Very clean and modern - had everything we needed. Lots of room, and kitchen well equipped. Owner is very friendly and helpful, and speaks English. Great places to eat and drink all around, with local shops and supermarkets very close. From the airport, just take the underground (U2 line) , and after 15 minute journey, it's simple as walking out the metro Station (Plärra), cross the road and you are there. Could not be easier. Don't worry if you arrive late on a Sunday (like we did about 9pm) as there are great places for a takeaway, and local restaurants just next door and across the road / all around really. Would highly recommend.

The apartment itself had all the requirements needed including kitchen utensils, toilet rolls and towels. The reason for our stay was to exhibit at the Spielwarenmesse Toy fair this was only 10 minutes away by taxi. There is a Lidl and Netto supermarket in walking distance which was very convenient for groceries and essentials. The owners are very friendly and helpful, would highly recommend.

It was a great location and had all the facilities we needed. It overlooked a park and although we visited in winter it would be great in the warmer months too. We visited the week before Christmas to see the Christmas markets and Nuremberg has such a lovely atmosphere. The markets were amazing and big enough to walk around with our children. We particularly loved the children's market and the rides. Nuremberg itself is a beautiful city and we will visit again. It had great shops and restaurants. The owner of the property was also lovely. She picked us up from the station and even took us to a nearby restaurant as we were all hungry and had arrived late. The underground in Nuremberg is easy to navigate and we visited the Nuremberg trials which was another great experience- very historical. The area around it was also really pretty and would be amazing in the warmer months. We honestly can't say enough how much we loved our stay and the apartment. We have nothing negative to stay. There was 5 of us staying here 2 adults 2 children and one teenager. We would recommend this apartment and the city.
