Whilst looking for a place to stay in for our weekend in Nuremberg, I had a couple of options in mind. I knew I wanted to find somewhere centrally located, beautifully designed and a place where we felt we could relax. Luckily, I didn’t have to look too far once I found the perfect place at Melter Hotel and Apartments.
Stepping out of Melter Hotel & Apartments, we were slap-bang in the centre of the action – ready soak up history and a lot of rain. Surrounded by great restaurants, bakeries and shops, we had everything on our doorstep which is the kind of thing you really want/need with a weekend away.
As we arrived late in the evening, we quickly checked-in and hurried out of the door in search for dinner. After a lovely dinner, we couldn’t actually wait to get back to the hotel for a bit of rest and relaxation – a theme which actually continued throughout our weekend away.
We stayed in a double room and although the hotel offers a variety of other style rooms (including some pretty generous apartments), we found it to be just the right size. The bedroom had enough space to store our two cabin-sized suitcases, a table and two chairs plus a good size bed.
One of the things I loved the most about the room was how minimal, yet stylish it was with golden accessories and crisp-white bedding. The one room however which completely stole the show, was the bathroom.
I mean, just look at that shower! Our bathroom at home is a little worn for my liking and it seems no matter how many times we try to clean, those tiles just aren’t getting any shinier. It was therefore pretty nice to have a shower in a newly decorated bathroom – with pure white tiles, fresh towels and a powerful flow of water.
We slept well throughout the night as the room was quiet and the full-length curtains managed to block out any light from outside. I think the only thing we weren’t quite used to was how we each had our own small duvet – rather than one joint one. It took a bit of time to get used to it and luckily we had warm pyjamas on, otherwise it may have been a bit too breezy!
The location and things around
I was so pleased with Melter Hotel & Apartments and the location it was in as we were only a short stroll away from lots of great shops, the market square and the metro – making it easier to get around with limited time.
Adjoined to the hotel, Mondo cafe can be found which I believe is where guests can get breakfast from. We didn’t opt for this and instead walked to the nearby Casa Pane for some fresh pretzels and as many carbs as I could physically eat. We did however have a hot chocolate on the Saturday at Mondo and found it to be a lovely cafe – if a tad expensive for what it offered.

Would we stay here again?
If we ever ventured back to Nuremberg for the Christmas markets, I would totally book this hotel again. We paid £185.00 for two nights, which is on the pricey side – but I think it was worth it as part of a weekend escape. Our room was suitable for a weekend away, but I think if you were looking for a longer stay, the apartment would be a practical option. During our time here, the staff were lovely and offered us lots of recommendations about where to eat which was much appreciated. And in all honesty, I don’t think we could have found a nicer and centrally located boutique hotel than Melter Hotel & Apartments. It pretty much rocked.
