The hotel is a converted residential building, so the rooms in the apartment are full size. Our "deluxe double room" (booking.com description) had a separate living room, bedroom and kitchen, as well as a bathroom and an area near the front door that I don't know the name of but which had a cupboard and coat rack. The building is the type of post-war apartment block that many Germans live in. It has been refurbished and has a lift, but you can still see original architectural features such as the chunky balcony and the precast concrete door frames. We found this interesting, as we have seen many of these buildings from the outside but never been inside one. All of the windows in this one are the modern type which can open in two ways. Every room has a fixed light, usually on the ceiling. In places where the original concrete moulding has been chipped, it obviously can't be fixed, so expect to notice a few rough spots on the door frames and balcony. The bathroom is fully refurbished and is similar to other German hotel bathrooms. There is a full size bath that an adult can actually bathe in, and a hose-type shower over the bath (use as a hand shower to avoid flooding the bathroom). I was very pleased to find a rubber bath mat and a bathroom stool provided, something you aren't usually given. So, you can shower standing up, but not standing under a fixed shower head. The living room had a round dining table with two chairs. A tablecloth was provided. There wasn't a separate desk, so we used the dining table for eating and working. The lounge and wall units were certainly 1980s style in appearance, but couldn't possibly be that old as they were in very good condition. We never used the TV. The bedroom had two single beds pushed together, two bedside tables with lamps, and a large wardrobe. There was plenty of space around the bed. Extra pillows were in the cupboard near the front door. The pillows were big square feather and down ones. The kitchen has a full size electric stove (oven + three hotplates) and a half-height fridge with no freezer or ice maker. The sink has a draining board, which makes washing up much easier. There was adequate tableware for two people, but the only cookware was two saucepans. We asked for a frying pan, and one was found for us, but they didn't have any kind of a colander/strainer. We later noticed that there was no cooking knife (to cut raw meat or vegetables), no cutting board, no wooden spoon or serving spoon, no can opener, no egg slice, etc., so we bought a plastic strainer and a flat wooden tool at the supermarket. There is no microwave oven, although one would fit perfectly on top of the fridge. We didn't try the electric coffee maker. There was no toaster, but the oven can make toast. Washing up detergent, a cloth and tea towels (dish towels) were provided, but no scourer. (We have our own scourer and made the saucepans much cleaner.) The balcony isn't very pretty, but it has a canvas awning and brackets you can hook a pegless clothesline to. (I don't know if you're actually allowed to hang washing, but I did hang some lingerie.) The WiFi worked fine for my tablet, and fairly well for the smartphone, but not as well for the laptop. We found that the laptop worked best in the apartment hall. As the building's internal walls are concrete, adding more WAPs in the main corridor would probably fix this up. There were plenty of power points around the rooms, although not always in the most convenient locations. Housekeeping serviced the room every day, doing the beds, towels, and taking away all the rubbish. Everything was clean and in good working order. Even all the lights worked. The area seems quite safe. There is a tram stop on the street corner, although you could walk to the centre. The REWE supermarket is about two blocks away, and we used the coin-operated SB Waschsalon laundrette that's around the corner. The supermarket is not open on Sundays, which is normal in Germany. So, don't expect it to be swanky like a Citadines apartment hotel, but it is very liveable if you can cope with minimal kitchenware. We would stay here again.
Everything was wonderful. The rooms are very clean, the location is very close to the center, the staff is very nice and helpful. The only thing I was sorry about was the price--if I had booked it in advance I would have paid less-but this was my problem, not theirs.
This hotel looks really run down rooms very dated needs a refresh, breakfast 10 euros limited, but nice to be fair. Not a lot around so eat at hotel best option. Staff excellent very helpful and really friendly. The city centre 1.5/2 mile walk, but what a lovely place so many places to eat, loved the city centre. Again if less Mobil def need hotel closer as taxi not cheap and trams a little confuesing .
A quaint hotel in former eastern Germany, centrally situated for public transport around town. We stayed for two nights. The hotel lacks A/C, but with a veranda it was easy to open the window and air out the room so this was not very missed. The breakfast room was very delicate and the breakfast was at a high standard.
This hotel was perfect for our stay in Leipzig. We booked a two-bedroom apartment as there were four of us in our party. The apartment was clean and in good order, plenty of space with a large living room with a small balcony. There is a small kitchen if you wanted to cook your own meals. The building and surrounding area felt very East-German and was reminiscent of what you'd expect from the GDR era. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and available 24/7. You can take the tram to the centre of town though we preferred the 15-20 minute walk.
We stayed at this hotel during the Wave Gotik Treffen festival. This hotel was ideal for us - it was easy to get everywhere from there and it was only 3 stops with the tram to the Central Station. Our room was large and space, more like an appartement than a room! We had everything we needed there. 24 hour reception is also very useful. Wifi worked without any issues. The front desk staff were lovely, nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them! So in this way: thanks a lot to the receptionists! I think we will stay here again :-) Greetings, Jana
The place reminded us of East Germany, it was like in the 80's. As if we stayed in someone's home back then. The rooms were spacious, the furniture was quite old, and the carpets stained and worn out. The beds were large, but in one of the rooms, quite uncomfortable and the TV was too small. The wifi connection was OK, it needs some improvement. Quite a small bathroom, with no proper ventilation. Very good breakfast, nice people at the reception and at breakfast. It's near to the city center. I had to pay for the appartement at arrival, which bothered me, frankly. Didn't they trust us, that we will pay at the end?
The hotel is really nice the room I stayed in was lovely you have a kitchen as well and they have free wifi and the room I stayed in had two bedrooms with a tv and the beds are really big, also it's only a ten minute walk into the city centre, they give you blankets and extra pillows and you can buy alcohol at the front desk which is open 24 hours when the cleaners come they fold everything up nice and neatly, the people at reception are really nice and friendly
The place is a bit scruffy and old fashioned but the room is comfortable, no frills. Even if we were facing the road and could hear the humming of cars passing by we slept very well. You can walk to town centre in 10', to the station in 15'. You are required to leave the keys when go out but the reception could be closed at certain predefined times for half an hour so plan accordingly.
Apart from poor bathroom/shower design (the shower was at the opposite end to the shower screen) our stay was perfect .
