Arriving 1 hour before the official check-in time, we had to leave our cases and return after 3pm. Check-in was efficient but a little impersonal, and this impression persisted throughout our stay. When at 9.30am we wanted to reserve a table in the most attractive-looking in-house restaurant, for example, it was already full, and whilst staff offered alternative nearby suggestions they didn't seem overly concerned about their own residents.
Our room had everything required, but felt corporate; we would have liked a comfy chair each in order to make use of the limited kitchenette facilities, but appreciated the kettle and mugs. One mattress was soft with a distinct 'hollow' down the middle.
That said, the location is perfect for Bach lovers, and the 2 nearby mid-range restaurants recommended by Reception were both enjoyable.It's easy to walk everywhere from the hotel, and we didn't use public transport at all during our stay.
My husband and I stayed here during Christmas - and had a lovely time. The hotel was very slick, comfortable, and roomy. We especially enjoyed the spacious lounge areas on the main floor and huge breakfast spread. The hotel staff were also very helpful, warm, and courteous. Would absolutely stay here again!
Clean, and well kept hotel, 10 minute walk to Conference centre site, if you are there for such. Basic breakfast but has a reasonable variety of food to choose from. Also 10 minute walk to Tram / Buses so if you are visiting Lepizig city then it is a bit out of the way but it is reachable by good transport linked to the conference centre.

Very easy to find as just over the road from the railway station. Check in was quick and easy. Room was very nice and we liked the little windows between the bath\shower and the main room.
Handy for the cross town trains and Leipzig is a lovely city and we wished we had stayed longer.
Staff pleasant and helpful with knowledge of English. Rooms very comfortable, spotlessly clean, bright, wide corridors. 5 mins walk to old town and shopping area, 5 mins walk to zoo and even less to main train station. For quietness, ask for room internally looking into central courtyard area. Ideally located. Thoroughly recommend!

Welcoming and efficient staff, good sized room, reasonable breakfast (if a little pricey).
Broken air conditioning - apparently all rooms had it at some time, as they each have a temperature control and air duct, but this is not operational and has not been for some time, we understand. This is particularly problematic because the hotel is close to a very busy and noisy main road, and the weather for our visit was hot.
The TV was out of action for the entire week of our stay (again, apparently this was a hotel - wide issue).
Other than that, a pleasant hotel, but probably more 3 star than 4 star.
Positioned between two historic trade routes near three rivers in the northwestern part of Saxony, the city of Leipzig is a hub for trade and musical culture. The Leipzig Fair, the oldest trade fair in the world, finds its name and location here, and lovers of music and history can visit St. Thomas Church, where Johann Sebastian Bach was music director of The St. Thomas Boys' Choir in the 1700s.
