Hotel Pension am Goethehaus
Ranked #2 of 28 Weimar B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 7, 2012

This small and spare hotel is wonderfully located, just steps from Goethe's house and museum, and a pleasant walk from Goethe's summer house and other attractions. Our nicely-sized, very clean but somewhat austere room overlooked the main square. The woman who greeted us was friendly and very helpful—but beyond her, there appeared to be minimal staff. There is no elevator—and absolutely no offer of help with our luggage up the three flights of stairs. The man who seemed to be either the manager or owner was at the edge of rude. When we stopped at the desk to ask a question, he first ignored us and then asked "Is there a problem?" Breakfast was served in a pleasant, garden-level room and was better than the average hotel offering. Service was a bit brusque. (Unfortunately, the breakfast lady chose to make a rude comment about Americans to another patron just after we arrived. I assume she thought we wouldn't understand. Sigh.) Parking was available in the back of the hotel for Euros 7.50 a day. Finding the entrance to the lot and getting in and out was a bit tricky. Fortunately, the nice greeting lady escorted us in our car to the lot. I recommend this hotel for the location and for its competitive pricing.

We stayed one night, travelling on holiday as a couple with a single friend. Nicely renovated hotel, modern and quite stylish. Air conditioning would have been an advantage. Our room overlooked the main square, we were only yards from the Goethehaus.Our friend's room overlooked the inner courtyard and had a small balcony, an advantage in the hot weather.
Handy for restaurants & sights, only disadvantage is lack of parking in the immediate vicinity. Unloading of luggage is possible outside the main entrance, however. We usually only book places with secure parking when touring, but the location of this made it worthwhile. We used a secure underground car park not far away; not cheap, either.

Brand new hotel in a really tastefully renovated building. Wooden floors everywhere, also in the rooms. Noise isolation is very good. The beds are great and the shower furnishings are of high quality. Rooms are not the biggest, but spacious enough.
There is no AC so it can get warm, but in this case you can open the window. I suggest requesting a room at the back of the hotel if the weather is very warm, so you can open the windows without too much noise from the square.
The location is the absolute best you can get in Weimar, all the way in the old center and located only 50M from the main attraction, the Goethe Haus.
The breakfast buffet is well laid out. For dinner you can go out into the city, with at least 10 options within a 150M radius.
The hotel manager was very nice and helped us with a late check-in and printing our train tickets.
We had a great stay, in my view you cannot go wrong with this place.

We stayed one night in Weimar and were glad to stay at the Hotel Pension am Goethehaus with our family of three. The room was a good size, very clean, very modern, and with a great view over the Goetheplatz, right across from the Goethehaus. You feel almost like you're breathing in all that amazing Weimar history when you stay right in the center of things. Wonderful to just walk to all these historic places. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Breakfast was generous and wonderfully presented.

Room Tip: if you want an even quieter room, I think there may be some in the back but it's so much nicer t...
