“Adequate”
Reviewed November 29, 2010

We got a double room, it had 2 single wooden beds joined together, 2 small nightstands, a wooden wardrobe, a very small desk, 2 chairs, a small old TV and clean fitted carpet. The bathroom was fairly spacious for a room of this type, it had a shower and large window for a bathroom.
In the breakfast, there was a choice of only white buns, jam, butter, cheese, ham. Also, 3 types of cereal with milk. For drinks, there was juice, tea and coffee. Located in a small area next to the reception.
It is an old building but most furniture is new, the doors, windows and carpets are new. The windows provide good sound proofing.Bathroom not very well ventilated. (For ventilation you need to open the window).
No special view, just a small but busy road.
Lighting not the best for reading.
Good heating system, both in the bedroom and bathroom. Feels like it is well insulated because it was very cold outside and we didn't need to have the heating on most of the time.
Be careful if you try to book a room online and confirm all your preferences by email because we completed the online form and they made mistakes like giving us a single room instead of a double and we had to pay for breakfast, even though we asked for no breakfast, as they only had a free room in the 'breakfast' building.

I have stayed several times and if all you want is somewhere to sleep this is great. They have clean rooms, clean bathrooms and breakfast if you can get up earlier enough. And at the right price for a beer weekend/5 days on the berg

Please don't get me wrong - this is not a hotel to take your wife for a romantic weekend. Here you get exactly what you pay for - plus some nice extras which are not common in hotels of this price range (actually this is one of the cheapest places in Erlangen, if not the cheapest one). The hotel consists of two buildings, some 200 meters apart; they are both on similar level of standards. Location is quite central, near the theatre and the gardens, some 15 minutes' walk from Erlangen Arcaden. The rooms are very basic, but considering the price (30 EUR per night for single room) they are OK. Now the extras:
- free internet access (however bring your own LAN cable if you'll be staying at Harfenstrasse)
- they accept credit cards
- you can book online
The only real problem is with parking. On some occassions it took me 15 minutes driving round and round to find a place to park. And if you come before 19:00 the parking is not free anywhere near the hotel.
The hotel is OK for short stays,
