Really everything about this hotel is so fancy, clean, and upscale! The staff really sets the bat high - they literally bend over backwards to accommodate their guests. I actually lost my wallet in the small coffee shop attached to the hotel, went about my day and didn't realize it was missing until much later. I saw I had a... More

Beautiful hotel - very historical Have a standard twin and it is lovely. Can't believe all the "comforts" at a very reasonable price. Extremely upscale decor and furnishings. Lovely modern bathroom. Meals horribly expensive though 19.50 Euros for breakfast. Just across the street is a Bake Factory for a very good coffee and pastry breakfast for less than 4 Euros.

Good location, friendly staff. My room, supposedly "double or twin" was relatively small, and would have definitely been tight for 2 people. Very quiet however (4th floor on the rear side). The fitness room is very small and underequipped.

great hotel in a perfect location. Professional friendly staff. Awesome room, wonderful bathroom, sleeping comfort one of the best I have had in all my trips around the world. They also had a kind of pantry kitchen hidden in the room. Dogs allowed but not in the restaurant or the breakfast area. Anyhow... in case we come back to Weimar,... More

This hotel is in a central location, convenient valet parking and walkable to everywhere for lunches and dinner. We booked a suite which was quite spacious with a powder room as well. The staff at reception could not have been more helpful and almost the entire staff spoke great English. Sindi and Max were particularly helpful. Loved the breakfast even... More

The hotel building itself is classic, though the lobby is poorly decorated; and the location is good. The rooms are quiet, even the ones facing the main street and bus stops. The main problem is the management. During my stay, the a/c wasn't working (the room was hot), the air quality was poor, the bathroom scale's battery was dead, the... More

My room was small but very quiet and perfectly appointed. All the staff was dedicated and super-friendly. If I have a quibble it was that the wifi was intermittent (but the hotel was completely full and everybody had computers). Also room service was limited and there wasn't a lot of guidance about other meal options. But all in all I... More

The name and address tells already a lot. This grand house smells of luxury, culture and great history. Just to mention: It was here Liszt was living when he was still the extrovert and glorious top artist of his time.

The hotel is just great! The only catch is that if you want to have breakfast, it is very expensive. But the location is perfect, so it is easy to find other options in the morning. Weimar is not a place that has a whole lot to do, though.

This historic hotel is in the centre of Weimar, beautifully appointed and within easy walking distance of all the sights. The only tiny complaint we had was that the Fitness centre was small and airless. Otherwise, a really lovely find!
