We noticed that Erlangen hotels were quite expensive due to many business people visiting. So we chose this 2 star hotel for price (still more expensive than what we paid for in Hamburg).
We stayed here recently for 3 nights. With the exception of weak coffee the breakfast is certainly one of the best we've come across for a 2/3 star hotel. The main dishes changed each day (Tuesday morning - 3 types of smoked fish, and cooked shrimps Wednesday was little meat burgers with mozzarella cheese/tomato/basil and Thursday was Wiener Bratwurst with mozzarella cheese/tomato/basil ). However, you need to get down early as the plates do not get replenished. Rest of breakfast was a large selection of bread rolls, sliced bread, and crackers, cheese, meat, cereal, fresh fruit, jams, yoghurt, eggs and there was a bowl of mini chocolate snack bars!
Our room was on the 1st floor and although the hotel was near the train station it was a quiet room overlooking an inner court. Bedroom was furnished with IKEA furniture, mattress was soft and the pillows were huge which resulted in neck ache for me. Bathroom had no window and looked tired & dated with tiny signs of mould coming through. Despite its look the shower was a good one.
Good WiFi connection - we needed it as all TV channels were in German.
We found the hotel owner was helpful for most of the time albeit she was stern/brusque. She suggested we visit Bamberg which we did and we really enjoyed the trip. I would have scored the service higher if she was not so dismissive on our last day. We had checked out early to do some sight seeing and when we went to collect our bags at 2.00pm I was hoping to use their wash room but the hotel inner door was locked, and after pressing the hotel buzzer to ask to use the toilet she said she was not at the hotel and told me to use the bakery's or station's toilet. Really felt fobbed off. Of course, if we were arriving guests she would have come over from her adjacent flat to let us in. So nil point for her "can't be bothered" behaviour. Because of this we would not come back to this hotel.
