Lonely Planet review
Location, location: the Nickel will appeal to everyone looking for a simple place to crash after a red-light romp. Go up (and up and up) the steep stairs from the historic, well-stocked pub, and you'll find clean no-nonsense rooms, all bathrooms shared. Rates include a big cooked breakfast and drop sharply during the week.
Our independent authors have visited The Old Nickel Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Medieval Centre & Red Light District.
