We stayed in this hotel two times this year and really enjoyed both of them! High quality of service, very good and different breakfast, clean rooms and comfortable beds. In December at the evenings it was piano play in the lobby.

I chose this hotel many times during last year when I come for business trips. The atmosphere is good, the team is excelent and the rooms are very clean and pleasant. Breakfast is made of very high quality ingerdients.

I had a very good stay at the Esplanade Hotel, Jena. Highly recommended for business visitors to Jena! They have a decent breakfast menu and a well-stocked bar. The rooms and other facilities are clean.

I was there for 6 nights and had many facilities to stay in comfort. My day began with exercise in a good equipped gym salon, then continued with various and delicious breakfast. Very nice and kind staffs gave good services. Guethe gallery, a big shopping mall in Jena is just located near the hotel. I recommend this beautiful hotel to all travellers to Jena

good business hotel in Jena, Central and Comfortable place to have business meetings staff were good but could be little more courteous at the reception compared with others overall had a good stay. very nice location for the hotel just beside the huge shopping area around

I stayed for 2 nights when visiting Jena for business. The room was very big and spotless, great bed and very good bathroom. My only comment would be that I would like to have had tea/coffee facilities in the room. The room was also very quiet even though it is in the centre of town.

solid and good hotel. comfortable but the rooms overlook the bar so lower floor rooms do get the noise. small but well stocked gym. Excellent and hearty breakfast. Would have liked double beds as opposed to singles and bathroom could have been better stocked.

I've stayed at the Steigenberger Esplanade many times. It's always a pleasure. Clean, friendly, competent throughout all aspects. The ONLY downside is the drive into Jena. If you need to be in the surrounding area, it's a bit far from the Autobahn for my taste. If you need to be in Jena, then it's prefectly located.

Central location, clean, friendly personal, good breakfast. Only downside is the very expensive parking and the slow WiFi. I stay there on a regular basis for years and will certainly return. Never used the SPA.

Over all a very comfortable stay, how ever I do have one criticism, we arrived earlier than the two o'clock check in, were told we should come back later, no problem, but were then offered access to our room for a charge of 40 Euros, I can understand not getting in the room before two, but as the room was obviously ready, hence the offer to go in at a charge of 40 Euros, that I find is day light robbery. And dam cheeky Glen McMurdo
