“Reliable, quality hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

The hotel is easy to find if arriving from the station. Go to the west exit and the hotel is directly opposite. If you come out the main central exit, cross the road turn left and walk for 200m. The outside rooms (odd numbers) are sunnier but overlook the road and trams and therefore noisier especially if you like to sleep with the window open. This is what we had. If I visited again I'd ask for an inner room for more quiet though I think these may not have as much natural light. The receptionist was welcoming and spoke good English. The room was a good size, furnishings and fittings were in good order and it was spotlessly clean. All that I'd expect from a hotel in this chain, which I've always found reliable. I thought 15 euro for breakfast was a little steep, but had this on our final morning for convenience. I take it back it was well worth it. An excellent spread and selection of foods,with a well organised and managed team that served coffee, cleared plates and replenished food seamlessly. Given kids eat free if the parents eat, it was understandably popular with families on the morning we were there. As central Leipzig is fairly well contained, the hotel is within easy walking distance of all the main sites. Recommended. I'd certainly stay again.

Room Tip: Even numbered rooms are quieter

Located right next to the main train station, which gives you transport connections to all of Leipzig, the location couldn't be better.

The staff is friendly, rooms are spacious and comfortable. Shower always had hot water and good water pressure.

Nothing more you could ask.

Location was close and within walking distance of the city centre. The place itself was a bit shabby, with a posse of smokers clogging up the entrance (not the best place for the smoking area) but the service was prompt and friendly.

Perfect place for a short business trip. Convenient to the train station. Did not eat at the hotel, but saw several people in the restaurant every night and morning. It's basically a nicer version (and bigger) of the ibis hotel chain.

The Novotel Leipzig City is a nicely located hotel in Leipzig but definitely not worth the name Novotel. The hotel is old, the rooms are small and the furniture seems to be self-made by employees. I stayed 8 nights at this hotel--bed clothes were not changed and toiletries were only replaced if you required to by calling the reception. This is not the standard for a(n apparently) 4 stars hotel.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

the hotel is very central located. just cross the street, it is the train station (and Leipzig train station itself is a big shopping mall). We can easily walk to the Opera, the market place, and most of the attractions. The Leipzig zoo is only 15 minutes walk. The Clara Zetkin Park is also within 20 minutes walk. The room is suprisingly quiet.
The breakfast selection was great and the restaurant staff were very friendly. There is a playing area for the kids next to the restaurant, so my kids did not need to sit waiting for us to finish the breakfast slowly.
The only thing which is not so perfect is the size of the room (and its bathroom). Well, many hotels do not offer a hotel room for 4 persons at all, so what should i complain?!
If we are going to Leipzig again, I will definitely choose the same hotel again.
