A one night, mid-week stay on a business trip with the room rate being a corporate rate that, to be fair, was excellent value (approx £60 inc breakfast). A 27 storey hotel, very close to the centre of Leipzig (a five minute stroll had me in the main square and close to numerous bars and restaurants). The room (the "deluxe" double) was clean with great views (17th floor). The bed was large and comfortable although it was clearly a twin pushed together to make a large "double". Two matresses and two quilts kind of gave the game away. Lots of storage, mini bar, room safe, no tea / coffee making facilities, wired internet (€7.50 for one hour, €19 for 24hrs), decent sized bathroom and a good, hot shower. Bathrobes and slippers supplied for use, although the bathrobe was very thin and not particularly nice against the skin.
There is an attractive bar on the 27th floor and a two star Michelin restaurant up there and there is a separate restaurant lower down (first floor?) and then another bar in the lobby area. Rooms start on the 10th floor so if you're worried about heights then bear this in mind. Lots of conferences take place here (built for that very reason as I understand) so it can be busy at certain times. They offer a limo service if that's important to you.
The staff I dealt with (Reception - check in and out - and the Falco Bar) were polite and attentive and spoke excellent English. The breakfast (on paper) didn't appeal so I gave it a miss. Looking at the information left in the room, it appears that there is a Pool and Sauna area (with it's own dedicated lift, apparently) but the information made it sound like using these was at additional cost to the guest. Clearly, if that's true then it's not what many guests to a (supposed) five star establishment would expect. However, time was limited so I wasn't able to check it out for myself.
English and American newspapers appeared to be on sale at the front desk.
