Concierge.com's insider take:
Built as a private villa in 1826, this hotel is a good, inexpensive option near the Goethe National Museum and many other major tourist attractions. The original neoclassical building remains, but renovations in the 1990s established the modern annex across the street. Rooms are spacious, airy and furnished in a neo-Biedermeier style; shower rooms (no baths), however, are drab and stocked with only liquid soap. The establishment is run by the Lutheran Church Association, but don't worry, church attendance is not enforced.
