We stay at this apartment hotel in the Gostenhof area of Nuremberg


Living Hotel Nuremberg

Where is it?

It is in the district of Gostenhof, about a 20-minute walk from the historic old town.

It’s near to the Gostenhof underground stop on the U1 line which can take you directly to the main station.

What is it?

This is an apartment hotel/ aparthotel, giving you the best of both worlds as the rooms have kitchenettes.

It is popular with people who want to stay for a longer period of time.

Is it family friendly?

Our room was family friendly as there was plenty of space for us to spread out.

The rooms

We are in a two-bedroom maisonette which is spread over two floors with a small balcony. There’s an open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen and a separate toilet downstairs.

The main bedroom in our apartment

Upstairs are two bedrooms and a bathroom, plus the mezzanine-style landing has a huge desk built into it. (Great for us, could be a hazard if you have young children who like to climb).

Food and drink:

You can prepare food, make picnics and eat in your room – although there is no oven, our apartment has a microwave, hob and (rather noisy) fridge. There is also a dining table. And nearby shops include a Lidl.

There is a bar and restaurant on site although the restaurant was closed when we stayed.

But there is a separate breakfast restaurant on the first floor, serving a continental buffet.

The breakfast room

There was a good selection of fruit, yoghurts, bread, rolls, pastries meats and cheeses etc.

But my daughter was disappointed as the only cereal available was muesli and there were no pancakes which are her favourite.

Top tips

There is no gym, but you can ask them to bring fitness equipment to your room for a small charge!


No space to put your toiletries in the bathroom.

A bit of a walk to the centre if you don’t catch the metro.


The Old city is a 20-minute walk away.

The underground train station is nearby and there is a tram stop just a five-minute walk.
