I have stayed at this hotel three times in the last year for a total of about 40 days. My boyfriend is in the military and Weiden is about 30 minutes away from base so it's convenient for him to go back and forth.
We stayed in January 2012, June 2012 and October 2012.
The staff is great, very helpful and most speak enough English to hold a conversation and get recommendations. The location is great, it opens to the City Center and there is a park about a 2 minute walk away. The breakfast is a typical European breakfast, I will say the jelly/jam they serve is awesome. There is 1 English TV station which is nice. The hotel and all 3 rooms i've stayed in have been very clean. As far as European beds go these are comfortable. There is no restaurant but there are several just outside their door. Zoe's is our favorite and there is also an Italian restaurant about 3 doors down that has great pizza for takeout. The hotel has a wifi terminal in the reception/bar area that is free or they can provide you with information for paid wifi through T-Mobile. I prefer to pay and then I can use it throughout my travels at the T-Mobile hotspots which are pretty common in Germany. The train station is a 10-15 minute walk from the hotel and I have taken countless day trips as Weiden seems to be about 1-2 hours away from many amazing towns. Although I have explored every inch of Weiden and love the town too so there is plenty to see without leaving the town.
They used to have a few parking spots right outside the hotel but with the construction going on those have been removed and you must use the parking garage across the street which is a 1-2 minute walk away.
We have stayed in the basic double and the suite rooms. The suite is nice as it has a sitting area so for my longer stays I prefer that one. The suite we stayed in had a smaller bathroom than the basic room but both were reasonable size for European standards.
There is no air conditioning and my stay during the end of June beginning of August was incredibly hot. The hotel provided a fan but it was no match for the humidity and high temperatures.
They have construction going on until sometime in 2013. When they tell you there might be noises, they aren't kidding. It's loud, it starts early and it's right outside the window. My stays pre-construction were quiet so once it's complete I assume it will be back to being quiet.
European hotels are different than American hotels. I'm sort of a snob about where I stay and I love the Klassik. The only surprises I have come across there have been nothing but pleasant.
