Grauer Wolf is a nice hotel in the old center of Erlangen. The hotel is neat with big apartment rooms for families for a reasonable price. Very friendly personnel and good breakfasts. Located in the old town with good restaurants and the Erlangen palace on few minutes walk.

Very friendly (and English speaking) staff and a good location for central Erlangen, although parking can be a pain. The rooms are very basic, I basically had a twin bed with two thick duvets (in summer, and no aircon) and an old TV. The bathroom was ok - at least the shower was reasonable, although it ran out of hot... More

Pros: Location - easy to walk everywhere. Check in was easy. Cons: The rooms are very basic - I am a single traveller but paid a bit more for a double room, but even then my room was very small and basic. Think 1980s university dorm room complete with Ikea lamps. Very dated bathroom with some mould on the corners... More

Stayed here for one night for business. Location is very good. Service was very friendly. So why still a poor? First, the single bed: never like it. Plus the pillow was terrible. Second, the curtains were not wide enough to blind the entire window. Third, the shower could not be positioned as the shower head holder was defective. Fourth, came... More

Stayed here for a complete week while visiting/working at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg. Was recommended by to stay in the city center as it was close to shops, restaurants and along a bus route direct to the university (approx. 20mins by bus). Was happy with the stay and had no major problems to speak of. The room was in the converted(?)... More

Stayed there during Nuremberg toy fair this February. It's obviously not the best hotel ever but not a bad one at all. The rooms (at least some of them) are rather spacious and the ones we stayed in had a kitchenette. The furniture is a bit outdated but rather than that rooms are OK and pretty clean. Breakfast is great.... More

The other reviews on this site (in German) scared me a bit, but the hotel really isn't so bad. The Pros: The location is excellent; virtually everything in Erlangen is within walking distance. The rooms are clean and reasonably spacious. Breakfast is above average, with various cold choices, including the standard rolls and cheese, but also smoked fish, various yoghurts,... More
