Review of the Leonardo Hotel in Weimar, Germany
A Cute Overview of Weimar
Though the location is lovely, you should keep in mind that it isn’t in the center of town. If you want to be in the middle of the action and have all the best restaurants, museums, and shops at your fingertips, this is not the place to be.
The furniture is generic, mid-level hotel furniture. Nothing to write home about. That’s fine- we didn’t spend much time in the room- there is so much else to see! What is important is that the room be clean and comfortable to sleep in- and it was. So all was well!
The only real discomfort the room threw my way involved the loss of hot water on the first night I stayed at the hotel. At the end of a long day, a cold shower isn’t exactly the best way to wind down, so I was pretty miffed. That said, I don’t think the hotel runs out of water every night. Right before I had retired to the room for the night, an entire busload of Japanese visitors had checked into the hotel, and they probably did the same thing I did- hence the scarcity of heat. On the second night of our stay, I encountered no problem with water temperature.
I wouldn’t say that the staff was super friendly, but we felt quite well-cared for and have absolutely no reason to be unhappy with the hotel’s service.
Because of the conference, breakfast was pretty crowded, but I imagine that on most days, it is quite the enjoyable affair! The restaurant space is nice, spacious, and full of light, and there is a balcony area where guests can eat out in the sun.
Would I Return?
Overall, the Leonardo Hotel is a great place for families to visit. I imagine that kids would love playing in the pool, and apparently one can get childcare on site, which is great when parents are ready for a break! The hotel’s site also says that pets are allowed, and my father and I did notice some furry guests- that’s family friendly indeed!
