The hotel itself is fine, but oh dear, those stairs are a killer! The restaurant is very nice, serving excellent quality German cuisine. Rooms are functional and spotless. Breakfast was somewhat limited, and they didn't rush to replenish the buffet, was only offered an egg once and coffee is served by the cup, you'll be lucky to get more than...

Great location, AMAZING PEOPLE!! But, buyer beware, there is no lift! We were in room 7 on the 4th floor, my mother almost didn't make it. The only reason they got 4 instead of 5 is because there is no lift. That was a long night way up! The room itself was large and clean, and everything I would expect...

Stayed at the Gasthaus Pillhofer from 28 - 30 November 2016 as 2 couples. We had rooms 1 and 2 on the third floor. As others have advised there is no lift and it is an endurance test after the second flight but we just laughed and it did not bother us. Our rooms looked out on the main road....

With a very wonderful feel of traditional German culture and architecture, this gasthaus was a highlight of our visit to Nuremberg Germany. The food, service, and guest rooms were splendid! As clean as they come and the staff,... I wish I could find the same level of excellence everywhere, just outstanding! If I get the chance to return to Nuremberg...

Located in the heart of the city, across from the train station, next to a beautiful section of stores all who have handmade German goods, walking to all of the sites (old & new) of Nuremberg. The room was comfy and clean, the view of the busy street below gave an awesome authentic feel of being in Germany. Great breakfast...

My wife and I stayed at an air bnb property near here. We stopped in for three evenings for a Paulaner beer on our way home from the Christmas Market. The first night we stayed our outdoor waiter helped us to find a movie theater and served us quite well. It was not very cold and it was nice to...

We liked that this hotel is on top of a popular bar and restaurant right at the beginning of a major street in the old city center. The friendly lady tending the bar checked us in. Very efficient. The room was clean, cozy and modern. Everything worked. We were able to find parking on the street in front. And we...

The Gasthaus is within easy walking distance of not only the train station but also the old city and castle as well. We arrived about a half hour before check in and the rooms weren't ready yet so we were asked to wait in the Restaurant and have some drinks on them. This was indicative of the great service that...

We loved our stay here. It is within steps of the train station and pedestrian zone. Breakfast is GREAT! Good..but pretty caloric...food. Terrific place for lunch or afternoon beer. Owners and staff are very friendly. There's no elevator but one of the staff will take your bag up for you.
