The new InterCityHotel looks like the little brother of the nearby Westin Leipzig. The interior presents itself in the apparently typical brownish style of InterCity Hotels.
Breakfast is available at € 15 per person if not already included in the room rate.
As we stayed at the hotel on a Sunday, free public parking was available in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.
The InterCity Hotel is strategically located close to Leipzig Central station. You are provided with tickets allowing the free use of public transport during the days of your stay. If you want to visit the interesting old city centre of Leipzig you do not really need public transport as the main sights can easily be reached on foot.
The staff at the reception was friendly.
Breakfast was of good quality.
The room on an upper floor offered a view of the Westin Leipzig. All home furnishing items worked perfectly. The non-dimmable nightstand lights were uncomfortably bright.
Considering the 4-star rating of the hotel the bathroom was rather tiny.
The main drawback of the hotel was the slow transfer rate of the Wi-Fi (allegedly a maximum of 256/s is possible). It turned out to be impossible to load a map of Leipzig within a reasonable time frame. Booking portals (e.g. booking.com) advertise the free WLAN as one of the assets of the hotel but in practical terms it is nearly useless.
If you can forgo the use of the free Wi-Fi, the hotel is a good choice.
