Hotel is in an easy to reach location, close to many local amenities. Rooms not overly large but totally adequate. Small ensuite bathroom but shower was brilliant. staff very friendly and helpful. Best thing especially if you are veggie or vegan was the food - outstanding! Only downside was lack of tea/coffee facilities in bedroom,but this is normal with German... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in a 'category III' room for a scientific meeting - got very little sleep for 2 of them as the room was right next to a tram line and they roll past at all hours, no effective sound insulation to speak of. Internet connection was weak and flaky, once the network disappeared entirely for over... More

The hotel is nicely located close to the train station and the town center. The hotel was kept immaculately clean and there was a nice varied buffet selection for breakfast. The rooms may seem a little old fashioned for some. There is no safe, but you do get a wardrobe that you can lock and take the key and a... More

This was a business visit and as the conference dinner was to be held in the hotel I decided to stay here. The building has quite a bit of history as the plaque of the wall outlines. Although most rooms are traditional style I had a very large modern room that looked to be recently renovated. Nice big bathroom too.... More

My wife and I enjoyed the central location at the edge of the Altstadt and across from the Main Building of the University. The rooms are adequate and the breakfast quite good. The front desk is helpful. we found the rooms quite quiet. The over 500 year history is entrancing. The prices are reasonable. We are glad we stayed at... More

Nice room, though not too large. Centraly located, walking distance from evrything. Great breakfast buffet. Very good restaurant (though bit expansive). The place is full of history, very recommended.

Excellent service, friendly staff and a wonderful continental breakfast. The hotel is within walking distance to city center, local restaurants and bars. The rail system stop in front of hotel and easy to access to all of Jena. -Shawn

The hotel is located not far from Jena's Pardies station and near to the FA-university. The service is excellent and the rooms are consistent with a historic hotel. One problem is that there is no air conditioning in the rooms. The week I stayed had some days in 30+C Temperatures. Opening the window helps but then introduces noise. Breakfast was... More

We stayed 4 days/3 nights in this hotel for business purposes. The room and bathroom were spacious and spotlessly clean, furniture was old but well kept. There was a lovely historical atmosphere present both in the room as well as halls and doorways. Breakfast was ample. Staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel isn't exactly in the city center but... More

The Schwaerzer Baer is torn between two epochs. On the one hand it is on the site of the eponymous inn where Martin Luther made an appearance in 1522, an event that is proudly recorded on a giant canvas as you enter the hotel. On the other hand, it more prominently bears the legacy of a socialist-era renovation that invites... More
