“5 Star Service at 3 Star hotel”
Reviewed 26 November 2010

Everything about this place was great:

* Arrived too early for check-in but they made gave us the first one cleaned at 11:00am
* Offered tea or coffee as sat in lobby trying to figure out our next step (before got the room).
* Streetcar goes past but the windows were so sound proof never heard them (not sure how summer would be if wanted to sleep with the window open)
* Our room (206) was one of the largest we've had in Europe
* Breakfast was well worth the add-on fee (scambled eggs, soft boiled eggs; cereal; fruit; yogurt; Nutella; cold and hot meat for 6.50 euros)
* Helped with any/all questions about getting around which seemed extra valuabe as Leipzig seemed to have litle in the way of information in English
* A daily sheet was available for customers at each breakfast table (albeit in German) that spoke of the weather; events; concerts; etc

There were only two things to be aware of altho neither were off-putting:

1) the price sent via email was without tax. No issue as still very competitive with others and in the US that's the norm
2) If not driving, a streetcar is a must and can add btwn $2 and $5 to your daily expense

The location is OK - if you driving into Leipzig you can get to it without passing through the centre. As some of the German-language reviews say there is no parking lot, but the bit of sidestreet just outside was free and our car was OK there.
The strassenbahn takes you to Augustusplatz in just a few minutes and is pretty frequent.

The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is excellent.

The room was clean and tidy, but overcrowded and with furniture and fittings rather worn - but for the (very low) price it was fine! The lack of airconditioning could be a problem in high summer, the nights we were there we were cool enough with the fan supplied.

There was a charge for Internet connection, which I tend to bridle at - but is was only 3 Euros.

Reviewed 13 June 2006

We stayed here for 3 nights, while in Leipzig for the WGT festival. The room was small, but clean with ensuite.

The cooked breakfast options were excellent and catered well to western tastes! (unlike some places in Germany).

The staff were friendly and there was a lift which helped with the heavy bags.

The location wasn't bad - about 8 mins on the tram to Augustusplatz - but we didn't try walking - we thought it might be a bit far.
