Beautiful apartment

5 of 5
I stayed here for 4 nights with my husband and 3 year old. The apartment is really great, very spacious, modern, well furnished and equipped. We really liked it. It was very hot when we were there so having fans in the bedrooms was much appreciated! Very convenient to have the U Bahn stop directly opposite, and close enough to the centre to walk everywhere. Communication with the owner was great. Only downsides - a lot of stairs to climb! And there were a lot of men hanging around outside - there wasn't any problem but I think I might have felt anxious if I'd been going out alone at night.

Superb modern apartment ideally situated for walking into Nurnberg old town.

5 of 5
Terrific apartment, clean and well furnished. Easy ten minute walk through beautiful park into Nurnberg old town. The owners were really helpful and allowed us use of their bicycles which meant we could easily get around on the many safe cycle paths. Nurnberg is a superb place, with lots of fascinating museums and pretty streets along with some great places to eat. We would highly recommend a stay here and we hope to return one day.
