Ali, the manager on-site, was super helpful and easy going! We didn't want to spend a lot of money for sleeping and wanted to spend more cash for general everyday travel expenses. The family room was clean and easy. Would stay again no problem. I stayed with my husband and 13 yr old.

Nuremburg Nightmare
Totally non customer friendly. Got a rocket fot taking off my mask as i approached the desk to make myself clearly understood. Had to fill out 2 lengthy forms basically containing the same information. When i enquired about breakfast , i was told there was a pandemic on and ALL breakfasts rooms in Germany wete closed. For €7.50 , i was offered another form from which i had to "select" what i wanted and then collect it in the morning. No idea of the quality or quantity but a stop in an A&O in Dublin a few years ago produced a breakdast that wouldn't fill an ant and the quality was definitely poor. Tha above is put into better context by my stop at the A&O in Dusseldorf last night. I only had to fill in one small form and the breakfast room was open for a reasonable buffet breakfast at €7.90. AND the receptionist was customer friendly. I am even considering contacting Hotels.com and requesting a refund. Will definitely NEVER stay at the Nuremburg A&O ever again.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The room I stayed in had 6 bunks, with an ensuite shower and toilet. The check in was easy to do, and front desk staff was pleasant and were clear on how to check out early to catch an early train. I was a little disappointed that there was a 3€ charge for bedding at this A&O, as there was no mention of this on Expedia's listing. Would stay again though for a cheap place to stay! Great for a night or two.

Overall good hotel
Overall, this please was great. It was close to town and the train station, it couldn’t have been in a better location. The room was nice and clean, as was the overall property. The “kitchen” area was a bit of a let down however. It was pretty dirty and small, and just had a hot plate really. But overall, our stay was pleasant and we would come back again.
