Certificate of Excellence
The family run hotel is just a short walk through the park. The Goethestraße with its old trees and flowers, together with its impressive art nouveau and Wilhelminian style villas is an oasis of peace in the middle of this lively capital city. Just by entering the hotel you will be thrilled by the lobby and public areas, its individual charm and collection of antiques paying homage to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe where the hotel gets its name from. The owner family has tastefully decorated all rooms with loving care and attention to detail. You can expect a friendly atmosphere and 65 comfortable rooms with bath/WC, color TV, telephone and free WiFi connection. "La Cocagna" restaurant with its Mediterranean flair services a selection of regional and Mediterranean bistro dishes, with select wines by the bottle or glass if you wish. The "Weimar" meeting room is available for your meetings and events. For smaller events the Library is available, where you can pick up a good book.

If in town only for day or max two, then I'd say that good choice. Small and bit old, but rooms are big. Noise from street comes in like there is no windows, but luckily the streets around are not heavily crowded. Room, besides that...More

This is supposed to be a four star hotel but falls far short to the others we stayed in during our trip round Germany. On arrival the guy on reception was not too interested in the guests, no forthcoming help on how to find town,...More
