Watch your step for two reasons; first, because the hardwood floors, while beautiful, are very slippery. Second, watch your step because you will NOT be watching television on the archaic crt screen with few channels, or watching anything online using the free, but unreliable wifi access.
That said, I would recommend this hotel because the location, right outside the old city and down the street from the train station, is nearly ideal. Also, the bar and restaurant are both excellent, with friendly service. The indoor pool is too small and dark--it's in the basement--for me, but others may enjoy it.
If you have an early morning flight out of Nuremburg, this hotel is very convenient. Just cross the street an you are there. My family found this hotel clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff is very friendly and spoke English perfectly. We had to ask for a roll away bed and it was delivered and set up as promised very quickly. There is no actual restaurant open for dinner in this hotel, (it is across the street in the airport terminal and only open until 8pm on most weeknights) so we had to eat at the airport kiosks after we settled in. The hotel itself does serve breakfast, which was not included in our rate so we decided to check in early at our gate and grab a bite there.
We chose this hotel because it was close to friends that we were going to visit. The staff were very friendly, cooperative, and efficient. The room was clean. The location is a very nice wooded area. The public areas (and perhaps other rooms) were nicely appointed. Our room was disappointing. First, the room and bathroom were quite small. They were adequate for the job (sleeping and cleaning up), but not much more. The bed was comfortable. It was hot while we were there and the room was very hot. (Most German hotels do not have A/C.) Secondly, and for us problematically, to get to our room from the main entrance was like finding one's way through a maze. We had to go through a lobby and then through a bar to reach the first elevator to go to the second floor, then through a dining area and a glassed in corridor, down a hall to a second elevator to go to the third floor, then down the hall to our room. This may be no problem for the young and fit (and even a bit of fun), but both my wife and I have "locomotion and breathing issues" and it was not fun for us.
I cannot emphasize enough, though, how helpful otherwise the staff were.

We came in late in afternoon and left the next morning. The hotel front desk staff was excellent, very helpful in getting us into our rooms and giving us an overview of what were must see sites for the old city and Hitler's museum. Rooms were fine and clean. My wife wants me to install heated towel racks in my bathroom at home now.
I give a 4 rating because the room I thought I reserved which was an average size room was very small. In fact, too small for two people. The description on Expedia was not quite clear and there was no guarantee that we would receive what was requested (which was double beds). When we arrived we were given a very small room which contained two twin beds close together. We asked if we could get a larger room and was shown one which was $20 more and a suite which was $30 per day extra. The larger room was an average size room, still with two twin beds. Then we were shown the suite (also with twin beds); with separate office living space and a balcony. We opted for the suite and asked if we could have it for $20 more instead of $30. $20 more was agreed upon. This experience made me suspicious.

I was staying on business and the location couldn't have been better - very close to the rail station with access to the airport and convention centre but also an easy walk to the old part of the city.
The rooms were spotless, large and very comfortable - which is unusual in Europe!
Breakfast was a little pricey at €15 - but I don't eat much for breakfast :-) there was a very good selection if you wanted to eat more!
Thick walls with 80 towers enclose Nuremberg’s old quarter. Kaiserburg Castle, the city’s most famous landmark, dates from the 11th century and was home to Germany’s kings and emperors for 500 years. In the 20th century, Nuremberg was the site of three of Hitler’s biggest rallies, as well as the post-war trials of Nazi leaders. Today, Nuremberg is a major tourism and business destination.
