Nestled in the quaint locality of Wanfried and within a reasonable distance from key attractions, Zum Schwan Wanfried is much more than a 3-star hotel, offering not only concierge services, non-smoking rooms, a restaurant, and free WiFi but also a bar and a range of water sports facilities. Guests can indulge in various activities in and around the town such as hiking, canoeing, and cycling. The prominent Automobile Welt Eisenach and the historic Wartburg Castle are just 34 km and 39 km away from the hotel respectively, providing opportunities for enriching day trips. The accommodation is also well-positioned relative to transport links, with Train Station Eisenach 38 km away and an available paid airport shuttle service to Kassel-Calden airport, which is 79 km away.
The hotel garners appreciation for its blending of the historic with the contemporary, residing in an old half-timbered house, yet offering rooms that are not only clean but also renovated and modern. Guests frequently expressed their delight over the tasteful decor, superior cleanliness, and the comfortable, well-equipped rooms. While the breakfast generally received positive reviews for its quality and variety, some guests opined that the pricing was somewhat steep for the offer. The absence of the hotel’s own parking space was noted, though the availability of plenty of parking spaces nearby assuaged potential concerns. Noteworthy is the consistent praise for the amicable and supportive staff, which notably enhanced the stay for many guests.
