“simply perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

if you go for a business trip in the area of Halle-Leipzig, this hotel is recommended
it is simple and cheap, but provides all a business traveller needs: it's clean, it's cheap, the staff is friendly, the breakfast is good, there is a proper parking lot, less than fifteen minutes walk to the main train station, around twenty minutes walk into town (only "but": the wifi costs 1EUR per day)

Room Tip: rooms towards the inner yard are the quietest rooms

Booked a single room at the Steintor and was very pleased with the decor, the size, and amenities in the room. Good carpet, well furnished, large desk area, nice bedside table and even a fridge in the room. It had nice big windows and a good bathroom. Not in the centre of town though, It is probably a 10 minute walk away and the railway station about the same, but a tram passes close by. Although I did not take breakfast I noticed it offered very flexible breakfast hours.

All in all this is not a bad place to stay. I had a single room for three days in September paying Euro40 per night via Hotels.de, and it was a clean comfortable, basic room. The first one (102) had a defective toilet, but to give the hotel credit they had moved me to another room (107) by the time I came back on the first night. This new room was on the side of the hotel and had a shower, not a bath, but none of this mattered to me. If you like air conditioning then this isn't the place for you, and high summer might be very warm. On the side of the hotel you can definitely hear the trams that run down the main road if you have the window open. The TV was a fairly basic selection of German channels, but again this is not an issue for me. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, but their grasp of English is at the same level as my grasp of German!

Parking down the side of the hotel is free! and spaces in the evening are quite easy to find. You are also about 10 minutes walk from the Bahnhof even if you are towing luggage (you won't be carrying it will you?) so a taxi will be cheap too.

Breakfast is the usual German bread, ham, cheese and cereals. You also get the usual orange juice, tea and coffee. There are other bits and bobs, so the choice is quite good.

Unfortunately on my last morning, I made a bit of a tactical error. I knew that I had to leave at four o'clock in the morning but I rashly thought that I would be able to check out at that early hour. Not so! Through a combination of several problems (security staff and not reception staff, problems with printing and problems with the card machine I believe) I was not able to pay with my credit card. By the time I had finished paying, I had two euros in my pocket. I cannot really blame the hotel, and I should have known enough to pay the night before.

I would be happy to stay again.
