“Excellent location, nice Hotel, good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful rooms, nice bath room, comfortable valet parking (@ Eur 22), excellent location, beds a bit soft. Good and friendly service. Enjoyable bar. The restaurant is ok but nothing special. The only downside was the internet connection. There are different options and the free service is limited to 256 kps which is by far too slow. However we were told at the check out that we should have choosen the broadband option which is charged however charges are refunded on the bill at checkout.

Superb location, just off the main market square. Completely renovated with subdued tones. Been staying on and off here for 4 weeks and the service has been consistently of a very high standard. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Go for the city view.

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 said that, we still decided to breakfast elsewhere each day in a nearby café, which we found perfectly adequate for only a fraction of the price. Also, despite getting good a WiFi connection in our room, we were unable to use it to connect to the Internet on any of the four days of our stay, although this was not a prime concern.

Nevertheless, this is definitely a hotel we would recommend. For us, the location and level of comfort made it a clear winner.

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 and was waiting for us outside the main entrance 24 hours later - with a complimentary bottle of water for the journey.
Finding it was easy using the satnav but to actually get to it we had to ask a very helpful receptionist at the Marriott Hotel nearby where our satnav gave up - lots of temporary roadworks blocked off the road.
The room was superb with heavy doors and thick walls so we were not even aware of any other guests. Bathroom the best ever - 3 separate rooms so the shower and toilet were completely partitioned off from the main bath and basin section. The view from our top floor looking out over the small square at the back of the Rathaus was splendid and we were able to go out onto the mini balcony to view the scene next to stone carvings of cupids on horses.
As breakfast was quite expensive we ate in the cafe in the back of the complex overlooking the Rathaus which was very popular for brunch with the locals.
This hotel is luxury at a price which can only sky-rocket in the future so again I highly recommend that you go now if you can.

Room Tip: Top floor overlooking the Rathaus is splendid.

This hotel is truely "wunderbar"!
Perfect location, realy nice rooms with the highest ceillings ever, excellent service with a genuine smile. Pool and sauna with style.
Everythings is nice in this 5* hotel... and the good news is...it's affordable also!

Look for nice deals and you will pay not much more the 100€ a night.
Park at the self park opposite of the hotel for 14€ a night. Breakfast buffet is great but (to) expensive at 28€ pp, however, the hotel is surrounded by nice café's and restaurants where you can have a complete breakfast for less then € 10,-
All in all...when in Leipzig...this is the place to be!

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. Actually the Myshkin Prize is an Anti-prize, since Count Myshkin in Dostojewsky's "Idiot" is an anti-hero.
I am saying all this because the Steigenberger is in it's sober luxury with long corridors, an excellent bar, a velvety atmosphere in ante-rooms and many discreet meeting corners a hotel, where you want to conduct exceptional events. It's central location gives nothing away from the secret that the rich city of Leipzig was the most important "Handelshaus" for trade with the Orient and has become a central intellectual hub for sciences and art in modern day Germany.
Going back to Leipzig, I would book any time again in the Steigenberger, not least because of it's staff, informed and committed to their city.

Room Tip: Near to the elevators to avoid frequent long marches in the corridors, if you have to meet many peop...
