6/10 Good

A hotel that suffered from COVID. It feels dead in the hotel. The staff was rude when I checked in. And pretty much the place was good for sleeping in, but it had nothing else to offer. The room was clean, but the bed was squeaking. Unbelievable how much the place has declined in a matter of two years. I stayed for four nights, chose not to get the sheets changed to help the environment; but ultimately it felt rather sketchy.

Esplanade: very recommended unique place to stay.
I tried more locations to stay in Jena for my business trips since jan 2019. Esplanade, I have to say, is the best when I compare service, location and the range of services offered including definitely a best breakfast. For my needs specifically also the 24 hour open reception and always available parking, Esplanade is a perfect match on what I need when in Jena at a price that is very competitive. For my needs, definitely a best ratio between quality and service and cost. I wish I had this option for accommodation on other business or private trips in others countries I am visiting regularly as a sales person. Good job Esplanade and fingers crossed for anything to come this special year and years after.
