    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.

    The property is very convenient to old town Jena and very clean and comfortable. My room was a bit smaller than a standard room in US, but fine.

    The rooms and the facility were generally very clean. The breakfast was excellent, although a little pricey. I didn't interact with the staff much but they seemed capable and friendly.

    Upmarket choice in Jena

    I booked a deluxe room at the Steigenberger Esplanade and was very satisfied with everything. The hotel is very well located, it's elegant and stylish albeit not in an eccentric way. Our deluxe room was huge, with full-length panorama windows overlooking the city. The bed was comfortable, everything was clean and tidy. Good choice and quality ingredients at breakfast. You can ask for an omelette to be made on top of what is already displayed in the buffet. Parking was expensive at 17 euros a night, so I moved my car to a nearby street with free parking. I was, however, able to park for up to 15 minutes while we checked in and took our bags upstairs. Directly next door to the hotel there is a shopping arcade.

    Quality business stay

    Friendly service from checking in, giving me some hot water to make my Lemsip to booking a taxi. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Having air-con was a bonus too. Great breakfast.
