Hotel Fuerstenhof, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Leipzig

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Room was excellent and fortunately facing the courtyard instead of the busy ring road, but this was mainly due to my upgrade. Staff were attentive at all times. Breakfast was good but did not match the variety and excellence of the Westin Berlin or the Villa Kennedy in Frankfurt.

I have in the meantime stayed at the Furstenhof several times and it is a pleasure to stay here while visiting Leipzig. The staff is friendly and always willing to help. The rooms are spacious and well equiped. The breakfast is good and valet parking is working perfectly ... although not cheap (32E). Overall a real pleasure staying here and will be here next time I will be visiting Leipzig again.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. This is a very old building. Rooms have been renovated and updated, and they look very nice and clean. But there is definite smell of mold in the bathroom. Other then that it was a good hotel. Very convenient location. Excellent service.

The room was nice, and with fresh winter-air from open windows, the sewer-smell vanished. It got better next day. The TV was not in good shape and stopped working, now and then, until it didn`t work at all the last of 4 nights. A member of the staff had a hard time fixing it. The radio in the bathroom also needed fixing, and three men was working on it when I came to my room for a rest. I didn`t even know there was a radio! Room maintenance could be too much with visits both day and night. We had to use the "Don`t disturb" sign. "Preparing the bed for the night" is not luxury. It is a nuisance! Lunch in the nice foyer was costly and it took long time to get a beer and much longer to get the average sandwiches. We skipped the restaurant after this experience. Breakfast had the nice price of 31 euro we were told. I wonder what that included. Three times the staff asked if we were staying at the hotel, for how long and in which room. I guess that is the price for staying in a luxury hotel?? Even in the lovely spa, gym, swimming pool- area entering with the special hotel bathrobe, I was asked this. Some of the receptionists didn`t seem very service-minded and friendly. The Hotel surely has a long story and good reputation. But we experienced either too much service or too slow service.

The Furstenhof in a word is outstanding, a few walkable blocks from the train station and the major, many attractions of a prideful city with a rich history of music and a present cultural scene. Our room was relatively large, and pleasantly decorated, the breakfasts were well presented and good, the ambience appropriately subdued. If there is a complaint, it was the desk's problems with English or whatever, insisting it did not have a packet I had been expecting to be waiting for me (with tickets for an evening concert.) . Several trips to the desk and it was found not by the clerk but by an alert bellhop, in time to make the concert. Other than that anxious few moments, it was all smiles for our 3 days there is an appealing city, and an outstanding hotel.

While visiting Leipzig for the Cirque du Soleil I stayed two nights in this awesome luxury hotel. The historic building is just awesome as well as the well decorated and very clean rooms. On breakfast they have a very friendly service as well as egg preparation on the the place. The hotel is located just a few steps from the train station in Leipzig as well as from the old town. So you can walk to nearly everything. When I will come back to Leipzig for a longer stay I will book this hotel for sure again.

Arrived early and got a room upgrade, really friendly and helpful reception staff. Had a really great room with all you could want for. Breakfast was good . My only complaint i was only stopping here for one night . Would stop here again.

Hotel Fürstenhof purports to be a 5-star hotel, even a luxury hotel. It has the best name of the Leipzig hotels but that is built on the past. The present is rather sad. Worst things first: the sofa suite in our Junior Suite looked like it had been pulled out of a rubbish yard. I expect they were very ugly and inappropriate to begin with but on top of that the seats were sagging all over the place and the covers were heavily stained. It is almost impossible to exaggerate how unpleasant they were but suffice to say we did not sit on them once. Breakfast was confusing and poor. We rang ahead to ask (1) whether we could order a la carte instead of having the buffet; and (2) whether they had fresh milk (not UHT or extended shelf-life). We were told that the answer to both questions was yes. We went downstairs and were told that we could only have the full buffet option but yes they did have fresh milk - of course they did! We went to reception on point (1) and they told us to just order what we wanted (eggs) and they would just charge us for a single buffet meal - fine, no problem. So we sat down and ordered. I had an omelette and a black coffee with (fresh!) milk on the side. After my coffee was delivered, I sniffed the milk and it obviously was ESL milk, not proper fresh milk. A waitress saw me sniffing and immediately rushed over to say that actually the milk was not proper fresh milk after all - would I prefer soy milk? No, I would not. The omelette consisted of 2 eggs with herbs that had been stirred up, cooked to dry plastic and then folded in half. We did not have breakfast in the hotel again (we went to Macis, which is great, by the way). Nobody came out to help us with our bags when we arrived but after I had managed to get all of our cases out of the taxi and started wheeling them into the hotel, a very pleasant pair did come to help us. No such luck on our departure where the staff watched me wheeling the bags out using one of their bellboy trollies and only came out when they were concerned that I had taken it too far from the hotel (about 15 metres to our waiting car) upon which they took the trolley back inside again. Just before our departure, we had tea in the room next to the lobby. The tea was a bit of a catastrophe - teabags, luke warm water and green tea instead of Darjeeling (though the waitress apologised and delivered the right tea after that). The bill for a single pot of tea and a bottle of water cost 15 euros - maybe a bit more, I can't quite remember. It wasn't all bad - the staff at reception were mostly good (and a couple of them in particular were very friendly and pleasant to deal with). Our junior suite was very large, though we would have preferred it to have been half the size and lacking the sofas and chairs. Overall, though, this was a rather sad affair and makes me severely doubt what exactly Starwood are doing with the hotels that do not make it into the "Luxury Collection" if this one qualifies.

December 2017 Fuerstenhof Leipzig is really showing signs of old age. Have stayed there numerous Times here is the latest. 1. slow terrible Wi-Fi in fact as low as zero reception worst WI-FI at any hotel where I have stayed in past 2 years. I ran a ping Test on WI-FI several times could not even run a speed test and when I could the results were slower than a dial up connection. 2. A huge positive is Carsten the front of house manager but he can’t do the impossible if infrastructure like WI-FI is failing. 3.Furniture in Suites need replacement especially sofas and chairs. 4. The carpet seams in the suites are all bad and separated with maintenance required. numbers were dismal. 5.Breakfast not very good it has gone downhill. Send chef to Hotel Imperial Vienna to relearn and see the quality of their Fruhstuck. Suggest Rip out all the tubs put in large showers with 10 gallon per minute shower heads. Business people want a powerful shower this hotel has terrible showers, Small in size with low water volume. No one uses tubs any longer unless they are separate from the shower so just remove the tubs. What should be a 5 is a 3 because of the terrible WIFI and old furniture and fixtures and other issues. Mr. GM you need to reinvest in refurbishing the hotel to retain regular guests. If you don’t we will never return again ever and you will see your Trip Advisor ranking start to drop. the Doctor Hit me with some LOVE ❤️💕 and a helpful VOTE!

We were upgraded to a junior suite, 304. Lovely room, spacious. Has a refrigerator & a large bathroom & very comfortable bed. We would definitely return here. An excellent hotel with a very attentive staff.
