    « Better than UK Best Westerns »

    Its rare I stay at a Best Western hotel, but I found it slightly better than the UK hotels. Check in was quick and easy, the room was lovely, bed was nice and comfy for a change. The staff at breakfast were helpful.

    « Confortable bed, good breakfast however its old »

    Clean room with everything on its place. (bathroom sink was in the room (outside of the bathroom), not so nice but its OK) Room is equipped well, there's all what you need for an overnight. Breakfast was nicely served and was enough. Staff nice, pleasant and smiling.. :) The hotel looks and it is old, the location of the hotel is inadequate for the people how are visiting the city without a car, because its to far away from city center. It was a weary good price

    « Good hotel at best location »

    I stayed at this hotel for one week. The location of hotel is best in my opinion. One can have nice view of Jena city from room balcony (if the room is at front side of hotel). The hotel offers free wifi which is now common in all hotels of Germany. The breakfast menu offers a big variety of items. One can surf the full city as the hotel room key can be used as a ticket in local buses and trams. Overall very good experience with the hotel.


    Really like everything about the hotel including breakfast. Plenty of room at the best price we experienced in any hotel on our Germany vacation. Downtown Jena is nearby..we chose to drive rather than take public transportation. Very friendly staff.

    « stayed for one night on a ledger battlefield tour »

    decent 3 courses for 19 euros . needs updating . telly in room was one i had in the 1960s lol . staff very friendly . good base to stay . breakfast was bog standard but u ll not go hungry . tiny lifts , 3 people wiyh cases and thats it .

    « Clean, great courtesy, free parking and free internet »

    I spent three night for a business trip. I stayed in a room with a colleague. The room was big, clean and with a balcony. Even the view was beautiful. The price was cheap for the quality of the service. In front of the elevator there was an amazing machine for cleaning the shoes. We got a card to use for traveling for free with the public transport of Jena. We did not eat but I had a hot chocolate with rum one evening and it was delicious.

    « Basic hotel with a good view. »

    Okay, very basic, worth the price. Some of the facilities could do with an upgrade. Try and get a room facing the city (facing the front of the hotel), these rooms have a great view of the city and the mountain(?). Rooms at the back have a boring view of a steep hill and a few houses. The food, functional no frills. The breakfast buffet does have a decent variety. Spent 5 days here and I had no complaints about the staff, well they could smile once in a while though.

    « Special for that city »

    A good hotel in Jena. There is a balcony for each room and you have an amazing view of city or at behind rural view of city border. It is placed at one side of city and one should take a taxi to reach the downtown. It takes about 10 minutes by taxi. The hotel has polite and kind staff serving every moment as you need. There is no private safety box in the room. It is necessary to consider. Food and breakfast are simple. There is a spa but no one is responsible there about absence of its staff. I only recommend it to business men who may resist in this hotel.

    « Like the Curate's Egg - good in parts »

    Handily placed for the motorway but not so for the centre of town or the station. However, it's elevated site affords good views of the town and area and there was plenty of parking space around the hotel. Our room was comfortable, with a balcony, though we didn't use it much in December! As part of a tour group we had porterage supplied but that wasn't all that efficient. The rooms also have those strange card keys with punch holes almost a remnant of card punch information systems and you really have to push them in hard to activate and ditto, pull out firmly. We had set meal times and set meals. There was a vegetarian option but for the rest of us it was take it or leave for all three courses. The meals were quite decent but the desserts lacked imagination and the starter was soup every night. In view of the set time and menu it was a little frustrating one evening to have to wait half an hour for the starter to arrive! the staff were pleasant and helpful but not that many of them so delays could occur.

    « Positive surprise »

    I did not expect much going into this hotel on the outskirts of the town but it ended up a pleasant surprise: clean, updated, quiet with a bar that stays open late. Patchy wi-fi in the rooms. Fast and friendly service.

    « OK but not inspiring. A few disadvantages for business travellers »

    I arrived in Jena at Goschwitz station and walked to this hotel. Unfortunately it is on the wrong side of the railway tracks which means a long detour either to the road bridges or to the underpass that I found, so it makes for a long walk, the last bit uphill. Not recommended. On arrival I was greeted by a sign saying the reception had gone away and to 'Have some patience". Quite a lot of patience later I was confronted by the unfriendliest receptionist I have come across for a long time. After travelling for 13 hours+ it would be nice to have someone on the desk who could at least pretend to be please to see you... I didn't eat any meals in the hotel except breakfast, which was standard German hotel fare... German style sausage, bacon and powdered scrambled eggs, selection of fish and meats and fruit, muesli and yoghurt. It was ok, nice enough if a bit generic. Most of the rooms have balconies. These seem to be popular with smokers, as I discovered when stepping on the balcony and wondering where the smell of smoke was coming from (Look over the edge and see three or four hands hanging over the railings all holding cigarettes!) Not a problem since the weather wasn't so warm and I kept the door shut, but might be annoying on a hot day. There is free Wi-Fi, but it didn't work for me on the top floor near the end of the building. A colleague of mine managed to watch a football match on it, but he was nearer the centre of the building. The room was clean enough, bit sparse. No tea or coffee (normal in Germany) but no bottled water either. There were vending machines in the lobby and ALDI, LIDL and a garage selling cold beer and hot sausages are all walkable within a mile or two, if you are fit enough and can brave the main road. (Head uphill!) What I didn't like so much is that if you walk out of the hotel you are on a main road with no pavements. The nearest tram is just a little bit too far away (Winzerla). It gives it a slightly isolated feeling if you have no car with you. They did run a shuttle which took me to the place of work I needed to visit in the mornings. Check out was efficient and the guy who checked me out was a bit friendlier ;-)

    « Decent hotel. »

    Stayed one night with Leger. We didn't arrive until 2130 but they had kept the restaurant open for everyone but we just had a snack in the bar and they were excellent - bruschetta and tempura prawns. The bar staff were friendly and helpful with translations. The room was ok, standard hotel room style but reasonable size. bed and pillows were comfortable. Can't remember if there was aircon but we opened the windows (we were at the rear - very quiet) and it was ok. The breakfast buffet was good - standard continental fare but with a hot option. Note that the hotel is some way out of the town centre but id near the autobahn junction.

    « Decent, Clean and Dated »

    Rooms are clean though dated looking. the towels are basic, thin and seemed old but are clean. The Wi-Fi is free and not too bad but seemed like it dropped data. The hotel advertises air conditioning but many of the units don't work and they are all very dated, loud and unsatisfying. Breakfasts were good but never changing but the kitchen turned out decent food at a reasonable price until quite late. Parking is plentiful and free which is nice. It is close to the highway though and not in the city center at all. Overall it is adequate, the staff is nice enough and some are very friendly but there is also a certain something missing.

    « Decent Hotel, Value for Money »

    Restaurant was good, with decent food, but Breakfast was boring, though The breakfast is exactly same everyday, almost like "ground hog day". Our room was furthest corner of the hotel on 3rd or 4th floor, with Big suitcases it was quite a walk and stairs involved.
