“Hotel is 2*, fitness center is 4*”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2009

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.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2009

We stayed here for a midweek in Aug. The hotelrooms are ok, but our Airco was broken which i mentioned at our day of arrival. When we left, is was still not fixed, which ment having trouble sleeping with temps. of around 35C that week.
The shower has not enough pressure, which is another annoying thing, aswell is paying to parc your car.
On the other hand, the staff is helpfull and friendly, the outdoor-pools view is amazing, and the food is good.
The eveningbuffet has plenty of choise, and drinking(wine, beer also) is included till 10p.m.
On each floor is a vending machine to buy some cans of soda, which you can buy for the rediculous price of 2,75€ p/can.( about 4$).
The hotel provides you with free cards to the S-bahn which, after a 15 min. walk, takes you downtown Jena. Jena is a real nice town to stroll an afternoon. Also we made some beautifull hikes in the Jena surroundings.
At our arrival day the internet-pc(not free) was broken, and was still broken when we left.

Summary; A nice hotel, when eveything works, but when something is out of order, fixing it is not a priority. You should not pay more then 350 € for a midweek.
In spite of a couple of issues(maybe we had some badluck), i would recommend comming here, but make sure you don't pay to much.

This 4star hotel offers great service for reasonable room rates.
Enjoy your breakfast in the winter garden restaurant.
