to sleep with open window and balcony door. Reaching the room is a quite difficult, you use the main elevator to go to floor and after walking 50-60 meter you get on another one to reach floor then again walk. If you have excess luggage you need to ask a closer room. Cleanliness is not bad and room was quite big with french bed. There is a minibar with only limited drinks. Wifi is very slow and difficult to work with. Location is good, you can walk to center in 10 minutes if you have a good orientation. Underground parking is available by paying 10€ per day. Breakfast is extra around 15€ and variety of food and drinks sufficient.

I rarely ever write reviews...I think I've written three in all. But I am so angry/disappointed by my experience at this hotel, that I felt compelled to write. This was probably the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. To be honest, I'm utterly shocked that it has a 3-star rating. It's a 2-star AT BEST. I'm not sure why there are so many nice reviews here. But please take the time to really read all the'll see a disturbing pattern emerging. If I can convince even ONE person to book elsewhere, then I know I would've done society a favor. Here are the reasons why: 1) Dirty rooms - it is painfully obvious that the housekeepers just make the bed and change the towels (if you've placed them on the floor). In addition, and most disturbing, the rooms are not thoroughly cleaned after guests checkout. We found cigarette butts in the ashtray, urine stains on the toilet, dirty water stains on the faucet, hair on the floor, some weird brown stain on the soap dispenser, etc. Please see attached pics. 2) Misleading information on the hotel's website. It's a tourist trap! This hotel promises things they cannot deliver. We had booked a "Junior Suite." On the website, it says that the room has a balcony, a kitchenette, and approximately 47.5 sq meters of space. What a joke! First of all, there is no furniture on the balcony. That means that you can't really sit on your balcony and enjoy it. You'd have to sit on the dirty ground. Secondly, the room is not 47.5 sq meters! I live in a 50 sq foot apartment in Hannover, Germany, and it's absolutely impossible that this "Junior Suite" is almost the same size. Thirdly...this kitchenette. After checking in, I realized that our promised kitchenette was missing in our room. I noticed that there was a locked door, though, and my partner mentioned that the kitchenette may actually be in there. We went down to the lobby and asked the front desk where our kitchenette was, and that we thought there should be one, since the website mentions it under the "Junior Suite" description. The young lady just shrugged her shoulders and said "Well, if the door is locked, that means you don't have a kitchenette." Surprised, I asked her whether they had Junior Suites without kitchenettes. She responded "All I know is that if it's locked, you don't have access. I don't know any more than that, and you'll have to wait to speak with the night manager." So we waited patiently while the night manager spent 15 minutes on the phone (as the lobby got more and more crowded with people wanting to check in or pick up their hotel keys. By the way, each time you leave the hotel, you have to hand in your key. When you get back and want your key back, you may have to wait a considerable amount of time to get your key back). When he finally gave us his attention, we repeated our question, and he responded, clearly annoyed, "Well, did you make a request when you booked that you wanted to use the kitchenette?" I said no, we didn't know we had to, since the website makes it seem as though all Junior Suites have kitchenettes and nowhere is it mentioned that we need to pre-arrange this. He scoffed at us and said, "So you just assumed you didn't need to let us know because you saw it on the website. Ok...well, I can leave a note for housekeeping to unlock the door for you tomorrow morning. Although, I'm not sure why you really want to use it. There aren't any plates or utensils. Also, there may be an additional charge for using the kitchenette. I'm not entirely sure though." An EXTRA charge to use something that should ALREADY be supplied, as promised by the room description??? When housekeeping finally unlocked the door the next day, it was so filthy in there, that we never ended up using it. 3) Internet - EXTREMELY slow internet is offered for free. But it's so ridiculously slow, that you won't be able to do anything online, let alone work. They do offer high-speed internet for a fee...7€ per day. In my opinion, internet should be available in hotels nowadays, without having to pay extra fees. 4) No air-conditioning - the room can get extremely warm. Makes it difficult to sleep. 5) Extremely uncomfortable beds. Very soft, you feel like you're laying in a hammock. 6) Rude staff - due to the mentioned reasons, my partner and I actually checked out of the hotel TWO NIGHTS EARLY. I couldn't imagine spending any more time at this hotel than the 1 night we did. As I was going through the check out process, without any provocation, the front desk lady began to give me a lecture about how I couldn't get any of my money refunded to me because I had booked through and not directly with them. I hadn't even asked her for a refund or my money back! I was already depressed with the knowledge that I had booked a non-refundable fare. But her attitude was entirely unnecessary. And the cherry on top? After checking in and realizing the free internet was a joke, i had bought high-speed internet for 2 days for 14€. The front desk even refused to refund 7€ for the day that I wouldn't even be there to use the internet. What a joke! If you do choose this hotel, buy the internet one day at a time. 7) I also found it strange that the front desk didn't ask why I was checking out early. I didn't expect that they would pry or demand personal details...but I would think that it's odd when customers leave after the 1st night, when they've reserved for 3 nights. I would at least ask if everything was ok or whether we'd had a pleasant stay. Nothing. They don't seem to care about their guests at all. This experience really put a damper on our vacation. We ended up driving to Rothenburg ob der Tauber and booking another hotel there for the remainder of our vacation. What a wonderful choice! Please book elsewhere!!! It's worth spending a few extra bucks to stay somewhere else. I would never wish this experience on my worst enemy.

Very good welcome from the staff. The rooms were well equipped and comfortable. The hotel has a small bar which had a very delightful bartender who excelled at his service. The breakfast is standard fare and reasonable. The castle is about 10 mins walk and then the old (market square) town 10 more. Overall recommended.

I have the inconvenience of staying at this hotel at a very busy time in Nuremberg, so I had to pay 250 EUR/night. Yes, you read that correctly, two hundred and fifty euros per night. So what does that money get you? Well, absolutely nothing you'd expect. It basically gets you a room that would be around 50 EUR/night any any other European city, even on peak periods. It gets you a very outdated (no, not rustic, just outdated) room which has been very superficially cleaned (you don't need to look hard to find dust or spots that haven't been cleaned properly). The daily cleaning service is absolutely useless, they change the towels (if you so chose) and make the bed, but that's it. After 5 days there were noticeable dust-mites on the bathroom floor, yet they were left there. My room had a kitchenette built into the cupboard next to the room entrance, which was most probably from the mid 70s, rusty, old and looking very unhygienic (I did not book a room with a kitchenette). The internet is painfully slow, it is limited to 600MB/day (which you can max out just with social media and YouTube), but you might as well, because forget about working from this hotel, since VPN connections are not allowed. You can use a high speed internet connection for 7 EUR/day. That's right. You pay 250 EUR/night and have to pay EXTRA to have decent internet (I didn't so I don't know if it's worth it). On the plus side, the front desk staff is quite pleasant and friendly and the continental breakfast is what you'd expect from a 3* hotel, however if the hotel is full there aren't nearly enough tables for busy mornings. You might get lucky and have your breakfast sitting at the bar or you might just have to wait and be late or leave without eating. All in all, this is those types of hotels you see on "Hotel Impossible" (a show that I would recommend the managers to watch) being ripped apart by Anthony right from the get-go. It's a below average 3* hotel which charges outrageous prices not for quality but just because the city is full and it can. I have stayed at 2* budget hotels and at classier business hotels in Nuremberg right in the city center (this, by the way, isn't) and had better experiences in all of them, and they all were cheaper. No value for money whatsoever, so try to avoid it as much as possible.

We stayed here in march with the intention of visiting the parade grounds and then driving out towards the Steiff museum. The room was large and clean, with a spacious bathroom and linen provided. It's a 5 minute walk from the castle wall of the old town and you can find loads of shops, bars and restaurants nearby. Parking is available outside (a few spaces are free!) and there is an underground car park for €10. Overall a lovely hotel in a great location.

The hotel Azimut is a 15 euro taxi ride from Albrecht Durer airport. The reception staff are pleasant. Spotless comfortable bedrooms and a gleaming shower. Bit like a premier inn. The breakfast is good too. But the location is brilliant, walk round the corner and uphill and in 10 minutes you are walking over a moat and through the walls of a medieval castle into the walled town of Nuremburg.

This hotel is literally minutes away from the castle and everything is in good proximity to the hotel. The room we stayed in was basic but absolutely huge and the beds were very comfortable only issue with the room was it was too hot in the night and opening a window in minus temperatures wasn't feasible through the night which is why I've given a good rating. The staff were very helpful and friendly and it was less than €20 in a taxi to the airport. All in all great little hotel in a fantastic location

Basic hotel but very clean and situated in a great location. I would recommend this hotel if you are staying for a couple of nights. There are plenty of restaurants and cafe's to choose from and a beautiful city to explore.

I rated this higher because it is a good value for the price. The rooms are large, although old. The room was very hot at night in December, but opening the window a bit helped. The best part is that it is so close to the walled city that walking to the Christmas Market took only 15 minutes. Breakfast was very good and the staff very helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.
