I spent a week in Leipzig on business and appreciated the outstanding service at this lovely situated hotel with the Thomaskirche right outside the window of my quiet room. The services makes the difference when things don't quite meet my expectations. For example the sound system in the room was not that what I was expecting. On mentioning this to...

This hotel is located in the historical centre of the city, right opposite the famous St Thomas' Church where Bach worked, and where his tomb was relocated and is found currently. All places in his area have the name of Bach or some kind of reference to Bach. Architecturally, my impression was that the hotel unites 2 buildings, rather old...

What a surprise: just opposite the Thomaskirche, hidden behind an old house facade is this great little hotel. The quality is high, the comfort of the rooms great (comfy beds, AC, small kitchenette etc), the staff is nice and helpful. Extremely vast and fine breakfast (including eggs to your order). And you couldn't be more central in the town! Highly...

This hotel was perfectly located, beautifully appointed, very friendly and helpful staff. Our room outlook over St Thomaskirche was truly lovely & very much appreciated. No detail was overlooked - toiletries, bath, little bag of sweets on the pillow, facewashers. Would happily stay here again.

The apartment hotel was the perfect size. I was traveling alone, but I think the Kantate apartment would be great for a couple. And I was in 507. Right across from the Thomaskirche and Bach statue! And with the windows open, I would frequently hear the sounds of the wonderful musicians playing in the courtyard below. The bathroom with sunken...

Small hotel centrally located on the Thomaskirche Platz. The rooms are small but typical for old style Saxony hotels. Take plenty of hangers as it lacks drawer space. Nice restaurant WARNING-If you are charging your bill to your credit card, request the charge in Euros. Most vendors charge in Euros and your credit card company will to convert to US...

Checked in after a delayed flight and was given the most friendly welcome. The room is spotlessly lean and comfortable and getting a non feather pillow was no problem. Aircon works well and is very quiet and my room also had a mini kitchen if I'd wanted to cook my own - which I didn't and used he in house...

The room was huge with a glass wall deviding the bathroom shower box from the sleeping room. Very central located, but no parking lots and we paid 15€ for 17 hours parking nearby suggested by the hotel. Unluckily the wifi was a disaster and when we enter the room the AC was fully going and just 18ºC! (reported to the...

A nice, clean, very centrally located hotel. We had a quiet, bright, rear facing corner room on 5th floor. Bathroom was reasonably spacious and very clean. Check-in / check-out swift and effortless. Didn't take breakfast here, there are plenty of other well priced alternatives in the area. Parking in city hall underground public car park, 3min away on foot, was...

Very nice, if somewhat compact, apartment style hotel next to Thomaskirche in Leipzig. We were a bit afraid the bells from the church would keep us up as we had the church view but we slept soundly and well. The bed was very comfortable and the room was smartly decorated. Reception staff were helpful and friendly, good English directions. Easy...
