I have stayed Zum Schwaenlein many times, at one point almost monthly, never had any problems. The location is ideal, just around the corner from the Main Station but the area remains quiet. It is possible to find all the best places Nuremberg has to offer within easy walking distance. Downstairs there is a lovely bar/restaurant in Bohemian style, in... More

We were up on the top floor -- 3rd floor if you're European, 4th if you're North American -- which has very basic rooms: there is a sink in the room, but the toilet and shower room are shared with the rest of the floor (you can lock the door to the shower, there is privacy and it's all quite...

We stayed at Zum Schwaenlein during the last week of May 2014 for 4 nights. This is a small one star hotel with a very typical look to it. There has not been much if any change in the hotel interiors for many years now, I know as I have been staying here since 2002. The room we had was... More

We stayed in this guesthouse for one night in December. The room was typical of many European guest houses. We had 2 adults and 2 kids, but only needed a place to sleep so it was more than adequate.

The hotel is situated in the city center, just by the main railway station. Clean with friendly staff. Because of place is quite noisy but since I am used to travel with earplugs it wasn't really problem. Breakfast are buffet style, with choise of chease and ham and salami, breakfast cereals, jams. Coffe, tea, orange juice, water.

“Location is great - inside the walled city, close enough to the train station to walk over, deposit your bags and explore the sights. I will stay there again if I overnight in Nurnberg.”
