The hotel’s excellent central location, together with a very high standard of luxury and comfort, and its friendly, helpful staff made this an ideal choice of hotel. However, as others have noted, the breakfasts are very expensive here, although there are à la carte options which may be better value for those who prefer a smaller, more limited meal. Having...

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... More

Such a shame that a refurbished hotel doesn't bother to install a working wifi system for many of their rooms. I ended up walking around with members if staff trying to find rooms that their signal actually reached.

The Steigenberger in Leipzig is one of the great hotels for cultural encounters. Knowing this I was very excited when Peter Sloterdijk invited me to Leipzig to be present for the second "Myshkin Prize" celebration, which went this year to Pema, (sister of the Dalai Lama), Noam Chomsky, the linguist and political activist and Mr. Hummel, a banker from Switzerland....

I arrived at this hotel following a long day of train travel. It had been a very long day, and I was exhausted when I arrived at the hotel. The front desk staff was great and really made me feel welcome, despite my inability to speak any German. Staff recommendations for restaurants around the corner was perfect. I also had... More

The hotel was nice, as was the staff (friendly and helpful). The location is perfect in downtown Leipzig so one can walk in no time to the restaurants, shops, zoo, etc.,. There are a couple points, though. The first has nothing to do with the hotel itself, but with the city/road situation. It is horrible to get to this hotel... More

Excellent room, comfortable bed, polite staff, nice food, but terrible WiFi! So, very frustrating and time consuming to book anything online. The signal drops out and it takes ages for pages to load. This seems inexplicable in a hotel which is modern in every other respect.

We stayed five nights in this hotel and can recommend it as a perfect, although expensive place to stay in the centre of Leipzig. It is near everything! Great shopping and restaurants close by. Everything was spotless, the staff friendly and helpful . The room was beautiful, quiet on the 4th floor, with a beautiful bathroom , Nespresso machine( a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Behind the historical facade of the former exhibition building in the city centre of Leipzig, the guest will find a truly modern luxury hotel, the Steigenberger Grandhotel Handelshof. The spacious rooms and suites have no comparison anywhere in Leipzig, as is the case with the large lobby bar, wine store and the Brasserie Le Grand. In addition to planning time for an extended stroll through the adjoining Grimmaische Strasse and Leipzig's pedestrian zone, the guest should be sure to reserve a couple of hours to be spend in the spacious fitness and wellness area. The function rooms on the conference floor are ideal for both international conferences and private occasions. Music lovers will appreciate the short distances to the concert halls of the city such as the Gewandhaus, Leipzig's concert hall, the opera house or St. Thomas Church. Also other landmarks and famous places of interest in and around the town hall square and the Naschmarkt can be reached easily on foot. Starting on January 1st 2014, the usage of the WLAN will be free of charge for guests of all hotels of the Steigenberger Hotels AG. ... more   less
