Convenient location.

Good, standard business hotel. Internet is a bit slow, and very inconvenient that you have to take 2 different elevators from the reception to the rooms. Shower head (water pressure) could be improved. Other than that, overall a great stay.

Newly renovated, nice rooms, nice location.

Stayed at this hotel for a few nights. It is very nicely located in Jena between the train stations and the main shopping/dining streets. The finishings are nice and the rooms are average sized. The staff was very friendly. My room was very well cleaned by the staff. The only negatives: There was some noise transfer from other rooms and there is no coffee maker in the room.

They really should offer free Wi-Fi like other decent hotels. It seems ridiculous that one has to pay extra for internet access, especially given that this hotel caters mostly to business travelers. Make your money some other way. The food at Kardamom, the restaurant in the hotel, is fantastic.

1) 30 mins free Internet only is unacceptable 2) Windows were really dirty, insisted on a room with clean ones.

Nice hotel just watch for high incidental charges

Posted May 11, 2013
Pros: Lovely hotel
Cons: Incidental charges are way too high
Location: Centre of Jena
Great location and lovely hotel BUT booking confirmed free internet but hotel suggested this was free for 30 minutes only and wanted to charge me 14 EUR for 5 hours internet until I complained PLUS room service charge is 10 EUR (highest I have seen anywhere in the world for this class of hotel). So be careful.

A safe selection.

We stayed at Jena because it is close to Weimar, where the hotels were full. It is a good alternative. It is a business hotel, rates are good on the weekend. A typical four star business hotel. A shopping mall is next door.

Great hotel in central Jena

Posted Jun 28, 2011 on Hotels.com
This hotel is in the center of Jena, adjacent to the university and close to most attractions. Beautiful entry, rooms clean and quite large. Courteous and helpful staff. We would stay here again.

Central location in Jena

Posted Oct 13, 2009
Modern hotel with atrium featuring glass-walled lifts. Large comfortable rooms. Easy walk from rail stations (Jena Paradise - 800 metres; Jena West - 700 metres). Centrai to retail, university and educational facifilites, museums, food and drinking facilites, etc.

Wonderful as always

Posted Jul 20, 2009
Lovely hotel! The staff are friendly, the rooms quiet and spotless, the spa is empty and well maintained. The hotel is built round a semi-circular atrium with glass lifts in the middle so it all feels very airy. The rooms out to the back have a lovely view out over the leafy suburbs and hills. The restaurant/bar is very good and the underground parking facilities (charged separately) have plenty of spaces. Oh, and for the ladies, there's a handily sited shopping mall just steps away.
