Business traveller from Texas
Posted Apr 18, 2016 on Hotels
The hotel was extremely close to the main conference center in Leipzig and so was useful for that purpose. A major supermarket chain with ATM, fast food restaurants and a train station were all within 5 minutes walking distance. The hotel itself is extremely clean, with onsite gym, sauna and solarium and I had a comfortably spacious room. The staff was extremely professional and helpful. The food was also amazing, the breakfast buffet alone would make a stay at this hotel well worth it (fresh baked breads, pastries and cakes and tons of tea and juice choices, cereal, fruits, sausages, bacon, ham, amazing eggs of varying description and a fried potato pancake kind of a thing which was great). The lunch and dinner options were also great, albeit some of the meat portions were somewhat smaller than a Texan is used to. There isn't much to do in this neighbourhood however, no museums or clubs or even that many restaurants - but it's a 15-20 minute trip to the city center by train or taxi if you desire that kind of a thing. The peace and quiet is perfect for a business trip however. Although there was free Wi-Fi, the internet speed left something to be desired, so not great for streaming video but more than adequate for checking e-mail etc. The TV also had BBC and CNN in English, so I was able to keep up to date on local news in the US. Overall, I have to say that I really enjoyed my stay and would have no trouble recommending this hotel to all my colleagues and friends.
