Once a royal residence, Gotha is located at the edge of the Thueringian Forest and with its close proximity to the cities of Erfurt, Weimar and Eisenach is simply an ideal place for a fascinating holiday break. You´ll find a friendly and individual atmosphere at the Best Western Hotel Der Lindenhof. Our quiet, idyllic location in park lands is unusual for a city hotel and perfect for both - concentrated work and relaxation. Our comfortable lobby with Italian designer furniture is conducive to read, have a coffee or a drink. Start the day off in our light and cozy rooms. For the discerning guests there is a selection of spacious apartments (and suites) to choose from. Our restaurant is highly recommended in many restaurant guides. Let our chef spoil you with regional specialties such as Rostbraetel roasts with onions or with international dishes. Professional meeting facilities with our own catering department, most modern meeting equipment, wireless LAN and individually created meeting packages will motivate your delegates to top performances. Interesting and entertaining events are performed on the summer terrace and in the Lucas-Cranach Hall. Our extensive wellness area with sauna, solarium, steam bath and adjacent quiet zones is ideal for relaxation. Take a break from every day pressure and enjoy some tranquil moments on our terrace, especially during summer evenings. The modern and high quality equipment will ensure even a pro a safe and sweaty workout.

    This hotel is a wonderful place for a night or a two week stay as was my occasion. The room was immaculate, the staff professional and helpful for every request. It is very quiet even when full. The dining was delicious, really fine dinners, and the wait staff was courteous and friendly and professional. I recommend this hotel without reservation.

    « Surprisingly Great Breakfast for a Best Western! »

    Rooms were updated, nice large windows, Swivel flat screen TV, bonfire at night, quiet location. Breakfast was outstanding with a large selection buffet. They even had "to go" bags for breakfast which we took for a lunch. Free wifi had two login screens, which was a bit of a pain. The night shift desk staff didn't know the best English, however it was not horrible. Parking is free, right outside the hotel.

    « So much to say about this hotel... »

    The hotel is an interesting place. It is old barracks, and it has that sort of feel, although I feel that they've done a nice job at renovating it. The front desk staff was friendlier than any other hotel I've visited in Germany. This goes for the breakfast staff as well. They all went out of their way to accommodate us. Unfortunately, the hotel was overbooked for one of the nights during our stay, and we had to find accommodations elsewhere during the middle of our stay in Gotha. The hotel was undergoing construction, and the front desk person made a point to get us the most quiet room possible and we were grateful. I felt that the breakfast was nice. After a week, it was a bit tiresome to have the same offerings, but they did have a daily special that changed it up some. I loved the fresh rolls, especially the ones with pumpkin seeds, and if they were out by the time we arrived for breakfast, the staff seemed happy to bring us some they had in the back. We elected to participate in a bonfire dinner they had one evening. While the outdoor ambiance and fire were great (as was the acoustic band that played), the dinner was very expensive for the quality of food that was offered. Toiletries in the bathroom were non-existent. Not an issue, but something to point out. The one thing that I found most annoying was the horribly intermittent internet service. Pathetic. We counted one stretch of time where we had to log back on roughly every 90 seconds. It became such a joke that we gave up. We inquired about it at the front desk and they were very apologetic, but powerless to do anything. We are planning on staying here again. Here's hoping either the internet is reliable, or work doesn't need me!

    « Four stars? Four alarms better advice »

    Terrible hotel. Best western should review the franchise. Our 'comfort' (junior suite) was anything but. The furniture and decor were old and looked as if they had been put togther by the blind, nothing co-ordinated let alone matched, and nothing was comfortable. Bedding mostly polyester. The room was cold and damp as if it hadn't been used in months. The curtains too thin and let in light. No toiletries in the bathroom apart from bottles of liquid soap For the quality dinner was expensive. My asparagus, despite heavy advertising, was lifted some days ago and the hollandaise sauce, thin lumpy and acidic, with a skin on the surface. The ham was cheap commercial. Breakfast only slightly better, all very cheap food. Oh and the Internet wasn't much good either.

    « Nice Hotel - Strange Location »

    Staff and service were terrific. Area was a little stark and too far to visit schloss without a car. Free parking was a plus. Wifi worked great in the room but no tea/coffee making facilities which is a disappointment for a Best Western. Breakfast was good though a little chaotic, crowded and spread around. Dinner was ok but it might have been due to poor choices on our part. It's spargel season so asparagus comes with everything. Hotel wasn't too far from Friedenstein Castle but with a festival going on parking any where near it was a real problem with many blocked off streets.

    « Four Star Hotel with Five Star Service »

    Have been here twice already and everything was perfect! The meal is good, but has been even better when I was here the first time. Located on the outskirts of Gotha, ideal for both exploring the beautiful landscape and the lovely historic city centre (even without a car!). Tram station 150 m, sufficient parking (no additional charge), free bike hire (good quality). Rooms and bathrooms have adequate space. All is well kept! Ideal place for people who like honest quality.

    « Rooms Ok, breakfast good »

    The Best Western Gotha is in the suburbs of the city. For a walk it would take too long to the city centre. There is a tram to the city and its about 5 minutes by car. Hotel seems to be in a old military facility. Rooms are renovated and Ok, but not more. My single room was not very big and also not too clean. No pool or so. However it is in a quiet location. Breakfast was good. Good selection, nice breakfast room. Dinner however was just average, prices a little bit too high. Room rate was too high for this city.
