We were extremely comfortable here, with a good amount of space to spread out a bit! Our hosts were extremely helpful, both before and during our stay. Could not ask for more.

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.

Melanie is a superb owner and helpful in every way. The apartment itself is in a wonderful location within easy walking distance to everything. Very very quiet despite being in the centre. Brilliant restaurants and supermarkets 1 minutes walk from the front door and hundreds in 5 minutes. Very well equipped and exceptionally clean, it really was perfect. The only word of warning is that it is on the top floor with no lift so if you are a bit unsteady on your feet it is not for you, though I think Melanie mentions that in the read through. All I can say is that if you are going to nuremberg book it. You will not be disappointed. Cheers Melanie and happy xmas x
