“Good 3* hotel for a long stay”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 via mobile

The staff are great. The rooms are a great size, but are 3* with the bonus of a fridge, coffee maker, sink and 2 hot plates.

The pillows are terrible though, even if you have 2, but the beds are comfy - but candy floss pillows spoil it!

The WiFi should really be free for the price of the room. There were no international channels available on the TV, but was glad of the radio provided.

The tram journey was about 25 mins to the main train station, fine for our visit. If you don't have much time and don't need a kitchenette consider this.

The supermarket (Kaufland at the time) is only a couple of minutes away, had everything we needed.

Basically, top end of price bracket when we stayed hence the 3s as it is a 3* hotel.

It proved impossible to find the right standard hotel in central Leipzig in my budget of 50 euros, so i went south of town and booked the Ratsholz.
The trip on the tram from the main rail station is about 25 minutes, and if that is ok by you, you will be very happy with this hotel.
The reception was amongst the most genuinely friendly I have come across, and took pleasure in coming up with some great information. This included some highlights of this trip - taking the local bus right by hotel entrance 4 stops / c 10 minutes down to Nordstrand, and swimming with the locals at the lake Cospudener See after a sticky sweaty day around the sights downtown.
The rooms are on lengthy corridors, and offer really very spacious accommodation for todays standards, including a cupboard by the entrance opening up to reveal a kitchenette and fridge.
Everything looked fairly new, worked well and was completely spick and span.
The hotel restaurant ( separate management ) had a nice terrace area , where I enjoyed watching Germany lose their Euro soccer semifinal against Italy with some excellent beer, grilled susage/steaks from the charcoal grill.
Contrary to some reviews I read, I found service in the Restaurant and breakfast room to be very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet does not offer the biggest selection, but has more than enough variety of tasty local fare, and at the ( revised ?) price of 6 euros is a pretty good deal.
If you understand making the best of the location, you will find this hotel a very friendly and comfortable base at a reasonable price.

The rooms are very large and comfortable. The hotel attendants are very nice. Breakfast was not included, but we had it in the first morning and it was very tasty! There's a good supermarket just beside the hotel. The hotel is a little bit far from downtown, but there are bus and tram. We were with a rent car and we parked in front of the hotel, which is a very safe neighbourhood. I would like to stay in this hotel again.

We had a suite on the top floor which had everything we needed. It would be difficult to find anything which was not available to us. The Hotel resturant was very good with meal at prices well below what we expected for Germany.The staff were very helpful, enabling us to find the Tram route into the Old Town without and problems.
They was also parking available on site which we used.
Would return to the area as we felt there was still more to be seem

This hotel is surprisingly good - tucked away in the southern suburbs of Leipzig but super easy to get to, thanks to the superb trams which run nearby.

For 38 punds I got what was really a large apartment, with a little kitchen in the hall, large bedroom, large living room and nice shower in the bathroom. My room also had a balcony.

There is a restaurant in the hotel where you can have breakfast for ten euros. I didnt as there is a marvellous supermarkez next door where I bought all I needed for breakfast in the room.

Leipzig is a grat citz - laid back and hassle-free. This hotel is comfortable, very clean and the bedroom I had was wonderfully capacious.

Thew only fault I could find is that it cold do with some better TV channels as being restricted to CNN and BBC world is a bit of a bore after a while.

Overall, a real gem.

Super, clean hotel with very friendly staff and spacious accommodation. The public transport system in Leipzig is second-to-none, so the 20-minute tram ride into the city centre was hassle-free. We travelled with our 19 month-old son and found this hotel to meet our needs perfectly... the child-friendly features in the flat even included electrical socket protectors and a very convenient entrance hall in our flat for the pram. The separate living room and bedroom meant that didn't have to quietly creep around a cramped hotel room once our son was asleep. The mini-kitchen is a bit basic, but the staff were more than happy to offer a microwave, which was great with a supermarket being so nearby. The location of the hotel is quiet (ask for a room at the back!), but the views are not too great. I usually have real trouble trying to find a hotel in the UK that ticks all our boxes, but this one even exceeded our expectations!

Business hotel in outlying suburbs of Leipzig. Residential area; base of hotel includes grocery and minor shops. Rooms are huge - many windows and a kitchenette. We shopped downstairs and made meals in our room. Staff friendly; most speak english. Bus route stops outside the front door; downtown is about 15 minutes away. Free street parking. Beware of summer - even with the windows open we were uncomfortable without AC. Then again Europe had record breaking heat that week. Can be noisy - teens tend to congregate at night because of the stores and delivery/garbage trucks arrive very early in the morning. Very clean. Free local calling. Great location without the hassles of being downtown.
