Nice hotel near to the main attractions in Nurnberg and friendly staff people at reception.
Maybe the may improve their facilities with a lift (it's really hard to move a big trolley to the third floor using only the stairs!)
They also has a good restaurant in the first floor.

If anyone I know comes to Germany, I would highly recommend visiting Nuremberg.

Jim and Bill had a taste (0.5 litre!) of Dark German beer, Dunkle Weizen - very nice. A local told us there are 300 breweries around Nuremberg and Bamberg.
After dinner we were entertained on board by an excellent singer who sang songs from most European countries - a nice change from Pieter the resident entertainer...
... our pick-up point, only to discover the ship was still not there. As Mark said we had a good and bad situation, we had to wait for the ship, however we had a great photo opportunity of the ship docking. As it finally approached the few left on board were all standing and waving and the waiters were all lined up at the dinning room windows waving. We were now 1 hour late for dinner. The group of us on the dock were also waving to those on board. It was quite a fun finish to the ...
