If you are on a budget, we recommend the AB Hotel in downtown Erlangen, within walking distance from the main station.
There is also a large variety of (more costly) accommodation which you may want to consider, including the following: Hotel Stadthaus, Hotel Rokokohaus, or Hotelchen am Theater.
A bit further afield, but reasonably-priced and well-connected to our institute by bus is the Hotel ibis budget Nuernberg Tennenlohe.
