Peaceful Parkside Hotel in Weimar
Posted Aug 5, 2007
This is a peaceful hotel just across from the Park an der Ilm (Goethe Park). The staff is so accommodating and kind. I was first given a room on the sixth floor with no view of the park, and when I asked for a room with a view, they moved me to the fourth floor to a room facing the park. Floors 3 and 4 are the business/executive floors. The business floors are much nicer than the other floors (with complimentary water, a coffee machine), so be sure to ask for a room on one of those floors. Breakfast was excellent. The staff in the restaurant was very attentive and friendly. The spa area is relaxing. The pool is fine for some light lap-swimming, there is a nice Jacuzzi: all was clean. The sauna area is very well equipped, with dunking tubs, cold showers, foot baths, and a Ruheraum (resting room). The workout room is small, but who wants to use a machine, when just across the street there are miles of beautiful running paths? There is even a Bowling Bistro in the hotel, with two full-size bowling lanes. There is a bus stop just across the street, and with Bus Line 1 you can get from the Bahnhof to the hotel and back. Line 1 also takes you to all points of interest in town. The walk from the hotel to town is just about 15 minutes through the park, and it is a lovely walk. I would certainly stay here again, and I recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Weimar.
