Excellent location right in the heart of Liepzig so we were able in just one overnight 24 hour stay to visit the major sights on foot including attending a concert in a smaller room at the Gewandhaus booked by the hotel (only 12 Euros per ticket). Our car was valet-parked for not much more than the overnight car park rate and was waiting for us outside the main entrance 24 hours later - with a complimentary bottle of water for the journey.
Finding it was easy using the satnav but to actually get to it we had to ask a very helpful receptionist at the Marriott Hotel nearby where our satnav gave up - lots of temporary roadworks blocked off the road.
The room was superb with heavy doors and thick walls so we were not even aware of any other guests. Bathroom the best ever - 3 separate rooms so the shower and toilet were completely partitioned off from the main bath and basin section. The view from our top floor looking out over the small square at the back of the Rathaus was splendid and we were able to go out onto the mini balcony to view the scene next to stone carvings of cupids on horses.
As breakfast was quite expensive we ate in the cafe in the back of the complex overlooking the Rathaus which was very popular for brunch with the locals.
This hotel is luxury at a price which can only sky-rocket in the future so again I highly recommend that you go now if you can.
