On our way to italian alps we stayed one night in a business room. The room was clean and functional and in total, OK hotel-room. Friendly service and good breakfast. Close to the centre of the city with a lot of cafe´s and restaurants.

A standard business hotel so the rooms are without character but it was clean and functional. The service In the bar/food area was excellent despite being very busy. The scramble for taxis in the morning is crazy with queue jumping, long waits and no control at all.

Dear Sarah_London547, Thank you for your review and stay at our hotel. We are very pleased that you enjoyed our service and also our food, and ask you to apologize for the inconvenience caused by the taxis. Unfortunately, there may be short waiting times at trade fairs. We would therefore recommend to order taxis the night before. We hope to...

Stayed there for business. Didn't really like it. Small, industrial rooms, which give you a sad feeling. Reception staff was slow, often unfriendly and did not have a good knowledge of the area. Best part was checking out. And maybe the breakfast which was average.

Reasonable rent, nice rooms - if a little small, but we are in Europe. Nice little bar, friendly service and it is quite a nice little town. Was going to say in Nuremberg but decided on here because of the price. Recommended

Friendly reception, tv with many channels, bed ok, bathroom ok (with saging signs) That in combo with shy wlan ( I used my telecom flatrate to do my work), relative fresh room temperature (air heating could not compensate fresh breeze from window), 17€ for standard breakfast buffet and premium parking costing, makes in comparison this experience "average".

The hotel itself is very good, however, a bit pricey - that's my opinion. Taking in account hotel branch specifics for Erlangen it is more or less normal, due to all hotels are a bit expensive there, despite not more special than their twins in another areas. But despite the price everything else is just great. Staff deserves additional "plus"...

Reading a couple of recent reviews, we booked here reluctantly. I guess things sometimes go wrong, our experience however was first rate. The service was attentive to our needs and with a smile, and were not German! Agreed that breakfast was pricey and avoided that otherwise are stay was perfect.

Made a booking one day in advance! At arrival I was informed that my room has been given to another person and that was the last one in that hotel!

Short distance to Nuremberg with famous Christkindlesmarkt. Quiet university town. Local Christmas market in Erlangen close to the hotel is exciting with the home-loving atmosphere. Hotel close to city center.
