              • The location is excellent and breakfast is cheaper in one of the many good cafes in the town. A perfect hotel that puts you right in the middel of historic Weimar and service is fast and efficient. Rooms are very nice, the keller restaurant has also very tasty food.

                Unreliable and not complimentary wlan internet connection.

              • The location is perfect, Weimar is lovely town and the hotel is in the main square. The building is beautiful, the decoration of the room is tasteful Art Deco and Bauhaus, staff in general are very helpful and nice. Windows opening over the outdoor section of the restaurant, food is truly great.

                Prices were refined and the TV set was small and old.
