Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were here for a wedding, we had the back winter garden room all to ourselves which was fantastic, we could close the door and it was private. The food was really great though I did miss the croissants that we had on Friday morning, they didn't have them again on Saturday. The room was really HOT and the circulating air that is supposed to be available was broken/or not functioning. We asked at the front desk three times and they kept saying that someone would come look/fix and nothing was done nor any follow up. By the third time that we asked, they gave us a fan that was louder than a jet engine. Leaving the windows open was the only option and there were tons of little insects that came in the room because of this. You could also only open up the window a little bit so that didn't help much. We still woke up multiple times in the night because it was so hot and we had to remove the bedding because it was not a summer duvet. The noise from the roadway was also quite loud when you had the window open. I think with the windows closed this would've been ok. The outside pool area was ok but the chairs were really old and stained and the pool area looked nothing like the pictures make it look... it's old and much much smaller. It did it's job of cooling us off but it's misleading. We also had to walk all over the place to find the spa area so we could pick up the pool towels. A suggestion would be to have these at the front desk or somewhere near the pool. In the end we all felt like this hotel was way over priced for what we got. We live in Switzerland and are used to high prices but for what we got, this was way over priced. The shower was ok but the floor was really slippery and lot's of our older family was scared they would slip when they showered. Since there was no air circulating in the room, none of the towels ever dried the whole time we ere there. It's also not really near public transport in case you were on foot like we were (about 10-15 min walk). In summary, the food was good, the waiter/waitresses were nice but the room and the front desk service was not good, they gave an attitude that there's nothing they can do if something isn't working and you pay the price even if things that are expected to work, don't.

My parents favorite hotel for its spa, pool area, tennis courts, all you can eat buffets and close location to Jena, Erfurt and Weimar. Not the fanciest hotel, not the newest, but staff is friendly and takes good care. All in all positive recommendation.

Being in-between jobs we were looking for an inexpensive and yet a good place to have a short holiday... We found this hotel on a local travel website and thought should we book it. The price was unbelievably inexpensive for all-inclusive resort... We took a chance and we were not disappointed... What a wonderful location... You should not compare this resort to any of the well known resorts... That would not be a fair comparison... However Fair Hotel Resort is an unbelievable place for couples or in our case a family of four with one teen aged 17 and the other 14... The food was good and free beer and other drinks gets 2 thumbs up from me. For those of you who think that if its free (or included) it's crap.. You could NOT be further from the truth.. Remember Germany = Great beer 🍻... The wellness center offers a wide range of services and for a reasonable price... Would recommend to anyone that is looking for a good holiday that won't break the pocket...

We stayed only one night in this hotel in January 2013, happy to be able to get a room because the place was full. Have not used any facilities so can not make a comment. We were given a suite for the price of a double room, little creepy and very basic, but clean. We were satisfied that our bed was comfortable. Breakfast buffet, included in the price, was fantastic with huge variety of everything you would like to have, including very good quality of meat, cheese, bread, pastry, fruit, juice and more. The service was good and staff was very helpful and friendly.

The star of this hotel is the attached fitness center that is often used by the residents of the town. The fitness center is modern and well maintained and offers bowling, tennis, badminton, cardio classes, and spa type treatments. The hotel part is very much an after thought. Pros: Very clean rooms, modern bathroom (including fixtures), price includes unlimited use of the public transit (but all Jena hotels include this). They offer an in-room safe and have excellent hot water in the shower/tub/sink. Cons: In-room wifi is 8-euro per hour! Over a 10 minute walk from the last metro stop on the line. This means it will take you 30 minutes to get anywhere useful during peak times, and up to an hour during off peak, depending on what line is running. The windows in the rooms don't have screens on them, so you will get insects if you leave the window open, but the air conditioning doesn't function well (only seems to move air, not cool the air). There are fewer than 10 tv stations, only one of which is in english, and there are absolutely no signs or written material in english. The breakfast buffet is also a bit of a joke by any standard. All of the bread choices are the floppy soft american style, the fruit salad seemed like it came from a can with some added chunks of apple. All of the juices are from concentrate, and the glasses are only around 4oz. Hotel patrons (mostly saggy Germans) strut around the place in bath robes. I recommend this hotel only if everything else is sold out in Jena. Definitely not a four star hotel.

We stayed here for a midweek in Aug. The hotelrooms are ok, but our Airco was broken which i mentioned at our day of arrival. When we left, is was still not fixed, which ment having trouble sleeping with temps. of around 35C that week. The shower has not enough pressure, which is another annoying thing, aswell is paying to parc your car. On the other hand, the staff is helpfull and friendly, the outdoor-pools view is amazing, and the food is good. The eveningbuffet has plenty of choise, and drinking(wine, beer also) is included till 10p.m. On each floor is a vending machine to buy some cans of soda, which you can buy for the rediculous price of 2,75€ p/can.( about 4$). The hotel provides you with free cards to the S-bahn which, after a 15 min. walk, takes you downtown Jena. Jena is a real nice town to stroll an afternoon. Also we made some beautifull hikes in the Jena surroundings. At our arrival day the internet-pc(not free) was broken, and was still broken when we left. Summary; A nice hotel, when eveything works, but when something is out of order, fixing it is not a priority. You should not pay more then 350 € for a midweek. In spite of a couple of issues(maybe we had some badluck), i would recommend comming here, but make sure you don't pay to much.
