4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is a truly beautiful building right in the heart of Weimar. Rooms are spacious and well fitted, and the breakfast was extremely good. One particular highlight was the politeness and efficiency of the staff, nothing was too much trouble

Stayed two nights as part of a JS Bach group tour. Really nice room on top floor facing countryside with nice outdoor balcony setting. Far higher standard for the price that you would get anywhere in a major city. Clean, well kept, highly attentive staff, good restaurant, etc. Town centre location close to all tourist sights, restaurants, transport, etc. Top place.

This is a very good hotel in a great location to visit the many attractions Weimar has to offer. The decor is stunning and sumptuous, rooms are spacious , quiet and superbly fitted out with everything one would need. The beds are very comfortable. The staff are thoughtful and courteous always there to help, they all speak excellent English.. The breakfast was very good with an ample choice. I didn't want to leave!

The Russischer is ideally located in the centre of the town; an easy walk to the main sights. The breakfast offered a wide choice including a glass of sekt for those who wanted. All the staff were very professional and friendly. All spoke excellent English.

It is Such a great and comfortable hotel. Nice people, good breakfast. The wonderful rooms with big bath tops and confortable beds are perfect to sleep all night like a real baby. We are happy to be here.

Was visiting my daughter who was on a 2 week German course in Wiemar. I was not a Best Western customer-until this trip. Super elegant 4 star hotel, in close proximity to main attractions of the city and museums, restaurants. Luxurious breakfast, with a wide choice of German specialities- even if this is not cheap at 21euros/head. Room/facilities matching top quality! Strongly recommended for a weekend visiting Wiemar/Erfurt.

Stayed a week with our Reformation 500 tour group. What an excellent choice to get a good night's rest, delicious breakfast buffet, greeted daily by well trained and considerate staff, and experiencing different dining experiences. Walked out the door into the heart of this enchanting city with immediate access to transportation, shoppes, and walking park trails. We a re ready to return again with the family.

I will summarize my review in plusses and minuses: Plus: Location is super, staff friendly and professional, overall atmosphere great, attention to detail, good bed, good air-conditioning​, option to open windows and use shutters for privacy. Very pet friendly, dog got own bed and water bowl. Great breakfast. Minus: Shower in bathtub very inconvenient and too low , interior good but dated, parking very limited. So the plusses far outweigh the minuses.

There is absolutely NOTHING not to love about the Russischer Hof. From the excellent and friendly welcome to the amazingly beautiful rooms, you will definitely feel in the midst of luxury. I booked a single room at the last moment during a very busy time in Weimar. Even though they'd been fully booked the night before my arrival, they made every concession to get me an early check-in without additional fees. For this weary traveler this was very much appreciated and, frankly, much needed! Location? You simply cannot be more central - everything Weimar has to offer is within a short few footsteps away. You're definitely in the heart of this amazing, historic city. The room was on the top floor overlooking the beautiful landscape of Weimar. I actually preferred this to a city view and being able to relax on the private balcony was a true pleasure. A single room is quite spacious with a gracious entry, desk and work space, a cozy nook with a lounge to relax before bed, and a huge, fully outfitted bathroom. The bed was firm without being stiff (my preferred), and the bedding wonderfully soft. I was also pleased with the large amount of amenities that come with the room. Soaps, shoe polish, rivers, slippers, lotions - nothing was lacking and I felt quite at home. The welcome gift of mineral water and light snack was an additional unexpected treat! Although Weimar isn't lacking on restaurants, the breakfast at the hotel is an absolute MUST. The offerings I am sure vary according to season, however during my stay it included boiled eggs with cream and caviar, a huge variety of fruits and breads, cereals, veggies, scrambled eggs, Wurst - the list goes on and on. Suffice it to say no matter the dietary needs one will not go away hungry! Five stars out of five and needless to say I will be returning once again to enjoy the wonderful hospitality!

The Best Western Premier Grand Russischer Hof offers consistent, impeccable, excellent service while maintaining a warm and friendly atmosphere. I appreciate the balance of a warm, homelike presence of the staff with the elegance of a beautiful property managed at the highest level of excellence. Sometimes the efficiency of a property as tightly managed as this one can create a sense of cool distance. On just my second visit the staff greeted me by name. My interaction with the staff has continued to be warm and inviting at all levels. When one travels alone, at a great distance, and away from family, the atmosphere and service at a hotel can make an important difference. I appreciate very much the difference this hotel makes in my travels. I am not sure if the phrase offers the kind of semiotic punch I wish it to convey, but "friendly excellence" captures something essential in what I hope to conceptually signify when I remember my stay at this property.
