    8.4.Very good.
    • 2.0.Poor

      Expedia website said parking available, limited spaces, valet parking extra. When I arrived I was told there was only valet parking at 25 Euros per night. I pointed them to your website and they were very rude about it. Website also says Restaurant but there is no restaurant. Very rude staff.

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      Conveniently located in centre of town next to one of the main bus stops. Luxurious hotel with friendly and efficient staff. Thoughtful points are a small fridge for cooling one's own drinks and keeping food fresh. Used to be the minibar obviously. Umbrella in cupboard and more at the hotel entrance. The safe was very small - only just managed to fit my laptop in. We decided against breakfast, because it was vastly overpriced. We paid a quarter as much in a nearby café.

      Great City Stay

      GREAT GREAT, GREAT! Everything was great! A/C could have been colder, but it worked. Again wonderful property. I did not have the breakfast since I thought it was little over-priced. I parked myself in the self parking about a half a block away (20 Euro)…………. Again great property.

    • 6.0.Good

      Historic but not particularly comfortable

      The public spaces of this hotel are gracious. The comfort of the room is outdated, with amenities including a tinny radio built into the wall next to the bed, 1 packet of instant coffee with an electric kettle, and a bidet. The "air conditioning" seems to consist of a sound effect. The minibar's refrigerator likewise involved no cooling.

      Great location, hotel, staff, and service. Good wifi. Reserved a suite which didn't meet expections. We're given another room. Not sure but I think we were still charged for the suite. Room temperature was very warm and seemed hard to control.

      Great hotel in a must see city -- close to train station and the city attractions. Friendly staff. Make plans in advance to visit the Anna Amalia library (Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek) in Weimar. Weimar and Erfurt are connected by a great regional train service (less than 30 min apart). Make plans to see both cities over the weekend. Lots of train connections via Erfurt (another gorgeous city).
