“Conveniently located across from the DB station!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Great location! If you arrive by train, turn right and take the exit in that direction (same direction as the DB Lounge). As soon as you exit the station, look directly across the road and voila the hotel is right there. Couldn’t be more convenient. The walk to the main hub of Leipzig is 2 min. away with most attractions in a 10 min. radius.

Free breakfast and Internet were decent. The breakfast was small, but did have you cold meats, cheese, yogurt, fruit, cereals, and your hot items of scrambled eggs, bacon, and sausage. My husband was delighted to find an English newspaper to read – USA Today!

Our room was on the top floor right beside and behind the elevators. You could hear the light hum of the elevators at night, but if you didn’t focus on it, it was fine. The room was larger than other ones we stayed in as it had a separate little sitting area, which was a nice change from other European hotels. There is a mini-bar and a safe as well as coffee and tea in your room. Pillows were flat, but you could get better pillows at the front desk. The bed was okay.

The sauna area was nice and relaxing though it’s in the basement where it is old looking when you get off the elevator. The hotel is a bit dated and could use new carpets, but otherwise it was fine for our stay. The computer center is hidden in a corner, but useful as you could print information you needed. Overall it was a nice relaxing stay! Staff was very helpful too.

The hotel is within walking distance of nearly all the sights worth seeing. Although the rooms are not very big they a very comfortable, the same goes for the bathroom. The buffet breakfast is excellent with a large choice of foods.
If arriving by train (I can recommend the airport train, only 15 minutes into the city), when leaving the platform turn right, go to lower level and take the exit( sign say Kurt Schumacher Strasse) the hotel is just across the road.

Many positive aspects to this hotel: friendly staff; spotlessly clean; excellent location, directly opposite the Bahnhof W. exit; first-rate continental breakfast, -grapefruit halves much appreciated, as were tea/coffee making facilities in the room. We did find our two-bed room rather cramped, & the bathroom/toilet, although ingeniously designed to make the most of the space, [& with an excellent shower], was very tight for space, even for those of average-build. However, a good base for Leipzig itself, Dresden, & Weimar,

Room Tip: Rooms on the main-road side can suffer from the noise of the trams, if windows kept open.

Clean room and ensuite. Polite and friendly staff who were happy to speak English.
Within easy walking distance of main city centre. Opposite the main train station and large modern shopping mal within the old station building. One drawback with having a room at the front was that we could not have the window open as the tram station was just down the road and the trams were frequent and noisy. However this was not a problem as the weather was cool. Breakfast was excellent and we were able to keep the room until mid day.

Room Tip: At the back away from the trams. However I imagine the view would not be good as the hotel backs ont...

The hotel was fine and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good with a great selection. The rooms, although very small were clean and relatively comfortable. The decor was old and could use refreshing. The rooms were not very quiet and we could clearly hear the trams coming and going in the morning at the end of the street. The area is not very pretty but seemed safe. It was OK for the evening but I would not want to spend much more than one or two nights.

Room Tip: See if you can get a room away from the front side of the hotel that is right on the street.

During the Leipziger Buchmesse (Book fair) I had to stay in the Best Western. It is ok. Rooms are small and the bathroom is even too small. Otherwise the location is great and it is a perfect place to explore the city even after an exhausting day at the Leipzi fair.
