The friendlyness and kindness of the staff
A comfortable place, staff friendly but not very good with their English, restaurant good and will happily provide room service (great news if you have a little baby). WIFI not available in all rooms (despite hotel claiming they have it), bathroom is quite ordinary.
Very friendly staff.
Good breakfast, free internet!, friendly staff, sauna/whirlpool, comfortable room. Only German TV channels (no BBC, CNN, or TV5 Le Monde).
The hotel provides good amenities, comfortable rooms for the price. The location is bad. I went there by car, but had difficulties finding it. It is located far from the center, and in middle of Plattenbau district.
The quiet location The ability to open a window and control the disired temperature at a level of simply switching off the heating No, whenever in Jena I stay in this hotel
Wintergarden very nice. Service during Breakfast to improve ! In parhouse too dark.
I have no idea of value for money. It would have been nice to have tea and coffee in the rooms. It would have been nice to have WiFi as standard.
I ate dinner with two others at the hotel one evening and it was very good. The staff was very accomodating and helpful. If something wasn't on the menu they tried their best to make something acceptable...and it worked out great for the two with special requests.. I found it a bit expensive, and there was just one flat pillow, but that was fine for me. The exercise facilities are minimal...no weights, just a stationary bike and treadmill. They tend to focus on spa services instead of fitness offerings. It would be nice to have a small gym for travelers who don't get a chance to get away from their work other than their night at the hotel.
The hotel was a pleasant surprise. The rooms were renovated and very nice to stay in; they were large and clean. The breakfast was pretty good and the restaurant really nice to start your day in. Although situated in a region of Jena, which is dominated by big blocks of flats, the view of the hotel (at least from my room) is a nice and quite green scenery. Most of the services were extra (e.g. parking, which was also relatively expensive imho). As the hotel is situated in the suburbs, you should better have a car to drive to the centre (which was nevertheless always easy to get to, we didn't face any traffic problems even in the morning).
Awesome breakfast! Needs an iron and tea making facilities in the room
The decor. It was really nice
Stayed 5 nights with no change of bed linen throughout the stay. Not good value for money €135
Clean and comfortable The bar was closed
The hotel is situated in the centrum of the city. The personnel of the hotel is perfect, rooms are very comfortable.
friendly staff, central location and very good value for money
Very helpful staff and excellent rooms with good facilities. Very central in Jena and convenient for everything. For Booking.com: The hotel were expecting us, but had their normal room rate allocated to the group, not the discounted room rate I had booked through you. It was not a problem, and the hotel accepted this and took a photocopy of your booking reservation that I had printed off, but I would have expected the hotel to know about, and adjust, the room rate before our arrival.
Impressive architure, good sized rooms, good location, clean and well presented room. Staff polite and friendly. The mattress was uncomfortable - you can feel the bed springs digging into you, there should, as a minimum be an additional padded mattress cover. Also, the toilet paper is very cheap, like using sandpaper!!!
Spacy room No atmoshpere, more a hospital than a hotel.
The hotel is in an ideal city centre location. It is light, airy, aesthetically pleasing and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and the reception staff speak excellent English. The air-conditioning is centrally managed. While requests for changes in room temperature could be (and were) implemented via the reception, we missed the lack of control actually in the room - for example in the middle of the night.
modern building, fairly clean and comfortable really good variety of food in the breakfast buffet but it was rather costly too
Good location and rich breakfast. Friendly reception. N/A
very clean room, good breakfast no
Everything: room, food (very good restaurant), facilities, friendly staff A minibar and a safe were not in the hotelroom, would be nice.
I stayed just for one night but I enjoyed the stay very much, particularly for the room and the silence. no
Excellent location - close to town centre and also overlooking the Apolda castle.
Very helpful staff, comfortable room in a historic setting close to central Jena. Good food, definitely not an impersonal chain hotel. Air con would have been nice, but it would be difficult, I imagine, to install it in such a historic building.
Central location, a bit too high price The internet did not work and th staff did not seem to care
Breakfast was good. The hotel is located near the city center, about 10 minutes by foot. The hotel does not have air conditioner and during out stay it was really hot. We left the window opened during the night but the temperature didn't drop
Apart from room, the hotel feels like a solid, traditional, high quality hotel. Restaurant was good - good food and good service. The room decor was a little old fashioned, bar service was very slow, checkout was slow too.
breakfast and proximity to the downtown very poor english
very central and at night it was very quiet!
Good Free internet access. Good Size room. Good restaurant. Nice slightly old fashioned ambiance. Limited English TV channels. Poor parking.
Air-conditioning was marginal to ineffective
This historic hotel serves a very well breakfast. A wireless interenet is also available directly from the room. A ventilation noise in the buth room can be minimized.
Hotel is in a good location and is clean and tidy. It is the third stay at this hotel and the restaurant food is lovely.
Very good service level and well positioned for my visit to a local company - Jenoptik.
Good breakfast, good food at restaurant Difficult for traveler with many bags using public transportation
Near the E40 motorway. Great if you're tired of driving and looking for a place to sleep for as little money as possible but with a great comfort of well-known hotel chain. I found it quite unusual to have a bathroom sink in the bedroom. The rest of the bathroom appliances (bathtub, toilet, etc.) are in the bathroom, but sink was separated. That reminds me old, built in mid-50's or mid-60's hotels. It's not bad, it's just a bit odd.
Clean hotel, good food, relevant location. The airconditioning was too loud to keep it on during the night. Opening the window was possible though and did the trick as good.
It was clean and friendly and what you expect from a Best Western... We found it perfect as a stop for our road trip... it was easy access right off the motorway...
The room is quiet good. Pillow is usable (often in germany there are too soft). WiFI is available for free in all room. Breakfast is good. The climate control system is old; not usable for all the night. The control informations are written in German. There are 4 steps in the middle of the corridor; you have to lift your luggage.
Central location in Jena The smokey atmosphere in the bar/restaurant - we chose to eat out each night.
Nice clean room and good service. Food excellent. Had to pay for internet access. Because of location it gets noisy at night with people passing by and talking loudly.
Good room, location. decent price Restaurant service was slow. At checkout some restaurant service was added to the bill even though no extra service had been provided. After discussing the point, however, the extra charged was removed from the bill.
position in the city center, big room, very nice restaurant in the building cleaning was not done in a proper way
Friendly staff, safe private parking, food OK. Not excessively clean - though generally acceptable - but you cannot expect too much at this price. Parking close to the hotel but extremely difficult to find without detailed instructions - the gate is not marked in any way.
very large room / good beds the restaurant will not enter soon into the top 10 of the best places to eat in Jena !!!
Good location, close to the center; size of room and bathroom The bedlines were too old, breakfast was poor
well located, characteristic hotel with old tradition blanket too hot
I just like this hotel. It is not a modern one you find in any country, but a house with a charm created by its history. Everything was fine, close to the center of Jena and University. Hope to come back. My room was one the second floor. The stair case is OK, but for an older person may be a problem. I think there is no elevator in the hotel.
no elevator to room on 3rd floor; no parking space; had to park in public garage several blocks away. Expensive when compared to other hotels during same trip
The hotel is good,clean and very central. It has an underground carpark which is essential. n/a
The staff was very helpful and the stay was very pleasant.
Good location, parking garage underneath, bed was good. Free internet acces at the computer in the bar. The corridors to the rooms don't look very cosy. The bathroom is a prefab unit. Additional charges apply for wireless internet.
The Service is good. The workers there are always friendly, patience with smiles. The price for the loundry is too expensive.
It was very central, adequate in comfort, had air con, which was very useful on a hot central European night. It had a feel on the former DDR in its decor, plastic wood and a sense of austerity. Generally, impersonal.
It was centrally located enabling us to walk around the city in the evening to see some of Jena's sites. Nothing at all
size of room with seperate lounge.
I stayed at Cafe Hoyer because it was half way to my destination. I wanted somewhere clean comfortable and cheap and the hotel ticked all the boxes. The owners were charming, friendly and helpful. Sadly I was too tired to take advantage of the beer garden and other facilities so am unable to give them an accurate rating.
Location 10km from Weimar, the purpose of our stay. Staff polite but not friendly. This seemed to be a B&B, not a hotel
