Long waiting times at elevators. Often it was better to take the stairs. Checkout was a slow process 15 Minutes waiting... Queues were at both counters. A third counter would make sense.

The package I had - including 3 course dinner, a 3 days Thuringen ticket and a traveller guide - was very much value for not to much money! Clean and really good ´´4 stars plus´´ (in fact: five stars)hotel very near to the city.

The hotel has a really five stars service and outlook // the breakfast however is not very impressive, in fact a bit poor choice and not that tasty.

You could have some reservations about some coulors in room and bathroom, beds are very good and lighting in the bath is perfect.

Central Jena is not suited for people with no previous knowledge of town. Our GPS was thouroghly confused.

Warum müssen auch Top-Hotels Duschvorhänge statt Duschkabine haben ???
