“Clean hotel with bad Internet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

The bathrooms are great, especially the water pressure in the showers. The beds are sufficiently comfortable. The breakfast is limited. There is only wifi in the lobby, not in the rooms. The location is perfect.

Stayed for the night due to a work-related visit. The location was very good for my needs.
The hotel itself is very clean and nice. The room, as others mentioned, is very small and the furniture inside (bed, desk etc) occupy most of it, in a way that didn't allow me to fully open my suitcase.

Wifi service is only available in the lobby, and costs 2 eur. I decided to pass on that.
Breakfast was OK for me, I guess that for meat lovers it would be even better.
I am not sure whether it's the cultural difference, or just the way things are done in eastern germany, but I felt that the staff were rather annoyed by the fact they had to speak with me in English (which, they didn't..in the two times I approached the desk, I got replies in German / or in the better scenario, some brief english words).

Price was cheap.
For touristic needs: as far as I'm aware, the main tourist centre of Leipzig is 20 minute walk from the hotel.

Bottom line: clean & cheap Vs. unwelcoming sensation for an English speaker & no wifi

I stayed here for one night because I was on business travel in Leipzig.
The best first: The breakfast room of the hotel is relatively nice, although nothing special.
Having said this, here are the downs: I got a very shabby, extremely small room in the basement. Internet connection didn't work there. There were two beds (Why, when I had ordered a SINGLE room, I don't know) which were ridiculously small. The bathroom was extremely small - no bath tub, just a very tiny shower. There was almost no room to store away my luggage. This is really hilarious. At least the flatscreen TV worked. The floor was covered with an ugly carpet which had stains on it -DISGUSTING! The only rennovated thing in this room was the bathroom which was clean, too.
Well, I had to shell out 79 Euros for such a shabby room including breakfast (which was nothing special).
I would say, this hotel used to be an appartment house and then was probably transformed into a hotel. (That's why you still have real keys, no magnetic cards). The person at the front desk was nice and helpful but still the room in my opinion is way overpriced: no athmosphere, I did not feel well in this shabby, extremely small room in the basement, when - during the day, there was not even enough daylight to sit at the very tiny desk and read something in preparation for my meeting on the next day.

I would never stay there again and I do not recommend it.

Room Tip: I cannot recommend anything except saying that I had a terrible room in the basement and that I will...

A pleasant hotel which is a little way out of the main city centre although tram stop on Route 16 is a minute away.

Clean, friendly and good brakfast all at reasonable price. There is building work going on across the street although as the windows are double glazed this did not bother me!

Room Tip: Away from the front at present

The 'Hotel am Bayerischen Platz' is named after the Bavarian square, which is right in front of it. The building itself has a lot of history, and is very elegantly furbished. The rooms and dining facilities are well worth a high rating, aswell as the central location in the city.

POSITIVE ASPECTS
Rooms are elegant and tidy. Breakfast is rich in both variety and quality. A private parking area is located in the backyard, free of charge for the hotel guests.

NEGATIVE ASPECTS
The reception is not occupied around the clock. For example, If you arrive late at night, the entrance door is closed and you have to buzz the receptionist.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT
The tram and bus stop 'Bayerischer Platz' is right across the street, with tram lines going directly to the central station. Suburban trains, called S-Bahn, also stop nearby.

CONCLUSION
This hotel is suitable for visitors with a high standard. Low-budget travellers may find the luxuries an unnecessary expense. Quality and comfort is high, and the distance to downtown is no more than a 10 min walk, or a couple of stops by tram.
