  • Spectacular views. The tower is definitely an interesting construction but I wouldn't call it beautiful :)
  • Award winning architecture. Great 360° view from the hill top. Hotel rooms way cool!!! Give it a try 👍
  • One day we made a trip to Jested. This walk in the nature was really cool. The thing what we didnt enjoy is the restaurant on the top. Its a bit dissapointing. Not much to choose from.
  • An nice place with an extraordinary building on the top of the mountain.
  • The hotel is a great piece of architecture, you can tell it was built in the 70s. The atmosphere is right there and I enjoyed every second of it. But Ješted isn’t only the hotel, it’s a great view spot. You can easily see the whole city. The panorama is just gorgous no matter where you stand. And the line ride is quite fun! Remember if you have an Euro-Nysa ticket you can get a discounted ticket for the line ride :)
