What a lovely, convenient hotel..perfect location and beautiful rooms. The staff was very helpful and friendly and efficient. We could walk everywhere.... The rooms were always clean and well equipped. We would definitely stay there again!

Just two minutes away from the famous Goethe and Schiller statues you'll find a hotel right in the middle of the city with spacious rooms, friendly staff and a adequate breakfast buffet. The poets are present in your room, at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Worldly wisdoms for a successful day...

08/10/2018

Stayed here for 2 nights. The location of the hotel is excellent. It's 15 min walking distance from the train station and the bus stop is right across the road. The rooms are small but cozy with all the necessary amenities. The bed and pillows are comfy. The breakfast is probably one of the best breakfasts that I have had. The staff is well mannered but a bit more smile would not hurt. I found them to be a bit to formal and less friendly . They provided me with a city map and helped with my restaurant reservation. I would definitely stay in this hotel when next time in Weimar.

If you need an hotel right in the center this is hotel for you. checkin and checkout where pretty fast but what disappointed me was : Gym : it is totally not what they advertyze and picture. WIFI: connection drops multiple times .

Russischerhof, Manager at Best Western Premier Grand Hotel Russischer Hof, responded to this review
Dear guest, thank you for your rating and comments. Regarding the gym we admit, that due to a technical problem just one equipment had to be removed and is presently under repair. All other machiines can be used. With best regards Albert Voigts General Manager

09/09/2018

Nice modern and semi-luxurious hotel on one of the main streets and very central to all the sights. Rooms were very good with a really nice modern bathroom. I am not a fan of valet parking, but it worked OK. Though I did have to wait longer than I would have liked to get my car on checking out, and when the driver delivered it he must have thought he was driving a rally car the way he sped up to hand it over to me ! But would highly recommend, and very reasonably priced too.

It's one of those hotels which really corresponds to its name - Grand. It shows at its lobby, with marble and granite inlaid floors, and continues with its hallways and rooms. Beautiful interior design. The room wasn't large but decorated very tastefully. Good central location, easy to find. Very efficient and helpful front desk. They provide valet parking for €20. And in a final nice touch they send you a personal email afterwards.

"Excellent location, luxurious facilities"

18/08/2018

We chose a luxury hotel for a single night, and were not disappointed at all. The location is excellent, the room was impeccable and the service was exquisite. It would be a five star review, was it not for a small glitch, the personnel addressing me improperly during breakfast, using "du" instead of "Sie" in German, which I expected being a (quite) adult person. A bit of improvement needed there... Nevertheless, I highly recommend this hotel.

Russischerhof, Manager at Best Western Premier Grand Hotel Russischer Hof, responded to this review
Dear guest, thanks a lot for your esteemed comments here. Regarding the "adressing" at the breakfast (which is totally incorrect) I will check amoung the staff to find out who served you. Please take my excuse. We all look forward to welcoming you again and remain with best regards Albert Voigts and colleagues General Manager

Located right in town it was a pleasure to stay there despite the fact that we are not fans of luxury (which this hotel has in spades). A full range of toiletries added to the pleasure of our stay. The valet parking was a bonus.

13/08/2018

Great place to stay when visiting Weimar. Grand hotel with a small boutique hotel feeling. I love that they still have real keys, no key cards. The breakfast buffet has so many options, you will eat enough to have to skip lunch. The location is perfect, just outside the pedestrian zone. Definitely recommend for anyone heading to Weimar.

"Nice Hotel - Lousy WiFi"

09/07/2018

This is a beautiful hotel with well-appointed rooms, in a good location, but it has LOUSY WiFi. If you're used to being able to search for "things to do" or "restaurants near me," you won't be able to do it at this hotel, which is unfortunate. The WiFi worked for about 1 minute, then cut out for about 5 minutes, over and over again. When I called the front desk to report connectivity problems, I was told that I was the only person having problems.

Russischerhof, Manager at Best Western Premier Grand Hotel Russischer Hof, responded to this review
Dear guest, thank you for your report about your Wifi experience. We sometimes face a high trafic which can not be covered by the provider. But this happens only during a few minutes. Also sometimes a bad connectivity relays on the guests devices itself. We are very sorry that you were disappointed about this service.

"Not your average Best Western"

29/03/2018

I have stayed in many Best Western Hotels in the US. However, the Weimar Premier Grand Hotel Russischer Hof, is unlike any I have stayed in. It has a classical feel to it, with very friendly staff, most of whom speak English. Their restaurant is elegant and excellent. They also have a bar, coffee house and breakfast area. My room was comfortable and also had a classic feel (I liked the art). Most importantly, this hotel is in the center of town. I was staying in Weimar to research Goethe and Schiller. I was able to walk to every place in town, including the Deutsch National Theatre. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I am thinking of bringing my family for a stay in the futrue.

Was visiting my daughter who was on a 2 week German course in Wiemar. I was not a Best Western customer-until this trip. Super elegant 4 star hotel, in close proximity to main attractions of the city and museums, restaurants. Luxurious breakfast, with a wide choice of German specialities- even if this is not cheap at 21euros/head. Room/facilities matching top quality! Strongly recommended for a weekend visiting Wiemar/Erfurt.

"Historic Elegance in the Heart of the City"

29/05/2017

There is absolutely NOTHING not to love about the Russischer Hof. From the excellent and friendly welcome to the amazingly beautiful rooms, you will definitely feel in the midst of luxury. I booked a single room at the last moment during a very busy time in Weimar. Even though they'd been fully booked the night before my arrival, they made every concession to get me an early check-in without additional fees. For this weary traveler this was very much appreciated and, frankly, much needed! Location? You simply cannot be more central - everything Weimar has to offer is within a short few footsteps away. You're definitely in the heart of this amazing, historic city. The room was on the top floor overlooking the beautiful landscape of Weimar. I actually preferred this to a city view and being able to relax on the private balcony was a true pleasure. A single room is quite spacious with a gracious entry, desk and work space, a cozy nook with a lounge to relax before bed, and a huge, fully outfitted bathroom. The bed was firm without being stiff (my preferred), and the bedding wonderfully soft. I was also pleased with the large amount of amenities that come with the room. Soaps, shoe polish, rivers, slippers, lotions - nothing was lacking and I felt quite at home. The welcome gift of mineral water and light snack was an additional unexpected treat! Although Weimar isn't lacking on restaurants, the breakfast at the hotel is an absolute MUST. The offerings I am sure vary according to season, however during my stay it included boiled eggs with cream and caviar, a huge variety of fruits and breads, cereals, veggies, scrambled eggs, Wurst - the list goes on and on. Suffice it to say no matter the dietary needs one will not go away hungry! Five stars out of five and needless to say I will be returning once again to enjoy the wonderful hospitality!

"Friendly Excellence "

10/04/2017

The Best Western Premier Grand Russischer Hof offers consistent, impeccable, excellent service while maintaining a warm and friendly atmosphere. I appreciate the balance of a warm, homelike presence of the staff with the elegance of a beautiful property managed at the highest level of excellence. Sometimes the efficiency of a property as tightly managed as this one can create a sense of cool distance. On just my second visit the staff greeted me by name. My interaction with the staff has continued to be warm and inviting at all levels. When one travels alone, at a great distance, and away from family, the atmosphere and service at a hotel can make an important difference. I appreciate very much the difference this hotel makes in my travels. I am not sure if the phrase offers the kind of semiotic punch I wish it to convey, but "friendly excellence" captures something essential in what I hope to conceptually signify when I remember my stay at this property.

The location of the hotel is ideal for attending the opera and visiting the many sights that Weimar has to offer. I had a very nice room on the top 4th floor with a little balcony. Extremely clean.

The hotel has a great location, directly in the city center. Within 5 minutes walk you can reach all highlights of the city. The hotel is beautiful it has a very historical design. We stayed at a historical room. The design is great you feel like in old times never the less the equipment is new. The room was huge, beds are very good and the bathroom was as well clean and nice. So we can recommend to book this room type. The hotel as a bar, a restaurant and a cofe place. Parking is also no problem. You have a parking place just behind the hotel ( 2 minutes walk). In case you plan to visit the city you should stay at this hotel.

"Has ambition but can't achieve it"

18/12/2016

This hotel holds a 4* SuperiorDEHOGA rating (first class), it is a shame that the management cannot live up to it. We arrived full of headcold so felt it would be unfair to other guests to eat in the restaurant. We therefore availed ourselves of room service but did not fancy the English menu in the room. However, information in the room said we could also select from the restaurant menu but this was only in German. I therefore asked room service for a translation of the German menu only to be told by the person on the other end of the phone that she has too much to do and had no time to translate the menu. Five minutes later, there was a knock on the door and a restaurant menu appeared - in German. I do not call this first class service! We also required a gluten free menu for my wife and was told at reception to fill the card in in our room - this we did and sure enough, gluten free rolls were available for breakfast when we went down next morning. There w s also a substantial breakfast waiting outside our room when we returned which remained there for most of the day even though I told reception that they had made a mistake. The room seemed very good when we first arrived but although information stated that tea making facilities had been made available together with a hot plate for those wishing to cater for themselves, the room only had 2 mugs and no cutlery - I presume guests have to provide for themselves! The bathroom had a sink with a large crack in it and the standard of cleaning was more 2* then 4*. Our room cost £375 for 3 night - to this we had to add €19.50 per night for car parking and €19.50 per person per night for breakfast (twice the average in Germany) - it was explained to us that we could have caviar and champagne butthat sounded a little pretentiouse. I don't think we will be returning! This hotel has a no-smoking policy and there is a surcharge of €150 if one smokes in the room. As the bar openly sells expensive cigars, I asked the smoking policy in the bar. I was told that the smokers could smoke in the adjacent cafe after 6pm when the general ppublic had left (before this the strict no-smoking policy is enforced) - is this not double standards. This is not

"GORGEOUS hotel!"

30/11/2016

Really everything about this hotel is so fancy, clean, and upscale! The staff really sets the bat high - they literally bend over backwards to accommodate their guests. I actually lost my wallet in the small coffee shop attached to the hotel, went about my day and didn't realize it was missing until much later. I saw I had a missed call - the hotel called my phone to say they had found my Louis Vuitton wallet (which was FULL of cash may I add). I ran back to the hotel- it was safe behind the desk, and not a dollar had been touched. I thought for SURE it was gone for good - this hotel is so honorable and respectable in how they do business. Can't recommend this hotel enough!! You won't be disappointed.

"FANTASTIC - Wonderfully Historical"

24/11/2016

Beautiful hotel - very historical Have a standard twin and it is lovely. Can't believe all the "comforts" at a very reasonable price. Extremely upscale decor and furnishings. Lovely modern bathroom. Meals horribly expensive though 19.50 Euros for breakfast. Just across the street is a Bake Factory for a very good coffee and pastry breakfast for less than 4 Euros.

RH-Weimar, Leiter Front Office at BEST WESTERN Premier Grand Hotel Russischer Hof, responded to this review
Dear Sharon, “Fantastic – wounderfully historical” - to quote your appreciated valuation of your stay, we are pleased to read really, how you enjoyed the high quality furnishings and the historical decorated interior. Therefore we are very delighted to have offered you a memorable and comfortable hospitality service. Concerning the breakfast we want to point out, that there is a quality difference between a large, varied, individually arranged breakfast buffet and an outside bakery shop focused on daily take away demands. So we are convinced, that a comparison in this regard does not correspond with an adequate perception. Thank you so much for your kind and detailed feedback, hoping to welcome you another time in future. Our hotel and the classical attractions of Weimar would like to see you again.

great hotel in a perfect location. Professional friendly staff. Awesome room, wonderful bathroom, sleeping comfort one of the best I have had in all my trips around the world. They also had a kind of pantry kitchen hidden in the room. Dogs allowed but not in the restaurant or the breakfast area. Anyhow... in case we come back to Weimar, this will be our first choice for another stay. The price is not too high compared to what you get.

03/10/2016

This hotel is in a central location, convenient valet parking and walkable to everywhere for lunches and dinner. We booked a suite which was quite spacious with a powder room as well. The staff at reception could not have been more helpful and almost the entire staff spoke great English. Sindi and Max were particularly helpful. Loved the breakfast even though I only had it once.

"Nice property poorly managed."

30/09/2016

The hotel building itself is classic, though the lobby is poorly decorated; and the location is good. The rooms are quiet, even the ones facing the main street and bus stops. The main problem is the management. During my stay, the a/c wasn't working (the room was hot), the air quality was poor, the bathroom scale's battery was dead, the curtains didn't function properly, the wifi was dreadful -- only working intermittently, the fitness area's steam room was broken, etc.. The bathroom light had one setting -- blindingly bright, like a supermarket. The real shocker was no a/c and no internet. The front desk clerks acted surprised about it, but I think they are fibbing and the problems are endemic. When I asked to speak to the manager, they told me he took the weekend off, and usually didn't respond on his cell phone. Never again. A small point: this is the one hotel I've stayed in where they don't offer a free bottle of water.

"Quiet rooms, friendly staff, perfect location"

27/09/2016

My room was small but very quiet and perfectly appointed. All the staff was dedicated and super-friendly. If I have a quibble it was that the wifi was intermittent (but the hotel was completely full and everybody had computers). Also room service was limited and there wasn't a lot of guidance about other meal options. But all in all I was very comfortable and very happy (and I'm a tough critic).

"Fantastic location, long history and great comfort!"

16/09/2016

The name and address tells already a lot. This grand house smells of luxury, culture and great history. Just to mention: It was here Liszt was living when he was still the extrovert and glorious top artist of his time. When you enter the lobby, you feel at once the good atmosphere and friendliness of this hotel, and you see that this is really good old luxury style. Everything is perfect here, and especially the breakfast is a very welcoming and friendly experience. Where else have you seen that all cooked eggs have a hand painted little face on it, and where else did you find a little piece of paper with some nice words from Goethe on each sitting place in the breakfast room? The location could not be better. The old city starts just across the street and you have the best possible starting point to explore Weimar. The hotel has also a very charming café where you can rest and just watch the people passing by, being served with all you could ask for. It's the second time we were here, and we will choose that hotel again next time in Weimar. Very recommendable.

The hotel is just great! The only catch is that if you want to have breakfast, it is very expensive. But the location is perfect, so it is easy to find other options in the morning. Weimar is not a place that has a whole lot to do, though.

This historic hotel is in the centre of Weimar, beautifully appointed and within easy walking distance of all the sights. The only tiny complaint we had was that the Fitness centre was small and airless. Otherwise, a really lovely find!

Nice and steeped in history. Splash out on a suite. Huge balcony. Big bathroom. Old style opulence. Do not expect modern, this is the old 'Grand Hotel' of Weimar where all the celebs from the glorious past stayed and partied. Right in the center of Weimar.

We had a very nice stay in this hotel. It is a very good location directly in the city center of Weimar within walking distance to the relevant historical places. It was especially nice to make a morning run through the 'Park an der Ilm'. We were upgraded to a Junior Suite and our package also included welcome drinks which were really good cocktails in the bar. The room was really spacious and the towels were nice and soft. Only drawback is parking which is quite expensive at 19,50 Euro. However, it is quite easy to find parking for free which requires some walking. It took us some time to get the information from the receptionist.

This hotel has great rooms, a good breakfast buffet, a little expensive, but normal for Europe. Location on the edge of the old town is excellent. Staff friendly and informative. Parking is expensive but also normal for European cities. You have to use the valet parking option. Don't try to do anything else. The hotel has a nice bar but the restaurant offers fixed price menus only. You can find great food within a five minute walk of the hotel. Staff helpful in making recommendations. Ask for a upper story room not facing the street. That way if you need to open the windows to be comfortable at night you will not be bothered by the street noise. We loved the room, the location and helpful friendly staff.

This hotel is in a perfect location if you intend on staying in Weimar .... Clean & comfortable. It is a complete throw back to the '70's. Had to upgrade my room to a suite as a "double or deluxe" room is laughable. My suite was very large, comfortable with two small twin beds placed together, tiny bedding .... a serviceable spot but not luxurious by any stretch. Bathroom was spotless but hadn't been upgraded since I was in high school. Front desk staff are polite but don't seem to be interested in their jobs. No English newspapers. Huge mediocre breakfast buffet. Bright spot was their dining room - an excellent dinner experience. Wonderful food and service.

Excellent check in, valet parking (20 Euros), very friendly service, sumptuous breakfast, however standard rooms are somewhat small, about 180 sqft, but this is fine for 2 days, there may be some noise from the square in front of the hotel, central location, excellent cafe with very nice decor booking through Thomas Cook was a disaster 1 double and 1 single room were booked at the same time and with the same credit card but only the double room was available when Thomas Cook was called the answer was that the single room had not been reserved, no reason specified, no e-mail was sent

A class of its own in Weimar. Old fashioned in the most attractive way: A willingness to serve the customer as good as possible, which has vanished from so many other places, is to be felt from the moment of arrival throughout the whole stay. The team at the hotel is really outstanding: helpful, knowledgeable and always prepared to attend to the guests. The rooms are spacy, tastefully furnished, immaculate clean and well maintained. Breakfast is fabulous, during the day the coffee house lures you in with coffee specialties and chocolates, the restaurant (Anastasia) is an excellent choice for dinner and the Romanow Bar is well stocked for a night cap at the end of the day. Do not miss!

Hotel ticked all the boxes. Easy valet parking (18 Euro), great location in the middle of the city, clean, quiet, nice staff. Grand entrance and big family room. Nicely decorated room (mix of modern and classic, much like the city of Weimar!) with TV, safe, minibar, good airco and very comfy beds, grand bathroom.

This hotel is beautiful, in a perfect location, and gives a feeling of quality and luxury. The breakfast is pricey but well within other hotel breakfast pricing standards, plus it adds champagne and caviar. It was a very pleasant surprise in a town we knew nothing about. A nice stop.

Thank you fellow Trip Advisors. I read your reviews of this hotel and booked it for our visit to Weimar. I took your advice and reserved a room in the historic part. Yes, we did have a large chandelier in our large room, a beautiful armoire and other furniture, and a bathroom with a shower to die for! We looked right out on the square, but thanks to the double windows, our room was super quiet. As for the elevator to our room, the art deco gold/black/mirrors made me feel like I was in a 1920's silent film. We never saw housekeeping; the room was just always perfect. The concierge was so helpful with every question, and the location was perfect for exploring the city. By the way, we took the tram from the train station, and our hotel was right across the street from the tram stop. We did not sign for the breakfast buffet, as I tend to eat lighter at breakfast, so we walked to Residenz Cafe [see my review for that], and it was perfect for us. This hotel is a winner!

Dear guests, This hotel is a winner – we refer to your appreciated valuation of your stay. Revise your attitude and return to the splendor of an ancient century.

Indeed we thank you so much for your kind and detailed feedback, hoping to welcome you another time in future. Our hotel and the classical attractions of Weimar would like to see you again.

Very good room with good facilities. Breakfast was pricey so we ate out at a very nice Italian place down one side of the Rathaus. Bit overbranded with 'Best Western' everywhere, including on cushions. Would be nicer to lean more on its history for that.

Dear guests, we are very pleased to read that you have enjoyed a comfortable stay with us and you were being fascinated by a great location.

The hotel has a history and some nice touches. But overall, it is a decidedly average place. Slow and indifferent service during our stay. The hotel tends to be overrun by large groups. When that happens you are basically on your own. Price is OK.

I stayed in Weimar for one night and found this to be a great hotel. The rooms were very comfortable, and (thankfully) included AC as it was quite warm outside. The location is perfect - just cross the street and you are in the city center/car free area of cafes and shops. The hotel staff was kind and accommodating, especially Axel on the day I left. He remembered my name, held my bag for me, and helped me find a place to charge my rapidly dwindling cell phone - all after I had already checked out!

Dear Amanda, although joining us for one night, we are very pleased to read that we have offered you a memorable stay.

A beautiful hotel! The rooms in the historic wing are fantastic. We booked a Junior Suite and were upgraded to a regular suite. The hotel is perfectly located - you can reach all interesting parts of the city within a 5 min walk. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You have to try the cakes in the "Wiener Kaffeehaus" - delicious!
