“Perfect locality, average room, nice stuff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

I arrived to the hotel at midnight, it is very well localized in the city centre so there was no problem to find it. The receptionist was very kind and helpful, the room was little small but as I had been alone, it was no problem, the bathroom looks quite strange and it looks quite... old? The breakfest was ok also for the vegetarians, it was a business trip but if I am traveling just for a individual trip, it is quite costly hotel.

Room Tip: I had the room with the view to the city center, but it was still quiet

Green Features: the hotel act a a ECO-friendly, but they ECOshower gel/shampoo was really terrible (make the skin so dry and itchy) and I did not see any other ECO-practices

We stayed at the Ibis on 3 separate occasions during our 2 1/2 week trip to Germany, each time coming back to Jena as a home base. They always had rooms available and the staff was friendly. They are located right in the middle of Jena so it's a perfect spot to go to the Christmas Market or do anything in town.

The beds were comfortable but the walls were thin. On one night, I was talking on Skype to someone in the U.S. and I guess I was a little loud because the person next door to me banged on the wall. You could hear if someone was taking a shower from the hallway.

The rooms were clean and very small. The bathrooms were odd in that they were like pods inside of the hotel and you needed to take a step up to get into the bathroom; but, again they were clean. The prices were on the high side. They didn't have any double beds like we would have in the U.S. but this seemed to be typical of just about every where we stayed in Germany.

You had to be in just the right spot to get the free internet. Once you got it, it worked fine; you just couldn't move to the other side of the bed.

We didn't pay for the breakfast so I have no idea how that was. They held our luggage for us after we checked out although the lady taking the luggage seemed annoyed we had so much (this was the only time we felt like we got attitude from anyone there). Because we had time to kill before we left, we hung out in the "lounge" area for well over an hour with our luggage taking up a lot of space and no one said a word, even though we had already checked out.

Ok, I was on a business trip, but I remember 1 night and breakfast being about 80 euros which is a bit much for an Ibis hotel. On the other hand, the room was bigger than expected, but the same low number of frills that one gets in every other Ibis hotel. Having said that, its very clean and comfortable and has an excellent central location in Jena. Would rate this one notch higher with a somewhat more reasonable price tag.

This ibis hotel is very well located, few minutes walk from the station and the central market square.
Due to its spatial layout, small front facade, large triangular building behind, there is minimal exposure to city noise. Combined with excellent beds this allows for a quiet sleep with open window. Rooms are not large but very well designed and therefore comfortable. The cabin-type bathroom does all one would expect. We found the breakfast very tasty.
