    Parking around the hotel is a bit of struggle, you can park for free on the street but it's difficult to find a spot, especially in the evening and the hotel offers parking for 10 euro/night which is quite a lot for my taste. Also the breakfast is kinda expenive - 15euro/person, so we didn't order it and went to a cafe in Leipzig and it was definitely cheaper.

    Good location if you plan to visit the Monument to the Battle of the Nations. Also the city centre is easily accessible via Sbahn (goes pretty often, it takes approx. 10 mins to the city centre) and the hotel gives you a free 1 day ticket to the public transport.

    I don't like to have moquette in the room.

    I liked that they give you a free public transport ticket. Sauna was pretty good also and free of charge. Easy to park close to the hotel.

    45 min walking distance from the center, but city-tickets for the use of public transportation, valid for all the stay, were included in the price! It was easy to find a free parking place near the hotel. Comfortable

    Restaurant at the hotel is a bit expensive and was crowded

    Free ticket for public transport is given at the reception. Parking is tricky with a box on the car roof, ceilings are 2,0-2,1m, so it took a loon time to maneuver through.

    Make sure that everyone knows that they need to book a parking space in advance!! and additionally pay for it! They didn't even tell us that we can park in front of the hotel and just told us that there are no spaces left... really the service could be better. Also, the gym was not even a real gym! If there is only one cycling machine, please DO NOT call it a "fitness club"!! (as written on homepage).

    Breakfast was really good but far too expensive in my opinion if you are a light eater. Service was good though, fresh coffee on every table and plenty to eat.

    Hotel is 10 min. drive from the center, so of course it is more convenient to drive on your car. There is a problem with parking, as the hotel takes 10 euro for night and do not have many places available and it's quite hard to park car outsiade.

    Clean room. Cleaning every day. Very nice, friendly staff. No sounds from the other rooms.

    The only big issue with this hotel is the limited use of Internet 500MB/day which eventually runs out after watching 1h video. I found it very discomforting to have a limited I terener access in a nice 4star hotel.

    The rooms are as advertised on photos, the cleanness is excellent. Having a mini fridge in the room is an advantage if you'd like to keep small food items. Very close to public transport and rather a calm location.

    People working at the reception are very impolite. The room was ridicoulous small. Furniture was totally old and ugly (in a bad sense). The room smelled strange, was too small and sad. It was totally overpriced for what you get. Breakfast was not included. It has 4 stars, but I would not even give it one star. I have been in much better motels. They should renovate the whole hotel and hire new personal.

    Nichts.
