Ok I went the extra ( minimal charge ) for room with balcony Well not just that which is good but the room was huge Had tea coffee facilities Bathrobes Only English news Channels Ten mins walk from main station Breakfast is €15 but tbh very good range and filled me until evening so worth it About 20 mins walk to the main attractions of city but pleasant Beware passing tram noise from early !
I have stayed twice in about three months. The first time I thought it rather strange. I think it is still a little odd but my impression has improved. The first time I stayed I had to stand for some time as there was no-one at reception. Then I was required to sign some sheet of paper confirming that I knew the dire consequences of having a cigarette in the hallowed hotel. As an Accor platinum member I have never seen anything like this in one of their hotels, or indeed any hotel. It is quite rude I think, and authoritarian, as if they do not trust their terrifying, addicted guests not to keep their hands off the tobacco. And I don't even smoke. The rooms are decorated in an, um, unique style, with Aristotle quotations juxtaposed with modern art portraits of Hollywood stars such as Bruce Willis. Apart from that, the rooms are decent and I have seen via being upgraded, and not being upgraded, two different standards. It is only one tram stop from the Hauptbahnhof, so it is well located. The prices are not too bad either.
This is a friendly hotel in the immediate proximity of Leipzig central station. I arrived early, and my room was not ready (yet). I was shown to the lounge, got a cup of coffee and could access the free wifi of the hotel. Ultimately I was shown my room, at the second floor, well stocked, and a comfortable bed and small office chair and table. Great. The downside is that when you enter the room you need to put your access card in a specific slot to kickstart the energy. No issues with that, but by doing so, the TV set springs to life and a blaring sound fills your room. Not so much appreciated and my suggestion is to kill that default (would spare a lot of energy in addition). Speaking of energy, by accident I had left my charging cable at home. I asked the ladies at the reception whether they had a solution and they had. One of them borrowed me her personal charger. That is cool. I returned it next day. So my punch line; nice hotel, great personnel.
Not been before, but will come again. For some reason the Novotel in Leipzig has closed, and I did wonder about the location of the Mercure Art. But it's not far from the main station, a tram stop is very conveniently placed nearby and it's the right side of town for the Zoo and one of the main parks. Also, the slightly quieter location meant I got an excellent night's sleep every night I was there. Room was excellent, modern, large bathroom, good-sized balcony. Breakfast worked well and I never had to wait for a table. I don't think they do evening meals but I wasn't after one anyway. Friendly staff and pleasant area at the front to sit, where I was offered a drink. Pity the lift packed up twice as my room was on the fifth floor, but they had someone in promptly to mend it. WiFi was free and worked well but you do have to keep logging in every time with a password and it covered only one item at a time. Overall I would certainly recommend it.
The hotel is situated close to main station but not in a tourist area (but close to a supermarket KONSUM), the rooms are great unconventional with an art touch. The staff was very friendly and helped with all questions. The status advantages where given; I didn't take breakfast.
Very disappointed the wifi did not work and the staff were not able to fix it in a reasonable time frame. This is just not acceptable for a hotel that is also used for business travel. No offer was made to compensate for the fact I had to go to another hotel to work. They just do not care.
Our first stay in this Art Mercure hotel was very pleasant and comfortable. The location just minutes from the old town is convenient especially as we arrived by car and found ample street parking- free after 18:00. Breakfast buffet was very complete offering a large choice of fruit, cold cuts, cheeze and egs..... Our room was large, modern yet very comfortable. The service friendly and efficient. In short a hotel we will certainly return to!
Located just outside of the city centre but within easy walking distance. Only 500 metres from the zoo - an ideal place to stay if visiting the zoo (which is excellent). Friendly and helpful staff and a good breakfast. Found the room a little cramped. Wifi worked okay. Parking in the hotel park is very tight and really only for small cars; we parked about 500 metres away in the zoo car park.
The Mecure hotel chain is piched at a market that is looking for modern practical good value comfort without u necessary frills and the nice to haves that you would expect at a more expensive price point. This hotel fits the expected profile. It's rooms are a step up fro Ibis a little more roomy with more storage. The breakfast is adequate and well presented with a menu piched to typical western tastes. Located just outside the old city about 15 minutes away from it and a similar distance from the train station this is a good choice for business or tourist visitors.
Room was spacious, oriented to the yard, so got not disturbed by the traffic.The bathroom well designed and decorated. Comfortable stay. The breakfast choice was OK, just the price of 15 EUR was more than I expected. Waking distance to old town. There is also nice Rosenthal park close to the hotel. Good hotel for runners
