“Does the trick!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Spent 4 days here for business and the location is perfect. Right across from the train station and a quick walk in the historic city center. Tram stations right out front. Desk staff is friendly and quite helpful. I had the queen single room and it was ok...bed comfy, room clean, decent bathroom/shower although just soap dispensers in shower and on the sink. No AC...open the window. Free wi fi but requires getting daily codes (they'll give you enough codes to last your stay). Mini bar in room but I simply went to the market in the trainstation and filled it up with cheaper items. Breakfast is ok and included in the room rate. I had lunch and dinner in the hotel's restaurant. Service was slow because the waitstaff did double duty as the bartender.
Suggest getting a room on the upper floors, one that overlooks the courtyard.

Room Tip: ask for the 5th or 6th floor overlooking the courtyard

This Hotel is just across the Railway Station and 5 min walking distance to the City Centre. The Rooms are very clean and cozy and the Breakfast Buffet is included in the Room Rate. This Hotel offers a Welcome Drink upon arrival and flyers of what to do or to visit in Town and how to get there. It is quiet during Nighttime even it is close to the Rail and busy Streets. I only gave it a 4 stars, because it is quite expensive for a longer stay.

As other reviewers have noted, it's in a good location next to the main railway station and taxi/tram links, but consequently about 15/20 min walk into town centre. My room was on 2nd floor facing onto the station, so plenty of activity outside. I was there for 7 nights, but alas suffered from a heatwave with temps topping 30 degrees each day for a least 3 days, and with no A/C anywhere in the hotel, it would have been unbearable hot at night if I'd not persuaded staff to provide me with an electric fan, which I kept on all night (hence only 3 stars rather than the four it might have earned for a stay in the winter). Good cold selection at breakfast but very limited hot food. Bar seemed little used in the late evening and closed at 11pm each night, so no late night drinking! Staff generally friendly and helpful (but with not all of them). Rooms, bedding, bathroom, etc, were all very clean and kept so during my 7 night stay. Room key system not the easiest to operate, and the initial encounter with the two lifts can be confusing because they don't both go to the same floors.

We stayed at this hotel on a recent business trip to Leipzig. We arrived by plane and the hotel in only a 15-20 minute taxi ride from the airport. The hotel is in an excellent position about 5 minutes walk from the main town centre. The hotel staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough to help us enjoy our stay.
We upgraded to a larger room which was really worthwhile as it included a separate lounge/sitting room which was great to spread out.
The breakfasts were very good and on our last day we left very early to catch a train, and they offered to put together some breakfast hampers (free of charge) for us as the breakfast hadn't open when we left.
WiFi was included in our room but whilst handy wasn't all that fast. Our biggest gripe was the lack of Air Conditioning. The hotel is right next to a busy road and straight across the road from the train hbf so opening the double glazed windows while trying to sleep wasn't an option to cool the room down.
Overall, we really enjoyed the experience.

This hotel has a great location just across the road from the side of the Hauptbahnhof (turn left from the train platforms and keep going). Check-in was quick and very friendly - even extending to a lovely glass of hot, sweet apple tea. In fact, all the staff I saw were extremely helpful, efficient and friendly.

My room was on the front of the hotel, thereby facing the side of the station. The road is busy, so I was a little concerned about sleeping well, but the double glazing is excellent, and I only heard the trams as a faint rumble in the night - and I am a fussy sleeper! I also had french windows (only one half opens) with a small "balconette" (too small to be called a balcony!). Whilst I couldn't venture on to this structure, I could sit with one window open enjoying the view over the huge Platz in front of the station.

German hotels are not noted for being over-luxurious, but they are functional and generally well-appointed. This was the case here. Everything was of a high standard, well-maintained and spotlessly clean. The armchair was very comfortable, as was the bed, and the bathroom was very well thought out. I particularly liked the loudspeaker which meant I could hear the TV/radio whilst in the bathroom. This is something I've only come across in luxury class hotels. The soundpfroofing between the rooms is also excellent. I didn't realise I had neighbours until day 3 of my stay. Another nice touch is that the rooms have a doorbell...There was also a room safe.

Breakfast was the usual Germanic fare, with some concessions to the health-conscious - half-fat milk and cheese. There is a pub-style restaurant which is ok, but it can get very busy, so best to book if you think you'll be using it. The bar is also a nice place to relax after a long day's sightseeing, although some of the prices are on the steep side.

The centre of town is a 10-15 minute walk away.

I would definitely stay here again. The chances of getting a really cheap deal are slim, but I thought it was worth paying that bit extra (about £85/night, including breakfast).

Quite possibly the worst place I have ever stayed at... moments from town centre and free street parking but the rooms! Oh my goodness the rooms! Free internet and nice enough staff but the rooms are so basic that you might as well stay at a YMCA! It is described as an art deco building but this is no masterpiece of the 1920s, on the contrary... the neighbourhood is dirty and loud traffic rumbles... rooms have no AC... The centre of town is decent and arts and sciences abound but don't venture beyond its limits

Victor's was at best average, clean but dated very much 80s style look and feel to the rooms. It was very warm in both rooms on 5s and 6s, windows could not be left open as tram runs below all night. No air conditioning, can't imagine summertime with windows closed. Rooms had a strong floral perfume smell, not very pleasant for me with allergies. Staff was very professional and friendly, and breakfast nice and good variety.

Room Tip: Stay at Novotel across the street
