“Rather nice, beware of the road and building works outside.”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

The hotel itself is quite nice: is clean, the reception staff are nice and accommodating, I had wifi in my room, unlike other people, the rooms are spacious, comfy beds, it had a kitchen, decent shower, great location.
Not so good were the very noisy roadworks outside, which apparently will go on until sept/oct 2012. Make sure you ask for a courtyard facing room, very quiet. The staff changed my room as soon as I asked, it was smaller than the other one, but at least quiet.
No air conditioning, why oh why is this so difficult to find in Germany, and they do provide a kitchenette, with plates, cutlery, kettle and microwave, but not even a small pot or pan. When asked, I was told the management doesn't provide this - so what's the point of having a kitchen in the first place? So if you want to save some money by cooking a meal a day in the room, bring your own pot :D
The electric lighting both in the room and in the bathroom is too weak - buy more powerful bulbs plz.
No idea how the breakfast was, I was never up in time to eat it, and didn't even see what the bar/breakfast room looked like.

Room Tip: Until the building works go on (sept/oct 2012 apparently), ask for a courtyard facing room. Otherwis...

The advantage of this hotel is that it is in easy walking distance to the Hauptbahnhof and the city centre with its many beautiful buildings and sites. It is also clean and reasonably priced, but should not be described as a 4Star Hotel. Our twin room was large enough but did not have an iota of ambience or character. The furniture was reminiscent of office furniture. The twin beds were narrow with thin mattresses and only 1 lumpy pillow each. The bathroom was exceedingly small, even by German standards. In a supposedly 4Star Hotel we did not expect the toiletries such as shampoo and body wash, to be in containers attached to the walls. We found the room depressing and checked out after the first night of a planned (and booked) 3 night stay as there was no hot water in the morning! The boiler needed to be fixed, and of course this can happen. But as I had pre-booked through a wellknown travel site we had to pay the full amount, with no concessions made for the collapse of the hot weater system! So double check with whom you make your booking and their cancellation conditions so that there won't be any nasty surprises! We "escaped" to the Marriott Hotel next door for the remainder of our stay, and loved it!!!
Very comfy beds, a generous number of pillows, soft carpet, and all the other little luxuries you expect in a 4Star Hotel! It is well worth the slightly higher price! Interestingly, the receptionist told us that they were used to people changing over from the Royal. So, on your next visit to the beautiful city of Leipzig, stay at the Marriott!

Stayed in April '12 & had 2 different rooms, both were massive and had a type of open pantry incl. fridge but no tray with coffee/tea/sugar. All was very clean, bathrooms (no window) all modern & also clean. Lighting could be improved a lot but was ok at the bedside. Furniture is a little bit on the dated side though but beds were comfy. Very pleasant & helpful staff.
Lovely, varied breakfast: Cakes, fresh fruit, pancakes, joghurts, salmon, herring, cheese, cold meats, 5-6 different types of bread/bread rolls, different juices, teas & coffee aplenty.
If you close the window, a lot of the building noise is blocked out but that is a major minus if
you're used to opening windows.
Not the Hotel's fault though that a major tunnel is being built.
Would stay again & can warmly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Very good views if opting for street room - cannot comment on the inside rooms

Nice hotel located right across the street from the railroad station. Quiet rooms, with very comfortable beds. The staff was very nice and helpful. All in all, a great hotel experience.

I stayed at the hotel over Easter weekend, 2012. The hotel is centrally located, it's about a 5 minutes walk to the train station, the Rathaus and to St. Nikolas Church and about 10 minutes to St. Thomas Church. I found the young women at the reception desk to be nice (unlike some reviews I've read). I was traveling by myself and this is the first time I've ONLY had a twin bed. My room had a sloping roof. It was like a studio apartment with a small kitchen area and a couch. If there had not been someone walking by when I was trying to open the door, I'm not sure I would have been able to get it open. They use a "fob" that electronically allows it to open, but then it has a small knob to open. I think that anyone with problems with hand grasping would have problems trying to open the door (I will attach a picture of the door, the top part is just to pull it open and does not move). The room I was in has not been painted in years (it looks like it has been at least 10 years since the rooms have been refurbished). I was warned in another review that they do not provide shampoo or conditioner. They have a soap dispenser in the bathroom and shower( both were labeled "Tricky Ricky" which was appropriate as I tried to figure out how to get soap from them... and I felt like the one in the shower was diluted). The hotel advertises free wifi. The Wi-fi works if you are on one of the first two floors. I was on the 5th, so had to go down to the lobby to use the wi-fi. On a positive note (besides the location within sight of the train station and centrally located) they do have a great breakfast buffet with more food than a lot of hotels I've been in. Overall, I'm not sure it was worth the 200 euros I paid for a single bed, even with the buffet. The hotel sits on a corner and there is construction on both sides which is a pain. Fortunately because I was there over Easter weekend, there wasn't any work going on at the construction sights.

Room Tip: One that doesn't face either street. Don't tell them you are traveling alone and maybe you...

I stayed at this hotel with my parents (in their 60's) for a trip around Germany. This hotel was so much better than expected!! The rooms were huge, very comfortable and well furnished. The hotel is located on the corner of the main shopping area, it's about a 10 minute casual stroll to the Thomaskirche and a short walk to the Natural History museum. The main train station is accross the main road. Although it is very central the rooms are very quiet. The breakfast was quite good too. The reception staff were fantastic, great english , courteous, helpful and very knowledgeable.
The price was what knocked me over, I thought the rooms would be quite small, given that they were not expensive.
I was so impressed with the value, condition and service at this hotel I would wholeheartedly recommend it and will stay there again.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the road have a better view, there is a construction site along one side. Couldn...

Nice Hotel, very central. The room we had was nice, good place to stop off,. There is a small kitchen but we didnt use it.
I was impressed with the breakfast, smoked salmon etc.. very nice. Come before nine though or some of the nicer things could be gone.
I dont understand some of the bad reviews for this place. Some people just impossible to please I guess!!
