Excellent hotel, right in the center of Leipzig.
I was their guest as a student of the Porsche Sport Driving School. So, as part of the deal, i had a discounted price of 110 euro/night, which makes it a great value for money.
The hotel is brand new, opened April 2011, i've heard. High quality materials, a fully refurbished historical building, very well situated.
Rooms are large and very very well designed. Air conditioning a bit too loud though :))))
A wonderful spa, with hot sauna, bio sauna, steam bath tropical shower and cold shower, ice dispenser etc etc
Friendly and professional staff. Nevertheless, it happened that i forgot a nice shirt and tried to contact the hotel to get it back next time i am in Leipzig. The answer was that they never found any shirt in my room :((
spectacular bar next to lobby.
also, valet parking, which is useful.
definitely, would recommend to all.

I wish we had stayed longer in Steigenberger Grandhotel Handelshof in Leipzig. It was only a one night stay-over on our drive to Berlin. The hotel had just opened in April and the location is great, smack in the center of town. My husband and I arrived rather late, close to mid-night on a rainy evening drive from Frankfurt. The valet has closed so we just parked right in front of the hotel and checked in. The night receptionist was efficient and professional and we were in our room in 5 minutes. The room was beautiful, spacious, contemporary, luxurious and the bathroom big and spacious with frosted glass toilet and shower doors. The closet was big and the bathrobe thick and comfy and slippers plush and cushiony. The bed was very comfortable and we had a great night sleep after a long drive.

Breakfast was wonderful with a great spread at the buffet. Service was a little slow and not attentive so that was the only disappointment. Upon check out, we were pleasantly surprise to find our car was nicely washed! As my husband has been driving it for work for the last 2 weeks before I arrived, the windshield was plastered with dead bugs even the heavy rain the night before couldn't wash out! So it was very noticeable when we entered the cart and the windshield was sparkly clean!!! What a pleasant surprise!!!!

On our drive out of Leipzig in day light, we saw a beautiful city and wished we could stay longer to explore this "city of romance and music". We will definitely return to Leipzig and when we do, Steigenberger Grandhotel Handelshof will be our choice hotel!

The newly opened hotel is located in the city heart of Leipzig. The beautiful antique fassade and the modern inside combine nicely.
The young staff is "old school", i.e., very polite and supportive.
Rooms are superclean and stylish (beds are in particular comfortable!).
Breakfast is OK but not 5-Star necessarily.
Caution: if you need to sleep in, do not book rooms looking to the church as the bells will put an end to your sleeping in!

This hotel is perfectly located in an old building next to the old city hall in the very center of Leipzig. The building has been renovated to a very high standard. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. It is mainly a business hotel so they are offering quite attractive discounts in the holiday period. Breakfast is on the expensive side, but the quality matches the price.We would definitely stay in this hotel again.
