“Really nice and in brilliant location”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Super well trained and freindly, helpful personnel - outstanding service. All is nice and professional and calm. Great rooms, good value for money, amazing bathroom. Only the wellness area is missing some "soul" and: a pool, which this hotel doesnt have. Try the superior room level, you will likely love it.

Room Tip: Book superior category, not much more expensive, gets you outstanding room and bathroom.

This big hotel in the very center of Leipzig is a stylish retreat with a professional staff in line with Steigenbergers reputation. The interior design is absolutely fabulous, from the reception and the lounge/bar in the atrium and from the wellness area to the individual rooms. Beautiful fabrics and colors, very stylish. Very good bed. As we considered the pillows far too weak (very German), the pillow-menu was appreciated. Nice bathroom with walk in shower. No noise from other rooms. Very convenient coffee/tea making in room facilities. Beautiful wellness area with sauna, hammam, showers and rest area. We didn't try the fitness area during our stay. Neither the (expensive and probably extensive) breakfast. Parking service is offered, but costly compared to the public parking garage on less then 5 minutes walk. Behind the hotel is the GDR museum, which is strangly enough not indicated on the maps provided by the hotel: a must see! Road signs to the hotel were missing after the first big one. Resuming: highly recommended.

Room Tip: Book well in advance with no cancelling possibilities and you'll get a good rate. Rooms at top...

Everything is of the highest quality, great service and staff. We wished we'd stayed longer and are planning on coming back again when we can. What they've done in refurbishing the old hotel is nothing short of amazing, fitting modern comfort into the timeless original style.

Top notch!

The service is great, wonderful airy, clean and nicely decorated rooms. Breakfast had the little extra you expect, and the bar was very good. No problem getting a complimentary late check out (2 pm).

The location is also very good, in the middle of the city centre with very little traffic.

Just one little snag: lousy wifi in the rooms.

We - a family of 5 - had a quick stay over in two rooms. One room with extra bed and all was perfectly organised. Already at arrival with he valet parking it was clear that all staff took the service and friendliness seriously - During our short stay we really felt that all staff was doing their utmost to make our stay as comfortable as possible - Like giving out teddy bears at arrival to our youngest children as an example
Internet was working perfect. The service at the bar was spotless and the breakfast was very good
If you need a luxury and comfortable stay in Leipzig you need to stay at Steigenberger !

This very nice hotel is located in the centre of town. It is a true Grand Hotel with nicely furnished modern rooms. The old facade houses a modern interior and is a true jewell. The downside is however that the promoted free internet is useless. They cap it to 256 kps and block even VPN traffic. I don't have any understanding how such a property does not just provide a basic need as Internet is. This is really poor service and the only item that raises to a complaint.

Room Tip: ask for city view.

We arrived early in the day and were able to access our room immediately which was a nice touch. The hotel is well appointed and our room had everything we required. Didn't use the restaurant as there are plenty of eating places within walking distance. The concierge was very helpful with recommendations for dinner. The gym and sauna complex in the basement have all the necessary equipment, and are spotlessly clean!
We were taking a train later in the day so left our luggage at the hotel which was not a problem and reception were happy to provide directions for museums and other attractions.
