Pros: This is a lovely, family run guest accommodation in a very convenient and picturesque location. The hotel is conveniently close to a freeway exit but hidden away at the end of a quiet road near a beautiful forest. The parking was easy and despite no English from the German hosts we were given a warm and comprehensive introduction to our accommodation. The room had a very functional kitchenette with much more equipment than many other places we have recently stayed in. There was a big TV, the wifi was excellent and the beds were comfortable. Overall a very good place for a few nights to explore the area.

They have a restaurant which is also for breakfast in the old building having a historical-like interior. They have free parking but it can not be booked. I was lucky enough to find a free place.

Pros: Everything OK, nog problem. It's several old buildings put together, which makes it interesting, but it makes it sometimes difficult to find your way.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Small and cozy almost in the center.

Hopefully my next trip to Jena comes soon!
Cons: The street down was busy quite early and woke me up. Not a biggie though. The shades were a bit unconventional to get UP but the scenes in the student flats across the street made it up....
Pension Artem Orbis - Jena - Bedroom

8.9 Excellent (131 reviews)

10.0 Excellent

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Artem Orbis is a gorgeous heritage building situated on a hill above Jena. The beds are comfortable, and the rooms clean and spacious. The boarding house offers free tea, coffee and seasonal fruit. It is located next to a pharmacy and just down the street from a supermarket. It is about a ten minute walk from the tram that goes into central Jena.
Cons: The wifi signal was very weak.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Simple late night check in, free fruits for breakfast
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The location is perfect, a quite, small old town part of Jena. Few rooms but very well decorated and clean. Highly recommended.
7.0 Good
Pros: The hotel is an old town hall in Jena's suburb Lobeda, and the historic building is really impressive, with old beams and a clock tower which chimes the time hourly. The furniture is also in old style, so the place is quite atmospheric. Teas provided in the kitchen are various and nice. Fridge, kettle, plates, cups, etc. provided. Spacious room with nice view over the town square and Saale valley. Separate toilet and bathroom are very convenient in morning hurry.
Cons: In the four days we stayed in the hotel, we haven't had a chance to see any personell at all. We got the key from the intercom (!) and that was it. The room wasn't cleaned in the whole time, and I'm not even speaking about towels and bedlinen, I mean that rubbish bin stayed untouched by anyone but us. The hotel is located away from the centre, and it turned out to be quite fine once we found that there's a direct tram route (2 EUR/person/ride). But we had to find that out by ourselves, as reception is virtually invisible. The first time we actually walked on foot from the bus station some 7 km away from the hotel. Wifi only worked in the hotel hall, while in the room you'd have to stand with your device as close to the door (and the hall therefore) as possible to catch some signal.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Extremely helpful stuff. Very tasty breakfast,I'm always not happy about it,but here it's amazing.
Cons: No slippers,robe. If you mention it's as SPA,these stuff should be in each room. Very expensive parking.Could be cleaner.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: The hotel itself is very beautiful and the rooms are also big with comfortable beds. The panorama elevator is a nice addition- The breakfast was very good with very friendly staff all around.
Cons: Nothing to complain about
7.0 Good
Pros: All in all everything is ok.
Cons: Charging 3 € for sauna seems somehow strange. Wouldn't change a lot for the hotel to not ask for this fee but would make customers feel better. Coffee is ok but in the whole hotel there is no real good coffee machine. Still the "typical" standard MWF coffee. Just two minor points but would make a difference.
10.0 Excellent

9.5 Excellent

9.5 Excellent
Pros: The staff is friendly and always helpful. They spoke good English and helped me with my beginner's German. The location is superb, close to excellent shops and within easy walking distance to the main tourist sites and restaurants, and right beside the university. My local colleagues told me it is the best (though most expensive) hotel in Jena. I loved the balcony in my room. I stayed on business for two weeks, and it was worth paying a little extra for the quiet and comfort, which enabled me to work efficiently at the large desk in my room when I needed to do so. I would come back to this hotel for sure.
Cons: The beds for solo travellers are smaller and a bit less comfortable than hotel beds in North America, but they are good compared to other hotel beds I've experienced in Europe.

7.5 Good

Cons: 1, It is not so quite inside of the room, as we could hear people in the corridor, the footsteps above us. 2, I could not find anyone at the counter after 9:30 p.m. 3, Besides, I made a reservation in the restaurant at Scala’s official website, and I also got a response email. But when I arrived, the staff told me they didn’t get any information, and there was no table for me. And more importantly, they were not polite during our discussion.

Hostel Jena - Jena - Building

8.6 Excellent (635 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Offering a quiet location in Jena city centre, this hostel is located just 950 metres from the historic Botanical Gardens.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast is quite simple. I prefer to have more dishes to start a long day.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice location, clean, friendly staff
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was amazing. The hostel is located in a beautiful area, just a 10 minute walk to the center of town, planetarium, etc. The owner is there during his posted hours every day and he takes great pride in making sure you enjoy your stay. I speak no German and he spoke plenty of English, and went out of his way for me anytime I needed assistance, suggestions, etc. The bathrooms are the cleanest I have ever seen in a hostel. They have a cleaning crew come every day to do a thorough cleaning of the entire place. Breakfast was a steal at $6 euro and had a fresh buffet of meats, cheeses, vegetables, yogurts, breads, coffee, orange juice, etc. The best part? The rooms. The hostel is own the 3rd floor and have huge windows with gorgeous views. When I walked into mine, it took my breath away. Sweeping views of the rooftops, beautiful skyline with old historic buildings and their tall tower all against a backdrop of unbelievably gorgeous green hills and mountains. If you make a reservation, call and request room 12. It is the corner room and has the best view in the place. If you want your own private room, it's only $10 euro more ($35/night). The only 2 drawbacks are that the checkin hours are limited so you have to call 24 hours in advance if you are arriving after 9. Basically, there is not round the clock staff. 2nd, there really is no common area to socialize other than the little entry way lobby. It would have been nice to be able to talk and chat in the darling dining room. The kitchen is small with no freezer but not a necessity. There is a fridge and everything you need for a small little hostel like this one. It was clean, quiet, well run. I've stayed in my share of hostels and I would highly recommend Alpha One Hostel in Jena.
Cons: See above. Common meeting area, better check in hours.
6.3 Good
Cons: Our room was super cold I had to sleep with wool jumpers. The heater wasn't heating well in our room which I found not responsible.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Everything was very clean, including the bathrooms. I especially liked that there were three bathrooms total (all with showers and windows) on each floor so that there wasn't any crowding in the mornings or evenings. My roommate was very friendly; the quality of the people staying here is high. It's about a 10 minute walk to the nearest supermarket which isn't too bad. Jena West (train station) is 15-20 minutes walking distance (and it's a nice, quiet walk) - or you can walk (5-10 minutes) to nearest tram stop (Ernst-Abbe-Platz) and ride the tram to Jena Paradies (the other main station) in two minutes.
Cons: The only thing that bothered me: in my room (1st floor, room 2) there was a strange, unidentifiable smell. Luckily the room also had many tall windows so I could air out the room, but then the smell would come back once they were closed again. It didn't bother me too much in the end, but I just wanted to point it out. The staff were also nice but came across a little cold at times.
7.0 Good
Pros: Fine breakfast nothing more/less, bread, tomatoes, cheese and saussage. Also cofee, juice, and cereals.
Cons: I stayed in a doorm, and was told they only cleaning when someone left the room. As i stayed with two long-term stay guests, it got pretty dirty three girls living together.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Location is perfect. Bus stop and train station is just around the corner. Place is quiet.
Cons: Poor wi-fi signal. When there's more guests staying in the hotel it's almost impossible to connect. My windows were facing the street and the noise from traffic was quite heavy most of the time.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: very kind staff, excellent breakfast, room all O.K. (much space, clean, all working) location is excellent, 5 min walk to Goethe-Gallerie, 10 min walk to historical centre
Cons: Internet does not reach the room (!), but in the breakfast room it works excellent. Beds (mattress) are a little too smooth, we did not like the traditional type of pillows.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: This is a very charming little place that has a classic feel to it. Not a big hotel, it's a small bed-and-breakfast with its own personality. The location is very good, walking distance from the Jena city center and also to Jena West rail station. One thing which I thought was amusing was that instead of one unified bathroom, the toilet and the shower are in two separate rooms, which is usual in Russia and probably reflects the East German history of this place.
Cons: The reception is only staffed until 18:00 (6:00 PM) and you need to receive an e-mail with the code to unlock your key from the key lockers if you're arriving after that. The view out the window is on a street that should be nice, but the building across the street is covered in political graffiti (sadly, this seems to be a problem in Jena in general).

7.5 Good
Pros: It was a perfect place to have a good night sleep during our journey to Belgium. 24/7 reception. Nice room. AC. Near Highway.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Staff at the check-in was friendly. Room was quiet. Hotel was close to the place where we were invited.
Cons: We booked 3 rooms for the same rate. 2 rooms were similar and the other one was way better and more convenient than ours. In my opinion you can’t charge the same money for different rooms! Very unprofessional in my eyes. Rooms are very old furnished. Bed was uncomfortable and the pillows were very high and firm so that all of us 6 got neckpain the next day. Lots of dust on top of the wardrobe and bc I’m tall I saw it right away! The heating system was old fashioned as well and when in use it was a bit too loud to use it all night. The lady in the breakfast restaurant was very unfriendly and grumpy. Not professional in front of guests!
7.0 Good

5.5 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was good, personnel very nice and helpful, hotel located in nice area.
Cons: The hotel needs refreshment as I’m sure the quality was incredible 20 years ago. Also using some air freshener would make more pleasant feeling when entering the room. I am also not used in 4 stars hotels to actually have 1/2 of bathroom in the room.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable hotel in the southern suburb of Jena with easy access to the autobahn. Friendly staff with the options of formal or casual dining. Clientele mostly appear to be middle-management business people. Breakfast was a good spread.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The room was bigger than I expected and well furnished. The location was excellent, only 2 minutes away from the centre of Jena. The bed was comfortable and was remade everyday. It was helpful to be able to pick up the key from a safe box and give myself access to my room.
Cons: Additional sachets of shower gel, shampoo and coffee on a daily basis is my only comment.
5.5 Okay
Cons: The beds didnt have any bed sheets. It was said that the matress cover itself if the bedsheet. And they have a very dark and dingy entrance from some back door with very poorly lit stair case (refer the images)
6.8 Good
Pros: Strategic location. Very close to the center and in walking distance to the train station, and the hotel was clean.
Cons: I didn't like it that it almost seemed impossible for me to check-in as I had arrived after 18:00 pm when the person responsible had already closed for the day. There is a key box with a code that one who has checked in late can use to get into the hotel. I didn't have this code and when I called the emergency number on the key-box I was given one by a lady but I could not go about it. In the end, the lady had to come herself to help. When she came she was very angry, got out the key and dumped in my hand accompanied by some harsh words and she left. But how could it be my fault yet I had informed earlier that I'll be having a late check-in and I was not given the code let alone proper instructions on how to go about the code box?????
