I had a wonderful hotel experience at Steigenberger. What made me smile the most was the lovely house keeping last lining my toileteries up so nicely and folding my clothes neatly. I loved the breakfast buffet. Great variety and everything was so fresh. I enjoyed the gym it was small but well equipped. The dinner at the restaurant was gorgeous...

Hotel is in town centre. Great location and we highly recommend this hotel. It is next to the shopping centre and near Jena West train station. Staff are efficient and helpful. The restaurant serves a variety of dishes and excellent service.

Best place to stay in Jena. Perfect location, great food, very clean, decent pricing, the only downside is the free-internet that is painfully slow, but you can buy an upgrade for $9 / day. Highly recommended.

I spent three nights there and I liked it a lot. Highly recommended. Also, staff is very friendly and courteous. Beside is a shopping mall, very convenient if you need something quickly. Walkable distance from train station.

We liked this hotel for its convenient location and overall facility quality. The two major exceptions are the unusably slow free internet service and the fact the room rates do not include breakfast.

The hotel ist great.the location could not be better since is in the center of the city attached to the uni campus and close to the train station. The rooms have everything you might need and everything at a more than affordable price.

Was a reasonable price during the expensive Oktoberfest period, with friendly staff, impeccable clean location, and reasonable bus/subway connection to downtown. Quieter than staying in city centre, and close to the Englisher Garden. Not many restaurants or shopping nearby.
