Best Western Hotel Leipzig City Center
Ranked #29 of 102 Hotels in Leipzig
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for two nights while visiting Leipzig in early September. We booked our room through an internet wholesaler. Our booking included breakfast. We arrived at the hotel around 11:00 a.m. and our room was waiting for us. Strange though – the elevator stops at the 6th floor and our room was on the 7th. We had to carry our luggage up the final flight of stairs to reach our room. At booking we had asked for a quiet room away from the train station. We received an email from the hotel saying that would entail an extra cost. We declined hoping for the best. While our room was on the station side it was very quiet with very little outside or inside noise. The room itself was small but comfortable. The bathroom was also comfortable with all in working order. The room was very clean and well lit. It could have used a luggage stand though. Breakfast was a buffet that included hot and cold food. It was quite good and tasty although the hot food could have been hotter. The choice was excellent. The location of the hotel is excellent – right across from the main train station and all of the sights are within walking distance.

Although an older property, we would recommend this hotel. Free WiFi in the room, in-room safe, coffee and tea making facilities, and great location make this a fine hotel to use when visiting Leipzig. It was good value for the price. And Leipzig is well worth a visit!

Although in a very good location next to the train station (if you consider that a good location!), the rooms are very small. Clean and well organized, but not an inch to spare. The breakfast was very good, however, and the desk staff pleasant. An easy walk into the town.

The location of the hotel is excellent . It is right in front of the main station and is very safe and secure . Leipzig is not a very large town so getting from one place to another is not really very difficult . And having a hotel at a perfect location can save money for taxis .
The hotel is a short walk to the city center . a 7-10 min walk and you reach the center .
Wifi is free but I am guessing the modems were outdated . My samsung android phone just was unable to browse using the wifi. And i have not had this problem at any other hotel . Yes , do they have a computer next to the reception but it was pretty slow and outdated .
My major problem was the size of the rooms and bathrooms . The room was really small . With two of us staying in a room - it was really cramped . The bathroom was tiny and cramped even by European standards . We were there only for one night so this was not a major concern . But definitely would not consider this hotel for a longer stay in Leipzig

The location is very convenient for people approaching the town by train, since they only have to cross the street: spare your money for taxi from station to hotel! Despite the position, our room was quite, we just hear trams in the night. Our room was not large but clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very small even for single person at a time. The breakfast is served early in the morning from 6:30 am, it is well-assorted and food is of good quality.
Personnel is polite and friendly. We rent two city-bikes in the hotel (10€ per day) to visit the city.

Our flight was delayed for 7 hours when heading to Leipzig. We contacted the hotel via email to inform them that we would be arriving at midnight and please hold our rooms for us. They emailed back within 30 minutes to inform us that this was not a problem. Great customer service and initial impression!

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It's across the road from the railway station and the central tram station (which we used daily to get to the conference centre), and only 5 minutes walk to the centre, with all of the bars, restaurants, sightseeing etc.

The rooms aswell as the lobby/breakfast area were very clean. A good range was provided for breakfast. The bed was also very comfortable.

Only drawback was that the WiFi didn't work for me because the signal wasn't strong enough in my room. My collegues could get it to work for them though so maybe if I was in a different room it wouldn't have been a problem.

Overall It was great value for money and I wouldn't hesitate in staying here again.

The best things for this hotel are its' position and the breakfast. It is located at meters from the main railway station and at 5 -10 minutes to walk from the city center. At about 7 minutes you can find a mall with a supermarket, with very convenient food, water, beer, fruits etc.. The weak point are the rooms, really very small. I was there starting July and the conditioner was no good. For having some air, I open largely the window, but lost all my privacy. The breakfast was great. Except the coffee, which was filter average... Very good Wi-Fi Internet. I regretted I did not try the sauna, which is free for the hotel clients.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back side of the hotel. The view can be uglier, but if you open the window, th...

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.
