I have known this hotel from previous events to which I was invited to. Returning to Jena, I wanted to try the hotel for an overnight stay. I really like this hotel because it's so authentical old-style and still has so many original elements inside. Room service however has to work on their performance! My room hadn't been cleaned with... More

I had a two-nights stay in this hotel. Besides the location - just in front of the main building of the university, and less than 5 min walk from the city center - and the breakfast - abundant and good quality - I didn't see the reason of 4 stars to this hotel. I arrived with a huge backpack and... More

What you think of this hotel will depend very much on what you are looking for. It is old fashioned: there is no tea or coffee available in the rooms, but there is a well-stocked and reasonably priced mini-bar; there is no air conditioning; the downstairs rooms are spacious and the shower efficient; it is not a "generic" hotel but...

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

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
