Our motto is „Stay overnight like at friends“ and we are serious about it. We meet your expectations of organic quality, aesthetics and service every day. We take care of you, but also keep a respectful distance at the right time – always to the extent that you wish. And we are happy about guests who also behave like friends.
On each floor there is a service station with alcoholic and soft drinks, snacks and sweets. Here, you will also find dishes, glasses and cutlery here. Help yourself – payment is made on a trust basis directly into a box provided or upon departure.
We have a barrier-free room on the ground floor. Doors and washbasins are adapted to wheelchair size.
- By train: to Nuremberg main station, then change to the U2 to Röthenbach terminus. From there, take the bus (line 63 or 64) for 2 more stops to the Stein Kirche stop (20m from the hotel).
- By car: from the A3, A6 or A9 take the A73, exit Jansenbrücke or exit Stein and then take the B14 towards Ansbach. The B14 leads directly to the hotel in Stein.
- By plane: directly at the airport take the U2 to the last stop Röthenbach. From there, take the bus (line 63 or 64) another 2 stops to the Stein Kirche stop (20m from the hotel). If you have a lot of luggage, a cab might make more sense (approx. 35 €).
Look forward to a comfortable standard equipment: shower, toilet, washstand, large mirror, illuminated cosmetic mirror, soap dispenser, hair dryer, toothbrush mug, cosmetic towels. Our comfort rooms, suites and apartments each have a towel warmer. Visually, too, the bathrooms are – in our opinion – extraordinarily appealing.
For 19 euros we spoil you with selected organic delicacies from mainly regional production from the buffet. Children up to 4 years are free at breakfast, from 4 to 10 years children pay 12 euros at breakfast. We make some jams and spreads ourselves. We also smoke cheese and wild ham ourselves. Various (wholemeal or sourdough) breads and rolls, fresh butter, egg dishes, cheese, sausage and vegan antipasti offer what the heart and stomach desire. We also accommodate individual intolerances upon advance reservation. Vegetarian and vegan dishes are usually abundant at the buffet, but you help our kitchen if you give us a hint.
Bus & train
On the other side of the street – directly opposite – you will find the bus station with connection to the subway (transport network of the VGN) within two stations. You can reach the city center of Nuremberg by public transport in about 20 minutes. Upon request, we will provide you with a discounted hotel ticket (currently 10.10 Euro/valid for 2 days) or the Nuremberg Card (25 Euro/for all museums and public transportation for 2 days).
