The star of this hotel is the attached fitness center that is often used by the residents of the town. The fitness center is modern and well maintained and offers bowling, tennis, badminton, cardio classes, and spa type treatments. The hotel part is very much an after thought.
Pros: Very clean rooms, modern bathroom (including fixtures), price includes unlimited use of the public transit (but all Jena hotels include this). They offer an in-room safe and have excellent hot water in the shower/tub/sink.
Cons: In-room wifi is 8-euro per hour! Over a 10 minute walk from the last metro stop on the line. This means it will take you 30 minutes to get anywhere useful during peak times, and up to an hour during off peak, depending on what line is running. The windows in the rooms don't have screens on them, so you will get insects if you leave the window open, but the air conditioning doesn't function well (only seems to move air, not cool the air). There are fewer than 10 tv stations, only one of which is in english, and there are absolutely no signs or written material in english. The breakfast buffet is also a bit of a joke by any standard. All of the bread choices are the floppy soft american style, the fruit salad seemed like it came from a can with some added chunks of apple. All of the juices are from concentrate, and the glasses are only around 4oz. Hotel patrons (mostly saggy Germans) strut around the place in bath robes.
I recommend this hotel only if everything else is sold out in Jena. Definitely not a four star hotel.
