Dorint Am Goethepark Weimar

Reviewed 26 March 2012

I stayed at the Dorint for two nights and was very pleased with it. Check-in was easy and helpful. English is spoken well by most of the staff, and there is no problem about it. I find that opening with 'Guten Tag' followed by 'Good day' helps, as it first acknowledges the country I am in, and then gives the person some warning that I am about to say something in a foreign language.

I got a really big room for the normal rate - I presume it was what they had available, I can't imagine they are all this big. The sleeping area was spacious, and there was a connected lounge with TV and kitchenette. the bathroom was reasonable sized, bright and clean. Work desk was reasonable, wardrobe space good, this was a gem for the price. There was no intrusive noise, I slept well.

Breakfast buffet was very good. It was a bit busy with few free tables, there appeared to be some tour coaches, but no problem. Service was prompt and friendly. I didn't eat dinner there, but it seemed to have good offerings as well. The bar beside reception is well run, very good bar staff who are attentive and friendly without being intrusively so. Beers are reasonably priced for a hotel.

There are many restaurants in a small square within a few minutes walk (left out the main door, left again, first right). The Italian 'Versillio' is really good, nice pasta, huge thin-base pizzas, reasonable selection of Italian wine, very modest price. It's obviously popular. There's another Italian restaurant and a Mexican place just off the square, a couple of German beer/food bars and some cafes. Beyond that, Schiller street is a shopping street.

The Dorint is right beside Bauhaus University, about ten minutes walk from the old centre and the conference hall, and about 20 minutes walk (down hill) from the railway station. There is also a bus connection to/from the station. If you are arriving by train, you can usually get a local public transport transfer added to your rail ticket for little or no extra cost. Not sure if you can also get a more general transit pass like this as well. In any case, you can get to most places in Weimar on foot.

My only negative remark is that you must pay for internet, it's about €10/day.

Overall, a good experience, I would stay here again.

Overall this was a good clean hotel. On arrival our room was not ready and we were shown to the lobby lounge/bar and a wonderful afternoon tea of cakes, biscuits & coffee was provided to us at no cost. There are no conceirge services at this hotel and one had to carry our luggage and find our room ourselves. The room was adequate but not overly comfortable. Breakfast was good and we had dinner at one of the restaurants both evenings. The meal was delicious and exquisitely presented. Two of the finest meals of our 3 months European holiday.. The restaurant was small and iintimate and overlooked Goethe's house and museum. The hotel is believed to be on of the best in Weimar. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Dorint Am Goethepark is a very nice hotel. I have only positive remarks concerning this establishment. Rooms are nice, service is very friendly and the location is great (next to the center and by the wonderful Goethepark). Also, the restaurant is surprisingly good.

I would strongly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is on the way down, probably up to date 5 years ago but lack of investment since it became part of Dorint brand shows up. However, rooms are comfortable and location is excellent to visit Weimar easily by foot.

Welcome at front desk is not very good. Also although I asked for spa menu and booking procedure, the woman said I just had to go through the front desk. But when a few hours later I came to book, I was told by another employee that it was too late for that day... Only when I showed strong disappointment did I get a booking for 1/2h later.

The massage itself was really nice, although do not expect a spa. It is just a normal room with a massage table and a small sauna.

Using the hotel garage is not really needed since some streets not far away offer parking for 12h at only 2 euros.

The breakfast was good, although under average for Germany, and we were happy to have a very helpful staff who arranged a table outside for us.

I would recommend just for a one night stay to visit the city.

Excellent option for Weimar, a nice and clean hotel with superb rooms. Breakfast and internet a bit too expensive. regarding parking it is better to opt for the public parking garage (same prices and next to each other), as the hotel garage is very small and not suitable for medium and bigger cars

One night in Weimar. The Dorint is a modern building located opposite a park quite close to the historic center.

Reception, rooms everything top class. Garage easily reachable directly from room floor.
Good breakfast with a wast choice.

Given the quality the price is good value.

We stayed in Weimar for two nights during Easter. The hotel is quite new. The rooms are decent in size and very clean - what you would expect in a Dorint. Breakfast was plentiful (they claim to have the "best breakfast in town" and we could well imagine that it is true). What we liked best about the hotel was the location: it is right at the Park and just outside of the old city, so you leave the hotel and you either turn right (to go jogging) or you turn left (and you see the back of Goethe's house). The bar is a typical hotel bar - no more, no less. We got a massage in the (small) recreation area that we liked.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The hotel Dorint Am Goethepark Weimar with its central location is not only the ideal starting point for a city trip to the former Capital of Culture of 1999, it is also the perfect choice for a very special business meeting or conference, which will be remembered for a long time to come. Embark on a journey of discovery through a city where Goethe lived and worked, and which the Duchess Anna Amalia and her son, Carl August, transformed into a center of creativity. To this very day, one can sense this unique atmosphere in the heart of the free state of Thuringia, cradle of the German classic arts. The Weimar cultural calendar includes an entire year of events, with the highlight being the arts festival and celebrations around Goethe's birthday. However, in addition to the cultural highlights, the delightful Thuringian landscape and natural surroundings are a big attraction: enjoy a hike or a lovely, long bicycle ride along the river Ilm. Or visit the many legendary sightseeing attractions around Weimar like the Wartburg castle or Castle Grosskochberg with its quaint theater. Are you fond of onions? Then don't miss out on a visit to the state's largest public festival, the Weimar Onion Market in October! The Dorint Hotel Am Goethepark Weimar - with its fine ambience including art nouveau and Bauhaus elements and comfortable rooms, will ensure that your stay is as pleasant as possible. Perhaps you will enjoy a similar experience to that of the famous poet, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and will return to visit our fair city on many more occasions. To paraphrase the great poet himself: 'Where on earth would you find so many good things in so small a place...and I have been almost everywhere! - But Weimar is a place to which I always gladly returned.' We look forward to welcoming you again and again! ... more   less
