“The best hotel we had on this independent touring trip to eastern Germany”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

Good friendly service. Light and very large room on top floor. Still a bit short on clothes hanging space! And the whole hotel is a bit weary and could do with a thorough deep clean the way they do in Switzerland. But we had fresh towels each day and the staff were doing their best.
Buffet breakfast was excellent and I was provided with gluten-free cereal and delicious warm rolls.
Location is brilliant - all very green in this area of town which is about three bus-stops south of the centre. It is just opposite the Park on the Ilm (Goethe's garden house etc) and it was very pleasant to stroll through the peaceful park after all the sight-seeing. Tip - buy a Weimar card on arrival so you can hop on and off buses and also get reductions at most of the places. It is worth visiting Belvedere just a few stops further on down, or you can bike down using the hotels bikes for another green and beautiful park.

Pretty good major hotel within about 15 mins walk of Weimar - most directly along the road but through the park is not much further. Got a good deal through laterooms so excellent value, but would have been put off by rack of room and breakfast. Breakfast was one of the best I've had in Germany, not just cold meats/cheese/fruit but cooked breakfast as well: eggs (scrambled/boiled), bacon (streaky), Thuringer sausages (yum!), rosti, and meatballs.
But I was put off by the parking charge: I've not come across a non-city-centre hotel charging €10 a night for parking before (for that I expect them to wash it too), and the internet access price was so ridiculous I didn't even bother trying it. Why do third-world hotels generally have excellent (and free!) internet connections, but hotels in some parts of the "old world" think they can get away with charging the earth for it: for the price that the hotel wants for 2 evenings access you can get a WHOLE MONTH with the local ISP. But was their loss not mine: I just stayed late at the office and did everything from there (and so ate in town), rather than returning to the hotel and using their internet (and eating in their restaurant....)
Oh, and bed was a bit soft so I work up with a sore back.

Negative: High parking fees, and no free internet.

Positive: A bus stop very close to this hotel.

Room Tip: If you do not like traffic noice make sure your room does not face the road.

I recently stayed at this hotel and it was generally acceptable except for one thing: the internet. It had the worst paid internet service I have seen at any hotel. It was expensive, between about 11 and 16 Euros per 24 hours (regular internet and supposedly faster internet, respectively), usually was extremely slow or nonexistent and often didn't work at all in my room. Several times I had to go out to the hallway in order to connect.
I must say there was a free business center with 2 computers, which was generally occupied by kids on Facebook who cared nothing that an adult might need to use the computer for a minute or two to print a boarding pass, so was also completely useless.
If you need to stay connected, avoid this hotel.

We stayed her for three nights in April 2010. In every aspect a very good hotel. Location is a bit far from the centre of Weimar, but it is a nice walk through the park. Very nice bar with friendly staff. We enjoyed sitting there for drinks late at night, coming back from the town. Very good atmosphere.
Nice room with a pretty view, clean. Good amenities.
Only minuspoint was breakfast. It was a busy weekend, so it was a bit of a chaos, but I must say that they handled that very well. There were still some quiet tables in the back and they got everything in order for us in a jiffy.
I would certainly recommend this hotel and would not hesitate going there again in the future. One of the best hotels I know in Germany!

We booked the hotel by phone directly from within Germany.

On arrival by car, we were faced with a parking lot asking for Euro 10 or more for one night, until a nice young man at the reception told us where we could park for free.

We very much enjoyed Weimar but with regard to the hotel, it did not seeem to be so much 4 Star.

E.g. the carpet in the room was full of stains, the entire bathroom was held in an old, beige colour, TV channels were very limited, coffey/tea making facilities (a standard service all over the world) are only for VIP room guest (!), so we were told, and some senior staff at the reception were too busy to be friendly or willing to serve us.

Basically, the entire hotel is run by interns - which they do reasonably well but this should not be the case.

The hotel is used at a conference hotel with lots of busy groups in attendance, also filling up the breakfast area during work days.

Although the location is nice next to Goethe Park, we would probably look for another place next time.

Oh, did I mention the cold water in the pool?

Preface: internet very expensive, about EUR 8/hour, at a reasonable speed !!!! In times like these, internet should be available for free. We spent a holiday in Cambodia and Thailand this July, and rates per hour were less, with some hotels offering WLAN for free, respectively – unbelievable that the Leonardo trails way behind some Asian standard.
Location: huge hotel, about 1 km out off the center / pedestrian zone of Weimar, along Belvederer Allee, that also takes you to the castle of Belvedere, a couple of minutes away (by car);
hotel in a quiet area with front rooms facing a road, and rear rooms local area with villa-style housing, so quiet.
Parking: garage available, parking outside is about EUR 10 per day, cheaper than an hour of internet ;-(
Front-desk: nice welcome, let us move in at 1215 pm, gave me info on prices for the WLAN on the room, however, not mentioning, that the’cheap’ rate is the very slow rate of transmission.
Room: had #545, off the street; two beds in it, furniture you expect in any hotel, offers some space, everything clean, and quiet ! bathroom needs the one and only adjustment (some black and brown stains between tiles, a few only, though)
Breakfast: disappointing, plates and dishes dominate the buffet, in between that 'warehouse-feeling' some limited variety of food for that type of hotel and standard,
so far the least attractive breakfast buffet we’ve had (görlitz/mercure; dresden/elbflorenz; berlin/kanthotel; leipzig/mercure, see reviews);
Staff: first hotel we’ve been in in the recent days where members of the staff don’t greet guests when passing them (e.g. on floor)
but it was quiet in there !
